And he has hands of stone. Speed doesn't mean thing if you can't catch the ball.

Anyone hear any news on his visit? Is he going to sign? I like his height and speed. He could be a steal and could give us a HUGE WR core. Just a thought.

I don't know much about him other than he hasn't hurt the Chiefs any. I think he'd still be a good player to look into. His size and speed warrant a look by themselves. Sure, he may be lacking in the hands department, but how much worse could he be right now than Parker or ___, our 4th and 5th WRs? I think he'd upgrade our corps immediately, and, if he ever lives up to potential, could be a great pickup in the long run.

Joe Horn dropped quite a few balls last year (as did Alexander). He's having a great year in N.O. If drops are his biggest problem I'll welcome him in KC for his measly $358,000 salary. If he develops, we picked up a huge bargain. If he doesn't, we're barely affected at all.

Even if he has hands of stone, it would give us a speed receiver to put opposite Morris and send streaking up the field. Bob Dole doesn't think any defense in the league would say, "Oh don't worry about covering him back there--he has hands of stone."
I think Parker has just about played his way off the team, so Ricks couldn't hurt. I also think Lockett is gone after this year, and we may have to replace him. All in all, can't see how it would hurt to give him a try.
