The Dolphins biggest decision will likely be that of Kenny Stills. A year ago and we are not talking about an extension but Stills has developed into that deep threat Miami desperately needs and his rapport with Ryan Tannehill doesn’t go unnoticed.
Stills has improved in every aspect of his game and has made the most of every opportunity. In fact, Stills was the leading touchdown scorer by far with nine. Landry and Parker took 2nd with four each. Even Jay Ajayi couldn’t match Still’s scoring notching 8 on the season.
More importantly Stills is emerging as a leader on the outside and is well liked in the locker room. The Dolphins may not want to address two receivers in one year but they may have no choice.
The hangup however could be the drafting of Leonte Carroo in the 3rd round of last years draft. Carroo was not able to make any impact this year but the Dolphins still believe that he can develop into a very good receiver.
That being said, Stills has already developed and Miami needs to stop letting good players leave because of contracts. Unlike Rishard Matthews last season, Stills’ season did not come across looking as a “contract year” and Miami needs to recognize the huge performance jump as he has settled in.
Adding to this however is the fact that the Dolphins are still rebuilding the team and as such, is spending a lot of money on another receiver worth not addressing another position when his replacement is supposed to already be on the roster?
