« 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:

S Jim Leonhard

THIS GUY IS A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH IN KILLED THE PHINS IN THE PLAYOFFS>>>> GET HIM!

You guys are really setting yourselfs up for disappointment. We are not going after the big names (Peppers, TJ. Housh, Asomugha, Suggs, Lewis, etc) because of either age, money or they will be franchised or resigned. The problem children (D. Hall, A. Bryant, T. Johnson). Remember A. Bryant was with the Cowboys while the Trifecta was there and no one made a move for him when he was out there last year. Same things with Hall after he was released last year.

I don't think we should sign any free agents. The players we have just need to try harder. It'sl ike they didn't even try,

The "no duh" names that probably won't happen because someone will break the bank:
LB Karlos Dansby
DE Terrell Suggs
CB Dunta Robinson

The coming-off-injury/distraction seasons players that would be great if at reduced prices:
OL Stacy Andrews
LB Mike Peterson
OL Marvel Smith

The perfect fit:
DE Chris Canty
S Oshiomogho Atogwe

Take a flyer:
OL Ray Willis

And I'm all for resigning Hill, Bell and Carey IF. Hill IF he's cheap, Bell if he's reasonable, and Carey if he's not crazy with demands.

Darren Sproles! Imagine what he can do in the wildcat formation. Sorry Ricky, you are out.
CB and a MLB too so we can aim OL in the draft.

I hear these two guys have tremendous potential: Jamar Fletcher and Travis Daniels

Lets' get'em!!

:}

This one is actually pretty easy.... whoever said Hall needs to give their head a shake.

Dunta Robinson would be a HUGE pickup... Jason Brown would be a HUGE pickup... Ditto Karlos Dansby....

Those 3 should be Miami's top needs, and they won't completely break the bank (although they won't be cheap either)... the rest can be addressed during the draft.

Oh and resign Bell and Carey... the rest can walk.

Jedivader,be careful because some of these posters will take you seriously and agree with you.

Depending on salary demands and if they play or are comfortable in the Dolphins systems', I'd like them to look at these guys.

S Jim Leonhard
OL Mark Tauscher
CB Dunta Robinson
S Matt Giordano
C Jeff Saturday
C Matt Birk
LB Napoleon Harris
LB Jonathan Vilma
OL Jon Stinchcomb
WR Bryant Johnson
LB Takeo Spikes
OL Pork Chop Womack
LB Michael Boley

No one is going to bite off you, Armando.

You can be absolutely sure of that.

This is just who i think the dolphins would consider. obviously we couldn't get all of them or even most of them but i wouldn't mind seeing any of them in a Dolphins unifom. i also tried to take out the people who we don't have a shot at getting to shorten the list

P- Ben Graham
S-Lawyer Milloy
CB-Domonique Foxworth
CB-Coery Ivy
LB-Bart Scott
LB-Terrell Suggs
WR-TJ Houshmandezedah
DE-Julius Peppers
WR-Darrell Jackson
S-Nick Ferguson
C-Jeff Saturaday
CB-Kelvin Hayden
LB-Mike Peters

LB-Karlos Dansby
S-Jim Leonhard

Their Armando, I did my homework. Some of the names are a bit out of reach but no harm putting them on the list. This list also helps pin point our needs: WR,Secondary,LB,O-Line, and maybe d-line. We'll see how it all plays out.

I feel strongly that Vernon Carey, Yeremiah Bell and Andre Goodman need to be re-signed. Vernon Carey especially, and I wouldn't even mind if they used the Franchise Tag on him.

With five picks in the first 4 rounds, I believe realistically we could go defense with all 5 picks. We are in need of youth at every position on defense aside from DE, where we spent high draft picks last draft and also have depth with veterans Starks and Holliday. As far as free agency, Karlos Dansby to me is the only upgrade over Crowder, so if he cannot be signed then the draft might be an option to fill that void. Jason Brown is a heck of a player and if this regime has given up on Samson Satele he should be considered. Also, of course all the obvious guys such as Suggs, Housh, Peppers and so on would be nice, but those types rarely reach unrestricted free agency.

