Alex Erickson Extended 2-year contract

Recommended Posts

Good for everyone involved.  He has some security, the team showed good faith by signing him before he reached RFA (which they didn't really have to do), and he seems to be liked by his teammates

Even if he's not starting or slot material, he's good enough to be on a 53 man roster. The problem was the Bengals and other teams have to look for guys who can sometimes offer more and being just a solid depth player isn't going to be enough at times. He deserves a spot when its all said and done.

This is bad news for Darius Phillips and Auden Tate though when you think about it. Erickson will be the 5th WR and ahead of Tate, and Phillips won't get any action anytime soon as long as Erickson is active on Sundays.

Did having Erickson on the roster limit Adam Jones getting some run on both ount and kick returns?  Tate will get blocked by Core more than Erickson.  Tate will get a basic redshirt year to develop.  Phillips will dress asd the fifth CB regardless, and still get return chances.

Unfortunately Tate is going to be one of the first cuts for positions of need once injuries start happening. Tate’s chances shrunk considerably once Core wasn’t put on IR

Yeah I agree with that. Never know how it will shake out, but he's not on real solid footing.
