    If Wilson's numbers are $12 million guaranteed then it's only $4 million a year not 8.

    Umm, actually he was the a top receiver with the Rams before the Pats. If you said he is a risk because of his inconsistent past health history, that would be a possibility, but the man does have skills when he is on the field.

    Money feels about right for Amendola, though he comes with injury concerns. Wilson and Amendola seem like 2 wide receivers that will mesh well with Tannehill.
    Stills/Parker/Amendola/Wilson/Carroo/Grant. There has to be another move coming with this group, I wouldn't feel very comfortable if I was Parker.

    He'll be in camp, but will he make the team? We have 5 current locks and he's not one of them. He also offers nothing on special teams.

    Fine we can go with your numbers but then aren’t you implying he won’t see the full contract? Sounds even worse to me now.

    And I don't know why people are even mentioning Parker. This has nothing to do with him. Do people really think we're going to go with four small receivers? This speaks more to Carroo and everyone's favorite -- Grant. Grant is just a gadget player. He's not a guy you want on the field in 3/4 WR sets consistently.


    Our depth chart should read:

    1. Parker
    2. Stills
    3. Wilson
    4. Amendola
    5. Grant
    6. Carroo and everyone else

    I must have missed the part of the TOS which said mods must apporve of signing Danny Amendola.

    If you have issues with moderators in future please raise it formally rather than on the public forum.

    And I thought we weren't right there with Cleveland...Yep neck n neck.

    Has any 1 player from NE's offense went elsewhere and been productive?

    Terrible offseason 1 for the record books atm.

    $6M per year for a guy who made $1.7M last year & $21M over 11 years in the league....average of 1.9M per year. Does Mike think this is Monopoly money? He is a joke.

    NE only signed him to $31M over 5 years when he was 27 years old.

    I realize inflation but evidently Mike does not realize history....

    Amendola is made of glass. I don’t get this signing at all, something is awry.

    Unreal.

    The Dolphins suddenly have all of this money to sign free agents when yesterday they couldn't even sign their own draft picks? Curious. Didn't want to pay Landry though.........Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    They pretty obviously didn't want Landry back.

    They tried to shop him twice, and apparently after the big fight he had that got him and Drake ejected, they realized he hadn't really grown up at all.

    once we elected to trade landry he should have been replaced with caroo or a late round draft pick. this money could have been spent on norwell. why do we trade good players only to splurge on FA replacements. you can have all the WRs you want but if you don't have time to throw the ball it really doesn't matter.

    and spare me the "smart" football player bs. no one was questioning the culture and football IQ after 2016. Winning creates culture. Bringing in Jay Cutler and Julus Thomas absolutely killed our offense last year and now gase wants to blame smarts and culture? Nothing more than a Philbin like excuse.

    This is great. One FA disaster closer to a full regime change.

    The 2 guys we just got to replace landry were undrafted FAs. We should have gone that route to to replace him. I think Tannenbaum is a few sandwiches shy of a picnic.

    The Dolphins sent a offer to Landry. He felt he was worth more so they traded him away. Believe there were rumors leaked they had been trying to trade him away for over a year now. So there had to have been a falling out between him and the FO.

    Yes, let's be the ones to make Norwell the highest paid interior lineman in NFL history. Because those are the types of signings that have worked well for us in the past.

    You make a signing like that when you are one piece -- that piece -- away. Not when you're clearly in contention for the top overall draft choice next year.

    Don't mind the Wilson signing. Taking a chance on a younger player with a good skill set while not paying much guaranteed money is worth it IMO. Not a big fan of signing a 32 year old receiver though but with only a little over 8 million guaranteed, I guess it's not that big a risk. Don't think Parker is going anywhere. Still need Parker and Stills to play outside. Don't think they will get rid of Carroo just yet either. Amendola most likely will be gone next season. I know I am just asking to be disappointed, but still hoping that Parker steps up and finally plays up to his full potential.

    Does this deal have an easy out after the first year?

    It's going to be even more laughable when Amendola plays about 6 games next season. At least we signed Albert Wilson to be his backup.

    Lol you obviously never watched Cutler before he became a dolphin. He lived of that cannon arm and could get away with throwing off his back foot. Still had the bad habit but none of the arm strength.

    I'll go back to my armchair now and let the pro educate me further...

    I’d be excited except FA signings never come to Miami and be successful.

    WTF are you looking at? He's played in 12 or more games every year in the past five years. Three of the last four years he's played in 14 or more. If you're going to bash the move, at least get some facts right.

    I see him as more of a player/coach. His experience and intelligence will hopefully work wonders in practice and film sessions with the young guys that maybe just don't get it. I like his hard nosed style and hope that he can stay on the field but, more importantly, I want to see him be a positive influence with the WR corps and teach some of the youngsters how to go about the business of being a professional.

    Actually, get your fact straight, pal. What did I say? Has played in MORE THAN 12 GAMES only three times since 2010. Which is precisely factual. 2014, 2015, and 2017.

    2011: 1
    2012: 11
    2013: 12
    2016: 12

    If that was your point (which we both know it wasn't), why wouldn't you say he's played in more than 12 games three times since 2014?

    Not sure if you noticed but we've needed and neglected the guard position for quite some time. Norwell would be a building block at a position of need and would have been money well spent.

    We created a hole at slot WR because our coach can't handle strong personalities and replaced him with two former undrafted FAs for 14mm/yr. That's not a good use of your resources.

    My point was pretty clear, actually. The guy has only played more than 12 games in a season 3 times since 2010. Not sure what else needs to be explained to you.

    I'll even be generous and drop off 2011, since he only played 1 game that season. If you're cool with a guy who misses 3 games per year on average over the last 6 years, good for you.

    Include 2011 and he misses an average of 4.5 games over the past 7 years.

    But I am quite sure at 32 years of age, that's only going to improve.

    Without looking it up, I think that Stills is the only receiver with more than 4 years experience on the team. Some of the younger guys haven't been on the field enough to really call them veterans. There is a lot of youth and inexperience in the WR corps to be coached up.

    He'll turn 33 during the 2019 season. I don't think it matters that he was a decent slot receiver for the Rams in his mid-20's. I might be ok with the move it's a cheap deal and Miami wasn't going to give Wilson $8 million. I just don't see room for two slot receivers.
