    I have talked with person with knowledge of T.J. McDonald probation situation and am told Dolphins safety asked and received from court extension to fulfill terms of probation. So he should be fine as long as he fulfills obligations this offseason.

    The loss of Nate Allen was the most undereported/underrated injury the Dolphins suffered. The back half of the defense was worse down the stretch than it was earlier in the season.

    Why all the hate for McDonald? I thought he played well and laid some massive hits on people. He brought some attitude to a defense lacking it.
    I'm sure all of you know he won't do a day in jail, hell get an extension to do his hours and it'll be like nothing happened.
    I for one was happy to see us getting him next season for the whole season. He could have made some good plays had he been with us for 16 games.
    We all knew of his behavior before he was even signed.

    Typical Dolphins.... Extend a suspended player who now might be going to jail, a POS like Kiko, a career average at best player like Branch.... And do nothing with JARVIS LANDRY.

    That was my original thought as lawyers always have a way of delaying court orders. TJ had 8 games off to get his requirements done and didn't. His priorities are a mess the way I see it.

    Seems most were thrilled at the idea of an easy out for the Dolphins but now they won't have that if TJ abides..

    The most important part IMO..can we still draft James though :)

    And if he is, the Dolphins could void the guarantees in his deal. The Miami Herald has obtained a copy of his contract, and there is language that would place McDonald in default if he “is incarcerated resulting in the player’s failure or refusal to report, practice or play with the club.”

    However, that does not seem likely at this point.

    I thought TJ provided a much needed physicality to the defense. While not being a true FS and having the natural coverage skills we so desperately need at the position, he did excel in run support and more often than not delivered the hammer in brutal fashion.

    It’s not hate. It was a mistake locking him in with a new deal. Miami has two SS and no FS. Miami needs a real FS and won’t have one because of locking up two SS.

    Even if he NOW does what he should have done a long time ago, doesn't it talks about the type of person he is? By all accounts he's been a model citizen since he's been with the team but that seems like someone that doesn't really care. What will happen next? Nobody's talking about the way he played but this off the field stuff with so many guys is incredible

    Ozzy rules!!

    According to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, McDonald was due in court Tuesday to provide proof of completion but his counsel was only able to show he had completed 40 hours of service. McDonald was granted until March 14 to show proof of progress.

    At that time, it is possible McDonald’s probation could be reinstated. Or it is also possible he could encounter a probation violation hearing.

    So it could be that he's completed the community service and his counsel didn't have all of the required paper work. Might just have to wait and see how it pans out. I'm thinking at worst his probation is revoked and then extended. It would be different if the violation was due to another offense.

    Looks like we opened up some cap space. Wtf. I was looking forward to him and reshad next year. We were looking to possibly draft a safety too to start using 3 safeties and now...nope. Now we need a starting safety next to Jones. This team just never stops does it?

    He’ll wind up on the team. Will cram his 200 hours in to a couple of weeks or so.

    All he has to do is slip $1000 to a clerk somewhere who can sign off that he really did the community service work and the paper work was mishandled.

    Wait, PAROLE violation or PROBATION violation? They are two VERY different things with VERY different consequences.

    If it's probation for missing doing community service he isn't going to jail. Judge will just give him a second chance to complete it with a fine. And if he does time for missing community service it won't be more than a couple months tops

    still brought up the possibility of getting Derwin James. Do you pass up on a guy like that, assuming AND I MEAN ASSUMING, he is their BPA? And if you do draft James, FOR FUN, can you convert Mac into a LB?

    You can play all 3, Burke wanted to play all 3 when Nate Allen was still playing once TJ came back..

    Miami wants to add another S this offseason and unless Earl Thomas gets free then the draft is where to go, there's a lot of good/great FS prospects this year. Get one..Derwin James, DeShonne Elliot are 2 potential elite FS..Get em.

    You will see a lot of Miami's TE coverage problems drop a lot if they can get a FS to man middle of the field..Especially one like James who can cover but he's also 6'3..Not an easy window to throw into.

    I do not Concur!!! Tj Mcdonald and William Hayes were great acquisitions. He had a DUI and was suspended before the season even started. Did you hear his name during the season that he got arrested in a club or beating his wife/girlfriend??? NO

    Idiots like him may make a lot of money, but they also blow a lot of money. There was a study recently showing that most NFL players are broke within two years of leaving the league.
