It's kind of funny, but I have...I watched him play quite a bit in college, he was a stud at Oregon and I remember really wanting the Browns to draft him and being PISSED that the Ravens got him.

That said I'm not sure what I can expect at this point, I mean that would be one hell of a late bloomer, not sure I can even come up with a comparable example for someone who became successful after that much time, off the top of my head.

Anyways, he has talent, no question.

SD:

Well now that makes sense , he's really a seasoned vet journeyman and not a udfa from nowhere.

Takes a couple years for wideouts to find their sea legs normally , add an injury here or there , a blown chance at the most inopportune time or the team having a Mason in front of you and walla your humping catches with a bunch of other would be hopefuls on a division rival trying to make a team .

I like it .

SD:

Some follow up stats seem to indicate this kid is primed on the edge to have a break out .

Steady improvement from doing absolutely zilch his rookie year .

I too will cross my fingers on your sentiments about all our receivers.

Hate to break this one to you but you've got it reversed. Still rooting for him though.

SD:

Good catch , mea culpa ,

ewwweee are those numbers ugly , gonna need some injury history or sumthin to add some context ,
did they IR him or something after signing Boldin ..

In any event whatever demons he had there , lets hope he's exorcised them.
