the most interesting parts to me are this since I no longer care that much about Dg:Originally posted by dirtywhiteboy
so much for Konrad being in jeopardyvice president of football operations Rick Spielman said it (the DG / JW thing) will give the team a chance to work on extensions for younger players.
Among players the Dolphins could target are fullback Rob Konrad, who will be an unrestricted free agent after this season, or offensive tackle Todd Wade, who will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2003 season.
good post....and I agree with most of it except, like ck said, we need to sign him to an extension now instead of AFTER he has his break out season.....the only problem with that is, like you said, he hasn't shown ANYTHING in his limited chances.....i just wanted to add that Minor has gotten limited chances and we all have seen flashes of his talent....Konrad has been around alot longer than Minor and the only flash he's shown is on the trainers table....If i had to make the decision, based on what i've seen of Konrad....i'd give the money to Wade and let konrad go(after the season)....I think we can get a steal if we sign Wade and we will get robbed if we sign Konrad.Originally posted by clayton83
nice post. it really puts everything we have done lately in a good perspective. spielman and wanny have done an exellent job trimming the fat, keeping the important players, while providing us cash [at a time when most all the other teams are broke] and holding team chemistry together. but...............
i would not be handing rob konrad any big money yet. i know alot of guys are really geeked on him, but he HAS been given oportunities and hasn't produced much. he seems to get hurt everytime someone gets a good tackle on him, has dropped some easy stuff and hasn't been a runner either [not that any fin back has], but still, he just hasn't backed up all the hype he had coming out of college. even if you get limited chances, if your talent is all that, it will show up. he has a lot to prove before throwing him big bucks.
let him have this season under norv. if he can't succeed in this system, we have our answer. you know he will be thrown a lot of balls. plus, he will have the incentive of playing in a contract year adding some hunger to his game. then give him top fb money if he proves worthy.
TODD WADE on the other hand should be given some cash. it is pretty apparent what he is and should get a nice little raise, not tony boselli type money, but enough so he won't be an issue next year.
