Default Shopping for a WR1

JMV is saying that he has heard that Ballard is committed to finding a proven (i.e. Non rookie) WR1 this off season. In other news, today Rooney issued a statement they are NOT releasing AB but inferred that everything else is on the table i.e. Trade.

I think the consensus in our previous discussion was hard pass on AB. This was my point of view as well but now I'm kind of in the camp of trusting Ballard to do his due diligence and supporting whatever decision he makes. I think he's earned that courtesy. Don't know who else would be on the market that fits the Proven WR1 profile. jMVs reports have been pretty reliable in the past so I'm inclined to believe his report.

Here are a couple names to keep an eye on:

1) Julio Jones (if Atlanta continues to have contract issues with him)
2) AJ Green

Love Antonio Brown's skillset, but he's acting like a bitch right now. He won't even return a phone call from the owner. Not sure I want this team to have to deal with a drama queen like that especially giving up draft picks to get him.

Would rather them go after one in the draft.

The Steelers Bell (RB) and Brown (WR) both would be a cancer to this locker room. Rather not pursue either

Finding a number 1? They have one, and he plays his ass of even when he's hurt.

They find 2 #2's and here we go. What about Cain? Are they just putting him on the back burner??

When is the last time that we had a solid #2. Garcon?

Didn't TY play with Reggie?

If that doesn't count, I'll go with Garcon

No, you're right, TY would have been the last good #2 WR in 2012.

My Steelers fans friends all say it is Rape-less burger who is the cancer in the locker room and insist that Brown is a good teammate. They also say that the issues currently are that ownership backs the QB in any issues and Brown finally got tired of his bullshit.

I'd take Brown and his skillset in a heartbeat. No need for Bell at this point.
