The Daily Take will be posted every weekday at 3 p.m. and will offer our opinion on a pertinent topic involving the Dolphins. Today we look at the significance of the signing of Terrell Buckley.

Let us start by saying that Jamar Fletcher has taken more criticism than deserved since the end of last season. But let's also add that the Dolphins needed to upgrade the third cornerback spot.

And that's just what they did with the signing of Terrell Buckley.

Buckley is pretty much the same type of player he was during his first stint with the Dolphins, except that now he will accept playing behind Sam Madison and Patrick Surtain with no problem.

On the field, Buckley is a gambling cornerback who will get beat at times. Dolphins fans need to accept that. The big difference between Buckley and Fletcher is that Buckley will come up with interceptions.

Always has, always will.

He has 13 picks in the last three seasons and 45 in his 11-year career. That was one thing that was badly missing from the Dolphins secondary last season, and the addition of Buckley will help in that department.

And considering he reportedly only signed for the veteran minimum, that was a great move for the Dolphins in many different ways.
