Now that the Minnesota Vikings reportedly have made an offer, the Dolphins now find themselves at the plate and must decide what to do.
The Vikings were believed to be ready to offer Gadsden a three-year deal worth about $3 million, and Gadsden has said he would give the Dolphins the opportunity to match any offer he received.
Here's the good news: The Dolphins might not even have to match to lure Gadsden back. There are two big factors at play here.
One is the fact that Gadsden likes playing in Miami and would like to return, if possible. Another is the fact that Minnesota is looking at Gadsden as a third receiver, whereas the Dolphins could offer him a starting job.
Now, the Dolphins will have to be competitive in their offer to Gadsden, but it probably won't have to be dollar for dollar with what Minnesota is offering.
The Dolphins have often said that keeping their core was important to them. Here's their chance to prove it.
