    With McMillan getting hurt I think we need to kick the tires on Daryl Washington. 1 year prove yourself deal with no/minimal gaurentees.

    This just means that we could sign one of the best LB's in the league for peanuts. They should sign him.

    Read the Wiki article above. I'd still take a flyer on him for one year.

    Why is he scum? Only thing I saw was under "controversies". Said he pushed his gf in a heated custody argument over his child. I mean im not a big fan of domestic violence issues but c'mon, there's 2 sides to every story and id be comfortable betting ALOT of money that you don't know much about either side. Its a bit judgemental to call the guy "scum".

    Im so frustrated with the Raekwon injury, he was my favorite draft pick, was super excited about him. We need help and we need it quickly. I was so impressed with the front office turning that dumpster fire of inadequacy in our overall LB situation into a very interesting group. But of course, disaster strikes again. If we could get Washington here for a year till McMillan gets back, I think we should do it

    I understand why he is in the same boat as Kap. Choices have consequence. I think he would be a good pick up - I remember he was quite good a couple years back...I believe in second chances.

    Well just hope he can put his off the field issues aside. And hope the Fins can call on him.

    Suspended for three years and out of the league since 2014. No thanks. He was a physical and athletic LB. Im sure the three year break and him turning 31 in October are not conducive to his skills.

    This Dolphins organization has made a point not to bring in players with a lot of drama and who have off the field issues. They have cleaned house of those guys for the most part. I don't see them signing a LB with a rap sheet last minute a month before the season

    He pled guilty. He's scum. Read the transcripts. One count was for grabbing her by the throat and throwing her on the ground and the other was from a push that ended up breaking her collarbone. Scum.

    I would like to introduce into evidence item #7273, the offseason signing of TJ Mcdonald.

    Last time he played was in 2013??? I'm wondering in what kind of shape he is. But he is one of the best LB's when not suspended

    It's not happening.

    We are not signing a guy convicted of domestic violence.

    I agree with Gase and company on this too.

    It's not worth it.

    McDonald was a substance abuse issue not a violence against a woman issue.

    I agree the Dolphins will seek a LB to help fill the void Raekwon left - but it must be a talented player who hits men on the playing field not women in the living room!

    People the guy played last in 2013 you have no ideal what he can do now so even if they did bring him in don't get your hopes up.

    While I don't condone driving while impaired, you are reaching pretty far to compare his situation to anything dealing with violence, like really freaking reaching. Yeah let's compare grabbing a throat, breaking bones, etc.. to this:
    He is gone 8 games for that(wouldn't shock me if an NFL doctor wrote the script for the meds either), how many is Elliot gone for his stuff where there is photo evidence of his "scum" actions towards a female??.. 6. Wrong is wrong, sadly the NFL and vast majority of it's fans rather believe there are levels to wrong and pretend beating a woman is okay but driving impaired is outlandish, driving with a gun in car and a child while speeding from cops(JETS player) is 4 game worthy. You my good sir have a future as a judge, just make sure you send that 10yr old away for life for stealing that candy bar!

    Horrible comparison. McDonald was suspended for drugs something like Reshad Jones was a few years back. Washington was suspended for something far worse
