WR 1: Will this be Chad's last season or last contract in Cincy? Mike Brown appears to be paving the way to drop a 33 or 34 year old Chad.
WR 2: TO's last chance to buy another last chance in the NFL. This is a 1 season rental. He needs to make enough highlight films this year to find any suitors for 2011 or 2012 (if there is a lockout).
WR3: Does Bryant spend time on the PuP in 2010? Bryant could be another bad signing from the league's smallest scouting department.
WR4/5: Caldwell verged on a breakout season in 2009 until his late season fade, will another season waiting in the wings hurt or help his development. Shipley could struggle to find playing time this season unless another WR flounders or goes down to injury.
WR 6/7: If Briscoe fails to make the team, how long will he remain on the developmental squad before being snatched away. Probably, not Long. Which means Cosby's talented contributions on special teams in 2009 might not be enough to guarantee his spot on the 2010 Bengals.
WR 8/9: Have Jones and Simpson accepted their fate yet? Barring Hall of Fame pre-seasons both Jones and Simpson are done in Cincy. Jones could be out of chances in the NFL. Simpson has avoided making ink on a police blotter and remains youthful enough for another NFL team depleted at WR to give Simpson a chance to earn a spot. Simpson could end the 2010 season in the AFC North, just not wearing Black & Orange. Maurice Purify managed to get arrested in the off-season and will manage to be the 1st WR cut in the pre-season and the 1st to find a job in the CFL.
