TO and our future at wide receiver I’m not quite sure what to make of Keyshawn being released. I didn’t really want TO, but now we need it. I’m pretty sure we’ll sign him because unless Keyshawn wanted a big raise, we didn’t cut Key for salary reasons. He was slated to make just $2.5 million, which is a steal for a starting wide receiver. I’m pretty sure they cut it to make room for some considerable improvement in our receiving corps. TO could give us a real shot at winning the Super Bowl if he can keep his mouth shut.
Our offense will be one of the best in the league if we can improve along the line. Combine this offense with a young and improving defense, and you have a very good chance to be playing by the end of January. If this happens, all we need is to get a good kicker to complete a killer team. The long-term future of our receiving body is rather cloudy. Glenn has two good years left. Crayton may be a solid #2 possession receiver, but that’s about it. I’m a big fan of saving some money this year and making a run at Javon Walker. He is young and a very good receiver. It will be tough to re-sign Witten, James and Johnson (or a different center) and still get Walker, but I’m sure we can. Imagine Walker, Crayton, Witten and a speedster from the third round of the 2006 draft as receiving targets. TO could possibly fit into this plan, but I would just try to get a good year out of him and be able to do it. He has three big years left if he can stay healthy, but I say he turns into a cancer after that. However, anything is possible with him. UPDATE: We signed it, so I guess we’ll find out what it’s like to have a great time. He can change my opinion on wide receivers. I never really thought you needed a tremendous wide receiver on your team.
I’ve always leaned towards having good offensive lines, quarterbacks and running backs, while having solid receivers like Glenn and Key of the past few years. My opinion is probably based on the fact that Dallas hasn’t had one since I follow them so religiously.
