Dolphins don't sound interested in Marshall or Owens
Quick, which of the following two stat lines would you rather have?
1. 164 receptions, 1,764 yards, 3 touchdowns
2. 101 receptions, 1,120 yards, 10 touchdowns
If you went with option No. 1, you’ve just won the Miami Dolphins’ 2009 trio of Davone Bess, Ted Ginn and Greg Camarillo.
If you picked option No. 2, you got the 2009 edition of Brandon Marshall.
Pointless tests aside, Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano told the media assembled at the owners meetings in Orlando, Fla recently that he’s not sure if either Marshall or free agent wideout Terrell Owens would be a good fit for his team, per Jason La Canfora of NFL.com.
“I don’t know if they make sense for our ball club, one way or the other,” Sparano said Tuesday morning. “I’m happy with the group of players I have right now.”
Speculation has been mounting that the Dolphins are in the market for a big-play wide receiver that can help the team in the red zone.
While Marshall or Owens may not be the answer, many believe Miami may use the 12th overall pick in April’s draft to address the problem.
After all, Bess, Camarillo and Ginn have a combined 12 receiving touchdowns in nine years between them.
Meanwhile, Marshall has scored 23 touchdowns over the last three years.
