    Hey. Does anyone no anything new about oronde Gadsden. Because as we no, one of our needs is a number 3 wide reciever. And in my opinion gadsden would be the perfect man for the job. He was one of our starters a few seasons ago and he was just about a good as chambers. So i think he would almost be a shoe in if we resighn him. Does anyone no anything about his current situation. I no he was arrested a few weeks ago on a dwi charge. And one more thing. wat do you guys think of him and his abilities/probabilities to be our number 3 reciever. Thank you

    He's done with Miami and his career is probably done elsewhere too....just before his injury and afterwards there was a noticeable decline in his play...Randy McMichael and Donald Lee probably are faster than him, and when your TEs are faster than a WR, that isnt saying much....granted he had amazing hands, but when u cant seperate anymore cuase you've reached teh slowness that you are at, you are useless....

    OG gave everything had. His injuries have taken a toll on him and his football career as we knew it is done. One of the toughest recievers we have had.

    The man is done. Just let him go we have Wilkins, Minnis, Thompson, Simmons, and Tolver all competing for that spot. I'm happy with the choices we have now we just need someone to throw it to them.

    There's a reason why no one has even talked to Gadsden. He's old and team's don't think he can be a solid NFL player anymore. I'd be surprised to see him play another NFL game.

    Gadsen never used speed to get seperation. He always oustmuscle the DB for position in man to man, and he was good at finding the seam against zone coverage. I'm sure he still can do those things. His problem is his wheels are bad. No one wants to take a chance on signing him because no one thinks he can finsih a season...

    he still needs some form of speed to find that seam....he was never fast, but he did have okay speed, and when you are worse than okay speed-wise, you cant be a reciever in the NFL, no matter how good your hands are.

    Everybody treats him like he has done nothing for this organization yes he's got an arrogant attitude about him wanting more money. This guy has been the cause of more big playes at the end of the game than any WR on the team he may be getting older if he can stay away from injuries he has got good hand and good concentration at end a game during key stuations.

    Well you can't be grandma slow, but he has always been known for his lack of speed. Sometimes finding the seam is just settling into a spot and waiting for the throw. I thought he played WR like a TE. Physical. But regardless, as much as it pains me to say it, for I have liked OG in the past, he's done.

    Lighten up, Francis, if you don't have any curiousity on what happened/will happen to OG it doesn't mean that nobody does. You don't have to read the thread if you don't want to.
    IMO it was worthwhile to ask about him, he was a guy who gave his all for the Fins the last few years

    its pretty self explanatory actually

    Indeed. OG was great for Miami. I loved watching his "great hands" go to work. Throwing to him on 3rd and long was almost like an automatic 1st down. The man has some of the best hands in a receiver I have ever seen. I wish him the best in his life. But his time with Miami is done.

    Just like Marino, you fans just need to learn how to let go. It's time to look ahead to winning a championship.

    Well lucky for him he has thriving clothing business to fall back on in hard times. ROLMAO. He's done like dinner baby. He should go see Ickey Woods and borrow the meat wagon! I did always enjoy watching him catch the ball though.

    They have already cut him. Or just didn't resign him. Whatever.
