4-6. battle between Jenkins, Battle, Ginn, and KW. (obviously, Jenkins and likely Ginn would be "safe" from being released)
Last year after losing Morgan vs the Bucs, Battle would have been our # 2.
I agree. Too bad his arthritic knee became such a problem. The guy was a warrior but just could not stay healthy. I really don't think he would make the 53. Jenkins would be ahead just because of the money and Williams is quicker and faster. That would leave a competition between Battle and Ginn which Ginn would win because of returns.
Yes, you are right. While I'd love to have his experience and hands, we simply couldn't justify a roster spot for him over the young potential WRs and return ability of Ginn we now have. If horrible things occurred in TC/preseason (knock on wood, please no!), then I would want us to consider him for depth unless he comes in and looks washed up.
... but as of last year with Morgan injured? Battle would have been a great asset to us.
