It's been posted by the Chiefs official website. Lydon Murtha it is then!
wow thier goes our chance to upgrade lt . Murtha is definately nothing special
Resign Carey on the cheap. It's not that big of a deal. Or get a RT in the draft in the 2nd or 3rd round.
Carey definitely does not fit on our new scheme.
This draft has some good options at RT in the middle rounds.
Would not be surprised to see the FO draft one.
but we saved money
NO to Vernon Carey
Yea because Carey and the rest of line protected the qb so well last year with a dolphin record 52 sacks
Its like we are shopping at dollar store and overpaying lol
I can't fault the FO on this one, there was no way we were going to be able to afford Winston. He wanted 10mil per season. Chiefs are sitting on a ton of cap and their RT situation was almost as bad as ours. I'll wait and see on the contract, I guess, but I thought it was a real longshot that we could offer him market.
Are the numbers out?
Well that sucks! I really thought we had a chance.
no undisclosed so far.
would have been nice
We can draft a guy like Nate Potter (Boise State) in the 4th round to fix our right side of the line. Don't overpay.
Didn't he fail the Texans physical? I still can't believe the Texans blew up their o-line, they were one of the best in the league. We'll be fine , we have Liedown Martha. I seem to recall that Winston is a Texas boy so he' s closer to home, we weren't going to pay top dollar for a RT anyway.
Wel lets look at free agent report card so far.
resigned NT to fair deal check
signed so called versatile db who is actually a good safety and below average cb check
signed crappy Ol who couldnt stay on browns or redskins roster check
traded pro bowl receiver for 2 thirds check
signed below average lb from jets' check
lost Kendell Langford check
lost out on main target manning even though so many thought it was a lock lol check
Oh yea we are ready to kick some butt now lol
IMO John Jerry can do a decent job at RT, no need to overpay to another player.
But didn't the dumb azz coaching staff move him to Guard a position he last played his freshmen year in college? Not his fault. Maybe he can be a decent player at RT at his current age.
Well that sucks.
Hey Locke - find another team to root for will ya - spare us your "football acumen" - Who said that Manning was a lock!!!??? The poor lineman you talk about was a depth signing, the lb will be a beast on ST, Langford was only a running situation player - you wanted to sign someone who only plays two downs to more than 24 million - half of which is guaranteed. I make that trade of Marshall any day.
Thank god you arent running this team...And yes, I think we are getting ready to kick some ***...
Kind of amazing that a team with its biggest start being a LT and very few other marquee players has so little salary cap room. That Ireland is a genius
Most of this board and many pundits said we were favorite for manning of which I disputed from day one but hey what do I know. I mean I can only look at our salary cap and say hmm he doesnt fit lol.
As for me rooting for another team thats quite a stupid statement, since I have been a dolphin fan all of my life. Also thank god Ireland has ran the team to three staright losing seasons Im sure nobody could have done better. keep your root for another team statements to yourself, Im a miami fan and have every right to be critical of what these idiots have turned our team into.
Plunk! There goes another one gone. We probably never had the money too cover signing him anyway. But every year we start out with a huge wishlist and one by one they go.
I love how dlockz gets **** for bitching about this team, and I guess everybody else is just so consumed with mediorcrity they can't see straight....
we have jake long and pouncey. and we don't have any money to bring in any marquee names? that's poor roster management at it's finest.
we dump one of the main weapons we have on offense and get what will probably amount to nothing in return, and god forbid any "real" fans, should question and ***** about the stupidity.... seriously?
this team has been run into the ground. we hardly have a foundation to even build off short of what looks to be a good anchor at center and a machine for a left tackle who has played great even through injuries he never should have been playing through...
matt moore... thats our qb... that's what we are trying to draw big names to town with... and for what looks to be about 95% of finheaven... that's ok....
Crap more bad news :-(
Murtha, Hicks or we spend the 1st on a RT. Meh.
ROFLMAO we free up money from MArshall and we blow it on 2 scrub linemen and a guy we will position change from cb to fs!
This Winston situation reminds me of why to be good in the NFL you have to be able to draft. There are average players on the FA market asking for substantial money, and chances are there is a team out there that needs it bad enough that they will pay it (look at us and Marshall the DB). But you can't fill a team doing that because there is just not enough cap space.
We need to find an answer at RT, but crippling ourselves in other areas because we have to drastically overpay there isn't improving the team.
Marshall played FS for the better part of the Cardinals run when Kerry Rhodes went down.
He has starter experience at the position. He played FS better than he played CB last season.
Would have been nice to sign him. Oh well. DO NOT BRING BACK VERNON CAREY. He's way too fat for a zone blocking scheme.
I smell another Gerbil!
I hope not. He can't be THAT bad. I mean, you really have to suck if you're comparing him to Gerbil.
As long as you keep him away from corner you are ok. he is a horrible corner. I hate when people use the word versatile to describe a player that is terrible at the other position lol
Maybe that tranny Eric Green!
Winston got 4 years and 22 million per PFT:
Pretty reasonable if you ask me, I wonder what we offered. I understand not putting much more money into the line w/o a QB or many weapons . . but why even flirt if you can't come up with 5.5 million per for one of the better RT's in the game?
They signed him for 4 years at $22 million. I think that is reasonable for him. We should have signed him. He has connections here, he wanted to come to Miami. His brother works for the Dolphins. The FO blew this one!
