Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson Possibly On The Trading Block?

 

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, there are some “NFL people” who believe Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson could be on the trading block now that they have Jarvis Landry.

Jackson mentions that the Dolphins top-four receivers are Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Gibson and Landry as of now.

Miami has Gibson listed ahead of Landry on their most recent depth chart, but Landry has shown that he can contribute as a kick returner.

Gibson, 27, still has two years remaining on his three-year, $9.755 million contract that included $3.75 million guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $2.7 million for the upcoming season as well as another $3.225 million in 2015.

The Dolphins aren’t hurting for cap space given that they currently have $11.947 million to work with, so it’s doubtful they would cut Gibson loose to create more room, but fielding offers from a receiver-needy team isn’t all that far fetched of an idea.

Last year, Gibson appeared in seven games and caught 30 passes for 326 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
