    If we attain MB.....wow. I'm psyched to see the new blitz packages that Coyle will come up with. This is how they plan to beat NE....by investing in athletic pass rushers to maul him. I hope Ireland can close this deal.

    If they sign Bennett, I am anxious to see the numbers and how all these signings effect the next 5 years.

    The Dolphins aren't going to have cap issues untill Tannehill plays like a Pro Bowl player and they have to redue his contract.

    It's not known currently. But if the Lions are pursuing him (with their low cap number) it can't be too much.

    I dont see how people are seeing it this way. Most of these contracts have very low first year cap hits so down the road we will feel it.
    Look at ellerbee's contract. Very cap friendly year one but year two its already like 8 million year three over 10 million.
    You cant be low cap hits year one and not expect to take larger hits in a couple of years

    Because after a few years the money isn't guaranteed. You can trade or cut them when it gets too expensive.

    All of the #Dolphins new contracts have their guaranteed money up front in 2013 and 2014. Tannehill extension time could be 2015

    Yes but the salary cap is projected to go up quite a bit with the new TV deal, that is why I think they are doing it that way

    We have had a great D-Line and pretty good LBs for a while now and still no playoffs. Its a nice luxury to have, but we need more turnovers and they havnt been getting it done. Hope that changes this year.

    We'll deal with in down the road.

    For now I say go all in.

    "damn the torpedoes. full speed ahead."

    We've been doing things on the cheap to get to this point so lets just build a winning team and let the accountants do the rest

    I see it a little different than a lot of people, By the end of last season i knew Miami needed to change LBs asap, even if it meant being a tad bit worse in coverage, Miami needed speed to counteract the read option or the pistol formation. From what I have heard we just got a bit faster. If we got Bennett, Keller, Winston going into the draft I would feel like i did in the 70s and 80s again.

    This is the first time miami splurged like this while other teams (pit,balt,SF) have done it year after year. If you think a one year binge is going to strap us down the line, you havent been paying attention. Yes the ravens have been dismantled but they got a ring before it happened.

    I don't get the guys that complain Bout the $$ were spending. It definitely will effect future cap numbers but we have to spend $ to be competitive. Hopefully these additions work out

    What you can expect is to be cut before your contract ends. How man free agent signings get the chance to finish out their back loaded contracts? Maybe 5%?

    Honestly I've been looking at the contracts and how they are structured, basically if we cut or traded Wallace after 2014 it'd be about 5M in dead money and thats it. Wallace makes about 15M garenteed next year and that is his pay day year, beyond that it is reasonable. The same thing can be said of the LB's. Very little locked in money beyond 2014. We are also sitting well in terms of the cap next year as well, in 2015 a lot of the big contracts dip and I assume that is related to Tannehill or the preception that they will have to pay him.

    With that said we have a lot of free agents again next year that will need to be re-signed but most are managable if they want to retain them and not let them walk.

    the way the NFL works is that these guys will either restructure or or get cut at that point
    just like dansby and burnett
    how do you not see it that way

    It's not like we're resigning our own pro bowl players.

    Front 7 may look great but our corners look like crap and our Oline is honestly down right scary. Don't love Martin at LT, don't love Richie at LG should probably be playing RG, Pouncey is a beast, Jerry should probably be playing RT not RG, and then blank. Scary thin

    This. The mobile QB's mean our LB's need speed. We got younger, cheaper, faster and probably more takeaways.

    Last season our defense set a record ... Least Takeaways Ever by a Miami Dolphin Defense. That's not good. Replacing Dansby and Smith means we dropped 2 guys that dropped easy interceptions to win the Indianapolis game last year. Burnett, Dansby and Smith all had very low takeaway numbers over thelast fee years. The last season we were good we generated A huge plus in turnover margin. These moves replace inferior takeaway gguys.

    Watching offenses these days, LB's that can cover TE's, rush the passed, and pursue will become increasingly needed. Great move by Ireland.

    And being in a division with two freak hybrid TE's may have also inspired this move.

    Well if we dont try to make their first year salary so low no need to restructure so soon. This is why NFL teams constantly have so much dead cap space. Ellerbee's salary jumps substanially quick and Wallace will make 17 million year two
