Patriots placed WR Brandon Gibson on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.
The injury must have been suffered in New England's second preseason game. Gibson was by most accounts having a solid camp, but also has a history of knee injuries. This in part necessitated the Patriots' signing of Reggie Wayne. Aug 24 - 4:42 PM

Patriots signed WR Brandon Gibson to a one-year, $825,000 contract.

This appears to be a flier deal on a player who was a shell of his former self following a 2013 patellar tendon tear. Gibson, 27, spent 2014 as Miami's No. 4 receiver behind Mike Wallace, Jarvis Landry, and Brian Hartline. He'll be in the running for a roster spot at Patriots training camp.

Dolphins released WR Brandon Gibson.

This was an easy one to see coming. An average talent who ruptured his patellar tendon in 2013, Gibson never got back on track last season, operating as Miami's No. 4 receiver. He was owed nearly $3.5 million in salary and bonuses. Gibson can't win consistently on the outside and has lost quickness since his knee injury, hurting his ability to produce in the slot. He'll search for backup opportunities.

The Miami Herald considers Brandon Gibson a candidate to be released.

Gibson is due $4.3 million after spending the majority of 2014 as the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver. Miami can save $3.26M by releasing him as a post-June 1 cut. 27-year-old Gibson has just 59 catches over the last two years. The Dolphins also want to move on from Brian Hartline's $7.3M cap hit.
Feb 25 - 6:59 PM

Brandon Gibson secured 3-of-7 targets for 27 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Gibson spent most of the 2014 season as the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver behind Mike Wallace, Jarvis Landry, and Brian Hartline. Although Gibson has a place in the league -- he is a functional at multiple receiver positions -- the contract ex-Fins GM Jeff Ireland gave him before 2013 proved to be a major mistake. Owed roughly $3.25 million in 2015, 27-year-old Gibson is a likely offseason salary cap casualty. Expect Gibson to resurface as a No. 3 or 4 wideout elsewhere.

Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson secured 2-of-5 targets for 50 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Vikings.

A sub-package receiver in Miami's offense, Gibson competes for weekly targets with Brian Hartline and the Dolphins' tight ends behind Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry. Gibson is another candidate for offseason release.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:50:00 PM

Brandon Gibson caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in Miami's Week 11 win over the Bills.

The score was Gibson's first of the season. With 13 total catches, Gibson is all but certain to be released in the offseason. He's currently due a laughable $3.225 million for 2015.

Brandon Gibson (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Gibson is over his hamstring issue and is now listed with a knee injury. He's fallen behind Jarvis Landry on the depth chart, and is no higher than the No. 5 option.
Wed, Oct 22, 2014 05:21:00 PM

Brandon Gibson confirmed he's fallen behind Jarvis Landry on the depth chart.

"It was a decision that was made and there's nothing I can do," Gibson said. Asked if there was anything he could do to leap back ahead of Landry, Gibson replied, "Nothing probably." With a $4.5 million cap hit in 2015, Gibson's days with the Dolphins are numbered. Gibson says he hasn't requested a trade.

Dolphins declared WR Brandon Gibson, DB Jimmy Wilson, OG Shelley Smith, OT Jason Fox, DT Anthony Johnson, OG Billy Turner, and TE Gator Hoskins inactive for Week 7 against the Bears.

Gibson (hamstring, probable) is basically a healthy scratch. Rookie Jarvis Landry has pulled away from Gibson for slot duties, and Gibson doesn't play special teams. This will be Gibson's final year in Miami after ex-GMJeff Ireland handed him a three-year, $9.755 million deal two springs ago. Samson Satele will start at center for the Dolphins, with Mike Pouncey likely playing right guard.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 11:32:00 AM

Brandon Gibson (hamstring) is probable for Week 7 against the Bears.

Gibson will return after missing only one game. Jarvis Landry should get the majority of snaps in three-wide sets after posting a 6/75/1 line last week.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 08:12:00 PM

Brandon Gibson (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

He was officially limited. Gibson missed Week 6 after suffering a setback with his hamstring injury. Jarvis Landry would remain the Dolphins' primary slot receiver if he's unable to return against the Bears.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 05:13:00 PM

Brandon Gibson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 6.

Rookie Jarvis Landry should add some snaps after sharing them evenly with Gibson the past several weeks. Rishard Matthews will mix into four-wide sets behind slot man Landry and outside threats Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.
Fri, Oct 10, 2014 03:51:00 PM

Brandon Gibson (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Gibson was listed as probable on the Week 4 injury report and suited up to catch two balls for 26 yards. The Dolphins are now coming off their bye week, so Gibson appears to have suffered a setback during the time off.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 12:34:00 PM

Brandon Gibson caught 2-of-4 targets for 26 yards in the Dolphins' Week 4 win over the Raiders.

Gibson remained the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver behind Jarvis Landry, and is now on pace for just 28 catches and 260 yards. Currently due $3.225 million in 2015, Gibson will likely be cut in the offseason.