My shopping list is:
OL - Vernon Carey & Max Starks
WR - Dante Hall & Amani Toomer (Ashley Lelie)
LB - Karlos Dansby & Dontarrious Thomas
CB - Kelvin Hayden & Renaldo Hill
DT - Mike Wright
NT - Albert Haynesworth
S - Yeremiah Bell

I would start by signing our own FA, because Carey, Bell & Hill are proved starters.
Haynesworth is our biggest target because there won't be available any real NT when we'll pick at draft and this team needs to close the front door of the defense.
As [Joe's HOT GF] noted, Dansby & Thomas could rejoin and play nice for our Dolphins.
Adding Wright adds depth and flexibility, while Kelvin Hayden may be a key piece to solve the rest of the defense.
It could be interesting to see who can cover Camarillo, Hall, Ginn & Toomer as receiver corps. Ok if this is too much to ask, Ashley Lelie is another player that may rediscover his potential in our roster.

On those saying Warner is better than Pennington, they might be right, but it would be stupid to enter another adaptation process for Kurt, so it's easy to figure he's staying in Arizona where he's more than ready for another pair of winning campaigns.

Get them ALL!

Warner is not by any means a better QB. Look at what Chad had to work with in comparison. Chad had Ted ranked #36 in the league but a better comp.%, ist down%, fewer int. and better over all passer rating. While Warner was throwing to Fitz and Boldin, ranked # 4 & 7 in the league.
Besides Parcells is about getting younger.

Which by the way is why half the picks many of you made will never happen. He's not going to sign a bunch of 35 yr olds to big contracts. Toomer, Lewis, D Hall, Warner....really? Not the way Parcells operates. Maybe one big name. The rest he cherry picks underacheiver. Look at what he did with this years roster. More of the same. Carey is gone. Probably Crowder too.

My Complete Wishlist

1. OL Jason Brown (Best Young Center in AFC)

2. CB Nnamdi Asomugha (keep Goodman too)

3. S Oshiomogho Atogwe (keep bell & hill, draft safety 4th rd)

4. LB Karlos Dansby

5. LB Bart Scott (draft at least 2 additional LBs)

6. Michael Vick (trade Beck-Vick can run the Wildcat)

7. Resign Carey


In the draft:

DE, LB, S, OL, TE (Draft Chase Coffeman!), & DT.

After draft, if available, consider trading 2010 picks for Boldin.

Well first off you have to start in house and that would mean re-signing Bell, Crowder, and Goodman and maybe Carey if the price is right. As far as the other teams UFA's I would start with the few good lineman that are available such as Jordan Gross and possibly adding a Jeremy Newbarry, Stacy Andrews and on the defensive side Chris Canty and Tank Johnson. Then I would try to beef up the LB core with an Angelo Crowell or a Mike Peterson. In the secondary I would go after a young Saftey like Sean Jones and sign a corner like dunta robinson or Dominique Foxworth at the right price. There is also a number of veterans that could be added if they are not looking for big pay days like a Bertran Berry, Ray Lewis, Phillip Buchanon, Brian Dawkins, and Wr's like Antonio Bryant and Devery Henderson. Then I think it should be a top priority to sign at least one of the top tier UFAs with Albert Haynesworth 1, Nnamdi Asomugh 2, Terrel Suggs 3, Jonathan Vilma 4, Julius Peppers 5, Karlos Dansby 6 Leroy Hill 7. The skill positions such as WR's DB's and adding a Skat back to go along with Ronnie and Ricky can be adressed in the draft. Although I am against drafting Darius Heyward-Bay as ESPN experts project the dolphins taking with the #26 pick overll. I am against taking any receiver in the first rounds that does not have the last name Crabtree, Harvin or Maklin.

http://myespn.go.com/blogs/afceast/0-5-15/Wake-s-NFL-arrival-might-help-you-place-the-name.html great article on Cameron Wake

Hey mexdolphn,i think you had to much hot sauce from your tacos and dana t,is that it,that's all you want .Lets throw haynesworth,jordan gross.suggs ,while your at.It's not your money!!!! geez111

Sorry guys. I'd love to read through and actually critically think about your thoughts, but about 98% of them are ridiculous and required no thoughts. I swear some people went through the list and just started naming players who are good in the game madden! I havent read many that actually think about our needs before they start posting. I'm sure some of you will just get mad about this comment, but the 2% of you out there that actually put work into what they wrote im sure understand exactly what im talking about...

