Yeah, I love that honesty. I have questioned the Dolphin's talent evaluation ability in the past. However, I am more likely to cut them some slack, knowing they realize they have to get better and are looking at themselves for ways to improve. There is an art to it. Hopefully, we will figure it out.That's fair but the fact they acknowledged the made a few mistakes is refreshing
They were, but I don't hate the intent of the plan. Howard was too much of a risk, do to history. Brieda? meh, what did it really cost?Yeah because that Howard signing and somewhat Brieda too was a huge miss that ended up killing the RB position
It actually happens to every team. Even the royal Patriots traded a pick to Miami for a player (Isaiah Ford) they then released only to have Miami re-sign him. No one could have predicted Howard would have been that bad. I like a team that can admit something isn't going to work and move on from it rather than hanging on to save face. You are going to swing and miss in the NFL, it's life.Yeah it happens but not so bad you have to release the guy in the middle of the season.

I don't think they had any designs on drafting a RB last year, save one of the top guys dropping a lot more than projected. The position was purposely deferred until this draft. Exactly the reason Howard was given a one year deal. As it turned out the stopgap they brought in was totally useless, so a situational role player was asked to carry the load. As that turned out, Gaskin was better than many expected.
Bottom line they, in typical corporate "ISO" standard procedure, they are assessing the breakdown in the "flowchart", and attempting to institute a remedy to prevent a repeated mistake.
In a year where the cap was really not an issue. I thought it was 5 million, but in any case, in the reality of the NFL payscale, and dead money, that isn't really a substantial amount. Not nearly as big of a mistake as a longer contract with gaurantees.3 million cap hit
