And McD managed to get career years out of every other Bronco WR when he was here (his only real positive when you think about it), so that doesn't exactly work in Royal's favor either.
Not every receiver is meant to be run around on crossing routes getting 2 yard gains at a time.
Royal had excellent man beating skills, he would be incredible if he played for Manning's offense today.
