Default WR free agents

I know WR is not our largest area of need, but it is also
not completely solid, with Hines being over 35 and Randel
El not being much at this point either. So, it's not as if WR
is an area we can totally assume is good to go. I also
know Pgh's way is not to do much in free agency, but they
still look for some bargain deals once in a while.

vincent jackson (sd) -- too high profile/costly

sidney rice - Major baller but too costly
santonio holmes - hippie lettuce
braylon edwards - poor character
malcom floyd - ehhh
steve smith - wearing out
terrell owens - NO Fing way
randy moss - No Fing way
mike williams - no
james jones - no
steve breaston - worth considering if he came cheap
Early Doucet (ARZ) " " " "" "
Brian Finneran (ATL) " " ""
Donte' Stallworth (BAL) - NO. all Speed, makes 5 catches a season
TJ Houshmandzadeh (BAL) - Too much hatred. He sucked any how
Rashied Davis (CHI) - who?
Devin Aromashadu (CHI) - who?
Chansi Stuckey (CLE)- crap
Sam Hurd (DAL) - crap
Jacoby Jones (HOU) - no
Mike Sims-Walker (JAC) - Doubt it
Kevin Curtis (MIA) - only if bottom dollar
Hank Baskett (MIN)
Greg Lewis (MIN)
Lance Moore (NO)
Courtney Roby (NO)
Derek Hagan (NYG)
Darius Reynaud (NYG)
Brad Smith (NYJ) - not a WR
Johnnie Lee Higgins (OAK) - Upside. Raw, fast
Legedu Naanee (SD)
Ben Obomanu (SEA)
Laurent Robinson (STL)
Danny Amendola (STL) - short white guy
Mark Clayton (STL) - under-achiever
Maurice Stovall (TB) - big target
Santana Moss (WAS) - too old

I guess there isn't much there to even consider. Signing a FA WR
looks unlikely.

Breaston or Roby I'd take if they came at the right price. I wouldn't be upset with Naanee or Higgins either.

I wouldn't overlook Santana Moss either. If El doesn't stick around, he could fill that roll pretty well I think. He's better than El IMO. If we get a WR in FA it won't be to keep them around for a while either, it'll just be for depth and maybe a bit more of veteran experience.

I don't know either. I mean, I guess if he comes into camp (and doesn't injure himself this time), and completely wows the coaches, I say give him a shot at keeping a spot.

Personally though, I'd prefer to bring in an experienced FA over Sweed right off the bat.

If they want to bring him in for mini camps, etc. and early
in main camp, I could live with it. But not at the expense
of any more likely candidates to make it. You know, like
when the undrafted free agents are there, etc. But if he
doesn't go lights out by the first cuts, I hope they dump
him early.

It's the NFL. Anybody can reach their potential at any time. Look at Mike Williams in Seattle.

Steve Breaston is from Woodland Hills around Pittsburgh and I think he would be a great fit into our system.
