I really believe that Jerry Porter or Bryant Johnson would be the better additions. Both are younger and have the size that Ben is requesting. I strongly believe Porter would be the wild card like Randy Moss was for New England. Porter is fast and strong and can stretch the field like Holmes. I would be satisfied with either or but would prefer Porter.

Wilson was fine last year. His production doesnt justify his contract, but the reason his production has been low is he didnt get that many oppurtunities in 2007. He didnt have many drops and he stepped up a few times.

Is Wilson anything special? No way, but Id rather have him than a 35 year old reciever who gets winded walking out of the tunnell, has noodle legs by halftime and cant catch nearly as good as he used to.

Wilson may not be that good, but at this point, he is a better option that Moose.

If you guys want to cut Wilson, thats fine, but at least talk about bringing in a replacement who would be an upgrade over him.

Moose wouldnt be. Period.

Well I'd have to disagree cause I feel Moose's declining numbers are more a product of the system and team he played for than anything else. But that's cool, we'll agree to disagree. I'm not looking for a #1 or #2, I want a solid #3 for Ben to throw to that doesn't drop the ball like Nate does and has the ability to seperate and get open unlike Cedric.

Well, I have no problem agreeing to disagree, but if you think Moose is getting much seperation these days, you should go back and watch him play this year. His hands arent nearly as good as they used to be either.

Washington is starting to come around and I can albeit guarantee he would beat out Muhammed for the number 3 job. If we cut Wilson, I see us either drafting another WR or bringing a reciever like Wilford or Malcolm Floyd.

Believe me, I liked Moose, but he is nowhere near the same player he once was. He is still a pretty good blocker, but he doesnt catch as well, run as fast or get seperation nearly as good as he used to.

Thats just wasting money on an over the hill player that will just take up space and probably retire in 2 years.

Only need a couple years out of him at the Number 3 to produce more than Ced has lately and groom a young WR, if it isn't Nate or Dallas Baker...just trying to be a realistic guy here. Figure he'd come cheap, has had a rough time playing for the QB less Bears and maybe a shot of "playoff" bound tradition of Pittsburgh would do him good. We aren't the 1 good season in 8 Panthers or the 2 good Seasons in 10 Bears. We are a pretty solid franchise that a Vet like him could find himself some new life with.

I personally just really want a Center first and foremost. But that won't happen. I'm still concerned as to who the heck is snapping the ball next year, because its obvious, Mahan, can't do that job for Pittsburgh.

I understand your reasoning, and I respect it, but I am just not big on bringing in an old timer on his last legs. We have a far better recieving corps than Chicago and they are cutting him, so that tells me he really isnt worth signing unless a team is really desperate, and I dont believe we are.

And I think we can all agree that Mahan needs replaced. I believe he will still be starting next season, but I really hope we find someone better, which doesnt seem like a daunting task, but might be.

i think that we do have a nice wr core with the 4 wr's we have.. reid is getting better and could be a underneath route runner for ben to throw too.. not unless there is a good talented wr in the draft when we are drafting i say keep the wr's

I'd say cut wilson and reid,then bring in somone for the no. 3 slot reid just is not living up to his potential he is a waste of roster spots.
