So awesome….yet another top player that the Dolphins can’t retain.
The pattern here is alarming….and who gives a flip what picks we get if the team can not develop and retain talent.
I hate to lose a Pro Bowl player, too, but we did draft Igby due to X's injury past. The Dolphins are very high on Ibgy. X is 28, and I really wonder when his next big injury will be. Maybe cut our losses and get some value if we can if we have to while his value is at its highest. Let's not forget that his former agent drew up this contract which he happily signed two years ago. This probably would have been a problem with X anyways, but signing Byron Jones to what they did made him feel less valued.
Minkah wanted to play safety. I submit we would be better if he were still a Dolphin and playing safety.
I am 100% with you there. We had two safeties the last two years that pretty much played exclusively at safety. Why not Minkah? He was definitely not happy playing the slot as he was having a terrible camp. That was a bad decision, and the trade we made for him was LT Austin Jackson. Talentwise, you cannot compare the two as Minkah was excellent for us right out of the gate.
