I don’t think the Rams have the money to pay MJ and he’d most-likely be like the 5th best WR on the team…so if he wants to win a Superbowl on the coat-tails of everyone else on his team, then great…but I don’t see the Rams doing much in the post-season anyways. He’d be better-off taking the league minimum to join the Bucs.
The 5th best WR claim is a head scratcher. I’d personally rather have Jones than Kupp or Woods. That might be debatable, but I’m not sure who the other two guys are who could hypothetically be better receivers. I think Jones would be their best WR, and definitely not worse than their 3rd option. And even if you prefer Kupp and Woods, Jones would still fill a niche that the others don’t in being a deep threat.
I’d take Kupp or Woods over MJ all day long. Those guys get open in short-distances, MJ doesn’t.
MJ sucked last year when we had Golladay on the field with him, MJ dissappeared. I posted this before, through the first 8 games last year: MJ had 25 receptions, 308 yards, 4 TD’s (which wasn’t bad).
Again, MJ was a very good signing and I have always really liked him as a player and a person off the field and more power to him if he wants to go chase a ring. I think he would make a good depth guy behind Kupp, Woods, and Van.
MJ would make a very nice depth guy if Woods, Kupp, or Jefferson go down with an injury. Like @Air2theThrown he’d probably make a good deep ball guy for them as well. I just don’t think he’d see the field as much in L.A…and that might be a good thing for MJ as he hits 31 years old soon, not old for all WR’s but for some they have slowed.
But as an example … I liked Andre Robert’s impact as a Lion even if others didn’t. What I mean is Robert’s made an impact to help Lions win that season
And he’s gone on to continue his career and contribute.
It’s ultimate team game
Even Tate helped Philly win a playoff game with his TD.
As a Lion fan , I’d take a playoff win.
The third rounder for Tate hasn’t been the difference in success for Lions especially with BQ MP at helm.
IMO his comment translate to highest bidder! With non-guaranteed contracts no NFL players is going to leave money on the table for a shot at a title unless that player has made an enormous amount of money. If the Lions offered Jones big money he would be here; unfortunately, they won’t. However, that doesn’t stop a lower tier team from overplaying. If Cincy, for example offered big money then he would sign there.
Since new broke that Stafford had asked for a trade I wanted Jones to end up wherever Stafford did. They’re close and so are their families. And both want and deserve to win. And both IMO are will too take contracts that help the team.
