The Miami Dolphins needed someone, anyone to take a little bit of pressure off Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Someone did, it just wasn’t who anyone expected.
Man, I bet Trent Sherfield is wondering if there is some way that the Miami Dolphins can allocate some of the money they gave Cedrick Wilson Jr., you know the guy who is getting paid top dollar to be the #3 receiver for the team, and give it to him because he is 100% the number three guy Tua is looking for in this offense.
I think we all sort of knew that Sherfield was going to make the team mainly because of familiarity with the offensive scheme Mike McDaniel was going to install and that his efficiency at blocking was something that can be a real asset in the running game. I don’t think we all thought he would be the #3 wide receiver on the team 10 games into the season but that’s exactly what has happened.
I also don’t think we would see him make beautiful catches like the one he made last week against the Browns.
Just a beautiful play from top to bottom.
It took Sherfield a few games to get inserted into the offense, but as of late, he has taken some much-needed pressure off of Tyreek and Jaylen Waddle. We all know that the goal on offense, in the passing game, is to get the ball into the hands of Hill and Waddle as much as possible. We also know that forcing them the ball every pass is problematic. Someone needed to step up and be the 3rd man, kind of how Hulk Hogan was when he started the NWO with Hall and Nash. I know you know what I’m talking about.
Sherfield has taken the pressure off and is now a guy that teams have to respect as a viable option because if you don’t then he will grab key 3rd down after 3rd down which will lead to major frustration which I’m all for as long as it’s not me experiencing it.
