Dolphins undergo “paradigm shift” in free agency
If this article approach has any merit, besides getting a guy like Wallace and the true number one receiver, I would hope Miami would also consider Danny Amendola as a poor boy version and younger clone of Wes Welker. I know Amendola has had injury problems the past two years, but he probably won't cost a ton and all this kid does is get open and catch the ball & he is good return guy too. He creates a lot of problems underneath against linebackers and IMO he is better than Bess and even with Bess on the team, Miami can certainly not hurt with being loaded up on good receivers for once.PFT Article:
As the Dolphins chase receiver Mike Wallace — a fairly obvious target for a team that doesn’t have enough of them in its passing game — he may not be the only guy the Fins pursue, or catch.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald explains that the Dolphins are in the midst of a free agency “paradigm shift,” which will cause them to explore players they previously would have ignored.
Salguero points to the fact that the Dolphins are interested in 37-year-old defensive back Charles Woodson and could be ready to make a run at 32-year-old receiver Wes Welker. In the past, the Dolphins wouldn’t have been able to get past the advanced age of free agents.
But why the change? Salguero doesn’t offer a specific reason, but here’s the most likely reality. Apart from the boost that big names can bring to a stadium with large, glaring patches of orange emptiness, the Dolphins eventually need to persuade a skeptical electorate to show up and vote “yes” for the use of public money to renovate SunLife Stadium.
What better way to do that than to spend a bunch of money on big-name players and hope this will create the kind of excitement that not only sells tickets but also buys votes?http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... ee-agency/
