May be getting cut from the Ravens.

I would probably prefer him over Jennings if the Dolphins don't end up signing Wallace.

Thoughts?

Apparently, Baltimore thinks 6M is too much for him. I'd offer him that if we miss out on Wallace and Jennings.

I love Boldin. Dude catches everything. But he is not very fast. We need speed at the WR position. So I can't see Ireland paying him 6mil to come play for Miami.

if we swing and miss on Jennings and Wallace he would be my 3rd option and then draft Austin in 1st round

Any way it goes, it's good for the Dolphins. Even if they're not interested in him at all, he helps drive down demand at the WR position. The more options that are available, the easier it will be to secure one of those options.

May thoughts are that the players names we are mentioning in terms of option a,b or c shouldn't be grouped like that. This is not a situation where if we don't ge wallace we take Jennings and if we don't take Jennings we take Boldin. They serve 3 completely different purposes in an offense.

Now that we have resigned Hartline and have plans on adding other WRs we don't need a player like Jennings. I'd even argue that we didn't need him in the 1st place. He's a sure handed route runner with average speed. Hartine is a sure handed route runner with average speed. It's just that Jennings had a better WR corp to open things up for him.

Same goes for Boldin. He's not an either or option for Wallace either. He serves a different purpose. We don't have a Boldin type right now and if we did we would still need someone to take the top off the defense.

This should help:

WR Type A = Jennings Hartline Patton Hopkins
WR Type B = Brandon Marshall, Boldin, Da'Rick Rogers, Rodney Smith
WR Type C = Wallace, Deshawn Jackson, Ryans Swope,
WR Type D = Tavon Austin, Marquis Goodwin,

It's like we are casting a movie ... or better yet look at the the WR corp as a team within a team.

I heard somewhere he reported if he is cut he is probably going to retire.

Smokescreen to try and get the Ravens to not ask for a pay cut

If so Bolden would be good, but Hartline, Bees, Wallace/Jennings and Bolden, to many. cant see it happening. You know what Bolden Hartline and Bees, I could see them doing that, and drafting a WR in first 2 rounds.

Yes, but outside of Wallace there's not much speed in FA this year, there's a ton of it in the draft though. Boldin may not be in the mold of Wallace but his hands are like a vacuum and he's a redzone target (as opposed to Hartline).

If we whiff on Wallace we'll need to find speed in the draft and instead sign a FA who is a good route runner and sure handed (Boldin, Jennings).

Ok, I've avoided this post long enough.

Love Bolden but we already have a top 5, younger & less expensive slot WR.
We need an outside deep threat & a STUD TE.

Not only that but I can't even see a a true/dedicated slot WR as we better staff our West Coast stable of WRs.

I can't even entertain the notion of acquiring yet another slot WR.

My two cents

Boldin to the 49ers for a 6th round pick. A steal.

Would you have given up a 5th? I would've.

What are we supposed to do with 2 slot WRs (Bess/Boldin) when what we lack is a deep passing gm ?

Thats like 10 Mill/yr in 1st downs between 2 players.

On the contrary acquiring Boldin is a regressive step considering we won't even target acquiring or featuring a
"slot WR" on the roster in a yr or 2.

If it aint a quick slant you are throwing those short ydg dump offs to the RB in the WC Off.

just sayin

If we don't land Wallace or Jennings, then getting Boldin for a 5th would've still been a great upgrade for this team. He may lack the elite deep speed, but he makes up for it in the ability to get open, his body control while going for the catch and his ability to outmuscle the defensive back for the ball. Getting a deep threat will not automatically fix this offense by itself. We could've benefited from a possession guy with his talent too.
