We all know that Ben has been wanting a tall receiver for a while, so now we will get to see what his plans for one is. But the thing with Spaeth, his hands are 50/50 he'll catch a ball right in his hands, he's not that fast and "it appears" Lyons may be able to go 1ft to 1 1/2 ft higher vertically than Spaeth IF that is the way the team intends to use him... Lyon's also has a 2 yr term with the team... so, we'll see.
