    Pouncey said Landry will get what he "deserves"......of course what he deserves might not be the same as what he wants

    Ozzy rules!!

    Players understand the NFL because the eat, sleep and live it. Fans get the Sunday edition plus their opinions.

    I love those players but they act as if the team did nothing. The fact that we offered him $13 million a year seems to escape everyone’s grasp. It takes two parties to sign a deal and apparently our offer wasn’t good enough.

    Do they have an idea on the salary cap restraints the team has?

    Sure they understand the salary cap plus realize Laundry was working dirt cheap last year on a loosing team going nowhere giving it his all and gambling he would not get injured. They realize the team gambled also by not resigning him a year earlier thus putting themselves in this position. They don't feel sorry especially OJ because a toe injury in the last game of last year could have derailed Laundry's career and this entire debate would be mute. They also appreciate his fearless play which was rare on the phins last year.

    I really don't think we will find a trade partner with Landry. If we keep the tag on him for this year can we trade him at any point ? Like during the draft?

    I believe so, but he would have to have signed the tag

    Miami BLEW IT! He needed to be signed 18 months ago - given lots of cash in a bonus and paid like a man - they could have made him handsome at 10 million a year then....

    Once again poor management - lack of foresight gets us crushed again.

    We cannot afford him anymore.

    Let him go to an organization that won't waste the rest of his career!

    I am SO sick of being a Dolphin fan! Its terrible - an affliction - an incurable disease. It does bring death eventually - first to the team and then to its fans!

    No real restraints at all. Restructure/extend Juwaun James or cut him. Saves 3-4 million or 9 million if cut.

    Thomas and Timmons are already cleared out of the locker room. 11 million saved.

    Now that puts us afloat if we signed Landry long term and put his cap around 12 million for this year (we can back load it as well)

    We can also restructure Suh and Tannehill and extend both. Many don’t want this but if you believe the team can be fixed this is your move, saves you 15+ million.

    We are strapped this year and have to make some moves but we are 50+ million (this will be more once next years cap increases probably 8+ million) under for next year and 100 million under for 2020.

    Plenty of money with no strap just have to get creative. The cap is always going to increase so backload some contracts and maintain to draft well to keep a solid core and bam fixed.

    You said all that and then said we’re strapped this year. That’s where the restraint is.

    If he resigns, will I still have to suffer from his little retarded millennial emotive chain-moving arm swing signal thing every time he catches one of his trademark 2.3 yard bubble-screens? Does he do that because of a nutritional deficiency as a youth or is it a signal to the gay community that the Landry train is about to be unfurled?