CB Bryant McFadden
ILB Karlos Dansby
NT Colin Cole
S James Butler
C Jason Brown

Dansby is a pipe dream, b/c Arizona will probably sign or franchise him, but I put him down anyway. Butler and McFadden play in a 3-4 scheme and have super bowl experiance...and both should be cheaper than some of the other big name free agents. Brown would be a good back-up for Ferguson.... and Jason Brown would be the big free agent signing.

Tuna will not break the bank for high priced free agents so these guys should come cheaper. What do you think Mando?

Michael Clayton! Chucky was a fool with this kid. He's still has the physique & talent. Just no confidence since Gruden forced him to gain all that extra weight for no reason after a ROY season. A lot of young big break-out candidates at safety. Atogwe, Sensabaugh, maybe Sean Jones maybe Leonhard.

We can use that to get younger in the secondary. Then sign Jeff Saturday & let thomas & satele compete for guard spot opposite smiley. I know he's old, but at O line we could use some smarts & veteran leadership. Address LB in the draft with a good amount of strong candidates to play ILB. *please let us get lauranitus* Then resign goodman & pick a future prospects in the later rounds at CB.

We need to build in baby steps NOT put too many eggs in one basket like peppers, housh, jacobs, nnamdi etc. Only exception...Boldin. I think he's a perfect addition to our tiny speedy shifty WR core. Tough, physical, big, great hands. Penny will throw to him all day.


I would like to see them continue to build through the draft. Maybe sign a player or two to add some depth at positions.

I sya build from the draft and leave FAs alone except for 1, 2 the most. We need youngins!

Stay away from FAs, maybe 1 or 2 at the most. We need the young talented folk!

WOW, I'm getting annoyed reading posts from people pointing out how we're all pipe-dreaming. Take a look at the posts idiots! Most of them say "I WOULD LOVE IF THEY..." or something of that nature. Those of you who are so intelligent are saying YOU know what Parcells, Ireland, and Sparano are going to do??? This was supposed to be an exercise in fun and just like letting a kid go unsupervised in a candy store. It's supposed to be fun. Instead, like always, there are some know-it-alls running around wanting to point out obvious facts. We KNOW Parcells doesn't usually break the bank of free agents. Between 3 major Florida papers, this has only been pointed out 1,647,512.95 times. Again, the question was who would you LIKE to see them get. End of story. Get a life, a wife, or a gun and get rid of yourself so that the rest of us can enjoy this off season and make wild speculations we know won't happen simply because it's fun.

"I was too tired to type it all in today" come on Armando. You need to give tasks like that to an intern. me me me pick me

All great suggestions. Dolphin fans are really watching free agency.

NT - Colin Cole (6-1, 330)
C - Jason Brown (Pratices against Ngata; Tough)
MLB - Karlos Dansby, Bart Scott
S - Atogwe, Jim Leonhard
Resign - Carey!

The rest we can fill in the draft!

maybe this time could we could get Pete Kendall!!! there are some great secondary names out there & a couple of WR's too!!! I still say put Ginn on the trading block to see what we could get!!! Go after Gaffney from the patsies & Devrey Henderson from the saints!!! then go after Nnamdi Asomugha from oakland!!! In Bill we trust, GO FINS 2009!!!

Oh Travis Daniels is available...we should scoop him back up!

NOT!

Housh. is NOT a #1 WR. He is an excellent possession guy but not a home rum WR that we desperately need. Sure Bryant had problems with the Tuna, but so did Terry Glenn. People grow. As for Tank Johnson - Tuna has never shied away from a problem child if he think he can make a positive impact on that player both on and off the field.

