Despite all the hype that has gone into Cole Magner, IMO, he hasn't shown me anything that would indicate he's a better receiver than Jimmy Farris. Farris couldn't be confused with a #3 guy, but when he played, he produced IMO.
If you take into account, his numbers from 2003 regular season, 2004 preseason, and this past preseason, they indicate he has a knack for finding the endzone. Combined those numbers are:
I know you can't rely on those numbers to accurately show how good Farris is, but those are pretty damn good numbers, when you factor in thats it equates to probably like half a dozen games of actual playing time.
I'm not exactly sure why the Falcons got rid of Farris. We cut him right after the draft, and my assumption was because the team wanted to make sure Roddy White had a roster spot. Because as long as Farris is in camp with this team, I see him making the roster every year (same goes for Finneran), since he's so valuable a role player.
So as far as I'm concerned, I'm hoping Farris is cut and the Falcons are able to get him (although it's probably doubtful because we have low waiver priority).
