Agent: Dolphins working hard to sign Bell

A couple of days ago I asked which of their own unrestricted free agents the Dolphins should try to lock up next, now that Vernon Carey is in the fold. And a whopping 83.2 percent of the 3,373 respondents -- some as far away as Guam and Australia and Israel -- said it should be Yeremiah Bell.

The Dolphins are apparently in agreement.

During his weekly appearance on local television station WSVN-7, agent Drew Rosenhaus said he's met several times with the Dolphins during the current scouting Combine in Indianapolis with the goal of striking a deal for Bell.

"I believe the Dolphins have targetted Yeremiah Bell as a guy they need to sign," Rosenhaus said. "He's one of my clients. I've been in discussions with them throughout the week. I believe we'll work very hard. It's too hard to say whether or not we'll get a deal done. We're still working at it. But certainly we've been in discussions."

Rosenhaus lives in South Florida and represents a handful of Dolphins, including Renaldo Hill, another unrestricted free agent, and receiver Ernest Wilford, whose future with the team is uncertain given his three total catches in 2008.

But while Rosenhaus did not mention Hill during his segment, he talked about a renewed optimism that Wilford will remain with the team.

"If you asked me this question two weeks ago I would have said it's very unlikely," Rosenhaus said of Wilford staying with Miami. "But my sense is the Dolphins are looking at the free agent market and it's not that great. And they invested quite a bit of money in Ernest. He's a hard worker. He's a talented guy.

"Last year didn't go the way it was planned. But I would no longer be surprised if Ernest Wilford is back with the Dolphins ... He's been over at the facility working out. He would like to come back. Hopefully he gets that opportunity, we'll find out soon."

As something of a Dolphins insider, Rosenhaus is convinced he knows what the Dolphins are going to do with their No. 1 pick this April. [BLOG NOTE: Nobody knows except maybe Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland and maybe not even them because it is way too early.]

Anyway, Rosenhaus seems certain Miami is going with a wide receiver No. 1.

"The Dolphins are definitely, in my opinion, going to take a receiver with the No. 1 pick," he said. "There's too much talent there ... Dolphins fans, this is your year to get a receiver in the first round even at No. 25."

One wonders if it has dawned on Rosenhaus that if the Dolphins go with a wide receiver in the first round, as he seems confident they will, the client he also seems hopeful can stick around, might get whacked as a result.

If the Dolphins draft a receiver No. 1, adding to a corps that includes Ted Ginn Jr., Greg Camarillo, Davone Bess, Brandon London and Wilford, the player initially at the bottom rung of that ladder would be, you guessed it, Wilford.

How ironical, as one player told me once.

Oh, one more thing: Rosenhaus is also the agent for recently cut running back Fred Taylor. He confirmed Taylor will visit with the Buffalo Bills, a Dolphins AFC East rival, sometime this week.

Cardoza. Cardodza. Even when they went 1-15 they lost more than half those games by a TD or less they were always in the games. By the way who do you like?

HEY MENACE ,what"s your problem ? That post at 7:47 am was not me , i didn't get up until 8:00 am ( if that's what your responding TO ) This is my first post ( very busy this morning) I thought we were bros. NOW if that was you this morning and then responding to your own imposter post then go " F " yourself . If that's the way its going to be ,you f'n got it. The same goes for the " Fan "

I Like miami but i refuse to be a fool .for many years now they keep changing and make the fans excpect less from them to the point that you are almost proud fan of 1-15 record and trying to find a silver lining there.it's very amazing what level of crab football now some think it's great.

Far from great but better shape than Saban or Wanstat or however you spell his name.

nj phin fan.we saw post by you at 11.53.come on man be a man and admit it .it's oky to be on blog all day long.

You can guys can hate on Rosenhaus all you want, but I watch Sports Xtra religiously and Drew is usually right on about 75% of what he says. The other 25% is wishful thinking for his clients like the Wilford comment. Aside from his hidden client agenda, you all need to remember he is a Dolphin fan at heart. The Fred Taylor to Buffalo doesn't make much sense considering Lynch is a premier back and Fred Jackson compliments him very well out of the back field. We NEED Bell back as he is the best playmaker in our secondary.

Ok Mr.Finest now you are starting to raise your STANDARDS toward the dolphins and thanks to me?in the end we need a very good team not ORCHESTRA talk and make the dumb among us fans dumber.

cardoza,

The dolphins have a harder schedule next year, but I think we will be up to the task...especially if we upgrade and get tougher on the o-line and d-line...also I think that some of the teams that we play next year might not be as good as people expect (tampa, jacksonville, new orleans, houston)

Also, there is a completely different group of guys running this team than in the past... You can't predict how we will do based on the past failures

Also Be optimistic things are not as good or bad as it may seem."I was mad when I notice I had dog S--- on my shoes until I seen a Man with no shoes

Soulja , don't waste your time . Cardoza is really cuban menace . HE's also Dol-fan finest ,cardza , finfans and imposter nj phin fan ( me ) That's all cuban menace pretending to be different posters, while talking to himself. That's his thing . Today i guess, he woke up on the f'n wrong side of the bed.

