His reputation is fine with the people it actually matters.
    Does Ben throw to hard or did he break them in college also?

    It's just something that happened here. Don't know if it was how he caught a couple balls or landed on the ground or whatever. I just know he missed a 4 games with a fractured right pinky that needed stitches (not sure if the bone broke the skin or he needed surgery to fix it), and then he injured his right middle finger later in the year. His first injury caused him to slide to 4th on the depth chart and he never got the 3rd spot back mostly due to Cotchery balling out and getting injured again. He did have surgery in the offseason to fix any issues.

    I expect him to have a solid year. I expect he and Brown to start with Lance Moore playing the slot and Bryant coming in situationally.

    Martavius Bryant WR - 4th round

    I would also point out that the coaching staff was raving about Wheaton last season. Ryan Clark said he was already better than Mike Wallace in training camp.

    I remember hearing about that. I'm excited to see what he can do this year. A full offseason of work should do wonders for him since he missed a lot of time due to school and all that last year.

    Did Wheaton get hurt after we decided not to trade sanders?

    I thought he'd have a bigger role this upcoming season. I personally would rather watch the young players develop
