    We're going to need to add a receiver to the depth chart now that Britt is out for the season. Probably in the next few days we'll invite a group to Tennessee to workout. Here's a list of possible candidates:

    Randy Moss (The most popular and unpopular choice)
    TJ Houshmandzadeh (Played with Hasselbeck in Seattle)
    Justin Gage
    Donnie Avery
    David Clowney

    Tiquan Underwood (another Rutgers receiver)
    Limas Sweed

    Anyone else? I don't think Terrell Owens is a realistic option considering he's rehabbing an ACL of his own. Wish we would have signed Quan Cosby a week earlier but hindsight is 20/20.

    I think Houshmanzadeh is the best option because he's worked with Hasselbeck before and he seems to be the best receiver available..

    This.

    But that doesn't mean we can't still continue to play well and win games. We have some talent at receiver and hopefully some guys can step up. We will need to pick up another receiver either way.

    I can't see Hasselbeck caring all that much about playing with TJ. Didn't seem like any sort of special connection. Also seemed pretty clear TJ was on the downside.

    Damian Williams and Lavelle Hawkins both have the talent to be good, they just need to hang onto the football and run better routes.

    Donnie Avery doesn't have a team right now? Him or Gage would be my top pick-ups

    Why not elevate someone from the practice squad? Isn't Figurs on there? I know he was close to actually making the team from what I have heard.
