« Super Bowl should teach Dolphins a lesson | Main | Complete RFA list here (updated with video) »

Get your complete list of UFAs right here (free)

Many of you have asked my thoughts on what unrestricted free agents (UFAs) the Dolphins should go after this offseason and my response has been, "Let's see who is on the list before we even have that discussion."

Well, Dolphins In Depth has acquired the complete list of UFAs from the National Football League Players Association. These are merely the UFAs. The restricted free agents (RFAs) will be published on this blog at a later date -- I was too tired to type it all in today.

So here is your homework: Go through the list (yes all of it). Pick out the players you believe might help the Dolphins based on the fact they play in a similar system to what Miami runs, or have the makeup the Dolphins typically value. Or simply pick players because they are great and not terribly old.

Do not include Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and Oakland cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha because everyone knows they're great so you wouldn't be discovering any unchartered territory. Then give me your players' names and tell me why you like them.

You asked. Here it is. Go get 'em:

Re-sign Bell, Hill, & Carey

FS Oshiomogho Atogwe

CB Dunta Robinson

CB Bryant McFadden

DE Chris Canty

WR Bryant Johnson - 1st rd in '03 played behind Boldin and Fitzgerald then last year w/ the 49ers; only 27, and 6'3" 211; should have a pretty big upside still

Here are my guys ...

WR Devery Henderson (good return guy that will help take away wear and tear on Ginn),
WR Bryant Johnson, or WR Terrance Copper, WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh (these two guys are tall, fast and have decent hands. I'd take either one of these 3 guys)

TE L.J. Smith (Phins gotta give Fasano a break and help him out by getting another good TE)

OL Jordan Gross, OL Mark Tauscher or OL Tra Thomas. (realistically the Phins can't get all three but lets be optimistic and hope they could sqeeze 2/3. One year later and all this hoopla, and this area is STILL the most important one area that STILL ... has not been fixed COMPLETELY. Vernon Carey needs to be placed back at his more natural position of Guard and let one of these guys come in and play Tackle.)

-----------------------------------------------

DE Chris Canty, ( this is the perfect end for the Phins 3-4 scheme, and a Parcells guy ! )

OLB Karlos Dansby, (Joey porter needs to have a twin to create a tandum and take off some pressure on his side, since teams next year are gonna be gunning for AFC's "Sack Master".)

ILB Bart Scott, ( the perfect piece to add next to Crowder, Ayodele is good but, adding this guy make the Phins 3-4 more complete. Plus, adding an extra MLB, is always a luxury to have look at the "90-Giants" they had Pepper Johnson, Harry Carson and another guy named Gary Reasons, who played a great role. New England also does the same thing, stacking up on linebackers - I think we should too)

We definetly need to re-shape the secondary and this year may be the perfect year to do so !

CB Phillip Buchanon (we need more speedy UM guys),
CB DeAngelo Hall,( how can you pass up on this guy ? )

FS Mike Brown or FS Oshiomogho Atogwe,( brown is more of a physical, "pop the snot out you" FS, Atogwe, is more of a "center feilder/ball hawk" type. Pick your poison. )

SS Sean Jones or SS Michael Boulware, (both of these guys remind me of former Cowboys Safety -Darren Woodson. They're tall, strong, physical and can pop the crap out of you. Yeremaih Bell is starting get up there in "saftey years", we need to replace him with someone younger and in thier prime.)

Hoping, that the Dolphins have enough cap space to buy (again, hopefully) half of these guys I have on my list .... look for them to perhaps trade down a notch on draft day
(to pick up more picks), and address most of their needs. Remember these guys were just 1-15 two years ago, so they're STILL rebuilding their team as well as their financial woes; from all their over paid players they've signed in the past. Knowing Parcells history ... he like's building TEAMS ... of loyal, obediant, players that will "die" for their coach. Don't expect Parcells to buy a bunch of Talented - "pre-madonnas", cuz it ain't happenin. So (I think) look for him to trade down, and draft O-line, D-Line (nose tackle) and secondary. Also, a tall, strong, possesion reciever. Dont be too surprised if he drafts a speedy half back too.

Jim Leonhard- he is the Wes Welker of defense
Devery Henderson- Bigger and better than anyone we have.

Armando, you are the man! Nice work! I hope the Herald's giving you a bonus for this one!

