    Im not a fan of Sean Smith. Love physical, smart corners who can tackle, but we have without Smith, no CB worthy of a starting spot.

    I am a fan of Randy Starks......but we have the option of sliding Odrick inside to his most favoured position, with Olivier Vernon at DE. Also the draft this year has great depth at DT & DE.

    Like I said, if this was madded i would keep Starks, but in reality, with the players we currently have, Sean Smith is more of a need than Randy Starks.

    I disagree. Smith hasn't proven in 4 years that he is worth the money. He is too inconsistent and not mentally or physically tough at all.

    IN KEVIN COYLE WE TRUST :)

    He would be making way more money that what he is worth.

    If he was making minimum wage to flip burgers at McDonalds he would be overpaid! Could you imagine the food waste because he drops 4 out of 5 burgers he flips?

    It's still so early in the process that without any sort of inside information on what the overall plan is its impossible to judge any of these moves with any sort of clarity.

    There are a **** ton af free agent CBS this year and we are in a spot to draft a top one as well if we don't lock up one or two in fa. Stop the should of would have threads before u see what actually happens thru the draft and u can see the line up the front office gives us... Starks is closest to the value he is worth regarding tag dollars and I still believe they will work on a 3 year deal. And now with the news that solia had minor elbow surgery it's that more solid of a tag. Regardless if solia is back for camp we are solid at d line.

    I didn't hate Smith, but if he really wanted #1 CB money he should have shown #1 CB ability in his time here. I doubt anyone gives him the money he thinks he deserves, but someone will overpay him.

    Nope, no way, no how. The guy simply dropped too many INT's and would get burned way too often when the game was on the line for me. I have no issue with him remaining a Dolphin, but he's not worth over paying. He needs to be here for the right price, there are far too many DB's coming out in this years draft for us to over pay him.

    You could set Smith out by the curb with the trash. No one would claim him.

    Absolutely not. He was in his contract year and still played as soft as a baby's bottom. What will he do when you give him 20 million. He and VD will tweet and get hack all day.

    Laughable to think that a corner who couldn't intercept a pass if it were handed off to him by the QB deserves to be paid amongst the best at his position.

    The guy we franchised has intercepted one less pass than Smith over the last two years and he is a defensive lineman. I'd rather have that guy on my team.

    No smith is overrated n I think he loses focus at times n can be a detriment to the team besides the fins should be able to draft Rhodes with their first pick

    We should've franchised Smith because there's no one in free agency or the draft that can give 10-15 yard cushions on every single play.

    My mom can catch better than smith. And she can tackle better. Smith has nothing to show he is worth that.
    I really liked ss and vd. Both are used up in Miami. I have seen enough of play 3 solid games and then **** your pants smith.
    We had scrubs off the street that did just as good as smith. Time to get some real corners. Guys that have chip on their shoulder.
    Play tough,aggressive ball. I want guys that go get the ball not wait for it to cuddle into your hands. Bye bye. Sean.

    We would have paid him about $2mil per interception in his 4 year career - 5 in 63 games. He doesn't make any plays. He doesn't tackle well. He's not tough. He's a mental midget. He is a below average CB. His physical appearance is an illusion. It doesn't translate to anything good on the field. And he has a knack for coming up small in big moments. I would have traded him a year ago...

    Its not about if Sean Smith is worth it or overrated, as I agree he is not worth it and is overated. I dont like Sean Smith, but he is no doubt the best corner on our roster, with nobody able to step in and perform anywhere near to his level.

    I love Randy Starks, but we have a player in Odrick who is a no.1 draft pick, playing out of position, who could slide in and replace immediately.

    As i said, I would prefer Randy Starks over Sean Smith, but for the upcoming season, IMO, we will miss Sean Smith more than we would have Randy Starks.

    When it comes to the franchise tag, I agree that Starks was the right call. With the amount of DBs that are hitting FA and those in the draft, I don't doubt that we can find some guys that'll play just as well or poorly, depending upon your stance, as Sean Smith for less money than what he's looking for.
