    Simpson did make some clutch catches for us last season, and his average of over 15 yards/catch would be pretty high on the list of WR who caught over 40 balls last season. BUT, he is likely facing suspension by the league, AND quite possibly jail time for violating probation. I don't think he's going to get many offers, and could be had for cheap on yet another, one year, prove (I can stay out of trouble) it deal.

    However, I would also like to see us look for an upgrade for 3rd WR since he's nearly guaranteed to miss some time. Shit, if Thielen and/or Smith step up, he might even get beat out by what we already have!??

    And, there is some serious depth at WR in this draft. We could look for some potential there too.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Zimmer must see something the past staff didn't.
    I am optimistic and will use a wait and see attitude.
    Go ahead back up your to close away.

    Our 3rd WR is Jarius Wright, and dont say hes not good enough to be a number 3, cause i think Richard Sherman will tell you he is.....lol..... but i do think that Smith should get his shot this year, hes a big target 6'6",200+ lbs with above average hands

    I agree. Simpson is nothing, we need an explosive player like Wright on the field as much as possible.

    Sp he caught RS with a double move as he was looking in the backfield. Is he consistent? Nope, Can we count on him to be a game changer? Nope. What did he do after that? Nothing. Did we get blown out? Yup.

    I'm off to the gym. Replacing good character with good looks is a cornerstone of my comeback strategy.

    Jarius is not with the team anymore so now I have no idea who is the 3rd wide receiver now
