    James has been a good football player though, nothing to do with his potential.

    In the case of Jesse Davis, we're talking about a raw UDFA who has been forced to play at 3 different positions in one season and actually played WELL. Not "pretty well for a rookie" or "pretty well all things considered" but the guy just flat out played well. I don't get this.

    I usually google search the gif, and right click it for "copy image address" and then link that to the image thing on your post reply.

    Major disappointment how? He had two touchdowns in the conference championship game and 152 yards in the Super Bowl. He isn’t even their focal point of their offense yet he still accrued those statistics.

    classic example of Pats using the crap out of a guy for dirt cheap them raping a guy like Tannenbaum who will give an aged guy his due and more. He'll be 5 mil easy, Pats had him for about a mil

    I guess it’s not the worst deal in the world, but it’s certainly questionable. Essentially it’s probably a 1y, 8.25M deal

    LOL

    I have to laugh it is so ridiculous!

    Do they know about Wilson?

    So we replaced Landry with one old guy and one unproven guy for about what Landry would cost?

    So Dolphins fans don't want to pay anyone anything but win anyways. Better have Tom Brady.

    Um - for half of what Landry would cost. 2 WRs and a 4th rounder for half of Landry. This was a good deal.

    No now you get to see even more thrown to Amendola and Wilson. Losing Landry was only acceptable to me because it signaled the end of that damn play. Now we’ll get even more smdh

    He won't last the year....that's something to complain about.

    The same people loving this dynamic WR duo instead of Landry, will be the same defending Tannehill that they never surround him with enough talent before midseason..

    We just signed an immensely injury prone guy whose success is based on the system and QB. The same system that features guys like Chris Hogan, who somehow wasn't good enough to crack the vaunted Dolphins receiving corps consisting of Legedu, Bess, and Hartline a few years ago. Yawn.

    Why is it not comforting that this team is not "rebuilding". We just had another trademark Dolphins year where we gave away dynamic talent all because our inept coaching staff can't handle them, same as its been for over a decade. Yet we stock the talent-starved roster with second rate FA's even when we are told cap space is at a premium. Here's to continued mediocrity.

    Not saying I like it, but have people ever heard of market price? Also, it's a lot different signing with the Pats for less than signing with this idiotic franchise. People up here in NE hate that he's gone.

    Any surehanded guy in that offense could put up the same numbers. Why do we care what numbers players put up in a New England system that can always manufacture open receivers and a QB who can find them on almost every play? That's not the way things work with non-HOF QB's.

    Most receivers are too stupid to play in that offense.

    Odd. Some here gave Miami **** for letting Hogan go because of his success with NE.

    You're probably right, but the same is true where nearly every other offense doesn't allow you to be immensely productive just by being smart.

    All I'm saying is that we have had issues where our coach is frustrated that our players aren't picking up the playbook after a year-plus in the offense. I think prioritizing smart players could be a good way to go if we really believe that Adam Gase is a guy who can run a high-flying world-class offense.

    For the record, I like Hogan. I think Miami could have and should have made him work. The thing is, you're talking about a guy who could have stuck around on the roster as a UDFA, being paid minimum salary. I like Hogan but wouldn't want us to sign him to good money either, though I'd rather him than Amendola. Why I point it out is just how inept this team really is - we sign a similar guy for decent money (when we're supposedly strapped and full of holes) to what we wouldn't keep for nothing years ago. It's sad that an HBO production crew can spot potential while a Dolphins organization with no proven receivers outside of a Davone Bess they didn't even like could not.

    Landry = 16 million
    8 million + 6 million = 14 million

    I’m not saying this can’t work out but those numbers (if what we are told is accurate) are a tad more than half.
