Hmmmm....for some reason I think Harold and Chase prefer Golden Tate over James Jones.

Renaming it the "Spreecast" isn't going to change the fact that so many on here despise Corey.

How aggressive do you predict the Jets to go after a top Free agent like Byrd, DRC, Ward, Orakpo?

If you like Kerley this much Brian it makes sense why you would want Tate.  I love Kerley, but I think Tate is a little better WR and a much better Punt Returner. 


Corey:  If you think Kerley can be a #2/3 how can you think Tate is a #3?  He plays on the outside and produces at a solid level.  I think Tate is a solid #2 no question on that issue.

"Teammate Percy Harvin is one of the most dangerous players in the league with the ball in his hands, averaging a missed tackle for every 4.7 receptions in the last three seasons. Who is the only player with a better rate on 100 receptions? That would be Tate, who amazingly averages a missed tackle for every 2.8 catches."


"His 3.9% Drop Rate in that span is the lowest of any wide receiver in the NFL with 100 targets. Tate makes up for his lack of height with an incredible ability to pinpoint the ball in the air, and Russell Wilson is never afraid to give him a chance for a contested catch. Tate’s 189 yards on scramble plays in the last two seasons is the third-most in the NFL, a testament to his rapport with his quarterback."


"He’s earned a +20.8 overall grade in the past two seasons, placing him among the Top 25 wide receivers"




James Jones is NOT a better option over Tate.

Corey:


Golden Tate also returns punts.  Plus he is a good player for 5 million per year at 26 years old is a solid investment for the next 5 years.  So we upgrade our WR corps and our return unit in signing.  You mention Jones who is 30 years old as someone you prefer over Tate doesn't make a lot of sense.  We want a player who can be on the squad for a long time and grow with our QB.

Corey, Golden Tate is a way better then a #3. I have Maclin on top of my FA WR list, followed by Sanders and then Tate. Julian Edelman got a $5+ million last off-season.

Brick has only missed 2 snaps in his CAREER

People forget Aboushi was a huge steal in the 5th, who was a potential 2nd round pick. I could see Oday excelling at RG or RT. I think a right side of Howard and Aboushi has the potential to be supremely athletic.

What kind of contract could you see Austin Howard garnering form Gang Green?

@Chase Rogers


Howard is probably looking at 4 years 16 million with 5 million guaranteed.
