Dolphins WR Davone Bess has had a pretty good weekend. He caught a TD in the 'Fins' overtime win over the Packers in Week Six and reportedly became the highest-paid slot receiver in the NFL.

According to PFW correspondent and South Florida Sun Sentinel writer Omar Kelly, as well as FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, Bess signed a two-year extension on Saturday making him the highest-paid slot receiver in the league.

Bess signed with Miami as an undrafted free agent out of Hawaii in 2008. He is second on the team with 26 receptions for 282 yards and two TDs this season. He was second in the league in 2009 with 35 third-down receptions.

The way we see it

Bess has become one of the top slot receivers in the game and deserves to be paid that way. The addition of WR Brandon Marshall has made Bess even more effective, allowing him to be a productive safety net for QB Chad Henne when Marshall is double-covered. Keep in mind, though, that Patriots slot receiver Wes Welker is due for a contract extension at the end of this season and could surpass Bess.