Hey miami guy ,are you on crack? From what i read on your post,you want to resign carey,bell and crowder,then sign at least half of all those free agents you mentioned.lol.we are around 25-28 mil under the cap.and don't forget you still have to sign at least 9 draft picks.where the hell are you going to all this money,from the money store?

I think we gonna take a low key approach with maybe one big name, give me

CB Ronald Bartell Rams
S James Butler Giants
G Stacy Andrews Bengals
C Jason Brown ( Thats my big name right there)
CB Bryant McFaddden Steelers

In order,

C Jason Brown (Ravens),
WR Bryant Johnson (49ers) and,
if we have enough cash for Asomougha, go get him. Haynesworth is a beast but, I'm not sure he's the right "character" guy for the 'phins.

With Jason Brown solid at C, Smiley and Thomas coming back, you sign Carey keep Satele as back up and of course Long,we're set on the Oline. Add to that OG Levitre or Herman Johnson 6-7 386 lbs guard out of LSU at pick no 87 in April and 'phins rock on OL.

B Johnson was a stud when he filled in for Boldin in '07. He's big like Bolding, Fitz and Breaston. the fact he didn't play much in '08 in San Fran says nothing- that team was a mess last year.

Joe- Margate

Kevin in Canada, sign Jacobs and trade Ronnie Brown?!? What does RB have to do to get the respect of fans like yourself?? He blew out his knee hustling down a stupid Cleo Lemon INT in a season in which at the time he had the most total yards for a back in the league on a team that could not beat the U. Then worked his tail off to get back and have a very solid year. It would not have been surprising to see a player not be game ready after that injury and he played in EVERY game. Jacobs is a beast, he is a freak of nature but keep in mind boss he does split carries with 2 other guys and usually is not in the game at the end. Ronnie Brown has been nothing but class since joining the Phins and if they even considered trading him to sign a guy guy like Brandon Jacobs I would be very surprised and incredibly disappointed.

The grass is always greener on the other side but Ronnie Brown was a great pick by that guy whose name I refuse to speak and is a superstar player for us. He was athletic enough to lead the Wildcat which was later adopted by most teams in the NFL. He always falls forward for the extra 2 yards and in my opinion is the best offensive player on the team by a lot.

boldin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Devery Henderson???? Are you serious.. That guy has bust written all over his forhead.. I wouldnt put him ahead of Ginn, Bess, Camorillo, and possibly even Brandon London. He drops even easy catches!

Armando,

You're so fuc*'in cool, I'm a better person for just typing this to ya.

THANKS FOR THE LIST !

Mark in Ottawa

I would say LB Karlos Dansby- a good Inside Linebacker able to make an impact,
Another is Nate Webster- He is from the U. and is a playmaker that's all they breed are playmakers. I also like Johnathan Vilma. We let too much of our impact hometown guys go to other cities.
FB Lorenzo Neal- Face it this guy blocks for champs. He did it for Ladanian Tomlinson whose numbers have by the way decreased by his departure and he made Mcgahee and McClain look good as well.
Also FB Tony Richardson, he did it for Priest Holmes KC, Larry Johnson KC, and also Thomas Jones this year for the Jets. Its all about the lead blocker for running backs.
WR- TJ houshmanzadeh, best pure wide receiver no play all attitude.
WR- Anquan Boldin- Big physical receiver a big need for the fins (Personally there is a big physical draft WR from Cal Poly who the fins should covet he's like 6'5)
DT- get some and toughness on that line it all starts up front to make the corners look good and thrive in a defense. I like Shaun Cody, and also take a chance on Tank Johnson
Add a few more ball hawks in that secondary I like Atogwe at Safety, and also FSU product Micheal Boulware another Florida guy who is not on the Dolphins roster. I'll say it again, FSU and Miami produce the best defensive players why does no one pay attention to this. I can give you 25 names easy of impact players from the U and FSU.
Some Offensive line help. It needs a tweak but not too bad. I would say add jordan gross, and get Donald Thomas back healthy for an improved line that can pull blocks and protect the QB.
LEts go FINS!!!!!

Baltimore C Jason Brown is 25, weighs 320, would be a huge help. So would Alex Mack in the draft, but signing Brown would also be a perfect fit and would free up that draft pick.

