No thanks! His cap hit, history of concussions, and being a small receiver are all the reasons to pass on him. This team needs a 6'3 6'4 big body receiver who can go up and catch Rivers 50/50 balls. Thats why it made perfect sense to bring back Funchess.
Isn't good enough?
Well he was good enough for Ballard to sign a new contract that is worth over 16 million dollars.
Not all the players on the team can be all pro players. Nor can we afford to pay them like all pro players.
Glow is good enough no matter what you opinion is.
This went beyond possibly being a favor to Jim Kelly long ago. The Colts have no reason to be doing favors for Jim Kelly other than Reich, which might have made the Colts willing to put CK on the practice squad at the normal PS salary and letting him hang out there for a year (or until we needed the spot). Paying him the salary they did plus moving him onto the active roster shows that not only is he not here as a favor, but that they (both Reich and Ballard) also see some potential in him.
Eason was never a first round pick. Pre or post combine. Teams love him because of his strong arm but there is really nothing else about him to go crazy and reach for him over.
AJ Epenesa - Epenesa is falling to the second round. Had a weak combine, nothing special about him, and he looks like a 6 sack a year guy. Does teams really want to spend a mid first round pick on a 6 sack a year guy?
Josh Jones - A guy who has all the talent but just needs to put it together. Some scouts say, he's better suited as a guard. But get this guy to work on his technique and he can be a great LT.
Tee Higgins - Because he can't separate.
