THE ICEMAN Posted May 20, 2011 Share Posted May 20, 2011 There was an article online that stated the Falcons may be the Favorites to sign Chad Ochocinco http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/atlanta_falcons_the_favorite_to_sign_chad_ochocinco/4746092So I though about it and if there were to really sign a WR who would they sign? I don't think they would Pay Sidney Rice huge money after getting Julio Jones and they recently extended Micheal Jenkins contract as well and to have a little fun I picked these three guys as there all in search of that first ring with TO and Moss coming very close before. And they all would probably get a 1 year deals as they could cut or release if they started being the "Diva's" they are so which would you sign Moss,TO or Ochocinco so lets look at there production as see what they could add at these stages of there Career's and in my Opinion there is one pretty good fit and the guy would be highly motivated to be back on a wining team.Terrell Ownes - 72 Catches 983 Yards 9 TDs - If your looking for a one or two type WR then Owens is your guy he's still pretty productive and is the best out of the three guys right now but remember the Falcons don't need a number one or two but if he came here they could find a fit he love to run block still goes over the middle and does all the dirty work just likes to talk a little to much but has been much better the past two years with the Bills and Bengales and could be a worth a try on a one year dealChad Ochocinco - 61 Catches 831 Yards 4 TDs - Out of the three guy he probably has the most high risk and high reward as he is only 33 and still could be a solid number two tpye of WR like a better version of Donald driver but the only thing I would worry about is out of the three guys he's been the biggest detraction over the last three seasons maybe thats just because he wanted out of Cincinnati the last three season but when he ran the wrong routes or just gives up on plays thats what worries me the most like most of Plamer's picks were his fault but Chad did run very poor routes or the wrong ones and caused some of the turn overs but he knows the plays and on top of that he once was viewed one of the best route runners in the NFL so take that for what it is(Just didn't want to be there in my opinion). But I just think he would be the worst fit and simply wouldn't get the ball enough and could be the 4th option behind Roddy,Julio and Tony Gonzalez I don't think that would sit well with him being the 4th option So noway I see this happening.Randy Moss - Catches Yards TDs - Randy has been a detraction off the field but not to the effect of the other two guys and now more than most he just really wants to be on a winning team and would be the best fit for the Falcons. But he's not a number one any more but could be that third guy and has been great with young players and read coverages know how to make in game adjustments and stuff like that and even at 34 I still believe could have his way with any teams 2nd or 3rd best CB he'd be asked to run deep routes in the slot and thats what he's best at so I think he would be the best fit and simply I trust him more than the other two guys to day in and day out put in the work necessary to be successful. And was having a solid season in NE and would have been around 800-1000 yard and 10TDs or so so he can still play.What it would mean if we signed any of these guys?[/b] - It would also mean the Falcons would probably have to let Micheal Jenkins go simply because you don't want to pay a guy like Jenkins starter money to be the 4th or 5th option and Jenkins has been a pretty good guy on and Off the field so the Falcons would let him go were he could go start for another team. I do think they would try to trade him first he not a number one but in the right situation is a 70 catch 800 yard guy. A good fit would be a teams like the Lions or Buc's were he could be the 2nd or 3rd option. But it would basically mean who would you want out of any of these three guys over Jenkins? Me I think Moss would be the only guy I'd want over Jenkins and its pretty close because Moss had a pretty bad year last year and you have to ask what does he have left at 34. But Coaches he played for have stated hes great with young guys and you put him with a guy like Julio Jones who has all the Talent in the world and maybe 2-3 years from now we have the best WR in football in Jones but its kind of what Joe Horn did for Roddy White but I think Moss would be great in the Redzone and in the slot on 3rd downs just what we needBut on another WR I think they'd look for a guy like Lance Moore before they signed any of these three guys or find some like Lance Moore who could fit slot spot. But I'd say they probably won't anybody if they still believe in Harry Douglas Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
