    Dolphins | Like Stokley - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
    20:46 PT: The Baltimore Sun reports the Miami Dolphins are interested in free agent WR Brandon Stokley (Ravens).



    He's another fast skinny white guy that is hurt all the time.

    Well I didn't know about injury issues but I'm actually happy to hear we're interested.

    A while ago I pretty much clumped Stokely and Martay Jenkins together as guys with loads of potential that could just need a break. We haven't really been linked to Jenkins yet, but I'm glad to hear we could give Stokely a chance.

    I like Stokely as a slot WR. If he's signed, and say Thompson is signed, where does McKnight fit in? Answer: He probably doesn't and would likely be dropped in favor of someone who can be equally as productive with a smaller cap figure.

    Sounds good. That would give us four yougn wide receivers including Simmons. That would be a great move. He fits a lot better than J-Mac in the slot. Simmons isn't a bad fourth receiver.

    Why are we ignoring a clearly more refined WR who comes cheap and is an explosive return man - Arizona's MarTay Jenkins?

    stokely was the guy who made the huge play for a long TD in teh superbowl a couple of years ago that broke the game wide open for the ravens.

    we could very well end up like this
    1) chambers
    2) some stud rookie that we will get in the seocnd rd. ala chambers
    3) Thompson
    4) Stokely

    the thing i would like about this is haveing a bunch of wide recievers who work hard and play there roles. not to mention great potential for the future!

    I'd rather have Jenkins...

    I wonder why no one seems to be interested in him.

    That is mainly due to his agent asking for 3 million a year.

    I assume that you are referring to Sam Simmons. If so, when have you seen Simmons play to know that he "isn't a bad fourth receiver".

    Hah precisely.

    The 4th WR has to be able to step in if one of the starters is injured because our 3rd WR is the slot guy.

    This year, J-Mac was our 4th WR. I'd say considering his production beat both Gadsden and Chambers after he stepped in, that him as our 4th WR worked out pretty well for us.

    I think Expo is right Stokley would be a great slot man and I think thats why we're considering him. Thats where he fits. I think our interest in him comes from Hilliard re-upping with the Giants because I think Hilliard was going to be our slot man in the three-wide sets.

    Thompson is no slot man, I don't think Conway or Robinson are either. I've never considered Martay Jenkins to be a slot guy either so maybe thats why we haven't gone for him. Overall I think we've got two WRs coming to us. There will be a dude who can play slot (probably on the cheaper side) and a dude to compete with J-Mac for the starter's job and the loser of that battle gets 4th WR status.

    3 million???

    seriously finfan...

    I wasn't aware of that...

    well maybe when he comes back to reality we can talk...

    although after Dre Bly got nearly 5 million some poor team will give him 3.

    5 mil for Dre Bly...yikes.:goof:

    Isn't Martay Jenkins also coming off of a season ending injury as is his running mate David Boston? Perhaps that and his bloated asking price have shied teams away.

    Re: 3 million???

    Yup. When Big O did his piece from the combine on WQAM, he and Jason Cole were laughing their a**es off about Jenkins salary demands.

    With guys like Dre Bly going for 5mil, it almost makes me a little more confident in the Phins tactics of not over paying for players. Teams are really breaking the bank on some pretty mediocre performers. The Bly signing (with Tory James still out there, and probably resonably priced and just as productive) is perhaps the most insane move for a DB since the Raiders threw money at Larry Brown.

    I thought Jermaine Lewis, now with Houston, did that.

    Bly should be good, but after only one year as a full time starter the large contract is slightly risky. Bly is a big play maker, but he still shows indiscipline in coverage, so he is prone to a little 'buckleyitus'.

    Speaking of Terrell Buckley I hear the Lions gave him a 5 year $25 million contract with a $7.5 million signing bonus...

    He reminds me of a better version of J.Ogden.....but only slightly better.

    Stokley and Ogden...

    that is not a bad comparison...in my estimation...
    Although I think Stokley might be quicker...maybe Ogden has better hands.
