Default Re: Something has to give with Wallace NOW

I don't think anything has to give NOW. I think there's still time. If he doesn't show up somewhere between August 17th and September 1st, then it's situation critical. Obviously the sooner he shows up the better, but I honestly don't see him skipping training camp as overly detrimental to the 2012 season, even if it ultimately means that Wallace will have to learn some things on the fly. I also don't see them bringing in a free agent unless both 1) Wallace never shows up and 2) one of the top 3 guys get injured. Otherwise, there's a roster spot or two for somebody like Toney Clemons, Derrick Williams, David Gilreath, Marquiz Maze, or Tyler Beiler.

Having on a "3 deep" receiving corps would not be overly limiting, I think. All it would do is vary the packages that they use, i.e. more tight ends and running backs in passing situations.