O. J. Atogwe is a playmaking S, would also be a huge help, but I'll bet he is re-signed or franchised. If not, he'd immediately be the biggest playmaker in our secondary.

I think this offseason will be similar to last. There will be NO big offseason free agent signings. Parcells has publically said that he wants to get a young group of guys and let them grow up together. Other than filling a few GAPING holes, that's what these guys did last year.

Other than re-signing YB and Carey, the list of FA will only serve to fill out the roster and add depth. 2009 will be a step back before a surge ahead in 2010.

Resign, SS Yeremiah Bell, T Vernon Carey, CB Andre Goodman.

Sign;

DE/OLB Terrell Suggs(26) - Nuff Said!
MLB Jonathan Vilma(26) - (Cut Crowder).
WR Antonio Bryant(27) - Avgs 15.3 yards per catch the past 6 seasons (Larry Fitz. only avg 14.0 over the past 5).
FS Oshiomogho Atogwe(27) - 85 Tackles(77 Solo),6 FF, 5 INTs last season.(Ed Reed;41 Tackles(34 Solo), 1 FF, 9 INTs).

Address other needs through the draft.

we need a number 1 WR and Antonio Bryant. could feel that need. a must is resign Yeremiah Bell and Vernon Carey . the rest we can get in the draft. the only other thing is wait for the redskins to cut jason taylor. the resign him there is your gem we are looking for.

Thanks Mando...I cannot wait for hot stove football.

I wonder if Tuna & Ireland go after RDE Canty to replace an aging Holliday.
Canty is a 26yo 6'7" 299lb beast already in a 3-4D. Seems the trifecta have a habit of going after the players that they brought in to Dallas.
Canty also would be more affordable than Suggs & Peppers. Plus Peppers plays in a 4-3D.

I say no on Albert Haynesworth. He will probably get tagged again, he is gonna be too expensive, and he has only played 1 full 16 game season so far, that being in his rookie year with the Titans in 02.

I agree with the other posts here about Rams FS Oshiomogho Atogwe, he is very good and his cost would be offset by not resigning Hill.
Then there is FS James Sanders, a very good young player to pluck from the enemy Patsies!

I also like Colts CB Kelvin Hayden (we play Indy in 09), he's young, makes plays, and holds his own with good size to match up on the big WR's.

At LB, like everyone I'm big on Dansby, but I really like Vilma (we play NO in 09) over Scott.
Scott benefits from Lewis, Suggs and the gang, plus will possibly cost more than Vilma the former 'Cane who'd love to be back in Miami. Falcons LB Micheal Boley (we play ATL in 09) is worth a look too.

The Steelers young G Chris Kemoeatu (we play Pitt in 09) really intrigues me, this kid is a road grader 344lb beast and at only 6'3 he can stand up DT's & NT's to clear out the middle for R & R.

From there I'd be sure to resign in order Carey, Bell, and Goodman, then think about Crowder if he is sensible with the terms. However I see Crowder bolting for more money than we'd give him, thus opening the door for one of the LB's mentioned above.

Then after that I'm excited to see what the trifecta brings us on the draft weekend.

Heath Evans, Junior Seau, Cameron Worrell, Chris Crocker, Travis Minor, Larry Izzo, Jamar Fletcher, Jeff Zgonina, Joey Harrington, Jesse Chatman, Sean Ryan just to name a few. Haha!

Pork Chop Womack from Seattle...we need him

Great job Mando! Love this stuff! Too many new names to do my homework right now. It's too early in the morning, I'm still trying to peel my eyelids open and keep from spilling my coffee. Anyway...we all know the premiere FA players wish list. You know..the fantasy football types. But I think the Trio's strategy will first be determining the Drafts position depth and if certain high quality targeted players will fall to us. Players that they are confident about drafting to meet some priority needs. Based on their assumptions that if they think they will not be able to attain certain targeted players and fill those needs through the draft then they'll go after those positions via FA. Thats my 2 cents ...for now.

Dansby, Jim Leonhard (guy is a hitter), Julius Peppers (still relatively young and very productive), Jeff Saturday (vet, but too old?), Antonio Bryant (a beast last year but is he a one year wonder?), Jermaine Phillips, Jason Brown.

But if you can get into the Trio's heads and find out what "they feel" are their first and second priorities then your a hero!

