We have invested lots of high picks on the OL with little success. If this line was as good as it should be on paper, the season would be much different.

I think a big, strong, fast WR needs to be 1B on this list, if not just above LT to begin with. Having a guy Plax's size with Ward's strength would work wonders for this offense, especially with the way Antonio Brown has been playing, how good Le'Veon Bell looks like he'll be, and how valuable Heath Miller proved he really is.

What's contract status for Keisel and Hood? Ideally, I'd at least keep Keisel for one more year with Troy and would at least consider Hood

You literally have 0 cap room ...cthey are already over the cap for next yr

They should have a fire sell for all there veteran players to contenders and just take the salary cap penalty hit next yr

Have plenty of draft picks in these next 2 yrs and just be a rebuilding for 2 yrs

Get out from the salary cap hell and get some youth

I wish they would give moye more of a shot. This guy looked good all preseason. I believe he has only two snaps he played on during the season. One was catching that TD the other was giving Todd Haley's mother a fish hook while doing her from behind.

Yes.
But, like Larry Fitzgerald, Hundley is three years removed from high school, and thus, he's draft eligible.
