Today sealed it for me: I think he's a short-timer and it's okay. Doesn't make me dislike him... or this offense... but I do not see the two staying happily married after 2020, whatever it is.
At his "round table," he said what we all kinda know, that he wants MORE looks than the 133 he got last year. Stefanski's WR1 last season got like 91, had arguably the best year of his career, was on a winning team... and wanted out with the heat of a thousand suns.
OBJ joked that he wants those "2000 looks and 150 catches," but the point was made: He wants to be a true #1 where he gets the bulk of the looks. But that never, ever worked last year, with Baker leading the league in errant deep throws to a specific guy (OBJ)... which generally says they were forced. Especially when you consider that Odell was one of the least open WRs in the NFL, like 88th.
I believe there's a scenario where a bed of Baker, Landry, Hooper, Chubb, and maybe Hunt stays locked in while that deep threat-ey #1 guy (who gets fewer looks but great numbers in this offense) will need to be on a rookie deal, or be just a little less of a WR1 with a WR1 appetite.
More Ginn or Brown or Breshad Perriman, a designated big-play dude in the offense, but not a megastar All Pro who needs those looks... because it would break this offense. It wouldn't work the way it's supposed to work.
And damn does it work. Didn't register that Tannehill's re-blossoming was in this system as well. It makes a lot of money for QBs (Jimmy Handsome, Cousins)... and Baker's better than all of them.
We totally have the pick available next draft to go WR at 25 or wherever.
