That's my guess; Amani has impressed in TC....and has, a bit, of history to rely on. ;)

It's history, alright. He hasn't had a 1,000 yard season in 6 years.

Seems to me that neither he or Engram played tonight.

I'm not saying they aren't going to sign anybody, but I think the promotions of Darling and Copper have more to do with giving them a look in order to judge if they would be good backups to Bowe and Toomer, rather than a motivational ploy. \ I don't believe for a minute that Bowe gets benched come week 1.

Engram played. Lelie working out was part of the message to Bowe... i.e there are guys looking for work. no way Lele gets signed.

I'm sure we will see Engram and Toomer next game...hopefully less of Copper and Darling...looked like some of those rookies could keep up with either of them given the chance.

When did Toomer get here? Has he had time to learn the offense?

Right now, just based on what I know about these guys without seeing pratices, I'd say the Bowe and Bardley will be the top 2 receivers, with Engram in the slot and Toomer as the 4th, who will get a lot of snaps in 3rd down situations.

Darling, Copper and Wright are competing for the 5th spot, while Quentin Lawrence probably lands on the practice squad.

Is Taurus Johnson still on the team?

From my perspective, I really hope Bradley has the goods. We'll be better off with SOME speed out there.

I'm not sure what makes you so confident there won't be additional signings.
This offense wasn't functional at all with Darling/Copper.
Bowe and Bradley look to be the only respectable targets Cassel has.

I pray that they cut Jeff Webb. Why has he been here so long?

I'm fairly certain that your prayers will be answered soon, thank Todd.

Haley was seeing if the young guys can step up against a #1 defense. He has years of film on Toomer and Engram. He knows they can run accurate routes and get open and catch the ball. The other guys, not so much.

Tooms hasn't had enough time to learn the offense -- I'm not sure how long it takes - that's up to him.

Just my opinion

JERRY: Hey, Toomer!

GEORGE: No. No Toomer.

JERRY: No Toomer?

KRAMER (from bathroom): Hey, is that Toomer?!

JERRY: No! There's no Toomer!

KRAMER: Well, why no Toomer?!

JERRY: Why no Toomer?

GEORGE: 'Cause Neil Watkins from accounting is Toomer!

That's how I see it. I think he'll be on the field in the 2nd pre-season game, since he'll have a few more days to study the playbook.

ya, that TD he dropped is mind boggling as to why he is still on the team.

Outside of Bowe and Bradley all of these WR's leave a lot to be desired, not to mention we don't even have a return man..

Supposedly the Bills want to move Roscoe Parrish, wonder if the Chiefs will be interested.

That would be something to look into if true.

I hope you mean as a return man? He really has never done anything as a reciever.

He could probably play the slot on this team....but either way he's a pretty good returner.

No toomer? The answer is simple. Copper, darling!
