Does San Fran, Baltimore, Seattle, Denver, Pittsburg,green Bay, New Engalnd, Have A $15 Millon Dollar Receiver?


Recommended Posts

No, these teams consistently go to SuperBowls and make play-offs without overpaying WRs. So why would we? Trade Julio to Tennesse and get Leonard Williams out of USC. We need an identity of toughness as a franchise and this guy brings it. Then use #8 pick to get OL out of Iowa or Perryman LB out Miami. We still have Hester, Roddy, and now Hankerson. All serviceable receivers. We don't need Julio. Julio will be constantly hurt throughout his career. Bank on it. And for all you people saying that we need Julio to sell tickets that is incorrect. Winning sells tickets. If Julio caught 14 TDs a year on a 5 to 7 win team no one cares. When we went to the SuperBowl we had Tony Martin and Terrance Mathis. But we played good defense and RAN the football. Back to basics.

I semi-agree....

but take out SF and Seattle because they didn't have to pay their QBs. You can take out Denver, New England, and Green Bay because they have 3 of the greatest QBs to ever live. That only leaves Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Baltimore has one of the best FO's in the NFL, they both have great coaches (although some might say Tomlin isn't great), and Roethlisbeger is/was a top 5-7 QB for his career and Flacco, while not posting the greatest regular season numbers, does nothing but win in the playoffs.

So, you're right, but there are other circumstances than just the WR factor.

Lol u people kill me. We trade Julio and these other guys slack off then you will be saying we need a wr watch and see & Julio is diff I can't just say the Julio I see and how humble he is wants all that money so be careful about the bs rumors you hear as that may not exactly be true. People spread rumors about normal everyday ppl so to think they won't do it to athletes is absurd

It is because these franchises don't over spend at the WR and invest their money in their Lines, LBs, and TEs. That they are successful. If you do what you always do you get what you always get. I know it is cliché but success in football is built from inside out. O-line, D-line, TE's, LBs. This is where you spend your money. There are 1000s of serviceable receivers and RBs available. WR and RB is where you should spend least amount of money. Who is Green Bays RB? , New Englands? Denver? See a pattern? Money should be in o and d lines. First and foremost.

Whoa...you lost me at draft Perryman with our #8 pick. NO.

I'm not opposed to the idea of the following though under your misguided plan, but why would TEN trade for a player that will cost them $15 million/yr when they could draft Cooper or White who will be much cheaper, and fractionally worse...actually better, b/c Julio will be injured.

1. Leonard Williams DT

1. Vic Beasley DE

2. Damarious Randall FS

3. Stefon Diggs WR

4. Jeremy Langford RB

5. Sean Hickey OG/OT

6. Darren Waller WR/TE

7. Zach Zenner RB

7. James Casteleman DT

Iceman Ryan,

I would trade Julio, get Williams out of USC, OL out of Iowa at #8 and if he is not there then I would get Perryman out of Miami. Williams is THE top D-lineman in this years draft, Scherff from Iowa is THE top O-lineman in this years draft and Perryman is THE top LB in this year's draft. Tennesse will trade the 2nd pick because they want Mariotta who will be available late first round early 2nd. Which is stupid in my opinion because Mettenberger is a fine QB but hey this is Tennessee problem not mine. Trade Julio get the man.

Denver will have one in Demarius Thomas. Seattle doesnt have a 15 mil WR but they did just give up a 1st round pick for a 1o mil TE. Pittsburg will have one in Antonio Brown. Green Bay just paid Cobb even though they have Nelson and drafted a WR last year early. YOu have alot of holes in your theory sir

First of all if Julio hits free agency I'm 99.9% certain that 31 other teams will be interested. Second of all Pittsurgh has Antonio Brown at a huge discount and his next contract will be similar to what Green Bay just paid Jordy Nelson.

Second of all there are only about 3 receivers in the NFL that are on Julio's talent level. Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, and Antonio Brown( although he doesn't have the physical attributes that the other 3 do).

to can take a lot of them off the list, because other than New England, and recently Seattle. Nobody is constantly in the Super Bowl.

The better question is are there any other teams with $20 million tied into that one position

Redskins are one of few really bad teams with a lot of money tied up at WR. Aside from us.

The idea of not needing an elite reciever to win a Superbowl is correct. An elite receiver is a not a premium position but more of a luxury. Not a necessity. History shows this as being the case. Don't deny history.

It's hard to justify spending 20 million on the offensive side of the ball when the organization has shown for years they can't even build a proper defense.

You don't *need* an elite anything to win a SB, that's the only thing that's been proven as far as SB's go; no two teams win the same exact way.

Denver has Deymarius Thomas

Pittsburgh has Antonio Brown

Green Bay has Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb

So like half the teams on your list have tons of money tied to the WR position, or will once Thomas and Brown get new contracts.

And I'm sure San Francisco and Baltimore would love to have a legitimate #1 WR. Just because they don't have one on the roster doesn't mean they wouldn't want one.

Seattle traded a 1st round pick for Percy Harvin. And then traded a 1st round pick for Jimmy Graham, who is basically a #1 WR, and makes a ton of money for a TE.

New England is the only team on this list that seem content to play without a true #1 WR.

Gronk works pretty well as a #1 receiver.
