I don’t like the revolving door and the center position, but at least we got someone to replace Ted Karras, who we should have kept. Anyway, Matt Skura is serviceable, but I don’t see him as a long-term answer. the Dolphins don’t see him long-term either, only giving him a one-year deal.
We went undrafted, so most of the NFL ignored him when he came our of college. And then there is this troubling tidbit: “Last season, Skura was benched after making three costly errors during an inclement weather Week 10 game against the New England Patriots in Foxborough. Skura reported abuse and threats directed at him and his family following the game…”
Can’t judge a man for one poor game, but still…
The other notable signing is Will Fuller, again to a one-year deal. As you know, I don’t get excited about WRs. I don’t like trading for them and I don’t like drafting them early. We know Fuller is fast, but is he that much better than Preston Williams or DeVante Parker? Granted, Parker and Williams are not speedsters, but speed doesn’t help you when your QB is being sacked and chased around. I don’t think the Dolphins lost games last year due to weak WRs. This is a nice signing, and I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see Fuller as any kind of game changer who instantly takes us to the next level.
Remember, we won TEN games last year and still didn’t make the playoffs. If that hold up, we will have to win 11 next year to make it. There is no wiggle room. We MUST improve.
