From a Dolphins perspective--

The 67-yarder to Clay was a never-before-seen God throw from Tannehill. There's no telling if he did that on purpose, but there's no prior evidence that he would make a throw that brilliant. Plus, the safety broke AFTER he was midway through his throwing motion. Unlikely that he threw it back shoulder on purpose.

And from my experience, it's never fair to blame a cornerback for not playing press-man. Always the play call. Toler playing off-man certainly wasn't his decision, he had to keep position when Wallace went after him.

@DolfanDaniel Exactly, let them play it out a little. If no one emerges as a viable option for depth or further injuries take place, there's a long list of stopgaps that can be brought in and eased into the system. And it's nice to have a player who's actually produced at some point behind the starters, but truth is these players (like Robinson) have been worked out by other teams and are nothing more than in-case-of-emergency options. I'd rather have a young, developing special teamer than a more expensive worn-down veteran, personally.

@DolfanDaniel It just doesn't make sense to me. Let Matthews or McNutt win the spot and play special teams and hopefully develop. How does a temporary, 'proven' veteran help you as a bench player?

Look at other teams... who is the Packers WR4? Charles Johnson or Jarrett Boykin. The Falcons? Kevin Cone or James Rodgers. Broncos? Tavarres King or Greg Orton. All are 'unproven', but WR4 just isn't a vital role. Like I said, this player rarely contributes anything of significance anyway.

It's not a spot to invest in or give to a non-special teams contributing veteran. In my opinion.

There's some panic over Armon Binns' injury, and some talk about Ireland needing to bring in a name to replace/augment receiver depth. Here's a few names: Joe Morgan, Dwayne Harris, Matt Willis, Ryan Broyles and a 33-year old Deion Branch. Those are the No. 4 wide receivers on the top-five passing teams in the NFL last year. They averaged 15 receptions on the season.

This isn't to compare the Dolphins to those offenses in any way. The point just goes to illustrate the impact of a fourth receiver. Barring injury to one of the top three, signing Robinson or Breaston shouldn't be considered. Especially when you consider who the true third, fourth and fifth options will be -- Dustin Keller, Charles Clay, Dion Sims, Lamar Miller and various other non-WR players.
