With the new kickoff rule I wouldn't mind losing battle, gay is a solid nickle back (not great but solid) and I'm not sure the youngins would be ready this year, at least not the start of it. My problem with cutting those guys and going after samuel this year is potentially losing more valuable players to sign Timmons next year. Samuel and Timmons isn't worth losing that amount of players (and/or draft picks) IMO. Plus not having crotch would leave us with reggie kelley as the fill in if any of our WR's go down.
We all want a solid #2 but it just doesn't seem feasible to sign a big name without losing Timmons or Troy P next year. I'd rather take our chances with the guys we drafted and try to coach them up. Bmac is serviceable for now. Lets hope he can get healthy and stay that way so we don't see a repeat of last year. *not that last year was soooo bad ;)