I'm just looking at this as a wish list and these are the players I would love to see Miami get their hands on. I'll be honest up front and say I don't know much about O-Line so don't kill me out there. BTW, I didn't list Haynesworth or Asomugha and I think we ALL would love to see one or both here. With all that, here we go:

Bertrand Berry - Played solid at Super Bowl and would be a good fit at DE for us.

Karlos Dansby - Wants to play here and would be a good compliment to our linebacking corps. Also relatively young.

Bart Scott - Take from one of the best 3-4 defenses out there. Would fit into the system fantastically.

Terrell Suggs - No comment needed

Jim Leonhard - This guy killed us and was great in the playoffs. Plays in a a similar system.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh - We need a good, strong, veteran presence on this team. Not a diva

Jordan Gross - No comment needed

Larry Izzo - ST Maniac!! We should have never lost him

Max Starks - We need bodies

Antonio Bryant - Another bigger veteran receiver. I'd be happy with either.

I'd love to keep most of out free agents. Particularly Carey, Bell, Crowder, Hill, Goodman. I KNOW this won't happen; but thanks Armando, this was fun!

Good morning Mondo -
First of all thanks for the list...

okay here is who i would like to add:

CB Dunta Robinson - wouldn't be as expensive as the Raider CB


OL - Brad Meester Height: 6-3 Weight: 295 - he's got the height - but maybe a lil light..with Tony's condition i think he could be a solid rotation player


CB Bryant McFadden - kid can play - and has a nasty side.

OL -Jeremy Newbarry - Height: 6-5 Weight: 315 - firts the criteria the trifecta is looking for

S Oshiomogho Atogwe - Maybe just a little bit of pipe dream...but Atogwe with Bell would make reciever shacking in their nikeys

WR Antonio Bryant - kid had a wicked catch on MNF - maybe what the trifecta hoped for when they signed that ernest kid

LB Karlos Dansby or LB Bart Scott - sign either or...Sugg is gonna break the bank...Scott would be awesome - and Dansby has a man crush on Parcells..

FB Lorenzo Neal - know Polite was a first down machine - but doesnt Tony want a competition at every position - bringing in Neal would create that.

Thats' all i got...what do you think?

Jabari Greer from Buffalo
Suggs from Baltimore

Our free agents.

I gave all my selections to Bill Parcells, so obviously I cant say who I want due to other teams bidding for them as well and we dont want to tip our hand. :D

Seriously though, Since Im not on the payroll, I cant see myself researching all those players to make an accurate opinion, but just choosing the obvious from the list and resigning our own keepers I would say:

DE Terrell Suggs
LB Karlos Dansby or J Peppers
CB Nnamdi Asomugha
WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh
c Jason Brown
LB L Izzo for our ST

Thats a very small list and those guys aside from Izzo would probably pretty expensive to land. If we can nab a couple of them I would be happy.

Bart Scott- Great work ethics
Jim leonhard- Has Heart
Nate Washington- Burning ability
Byrant Mcfadden- Tough Corner
Jordan Gross- The Guy is Freaken Monster
Kenechi Udeze- If healthy is very valuable
T.J. Houshmandzadeh- Speaks for itself

It's amazing how many of these people don't know what they're talking about...it's awful.

I love this exercise. We all pick that top free agents at every position. The reality is that the Dolphins will likely only sign 1 or 2 of the top players (last year: Wilford and Smiley and we lost out on Pace). The rest will be 2nd, 3rd and 4th tier guys as well as tons of ex-Cowboys. Young up-and-comers that are cap-friendly.

Most of the top free agents (Dansby, Atogwe, Suggs, Bryant, etc.) will be franchised.

We need to resign Bell, Carey, and Goodman. We need to sign the best available inside linemen in FA. Then bargain/value shop at other positions of need in FA. Use the draft to fill out the roster.

Ex-Cowboys -- DE Chris Canty! you heard it here first!

What about Jabar Gaffney from NE? He's young enough to have plenty of time left and has great hands and makes tough catches. Also someone like Suggs would be great.

