While most Miami Dolphins fans are hoping that Chad Ochocinco may be the man to revitalize their offensive unit this season, the Fins saviour may actually emerge from an altogether less likely place.
Rookie wide receiver Kashif Montgomery has been on the radar of many NFL teams ever since he first led the state of Rhode Island in scoring (almost doubling the points total of his nearest rival) during his fledgling years in competitive football.
Yet when it seemed as if the wideout had the whole football world at his jet-heeled feet, Montgomery suddenly disappeared off the map after stepping away from the game in order to take care of his young family.
Now aged 24, Montgomery is ready to refocus all of his attention on carving out a career in the NFL, and a source close to the situation states that the Dolphins are currently leading the race to secure his signature ahead of next season.
Receivers coach Ken O'Keefe is understood to believe that Montgomery's ability to beat defenders with his upper-body strength while at the same time using his explosive speed to shake off coverage may make him the go-to-guy that the franchise has so desperately needed for so long.
And it is this ability to get open - coupled with the potential to break out as a deep threat - that has once again alerted scouts all over the country to his availability, meaning that if the Fins are to land his talents then they will have to do so in the face of stiff interest from several other teams including divisional rivals Buffalo.
