I would hope that we find at least one 1,000 receiver on our roster this year. Keeping in mind that I haven’t seen any of the training camp this year, I would venture that Miles will lead the team in reception yards.
Catches? Harder to say, but I hope that we see a slotback emerge as a go-to-guy for Casey a la Flutie and Moreale for Danny Mac. I expect that Chris Bauman will make a marked improvement this year. He has the physical tools to be an excellent possession receiver in this league.
Obviously there may be further developments if one or more of the newcomers (Ponder, Jackson, Rodriguez, etc.) stick and get into a groove. The possibility of Giguere coming back later this summer is a wildcard that wouls affect any predictions in that regard. One thing IS for sure: Lumsden and Caulley should be factors coming out of the backfield as receivers. Stretching defences with the 5-pack will provide opportunities underneath for our tailbacks. We shall see how it all develops!
