Several teams could really use Rams WR Chris Givens services

chris givensLast week, Chris Givens was a healthy scratch. This is the same Chris Givens who went on a rampage of 50 plus touchdowns in the 2012 season.

In a Week 5 win against the Arizona Cardinals, Givens caught a 51-yard pass, resulting in the first touchdown of his NFL career. He would go on to catch a pass of 50-plus yards in five consecutive games from September 30 to October 21, 2012, an NFL rookie record for most consecutive games with a 50-plus yard reception. The receptions came against the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, and New England Patriots. Givens ended his rookie campaign with 42 catches for 698 yards and 3 touchdowns, leading all Rams receivers in receiving yards.

Despite high expectations heading into 2013, inconsistency at quarterback and poor play by Givens himself resulted in him having a down season. He finished the year with 34 receptions for 569 yards and no touchdowns. Well this year, he has been inactive and the team needs to get something for him.  Several NFL teams could truly use a deep threat on their team. The Jets are one that come to mind. They signed T.J. Graham, but he cannot catch passes.  Givens could be their deep guy who takes over for Stephen Hill who was let go this offseason.  Another team that could utilize his services are the Carolina Panthers.  Carolina has a very solid number one wide out but Cam needs a deep threat. 

If I am the Rams I would try to lands something for him, at least a late round pick. The trade deadline is looming, why not make a move.
