    pre Armando Salguero the fins have signed Trusnik to an extension.. [h=3]Dolphins do Trusnik extension, in great 2013 cap situation[/h]It's not about this year anymore, as you know. It's about next year, and particularly next offseason for the Dolphins. And the team has been preparing for that mega-offseason in which it will have five picks in the first 100 picks of the NFL draft and approximately $46,840,000 million in salary cap space, assuming certain things happen.

    First of all, the club has done only one contract extension this season. Jason Trusnik last month quietly signed a two-year extension on his original two year deal signed in 2011. That means Trusnik is signed through 2014 now. The extension is worth $2.17 million. It included a $600,000 bonus with base salaries of $715,000 in 2013 and $855,000 in 2014. Trusnik is making $700,000 this season

    He's an excellent special teams player. That's why he got the pay increase.

    I have to agree. He is making barely over the minimum and he is a good ST player. He has been in the league for 6yrs.

    Ben Violin kind of hints in his article that Bush and Fasano might be re-signed soon after the season ends.

    Trusnik played much better in Misi's place than I thought he would. Good back up and special teamer.

    I cannot help but think that Dansby's cap number could be re-done and I wonder about Bess' number.

    I've read on Phinsider.com, Miami can free up about $12M-$15M in additional money, if they were to, cut both Richard Marshall and Richie Incognito; as well as, restructure both Soliai and Dansby. It looks as if Patterson is going to have to restructure as well if he's going to make it past 2012. Phinsider.com suggest Marshall's back is problematic and he could be replaced. I think Ireland has a plan in place and most of the players already know if they are coming back to Miami next season. The whole league did the same thing Miami has done this season, by not resigning anyone to extensions during the season, preferring to wait until late or after the season ended.

    I always kinda liked Trusnik despite what some around here may say. I think he is solid on ST and when given opportunities on D or forced into action because of injuries he hasnt done a terrible job IMHO. In fact, he has made a couple of plays. He is better than some of the bums we have kept on this team that people seem to think are good. At that contract he is a great bargain. Im glad he is going to be on the team for the next couple of seasons.

    I cant wait for this offseason. March and April are going to be exciting times. LETS GO!!!!

    I like Trusnik but special teams is not why. He is a good cover LB over middle and sets the edge good when needed. Solid backup,thats why he is resigned. He prob can fill any LB spot. ive noticed him since preseason covering julio jones.
