Default Mike Furrey, Free Agent WR

Now its time for me to officially pimp Mike Furrey as a free agent WR pickup that may come cheap. http://www.mikefurrey.net/on_field.php

The guy has returned kickoffs and punts, but nothing spectacular. I think he might be a nice addition as Nate Washington probably leaves in free agency.

Furrey is basically Cedric Wilson. Good 3rd WR that will catch the football and provide special teams help.

With Holmes, Ward, Sweed.....I think he becomes a nice guy to have on a 3 year contract for probably $850k a year.

If Washington goes we HAVE to have a veteran reciever to compete with Sweed in camp for the 3 spot. Furrey would be a perfect fit for this role/special teams.

Pretty much any wide receiver in the league would be an OK replacement for Washington, so as long as he's not demanding a ton of money, why not.

Furrey may have better hands than Nate. Not sure. If he's cheaper he may very well be an upgrade there and he can compete with Limas. I like the idea actually. Only difference is Nate knows our offense and Ben.

I can see Furrey as a Wes Welker-Type.
