It has been well documented how important Brandon Marshall is to the Miami Dolphins. Marshall is the big physical receiver that Miami hasn't had since-well ever.
Consider the following quote by Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers about the former Denver Broncos wide receiver, known as "The Beast".
"Brandon Marshall is a defensive lineman playing wide receiver," Flowers said. "He wants to inflict punishment on you. He wants you to try to tackle him so he can shove you off of him and get more yards."[
Marshall's ability to beat press coverage, produce big plays, draw double teams, and provide a redzone target is unquestionnable.
For a developing quarterback like Chad Henne, having a go to receiver will serve as a big confidence boost and produce more successful results on the field.
Yet, despite all that Marshall brings to the Miami Dolphins, he is arguably not the most imporant addition to the roster during the 2010 offseason.
That destinction quite possibly belongs to new starting middle linebacker Karlos Montez Dansby.
What? A player who has never made the Pro Bowl and seems to be already forgotten by some fans is actually more important than a two-time Pro Bowler that has three straight seasons of 100-plus catches?
Yes, and here are five reasons why.
