    Anyone who can stay in the field!
    Honestly I don’t think we need to sign a wideout we have stills, frank, Ford, albert, and maybe we draft one

    Also, isn't Butler still on the roster, as he had the body type to replace Parker?

    Most outlets have us moving on from Stills in some fashion - be it either releasing or via trade.

    The issue is that the WR crop of free agents is pretty thin. This is, of course, bad for the possibility of us signing talent (Tyrell Williams will be out of our budget), but could be good if it lets us trade Stills for a decent pick.

    That leaves us with a few small dudes who were injured and a few of the randos that we always seem to want to pump up but who really never work out. Hard to see us not adding at least 1-2 guys via free agency and/or the draft.

    FA wise, I would look on the end with guys who would come cheaper, but have a high potential ceiling. Kevin White, Devin Funchess, maybe a Moncrief - guys who have underperformed but may benefit from a change in scenery. Essentially, go after other teams DeVante Parker for cheap.
    Draft wise, it wouldn't shock to see us take a WR decently early depending on how things fall. The kid from Arizona State in round 2 would be intriguing. If not, look for a mid round guy.

    Looking at New England is an interesting exercise, but I am not sure how much that really helps. They have had success with tight ends, but have largely struggled with WR, mainly using trades and free agency to bring in guys. Edelmen seems about the one big homegrown hit they have had.

    Well, you all know that I love DeVante and don't want to move on from him, but I understand that the team very well may let him go.

    If we do, I like Devin Funchess a lot. Great size, and he's good at getting open in the zone and making catches for 12-15 yards to get the first down. I think that he was badly hampered by how scattershot that Cam Newton is. I'd love to make a player like him a focal point of our passing game instead of someone like Wilson or Grant.
