NFC East Q&A: Is the Giants' receiving corps best in the NFL

Today's question: Is the New Robinson Cano #22 Youth jersey York Giants' receiving corps of Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard the best in the league? Todd Archer, Dallas Cowboys reporter: I like what the Atlanta Falcons have with Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel. I like what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did in adding DeSean Jackson to Mike Evans. I like what the Pittsburgh Steelers have with Antonio Brown and a good group that will be better if Martavis Bryant returns to form. But from Nos. 1-3, it’s hard to quibble with the Giants. Beckham might be the most dynamic receiver in the league. Having joined a new team -- if not in a new stadium -- Marshall will be motivated to show what he has left. Shepard had a productive rookie season and should be better. We know the Giants will throw the ball a lot, and the trio will get plenty of looks from Eli Manning. Quick aside: I’m surprised Dwayne Harris hasn’t done more as a receiver with New York. I thought he would have been better after seeing him with the Cowboys earlier in his career. Tim McManus, Philadelphia Eagles reporter: I’m a fan of Atlanta’s corps of Jones, Sanu and Gabriel, and have respect for the receivers in Oakland, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay as well, but the Giants' receivers absolutely deserve to be in the conversation. It’s difficult to envision how the Eagles' secondary will handle this group. Jalen Mills on Beckham? Patrick Robinson on Marshall? Ron Brooks, coming off a ruptured quad tendon, trying to keep Kyle Fuller Womens Jersey up with Shepard in the slot? Could be trouble. More times than not, the Giants will enter a game holding a matchup advantage in that department, which is a beautiful thing to have going for you. Marshall is coming off a down year (788 yards, 3 TDs in 15 games). I’m curious to see whether at age 33, he can still reach lofty heights. That’s the X factor for me. If he can be the type of imposing presence we’ve become accustomed to, this just might be the best receiving corps in the NFL. John Keim, Washington Redskins reporter: If we’re talking about the entire receiving corps, then no. If we’re talking just the trio of Beckham, Marshall and Shepard, it would be hard to top this group, though entering the season I’d put Green Bay ahead of the Giants. Beckham is clearly a top receiver, and Marshall is one year removed from a 109-catch season (the sixth time he reached triple digits). He’ll provide a major boost in the red zone in particular. But he's 33. How much of last season's dropoff was due to personal attrition versus the Jets’ quarterback situation? We’ll soon find out, though I have a strong hunch it was the latter. Shepard caught 65 passes, eight for touchdowns, as a rookie. So this trio should be strong and, by season’s end, possibly the best. But if we’re looking at overall depth for the top spot -- and players beyond the top three -- there are questions, and that could be a problem. I’m curious to see more of Tavarres King because of his speed. salary in 2019 ($11.54 million) than he'll take home from a $22.5 million California salary in 2018 ($11.15 million). The $8.7 million total Carr will save in state taxes is no Melvin Ingram Authentic Jersey small chunk of change, but he could've maximized his haul by heavily backloading the deal. Instead, his contract's two highest annual payouts come in 2017 and 2018, the first two years of his deal. Why? Well, one important thing to remember is that the Raiders are the NFL's most cash-poor team as far as ownership goes. So Mark Davis might not have been willing to exchange minimal payouts on the front end for huge cash outlays in 2019 and beyond. Another wrinkle: A source familiar with the negotiations said the Raiders used the income tax savings to convince Carr that he's earning more while the team pays out less. In other words, the tax differences between California and Nevada brought down the total value of the deal, while enabling Carr to get more money up front than the team originally wanted to hand out. The deal also frees up cash for the Raiders to re-sign homegrown stars such as pass-rusher Khalil Mack and guard Gabe Jackson, who agreed to a five-year extension after Carr signed his deal. Add it all up, and Carr made out pretty well in this deal. No, his $40 million in the first nine months of the contract can't touch Andrew Luck's $60 million over the same span, but comparing Carr and Luck isn't exactly fair.
It's easy to get excited about rookies. We watch them dominate during their collegiate tenures. We watch, read and listen to analysis of their tape and combine workouts throughout the spring. And then it's all capped off during the excitement of draft weekend. Especially for the players who hear their names called on Day 1 of the draft, it's hard not to expect immediate fantasy contributions from the next wave of NFL stars. However, history shows that position matters. Rookie-season optimism is reasonable for some, but not for others. For the purpose of this article, I'll be looking at the rookie-season usage and performance of players selected in the first round during the 10 drafts spanning
