It's been over six months since Drexel examined the receiving group before free agency, and not much has changed. That's actually very good news, as we learned yesterday Kenny Britt wouldn't be facing any discipline from the league. Health permitting, he'll starting every game and presumably lead the team in targets, receptions, yards, and touchdowns. Unfortunately, health has been a problem for him again this year as his hamstring has kept him out of the three preseason games thus far. Mike Munchak said at a press conference today he'll play Thursday against the Saints, but he may still be limited against the Jaguars in two weeks.
Nate Washington will be the starter opposite Britt. He had a nice game against the Bears after a quiet first two games. Chances he develops into a lead wideout are slim, but if Britt's in he should be a solid veteran number two wideout.
