    Chris Williams. The kid from Canada that Trestman wants to replace Hester with. He's 5'8"/175lbs and runs a 4.3 forty. But I'd take Hixon as a possibility in the slot as well. Emery's bent on replacing guys who just do one thing with guys who do multiple things.

    It's tough to lose a guy whose been one of your more consistent players but his injuries have hurt and we've upgraded at WR to the point where he's no longer a necessity. I wish him well. He'll be playing for somebody somewhere this year.

    Everyone keeps saying it's sad to see one of the more "consistent" players gone. EB was consistent, yes. But he was consistently mediocre (at best). Now we have a chance for Wilson and/or Hixon to create competition and it saves us cap space that we can use to get more depth at other positions! Love this move, it was nice knowing ya, Earl!

    Not for nothing, but the guy was always hurt....how is that reliable? He played 16 games once in his career.

    He caught awesome TD catch from cutler this year corner back of endzone. Earl has great hands to bad wish him best. Though take awhile for me to get used to great wide recieving core and depth we have on it. Someone will fill that role Hixon has good hands and faster then earl. In the end his cap number was too much for being number 4 on the depth chart. I remember people being happy when earl got his first contract, seemed like a bargin.

    Must be getting ready for rd 2 of FA. Got this for Spotrac.com. We will need approx. 5 million for the drafted rookies so getting money makes no sense unless he is about to begin RD 2 of FA.

    Thanks for the stats BSBears. Don't know if Emery is going for another FA or just taking his medicine now. Wonder now how we rate with cap vs. other teams since we were top 5-6 this year.
