    PER ROTOWORLD

    Dolphins claimed WR Armon Binns off waivers from the Bengals.
    Binns was waived by the Bengals on Saturday. Although Binns went from starting five of the Bengals' first six games to on the street in less than two months, he should get immediate playing time in the Dolphins' unproductive and lead-footed receiver corps. However, he's not a threat to come into any value during the final two weeks of the fantasy playoffs. A second-year UDFA, Binns is still only 23 years old.

    i actually go to/ saw Armon play at the university of cincinnati. he was our #1 here and he was pretty good. he's a decent playmaker that just needs the ball. im not saying that he's gonna fix our HUGE wide receiver issues but i think that it's an upgrade.. i doubt he plays over matthews or moore but i'd expect the fins to try to develop him into something like a 3rd or 4th receiver. unfortunately, we happen to have 5 or 6 receivers that are 4th receivers. regardless, i like the pick up.

    Seen him a couple times for Cincy, he's worth a look considering whats already on the roster.

    Now that we have our Alpha WR we can select that offensive tackle from Southeast Montana in the first round.

    Too little too late

    It'll take him at least a week to pick up on the offense

    Well at least we've kept our "no receiver's before the 4th round" rule in tact.

    He had 4 catches for 40 yards against us. I thought he was a fast but he only runs a 4.53 although that already makes him one of the faster receivers on our roster. Not sure what to think about this

    I thought there was pretty good hype about this kid coming out of exhibition season. They were pretty deep at receiver IIRC and he won stiff competition and got significant playing time in Cincy. Based on all that, it surprises me that he got cut by them.

    I think Cincy was in a pinch when their kicker Nugent got hurt and they needed to sign Josh Brown for a week or two. I believe they let Binns go for Brown although I may be wrong.

    Nice... So Ireland got his vaunted undrafted rookie WR. Now he can focus on whichever lineman he wants to draft in April

    ---------- Post added at 06:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:23 PM ----------

    Sure can, Sherman will send him on a reverse that will lose 8 yards.

    I was actually wondering if this means that now he will start to poach ex-Bengals guys like he does/did ex-Cowboy players?

    Ireland is a Moron. This is how he spends his days????????????? Following undrafted players and looking under rocks to improve the end of our roster that never sees the field???????

    We're playoff bound now. He's the signing that will save Ireland's job.

    not sure why this makes Ireland a moron. I think it means he will do anything to help this team and its weakness. Whether you agree with the totality of ireland or not does not make this a bad move.

    Everything we have been doing since Tennessee is showing looksies to next year. If we see Binn at all it will be late in the new england game. No one picks up this offense quick enough and if nobody understands this by now your not paying attention. We are gathering potential and he is 6'3 210 which is the same size as the kid from California U. which is what his fans are probly worried about.

    I think it means he doesnt know where to look so he looks everywhere including garbage cans. And he then thinks what he finds in those garbage cans are actual upgrades when they arent.

    Why are people complaining about this? He's a WR who has great size and decent speed with good hands. If he dosen't work out who cares.

    I'd rather have him on our team than some Scrub DB that can't cover me.

    FYI The Patriots put in a claim on waivers for him also. I guarantee there would be 10 threads on here to the extent of " look Biilicheck is taking shots at wr's why aren't we? "

    Also the Bengals are pretty stacked in the WR position even without Sanu.

    Guy has good size and is young. That doesn't always equate to anything but since the season is over, who gives a ****? If he pans out, great.

    People are acting like morons. You work with what you got and we are razor thin at WR. Binns actually looked really good going into the season but didn't fulfill in the regular season. Decent waiver claim that several teams put in for. I was surprised he was released and wasn't even more surprised we were able to claim him.

    Except for the whole one is a first round talent and one was an UDFA. If any sane person passes on Allen or any other top tier receiver because of this pickup, then they should just shut down football operations.

    This is a reasonable pick up for a WR starved team. Nothing should be expected to come of it......but we'll all be thrilled if this acorn blooms.
