Re: I hope not!
From a football standpoint, I'm not sure it's a good move either. This would give them 2 X receivers. Plax is NOT a third down guy. He's faster than he is quick. He, contrary to the article, does not do a good job on jump balls. Though he had A good year here, generally most of his yardage would come in 4-5 games. On the plus side, he's an absolute Raven killer. But so is the FBI. How would you handle it? Demote Wallace to 3rd receiver again? Take Heath Miller off the field more often? Not with this offensive line, you won't. Cutting Randle El may happen anyway because of the emergence of Sanders and Brown, but I would not cut him for Plaxiglass. I like ARE, and his versatility, but his usefullness on the trick plays is moot because Arians has trouble enough drawing up standard plays, especially effective running plays, let alone trick plays, and those nearly always require a little more time from the blocking, which is asking a lot. If they sign Plax, they will have to cut Kemo the Hut, and fire Arians to balance out the SF58 happyometer.
We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
