    At this rate, Latimer will need only 28,5 seasons to reach Floyd's current receiving yards.

    But yea, they're close. They've done just about the same.
    What has he done this year? Nothing. Dude has been booty and I could care less the Pats sign him.

When I think about a couple of dropped passes by Fowler, and the "no-show" Cody Latimer, this would have been quite the coup. Sure wish he had fallen to us.

    No, the Pats have the second best record int he league, they had 31st priority on the waiver wire. So 29 teams passed on him.

    Nah...

    We already have Latimer and Norwood. Studs.
    They won't get a comp pick for him. If he lasts there the entire rest of the season (a big if) he's going to sign a 1 year low level contract next year. Not a contract that will make a difference when it comes to comp picks.

    Floyd has been a big disappointment in Arizona. His numbers are helped by playing in a pass heavy offense with Palmer but he is always near the top of the league in drops and this year was meant to be a breakout for him and he went missing.

    I wouldn't waste my time picking him up, especially this late in the season, and it seems other teams felt the same as the Pats have the #31 waiver claim.

    Regarding the pats in general it makes me laugh how they are always made out to be a genius organisation. Their draft classes the last 5 years have been below average and they have not done a great job in FA or retaining their better players.

    TB12 masks a lot of mistakes in that organisation.

    If by loaded you mean we have a lot of wide outs, then that's true. But the talent and production drop off after DT and Sanders is basically so bad, we might as well only have 2 receivers on the roster.

    As for Michael, wouldn't touch him but wouldn't be mad if we did cut one of the bums we have at wide out for him.

    I doubt we would want to bring him in this season, but this offseason he'd be an interesting player to look at given we can't seem to find someone to be a consistent 3rd option at receiver. Certainly his market value will be very low coming off this incident so it could be a low-risk move after some due diligence. Also not sure if he's in line for a suspension from personal conduct policy. I think he had some incidents in college with alcohol but I can't remember him having anything else at the pro level.
    No thanks. He hasn't done anything of note. Even last season when Arizona was a high flying offense he wasn't a big part. I'll pass. There has to be better options......like Sunshine!
