Will Fuller was supposed to add a huge dynamic to the Dolphins offense but instead, he added a cool $10 million to his bank account.
The Fuller signing is so bad that he skipped the second week of the season for personal reasons that have been reported to be a contemplation of retirement. While I can’t be 100% certain that is true, I can say that his broken finger has taken seven weeks to heal. Meanwhile, Tua Tagovailoa broke his ribs, returned, broke his finger, returned, and Fuller is still getting paid on Tuesdays.
Fuller has managed to catch four passes this year but he has a two point conversion under his belt.
Needless to say, Stephen Ross should be docking Grier’s wallet for this misuse of his money. Can you imagine if Grier had opted to not sign Fuller and given the money to Mike Gesicki instead, on a new deal?
Fuller’s contract is the absolute worse when you compare what Miami has gotten out of the deal. Making it far worse is that the Dolphins gave this money to a guy who was going to be suspended for violating league testing rules and hasn’t been healthy for a full season in his career. Oh what Miami could have wasted this money on instead. I mean, they could have given the $10 million to Josh Rosen to be a backup to Tua Tagovailoa. That might have equaled a worse spending.
