Going overkill with receivers isn't going to work. We saw what happened with Brandon Marshall - a great player by all means, but not a guy who really lifted the offense to a new level. If we're planning to get reamed every where else in free agency by letting guys like Long and Smith go, signing a star receiver or even two isn't going to put us anywhere near New England range.
Tannehill too, I feel the guy needs some serious help already.
I guess my main point is I don't want to depend on 1 wr anymore, like we did with Marshall.
I would rather us get two of them, and imo Wallace/Jennings don't fit the bill, compounded with their price tag.
If we trade a 2nd/3rd to move up into the first, that leaves us with 2 first's/1 second/1 third?
We draft Hunter and Patterson in the first.
Hopefully get Trufant in the second and maybe Rambo in the third?
Imho we should only re-sign Clemons, Starks, Garner, and Matt Moore.
So we have a boatload of money to spend.
I don't see any elite te's in this draft (could be wrong) so I rather not us force a high draft pick on a te this year.
We can slide Martin to lt, Jerry to rt, Samuda should be ready to start at guard, and we can sign a good FA Oguard to replace Incognito?
Use the rest of the draft to find pass rushers/lb's/cb's?
And then obviously these 3 positions would have to be worked on next year, along with te if we don't sign a Finley/Keller,etc.
What do you think, could this work?
We won the AFC East with Pennington, Ginn and Cammarillo . . . I think the better question is, when can we expect to see the Dolphins in a Super Bowl, and I'd venture to say it is gonna take more than 2 or 3 players. I do think it starts with having a very good draft and then relies on Tannehill taking the next step, so in a sense it could happen sooner than later . . . . but as we have seen over the years, these plans never seem to unfold the way we think they will.
Lol same thing i've been reading on this site since 2001
Still banging and laughing
The Dolphins would be wise to sign Greg Jennings and Mike Wallace. Doesn't seem feasible but let's not forget that the Dolphins are $46 million under the cap and could easily free up another $5 million by releasing Richard Marshall and Dan Carpenter. The cost of signing Greg Jennings has been stated to be lower than what Vincent Jackson signed for in Tampa Bay and given that it would only cost roughly $2 million to sign Jennings instead of extending Brian Hartline. The cost of signing Wallace and Jennings would eat roughly $20 million in cap space leaving us $30 million to play with ($25 if you count signing draft picks). I'd spend $7 million extending Sean Smith or Randy Starks...Due to a need at corner I say go with Smith.
This would obviously spell the end of Jake Long, Brian Hartline, and Reggie Bush in Miami but giving Tannehill two top 15 receivers will be seriously beneficial. Sign these two guys and follow my mock......
