Oooohh boy.

I assume its a 1-year deal for or near the vet minimum. If so, good signing.

Pretty meh signing to me. Really don't think he's going to help out their receiving core that much.

What's wrong with him ? Besides from injury.

I was hoping he would go to the Lions. Get two of Kim K's exes on one team.

Injuries have more or less ruined his explosiveness, which was what made him good in the first place. Having said that, so long as he's healthy, he should improve the Browns receiving corp.

Hamstring injuries every season.

Miles is a very solid WR but his hamstrings are more fragile than your grandmothers fine china. He'll be injured before week 6 and you'll be lucky to have him get 400yds and a couple TDs.

Can any Cowboys fan tell me if he has anything left in the tank? Even when healthy? 2012 wasn't a complete waste of a season for him.

His 2013 is probably a strong reflection of where he's currently at. His 2012 was hindered but less impeded by injuries with him playing in all 16 games

I'm fine with that if Gordon gets his suspension cut in half

Probably has a better chance of helping them this year than any of the WRs people kept saying they HAD TO DRAFT with every pick in the mid rounds.

I disagree - he's pretty much a slot only WR at this point

I don't know if any 3rd or 4th round rookie receiver would be any more than that this year either. I'm happier with next years first from Buf than I think I would have been with Sammy Watkins as well.

Moncreif, Bryant and Huff would be better than Austin, but just speculation
