Which former Dolphins player still in the NFL would you want back?

This evening, we are going to have a little fun. Looking around the NFL, there are plenty of former Miami Dolphins players on other teams. Maybe it is someone who just signed with a new team in free agency like linebacker Kyle Van Noy or quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Or maybe you are looking at someone who has been gone for a few years like running back Lamar Miller or defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Who is the right player for you to bring back to the Dolphins?

My choice is wide receiver Jarvis Landry. The Dolphins need to add a slot receiver. Landry, for as frustrating as his yards per reception average can be, would be an outstanding option for Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami offense. Landry was selected in the second round, the 63rd overall pick, in the 2014 NFL Draft. In four seasons with the Dolphins, Landry caught 400 passes for 4,038 yards, a 10.1 yards per reception average, with 22 touchdowns. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2015, 2016, and 2017 and led the league with 112 receptions in 2017.

After placing the franchise tag on Landry in 2018, Miami traded him to the Cleveland Browns for a fourth-round pick in 2018 and a seventh-round pick in 2019. With Cleveland, he has caught 236 passes for 2,990 yards, a 12.7 yards per reception average, with 13 touchdowns. He was selected to the 2018 and 2019 Pro Bowls.

Would you bring back Landry? Someone else?
