Bb has some tough decisions to make this offseason, about who to resign, let walk, restructure...I don't think the rookie wr's are going anywhere. Dobson looked good, thompkins good for what he will be (#3-4), and Boyce showed some potential With his athleticism and Edelman like open field ability. bb can't cut amendola given his contract and the only receiver he has to resign is Edelman who I think should be done, but bb may have another plan Given the amount of money required to do so.
when I think of our WR corps, the only guy that stands out to me who potentially has #1 WR written on him is Dobson. I know folks will say what about edelmans incredible year? Yes, he had his best ever...however, 75% of WR production going through Edelman is not the solution. Edelman to me is a complimentary piece. He should be a 3rd option with Dobson and Gronk on the field....of course depending on situation.
pThe question for me are
can dobson be a #1?
can Gronk give us anything next year?
given we gave Danny a good contract, can we afford Edelman too? Their skill set is similar, can we afford to have both? Do we need both?
can Boyce be a dangerous slot receiver with PR ability too? ...might answer the question on Edelman...
at the least, I think we need another pass catching threat at TE. Best case, Gronk and this player play together. If Gronk can't go or gets hurt again, we have insurance.
