Jared Cook's 2012 campaign came to a halt after a torn rotator cuff sidelined him in Week 14.
Cook's stat line wasn't all that impressive either with just 44 catches for 523 yards on the season.
Despite the numbers and the injury, Cook should be an excellent addition in 2013 for any team looking to upgrade at the tight end position.
By letting Anthony Fasano walk in free agency, the 'Phins will be looking for an athletic tight end at a reasonable price.
The Dolphins need more production from their tight end in the red zone, and Jared Cook wants to be a major contributor in a high-power offense.
This leads me to believe that this relationship may just work out well for both parties.
Greg Jennings will be one of the biggest names out on the free-agent market this offseason.
With their desperate desire for a true No. 1 receiver in Miami, Jennings would be the absolute perfect fit at the top of the Dolphins depth chart.
For starters, he and head coach Joe Philbin already have an excellent relationship after working together in Green Bay.
On top of that, Jennings is coming off of an injury-ridden season in which he played in only eight games, which may cast some doubt about the future of this soon to be 30-year-old receiver.
With other top free-agent wideouts Dwayne Bowe and Mike Wallace likely demanding more money anyway, Jennings is the obvious choice for the Dolphins.
Missed out on Cook?
Not to worry Dolphins fans, Dustin Keller is on the market too.
He’s already expressed an interest to test the free-agent market and avoid a franchise tag, and the currently unstable and unpredictable New York Jets may not be the most appealing home for the 28-year-old tight end.
After catching just 28 passes for 317 yards in a season where he was sidelined more often than not, Keller’s asking price will certainly drop this offseason.
The Atlanta Falcons were unable to come to terms on a new contract with Brent Grimes last offseason, opting instead to slap the franchise tag on their star cornerback.
Unfortunately for the Falcons, Grimes went down in Week 1 with an injured Achilles and was forced to miss the remainder of the season.
Grimes was finally starting to establish himself as a top cornerback in the league and he undoubtedly would have bolstered their secondary playing opposite Asante Samuel.
There is no doubt the injury has thrown up some red flags, especially after suffering a season-ending knee injury in 2011 as well.
Grimes is the type of guy the Dolphins will be looking to add to their secondary: a playmaker on defense who provides consistent coverage.
His recent string of injuries may just place him right in their price range too.