Dol-fan finest,

good point...Alright, I realize my logic here is skewed and I'm halfway kidding, but people expected us to win 3 or 4 games last year and we won 11...Now people are saying we will win 6 or 7 this year so we should end up being, what...14-2...haha

NJ Phin,

the whole imposter thing is too much for me...I can't decipher who's pretending to be who, so I just respond to everything that isn't absolutely ridiculous

I Agree with you souljahbeat but when you hear orchestra talk and you see no enough money spent for real impact players and you see the sport media not asking any Q or get any real news. you know that the dolphins think the fans are just happy with a team that wins about 6-9 games which i call the record of wins for the dumb and dumper.

Not spending big money on "impact players" is a good thing...thats what this administration is all about...finding hidden talent and building through the draft...I like that we can win with guys that nobody's heard of...what about the no-name defense from back in the day?????

nj phin fan is one dumb fan.why you say i am menace just cause i have different views than yours and i am not any of those names you said i am .last thing you sound like mr bungle yourself.

2-14

First of all "NJ FAN" chill this is dol-fan not part of your stupid beef with these guys up here i'm chillin and just talkin about my fins so whom ever your beef is with keep it there. I did say the phins would make play-offs only when they got Chad. now they would be there but just miss it. maybe tied and lose the tie breaker

i think we need bell and Goodman back

i think we need bell and Goodman back

when i say SPEND some money on impact players imean just one or two but think that you are going any where with no NAME players is pipe dream.balance is word.

MARC G your Dreaming YOU don't believe that S...

To all the other teams and fake"a--" DOLPHIN fans" all the REAL fans has to say is AFC EAST CHAMPIONS "HI HATERS"

Now WE defend OUR CHAMPIONSHIP BELT

5-11 sound more real

wow y'all should read all the $#!% being posted today... u sound like a bunch of jet fans

Yogo get some since of humor or some P---- lighten up a little not that serious Cardoza I know"some fans are sure dumb" LOL really LOL

FSU Dolphin YOU'RE NOT LYING WITH FANS LIKE THIS WHO NEEDS ENIMIES

ill say wat i said last yr at this time we will go at least 8-8 i know a big part of our success was an easy schedule but we beats some good teams ( pats, bolts, ect.) that was a warm up yr. this yr. we'll have chemistry and we'll be bigger faster and stonger, so we'll hang in there

Damn, whats with all the dolphins haters posting on here? I sure as hell don't go read and post on all the jets and pats blogs...I'm a season ticket holder and I think the dolphins have a good chance at holding down the afc east title, especially if we get a good center (jason brown, or alex mack) and someone big in the middle of our d (ilb or nt)

hey souljah,

u should send me a ticket
spred the wealth and i've never been to a miami gm

sped the wealth souljah, send me some jax tickets if its at jax i've never been to a pro game ( or ATL)

i was going out and i see some DUMB signed with my name.every one i am not on this blog untile friday and any one sign CARDOZA THAT IS NOT ME

wtf it wouldn't let me post

Believe it or not, I actually think we should draft Andre Smith. Yes he had a bad combine but we can whip him into shape and then trade him. Maybe we could trade him for a position player for a position we don't end up drafting.

Plus, he will lose some weight or fat during camp because it is so hot in Miami.

instead of WR lets get Jared Cook at TE he can play some WR and could be drafted in the 2 or 3 round BTW he was a beast in the combine

fsudolphins,

only got tickets to the home games...the dolphins do play in j-ville this year tho! You're not missing much, its kind of depressing going to dolphins games, there are always so many fans from the other team there

Bungle,

I don't think we would touch Andre Smith...Parcells isn't much for guys with character issues and we've already got 2 high priced tackles

FSU,

I agree Jared Cook did kill it at the combine, but we're pretty set at TE too, fasano and martin accounted for most of our receiving td's last year

Phin, its okay to be resting a severe hamstring injury for a few MONTHS when you've been already drafted , but not when you are going to miss all your workouts ( including almost the whole lb workout at the combine) leading UP to the draft. He's been projected around the 12-17 area. You don't think he can drop down 10 spots because of this ?n( he had some questions already ) I do.

so give me your ticket for one game .is that much to aske?please give it to me.please please.come on ,give it to me.

don't give your ticket mr.bungle.give it to me and i will thank you big time for it so give it to me please please please.

souljah,

im probably gonna go to the jaguar gm cause it real close and cheaper also i know we don't need a TE but he could be a physical receiver or we could upgrade from martin and move martin out either way it would add the kind of receiver we need to the team

lol way to impersonate me when u can't even get the name right dumb@$$ it was probably mr. bunghole

sorry guys, I'm going to all the home games...thats why I copped the tickets

the Raiders are the best!!!!!! they score more goals than anyone in the NHL

FSU,

quit begging for tickets get a job and BUY YOUR OWN!!!!

i thought you don't need all of them so i asked for one .is that much to ask from follow fan ?BTW i can clean your house for the ticket.

lol its funny reading others impersonate u and way to go u finally got it right

souljah,

i don't want any of your tickets because i hate driving for 6 hours and i can't afford it thats y i said i was wanting to go to jax or atl

enough of the bs get back on football

I agree, all these impostors are confusing...
