I think everyone can agree on one thing, the Julius Thomas experiment was an epic fail. The Dolphins expected Thomas to regain his 2013-2015 form where he caught 24 touchdowns in 2 seasons. Thomas did look anywhere near that form, only catching three touchdowns and 314 yards. Thomas looked slow, and could not gain any separation on routes, especially in the red zone. Miami will be in the market for a new tight end and here are some potential targets.
Free Agent class has guys that can come in start right away, but their price tag won’t be cheap. Options like Jimmy Graham, Trey Burton, Austin Seferain-Jenkins and Tyler Eifert.
Jimmy Graham would be an instant upgrade and give Tannehill a nice big athletic target to throw to. Graham was considered the best tight end in the league with Gronkowski during his stint with the Saints. Graham had over 2,000 yards and 26 touchdowns in his last two season with the Saints. Graham has struggled a little with Seattle but came around strong these past two seasons, with 1,400 yards and 16 touchdowns. It will cost a pretty penny to bring Graham to Miami.
Trey Burton is a young and upcoming tight end. He only caught 23 passes this season and 14 went for first downs, five went for touchdowns. He brings playmaking ability to the position that really lacked it in 2017. Burton will cost some money but not as much as Graham.
Austin Seferain-Jenkins and Tyler Eifert are the cheaper options but they do present the most risk. Eifert as we know has had problems staying healthy in the past. He has played a total of 10 games in the past two seasons. When healthy Eifert has shown he can be a playmaker. In 2015, when Eifert played in 13 games, he caught 52 passes for 615 yards, and 13 touchdowns. Seferain-Jenkins is a guy who you’re bettong can play at a higher level than he has. He had a career best 357 yards last year. Seferain-Jenkins is a freak athlete who has yet reach his potential, and could be a cheap option.
Miami could also look the draft to address the tight end position. Oklahoma tight end Mark Andrews and South Dakota State’s Dallas Goedart are two intriguing options but unless they fall to 2nd round unlikely they end up in Miami.
The tight ends in the draft include Hayden Hurst (South Carolina), Jaylen Samuels(NC State), Mike Geisicki(Penn State), and Troy Fumagalli(Wisconsin)
Odell Beckham Jr. Is Heading To Cleveland
On March 12, 2019, superstar wide-receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been traded to the Cleveland Browns. Odell Beckham Jr. was traded to Cleveland for a first–round pick, a third-round pick and S Jabril Peppers. The former New York Giant made his mark in the league after making “the catch” in 2014 against the Dallis Cowboys. Beckham became a breakout star after his rookie season.
Fans and analysts are still shocked by the breaking news. Dave Gettleman’s decision to trade Odell Beckham Jr. hit fans differently especially since it was said “we didn’t sign Odell to trade him”. This was also shocking after Beckhman signed a $95 million contract with $65 million guaranteed in August of 2018. This news broke the hearts of New York Giant fans, however brought joy to the city of Cleveland.
