    I don't think the plan was to go into the season with David Reed ont he roster, or to have no PROVEN returners. Liek you say, there are some option, but I think those are best considered backup options, unless they surpass someone(Jones) in camp.

    Sorry, but this really isn't a case of picking one over the other. They signed Jones to fill a need, at a time when it was unknown that Murphy would become available later, so it's not like they had their choice of which one to sign.

    Had they passed on Jones and Murphy never become available or were outbid for him, what then?



    Exactly. Jones is here as much for his KR abilities as anything else. If he fills the 3rd WR spot too, great. If not, he's still a valuable acquisition as a KR.

    Maybe. Or maybe more with several totally unproven, young WRs trying to man the 3rd WR spot.

    Again, let's just wait and see what happens before predicting what is going to happen......
