In a recent article pertaining to Wes Welker possibly feeling disrespected for his decreased role last season, and wanting to "stick it to" the Patsies by signing with a division rival, there was a little nugget that I found interesting.
"Dolphins coaches reportedly "weren't thrilled" that a back injury kept Davone Bess out of the last three games of the 2012 season. That might help explain their interest in Brandon Gibson, as well as a passing glance at Welker."
Could this be the reason we are looking at Gibson and possibly Swope? Do you think the staff is ready to move on from Bess this season, or at least give him some competition rather than just handing the position to him? I love Bess but I would personally like to give Thigpen a chance, he made some plays from the slot late last season.
