    I called it! It was the only reason I could think of for Telesco waiting tell the 7th round to draft a WR. It only made sense that Telesco was really confident in Floyd's return.

    And whether or not hes lost a step since his injury. He's probably not in nearly as good of shape as he was right before he was hurt. Will he come back and be just as good, and if he not will he loose his spot to someone else in camp? I guess we'll start to get an idea in training camp.

    This is my main concern. His injury would of happened to anyone who got hit like that. So I'm not as concerned about him re-injuring himself.

    It's always a tough call when your best receivers get banged up. I like this whole committee/platoon thing, just throw in different sets of receivers...

    If they want him last a full season, they need to adjust how much playing time he gets. Expecting him to last the whole season as the full-time #2 is probably a bad idea. Maybe Brown will improve enough to take the heavy workload and keep Floyd for important 3rd downs, goaline and special situations. That is ideal way to use the guy in my opinion.

    I think more important than reducing the number of snaps is reducing the number of hits. That can be achieved by having him run fewer routes across the middle of the field, like the one that got him injured last year.

    Pretty much the same thing. To completely remove certain routes from his arsenal is going to limit his playing time.

    I doubt he lost a step cuz he wasn't fast to begin with, that's a non issue. And there's no reason to get too hyped up as he wasn't that productive before, being hurt as much as he was healthy. He's a situational receiver and red zone threat best case scenario. He was never a #1 or even reliable #2 WR. I like him and hope him wellness and productivity but the expectation needs to be tempered to reality.

    He'd hardly be the only receiver in the league who wouldn't always go over the middle.
