Dolphins Gibson Struggles In OTA's

The Miami Dolphins spent a lot of money this past off-season.  Well over 200 million spread out over the next four to five years and while not all of it is guaranteed, 3.75 million is guaranteed to WR Brandon Gibson.  So far, Gibson isn’t impressing anyone at the OTA’s.

The Dolphins invested in the WR who has playmaking ability but struggles with consistency.  This past OTA, Gibson has been outplayed by Armon Binns who is a journeyman WR who has played three seasons for three different teams.  According to some in the local media, Gibson is struggling moving into the slot role.  The Dolphins are relying on Gibson to replace the traded Davone Bess who now slots in Cleveland.

There are those that believe Gibson is a safe roster spot due to the almost 4 million dollar guarantee but reality dictates otherwise.  Jeff Ireland will allow money to enter the equation but he will not solely base a decision to keep a player on the roster simply because he is expensive.  Ireland has pulled the rug out on previous mistakes mostly draft picks.  Still it is only OTA’s and Gibson is learning a new system.  What happens in training camp will have more to do with Gibson’s future than what happens in an off-season OTA.
