Good news, guys: Pascal has been relied on less in each of the past four years. So we have that going for us.

Healthy for 17 games in 2022; targeted 19 times.
And 246 special teams plays last season.

He played 54% of ST snaps and only 29% of offensive snaps. A meh signing to the fullest.

Big physical WR who can block. Adds much needed size to the WR room especially if DHop is traded. Pascal made a mistake signing with Philly last season as a FA. When the Eagles traded for AJ Brown it pushed Pascal down the depth chart.

My guess is that the Cards offense will be run heavy similar to the Browns and you need WRs who can block. So I think this is a good signing depending on how much they paid in compensation.

Couldn't be that much.

This dude was just robbed at gunpoint 3 weeks ago.

Got to see the money but I assume it's not a lot.

Solid additional. Reliable WR3 type. Can play outside and inside. Always healthy.

Huge, step up from guys like Tweezy.
If he's WR3, we're in trouble. He's a 4/5. That's okay, as he will be super cheap and we need JAGs to fill out the roster

If Hopkins isn't moved

1 Hopkins
2 Brown
3 Moore (be nice, this is on paper)
4 Dortch
5 Pascal

If Hopkins is moved, then Pascal might leap frog Dortch just because if his size, but I would expect another WR broght in too.

I don't think it's so simple as we don't we have much outside. I think it's more like,

Outside

1. Hopkins
2. Browns
3. Pascal

Inside

1. Moore
2. Dortch

And if Hopkins goes as is likely Pascal is going to play a lot as it stands.

Were this true, it would be much worse of a signing and basically giving up at the position. If this JAG is playing as #2...oof.

Thankfully I don't think the team is trying to put that much on the kid's shoulders. Cheap solid depth that can play special teams. In that frame, it would be an okay signing.
