Parcells to Keyshawn: Come on Down!


Keyshawn Johnson - SportswrapThe Miami Dolphins may not have any of Bill Parcells former players yet, but that surley could change.  According to a report on CBS4 in Miami, Bill Parcells has reached out to his former wr Keyshawn Johnson and informed him that if he decides to unretire, he has a place on the Miami Dolphins.

This comes after early speculation surrounding the hiring of Jeff Ireland as the “man in charge”.  With this comment coming from Parcells, it is going to lend more speculation to who exactly does have final say down there.

Keyshawn has been out of football for a year and has said over and over again that he is done, however, he also would not turn down a lucrative offer to play one more year, regardless of whether he likes his TV job.

The logical question would be where would KJ fit into the Miami offense.  First, Marty Booker was released today and that leaves open the number 2 wr position.  Second, KJ has the size to be a valuable pass catching TE, something that the Dolphins not only lack, but something that Bill Parcells covets.

In any case, it is far too early to start speculation on whether KJ is leaving television for another year of 2-a-days, bruises, and long mornings in a recovery spa, but at the same time, it is Keyshawn Johnson.

    I don’t think Keyshawn would want to block playing TE. I would like to see him on the team, but for a fair price and probably as the 3rd WR. We need to have our young guys (Ginn & another draft pick) on the field to learn and get better.

    I would love to see KJ back on the field especially as a fin…. he would be great to mentor Ginn and help with the development of a QB especially if we draft Matt Ryan with the 1st pick
