Always be roster managing.

In the here and now for Georgia fans, bigger news than Justin Fields hit yesterday.

Miami receiver Lawrence Cager is transferring to Georgia as a graduate transfer, helping the Bulldogs rebuild their depleted receiver corps.

Cager, a 6-foot-5 rising senior from Towson, Maryland, led the Hurricanes with six touchdown catches and 17.8 yards per reception in 2018. He caught 21 passes for 374 yards, both career-high totals, in 13 games.

If I’m not mistaken, that gives Georgia four wideouts on the roster that are at least 6-foot-5.  The sideline toss that is Fromm’s bread and butter is still alive and well.

Dial this clip up to the 2:51 mark and watch the catch.

I get the feeling Fromm and Cager are going to be doing a lot of timing work together this offseason.

    All the better to attack the corners in the 4th quarter as well as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Can’t wait to see it in action.

    I wonder why Landers hasn’t made more of an impact. Dude is huge and looks fast to me. With him and Bush and Pickens and Cager it should be a match up nightmare. Gotta put a short guy on one of them don’t they?

    Also should be able to block the perimeter pretty effectively.

    Senator, you should have a “porn warning” disclaimer hatched to this header.
    We all saw what Clemson’s big tall receivers did to Alabama.
    But one wonders…why isn’t he in the NFL?
    I know the ready answer would be that he was more interested in getting his degree..but the question is begged none the less.

  4. No doubt… This kid underachieed at Miami… He didn’t have a QB close to Fromm’s touch. This position has gone from an area of slight concern to perhaps the biggest strenght on the team (minus the O-Line).

    Just wow…This is icing on the cake with the Pickens commitment and Wolf transfer. I really hope Kirby lets Coley run a more balanced offense for all 4 quarters, something closer to a 55% run/45% pass split. My expectation is Fromm should take a step forward in his Junior year if the coaches will call for the ball in the air more.

    If Jake gets his timing down with the WR room, we stay relatively injury free, and upperclassmen leadership drives the team this will be a year for the ages. I haven’t been this excited for a UGA season in a LONG time. My goodness what a time to be a DAWG fan.

    Trend is to faster, taller WR.
    Clemson and A&M displayed that in 2018.
    CMR influence in transfer? He did not go to UF, or OSU to cuddle with Fields.
    DAYTONA. IT IS CRANKED UP.
    GREATEST EVENT IN RACING!
    SUPER CARS…and some spectacular eye candy.

    Is he immediately eligible? Did someone in Miami call him a bad name?

    Only 21 catches for the entire year against ACC competition? How many passes did he catch vs clempsen?

      I’m impressed he had that many catches considering the QBs at Miami last year. Neither Rosier or the freshman were reliable in getting the ball out to the WRs.

    You know this is going to put some pressure on the OC. With Chaney gone and these kind of tools available, it is going to be an epic fail if we ever have to punt. 🙂

    Always nice to add an experienced 6’5 WR. The depth on the roster from top to bottom is unbelievable. Heck, our PWO’s would be considered good depth on most teams!

    I’m sure most folks are aware Kirby hired Shawn Watson as offensive analyst. Can’t say I’m impressed with Watson’s checkered career. I was concerned when we hired Hartley, as I figured the greater need was QB/OC coaching experience. I assume Hartley will handle a lot of recruiting work, something Watson probably doesn’t do as well. Meanwhile, analyst Watson can hopefully back up Coley with QB coaching, game planning, etc. Interesting move by Kirby to shore up the staff.

    Looks like Cager’s gonna go get the ball wherever Fromm puts it. Just gotta get his downfield blocking and playbook routes down in time for the ND game.
