    Miami Herald: Dolphins show interest in Rams receiver Brandon Gibson

    Miami Dolphins show interest in Rams receiver Brandon Gibson
    BY ADAM H. BEASLEY

    Mike Wallace is the name on the lips of most every Dolphins fans (and for good reason).

    But general manger Jeff Ireland doesn’t have a one-track mind when it comes to free agent wide receivers.

    Over the weekend, the Dolphins also had contact with representatives of Rams receiver Brandon Gibson, one of the up-and-coming players at his position, The Miami Herald has learned.

    The talks are said to be serious. It is unclear how -- if at all -- a contract offer would affect the Dolphins’ pursuit of Mike Wallace, who is expected to command a multiyear contract paying $12 million a year when free agency opens Tuesday.

    Gibson wouldn’t come cheap either. The former sixth-round pick out of Washington State set career highs in receiving yards (691) and touchdowns (5) on 51 catches last year.

    While he isn’t a burner like Wallace, Gibson has a knack for getting open, and had just five drops in 75 passes thrown his way last year. Some believe that Gibson could earn a contract comparable to the one given to Brian Hartline last week (five years, $31 million).

    The Dolphins are also said to have interest in the Patriots’ Wes Welker, who began his career in Miami.

    Teams cannot formally extend contract offers to other teams’ free agents until Tuesday at 4 p.m., but are allowed to have communication with their agents.

    Well, Gibson did have his best catch last year in Miami, but if he gets $6M/year, that's insane.

    Any writer that calls Gibson "an up and coming WR" and says he has a knack for getting open probaby didn't watch any Rams games this year. Solid WR sure, but IMO he's reached his potential. It wasn't like he had a scrub QB throwing to him or was buried on the depth chart..

    How much would you pay a guy that had 102 catches for 1332 yards and 10 TDs? In this market sounds like 12 Mil to me. Gibby had half that and that puts him at 6 Mil. This is the way things will be after the new CBA.

    If we had a guy like Wallace on the roster Gibby would be nice two... the problem is we need a true one and Gibby will never be that and we have Givens and Quick.
