Total bargain!

I have to assume Wal-Mart was involved!

Great job!

Tunsil is going to get paid! While some may question if X is really a top 5 DB in the entire league I think few will deny Tunsil's talent.
If I were the Dolphins I would lock up Tunsil 1-2 years before his contract is up. You don't want to wait too long on that deal. The sooner you sign him the bigger the bargain.
I think its more a question of how this coaching staff values the position. The Pats have decided they can get by without elite defensive linemen and prefer to let their guys walk rather than paying market value. If Flores has a similar opinion about offensive tackles he may not think it in the team's best interest to pay the man what he can get elsewhere.

I do think Tunsil will get a deal after this season assuming he plays at or near the level hes shown to be capable of. The team has the cap space to burn and he'd be tough to replace. But I wouldn't be so confident in Grant or Drake getting a payday.

They let Solder and Brown walk. If Cannon had decided to test the market I would assume they would have let him walk as well. I do agree that they've spent in the past and fully expect Flores and co. to re-sign Tunsil before he hits free agency. I just don't expect it to be as easy as Howard.
