You say 39 and 593 like that's the end all.

You ignore how he impacts other plays and schemes.

You also forgot to mention his 8 TD's...second on the team...can a lesser receiver get 8 TD's and be virtually the only red zone threat...other than Gurley? You also failed to mention how productive 39 catches were relative to targets of 70. The numbers also said Watkins scored a TD every 5 passes he caught. You also forgot to mention that Goff was more adept underneath routes vs intermediate and long routes.

But...I understand that stat doesn't fit the narrative you have.

Sign Watkins, get a productive TE...Red Zone issues are solved. I thank you!beer2

Talk about twisting stats, je.

By your logic, Tavon’s 10 TD’s in ‘15 would justify a huge $44 million salary...

Oh wait...

But seriously? I’m skeptical about overpaying players based upon mostly intangibles. Call me old fashioned, but that can become an expensive cap crippling slippery slope.

Hopefully, Watkins will be reasonable about his contract demands. Otherwise, I favor turning S&M loose on the FA market for his replacement. Worked out pretty good with Woods.