Hey finfanrod,did you notice in armandos blog ,him stating to find some free agents that would fit into miami plans WITHOUT MENTIONING THE OBVIOUS BIG NAME FREE AGENTS LIKE ALBERT HAYNESWORTH,NNAMDI ASOMUGHA,TERRELL SUGGS,ETC,yet almost every poster mentions them or older players who DON'T FIT IN TUNA'S PLANS or even trading ronnie brown and ricky williams,some of these posters don't get it.so give me a break with your righteousness .If you read carefully.most of them say to resign carey,bell,goodman and then sign at LEAST 2 big name free agents and then some lesser free agents,geez

LB Mike Peterson is a respected vet who might have some gas left in the tank. He'll definitely benefit from a change and I think he wants to stay in Florida.

I like Dominique Foxworth from ATL. They picked him up from Denver early in the year and he learned their system relatively fast and played well. Also won't cost you a ton.

DeAngelo Hall
Bart Scott or Karlos Dansby
Amani Toomer or Tj Houshhhh or Micheal Clayton
Julius Peppers
and resign everybody except Crowder

Suggs would be a priorty, if they are willing to pay for an unproven Pace then Suggs is a no brainer and only26. Jason Brown g/c only 25.How about cb Jabari Greer steal him from within our divison age 26. Doubt we can afford all 3 but they cover a need and are young. With this said we must sign Bell and Carey. Finally at wr Brandon Jones starting to blossom but often injured and Brandon lloyd could come chip.

MEangelo hall on a bill parcells team? NOT!!!

It's interesting the way the UFAs list lines up with the Dolphin needs... There are 67 offensive linemen on the list. 67 seems like a lot and is 13 more than any other position followed by linebackers at 54 and cornerbacks at 46. Those three positions have 46% of the UFA market and are three of our need positions. It makes me wonder if the Dolphin brass did not set themselves up for FA this year with the moves they made last year. Pretty damn good planning if indeed they did.

It points to nose tackle in the draft. There are 28 on the UFA list but the good ones are so hard to come by that I doubt other teams will let a space eater go. We may see a push for OL, LB and CB in FA while NT and WR will be addressed in the draft. Parcells notoriously hates drafting WRs early so if a big body NT is there when we pick at 25 that could be where we are going. If Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy or Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh are there we’ll pick either one.

I'd say:
K. Dansby
a solid WR like D. Henderson
Get other WR through draft if we are lucky enought to get P. Harvin.... he knows the Wildcat formation... he can line up anywhere and we saw how successful desean jackson was and I would rate Harvin higher than D. Jack.
S. Leonard

I dont see trifecta going after big names with high price tags

trade QB beck he is not an experienced NFl QB he is not helping Henne's growth... bring in vet QB thats fits system & or draft qb late in draft
cut WR woe-f-word

YES I DID NOTICE THAT!!! Did YOU notice the rest of what was said? Players in a similar system, players with makeup Miami typically likes? Haynesworth and Asomugha were specifically named and while some did mention them, for the most parts ppl stayed away from that. And again, IT'S FOR ENTERTAINMENT. The day Parcells gives half an ant fart what my opinion is on the players he should get, I'll be a really happy man. The point was don't just sit there and criticize for the sake of making noise. I didn't notice a list with your name on it. It might have been there, but I didn't see it. YOU tell me you don't want to see Haynesworth, Asomugha, Suggs, Peppers, etc. on this team. Of course you would if you're a fan. Will it happen? NOT A CHANCE! But it is nice to dream no? Just like those hoping the Dolphins pick Percey Harvin in the first round. Probably not, but it's nice to just throw it out there. So again, chill out and realize what this whole thing was. Nobody's saying what they WILL do. just what they'd like to see.

Hey patrick,gerald mcCoy and n. suh aten't in this years draft.They both returned for their senior seasons.FINFANROD ,the debate over who miami should get is to be smart and realistic.WE ARE NOT PLAYING MADDEN FOOTBALL.I understand what your saying,but lets keep it in perspective.I love the dolphins,but some of these posts are insane.

nj phin fan,

I'm not trying to spark a debate with you. My point is that we're all looking at this list and stating wishes. I will openly admit I have no idea who if anybody they will go after in free agency. If I were to guess, maybe one or two players that will make us drool and probably a few that none of us really know anything about. However, it doesn't hurt to state wants. I'm still waiting for that flamethrower I put on my Christmas list 20 years ago! Again, I get what you're saying too. But it was asked to list players you'd like to see them get. I don't think anyone actually thinks those wants will be what ends up happening. So peace and all that and let's move on ok?

