This is the kind of move McCloughan would never have pulled off. Great work Baalke!
I feel the exact same way! How AWESOME would he be in the spread offense? We have a legitmate deep threat with blazing speed and watching his highlight reel, he is amazing on returns hitting between the first two blockers w/o ANY hesitation every time.
The other thing that stands out to me (besides his deciveness) is that he has a knack for making plays, great change of pace, breaks tackles, doesn't go down easy at all, RAC, etc.
He may like contact like a Deion Sanders but if he can add to the return game like he should AND be a deep threat in our spread formations, this should be a fantastic pickup!
Warm your arm up Alex...you'll be throwing some deep passes this year!
Great p/u IMO esp. for a 5th rounder.
