I think this is definitely a move in the right direction for the Dolphin's. This has got to be the most talented WR trio in the league. Ricky Who?
I doubt they'll keep all three for 2005.
As for fantasy, I think Booker's value takes the biggest hit because his reception total won't be at or near the century mark with Chambers on the team. Then again, his yards per average may increase dramatically now that he is out of the Bear's horrendous short gain passing system. Booker is no longer the steal of the draft, but I think he is still a good 8th round pickup.
Well, I don't expect Booker to get 90 receptions now. I don't think this improves Chambers at all. He'll just get less receptions now with possibly better yards per reception. You'll end up with more variance with him from game to game. Booker is good enough to be a #1 on teams and he'll definitely steal catches from Chambers. This is a mess...
They'll probably both end up with 70ish receptions.
This is all assuming that Ogun is not a greedy money whore that is content to whittle away his career on the bench because he can't buy 3 mansions instead of 2. These greedy players need to think back to when they were kids when they played the game for free. How can anyone turn down 5 million a year and a 4 million dollar bonus payment upfront to play a sport. Makes me want to see an NCAA program where all scholarship athletes have to work menial tasks to earn their free ride. Maybe then they will understand how fortunate they are to play in the NFL.
Don't be bitter. Let him live his life how he sees fit. That's the way the salary game is played. If you don't like it, don't follow it.
