  • Swap TE's Cameron for Miller

    By releasing TE Jordan Cameron we can save $7.5M. I would replace him by signing UFA Zach Miller. He played for the Bears last year under our new HC Adam Gase. His stats were better than Cameron's last year and he played on a 1 year deal for only $660K.

    2015 stats

    Jordan Cameron - 35 receptions 386 yards 3 TD's

    Zach Miller - 34 receptions 429 yards 5 TD's.

    So I would release Cameron and save $7.5M in cap space and sign Miller to another 1 year deal for about $800K. Miller might like to come to the Dolphins since he performed well in Gase's offense last year. So by swapping those TE's we can save about $6.7M and get equal or better production.

    I have to disagree with you, my friend. I don't think it's fair to compare stats of Cameron since Tannehill and the OC's never had Cameron in the playbook. Jordan Cameron is an elite Tight End and IF Tannehill ever decided to spread the ball around more and rely more on his tight end, like every other quarterback like Tannehill does, Dolphins fans would see a special player and an All Pro tight end. If Cameron played for the Bears last season he would have put up some Pro Bowl numbers, and Cutler isn't that great of a QB either.

      The issue isn't that Tannehill won't spread the ball around - it's that our NOline was so inept, he often had to stay in to protect (and split more time with Sims when he was healthy).

      Jarvis Landry's 165 TARGETS suggests that Tannehill doesn't spread the ball around enough. Cameron only had about 70 targets. Tannehill does looks Landry's way, WAY too often. Tannehill has found his safety net and usually when a QB likes to play the dink and dunk game their tight end is heavily involved in that game. Tannehill needs to make better use of his big tight end and look his way more often rather then key in on one player most of the game. IF this front office does something that previous regimes have refused to do, like, build a decent offensive line, then MAYBE all these problems go away..................or maybe they will just expose other issues :-O
