Giants at Dolphins: Which New York player would you steal for Miami's roster?

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins will host the New York Giants on Monday Night Football this week. If you could snag one Giants player to put on the Dolphins' roster, who would it be?

This week's "who would you steal" post, asking which New York Giants player you would steal to bring to the Miami Dolphins' roster, may be an overwhelming answer for one player. Before we get there, the rules of the game are, you can steal any one player, with an explanation of why you took that player, but he has to be on the opponent's 53-man roster. For the Giants, that means that if you need a little salsa in your life, you're out of luck as Victor Cruz is on injured reserve.

It does mean you could do something like steal Orleans Darkwa, who spent time on the Dolphins' active roster and practice squad in 2014 before being poached by the Giants in December.

Of course, that is not who would you pick - but maybe you really liked Darkwa and want him back in Miami. The player I think all of us are going to select is, of course, wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. Beckham, the 12th overall pick last year by the Giants, has exploded in his first two seasons in the NFL. He is currently fourth in the league in receiving yards with 1,154, tied for sixth in receptions with 78,  tied for eighth in targets with 115, and he is tied for third in receiving touchdowns with 10. Beckham is averaging nearly 100 yards per game receiving this year.

It would also re-unite Beckham with his college teammate and a man who he describes as his brother, Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry. Landry is actually tied with Beckham in receptions with 78 this year, doing so on 99 targets, with 821 yards receiving, and four touchdowns. An LSU wide receiver corps with Beckham and Landry would be dominant.

Do you agree with the Beckham pick, or are you looking somewhere else? Let us know in the poll and comments below.
