    They might want to adjust their writeup so it doesn't say "The Dolphins had other issues they dealt with first – They gave Randy Starks the franchise tag, and gave wide receiver Brian Hartline the extension he was looking for." It would lead to more credibility.

    I do however think Jeff should explore the idea of Freeney, it just shifts the draft priorities around a little but if you cannot get excited about Wake and Freeney tearing **** up then I don't know what will.

    Abraham seems to still have some of his explosiveness at 34, but I would be fine with Freeney, Osi, or Barwin as well

    Id take Freeney as a situational player like JT was his last year here but I dont think the feeling is mutual. Freeney probably wants to go to a contender.

    I really would like us to pick up a veteran DE like Freeney or Osi or Abraham. We need a situational pass rush to take the focus off of Wake a bit.

    I would really like to see the coaches kick Odrick back inside to DT permanently and go with a 3 man rotation.

    Vernon and our new veteran DE would split time with Vernon mostly playing on run downs.

    That's how I would handle the DE position of I were coach.

    Abraham or Freeney ... I'm fine with. I agree with CK in Abraham being #1, however, I wonder if he'll command more than Freeney.

    Both are veteran guys who could teach Vernon (and if Miami drafts another) a thing or two when it comes to getting to the QB. Depending on the contract, I think it'd be a low risk, high reward scenario.

    i agree ,imo i think Freeney has a little more left in the tank than Abraham dose , but either would help our young guys out tremendously and as was said , low risk high reward, i like it.

    Love how the title makes it sound like we are interested in Freeney and the article is purely just guessing at a potential fit or what might make sense. I'm guessing the FO wants to get younger as much as they can instead of getting a vet with 1 to 2 years left.

    Depends on the price, but Freeney and Abraham both seem to have gas in the tank.

    IMO as bad as the cbs were last year it was partly due in part to a lack of a consistant pass rush

    I'd prefer to have Avril, he's a lot younger. Only concern would be he needs to improve on run defense.

    Bringing Freeney to Miami as a situational pass rusher would be an ideal situation for both sides. I like the idea of Abraham too.
