I think lelie is agreat addition,fast and has good size. Another big target such as tight end Daniel Fells,might make Vick the great passer we want to see.

i believe this is a good move for the falcons. everybody knows that the falcons is one of the best teams in the league as far as rushing. now with lelie being a deep threat, this should provide the offense with some more breathing room for there running game as well as drawing the safety off of jenkins and white.

Yes Lelie is a deep threat and yeah he does have decent size, but he also has shakey hands at best he shys away from any hit and can't beat out a cripple or an old man(Javon Walker and Rod Smith). He wants to be a number one receiver and he isn't talented enough to do it, he isn't a top receiver all he does is run deep try to catch the ball (emphisize TRY) and fall to the ground. When he finds out he is behind White and maybe even Jenkins he might hold out again. Yeah Falcons can have fun with him I'm happy he isn't around the Broncos anymore good riddence.
