    I thought u meant articles about Manny, as in Wright, the future of our DL. But, great post. Thanks for the info. Question: do we go after Brees and McGinist if there's no extension? These guys are going to want relatively large signing bonuses, I'm assuming - Brees because of his shoulder, McGinest because of his age - and since we're already close to the cap, with the shortened prorating period and limited salary increases, it sounds like we won't be far enough under to sign to big name guys like that. Besides, both players have multiple suitors and their prices will get bid up - someone is going to end up paying them alot of money, I don't see us being the ones to do that in our situation, especially since it looks more and more like we're in a real youth movement/rebuilding period.

    Secondly, does anyone else find it scary that we basically have 1.5 QBs on the roster (Lemon and Berlin), neither of which has any NFL game experience, in a pretty bad QB free agency market - the best options out there are guys with bum throwing shoulders (Brees, Pennington). Even if we get our starter from the draft, it's a little worrisome from a depth standpoint. I think we're going to sign Josh McCown - he was average last year and will probably come cheap. I guess we're left hoping that Cutler falls to us, whereas a week ago I thought we had the luxury of waiting at 16 and getting Cutler, Justice/McNeill, or the best remaining DB or LB.

    Finally, I still say our faith in Ricky is vindicated and would love to see him in a Fins jersey again next year, especially with our questions at QB.

    I don't think we're screwed if we get rid of Lance Schulters. Sometimes people don't see the forest for the trees.

    Our secondary sucked last year. Yet, Travis Daniels did well.

    So why should it be surprising when we get rid of three of our four starters in the secondary?

    You gotta clear some dead wood if you want to rebuild something.

    who is going to replace the dead wood then b/c the possibly good DB in the FA are going to eb overpriced and we dont have enough pics for the draft.

    as bad as our secondary could possibly be, the WR in our division are even worse.

    Interesting, did anyone else notice that the Fins sent our scouts rather than Garrett to Jacobs workout...is that a sign that we aren't too interested in him or is it a ruse to show disinterest to throw other teams off ?? You never know....

    I wouldn't look to hard into that. It was his OWN pro day. He worked out at the combine.

    If we hadn't had a scout there, that would MEAN something. Nick's got enough on his plate. As does his offensive staff. :dolphins:

    He did, but the original starting unit was Sam, Lance, Tebucky, and Travis. I actually was pleased with Tebucky's performance, but his $6.5 million cap figure was never meant to be achieved.

    Even with Bell performing well he's still not a starter in my eyes. Not yet, anyway. Maybe he surprises me more, but for now he's a good athlete playing the position but not very instinctive yet...especially when it comes to angles on tackling. I think he should be moved to free safety anyway and that means buh-bye Lance in the pants.

    Dolphins will be looking at some safety prospects in the draft most definitely. The whole secondary needed revamping. It's this safe attitude of "we lost so and so! omg what are we going to do?!?" that got our team in trouble under Wannstedt. When the team needs some work, some heads gotta roll. That's the way it is.

    something people are overlooking...

    The receivers in our division are pretty brutal. As unintimidating as Travis Daniels and Yeremiah Bell sound, im not exactly shaking in my boots thinking about them having to cover 48 year old Troy Brown and Deon Branch
