OBJ and AB together….. On the same team…. Be careful what you wish for.
OBJ will cost $14.5 mil. Godwin would cost slightly more than that, but with a new contract you could work it so the cap hit isn’t too terrible in the first year. And you’d have to give up a draft pick for OBJ. Godwin is high character. He blocks. He doesn’t complain. If you can’t keep Godwin’s salary, then it makes no sense to bring in another high salary guy.
CG irked me with the drops in the playoffs but I wouldn’t swap him for OBJ for shit. CG is younger, would still be cheaper and doesn’t have the history of leg injuries that OBJ does. Plus CG’s role in the blocking game can’t be overlooked. OBJ ain’t doing that for us.
Per Cameron Wolf with ESPN: “Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: If he’s available, he should be the Dolphins’ No.1 target, even at $20 million per year as a speedy, shifty, versatile playmaker who stresses a defense deep and can take a slant to the end zone from 80 yards out.”
$20 million per year? Would be hard to compete with that, even with a hometown discount.
Not only is Godwin the #1 blocking WR in the league, he was #1 in catch % for WRs with 70+ targets. And this was a bad year for him because he had a concussion, pulled hamstring and surgery to repair a broken finger, all in the first 7 weeks of the year.
I do like godwin, think he gets franchised for 15m or whatever which is rough considering the 13-18m in definite cap space currently, but I also don’t think his production with Brady in this offense is worth that kind of money, ball gets spread around too much.
