Curtis could have been a good signing, but Stallworth? He hasn't started all 16 games in his career. I don't know why the Falcons or any team would take a risk on him and sign him and guarantee him tons of money.

I know this might be a lot of time he missed, but in his last 3 seasons Horn played in 39 out of 48 games and he started 38 of this 39 games in his last 3 seasons. I think this signing also proves whether or not its Vick who is garbage or the ATL WR's who are garbage.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

One WR is going to determine if Vick is trash or not? Really? And that WR is 35 as well?

Horn is at least a proven talent when healthy. If Vick can't do anything with him it would just prove that it wasn't entirely his WRs fault for him not being a very good QB.

Sorry, but this is a pretty bogus perspective. Horn languished away with the Saints as the best player on a bad team for YEARS. Then, as soon as the Saints actually have a decent team, they show no loyalty to Horn and cut him in favor of cheaper options. The NFL is a business, but if there's reason to be mad at anyone, it's the Saints, not Joe Horn. Joe Horn did more for the Saints than the Saints ever did for Joe Horn.

Horn was brought in over other wide outs I'm assuming to give the young corps in ATL some help as a veteran and help develop the young guys while he's there.

COMPLETELY AGREE ;-D ;-D ;-D The Saints just didn't want to pay Joe what he deserved and they showed him no love for all he has done for that team AND the community

Yea....does anyone honestly think that bringing in someone who causes as many problems as Stallworth would have helped anything at all? Horn was a good signing to give them what they needed I think. A solid WR who still has some left in the tank in my opinion and someone who can bring some leadership to that receiving corps.

What problems does Stallworth cause? He was nothing but a class act this year with the Eagles, and while his hammies are way too sensitive and sideline him often, he is an impact player when he's in the game.

Horn has plenty left in the tank. He had a 3 game stretch last year where he had a combined 329 yds. and 4 TDs. Staying healthy is a major concern, but if he can, he has plenty left. As long as they didn't break the bank for him, it should be a very good signing. He can be their #1 WR for a year or two, while mentoring the younger WRs.

another reason i don't see the love of kevin curtis. sure the guy has shown flashes in the past but that isn't exactly hard to do when you play as a third and sometimes second receiver that has a probowl wideout in holt , a former pro bowl wideout in bruce, a probowl QB in bulger and a pro bowl back in steven jackson all on the field with you. there is no telling what the guy is going to do on his own and i'm not sure ATL would have been a good fit for him.

just as much risk involved in horn as there would be curtis or stallworth far as i can see.
