    I hope he signs somewhere for the vet minimum rather than retire.

    I think some contending team will bring him in towards the end of the season due to injuries.

    2nd greatest WR of all time. Unfortunate those 2 years with the Raiders were wasted. He could have come closer to a lot of Rice's records.

    I don't know if there is a player that accomplished so much, but left us still wondering what could have been.
