Post what we need now...........a TE !
Hello,

first, I want to say I think we have a pretty nice offseason in exception of the JT story.....I would like to see us sign a long term contract with RB and davone Bess and all would be perfect.

But IMO we need to sign a good TE to be a really playoff contender, and I look at the greg olsen in chicago situation.

What do you think, could he be cut at june 1, and odes this guy could really help us iYO, else who could be cut at TE and be a solid signing IYO ?

thanks

I agree that a big playmaking TE would really make this offense something to be reckoned with, however, it's just not Bill Parcells-like to go out and get a pure pass catcher.

Mark Bavarro, Ben Coats, Jason Witten, and now Fasano; all these guys were blockers first, great pass catchers second. I think Fasano will have a much better season in 2010 with a guy like Marshall on the outside.

I would love Greg Olsen in Miami, but I don't see Chicago giving him up for cheap, especially considering he is the ONLY target that Cutler trusts and has on that team.

If Fasano gets hurt though, you are left with zero pass catching capability at TE, and that's what I'm a little worried about. Who knows, maybe John Nalbone will develope this year and make an impact?

I think we need a RB. Right now you have an unsigned Ronnie Brown coming off another season ending injury. An aging Ricky Williams, Patrick Cobbs coming off a major season ending injury, and an unproven Lex Hillard.

Fasano and Haynos are fine....but of course, we need a 90 on Madden at every position to be good.

I guess that means we're 19 players away still, seeing as we've only got 4...

Finding a guy who can block as well as catch good enough is a tuff task. But I think the guys we got can get it done with the extra help we have at (wr) now. The (te)'s wont be asked to catch as much now,so with the field spread open more the passes they do catch will seem like big ones. IMO

I'm satisfied with our te's we are a run first offense and they block pretty well. They are by all means upgradeable, but Imo if we bring in a top tier pass catching te it may do us more harm then good, unless we transform our offensive philosophy.

example: We get greg olsen he's a great te will create some mismatches on
defense might be able to sneak a few real big plays in now and then, but a player like that is going to want to play like 90% of the snaps. We are running the ball lets say 60-65% of the time he may end up more of a liability then an asset.

I thought for sure we might have at least taken a flyer on a late round pick for a TE.....or how about bringing in Tony Scheffler from Denver? I think they traded him for very little value and he is a quality pass-catching TE. I imagine the staff feels Fasano will return to his 2008 form....and he might with all the attention Marshall will garner!

There have been talks that Miami would bring back David Martin. He should be healthy in regards to his knee and he is certainly a TE that can stretch the seem. He was a great compliment to Fasano in 2008.

I like our tightends that we already have on the roster. Fasano will likely fix his dropsies this year and should return to form. Haynos is a beast and will continue to be a great run blocker for us. As far as having a second pass catcher I think we already have one in Kory Sperry. In the little game time he did get last year it looked to me like he has good hands. If we kept him on the roster as the third tightend he could wind up being a solid target and redzone threat in my opinion.

I would take David Martin over Kory Sperry in a heartbeat.

David Martin complemented Anthony Fasano very well in 2008, I would like to see that combo again if possible. I'm not sure that the Dolphins are as eager as we are to add him to the roster though. He's 31 and coming off a season where he was injured and cut from the team if my memory serves me correct. For those reasons I think the Dolphins would much rather continue with their youth movement and develop either Sperry or Nalbone.
Actually, I even think the Dolphins had to settle with Martin after he was cut because he was cut while on IR. Does anyone know if that's correct or not?
