    This is good news. Jimmy Smith is a great WR, but this will allow the GOAT to move up the list one more notch in the all time receiving yds list. Now on to Marvin Harrisons retirement...

    He is 37 I don't know if you meant he looks healthy but 37 isn't really football age.

    He had a 1,000+ yard receiving season last year. The guy can still play regardless of age, which I think is what CanadianRam! was getting at.

    With a 1,000 yd receiving year hopefully coming, Isaac Bruce will be 6th all time in Receiving yds. Hall of Fame? I say yes. Thoughts?

    Ya I didn't know what he meant that is why I said "I don't know if you meant health." Look at Jerry Rice from 2002 to 2003 he went from 1211 yards and 7 TDs to 869 yards and 2 TDs.

    Ah, lest you forget...no more drug testing. Perhaps there was a drug testing issue that popped up again. He was in the league's substance abuse program and previously served a 4 game suspension.
