'Boldin's statistical history actually strongly leans toward his being a possession receiver. Over the past two years, he has seen only 66 vertical targets (a "vertical target" is defined as a ball thrown 11 or more yards downfield).

"That is a terribly low number, especially for a workhorse receiver. To put this into perspective, consider that out of the 47 receivers who have seen at least 150 total targets the past two years, only five have seen fewer than 66 vertical passes.

"Boldin's vertical pass percentage (the percentage of his overall targets that are "vertical") is even worse. Of that same group of 47, only Antwaan Randle El and Wes Welker had a lower vertical pass percentage than Boldin's 24.5 percent. His mark was even lower than the totals posted by noted possession specialists Bobby Wade (31.6 percent), T.J. Houshmandzadeh (32 percent) and Davone Bess (33 percent).

...

Bottom-line: The Dolphins need a playmaking receiver. Boldin isn't it.

....

If Chicago is serious about trading tight end Greg Olsen, the Dolphins should be at the front of the line. He turns 25 next week. He's played four years. He can be the kind if impact target the Dolphins keep looking for at receiver.

The question is, what do they want for him?

i would much rather have olsen than boldin... i feel weird saying that but its true... its easy to find a good wr... not that easy to find a tight end with olsens kidna talent.... i wonder what they want for him.. i imagine they want a 2nd round pick and i highly doubt that miami would wanna give that up... im sure with all the new aquisitions olsen would probably change his mind about wanting to leave

If this question were asked 4 days ago everyone would be saying who is Olsen. C'mon , only reason why Olsen makes sense now is because Boldin is off the market. I posted earlier that not signing Boldin , in my opinion was no big deal personally I did not like the fit here. But to say Olsen is the better guy is just not realistic. Olsen might turn out to be fine , but right now it appears we are settling.

Olsen isn't a WR. Yeah, he's kind of a deep threat but only by TE standards. I'd be glad to have him but lets not pretend that he solves any WR problem.