D Man Canada weighs in with the goods. Here is the list of UFA’S we should look at :

FALCONS – FOXWORTH CB – We can never have enough corners and with the chance of losing one or two to free agency in an already weak area he would be a great fit

RAVENS – J. BROWN C – Obviously even though I love the guy, Satale isn’t strong enough to be a starting center in this league. Time to move him to career back up.

SUGGS, LEWIS, SCOTT – Any one of these three backers is definitely a help to any organization

CINCI – TJ has always been a pro, and still has wheels. Id bring him in now and start to get him aquainted with Penington and Henne.

We always need line help and this year is no different. JORDAN – CAR, SATURDAY – INDY, RUNYAN AND THOMAS – PHILLY would all be great proven linemen to have on your roster whether its for playing time or helping develop the young guys. Could you imagine what Long could learn from a guy like John Runyan ? He would be unstoppable.

Lastly, we must resign Bell and Carey. These two must not leave the organization. Consistant tackle play is hard to find and is there a better story than how Bell made the league ?

Anyways, that’s how the D Man sees it. Until next time, enjoy the fun in the sun..

Canada out !

If you actually read some of these posts,their are fan's who truly believe besides signing our own free agents ,that miami is also getting at least 2 of haynesworth,nnamdi,suggs gross,etc. and then some lesser fa's. I can go back to many of posts that agree with what i have stated about some of the insane suggestions on this blog,peace on and all that.

Here I'll list players that they should go after by group

CB; 1. ASOMUNGHA
2. JASON CRAFT
3. DAUNTA ROBINSON
SAFETY;
1. ATOGWE
2. JIM LEONHARD
3. BRIAN DAWKINS
4. RESIGN BELL
WR;
1.NATE WASHINGTON
2. T.J. HOUSH
3. JUSTIN MCCAREINS
4. SHAWN MCDONALD

OTHER;
DE; SUGGS
LB; CROWDER
OL; MAX STARKS, JASON FABINI

If Miami can land at least 4 of these guys... we can almost lock a 1st round win next year..... Oh yeah.... Trade for BOLDIN!!!!

1.Bart Scott Ravens, better inside linebacker than C. Crowder.
2.Julius Peppers Panthers, very good pass rusher or OLB Karlos Dansby Arizona. If Dansby is signed instead of Peppers, then Roth can be moved to inside linebacker where I feel he is better suited.
3.CB Nnamdi Asomugha Raiders, very good corner and I'm tired of Will Allen.
4.Resign Yeremiah Bell(great tackler),Vernon Carey(solid lineman) and Andre Goodman(good defender).
5.OL Jason Brown Ravens, very good young center.
6. The Bidwells are not going to give RFA Anquan Boldin a big contract with all the money they're paying Fitzgerald, so the "Tuna" should only have to give up one his second round picks plus a four to get him in uniform.

They're a few big name players out there but these are my sleepers. these are the ones i would go after immediately since they wouldn’t cost too much. The only big name must is T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

Cleveland Browns: S Sean Jones
6'1" - 220lbs. Good strong safety. i think he would flourish on a strong defense like the dolphins. instant improvement in the secondary.

Cincinnati Bengals: WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh
he's a pro-bowl WR. no explanation needed.

Dallas Cowboys: DE Chris Canty
6'7" - 310lbs. Already plays 3-4 defense. perfect size and fit.
this player is a must, we need someone like this on DL.

Green Bay Packers: OL Mark Tauscher
Good solid O-line tackle. I would let Vernon Carey go.

Indianapolis Colts: S Matt Giordano (Special teams)
Good size, speed and a good tackler.

Oakland Raiders: CB Justin Miller
had a good career with the jets.

Pittsburgh Steelers: LB Andre Frazier
6'5" - 245lbs - good size and i bet he developed his skills
along side the Steelers starting linebackers.

I would go after a big name corner like Nnamdi Asomugha.

