    He's got 1 year left here. We're preparing for life after Bess, most certainly.

    No. Unless we draft Swope in which case it is a definite yes.

    Nubs posted something last night dolphins want to use Hartline, Wallace, Gibson, and BESS. I think he stays at least 1 more year.

    I think Bess has a better chance of being in Miami Opening Week than Armon Binns does...who btw every one seems to have penciled into making the opening day roster. Guess people forgot how Naanee like he was at the end of last season.

    I think he could stay or go and we'd be fine either way. He'll fit in great in the revamped offense and do what he has always done - be a reliable 3rd down option and move the chains.

    But if someone wants to give us a pick for him, I'm sure we'll be more than happy to oblige. Not to mention it would free up a little more cap space too. The guy is one of the better slot receivers in football - he is going to be an even better fit for someone else than he is for us.

    He's gone if we get the right offer.

    I want Bess to be a Dolphin for life. He is going to be VERY effective again. He is no longer the #2 option in the passing game.. More like #4 or #5 after Wallace, Hartline, Keller, and possibly even Gibson..

    Gibson is not a slot receiver. If we draft Tavon Austin or Ryan Swope, then yes, Davone Bess's days are definitely numbered. But not yet.

    I don't think Bess is in the long term plans. That is unfortunate because he is one of my all time faves. He is a grinder and a real good dude, but I think Philbin is looking for a different kind of receiver for his role.

    Yeah I think he stays one more year unless we get an offer. I'd like to think Binns is gone and we'll still draft a kid to learn.

    Bess is a Dolphin and this just makes our WR corp better. We have zero excuse this season in the passing game.

    Wallace, Hartline, Bess and Gibson in a 4 wide WR set? Someone is going to be open, you can't stop that foursome.

    If we draft Swope, then Bess is a goner.

    If Bess could outrun any of our LB's in the 40 yard dash I would let him stay another year. To bad he has the speed of a DT because he really is a good rcvr.

    I think the Dolphins will draft a slot receiver in the upcoming draft. One that is more of a scoring threat. There is just too much talent at receiver in this years draft and with Bess becoming a free agent next year, it's the smart thing to do. Bess will either stick around this season and play out his contract or will be traded for a late round pick.

    The problem with Bess is that he's a liability on the outside. And when one of your starting outside WRs goes down with injury, you want your 3/4/5 WRs to be able to handle that spot.

    In a world without injury, I agree that Bess should stay. But since injury is a NFL reality, we want our 3/4/5 WRs to be able to handle both outside and inside receiver positions when needed. Brandon Gibson, Rishard Matthews, and Ryan Swope are the type of 3/4/5 WRs that can be ok either outside or inside.

    Bess commands over $3MM in cap space this year. There are 3-4 very good slot guys out there in the draft that are faster and cheaper than Bess. Most of those guys will be available in the later rounds as well. My money is Bess is gone.

    I think he is gone if we draft a wr in the 1st few rounds.

    I think we should keep him. We have Wallace to occupy and over the top safety and a bunch of pain in the asses underneath. I like it!!!

    He's on the last year of his contract and we don't need the cap space. I'm betting they let him play out his contract and decide what they want to do next season.
