The Dolphins re-signed Cam Wake...

Don't understand that... does this lower his Cap number?

JT out. Only a late round pick. My guess, JT didn't want to restructure his deal

Probably right.

I'd imagine a pick for next draft, not this one unfortunately. 5th or 6th round.

Jared Odrick was released... would love to bring him back and fit him at DT but not for what he was being paid.

He plays more DE now, but we could use him either way, he's versatile enough to help, period.

Sure but he doesn't play it like a DE.

He plays it like a run stopping DT... put him on the edge to stop the run, tuck him inside with Suh, I really don't care. That would be a major upgrade to Earl "Turnstile" Mitchell.

JT taking a huge pay cut, heavily incentive based.

Getting JT basically rules out the possibility of drafting Njoku

Thomas had cap hits of $8.3 million, $9.8 million and $10.3 million over the next three seasons but Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald is reporting those numbers “have been cut significantly.” Not only are the Dolphins getting an ultra-talented player, but they’re also getting one that was motivated enough to bet on himself and earn his money through incentives...

Thomas is moving into an offensive system he knows and has thrived in. He already has a strong relationship with head coach Adam Gase. After failing to develop chemistry with Bortles, Thomas won’t need a lot of time to bond with Tannehill as he already will be the most experienced person in the locker room with Gase’s terminology.

Add in the soon-to-be completed Brandon Albert deal and the Dolphins shed a combined $21.9 million off their cap over the next two seasons. After nearly cutting him and having to deal with dead money on their cap, trading him to the Jaguars saves Miami money while netting an extra pick. With Laremy Tunsil ready to shift over to left tackle and outplay the 2016 version of Albert, Miami not only improves the roster at two positions, but likely saves money by doing so.

Apparently the LB the Dolphins picked up from the CFL is the best LB on the team. A lot of people like him over Kiko even, supposed to be a beast.

We'll see.

Didn't they say the same about the DE we picked up last year? Cleon? or something

Free Agency Wish List:
(In Order)
Hightower - kicks Kiko to WLB and fixes two positions and adds a Captain and Super Bowl winner.
Zeitler
Warford or Lang.

That leaves every pick you can use on the defensive side which this draft is deeeeeeeep in defensive players.

Random thought before I go to the gym.

Rabbit Hole Digging on what it would cost and comparisons...

$12/year for a 3rd option WR

$11/year for a Captain/Starting MLB.

Good article in the Miami Herald on the Dolphins' potential pursuit of Hightower: http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/armando-salguero/article135385319.html

What that article doesn't talk about is future inflation of the cap itself.

I like Kenny Stills, but he's not bringing us any Playoff success. WR has to be the most expendable position on the field. Having Guards that can block and MLB's that can shed blocks and make key stops in tough yardage stipulations is what we need.

Kenny can produce TD's and he's a quick strike guy. But he's not going to win championships. Sorry
post #87 of 145
Agreed, let some other team pay him $12m a year

That's a dumb amount for a third option deep threat

I think we can all agree on that. It would be ctazy for Philly to pay that to be honest.

John Ross is going to fall to them perfectly, kid is the sameish... faster, same years about, but much cheaper.

I don't agree. Pay Kenny.

Look, when does it stop? When the **** do we actually BUILD a team? We let Clay walk. Miller. OV. Odrick. Traded Vontae. When do we actually start to pay our players as they enter their primes?

He's gonna be 25, and NOW we let him go? Just like all the rest of those guys?

Next it will be Landry "too expensive, let him go"
Then it will be Ajayi "too expensive, let him go"
Then DVP "too expensive, let him go"


"baaaaaaaaahhhhh, why do we always suck, it's our quarterback, bahhhhhhhhhhhhh"


BUILD. Means you keep your players, and ADD to them. BUILD on top of them, with more players.

Draft, and develop. Not draft, and let go. (I know we traded for Stills, but he was 22 when we got him)

Right now we have one hole on Offense, OG. Fill that hole, and flourish.
Let Stills go, now you have two holes. Stepping back. For why? laugh.gif

2 years from now, 12 million for a 26-27 year old receiver will be a bargain. 2 years ago, 12 million wouldn't have gotten you Calvin. The cap goes up and up and up and up, so do the salaries. 12 million now, is like 8-9 mil 2 years ago. Pay him. Keep the core building. Sign a couple OG's. Draft entirely on Defense, let the roster grow under Gase.

I don't agree with that.

3rd option WR, I do not want to let any of those others to go. Dolphins JUST picked up JT and drafted 2 WRs last year. I don't believe there is a hole to fill from that personally. OG would still be the hole on offense. That position not named Landry/DVP is expendable for that much per year. Pay Stills $12/year what do you think Landry then DVP is gonna ask for? $14, $15? No team has won a super bowl with WRs, it's a fact.

I also had his funds allocated to a starting MLB, kicks Kiko to WLB. Fixes two positions.

2 for 1 (like the trade last year) is something I'd be willing to take immediately.

Where I do agree with you is the cap is and will rise and rise until, no pun, someone puts a cap on it.
