Actually he's missing the point slightly . . . you risk them being picked up on waivers. We cut Easton any team that had interest in him before the draft could pick him up on waivers. A lot of teams had interest in him. This is a 4th round pick not a 7th.
Kelly could potentially clear waivers. Easton is almost certain to be picked up on waivers.
After playing very little role in 2017, Hunt was solid for us in 2018, solid enough to be given a contract extension ... for whatever reason his play really diminished last year.
He's also 6'8" 295 and plays a totally different style of football than Stallworth at 6'2" 305... I'm not really anticipating much from Stallworth given his previous NFL production, so I don't know if we got the better end of the deal 'by far' and I won't be shocked if Hunt plays well for NO.... we do have a younger guy who has potential, though. Hopefully he works out.
