Donald Driver to Miami?

While the Dolphins didn't take a WR in the early rounds of  last weekends draft the position is now probably the #1 area in need of an upgrade and the weakest part of this team going into the 2012 season. The organization hasn't addressed the Brandon Marshall departure yet. Well, today Jacoby Jones was cut by Houston and Jabar Gaffney was let go by Washington and both should be on the Dolphins radar in the coming days and weeks. Another name to keep an eye on though according to James Walker of ESPN.com is Donald Driver who will need to re-do his deal in Green Bay or he most likely he will be released.  He came from the west coast offense and obviously has ties to Philbin.

Now, Driver is older and probably doesn't want to go to a bad team/rebuilding team. But he also wants one final pay day and if Miami offers enough money he would probably come to Miami. Driver isn't a long term answer at 37 years old, but for a 1-year, hold the fort, band-aid type guy he wouldn't be terrible.

The Dolphins had far too many holes to fill in one offseason and in one draft. WR is clearly the position that won't get seriously addressed this year. And that is fine, I mean this team was going to be weak somewhere and they (Ireland/Philbin) decided to let it be WR this year. So, bringing in a guy like Driver, Jones, or Gaffney on a 1 year deal wouldn't be awful and in fact would make a lot of sense. And then a year from now they can seriously address upgrading the WR position.
