Miami Dolphins: Piling on the Offense with Brandon Gibson

Brandon Gibson is a Miami Dolphin.  The 6'0", 205-pound receiver chose Miami over the New York Jets, St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans.

Last year with the Rams, Gibson caught 51 passes for 691 yards and 5 touchdowns. 

Gibson is only 25 years old but has four years of NFL experience.  He was drafted in the sixth round by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009.  Gibson has more career yards (2756) than any other receiver in Washington State history.

Miami is now loaded with weapons for Ryan Tannehill, a stark difference from last year.  The Dolphins' passing attack now features Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson, Dustin Keller and Davone Bess.

Will Bess be the odd man out?

Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald believes that Bess' cap number ($2.6 million) is cheap enough for him to be allowed to compete in training camp.

The other question is if Joe Philbin will open up the offense with four-receiver sets.  Regardless, Miami's offense is on track to be the best it has been since Dan Marino was at the helm for the Dolphins.

Miami is one offensive tackle away from being an elite offense.  Yeah, I said it.  ELITE.  Jake Long is still a possibility as the Rams have not been able to sign him to a contract.

Jeff Ireland isn't done either as the Palm Beach Post's Ben Volin tweeted that cornerback Brent Grimes is currently in Miami.

I argued that the draft needed to be icing on the cake for the Miami Dolphins and apparently Ireland had the same idea.
