Which Dolphin would you add to the Buccaneers?

New, comments

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night, so we ask you this weekly question: which player from the opposing team would you add to the Bucs?

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Ryan Tannehill

Would you like to have a young, strong-armed, mobile, talented quarterback? I would. Tannehill isn't a great quarterback and he needs to continue to develop, but his future appears to be bright. He's certainly better than Mike Glennon, at least right at this moment. We'll see if that continues to be the case in the future -- but I'd still add Tannehill to the Bucs if I could.

Cameron Wake

Cameron Wake is one the best edge rushers in the NFL. The Bucs, meanwhile, don't have a single edge rusher with more than three sacks on the year. Addressing that problem with an All-Pro defensive end/linebacker would seem to be a good idea.

This is another good time to remind people that the entire NFL except the Miami Dolphins missed out on Cameron Wake. He went undrafted out of Penn State in 2005, then spent three years essentially out of the NFL before signing with the BC Lions in 2007. He didn't get to the NFL until 2009, but he has 48.5 sacks since then. Oops?

Brent Grimes

The Buccaneers could have signed Brent Grimes this offseason, but decided to go after Darrelle Revis instead. That worked out, and Grimes was coming off a torn Achilles which made him a major risk. But Grimes has done very well in Miami so far, notching two interceptions and seven passes defensed in eight games this year. He had a nifty 94-yard interception return last week.

Pairing Grimes and Revis would be nice, as long as the Bucs could remember to play man coverage.

Mike Wallace

Because you can't ever have enough deep threats. Wallace isn't a very versatile receiver, and he won't put up massive numbers, but his speed has an extraordinary effect on an opposing secondary. The safeties simply have to play deeper, which helps out every other part of your offense. Adding that to the Bucs would be fun, although Mike Glennon had better start working on that deep ball.

So, which Dolphin would you add to the Buccaneers?
