Post Draft options are abundant in Miami Dolphins' receiver searc

Determined to find another playmaker, the Dolphins have cast a wide net in their receiver search. Some buzz on Miami's draft options:

• Besides bringing in Dez Bryant, Miami has shown interest in Notre Dame's Golden Tate; had receivers coach Karl Dorrell work out Arrelious Benn in Illinois; and had private workouts with LSU's Brandon LaFell, Ohio's Taylor Price and Syracuse's Mike Williams.

Regarding Bryant, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said Bill Parcells ``loves being a mentor,'' and Parcells is ``very close'' with Bryant's agent, Eugene Parker. But ``I just don't know if he'll pull the trigger'' on Bryant, Mortensen said. He added that Bryant's agents hired a life-skills coach for him and that Oklahoma State coaches have said Bryant is not a character problem but is gullible and had time-management issues.

One scout for a team picking after Miami, hoping Bryant falls, indicated criticism has been overstated -- Bryant never was arrested -- and that his on-field performance speaks for itself. Oklahoma State has denied a report that Bryant showed up 30 minutes before a game. Though several mock drafts (including Mel Kiper's) have him going 11th, some believe he could fall.

...


• In Miami's search for a nose tackle, keep an eye on East Carolina's 328-pound Linval Joseph, a potential third-rounder who was summoned to Dolphins headquarters last week. Tennessee's Dan Williams, who hasn't visited the Dolphins, remains an option at No. 12.

• Jason Taylor, preferring to remain a Dolphin, is content to wait until May or June to resolve his future, barring an extraordinary offer from a contender. The Taylor camp has been left with the impression the Dolphins still will consider re-signing him. A lot will depend on the draft

Miami should resign JT either way. How is this even up for discussion in that building? Sign the man to another 1 year deal...
