These last few days have been very interesting for the Miami Dolphins. Reports are starting to come out that the Dolphins will go after both Mike Wallace and Greg Jennings.
That does not mean they will get both… Or either. Wallace is asking about 12 a year for five years. Jennings is asking 14 a year. Jennings is a great wide receiver, but has has trouble staying healthy. If the Dolphins were to sign both they would have about 20 million left to fill many other holes.
Jeff Ireland wanted to close the gap between the Dolphins and the Patriots. To do that the Dolphins need more then two wide receivers. There is a better option then Jennings, Brian Hartline. I’ve said it time and time again that he would only improve with the addition of Wallace. Jennings is a great route runner and pass catcher, but so is Hartline… For about half the price. The Dolphins drafted Hartline and to get rid of him would be a repeat of Wes Welker just a few years ago.
Two other plays that may come into the Phins view as early as this weekend. Michael Turner and Nnamdi Asomugha. The Dolphins could get a second chance at Turner, who is going to be cut by the Falcons. He would be a great third down back behind Lamar Miller, for the right price of corse. Asomugha is an okay corner who the Dolphins will look at. Nnamdi is an overhyped corner who got over paid by the eagles, after being the number one corner on a subpar team. But the Dolphins love those players, don’t they?
It is very hard to see what the Dolphins will do next month, but it will be very exciting and hopefully but the team over the hump!
