    WR depth. Could compete with Hixon and Wilson at #3 WR or could end up #4 WR. Also in mix for kick returner as well.

    Another good signing by Emery. Low risk high reward. He put up pretty good numbers for SF and his 1st year in Washington.

    cannot imagine it cost much, guessing depth and ST contributor.

    I'm all for being proactive and casting a wide net. There could be some surprises when you get to camp. If they fall out, no harm - no foul.

    Just one more inexpensive vet #4 WR type who can also return kicks. He's only 28 so he's pretty much in his prime right now. I have no problem with us signing any WR who make it possible to avoid drafting one. We need as many picks as possible to go towards defensive starters and depth.

    He's just one more guy in there to compete for a spot and if he doesn't succeed he costs us nothing expect a small bonus if we even offered him one. We're just renting these guys for camp. We don't have to own them until the final roster is complete. He's an OK pickup but nothing special.

    Funny, the shrinks have a completely different word for it??????? Starts with a P and it's a very long word but I'm sure it has something to do with a multiple personality disorder. That may be a good thing though. When I'm old enough to apply for SS benefits maybe I can collect on all four of us.

    Hmmm.....................

    They let you collect for all of your personalities? I like that. A few of your personalities should have at least 10 kids each. This could work..... I need to start a few applications....

    A few of me can start at the beginning of the alphabet and a few of me can start at the end and it won;t take long at all!

    Yeah but then we'd have to sign Jesus as his OC and at his age I'm not sure The Lord could hold up for a 16 game season. Besides with Garza and de la Puente we really don't have spot for him and yet it would very unwise to invite him for a tryout and then reject him. Created one hell of a mess for the Jewish Rabbi's in the Israeli League some years back.

    I think we have to pass on both of them for now.

    We need him. Cutler can only tie a shoe, but Tebow will wash their feet too. Hey, I can't help it... I like the guy. I'd like to see him get a chance.

    I agree with Soul... these one year deals do not guaranteed a spot... basically a camp body and creates competition to decide whose the best of the best behind the likes of BMarsh and Alshon. lso Emery & Co. can get a reading on these guys during OTAs and camp in order to have some options down the road if injuries rear their ugly head on offense.

    Plus camp competition is a great thing because it pushes guys to do better and be better.

    Emery and Co. are really doing things the right way.
