While wide receiver isnt the most pressing need on this team i believe it still needs some upgrading. This years draft is deep in WR and would could get a prospect there, but as an alternative to that I think there are some quality guys out there in free agency that could come in and help us.
Now most of these guys are big names that are older and most likely on their decline, but guys like Marvin Harrison , Joey Galloway, and Torry Holt (if he gets released) are all guys that could come in and help us out for a year or two or possibly three. I have always been a person who favors younger players, but in this case for this year I think we should get a quality WR in free agency. We should use our draft picks to build up other weakness on the team like d-line, o-line, and of course linebacker.
We could probably get any three of these guys at a reasonable deal and I think they could make a real impact for Cassel and our offense. Another wild card would be Keary Colbert. He came out a few years ago from USC, and was actually a roomate with Matt Cassel in college. He hasnt been highly productive at all in the NFL yet, but he will only be 27 when the season starts and I think his connection with Cassel would be a good fit. The good news is that there have been some "reports" that the chiefs might be interested in him, but who knows what the Chiefs braintrust is actually thinking anymore.
So I'm interested to see what the people around here think, should we address the wide receiver position more through the draft or free agency this year and who would you go with?
