    I agree with this.

    Look what Prisco said (article link: http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/...ce-is-better-fa-receiver-option-than-jennings)

    If you want polished routes, smart play against zone coverage and the ability to adjust to the football, the 29-year-old Jennings is your man.

    The 26-year-old Wallace is speed player capable of taking it 65 yards anytime he touches the football.

    Jennings is the reliable car. Wallace is the drag racer.
    Jennings is the guy who shows up every week to do his job.
    Wallace flashes and then disappears.

    Even though that article is for Wallace, Jennings is the guy we need. We have speed guys, we need a guy who can be Lockers safety blanket... what Reggie Wayne was to Andrew Luck.

    Oh I've lost all hope that kenny can ever emerge as anything more than a part-time player, but what I'm saying is we have no real No.1 WR even with Wallace.

    I will admit, Wallace and CJ on the field together is a scary thing. And Jake loves throwing bombs 60-yards within 4 seconds, can Wallace run 60-yards in 4 seconds...

    Not sure Wallace is a guy any team should be targeting for the kind of money he wants. He's a very specific kind of receiver. Not really a number one.

    With Wright already in the fold, it seems to me the Titans would be better off going after a big-bodied possession receiver who can make plays in the red zone. That's not at all what Wallace is.

    Jennings is reliable?

    Maybe 3 years ago. Guy is always hurt now. Sure, he doesn't get into trouble like KB, but do we want two WRs who are injury prone? No way.

    We missed out on Bowe. Sign Wallace. Steal another Steelers WR and make them hate us like we hate them.

    This.


    Wallace had 3 TD's inside the 20 last year, not really the type of guy I thought we'd be after

    but that speed is enticing, especially when our QB just throws balls in the air and hopes for the best

    Was he not the Steelers #1 receiver. They offered him a lot to stay. He's the best receiver in FA. Are we better off without Wallace? You'd rather Britt be our #1 and Damien be on the field? Nate doesn't have much left to offer either.

    Well IDK if he really is or isn't their No.1

    he had less catches than Antonio Brown and Heath Miller so maybe he's not the go-to guy there

    Where Wallace was on the depth chart of the Steelers isn't what matters.

    What matters is that he's not the prototypical "Number 1" receiver, meaning the guy you can throw a fade to when you have the ball deep in the red zone and have him go up and get that ball using his physical dominance.