GET THESE PLAYERS

CB Jamar Fletcher,Travis Daniels
S Cameron Worrell
DE Kevin Carter
DT Jeff Zgonina
LB Larry Izzo, Junior Seau
RB Travis Miner, Heath Evans
TE Justin Peelle
K Jay Feely
QB Joey Harrington
OL Seth McKinney

and bring me back!!!

boy, suggs would be nice. Toomer would make a fine addition.

every one looks at the bigtime $$$ players here's a list of not so big $$$$ players that would help us: LB Andra Davis, S Jim Leonhard, S Brandon McGowan, C Jason Brown, CB Jabari Greer, DE Chris Canty, G Steven Peterman, CB Dunta Robinson, CB Kelvin Hayden, S James Sanders, S James Bulter, TE L.J Smith, OT Ray Willis. these are some guys we should go after not guys like Peppers or Nmandi or Suggs, Scott too high priced. what we have to keep in mind id this is a 3 or 4 year plan we can't spend all of the salary cap space on 2 free agency periods. everyone can forget about an uncapped year cause it ain't gonna happen.

Personally,i feel the Dolphins biggest need is a very good NO 1 WR.However,saying that,i dont think the Dolphins should go for Houshmanzadah (Who i believe is good by the way),because of his age.Trading for Boldin sounds a good idea but when you really think about it,is he worth giving up a 1st and possibly a 3rd round draft pick for him? I would'nt want Miami to give up that much for him because Miami are still in the process of rebuilding and they need all the draft picks they can get.Miami should take care of other positions of need on players via free agency such as Bart Scott or Carlos Dansby (MLB),Nnamdi Asomugha or Dunta Robinson (CB) and Oshiomogho Atogwe (Safety). If that happens,then Miami MUST pick a Percy Harvin or a Jeremy Macklin with the 1st pick in the draft and hope that 1 of them becomes a very good NO 1 Receiver.After that,concentrate on drafting a good Centre and maybe another good MLB or NT in the 2nd round.

I think priority #1 is re-signing Y.Bell and V.Carey.

My number one would be to sign Dunta Robinson. He is still young and can make plays. He started his career very well, but recently had injury problems. However, b/c of that he will be cheaper than Asomugha or D.Hall.

I think Nate Washington could be a great addition. He hasn't been able to start b/c Holmes and Ward were starters in Pitt. But he needs to play more physical and go over the middle.

Either Karlos Dansby or Terrell Suggs. Both of these guys would be expensive....if I had to choose, I'd take Suggs. He creates havoc on the line. I'd rather draft a LB like James Laurnitus or Brian Cushing to replace Crowder. Or as a prior posted stated, try Roth at ILB.

WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh - need WR
WR Nate Washington - need WR
RB Derrick Ward - great RB
ILB - Jonathan Vilma - !
DE Terrell Suggs - !

Get rid of -- Ricky Williams and GINN

Draft - RB Knowshon Moreno and OLB !


i'm assuming the saints will let dan morgan go? he'd be a good risk to play an ILB spot, right?

i did want the cards to win nothing aginst pitt just like to root for the underdog when my dolphins are not playing.but card fans all the stuff being said about bad calls please if the calls or lack there of went your way you would not be saying anything about them be honest.so like the fab sports babe used to say SCORE MORE POINTS and you dont have to worry about the refs.sucks but true.

WR - Devery Henderson, burried under top WRs on Saints.
WR - Antonio Bryant, could be an elite, strong receiver.
Safety - Jermaine Phillips, young, strong and very good.
CB - DeAngelo Hall, young, athletic, take a chance for a big return on a small investment.

Mando,

CB Bryant McFadden from Pitt
WR Nate Washington from Pitt
LB Carlos Dansby (Cards will franchise him)
C Jason Brown from Balt
S James Butler from NYG
DT Colin Cole from GB

Dansby is more of a pipe dream for me, Airzona will probably franchise him or sign him..they have lots of cap room.

Both Butler and McFadden play in a 3-4 scheme like the phins. Both have superbowl experiance. Most importantly, they will be cheaper free agents then some of the other Safteys and CBs out there and are both under 30 years old. Parcells does not break the bank for high priced free agents free agents like Housh and Nambdi.

DT Colin Cole played in all 16 games, is over 330 pounds, and young..would be good depth at NT to help stop the run...and should be cheap.

I see Parcells paying a bit more for Jason Brown, his age and strength will be the reason...

I am guessing the tuna drafts linebackers and o-lineman this year...maybe one saftey and one wide receiver.

spt.larry izzo ol.max starks rb. brandon jacobs trade ricky for a 4th or 5th rd pick nate washingtion #2 rec.tj is not as old as everyone makes him out to be tj #1 rec. G. pete kendall ol.jason fabini.get rid of john beck pick up qb dan orlousky he really was not that bad for what he had to work with.and all the ones we cant say would be my first choice.

