    The only free agent WR left that I’d take a shot on would be Plax, but I don’t see it happening. Judging by Marvin’s recent comments, it looks like the team may be content with going WR in the draft–perhaps even in round 1 (Malcolm Floyd?)

    I really like Hawkins as a slot guy-Welker type, but I’m souring on Shipley due to his extensive injury history (in college and with the Bengals). I just don’t see him as a long-term solution unfortunately.

    One guy not mentioned is Binns. According to reports, the offensive coaching staff was lobbying for him to be active towards the end of last season, and he was beating our DB’s as the scout team’s primary receiver. He may be in the plans opposite Green.

    Either way, I see them drafting a wide-out fairly high at this point–either in the first or second round.

    If they were smart, they would sign TE Dreesens and Michael Bush, release Brian Leonard (a pale Michael Bush), and then take away Wallace from the Steelers for their second No. 1 pick. Your third down package would be Green, Dreesen, Gresham, Bush and Wallace (or remove Bush or Dreesen and add Shipley). Anything short of 3rd and 15 should be easy pickings.

    Money could be playing a role in this as well. The team may feel pretty good about its receiver talent and would rather acquire an extra body cheaply in the draft and save money for other spots. But it’s still early, so who knows? For better or worse, I don’t think you can rule out the return of Jerome Simpson either.