MATT ,can the "at least 4 miami can land " be n.asomugha,otogwe,suggs,housh.? O yeah and also trade for boldan.If it is..that's it?lol MIKE,see MATT above.CARLOS,why is chris canty a must ,when you already have holliday,langford,merling,starks,and a developing lionel dotson already at de in mia's 3-4.wow

Get every available 'Cane. How fired up would they be to play together in the NFL.

Offensive: We need top notch Wide Receivers who will go after the ball, not wait for it.
T.J. Houshmandzadeh
Bryant Johnson

Defense: Ray Lewis
He's got some age but obviously can still play the game at an extreme level.


Bengals-WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh-A
Eagles-S Brian Dawkins-A++
Ravens-LB Ray Lewis-A+
Ravens-DE Terrell Suggs-A+
Jaguars-S Gerald Sensabaugh-A-
Patriots-WR Jabar Gaffney-B
Bucs-CB Phillip Buchanon-A
Bucs-S Jermaine Phillips-A
Redskins-CB DeAngelo Hall-A+
Bucs-WR Antonio Bryant-A


i think 2 of our biggest concerns are WR and secondary, overall the defense needs some tune ups to make us tougher.... give Joey a sidekick !... We need to draft a CB with alot of potential to become a lock down corner,as far as offense we need a big time WR to ease Teddy into that spot in a year or two i still think he can reach his full potential, if we sign T.J or possibly trade for Cardinals WR BOLDIN then Camarillo and Bess will really be more effective, with all the double coverage off of them, and Ricky and Ronnie are going to do even better with a more effective passing game.

P Shane Lechler (seriously). There are plenty of obvious names being listed and relisted here but this guy's name did jump out at me. The best NFL punter might get tagged by the Raiders but he's on the list for now.

I also noticed you can practically field an entire team from the former Dolphins that are on the list (not that you'd want to)

I agree with picking up Bart Scott or Dansby but there will is alot of depth at ILB in the draft; we need TJ Houz because WR are hard to draft for. Adding a FA starting corner would help. Signing Jason Brown (center) would allow the team to move Satele to G for more depth at that position.

CB- Jabari Greer (Buf), Dunta Robinson (Hou), Kelvin Hayden (Ind), Ron Bartell (Stl)

OL- Jason Brown (Bal), Joe Berger (Dal), Stephen Peterson (Det), Elton Brown (Arz)

LB- Andre Frazier (Pit)

DE- Chris Canty (Dal), Antonio Smith (Arz)

Parcells is going to continue to build the team with young talent as he did last year. That means he probably won't sign anyone over 28 unless he has a personnal connection with them. Aside from the obvious big names that everyone is going to be after (Haynesworth, Asomugha) the Dolphins will target players to fill their biggest holes which are WR, OL, and DB. Of course I'm sure Parcells will look to find another pass-rushing LB to compete with Porter and newly-signed CFL two-time defensive player of the year, Cameron Wake. Of the O-line, the only noticable name is Jason Brown. Not sure if the Dolphins will actually even target any O-line in FA because they added alot of decent depth in last year's draft and I'm sure they will look to continue that trend. As for WR, the Dolphins need a big-time play maker and I only see two that fit that description. There's TJ and Antonio Bryant both are the big, physical receivers that Parcells likes. I think TJ might be too old though, while Bryant is 27 coming into his prime and coming off the best season of his career where he caught 83 balls for 1200 yds and 7 TDs. Don't forget he is a hometown kid either. I like him the best in terms of FA receivers. I think Bryant Johnson under-achieved big time in his first season as a starter with the 49ers. As for DBs there is plenty of young talent out there and I trust Parcells will find it. Some of the names that catch my eye though are Atogwe, Bryant McFadden, and Robinson(but he gets dinged up too much). Also I wouldn't be suprised if Parcells made a move for Bart Scott or Karlos Dansby, both are play-makers at the ILB, both have played in a 3-4 and 4-3 scheme making them very versatile which makes them even more valuable. Terrell Suggs would also de a terrific aquisition at OLB, he is a freak of a pass-rusher and he is just 26 years old.

Warner is not an option. If he doesn't stay with Arizona, he is going to retire simple as that. He's too old to be looking for a new home and new team.

