    Agreed. I've never liked that word. Your supposed to be optimistic about the team you root for. My logic is even if the team signs someone I don't like. I'm still going to root for the guy anyway. How does that make me a homer? He's on the freaking team. I want us to win games.

    I just got a Minkah, but an X jersey is next up on my list for sure.

    So much for having to overpay anyone.

    PFT reporting his deal is about $13 million a year for 6 years.

    Am I reading this right? This dude just saved the Dolphins about 3-4 million a year in what he’s worth. And that’s today, 3 years from now he will be grossly underpaid.

    Wow, hopefully Laremy follows suit.

    Can’t ask for more from X.

    I don't agree that he seems like he will back off now that he has the big money - but it's definitely crossed my mind - still appreciate you actually providing some reasoning! Either way though, the level of play this guy has shown, still young, no locker room BS, seems like a good one to roll the dice on. He's single handedly kept us in games many a time already. I think he's a keeper.

    In fairness, even X might not realize how good he is. Most of the NFL world doesn’t.

    Dolphins brass was definitely high fiving alot after that deal got done.

    He’s been a little injury prone to be paid the all time highest imo but when he’s on the field he is a difference maker. Overall I’m happy we locked him up

    Which is exactly what I wanted. He gets money early and it’s guaranteed with no risk of injuries meanwhile team gets a deal.

    So top LT money is 16 million offer Tunsil 12-13 per season including the next 2 years. Team saves money on future contracts and Tunsil gets the deal without risk of injury and earlier.

    The opposite of this is Leveon Bell. He sat out to make 2 million more per season without thinking its going to take him 5 seasons just to make up the 10 million he lost by sitting out.

    Maybe a good discussion is where does he rank with corners? Certainly top 5 and I think you have to separate those into press and zone. Imo Ramsey is the best press corner and Howard is the best zone corner
