    Brate showed some of best hands on the team last season. Heres hoping for a big season for the kid

    Totally correct B. He had a great percentage of receptions per target. He may be in for a big year.

    You don’t have to be fast to run the underneath routes if you can hold position and have good hands. Brate, along with Humphries, should take care of “slot’ receiver needs and allow the team to look for either a speedster or Jackson’s eventual replacement.

    Its nice knowing that the stability of the position isn’t completely on the shoulders of ASJ. Hopefully Austin will be motivated by the competition and can finally stay healthy.

    Good to hear that information. It’s all about staying healthy; I hope SJ got his body right off season.
