I know we had talked about picking this guy up last year.
I guess either he wanted too much money, or the Saints wanted too much in return for him.
They liked him last year, could be a possibility!

What happened to Ackerman was he was a RESTRICTED free agent last year. We signed him to an offer sheet, and the Saints matched the offer on the final day before he became a Fin. I pretty sure that was the case. :confused:

If he's already used to blocking for Ricky, why not sign him!! :D Is he too expensive for us? I've never heard of him, so I would think his price tag would be low. :confused:

If Ricky made a push for him and he came in for the Vet Min, then he would be worth it; otherwise, hard to say that he is better than Perry or Dixon

from http://www.miami.com/mld/miami/sports/football/nfl/miami_dolphins/2847483.htm

• The agent for offensive lineman Tom Ackerman said he has spoken with the Dolphins about his client. The Saints released Ackerman on Tuesday after they failed to trade him. Ackerman was due a $750,000 roster bonus Friday.

''[The Dolphins] told me that if anything were to happen like this, to keep in contact,'' Cam Foster said. ``I did, and hopefully something can be worked out.''

Miami had expressed interest in Ackerman prior to last season when the Saints were restructuring his contract.

Saints released Ackerman

This happened a couple of days ago. With them shopping Roaf around and the also released another lineman, can't remember his name, the Saints could have 7 new offensive lineman this year. Have fun McCallister running behind that line. Bet Ricky is very happy to be in Miami now that NO starting to rebuild their offensive line.
