Heckert said in a press conference a while back that he was happy where we stand at WR and didn't consider the position a priority. I hope he is playing things close to the vest, or has something up his sleeve, because the WR position is lacking in my opinion.
We Have Mo Mass, who while coming into his own after the B.E. trade is still wet behind the ears. Robo had a hard time getting on the field but looked like things were starting to click in the last couple of games. Stucki is promising, but once again, young and inexperienced. Furrey has not been resigned and played more on defense than offense at the end of the season. I know nothing about the guy we signed off of Green Bay's practice squad in November.
Last year David Patten was the veteran brought in to mentor the young guys. Before that, this presence was Joe Jurevicious. I'd really like to see a veteran wideout added to the roster, but unlike Patten, one that could really push the younger guys for playing time. The other aspect of this type of player is someone that shows the young guys how to prepare and be a good teammate. This would probably eliminate the biggest name left out there, T.O. He's been on his best behavior for two seasons now, but I don't see him being the mentoring type.
After Jake Delhomme was signed Mushin Muhammed seemed like a logical choice for this role, but I'm not familiar enough to say whether he has anything left in the tank at 37 years old.
Here's a link to all the free agent WR's. Most any of the real attractive names have been resigned or scooped up already.
Who that is available strikes some interest?
