I know some of us here are interested in him as a deep threat..

http://www.profootballweekly.com./PFW/Commentary/Spins/2005/spins042605.htm

"Hakim, who signed a four-year deal in 2002, rarely was used as a slot receiver  his natural position and the one at which he is most effective.

Hakim, 28, can be effective if used properly, but at 5-10, 181-pounds, teams will want to test his speed and quickness before signing Hakim. A dislocated hip in 2003 and a nagging ankle injury have robbed him of his top-end quickness and change-of-direction skills, and Hakim’s ideal environment is an indoor, pass-first team that plays on a fast surface. His hands are suspect but, if you can get him the ball in space and keep him healthy, Hakim is a worthwhile addition."

He fits some of the things Miami needs...slot WR, speedy

The last time he had success was in St louis where they used him properly...This guy cant take the beating of starting...but hes an excellent threat on third down and special teams

Too many injury problems. He looked good in St Louis because they were double covering Bruce and Holt

yeah, id def rather have boston back. The guy did so much for us while he was here.

Tell ya what, id rather have cris carter back, but ten years younger. and id rather have dan marino back to throw to our guys now.

Truth be told, if he bring in Hakim, he'll be used to his best potential. and if we bring in boston, if he manages to stay healthy and actually pass a stupid physical, he'll play to his best potential. either way, we're going to have a real great reciever corp with Linehan this year running things. No matter who comes back or joins us.

well in a recent article at the bottom it says this :

Noteworthy: Dolphins coach Nick Saban said Monday that if wide receiver David Boston, unlikely to land in San Francisco, wants to return to Miami, "we'd talk to him about it."... Saban said he can't meet with running back Ricky Williams yet because he's been told he won't be back in Florida until early May.... Saban declined to comment on the future of General Manager Rick Spielman.... Expect the Dolphins to take a look at wide receiver Az-Zahir Hakim, who was released by the Lions.

heres the Link for the whole article

Hakim fits our present needs (3rd WR) better than Boston. He also is healthier right now than Boston.

Boston, if reasonably healthy, would be a better replacement for either Booker or Chambers, should either one get injured.

I say sign them both and release Derrius Thompson.

couldnt agree more. Unless something changes for Thompson he is just a waste of a roster spot. Bring both these WRs in, Hakim can return punts and play the slot. Boston can challenge for the second spot across from Chambers. That would give us some explosiveness at WR.
