FINS SAYING FAREWELL TO McMICHAEL

A league source tells us that the Miami Dolphins will soon be releasing tight end Randy McMichael.

McMichael, who recently emerged on the trade block, was due to earn a $3 million roster bonus on Wednesday. In lieu of paying the money, the team is cutting him loose.

The veteran tight end should draw immediate interest in a relatively weak field of free-agent tight ends. But the red flag is his history of allegations of violence against his wife.

Then again, in today's NFL, that's like getting pulled over for having an expired inspection sticker, isn't it?

From PFT, so not a lock yet, they did state it more definitively than they usually do.

You'd try to take him to the seahawks you mean.

There's a lot of takers for McMichael when he hits the market: Panthers, Packers, Bears, Bengals and Bills, to name a few.

If the price was right I would love to see him in a Lions uniform...

Where do you get these teams? I'm not suprised by any of them mind you, but I've only heard Green Bay being rumored.

......at TE. He doesn't have even half of what either of the Marks brothers had.

I expect GB to make a hard run at McMichael since they desperately need a pass catching TE.

I'm pretty sure he was just listing teams that need a TE.

In that case the Bears don't. Des Clark had a better year than all but a handful of tight ends last season.

I'd really like to see the Saints make a big play for him. He would give Drew Brees that security blanket he has needed down in New Orleans and I feel he would really compliment Marques Colston and who ever is going to be the #2 WR.

in the sun-sentinel now too...this is the first move the new regime does that makes ZERO sense to me. saints reportedly offered a 4th round pick over the weekend for him (at least i heard they did) and now they are gonna release him for nothing...

Miami signed David Martin who is a decent pass catcher so it's not a big shock b/c his production has dropped

Isn't that because he was used as a blocker more often last year?

DG would be the guy to ask on that, hopefully he can chime in.

wow someone is gonna get a good TE, he is pretty young as well only 27 or 28

Look for the Saints to make a big move to get him, especially if that report is true that we offered a 4th Rounder for him over the weekend.

If that was true, than why wouldn't the Dolphins accept it? getting a fourth would be better than nothing.

im not sure if its true or not, i read it on other message boards but im still in amazement and shock that we couldnt get anything in return for a top 10 TE.

becuase Mueller wanted a 3rd.

I know, but the report was Mueller wanted a 3rd or no deal. Basically, unless a last ****** deal happens, this is going to be a similar scenario to when we got Tebucky Jones from NO two years ago. The Saints wanted a 4th, we offered a 5th but they said no so we waited until he got released.

Green Bay could go after him.

it's true. hank goldberg said a close source told him that randy will be cut tomorrow.
So Long, Butterfingers McMichael.....

I'm with dia on this one. He'd give us another dimension to our offense and also potentially take away a need to be addressed in the draft. Either him or Eric Johnson (whom is reportedly visiting) would be nice to add.

They just spent a 2nd rounder on Byrd.. I really don't feel like TE is an issue the Rams are worried about right now.

2nd Rounder on Klopfenstein, 3rd on Bryd. I don't care, I want McMichael, he would bring another dimension to this offense.

Marc Bulger would be able to throw to:
Torry Holt
Isaac Bruce
Drew Bennett
Randy McMichael

Wow.

You just added extra reason and proved my point of why the Rams probably won't even pursue him. TWO first day picks on TEs; it would be foolish to do such a thing.

Trade Klop for a pick :)

I agree that the Saints could use him, but didn't he have assault charges against him last year for beating his wife?

doesn't seem like a guy the Saints would go after, but maybe there's more to the situation.

Flyboy

Yeah, he did I believe. I don't think he was actually convicted though and what the specifics of the story was. I mean, Jamaal Brown is just getting clear of something similar but I don't know how similar the two stories are.

Minnesota could cut Jim K. and sign him and now have Shaincoe and McMichael be a good tandem.

Heh, I wouldn't be surprised in a year when Jeremy Shockey needs a new deal and the Giants don't want to pay him big money to see him sign with the Dolphins.

I mean, at least this way he won't get yelled at for going to work out in Miami during the off-season. Right?

Well I hope he's happy that he held his ground and got nothing instead. :rolleyes:
