Very good point. He's not in his prime any more.
So far this year he's got 13 receptions for 160 yards and 2 touchdowns. Considering the bye week, that's 53 yards per game.
I also have faith that Manny Lawson will shut him down... again. And we have plenty of quality LB's on our team that can also chip him.
5 catches for 73 yards and a TD in week one. 7 catches for 71 and a TD in week two. Then only 1 catch against the Pats, while they were running coverage focused on him to specifically shut him out. So apparently the Pats still think he's the most dangerous weapon on that team.
