Q & A with Alex
Q: Is there any chance Houston will select Tim Bowens in the expansion draft? I know he makes too much money, but how screwed will the Dolphins be if the Texans actually pick him? Do you think this is a wise move? Randy Green, Inwood, NY
A: I don't think the Texans will select Bowens because he has played eight NFL seasons and, because of the nature of his position, probably won't be a front-line player by the time Houston will be a legitimate playoff contender. If the Texans do take Bowens, the Dolphins will be in trouble having to find an adequate replacement.
Q: Are there any updates on Norv Turner's situation? Also, will the new offensive coordinator bring his own style of offense to this team? Eric Robbins, Longmont, CA
A: As long as the San Diego Chargers head coaching position remains unfilled, Turner is not able to leave his current contract with the team. Turner would bring his own style of offense to the Dolphins, which is a nice blend of running and passing.
Q: What is the likelihood of Houston taking Brock Marion in the expansion draft? Do you think he'll end up with the Dolphins as a last resort like he did last year? Steve Lilburn, Washington, D.C.
A: The Dolphins don't plan to expose Marion in the expansion draft. If a contract extension cannot be finalized, look for Marion to test the free-agent market again. If he can't lead the deal he wants, then he might return to the Dolphins.
Q: How much interest do the Dolphins have in Cris Carter? Why was he on the sidelines during Miami's game against Baltimore last week? Jayson Hammonds, Homestead, FL
A: The Dolphins don't have interest in Cris Carter, as they are set at the wide receiver spot. Carter lives in West Palm Beach, so his attending a Dolphins game wasn't a big deal.
