Where are the O/L in that league, that’s very important piece for the puzzle. Tannehill isn’t the answer to of our success, he need to be trade, ASAP


Oh Great! Just what Phins need another wr to go with 10 they already have! CAN HE BLOCK DLINEMAN? No! Can throw n catch without OLINEMAN!


It’s good to see the Dolphins going outside of the box to try to improve the team! GOOD JOB!!!(Razor58)

Although this kid is small in stature, (5’9″ 170lb) he is fearless as a WR, reminds me of Steve Smith w/ more speed. As a DB, he was always in the hip pocket of whoever he was covering, (9 int). Not afraid to make a tackle, Ala Vontae Davis. And last but not least, he is a very good kick/punt returner. Hopefully he’ll fair well in the “Big Boy League”!!

I agree this could be a great punt returner & also someone to replace CB Grimes & not spending to much $ to get it done.
