    Should we sign Chris Carter

    Should we sign Chris Carter for $1.5 million a year even if it means cutting OG, Ward or Mck ?

    Dolphins | C. Carter Note - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
    March 5, 2002 20:02:33 PT Kevin Seifert reports for the Star Tribune free agent WR Cris Carter (Vikings) told the Miami media today he would like to play for the Miami Dolphins. However, it does not appear the team is willing to meet his asking price of about $1.5 million annually. "Let's see if the economics can be worked out," Carter said. "If I'm not a Dolphin, it's not because I didn't want to be here or they didn't want me to be here. It's a matter of them trying to acquire players and they've only got so much under the cap." As previously noted, Carter went on to visit Cleveland and he is headed to St. Louis Wednesday.

    I would take Carter over McKnight for sure! But, ONLY if we could REALLY afford it.

    I'd give him...

    ...OJ's cap space - no hesitation.
    Looking forward to seeing an offensive specialist as head coach

    Bwhahahahaha. Cut McKnight? His base salary is $1 million. Factor in the signing bonus and his cap hit would be way too high. You don't cut contracts after the first year. It's absolutely insane. Plus Carter is looking for more then 1.5 million. Cleveland is going to offer him the #2 spot and at least 2 million a year.

    Our recieving core is damn good hence why they aren't taking Carter very seriously.

    We line up with Chambers/McKnight on the outside and put Gagsden in the slot with Ward as the 4th reciever and Patrick Johnson as the 5th and we are rocking. Our problems last year was using Chambers as a 3rd even when we knew how good he was and putting McKnight in the slot when he is a speed guy.

    Plus you put either Ricky or Warrick in at tailback and we have probably the most feared recieving corps after the Rams.

    Do you really think Chambers needs Carter to become one of the best WR's in the league? The kid lit the world on fire as a rookie, whose head was spinning 90% of the time. Just wait until Norv Turner gets his system in Chambers, and he gets used to the NFL.

    Carter would be really nice to have, but I think we are fine at WR.

    Cris Carter

    I would love to see him Miami, especially to teach Chambers the ins and outs. I think he is Cleveland bound. Played college ball at Ohio St and now they signed Robert Griffin today and he and Carter are friends. Not the he wouldn't look good in a Dolphin uni though.

    Just saw on ESPN that Carter talks have hit a snag in Cleveland and that he probably won't be playing in Cleveland or St. Louis next year!
