    if he was coming he would have signed already, i think he is just trying to get offers from other teams and using us a bargaining tool

    Wrong!!! I think that the organization is trying to give him an incentive laden contract so we don't break the bank. IMO. Just relax and enjoy the offseason. :cooldude:

    I think he will sign with us, just give him some time. Besides I haven't really heard that any other teams are trying to get him.

    plus most guys that sign right away are overpaid. Saban is trying not to get screwed with a big contract.

    He can play us all he wants. The better question is when do we pull our offer from the table? We are setting the tone right now. If a deal isnt good for us, we arent going to break the bank. I get the impression we are not going to go overboard with contracts like before. If he hasnt signed by the time other DL visit us then he may lose his chance to play for us. This will be a no nonsense organization as long as Saban is here. This is how it should be! NO MORE GAMES!

    I just wish the guy would make a decision. He said he was gonna sleep on it- it's a quarter after 12- he must sleep late.

    How is he using us as a bargaining tool? Its clear Saban isnt going to overpay for anyone right now and its not likely we will give him the $5 mil/year he is requesting (which im sure other teams would). Wouldnt he want to use a team that is going to set the bar high on his contract? I think he's made it obvious he wants to be a Dolphin, just give them time to work something out.

    It was only Friday that the Titans said they were out of the bidding and that Carter was probably coming. Relax.

    Riser, it's been 4 days that the PRESS has been saying he is going to sign...be patient..if he doesn't sign with us, there's a reason...however, we have to be aware that he has said all along that his first preference was to stay with the Titans. I admire that in a player...he has spent 10 years there and feels they have the first option...it's not like we are contending with any other teams...right now...

    So what. He's a free agent. That's the definition of free agency. You play the market. I like the fact that we're standing firm on these minimum contracts. If we land the FA, these are low impact potential high reward signings - two years at vet minimums? Heck our hole team is practically playing at the vet minimum. Our cap space from this point forward is going to be nice.

    And if Carter doesn't accept it, then so be it, we'll move on to the next guy (Howard or Burgess etc.).

    I hope we do sign him. That would give us outstanding depth at both DL and LB. You have the potential to go with a lineup in a 4-3 that consists of:

    DE Jason Taylor
    DT Kevin Carter
    DT Larry Chester
    DE Vonnie Holliday/David Bowens

    OLB Junior Seau
    MLB Zach Thomas
    OLB Derrick Pope

    Or we can flip to a 3-4 and lineup as follows:

    DE Vonnie Holliday
    DT Larry Chester
    DE Kevin Carter

    OLB Jason Taylor
    MLB Junior Seau
    MLB Zach Thomas
    OLB David Bowens

    I like the versatility if we can pull it off. I wonder if we sign Carter, if we will still go after Burgess as well?

    I love it when people react to something thats not even fact. First off, Carter is from Miami U is he not? I could be wrong but i thought i read that. second, The titans are so cap strapped its not funny. Carter was one of the reasons they became that way. Obviously, the titans are letting all their stars go becuase they cannot afford them anymore.

    Think before you react.

    why would Carter be playing us when he's take less money to play here....People need to have patience, these are professional athletes and moving from city to city is a big thing, Its not anything like changing underwears everyday.

    Carter wont visit or talk to any other teams because he is giving Miami the first chance. If he was using us he would be talking to other teams also to try and increase our offer. I think he wants to be here, he just wants to be compensated.

    Nonsense! The guy wants a big contract. Tennessee said they weren't interested at all and so he's trying to get as big a contract as he can from us. He's likely negotiating and having trouble deciding. Or, we're too far apart. He may decide he wants to wait and go elsewhere.

    This is what players do. It's the SAME reason Surtain hasn't been traded yet - he wants a big deal teams haven't been willing to get yet.

    Maybe we have reached an agreement but cannot sign until we get the cap room by re-structuring someone else. Is this not a possibility? Maybe it is not his fault that the contract is delayed.
