I agree, this move was pretty unexpected especially after all Smith's assurances he was over the play-off loss and would be back for '06.

Agreed. This is an unusally selfish act by a normally classy guy. It seemed he still had some go in the tank, so I didn't see this one coming. I wonder if the draft had some bearing on his choice? Could be he didn't think they improved enough for them to have a chance, and just couldn't see the point in pushing an older body one more year and risking injury for nothing. Regardless, I do think we will see much more of Matt Jones this year. Wilford may be the bigger recipient of the dividends, but Jones seemed to be catching on a bit last year, and should only improve this year.

well, for the guy looking for confirmation that this is indeed true, it has made its way to NFL.com and ESPN.com so I would say it is more than a rumor.

Ernest Wilford - top 25 WR now? Is 1,200 and 9 totally out of reach for him now?

You never know, he could have informed the front office before the draft. I don't think it would have chaned their draft strategy much, because they already have 3 pretty good WR's.

I don't know.

I like Wilford, but I like Jones even more.

I think Jones, even though he'll be the number two, will play himself into the number one spot.

I agree with this right here. I would take Jones in a dynasty all day long over Wilford. Wilford in a redraft may have a bit more value this year but in coming years it will be Matt Jones.

Wow this is surprising. Good for him to make up his mind though. I thought for sure he would be around for at least another year or two. Good thing I don't have him in any of my leagues.

Yup, that's what I thought of first too. Hope not, but it is a possibility.

I wonder how this is going to affect Lefty? He was a marginal fantasy QB anyway, now he loses his go to guy.
Does Jax try and see if they can trade Taylor for a WR? Lelie and a pick maybe? hmmm.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
