Miami Dolphins' Top Six Offseason Options at WR
Let's face it Dolphin fans: It is unacceptable.
In 45 years of Miami Dolphins football, there have only been five seasons where a receiver not named Mark Duper of Mark Clayton has recorded over 1000 yards receiving, and just once since 1999.
It is time to get a receiver with the ability to catch.
It is time to get a receiver to complement the rest of the team.
Here are six receivers that could end up with the Dolphins after the offseason.
No. 6—Brandon Marshall
The reason that Brandon Marshall is on this list is because he is a great receiver, and people hope that he ends up on their respective teams.
But he is number six, because in all likelihood he will stay with the Broncos.
But not before a lot of crying. Obviously.
No. 5—Terrell Owens
T.O. has basically said that he will be leaving the Bills.
So, the Dolphins are halfway there; just have to persuade him to come to Miami.
But the Bengals seem like a better option, to team TO with Chad Ochocinco.
He probably will not come to the 'Fins, but a man can dream. Can't he?
No. 4—Jordan Shipley
This guy is amazing.
The Miami Dolphins pick 11th in the second round, ninth in the third round, and according to cbs.sportsline.com, Jordan Shipley is the eighth best receiver and ranked 69th overall. They also project him going in the second or third round.
Perfect for a team in need of a receiver, and for a team that let go of Wes Welker, whose style is often compared to Shipley's style.
No. 3—Donte' Stallworth
Just reinstated by the league, and cut by the Browns, Stallworth is looking for a job.
Why not the Dolphins?
He could be a number one receiver right away.
His speed, 4.29 40 yard dash, would be good for the young gunslinger Chad Henne.
No. 2—Dez Bryant
He is rated as one of the top 10 players in the draft, and the number one receiver.
Due to the fact that the teams ahead of Miami do not need receivers, Dez could slip to number 12.
His 4.53 approximate 40 yard dash speed can only be beneficial for his draft status.
Hopefully the Dolphins will pick Earl Thomas, and rely on number one as their top receiver.
And number one is.....
Anquan Boldin is reportedly being shopped to the Dolphins, as long as the Dolphins fork up enough draft picks/players for him.
He is often overshadowed due to his superior, Larry Fitzgerald.
He is no backup. He deserves to be a starter.
He is averaging 80 ypg for his career. In his two full seasons he eclipsed 1200 yards.
Welcome back to Florida, Anquan. Hopefully.
