Dolphins' struggling passing game catching criticism

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Miami Dolphins have one of the worst passing games in the NFL. Part of this problem lies with their wide receiver corps.

The Miami Dolphins have one of the worst wide receiver corps in the NFL. This hasn't helped rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill who has the lowest quarterback rating in the league (58.3).

After trading receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears over the offseason, the Dolphins failed to sign their targeted free agents, Pierre Garcon, Reggie Wayne and Laurent Robinson, and did not draft a wide receiver until the seventh round. The one major wide receiver the Dolphins did sign, Chad Johnson, was released from the team after getting into legal trouble.

The Dolphins have also tried working out players such as Jabar Gaffney, Donte Stallworth and Mike Sims-Walker and still have not signed anyone to bolster the wide receiver unit.

Tannehill has had 11 passes dropped this season, second most in the NFL. Wide receiver Anthony Armstrong was responsible for three of those against the Jets on Sunday.

Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is waiting for the next wide receiver weapons to step up and become factors in the passing game in Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
