To be honest, does anybody think, that any other team would pick this guy up after what he did in the NFC Championship?
Oh yeah, absolutely. They'd let him compete for a WR spot in camp, no doubt. Dude has lots of talent to develop into a solid slot WR.
Let's not forget that, up until last game, nearly everybody who considers themselves a Niner fan wanted this kid as a WR.
Look at his entire body of work, as a scout would. That is more than enough to give him a shot in camp.
I'd said SEVERAL time in my weekly wrap-up that the kid needed a shot and called for him to start over Braylon long before Braylon was cut.
He has serious potential as a lightning quick slot receiver type. Nobody is saying that he's Jerry Rice.
Cutting a guy because you are angry serves only to lower the talent level of the team. That's what LOSING teams do. Ya know what WINNING teams do? They hang on to these guys and sign the ones other teams cut.
Ask the Browns and Redskins about Earnest Byner. Byner fumbled and lost the AFC Championship game for Cleveland. The Browns traded him to the 'skins for Mike Oliphant. Byner became a force to be reckoned with in Washington and won a Super Bowl. Cleveland got nothing from Oliphant and never made the title game.
Short-sighted people suffer the consequences.
