    Here are some rumors courtesy of Twitter:

    CanesBARBER Enroute to cut @MikePouncey and my boy Ahmad Bradshaw hmmmmmm can u say #GoDOLPHINS

    RT @NealDriscoll: BREAKING DOLPHINS STORY: Ahmad Bradshaw is the Fins #1 target. He is currently in Miami. >> Not surprised. Will cost $$$.

    RT @NealDriscoll: Chad Pennington told Sparano to get this guy. Pennington and Bradshaw have a Marshall connection. >> I do hope ur right.

    Basically rumor that Bradshaw is our #1 RB target and that Pennington told Sparano to get Bradshaw and Bradshaw is already in Miami.

    Call me crazy, but I think I rather have Bradshaw over DeAngelo. Bradshaw just turned 25 not too long ago, and if we were to give him a 5 year deal, it'd only take him until he's 30. DeAngelo is 28 and will command a long term deal...which would put him in his early-mid 30's.

    I don't need any official word. If a guy who cuts hair says somethings gonna happen, it's GONNA happen.

    I will act as the official tweet translator. CanesBarber is a barber that cuts hair for local athletes in Miami. He mentioned he was cutting Bradshaw and Pouncey's hair. I guess Pouncey and Ahmad were hanging out together. CanesBarber is speculating Bradshaw will sign in Miami.

    Got it?

    Kind of would prefer to see what Daniel Thomas can do before throwing big money at a fumble machine like Bradshaw.

    Bradshaw has been training in Miami all offseason. It's not news that he is in Miami.

    Agrees man, Deangelo is good but more injury-prone. I just love Bradshaw and would make a very interesting duo with Thomas IMO.

    CanesBarber is actually a pretty plugged in guy when it comes to the happenings in Miami. Check his timeline he called some Canes destinations probably before anyone else, the fact Pouncey and Bradshaw are mentioned in that tweet with a GODOLPHINS at the end indicates he knows something.

    I'm all for bringing Bradshaw in. All we have to do is fix his fumbling, which is easily fixable.

    I agree but I find it interesting that he's hanging out with our starting Center. Looks like Mike Pouncey is trying to recruit. Gotta love it.

    I couldn't complain too much if he signed with us, he's better than Reggie Bush at least.

    Terry Bradshaw would still beat out Henne.

    That would be ideal, so I do not know why you wouldn't want this. NFL contracts are not guaranteed, so give him a 7 year deal with huge back end money, and we cut him in 2-3 years.

    No doubt!!!! I just hope we can make some nice additions. I think #1 above all else is we have to make sure we get our franchise QB. We can piece together everything else after this.

    I really hope he agree's in principle so sign with the fins for two reasons.

    1. We really need a veteran FA to compliment Thomas and he is my #1 choice.

    2. He will be expensive making it tougher for us to stay under the salary cap if they look into trading for Orton. Even if he says he will renegotiate his contract it may not be enough due to the other players they want to sign.

    Not taking anything away from Bradshaw, but man there were some huge holes in that vid. Giants' line did a tremendous job, hopefully ours can do the same. If he gets the holes, he will take advantage of them.

    Be prepared. Thomas is no football protector either. But after seeing Ricky fumble like 3 times in one game, and Ronnies random fumbles... Whats the difference if they can atleast make plays?

    Derrick Ward is a different story...he was 28 years old when he signed with Tampa Bay. He was never a top-10 rusher and really was part of a good system. Bradshaw is very young (25) and has been ascending since he's had the opportunity to do so (he finished 8th in rushing last year I believe). Plus, we have a top 10 o-line which will definitely help.

    I see that some are good holes. But being a smaller back and such helps. I see some sliver of holes that Ronnie would take for 5 yards that Bradshaw is taking for 30. I know its just a highlight but the guys moves in the open field are top notch. Ronnie would breakaway sometimes but never be able to use the speed or moves to finish that big play. Bradshaw is a perfect complimentary back to our offense. Hell may even do a good job as majority carry back.

    I'm not about to trust a Neal Driscoll report. What you see is in all likelihood him seeing a report from a real member of the media, wording it differently (more emphatically), then adding in his own speculation about Pennington recommending Bradshaw. I can only imagine if Chad Pennington read that report he'd be like "WTF??"

    Did anybody else notice at about the 2.12 mark, Tim Crowder(DE) #96 getting Bradshaw from behind and saving a TD.

    Crowder is a free agent that may transition well from 4-3 DE to 3-4 OLB. He hasn't played that well yet for the Buc's so he may be inexpensive, maybe very inexpensive.

    If I recall correctly, I think he was considered a good 3-4 prospect the year he was drafted. He scored a 30 on his wonderlic, which is top tier for DL. He would have the smarts to pick up the 3-4.

    The guy is a decent athlete and at 6'4" 260 he has protypical size.

    Just saying he may be good depth if they choose not to being back Moses.

    Wait, are you saying Chad Pennington doesn't take a personal interest in mentoring every single NFL player to come out of Marshall?

    Getting Ahmad Bradshaw would be a huge pickup.
