    Boston going to be released

    Just heard on espnews that boston was told he'll be released due in part to the signing of K. Carter today.

    I understand because of the new regime. But, it sucks that we will never see this guy contribute to this team.

    Agreed. With all the questions surrounding this guy, he wasn't entitled to anything beyond vet min + incentives. If he wasn't willing to take a pay cut, then this was the best thing to do.

    This is the only thing that I am confused about with this organization, why is Spielman still in the building?

    Exactly what I was thinking. As much as I would like to see us draft a running back at no. 2, which wr might be the perfect fit in Linehan's system?

    especially in a draft where there will be gems galore in the 6th and 7th rounds

    I'm a little upset too, but you certainly can't blame them for this move. At this point, he probably seemed like all downside with his recent new troubles off the field too. I know he could have done something for us, shame about that injury.

    I do wish that he had a chance to produce before we cut him, but obviously he wasnt willing to take a pay cut. Kinda sad IMO

    I wanted to see what a healthy Boston could do this year, but it makes sense to clear the cap space. Given his recent injury, and overall history, we might still see him back this year with a minimum contract and incentive bonus package. Maybe.

    Linehan seems to prefer a 3 WR package, right? Chambers, Booker and Boston, with McMichael and one of the top HBs in the draft would make for a powerful offense.

    So We Gave Away A Draft Pick For Exactly Nothing. Along With Paid Him Money For Exactly Nothing? That's A Bad Idea.

    maybe we released him for the room for carter but will resign him later - i don't know - my biggest fear is that he gets his act together and has a monster year for another team - oh well as long as it's not in the east

    If he didnt want to help this team by taking a paycut, then i say dont let the door hit you Boston. I am glad he is gone cause he is a cancer.

    I think he is a monster talent also but don't see him doing much without sullivan. He is off to SF IMO.

    From Miami Dolphins Home Page


    The Miami Dolphins today signed two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Kevin Carter to a five-year contract. Carter, a first-round draft choice of the St. Louis Rams in 1995 (6th overall), is a 10-year NFL veteran who spent the last four years with Tennessee. He was released by the Titans on February 22. Also on Monday, the team terminated the contract of wide receiver David Boston (failed physical). :shakeno:

    I, too, was looking forward to seeing Boston produce for Miami. I thought he'd made real strides. That said, thgink of it this way: we're cutting someone who was injury plagued over a five-ear career to make space for someone whose never missed a game in a career twice as long.

    Damn, I really wish this team had a RB in place so we could snatch Braylon Edwards at #2.

    Maybe we can find a way to acquire Michael Bennett for a mid-rounder or something, because I highly doubt we can get Edge without giving up that #2, which would be a killer.

    I honestly don't see why we can't give Plaxico Burress a visit. As previously reported, the Vikings say they aren't interested and they're trying to net Rod Gardner.

    Yes sir.Even if he did renegotiate his contract he looked to be an injury prone player.They look good in shorts but they have to stay on the field to do any good.I dont think he is going to get far in his next team.

    Speilman is NOT making these decisions... Saban has stated that he is the one in charge a number of times....

    Interesting to note that, at least according to the Dolphins site, a failed physical apparently led to his release.

    I am sure if you ask the Cards and Bolts fan they will say that Boston was a cancer for them. No doubt he would of been some kind of cancer if we kept him here.

    Ya know, this can't be blamed on RS...we took a shot on him, based on having his old coach here, but it backfired...one way to look at it is that we got the #2 overall pick, in part because he didn't pan out...?? Well, I would have liked to see him on the field too, but we do need other positions even more...(safety, Rb, C, etc...)

    The other thing about Boston is that he failed his physical... He himself only said that he was about 95% healed. Who really knows how far off that estimate was?

    Yep.. it shows how incompetant Spielman is.

    Not only did he give up a 6th, but he basically gave up a first by giving SD Fletcher as well.

    This move also shows how Spielman is officially neutered. If Spielman were still making decisions, he wouldve kept Boston just to cover his arse.

    I didn't think you could release an injured player already under contract.
