You will get more return on your investment spending that money on the defense than getting a WR
You don't need a prolific offense to win it all. Look at the Packers last season.
Either you just play madden or fantasy football.
Gronk and Hernandez will get a ton of targets. They're the two main targets. Lloyd can play as the third option. Makes no cap sense to pay big bucks for three receivers (Hernandez, Gronk and Jennings). Paying 8 mil+ for a third option is just stupid. Especially now that a run game is intact.
As 49Patriots mentioned, their are a lot of needs on the dline. Jones is our only pass rusher. Investing that money on a 2nd pass rusher is better money spent than on a third receiving option.
Interior Dline depth is also needed.
And I wouldn't invest another top pick in the secondary, but hopefully they can get a veteran DB somewhere in there.
Now when you consider the fact that you have those needs, AND you have players who will be FA's within the next two seasons (Spikes, Ridley to name a few) you can't possibly justify a Jennings signing.
This is a top ranked offense. If not signing welker or jennings means it drops to a number 7 offense, I'm fine with that.
8 million invested in the defense is better than 8 million invested on the offense at this point
