    At this point, if Jennings really wants to be in Miami, is it that absurd a notion to think that Jennings takes a modest contract and we still go after Mike Wallace? They do complement each other perfectly..

    Draft a TE, give the reigns to Lamar Miller...and we still have 20 million in cap room and numerous draft picks to play with.

    The football equivalent of what the Heat did. And if you think the notion is silly, i'd remind you that the Ravens did almost the same thing in aquiring Anquan Boldin, Lee Evans, and drafting Torrey Smith.

    Bring in Jennings, draft Quinton Patton in the 2nd, and let Hartline walk. Yeah, he had 1000 yards, with 1/4 of those and his ONLY td in the Arizona game. He had about 750 over the next 14 games and zero tds. I'd rather spend the money on corners like Cox or Grimes and then let Matthews play on the outside with Jennings. Then Bess and Patton in the slots.

    Markus Wheaton = Mike Wallace

    why pay someone bank when you can get them for cheap?

    Jennings, Bailey, Wheaton, Hartline, Matthews

    trade Bess

    Green Bay have already told him he isnt staying, if the Packers didn't mind (and why would they) it wouldn't surprise me if Jennings had already worked out in Miami or even held contract talks. I know its technically against the rules but if the Packers dont mind why wouldn't the Dolphins get in early?

    Sign Jennings, keep Hartline, draft Woods and Swope ... a WR core of Jennings, Hartline, Woods, Bess, Swope and Matthews could put points on anyone. Sign Finley, keep Fasano, draft a tackle and our offense is sorted.

    Finfan54 ...I absolutely love your draft I don't know if it's realistic but I still love it; if we have a draft like that we are on our way.

    Just because Jennings wants to be here doesn't mean we won't have to match what other teams offer him. I doubt he takes anything to be considered a "modest" contract.

    We will sign one or the other, and honestly it will probably boil down to contract terms and negotiations...I would think Ireland and Philbin are open to both options, and will draft according to how FA pans out.

    Anyone who thinks he only runs the nine routes should watch that TD he scored against the NYG this year when he caught the slant and did the rest.

    When a team like the Steelers lets you walk, that kind of means something in my book.
    There's a good point to be made here. Jennings is indeed a more complete #1 type of WR than Wallace. Wallace is a pure deep threat and a bit faster than Jennings. However, Jennings is still a deep threat nonetheless as well as a complete WR who can play multiple positions at WR. Also signing Jennings and drafting a top notch pass rusher at 12, we can still use a 2nd rounder on a starter opposite Jennings and a 3rd on a deep threat WR (to play the Wallace role), this isn't a bad idea. It also allows us to let Starks walk to free up money to add a Jared Cook or Dustin Keller at TE.

    But if we grab Wallace, we should still grab two WRs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. I of course don't want Hartline back so...

    The notion that Jennings is a scrub or the fact that he isn't fast is hilarious.

    Dude was a top deep threat for years and he can run every route out there. He's a complete WR and is what this offense needs, get open for Tannehill.

    You would think Jennings is a RB or something with all the he's slow and old comments. WRs don't start slowing down until like 35.
