Lelie is one of the top deep receiving threats in the NFL? I guess there's a second NFL around I don't know about, because the only Ashely Lelie I've heard of is a first round bust who scares no one

Lelie has been held down by quarterbacks who couldn't get him the ball. Look at the teams-Oakland, San Francisco, Atlanta (pre-Ryan). In SF, seeing nobody could throw a pass longer than 20 yards, he started running shorter routes and going over the middle, making himself available. This guy needs a chance with a quality team. Santana Moss was getting the same rep with the Jets (problem-weak armed Pennigton) and is now a respected fixture with the Redskins. Don't know if he'll make it with Pittsburgh, but any team with a quality QB could use him. There had to be something going on in the locker room in Denver, because he produced when the ball was thrown his way-he seemed to be Cutler's last option.

He'd be an interesting prospect. Does what needs to be done to get the ball and doesn't complain about it. He'd be the ideal 3rd receiver and should open things up for Santonio on the outside. If he signs that is. Nothing like seeing a receiver whose not afraid to roll his dress up and get dirty.
