  1. Wilson and Gallup are both FAs next year, Likely they keep Cooper thru next year and try to develop or draft another WR to compliment Lamb, who could be WR1 soon depending on the health of Cooper and whether we keep him around with his 20+ million dollar contract.

  2. I believe Cedric Wilson can come in and take over as the 3rd receiver just fine until Gallup comes back!! That’s not too much of a problem!! Our issue is at corner…. We need to get somebody to take over for Anthony Brown!! That’s a player we definitely need to replace!!

Anthony Brown, Bucs
