I'm trying to get over this whole fiasco, but it is hard to do when the one who had the plan to screw it up is still making the decisions. It makes me wonder where Kenyan Drake will be playing in 2020.

Even though the Dolphins swore all along they wanted Landry, even though Landry swore he wanted to be here, and even though Landry never held out for even one optional practice when others would have, the way this played out couldn’t have been more laughably predictable if it were splashed across three billboards outside Davie.

This is a franchise for which there are two inalienable truths:

1. Its draft record is poor.

2. Its record of retaining draftees who outperform their draft position is worse.

In 2012, the Dolphins hit in Rounds 3 (Olivier Vernon), 4 (Lamar Miller) and 7 (Rishard Matthews). Not one received his lucrative second NFL contract from the Dolphins. Neither, for that matter, did Charles Clay, a sixth-rounder in 2011.

(Reminder: We are talking about the Dolphins here, not the Marlins.)

It never even reached a boiling point with Jay Ajayi, a fifth-rounder who like Landry was a recent team MVP. The Dolphins weren’t thrilled with his attitude, but his impending pricetag hastened his trade to Philadelphia.

And you wonder where this team’s offensive playmakers are? Simple. Everywhere else.

Let’s not forget the case of Vontae Davis, the first-rounder in 2009 who developed into a Pro Bowl cornerback. For Indianapolis, after Joe Philbin showed him the door.

Credit the Dolphins for extending Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones (fifth round, 2010), but why are such transactions the exception? Why perennially procrastinate, the NFL equivalent of starting your taxes the evening of April 15?

In 2013, the Dolphins took a stab at a home-run hitter by signing Wallace, but like so many splashy free-agent signings (which Mike Tannenbaum adores), the love affair was fleeting. Wallace was given a five-year contract averaging $12 million per year, which swallowed 9.75 percent of that season’s salary cap. If Landry could have been signed for about $14 million per, he’d represent 7.86 percent of next season’s cap.
