  • Dolphins Free Agency Thread

    In just under 6 hours, free agency will officially begin! We have the most cap space in the league, I so hope we finally use some of it! Any last minute guesses from Phins fans who we will be signing during the period, or RE-signing for that matter???

    My Guesses (New Signings):

    OT Flozell Adams
    CB/S Eugene Wilson
    DE Marques Douglas
    OG Justin Smiley
    WR Keyshawn Johnson

    I really hope we resign Bell too, but if we get Wilson, that could end that. Hadnot would be nice to get back too, I just think that's a longshot at this point. What do you guys think!?

          Justin Smiley is a Dolphin!

          For 5 years at 25 million. Not too horrible. I think he's on par with the Derreck Dockery's of the world and we got him for 2 million a year less. I like the signing. These are the kind of moves we need to make. He is a good, dependable guard. Not a world beater like Fanaca would have been but definately a guy we can rely on.

            Very solid guard. Reminds of a Chris Snee type for the Giants. Good first signing for the phins as they are trying to build a solid offensive line. Now do we draft Jake Long at #1 to complete the line???? If Calvin Pace signs then it's really looking like Matt Ryan or Big Jake.

                As a 9er fan I can tell you he is great at pulling. He had a good 06 and an okay 07'. Good signing for you guys nonetheless.

                  Calvin Pace coming to the Phins???

                  Dolphins to make Pace a Mega Offer:Alex Marvez Fox Sports
                  Feb. 29th 56 minutes ago


                  Don’t be surprised if Arizona linebacker Calvin Pace leaves South Florida as a member of the Miami Dolphins following a free-agent visit.

                  A league source told FOXSports.com that Miami is preparing to offer Pace the same kind of mega-deal that linebackers Adalius Thomas and Joey Porter received in free agency last off-season. New England and Miami signed Thomas and Porter respectively to five-year, $32 million contracts that included $20 million in guaranteed money.

                  Incidentally, Thomas and Porter never made the kind of impact in 2007 that was expected for the money paid.

                  While the 2003 first-round pick struggled as a 4-3 defensive end in his first four NFL seasons, Pace blossomed last year when moved to outside linebacker in Arizona’s new 3-4 scheme. Pace finished with career highs in tackles (98), sacks (6.5) and passes defensed (6).

                  By franchising fellow outside linebacker Karlos Dansby, Arizona was willing to let Pace test the market. Unless wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald can be signed to a new contract that lowers his salary cap number of roughly $16 million, Arizona appears likely to lose Pace and wideout Bryant Johnson in free agency.

                      I guess it's time for the Dolphins to make way for Mr. Jake Long at #1.

                        Still early for that, he is not officially signed..... Could be making the way for Matt Ryan as well........ I would hope if they did sign him, that Taylor would be traded..........

                          This has to be the most intriguing news of the day for me. Does it mean the end of the line for Taylor (and Porter), thus making Chris Long a viable option still? Does it mean Matt Ryan?

                              I think Pace would be an OLB in Miami's 3-4 and Chris Long a DE, so I don't think there'd be a correlation between Long and Pace.
