You know the rules. You’ve made an easy decision and a tough one. You’re ready to take the reigns as General Manager once more! This team is yours! Choose your weapons! Time to kick off the Roster Rodeo Wide Receivers edition!
Austin has floated around the NFL since 2010 but hasn’t seen any significant NFL action. His last regular season appearance was back in 2011 for Washington. A slot receiver only, Austin has shown good chemistry with Shaun Hill against the 2s. He has 6 catches on 8 targets for 48 yards this preseason.
Broyles has never been a fan favorite after being drafted in the 2nd round of the 2012 draft. After an extended healing period from an ACL tear, Broyles flashed big time slot ability against a strong Texans defense on national TV before tearing his other ACL soon after. Strong all of camp, his knee flared up prior to the Jets game and he has seen very limited action in both preseason games.
Burleson has been the best team leader the team has seen on offense in years. Still, that hasn’t translated into onfield production due to a broken leg in 2012 and a poor showing in the preseason so far.
Durham had a hard time digesting the offense in 2012 over a 4 game span, but made some circus catches. Camp has seen even more of those circus catches, but the preseason has seen him targeted only twice for a single catch that he made the most of with some long YAC.
A Training Camp superstar in 2012, Edwards was uncoverable in camp 2013. During the preseason, he has been targeted five times with three short, very difficult catches where he got hit hard by a defender. His speed was on display even when he wasn’t targeted, but he has yet to prove his worth on a football field.
Fuller had a very inconsistent Training Camp, but his athleticism was unmistakable. Sadly, so were his poor hands and technique, and Fuller has barely earned any time on the field, usually the last receiver in. A late round draft pick, can he put it all together in time?
