As a courtesy to the other board members, please use more descriptive topic titles. A single name if far too vague to post as a title and provides little insight into what specifically the post is talking about.The topic starter can edit the topic title line to make it more appropriate.

 

Thank you.

If Zay continues to drop passes Foster could be moving up the depth chart ! Jones may be a decent WR but there has been something (and i can't put my finger on it) that i haven't liked about him 🤔.

 

There are others that i think could be a better fit for the Bills Stills, Foster, & Cam may be a better fit ...

He strikes me as a developmental player that should see time only when our starters need oxygen.

We have a QB that loves the deep ball and the only two receivers on our roster that are consistently capable of running those routes are Brown and Foster. If anything, Beasely, McCloud and Mekenzie are redundant. Not sure we have room for three receivers that bring the same thing to the table.

 

They may need that depth, I think Allen will be forcing the checkdowns this year, better have a stable of slot receivers.

Zay dropped 1 ball in the game Thursday. 

 

If he dropped all 5 then I can see the cut him angle.  

 

Between the 2 Foster is the odd man out IMO.

I don’t personally get the hype. Foster has some big plays last season, but it felt more like it was more about joshes big arm and Foster  just happening to run fast, then him bring a good polished WR. 

 

anyhow, McDermott hinted in a press conference he saw Foster going through a struggle some ‘young players’ have after having SOME success in their rookie campaign. It sounded like coach speak for he’s not putting in the classroom work. Might explain the mistakes

So only past performance matters. got it. How is it "nonsense" to (correctly) point out that he is struggling again, and in the face of the new signings of Brown and Beasley and with RayRay and McKenzie obviously playing at a higher level than last year, if you believe the reports from camp, how can you dismiss people questioning his future? Sorry but it sounds like you're reading some reality and you don't like it so you're just dismissing it.

It's not impossible he gets cut, just improbable. It's also questionable to place any real emphasis on a pre-season depth chart, and TC performance. Previous in-season game-time performance very much carries weight in the discussion. Not to mention you have to look at the WR roles more than you do a standard depth chart that doesn't reflect the roles employed by the offensive system. Ray Ray and McKenzie might be having a better camp than Foster, but Foster isn't a slot WR. Nor are Ray Ray and McKenzie a WR2 in this offense. Right now Foster's biggest "competition" is with Zay and Brown, less so of the latter.

 

With the slot role just about on lock with Beasley on the roster, I'd say it's either Ray Ray or McKenzie playing for that 6th spot (if we even keep 6). Daboll has shown thus far he's really only needed one utility guy. And based on last season, McKenzie was used much more in this capacity, and to greater effect than Ray Ray. Given that gametime evidence, Ray Ray is the one that has more to prove to take over that role that McKenzie already won at the end of last season. Especially considering Ray Ray was with them all the way through camp last year, too, and McKenzie was added mid-season. That said, coaches may meet and say they value the utility role that opens up the sweep packages and motion plays versus a "redundant" WR2, in which case you'd likely see either Zay or Foster leave. But that's not something the depth chart, or our armchair analysis of TC will provide.

 

Again it's not impossible that he ends up a cut, but it is fairly nonsensical to provide that judgment based solely on this year's TC and preseason so far, and not take into account the myriad other variables that actually play a part of the ultimate roster decision.
