Raiders send 5th rounder to Bills for Zay Jones

I remember him going crazy two years ago, then nothing after a coaching/system change. My previous co worker (Bills fan) said he's decent, but never clicked in new system.
The internet mentioned drops could be an issue.

He must have problems w his drops because his catch rate is horrible. Last season, targeted 102 times, caught only 56. 55% catch rate.

I will say this, it’s better than Amari Cooper’s last full season w us - 2017, when he had a 50% catch rate. We pretty much all hated watching him drop a shitload of balls that year.

As a point of reference, last season AB (not the best hands in the business, by the way) targeted 168, caught 104, 62%.

Beckham had a 62% rate last season as well.

I think the WR with the best hands in the business right now is Thomas w NO (85%), although he benefits massively from playing with BY FAR the most accurate QB who ever lived.

Say is a big target who would be a nice tool in the box if he can hang onto the ball. If he can’t, I don’t want to fucking see him on the fucking field, because I fucking HATE DROPS!!! They piss me off to no end, which is why I didn’t lose any sleep over ditching Coop. Especially since we got a first -rounder for him.

This season is not our season. Next season. That’s our season.

If we’re going to make trades, we need to get better players than this.

I agree. We seem to make trades just to make trades.... lateral moves. I don't mind this trade, but a WR that can't catch is pretty useless.
