    Good move? Or should we wait for cuts?

    2017 NFL free agents: Does Rey Maualuga fit with Miami Dolphins?

    [​IMG]
    Maualuga has been a middle linebacker, which would be an interesting fit with fellow inside linebackers Timmons and Alonso. The Dolphins have said they’re considering moving Alonso outside, and he’s comfortable with the change if that’s what they want.

    Maualuga, 30, makes sense for Miami if he’s willing to come in on an affordable one- or two-year deal. He was set to make about $3.7 million this season.

    The Dolphins also theoretically remain interested in free agent linebacker Zach Brown, who visited the team this week.

    I am sure the front office and Coach Gase are exploring all options at this time including Ray. Newly named Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke was Cincinnati’s linebackers coach in 2014 and ’15.

    I would consider it but he has serious athletic limitations. Still I don't think it's gonna be long with mike hull before they make a move. 2 down or not mike lb is a big deal it's a bigger deal obviously when the mike plays the nickel. In base though it's the most critical of the 3

    Better find some guys who at least played as previous starters somewhere instead of having a complete LB group full of undersized special teamers. Don't want to spend another season watching our linebackers get the crap kicked out of them in the running game.

    Yes bro my apologies, however there is talk of Ray again on Rotoworld.

    Rey Maualuga - LB - Free Agent
    The Palm Beach Post considers free agent MLB Rey Maualuga a potential fit for the Dolphins.

    The Dolphins have a need at middle linebacker after losing Raekwon McMillan to knee surgery. Entering his age-30 season, Maualuga faded into a part-time role with the Bengals last year but could give Miami an upgrade over special teamer Mike Hull as McMillan's replacement. Maualuga should only require a non-guaranteed deal.

    I believe it depends on the price, though Maualuga did not turn out to be the player many expected him to become, he can be more then just a band-aide, but again, depends on the price, Miami can not overpay for anyone right now.

    As a base Lb he'd be fine.

    But who is going to make the calls? Maybe Jones or Alonso

    We have to at least inquire for due diligence on just about all options. I personally want to see more of Chase Allen during the preseason, as he definitely stood out against Atlanta. Regardless, the fact that we have Jones back in the lineup is going to help mask a lot of our LB issues.

    Why don't we resign Odrick and experiment with Harris at LB.
