How I See It: AFC East Stock Watch
» NFC Stock Watch: East | West | North | South » AFC: East | West | North | South
Ted Ginn, Dolphins receiver: It can be argued that if the Dolphins keep Ginn on the roster his stock will go up because of the Brandon Marshall acquisition. Marshall's presence prevents any other receiver from being double covered. Ginn can get behind defenses more easily. But the Marshall move also shows the Dolphins have given up on the idea Ginn, the ninth overall draft pick in 2007, can be a No. 1 receiver. He's skittish and drops too many passes. NFL.com's Jason La Canfora reported Tuesday the Dolphins were trying to unload Ginn.
Chad Henne, Dolphins quarterback: Henne finally got the big target every quarterback dreams about. Marshall is the type of receiver who makes a quarterback appear to be better than he is. Marshall attacks the ball, outmuscles defenders and is great on jump balls. Henne doesn't need to throw Marshall a pinpoint pass. Just get it close, and Marshall probably will snag it. Henne now has one of the NFL's best red-zone options at his disposal. Miami receivers scored six touchdowns last year. Marshall scored 10.
