Just read that DHB was released by the Raiders. Seems like he might be another suitable Mike Brown Former First-Round Draft Pick restoration project. He was finally seeming to get it together in 2011 when he had close to 1000 yards and was Jason Campbell's faorite target, then last year wasn't utilized much by Palmer, who seemed to prefer to throw to Moore (and Streeter as the year wore on).
DHB has the speed to stretch defenses but has been knocked for running poor routes and dropping too many balls due to concentration lapses (or hands of stone, depending on who you believe). I'm sure he could be signed for far less than Wallace or Harvin (probably would command in the neighborhood of $4-5 Mil/year).
So, what does the CJ community think of pairing DHB on the outside with AJ and rotating Sanu in the slot and outside?
Would you be in favor of the Bengals signing DHB?
