The Miami Dolphins have some money available this off-season, north of $40 million, and a lot of it is sure to be spent on at least one wide receiver. Their own free-agent, Brian Hartline, may cost a pretty penny to re-sign, but we may see Miami re-up with him and still try to land another top-tier wide receiver. I would have to think that Dwayne Bowe will be on Miami’s radar, and to be honest several other teams too, but with money to spend, the likely scenario is that Miami will look to surround Ryan Tannehill with weapons.
Bowe has not been a scorer for a few seasons, but I certainly still believe in his ability to be a play maker, who can make physical catches in traffic, and snatch balls out of the air. At 6’2″ 225 pounds he has great size, and he has a history of producing at a legit level. A combination of Tannehill-to-Bowe intrigues me as Bowe seems like he has a skill-set that would sync with Tanny. BFF? I think it could work.
The position of wide receiver is deep as studs like Greg Jennings and Mike Wallace are available (plus Hartline coming off 1,000+ season and Wes Welker) but Miami has money to spend and they gave a ton of guys a chance to earn playing time at that position in 2012, only to be disappointed regularly. I would love to see Wallace added by Miami, and Bowe /Jennings are 2 and 2a for me. Some teams will lose out on Wallace and Jennings and feel like Bowe is plan C, but I like him as a great option/target for Tannehill going forward.
I would think that Andy Reid would want to re-up with Bowe, but if he decides to part ways with the Kansas City Chiefs then surely the Dolphins will be in pursuit.
