    Why Miami Dolphins Must Beware of Big-Name WRs

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...f-big-name-wrs




    Getting Tannehill help is imperative, and with approximately $45 million in cap space at his disposal, Ireland has no excuse for failure. Because the Dolphins so desperately need to upgrade this unit, everybody is operating under the assumption that they will sign Bowe, Jennings or Wallace.
    Not so fast.
    Handing out mega-contracts to free agent wide receivers is one of the riskiest personnel moves an NFL franchise can possibly make.
    Whether it's the transition between systems, issues developing chemistry with a new quarterback or getting complacent after cashing in, high-priced wide receivers have a terrible—and, in the Dolphins' current situation, terrifying—track record.

    1. Wallace

    And use a first day pick on a WR
    Dmitri Patterson gets indefinitely suspended for "not showing up" and Buttfumble got a raise for "not showing up" - go figure how the JESTS world works?

    I want an athletic TE more than one of these big name receivers.

    Yeah, let's just keep what we have, and roll the dice for another WR in the draft who will be the second coming.

    Marshall was Pro Bowl, and All Pro, and Vincent Jackson was lights out. Don't want to take a chance on proven #1 WR's, let's just take a draft shot.

    Do these guys get paid for these blogs?

    I gave up on bleacher report a long time ago, I saw this on facebook recently though which made me chuckle:



    Go to 1:35 to hear the bleacher report lead draft writer call Tannehill the worst pick in the entire draft... you just cant get insight like you can from bleacher report on any other site

    I'll take any one of the three. I still think Bowe is underrated.
