NFL.com's Pat Kirwan makes the argument that adding a viable third WR should give teams like the Texans, Cardinals, Bengals, Lions, and Raiders a real chance to turn things around this season. According to DVOA these teams ranked 14th, 15th, 17th, 20th, and 27th on defense, so that may have something to do with it too. Still, having a healthy Peter Warrick or 6'5" Mike Williams line up in the slot puts a little more pressure on the defense than the fullback trying to catch a pass coming out of the backfield.
