    People are going to be upset with what is truly available out there in free agency. Most of the good young players have already been hit with the tag.

    I did here that Max Starks was only hit with a transition tag. That might be a smart signing.

    Keep in mind some players will also be re-signed before they ever hit the market in still over a week.

    Stop these getting multiple star dreams.

    FA is always like the first year that you know there is no Santa Claus

    "Should we sign Trufant and Haynesworth?"

    "sure why not?!!!!!!"

    People are telling people what to dream now too.

    With ample salary and the overall #1 pick in the draft its not that crazy to think we might land a super talent or two very good talents.

    But yeah I'm just dreaming right now.

    You can dream with the draft...that could turn out very well for the Dolphins. But free agency is most often fools gold. By the way, you can get Trufant off your wish list. He was franchised. Point proven.

    there is only a couple guys that i want to sign in FAs now and that is Y. Bell, Ken Hamlin, and a young WR maybe DJ Hackett ( if he doesnt resign with the Hawks) or Bryant Johnson, or Bernard Berrian ( Bernard and DJ are the two people i would pick first but i think we will go with Bryant Johnson i think Bernard and DJ will sign back with there teams

    Nothing like dreaming, isn't that what we have been doing for years and years. Unfortunately that is all we've had is our dreams.
    Maybe, just maybe, we have a reason to dream now with Parcells at the helm rather than Wayne.

    There is still plenty of talent left in FA. J. Smith, Briggs, Samuel, Pace, Flo, Hamlin, Faneca, etc. If we got one of those players I would be happy, 2 and I would be pumped out of my mind even though odds are we wont

    Sorry about having wish lists/dreams or whatever you want to call them, let's just cry about our state and see how many practise guys we can sign because that's so much more fun. Please no more trade ideas or even guess how many wins we'll get. Don't give me your draft wish lists because that guy will never be there and that guy can't play in our defense or offense. 31 million under the cap and it's all going to a eight year extension for J.Taylor and to bring Dan back. And last but not least your opinion is wrong, dead wrong so don't even post it !!! Have a good night, and please keep them coming.

    FA obviously isn't going to be what alot of people hoped it would be a month or so ago....but the front office just cleared a sh*tload of cap room and it wasn't just to sign our draft picks with.

    There will be at least 2 major signings by the dolphins IMO, plus at least half a dozen non major signings (guys who were backups on other teams....guys who got cut because of a coaching change and they didn't fit the new coaches system...etc)

    I'll never understand why people on here trash other people's ideas or opinions, you may not agree fine but telling people what they should do during the off season and how they should think is a bit much isn't it. Believing in Santa Claus doesn't hurt anyone it only adds to the excitement of the season. Ho Ho Ho

    Why ?? That is what this time of year is for most fans... At this point, anything can happen. For the first time in forever, we have money, high round draft picks and the best talent evaluators in place since JJ. This is exactly where fans want to be at in late February...

    If you choose to not make anymore threads about guys coming on the FA market...so be it...I would never tell you to 'make more threads', don't tell others to not make those threads...

    Are some ridiculous...absolutely. Are most redundantly redundant...yes...but that's why folks are here and why they read this site...

    I opened this thread expecting some actual thought put into the issue of how Free Agency has changed and how teams don't lose players that they don't want to lose but, instead, all I got was urine in my cheerios.
