Many fans are still wondering why the Miami Dolphins gave up anything for Chase Claypool.

When the NFL trade deadline approached, both media and fans believed that a big move was coming down the pike. Instead, the Dolphins made a quiet move for disgruntled pass-catcher Chase Claypool.

The deadline came and went and Claypool was the Dolphins big prize. Miami obtained the WR and a 7th-round pick from the Bears for a 6th-round selection.

Claypool started his career on the inactive list but managed to play in 9 games. He was targeted two times in three different games and once in one game. In his 9 games with the Dolphins, he managed a total of 4 for 26 yards and did not reach the end zone.

Some fans believed and waited to see him take on a more Deebo Samuel-type role in McDaniel's offense. He did not take a single hand-off.

Claypool simply couldn't make an impact and to this day, many still wonder what the point of bringing him on board was for. He will be a free agent come March.
