I agree w/you. It is up to the stars on D if they are willing to possibly make less $ to play in Miami and also to the rest of the league. If Jason or someone were to get an offer for 2x more than Miami could pay from the Raiders, like happened w/Trace, he would likely go.Originally posted by gottahavefootba
Everybody keeps talking of this window closing.... I would think we would try and keep our core on D.. Jason, Timbo, Pat, Sam and Zach. Can't we just redo thier contracts and backload them like we have been doing... why will we HAVE to let them go?? On O it is only Ricky and Chambers that we would Have to keep.. Can't we keep that core and look for a few FA vets and a few surprise additions and have a chance every year??
Why do we have to drop everybody and start over?
I just don't see us getting rid of Sam Madison. He just might be the best CB in the league. You're right about the OL. Guys like Ruddy's days are numbered.Originally posted by grooves12
I hate to say it, but I think Madison would be the first to go before Surtain. Also, Bowens probably won't be around too much longer and neither will nearly ALL of our high-priced Offensive Lineman.
But, don't expect the Dolphins to see anywhere near the type of salary cap hell that the Ravens or Niners saw. The Dolphins have been one of the few teams in the league that have kept their contracts reasonably priced and fairly even throughout their years.
