Age stratified position tends to be more stable than relying on a bunch of rookies.
    100% YES to this

    A few of our young wr's have looked terrific at camp but they are still unproven. JC is a proven pro and that likely keeps him with us. Got to talk a bit to JC as well at camp and he was very positive with the fans not just with me.

    Hell No!! What are the odds of our WRs staying healthy the entire year? It's great having a guy with Cotchery's ability coming off the bench to being able to contribute right away. Plus, with not knowing when Heath will be back we will probably run more 4 receiver sets with Cotch being that 4th receiver. The guy is too good to essentially give away.

    Is anyone else glad that Burress is out of the equation and there will be no temptation to pick Burress over Cotchery?

    I'm not glad he was hurt. But I do think Burress was finished. He was so slow according to reports. Not sudden quickness at all. But I see your point.

    I agree. Not glad he is hurt but sure glad the temptation was removed because I think he proved he was done last season.
