Greg Jennings

Greg Jennings 


Sign him to Top 5 money. Draft a pair, sign hartline to # 2 money or left him walk/

This is the year of the playmaker!

I think the Dolphins should sign Jennings but he's not worth top 5 money 6.5 - 7 million should do it. He makes 3.885 mil/yr now

RE: Greg Jennings 


Totally agree however...he is a proffesional and a great wr. Anquan Boldin is not worth in production what the Ravens pay him but he is a clutch player and they would not be where they are without him. I wouldn't mind it if we had to break him off a little more than he is worth to get him here.

And then draft DeAndre Hopkins in the 1st round.

Hopkins would definitely be a reach at 12, but if we can't trade down in the 1st I'm ok taking him that high although better players may be available at other positions.
Somebody gave me a Hickey.

Re: Greg Jennings 


I'd rather resign Hartline and then spend 2 picks on WR's in the draft, with one of those picks being in the 1st 2nd rounds.  Add a TE in the 2nd or 3rd and I think we could be in good shape.

Think we need to resign Hartline sign Jennings then find a way to get the top WR and TE in the draft. These playoff teams our scoring 30+ just to try to stay competitive.

Hopkins and Eifert would be nice.

You probably could pickup Hopkins in the 2nd round, will know more after the combine.

I do like the idea of signing a top FA WR but reading this article did make me think.

Wasn't there something in NE game about them being the 3rd highest scoring team ever?  They were at something near 34 ppg I thought.  

I'm against the idea of signing one of the big 3 WRs.  I think they want much more money than they're worth.  I'd rather invest that in a pass rush DE FA and use the draft to get younger WRs for the next 5 years.

Disagree. WR's take time to develop. While Hartline was a surprise, we need a WR that is going to command attention and help the young draftees learn the offense. Jennings is the man for the job. He also doesn't seen to have the Diva like tendencies of Brandon Marshall, Chad Johnson, etc.

Besides signing Jennings frees up the use of one pick to get your pass rusher.

This is true.  Pass rushers are more immediately effective whereas WRs tend to be 2-3 years to hit prime.   I'd agree with you if I thought we were close to being a real contender of a team.  I think we can become a playoff team that isn't expected to make it to the AFC championship.  

Which is why I'd rather use the draft to get a young WR, let him develop for a year, then have a big impact in 2014 a guy like Greg Jennings is 31 years old and missing a quarter of a season being injured.

RE: Greg Jennings 


Greg Jennings is 29, Philbin knows him really well and he would fit the system we run so he would have an immediate impact. DE WR both would be expensive in FA. Players are more likely to sign with a new team if friendly familiar faces are around... I would give him good money but I would still back end a good bit on his contract just incase there was a drop off in performance.

RE: Greg Jennings 


Signing Jennings is huge for us as it opens our draft to DE, CB or OL in rounds 1 and 2. We can still go WR again in round 3 with the depth available.

RE: Greg Jennings 


Why oh why do people constantly believe it takes a WR 2 to 3 years to develop into a playmaker?  Yes, SOME Wr's need that time to develop, but many many others contribute right away.  Depends on the player and their skill set and intelligence.  How about this idea?  1 FA WR (My hope is Dwayne Bowe), 1 WR in the draft, 1 playmaking TE in the draft, and re-sign Hartline.  I wouldn't mind going with 2 WR in the first 5 picks along with a FA WR.  Need playmakers on this team on the outside.  Of the first 5 picks I want to see:

2 WR
1 TE
1 CB
1 LT/RT

In FA (Including our guys):

Re-sign Hartline
Re-sign Smith (Unless stupid asking price)
1 Premium WR
1 CB
1 Safety
Depth at LB/DE/O-Line

FYP biggrin

Id also like to add it that we re-sign Clemons but other than that, this is EXACTLY what the Dolphins should be doing this offseason.

I'd be really surprised if he was that active in FA.  I'd be elated if he even went over 1 quality starter at any of those 3 positions(does not include resignings).

Think Bowe and Wallace will be hit with the franchise tag. Philbin knows Jennings and will know if he is worth the money he is asking for.

My only diff would be i think we draft G and RT instead of two WR.  If we signed one of the big 3 WR's i think we only draft 1 WR in the 1st five picks.  Our RT and RG situation needs to be fixed unless they feel Jerry can play RT well.
