Yup...heard some positive comments about him towards the end of last year too. Millard will be out the entire year, is what I'm hearing.
Yup, chances are Millard is red-shirted this year.
McDonald was brought in to play Walker's role, he just wasn't as productive, but he has the skills. Hoping we get him more involved, and actually design a handful of plays to get him the ball.
Carrier is a great athlete. He has some potential, so he might be an option down the line.
Remember we even took a shot on Chris Harper off waivers from Seattle. Tried to convert him to TE a la Walker. Didn't work out, we cut him after a few weeks.
So the team is actively looking for someone who can fill that Walker role and produce. Millard will be in the mix next season.