Quite a few of the guys on this list will be franchised, namely Nnamdi and Suggs. That will leave the free agent list fairly thin.

I know it's not Ireland’s way to trade away picks, however I do feel Boldin is a good investment. By that I mean receivers in the NFL generally take 2-3 years to develop. In drafting someone late in the first round, you are 1) taking the chance that he can transfer his game to the NFL, and 2) taking the time for him to develop him. I generally am not a proponent of taking receivers in the first round for these reasons. I think you can often find players in the second round on, while not taking on the risk of a bust which I think happen with receivers often in the first round. While there are few cases where guys have stepped in right away to play, this generally does not occur.
The Cardinals turned down an offer of a first round pick last year for Boldin, so the thinking is it will take more than that to land him. I would offer the Cardinals a 1 and a 3 this year, and a conditional 2 for 2010. If he does not meet incentives, it will be a 3rd round pick in 2010. This would leave the Dolphins with 2 picks in the 2nd round, where they can address needs and continue the youth movement. I would focus mainly on defense with both of those picks.

It sounds like Carey is all but gone. I think Miami's big free agent splash will be in landing. J. Gross from Carolina. He is young enough to give Miami bookend tackles for the next 7 years and more consistent in the passing game than Carey. I think you will see them be aggressive in bring back Larry Izzo to the team (as aggressive as a team can be for landing a special teams ace). He is a special teams force, which is something both Bill and Jeff value. I think they will agree to terms with Y. Bell and bring a veteran along the lines of Womack, Goff, or Kendall as a short term solution at right guard which will benefit the team in 2010 as well as bring in competition for Donald Thomas. You can never have enough depth down the middle as we saw this year.

It also would not be out of the question to make a run at Matt Birk who has the size they like for a center, and move Satele over to right guard, as he seemed to be over powered by nose tackles down the stretch. While Birk is older, he still has 2-3 solid years in him and the team can find and groom his eventual replacement later in the draft.
The team, and most 3-4 teams do not value the ILB position as much as 4-3 teams do, so unfortunately I don't see Crowder returning unless he lowers his demands for guaranteed money. After franchising Suggs and accommodating Lewis I don't think the Ravens will have the money to spend on Bart Scott and I see the Dolphins perhaps overpaying a little to get him. This will be necessary because the LB's in Baltimore have a strong bond and I think Scott would take a little less than market value to stay with the Ravens.

With both second round picks I would be looking on the defensive side of the ball to take best available at OLB as well as S/CB.
Roth was solid against the run as the season went on, however, it is clear his pass rushing skills need refining and the Dolphins need to be thinking about life after Joey Porter since they are building for the long term.
Look for the team to look for a NT to develop as well as competition for special teams in the form of LB's and secondary play on the second day.

Re-sign V.Carey, Y.Bell, and A.Goodman(*if affordable).

-S.Jones/CLE or O.Atogwe/STL would be an upgrade over R.Hill at FS
-K.Dansby to replace the overated Crowder
-A.Bryant would be a true #1 WR
-Asomugha/OAK and/or B.McFadden/PIT
-J.Miller/OAK as a special teams player the Dolphins actually put in a claim for him when he was released by the J***.

DE Antonio Smith- high motor guy with great pass rush and run stuffing ability

OL Duke Preston- Decent backup plus we need to get atleast one division rival player

S Jim Leonhard- great energy and could help a lot on special teams

WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh- possession reciever that miami is lacking

DT Shaun Cody- has great ability, with good coaching could turn out to be a good player

OL Brad Meester- proven center that miami been lacking

DT Tank Johnson- Comes from Dallas so he knows the system and fills a huge need

CB Allen Rossum- decent corner but will be a big asset in the retun game

Miami should also retain S Yeremiah Bell, T Vernon Carey, ILB Channing Crowder because they
are the core of what Miami wants to build on.

All these players will be a great addition to the dolphins can get them, and they wont cost
too much for the team.

