MY TAKE: Re-signing Fasano to serve as the starting H-back, Miami's second tight end, should be a priority considering he's scored 23 touchdowns the past five seasons. That's my opinion based on how he played the H-back position in the final month of the year, once Charles Clay was sidelined by his knee injury. Fasano's protection was amazing, and it kept Ryan Tannehill's pocket clean. And he was a better option coming out the backfield as a receiver than he was working off the line of scrimmage.

It is clear to everyone that Fasano, who will turn 29 in April, has lost some speed, which hinders his ability to create separation from linebackers. However, he's still one of the NFL's best in-line blocking tight ends, and that has value. Because of that skill Fasano will probably have a role in the NFL for the next four to five seasons.

Pair him with a legit seam threat like Dustin Keller and that unit could blossom just like Fasano did when he played alongside David Martin, setting franchise records for the position in 2008. Keep in mind that Fasano was the H-back in that relationship.

That's why I say re-signing Fasano should be a priority for the Dolphins, but he'd need to make half of the $2.9 million he earned annually the past three seasons. But I expect he'll sign elsewhere if some team, like the Falcons, call on him to remain a starter.

If the intent is to line Fasano up as the number 2 tight end and predominately block, absolutely sign him for the right money. Getting that seam threat tight end will be key and I keep hoping Miami drafts the kid from Notre Dame or Stanford.

It would drive a lot of fans nuts, and someone else on these boards already mentioned it, but it would be a classic Ireland move to trade back with the Bears to like the 20th pick (Bears targeting top o-line guy) and take either Ertz or Eifert. With that said, I don't think it happens.

If Ireland senses grabbing a WR in FA will prove to be too costly then I could see a full court press on either Keller or Davis (who is now hitting FA).
