Yes, Graham will be 32.   Yes, Graham only had 500 or so yards.  Yes, Graham had his lowest yards per catch of his career.

Yes, Graham had only 10 TDs...oh well, we just need to sign a 6-7 cornerback to guard him in the redzone.

Graham was really good 5 years ago. It's not like he is going to get better at 32.

Jordy Nelson is STILL open deep in the Bears secondary.

Maybe we should be looking to sign Jordy. Although probably not now that we already signed two WR's.

Saw this today from the Jets:  Report: McCown informed he will be starter

(note to Josh:  don't believe them - with the 6th pick in the draft it's not going to be your year)

This may sound goofy, but if I am the Browns and I am in love with both Darnold and Barkley. Why not trade up from 4-2 and get both for sure? I expect the Giants to take Barkley or trade out of #2. They have a ton of needs. They could use the picks that the Browns have stashed. Plus moving down 2 picks isnt going to kill them. They can still get a QB.

Or Browns simply take Barkley at 1.  Giants and Colts are not sure things to take a QB.  You might not get Darnold at 4 since Giants would be getting offers, but Browns might get Rosen or Allen.

Gee, Cardinals fans must be thrilled they signed Sam Bradford, and now have reportedly reached agreement with Glennon.

They draft 15, surely they would look to move up.

That is a great QB room.  But two terrible QB's on game day.

They are drafting a QB.

Likely already have deals in place to move up.

Bradford was on fire before he injured his knee (124 rating) - if he's healthy Cardinals got a pretty good QB.

If Cards feel they must draft a QB they might find Rudolph or Lamar Jackson at 15.

I do not understand why we do not go after Nelson - so, so year last year - but year before he was great. Your receiving corps fo way up then to a strength.

Nelson is old.  Look at the ages or the players we targeted.  By the time the Bears expect to be really competing he will be done and we will be looking to fill that hole again.  Not to mention the fact that he knows this and the only reason he would sign is for big $ since he knows it wont be to compete for another SB.

Just say no.

Nelson will soon be 33.  Its unusual for a WR to be as productive as he was in his 30s.  Big dropoff last year but some of that could be from the QB situation.  He might have a year or two left but not at what he once was.  Someone will sign him.

Nelson should take Amendols's place in New England.
