2019 Cornerback Coffee Talk, no big whoop...

That's certainly possible about the CB...not so sure about the WR though...I think they'll roll with whoever makes the team at that position.  There probably isn't going to be a WR that's going to be any better than what they already have.  

WR is the one position where I'd want to add an experienced veteran as a backup. I wouldn't expect it to be difficult to find a veteran WR better than Treadwell, and WR is a position where there are a lot of numbers across the league. There's bound to be a few decent ones that could fill in a 3rd or 4th WR and offer more than Treadwell can in 2019.

Treadwell's not making the team regardless, so I'm not looking for anyone to upgrade from him.  As it stands today, I'm expecting the depth chart to be Diggs, Thielen, Beebe, Taylor, and Johnson.  

Considering they are likely to run a lot more 2-TE sets than they have in the past, there isn't really a tremendous need to have an additional veteran backup outside of Taylor.

You're looking at a very limited skill set of backup receivers with that grouping. Unless one of the rookie WRs surprise, I don't really see anyone that has the ability to get behind a defense and can somewhat stetch the field. At least Robinson had a role, albeit limited, that produced. I wouldn't even be opposed to bringing him back honestly, but I'm fine giving Johnson and Mitchell a chance first, but if they don't impress, I think Spielman will need to check the waiver wire.

I personally don't really care about whether a guy can stretch the field, nor do I see the real need for it.  But, if you want that guy, then replace Taylor or Johnson (or a TE) with Badet, problem solved.  If a guy has 4.3 speed and hits the waiver wire after final cuts, he's no better than the guys they already have on roster.

I've always had a tendency to veer off on occasion.  I even did it when I was a mod...then I would catch myself.  xD

He for sure made nice progression last year in terms of making plays and being active out there.  Good to hear that is continuing especially with Hughes and Hill out early on.  Wish the same could be said for Kearse at safety.  

There's an article out on the Athletic right now about Mackensie and the strides he's made.  Here's an excerpt that tells you everything you need to know...

Quote

Mackensie Alexander, the Vikings’ fourth-year nickelback, went through the finer points of playing the position with Craig James, the young pupil Alexander singled out on this day. They worked on their stances and Alexander mimicked a wide receiver to illustrate points to James.

And they might have to use that money on a potential tackle that could be cut.

The #Chiefs are giving CB Mo Claiborne a 1-year deal worth up to $1.5M, source said. He’ll be suspended the first four games of the season, which KC has known since they began negotiating with him.
