We don't know if Blackmon will be the Blackmon we ALL envision him to be. I'm proposing to look elsewhere just incase JB's holdout drags & barely gets any reps during TC.
I'm certainly surprised to see that WR Plaxico Burress is still a FA. I thought he played well his first year back, putting up adequate numbers. At this point, I'm sure he'll either sign prior to the regular season and/or pending any injuries, if not retire at once.
I know he's a much older player, 35 next month, but the thought of him being entirely washed up & still carrying around a low-character is false. Why don't we sign him as a camp body (vet minimum with some guarantee only if he makes the final 53) & see what he can do. Can he improve our corps in any way? Is he any upgrade to what we already have? I believe so.
Last year, his name only came up when he actually did something, played a good game, etc. He's no diva, & I think he could solidify a spot of importance; not to mention we need a guy of his stature for certain situations/scenarios in which he should accommodate us for (redzone, jump balls, veteran leadership/presence,etc). Make no mistake, I'm not playing the "sign anyone & everyone" game just to waste space on this site. Just my 2 cents.
