# 81 Az-Zahir Hakim
clear.gif
Position: WR
Height: 5-10
Weight: 185
Born: 06/03/1977
NFL Experience: 8 years

2004 stats
He played in 12 games - started only 5
He caught 31 passes for 533 yards and a 17.2 yards average per catch

His yards per catch last year was the second best in his career, on top of that, of his 31 ctaches 24 were for first downs and 3 for touchdowns. In other words only 4 of his 31 catches DID NOT result in a touchdown or a first down.

Is there any doubt how this guy can help us, if we're willing to spend the money and pay him.

One of Waanstadt and Spielman's problem was signing placers on clearance sales. You get what you pay for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's got some speed. For the right price he could fit into a slot role.

Hakim is so fragile and small. If he can play all 16 games and comes cheap, Im all for it. Linehan seems to like these small fast guys anyways. I still prefer Boston over Hakim though.

2 words, David Boston, but seriously, if we CANNOT and only if we CANNOT get Boston, Hakim would be an awsome #3 WR also.

I'd rather just let Davis the rookie have the slot. I'm starting to think he'll make the team. Seems like a good kid who will catch everything thrown his way.

I hope that the "2005 Dolphins Theme song" isn't as pathetic as that Karate Kid song. Hopefully it's a little more up to date with the times.

Hakim was not cut by the Rams. After 3 successful seasons as the 3rd WR in St. Louis, he signed with Detroit as an UFA in 2002. The Lions tried to make him the #1 and then the #2 WR. He struggled in that role. Last year he was mostly the 3rd WR, and he seemed to play much better. Hakim would not have been cut by Detroit if the draft did not play out the way it did, with Mike Williams falling to them. The Lions felt they had to stay true to their board and pick Williams even though WR was not an area of need for them.

Hakim is small, fast, and plays the slot well. He is a veteran who still has some tread left on his tires. He fills a specific need (3rd WR in the slot) and would be a clear upgrade over what we have now (Derrius Thompson). Hakim can also be an effective PR.

David Boston, if healthy, could be a significant addition to our WR corps, too. A healthy, focused Boston is a much more versatile and dangerous receiver than Hakim. However, depending on Boston is much riskier than signing Hakim. I wouldn't mind signing both of them. However, if we were to sign only one, I'd prefer Hakim (less risk).

Guy has lost his burst.... hip and ankle injuries have hurt his cutting ability.... needs to play on turf indoors to make up for physical loses.... would not hold up well playing in the AFC East... too expensive....

The reason it never worked for us in the past, was because our HC was a poor evaluator of talent. Look at the Patriots, they have brought in guys like Rodney Harrison who has helped them to 3 superbowls. David Terrell is gonna have a breakthrough year for them this year.

apparently he couldn't do it well enough in Detroit or St. Louis....

St Louis didnt cut Hakim. Detroit signed them so they couldnt keep him. Yes he isnt durable, but Hakims stats werent great because every other WR on that team was hurt. Hakim is NOT a #1 reciever. But, i think he would be very effective as a slot reciever in our system
