    This is what the dolphins always do. Don't resign Landry for 14mill a year and then sign two average players equaling 14 million. AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE? A guy who barely topped 500 yds receiving ever in his career and a 32 year old injury prone slot receiver. Why couldn't we resign Landry? I'm done with this team, bone head after bone head move. JUST REBUILD ALREADY blow it up ship off all our players over 28.

    Landry wants more than 14.

    Two receivers signed who know where to line up and play smart football. We needed that. Landry wanted $16 million.

    How are they equaling $14 million a year?

    We don't know the guaranteed money for any of these WRs so let's just take a step back and see how everything unfolds.

    Obviously, something wasn't working and Gase has no problem making changes. That's a good thing. Better to see a mistake and try and fix it than to just keep doing the same thing with the same crappy results.

    In the last two years we've identified a perennial 100 catch a year receiver and a dominant tailback as the problems. All while paying guys like Jay Cutler, Kenny Stills, Devante Parker, etc.

    The more I think about it the more I like it. I loved Landry but much like Ajayi he's one trick predictable pony. We saw what Drake and his versatility brought to the offense. Now we have versatile slots that hopefully know what they are doing. We should be able to hit some big plays by having guys who can do many things. Plus, it kills our reliance on always being in 11 personnel.

    Wow 100 catches a year. Man, Miami’s high powered offense is going to be bad without him. Oh wait.

    Also Miami’s offense got better when Ajayi was traded. More yards and game and points.

    adding Stills to any negative post shows pure ignorance.

    I don't we've paid Parker anything.

    So, because of past mistakes they should continue doing the same?

    Yes Miami got better after Ajayi was out. It wasn't because the RB play magically got awesome. Its because the coaching staff actually called an unpredictable game plan. I don't blame Ajayi for getting hit behind the line aoften and having no holes. I don't blame him for being ticked off that the coach brought in a QB whose poor play limited the entire offense for much of the season. I would have been too.

    Dolphins get Amendola and Wilson for essentially the APY that it would have taken to get Landry done long-term, and less than what Landry is getting under franchise tag.

    This is our MO when it comes to free agency. Sign mid to lower level bargain bin players who are often dented and old.

    Wilson is a fine signing, over priced, yes. But he could work well in the offense.

    Signing Amendola is a bit much though, a waste of resources. Sign a G or C

    Is no one else comprehending what I'm saying? We could have had Landry easily for the price of these two average players. One is old and injury prone, the other is unproven, They both play slot receiver!

    They are both much smarter football wise than Landry. That's a huge plus.

    And between them, Grant, and Parker, one of them will probably be sitting out most of the offensive snaps. :confused: This team kills me.

    When you put it like that....give me Landry back. But he hasn't actually signed a new deal yet, so lets wait and see what he signs for first

    We’re going to have the smartest team in football.

    During the week, they’re going to moonlight giving SAT prep courses to high school kids.

    Landry, Ajayi, and Suh were dumb. That’s why Suh used to hang out with Warren Buffet. Buffet loves dumb guys.

    I'm very frustrated with this team..our team is the definition of insanity..doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    Maybe. I thought that was Armando's own suggestion.

    I like the signing, but can he stay healthy? and how effective will he be? It's a short term solution at least if it happens

    ForksPhin I completely agree. All those guys were stupid...give me a break.

    You don't catch 400 passes in your first four seasons by being stupid. Most receptions first four years by any player EVER. He has football acumen.

    I was never big on the Suh signing but he is an extremely intelligent guy. He was talented but we just didn't have any good players other than Jones/Wake to help him on our dumpster fire of a defense.

    I love the Wilson signing. He can give you everything that Landry gave in the slot, while being faster and more explosive. We don't need 100+ receptions out of the slot; 45-55 is fine.

    I don't care for Amendola, but I don't have an issue with it either. Solid veteran and great locker room guy with Super Bowl experience. He's a professional. Maybe some of him can rub off on Parker. That alone is worth the deal.

    People expected us to rely on Grant and Carroo.... THAT would have been the wrong direction.

    Suh was a good player but he wasn't transformative. He could make big plays but didn't lock down the middle, he made negative plays because of his attitude, dirtiness, and because part of his production was based on timing the snap, which of course could be played with. Still, I'm not happy to see a good player released. The only thing I hate worse that seeing us release a high-priced but talented player is the moment when we signed them to a ludicrous contract in the first place.

    Based on their injury histories, I'm not sure that there is much that Parker doesn't already know that Amendola can teach him.

    He started 13 games last year and the year before. Then didn't miss a game the previous 4 years

    Why is everyone saying we could’ve had Landry for the price of the two replacement signings? Fact is Miami didn’t want Landry long term because he isn’t bought in.

    Fins need to scrub the roster and all of you need to stop merely looking at stats.

    The real question is, even if the receiver signings and Landry were to have cost the same, which would you rather have..?
