    I don't understand why so many fans are ready to throw huge money at G. Jennings. The packers are smart and locked up Nelson and then drafted Cobb.

    Based on production, age and injuries I would not offer Jennings anything over 3yrs at $7mm per with little guaranteed money. He surely will get a better offer elsewhere.

    The smarter money is spent on cornerbacks in free agency and then taking two WR's within the first 5 rounds.


    for us to be successful we need a true passing offense with several good receivers not a bunch of smurfs and an overpaid aging Greg Jennings.

    We need a good FA WR and the draft.

    Perhaps you didn't notice how much having veteran receivers helped the other rookie qbs this year. Jennings gives Tannehill the best chance to succeed because he can stretch the field and be reliable. Jennings knows his age and injuries have decreased his value and so does Miami and the rest of his potential new teams. We make a lot of sense for him and have a comfortable amount of cap room. Coupling Jennings with a young stud Wr is a great situation since Jennings was already in an offense that shared the ball a lot. It's not like he is going to be paid top 5 money IMO.

    I want Wallace because of his ability to make plays down the field. We need speed. He's also younger than Jennings or Bowe.

    I agree. I think at 6-7 million a year I would take him. Otherwise I would go with younger Wallace or bowe.

    depends on what he is asking.

    just think back to Philbin and Matt Flynn. They came in, put their big number out there, Ireland/Philbin basically said Matt Flynn is worth this. They walked and the agent tweeted something bad about Ireland and co. Matt Flynn sits on the bench for 10 mil. Who won that standstill in the end? Jeff Ireland and Matt Flynn. Who lost? The sucker who took him. Good thing they covered their butts with Wilson. Got lucky.

    Everyone will be talking about nothing but this for the next 2 months, but I got a feeling like we are going draft bigtime. Philbin doesnt want disgruntled or overpaid or too old players that he can bank his future as a HC on.

    Jennings fits the offense and is a high character player. Which is why I think he is a much more likely signing then Wallace or Bowe.

    We need a proven veteran receiver AND a WR drafted high as well as a playmaking TE. We can ill afford to go into the season with a big lack of talent at WR or TE

    That statement doesn't make much sense because Wallace would DEMAND near twice what Jennings would, and you seem like you're all about the money/cap. So from that standpoint/logic the arrow would point up to Jennings.

    Jennings to Miami makes the most sense. Could be the "cheapest" of the 3 big WR FAs, he won't take long learning the system, has great work ethic, good leader, and is the best all around of the 3 WRs. People keep talking about his age like he's a RB or something. WRs can still be playmakers up to around 35 or 36 years age, especially with all the rules benefiting them. 5 more good years from Jennings would be great for him to mentor and mold a WR like Keenan Allen for example to take over being the #1 WR in Miami when Jennings retires. Jennings is the way to go.

    Jennings is a character guy that Philbin likes. He'll quickly become a leader in the locker room. He fits the west coast system much better, runs perfect routes, has great hands, and is a clutch player. I think he has a much better chance of getting signed as compared to Wallace, who I still wouldn't mind, or Bowe, who I don't really want at all.

    It ALL depends on how much money each of these guys want/expect. That includes our guys like Jake and Sean

    Everything has to put into perspective. Something kvado16 knows nothing about. Vincent Jackson got 5 yrs $55MM. Jennings has lost a step and is slower and shorter, 6'0'' vs 6'5" than Jackson.

    Im not saying that I wouldn't welcome Jennings, but not at a ridiculous number especially since we have such a lack of talent and have so many holes to fill.

    its too bad Jackson isn't available now, I'd throw that kinda money at him this offseason. He would be the best of Wallace and Bowe combined.

    I agree with the OP. I don't want to spend big $ on any free agent WR. None if the 3 are worth what they would want to be paid. I think we a combo of Wheaton and Allen, Hunter, Hopkins or Patton in the draft and move forward.

    And no I didn't include Patterson on purpose. If we use the #12 pick on that kid I'd be a bit worried,

    Jennings for 5-6M per year is well worth it IMO. I want Wallace but fact is he may cost too much.

    I think there's a very good chance Greg Jennings becomes a Miami Dolphin next season. Sure he's been banged up a bit, but the positives just outweigh the negatives by a long shot. He knows the system, is in the prime of his career still, is definitely a high character guy, and WANTS to be here. What's not to love?

    What makes you think he wants to be here? Show me the quote. The only thing that is certain is that he has a crazy @ss sister that will be a distraction and that he wants a fat payday from whichever team shells out the most money.

    for the right price, come on down.

    Wallace is going to take AT LEAST 10-11. I don't think Jennings will cost more than 8.

    I'm willing to wager that Wallace signs for 5 years $46M with $22M guaranteed

    Technically, Jennings can't say anything since he's under contract. However, we could probably pay him the most money, that's why I believe he'll want to be here...not only that but he's very familiar with the system. That alone makes Jennings worth it and you can't question his talent. If we're going to improve this offense, we're going to have to spend a some money for a top notch receiver. Thankfully, we have a ton of cap space to make it happen. The draft is an option, but there's a lot of uncertainty there as far as finding a number one WR who's going to make an immediate impact.

    I think it's going to take a lot more than that to sign Wallace...he'll probably want at least 10 mil.

    I want Jennings and Wallace. Jennings will come relatively cheap IMO considering how injury prone he has been for two straight years and I think Wallace is worthy of long term #1 WR money. The dude can go for roughly 90, 1200 and 10 year in and year out, and we should be able to afford both, along with Bess giving us a top WR corps for at least 3 years.

    They can sign both if Hartline leaves.
    It's better value Jennings for 9 mil than Hartline for 6 mil.

    But, seriously I'll take Jennings and drafting Patterson and burner like Steddman Baily.

    BTW, some of you guys are not realistic for signing Jennings at 6 mil... just don't understand market value.

    Call me the minority but I'd rather have Hartline at $5-6MM than Jennings at $9MM+.

    I just dont get this extreme love affair with Greg Jennings and why so many people are ready to break the bank for him. He's 5'11'' and not a deep threat.

    Thats why Wallace is the receiver I'd be willing to pay big money for. They are almost the exact same size but Wallace is younger and way faster.

    Jennings and Hartline in FA. Allen and another WR in draft. Then Miami is starting to go places with Jennings, Allen, Hartline, Bess, and Matthews. Allen and a CB with 2 of their 1st 5 picks would be ideal.