- I will like to Dolphins to first go out and get a number one receiver because T. Ginn is not a number one receiver more like a number two. (WR Amani Toomer, WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh or WR Justin McCareins)
- They also need a shut-down corner like CB Nnamdi Asomugha, CB Bryant McFadden or CB R.W. McQuarters. Will Allen is pretty goood but undersized
- Keep Y. Bell (Great Player) and sign S Oshiomogho Atogwe, S Chris Brown or S Rodney Harrison.
- Add DT Shaun Cody, or DT Darwin Walker because Jason Ferguson need some help
- LB Karlos Dansby, LB Takeo Spikes or LB Suggs to replace M. Roth (he did a decent job this year but Suggs it natural)

Luis
-

I would call Vernon Carey a must re-sign, and I would hope to keep at least two out of the trio of Bell, Hill, and Goodman, with Bell being one of them.

Then:
SS - Leonhard - active on D and ST, young
LB - Bart Scott and Karlos Dansby - tough players in their prime
C - Jason Brown - young and big
WR - Nate Washington, and to a lesser extent Jabar Gaffney. I would absolutely take Boldin if it can be done for no more than a 2nd rounder.

Leonhard and Brown could be huge for us.

Im late posting this but I hope you still get to review it and use some of your influence to write columns that will plant the seeds in the Tuna's Head to get my UFA wish list going in orger they are:
1a.LB Ray Lewis - Yeah not of Ideal age but who can argue adding him, its a reach and he doesnt like the 3-4 but still its RAY!
1b.DE Julius Peppers - Wants to move into a 3-4 scheme to maximize his skill set to be great not just good. Also Parcells kinda guy!!
2.WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh - Not a #1WR but a legit threat no less, will inject some much needed attitude and add a new level of inner-squad competition.
3.CB Nnamdi Asomugha - Can play with any receiver in the league, big physicall Parcells mold type CB, much needed help opposite W. Allen.
4a.S Yeremiah Bell - Self made impact player, secondary captain of the AFC EAST Champions, needs to be retained to maintain continuity and chemistry in much improved secondary.
4b.DE Terrell Suggs - Impact player, Sack Machine, Attitude Much needed pass rush help would play outside opposite Joey allowing Roth to move inside and take advantage of his stoutness against the run.
5.ILB Channing Crowder - Works as an "essential part of the whole" that is the Dfense. Lacked big plays, but every player cant be the impact guy, rush defense noticibly suffered while he was injured. Relatively healthy, good citizen.
6.DT Tank Johnson - Not too long in the tooth, can play the "3" technique, some baggage yes but effective player.
7.OL Max Starks - Solid OL can play RG or RT, more physicall type Parcells guy stronger than Vernon Carey.
8.CB Phillip Buchanon - Stronger than Gooden, Can play press covers 2 and 3, will play up and over head in South Florida.
9.RB Heath Evans - Can be converted to FB will be the verstile threat at both #3RB and #1FB and provide vialbe special teams help, will work as excellent lead blocker in next year's modified WILDKAT O!
10.WR Antonio Bryant - Physical WR Can run the inside post better than G. Camarillo

I think we should push for terrell suggs. he would compliment joey porter well on the other side. Also I think Bryant McFadden would add some good cover and toughness. Maybe go after carlos dansby to play that middle with channing crowder. Housmanzadeh would be nice, but im sure GM thinks that.

Look for the dolphins to do what the patriots have done to us for years. To sign players from teams they have faced a few times, are familiar with, which they believe fit their system. They will not be looking for big money stars. If they do not sign familiar players they will want size, youth, and toughness.

Resign- Bell, Goodman, Carey

Do not resign- Crowder, Hill

Familiar Players

Patriots- FB Heath Evans, S James Sanders

Ravens- C Jason Brown,S Jim Leonhard (may be too small), LB Ray Lewis (right price), LB Bart Scott,DE Terrell Suggs (right price)

Cowboys- DE Chris Canty

Jets- LB Eric Barton(stop gap)

Size, Youth, Toughness

Houston- CB Dunta Robinson (youth)

Steelers- CB Bryant McFadden (tough), OL Max Starks (size and youth), WR Nate Washington (youth)

Titans- DT Albert Haynesworth(size, youth, toughness) worth breaking the bank for.
