Default Does ARE bring anything to this team?

I had to wonder this just by watching his play.

He's not particularly mind-blowing as a receiver. I'm thinking I'd rather see the young guys get in there.

His East/West stuttering style on returns is ineffective as well. It makes me think of what's Logan doing...hmmm

Here's an idea, cut ARE, bring back Logan and start the young wideouts.

It may be blasphemy to some and I used to be a big ARE supporter but I'm not seeing enough from this guy any more.

Well actually if Batch goes down ARE is probably our best option at QB.

Yes, the way things are now that is true.

Good for emergency situations for sure.

Cool Re: Does ARE bring anything to this team?

Not on the ST side of the ball.

He adds a veteran presence on the WR corp.

No sir. Not much.

i'm sure El will contribute once ben returns . there simply isn't many balls to go around right now. i don't expect to see much from him punt return wise , seems like as soon as he got to washington, his return mojo disappeared.
i didn't much care for the signing. him or battle. i thought it was a panic , knee jerk reaction to the quick lose of holmes. the main reason i didn't like it , was because adding him , coulda meant losing a young guy with potential, like brown.
instead the axe fell on logan , urbik, bailey ,and harris.. all guys that could've still been contributing 3 yrs from now, when EL and battle are out of the league.

Hard to judge our WR's with Ben out. Mike Wallace has been pretty quiet so far too but we know he's going to be a stud WR.

Agree almost 100%. Not sure he's going to contribute much at all when Ben comes back. He is, I guess, indispensable for right now, while all of our QBs are dropping like flies.

Bring Logan back! Have you watched him play this year? What has logan done? Did you think this out before you posted this?
