    In reality, he will not be a major contributor this year. He tore his ACL late in the season and it takes a long time to fully recover without having limitations from the injury.

    Does this even surprise anybody? More failed picks from the previous regimes. Hopefully things are changing with the team, but I am more than a little skeptical that this is the case.

    Wasn't great to begin with.

    He won't be on the team next year.

    God bless Jerome Baker.

    The third round has not been kind to us.

    I'm good with PUP to get him fully healed and into the defense. Having a not-so-fully healed ACL and potential indecision in movement is a bad combo.

    I don’t consider him when I’m envisioning the team that will win the super bowl for us.

    I’m so ready to be one of the teams that cuts the cord too early instead of too late with injured players.

    I don't think Baker fits the D that the Dolphins are going to run now. Maybe he will be able to transcend this, but I have my doubts.

    I’ve forgotten all about him. Guess he’s the defense’s version of Devante Parker.

    Pray we don't have injuries in the back half because we are paper thin.

    Sounds bad but outside of x and minkah and wild card Jalen Davis I don’t think I’d really care. Someone would have to really surprise in preseason since that’s the only looks I get for me to.

    Davis could easily come to camp though and still not look ready for nfl contact. So that’s why it’s a wild card. I’m a buyer in his long term potential I’m not necessarily sold on it happens this year or if he doesn’t looks the part contact wise with Miami even.

    We already have 4 players on I.R. and OTAs aren't even finished yet. LOL. We have to have the most injury prone players on the planet.

    When you get players with injury history then they're bound to get hurt again. This is why I laugh every time somebody here says that we should bring Hayes back. Two years in a row on IR and yet people want him back. Some people just like more of the same crap every year.

    Riding the bench no matter how talented is riding the bench. Laundry was a great example of what I call health talented. The guy took a lickin and kept tickin. Talent comes in 3 forms, mental, health and physical talent. Too many fans and scouts overlook the first 2 and just focus on the last. I mentioned last year outside of Wilson who was a unknown that our wide receiver unit as a whole was a mash unit. Still have the same group and there is talent there but it a limping group.
