Bey your thoughts
I don't care about this one either way.
I am PUMPED! This makes the Lance Moore signing a lot better for me! Bey can go deep and draw that safety while Brown, Moore, and Miller can work underneath. LOVE LOVE LOVE this signing and he helps me like the Lance Moore signing as well. Way to go Steelers!!!! The Blount signing and now this? WOW!
2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 511 189
3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 66 240-Jarvis Jones replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 64 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 67 322-raw talent with ton of upside
7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 510 210
7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5 10 185-need WR depth and returner
Player A: 169 Catches, 2380 yards, 14.1 YPC, 12 career TDs.
Player B: 161 Catches, 2030 yards, 12.6 YPC, 11 career TDs.
Player A did have one more season, but otherwise the numbers between the two are relatively comparable. Player A is DHB, and player B is Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders, of course, played with Ben his whole career, while Bey caught passes from a bunch of homeless guys in Oakland before playing with Luck last year.
I think that Sanders is the better receiver (though he had 740 yards last year, compared to 975 for DHB), but he's going to be making $5-6 million per year, whatever the number is, while Bey likely signed for the veteran minimum.
DHB - 169 receptions on 362 targets
Sanders - 161 receptions on 278 targets
DHB had 8 more receptions on 84 more targets. That should tell you something.
Another thing is DHB started 64 games where Sanders started 19. Not really fair to compare stats between players when Sanders played on a team with a much better receiving corp than the one DHB played on. If DHB had been on the Steelers he never would have seen the field.
