Moulds refuses to restructure

I think like most players that are getting on in age, Moulds wants to have a chance to compete for a championship, and it is very hard to see that happening in Buffalo in the next 2-3 years, which is about how much longer I expect him to keep playing. If released, he will end up signing for less than $10 mil, just so he can compete before he retires.

I would think that the Eagles, Chargers, and Minnesota would be interested in signing him and have the cap room to approach him.

No matter where he goes, he'll be a golden steal...this is an even year. ;-)

So what does this do for Evans? I'm afraid we're once again sucked into the endless cycle of 2 FF WRs becoming 1.....is he going to be better now as the #1, or fall a bit as defenses are able to stick their best corner on him? The endless debate gets a new target here.

What I am thinking (take with a grain of salt) is that the Eagles should make a run at him. Yea, they publicly (through the burger king himself eskin--so it is probably counter ops), said not interested.

But, a solid replacement from Owens is what they need. I thinka corps of moulds, brown and pinkston to stretch the field with westbrook soemtimes taking the slot, and they have a nice passing game. By the time moulds is done, brown should be developed.

It seems to me that teams who really need a number one will roll the dice with owens perhaps. Other teams need more of a givens, randel el type. Maybe the eagles can get him while the other stuff sorts out.

I always though moulds fantasy wise was underrated. Especially so in my preferred format of 3wr, 2rb. Having that third Wr is important in that type of format, IMO.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

I think that Evans' numbers at the end of the year will be good (probably similar to Moulds' numbers this year, perhaps better), but he will be very inconsistent from game to game. I don't plan on drafting him because I don't trust Losman and I think it will be too hard to predict his good weeks to plug him into the lineup.

Moulds is past his prime.

Lee Evans is hitting his prime.

Moulds has little value.

Lee Evans has much value.

4 simple facts to sum it all up.

Look at this past year:

Moulds - 81 rec, 816 yards, 4 TD's
Evans - 48 rec, 743 yards, 7 TD's

I agree that Moulds is past his prime but who isn't at 33.

Moulds put up numbers just as good as Evans and Moulds was seeing the tougher coverage each week

The point is he will put up 1000+ yards and 6-8 TD's in a decent offense.

He will be a great pickup for whoever gets him.

I wish the Steelers would go for him but I doubt it.

If the Eagles get him that would really set them up nicely going into next season.

I just don't think Evans will be able to handle the #1 CB each week. If Evans is the #1 I would expect the same numbers as he had this past year.

Moulds will easily outperform Evans this year imo.

carolina could sure use moulds as a wr #2, not to mention drafting a tight end

Na, they should stay away. There's plenty of talent out there where they don't have to overpay for an aging WR.

Moulds is probably asking for more than he's worth, but on a team with a good QB, and as a #2 receiver, he probably still has a couple of quality years left in him.