TE Justin Peelle
S Cameron Worrell.
K Jay Feely
RB Travis Minor

Bryant McFadden from Pitts would be a HUGE upgrade for the FINS this season!! Trade Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams pick up Brandon Jacobs and JJ Arrington or Jacobs and Darren Sproles. Then sign Terrell Suggs, Bell, and Goodman. I do not agree with us picking up a Wide Receiver until Henne starts, because if Ginn had a QB that could throw the ball down the field with the type zip a Rothlesburger or a Flacco has on it he would be a big time receiver. During this past season Ginn routinely out ran Pennington's arm after his three step drop. Also Pennington relies on his short routes and quick predetermined places to throw the ball. So get off GINNS back he is a really good wide out with great hands but has to wait for balls thrown his way giving the Db's time to make up for the blown coverage. Just remember the NY Jets game when Pennington threw the ball and Ginn had to stop and come back 10-15 yards for Penningtons pass that guess what came up short!!! Sorry had to get that off my chest I am sick of hearing all this uncalled for Ginn bashing.

Chris j.nelson ,i couldn't agree with you anymore with how amazing that most of these people don't know what the hell they're taking about.1st-i don't know what part of not stating the obvious players like nhamdi o,haynesworth,suggs,gross,they don't understand.2nd-j.saturday.j,newberry,d.morgan,etc are all older or often injured players ,so please stop it.3rd-jason taylor is not coming back here [see 2nd].4rth-j.vimla? is to small 6-1 230 for tuna.5th the tuna and antonio bryant are not exactly good friends.

Some players I would like to see the fins pursue...

OL - Jason Brown, Max Starks

LB - Karlos Dansby, Bart Scott

WR - TJ whosyourmama, Antonio Bryant

DB - Jabari Greer, Dunta robinson would be good, but major dough.

DE - Peppers ans suggs obviously, but again prob too much money.

DT - DRAFT DRAFT DRAFT (big and mean)

as for the Draft, in the first round i'd like to see miami go after Duke Robinson. I heard he is badass !!! put him next to jake long and we have a solid young left side of the o-line for the next 10-15 years. He's also 6'5 340lbs. Also whoever said trade Ronnie Brown...come on are you kidding me ?? he could be the 2nd best back in football if we could put together a great offensive line. We'll see what happens though. Parcells will do his thing.

Dansby- Cardinals
Scott-Ravens
Peppers- Panthers
McQuarters-Giants
Henderson- SAints

Here are more examples of the insanity on here.trade ronnie brown and ricky,then sign b.jacobs and jj arrington,lol.sign kenechi udeze(hasn't been healthy since he entered the nfl),devery henderson(couldn't catch a cold),p.buchanen(coudn't cover my 88year old grandma).matt birk,pete kendell,etc are ready for aarp.Serious i couldn't make this up lol.

um..
encryption does not alert you to someone copying yer web text...

Some of you guys are actings like kids with this encryption thing. Let's just say if someone else cuts and pastes this list and I see it, I'll know they did it. If they acquire their own list and type it in, my encryption won't show on my screen. OK? Geez, get back to the point of the post, willya?

Justin Peele
Cameron Worrel
Jay Feely
Travis Minor

no explanation needed.

Here is one of my favorites from jeff:
"WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh- possession reciever that miami is lacking"
I guess Bess and Camerillo are speed receivers?

Get Haynesworth ( break the bank) he makes guys named Courtland Finnegan into pro bowlers ! He stops the run single handed.
I would love to add Asmughwhatever and Housh but dont see the Tuna spending all hid dough on two guys.
Dunta Robinson is a nice cheaper option.
Resign Y Bell and V Carey and draft best possible ILB ( hopefully Laurinitis )for future.

OL - Jason Brown
WR - Antonio Bryant
S - Atogwe
CB DeAngelo Hall or Dunta Robinson
LB - Suggs, Dansby or Bart Scott
DT - Tank Johnson

Here's more insanity,you can't see the tuna throwing all the dough on 2 guys ashoumhma and housh.but lets break the bank on 1 guy haynesworth.How about this one,sign tank johnson(yeah and maybe his arsenal of guns and ammo)lol. this is to much.

I'd love a lot of those guys listed but...

TJ Housh...would be my #1 target. A proven WR is hard to come by and the biggest glaring weakness to get to the next level.

Lots of quality LB's on this list. Peppers would make our D a monster. Dansby would be a great addition.

Dunta Robinson, CB from Houston, would be a nice youth/athleticism injection in the secondary.
