Ferguson: 2010 a go if recovery goes well

Jason Ferguson has already begun his rehabilitation following surgery to repair a right quadricep injury. He's been doing his rehab every morning at Dolphins camp. And that's pretty important because the veteran nose tackle says he wants to return to the Dolphins next year if that recovery goes well.

"That's what I'd love to do," Ferguson said Friday. "If the recovery is good, I'll be good."

There was uncertainty whether Ferguson would ever play again.

He is 35 years old and had talked about perhaps retiring after this season. He is also unsigned for next season. Ferguson is making $4 million in 2009 in the final year of contract.

But while the contract situation would have to be settled between him and the Dolphins -- with the team needing to decide on making a commitment to Ferguson or not -- the issue of whether Ferguson wants to keep playing is apparently not an issue.

Regardless of Ferguson's desire to return, the Dolphins are likely to address the nose tackle position in other ways this offseason. The team is expected to try to add a younger player to groom for the future.

In other news:

A source tells me C Jake Grove will be listed as doubtful on the injury report that will come out in a couple of hours.

The source also said the Dolphins expect OLB Joey Porter to play against the Jaguars despite the fact he didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Porter did practice Friday and is telling folks he's going to play barring some unforeseen setback. The source did not know how the Dolphins will list Porter, although he's likely to be listed as probable from the sound of things.  

[Update: My report on Grove is correct and the Dolphins are listing Grove as doubtful. Jason Taylor (shoulder) and Joey Porter (knee) are probable. Nathan Jones (hamstring) is questionable. For the Jaguars, Mike Sims-Walker (calf), DT John Henderson (shoulder), and Rashean Mathis (groin) are doubtful. That's huge as Sims-Walker is the team's best receiver, Henderson is its best defensive lineman and Mathis the best cover cornerback.]

Its bad when even I say this blog has gotten outa hands the last couple days.

Go Dolphins!

THINGS WE NEED TO ADDRESS IN THIS UP COMING DRAFT

1 RECEIVER-
IF DEZ BRYANT DOES NOT FALL TO US I DONT SEE US GOING RECIEVER BUT GOLDEN TATE WOULD BE GREAT ALTHOUGH I HAVENT SEEN MANY HIGHLIGHTS WITH HIM CATCHING PASSES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD GREAT HANDS. OTHER OPTION GRESHAM IS A GREAT TIGHT END DID HAVE AN INJURY BUT RECOUPED LIKE A CHAMP. ALL THE OTHER RECEIVERS ARE TO SHORT TO TO SLOW. AND WE CAN ADDRESS THIS IN FREE AGENCY ALOT OF GGOD RECEIVERS WILL BE FREE WE JUST HAVE TO BE HUNGRY FOR ONE

2.NOSE TACKLE -
FERGUSON IS AWESOME BUT OLD IF WE CAN GET HIM FOR DIRT CHEAP IT BE GREAT IF HE STUCK AROUND TO SWITCH OF WITH TERRENCE CODY IF HE FALLS TO US ( WISHFUL THINKING )

3. PASS RUSHER -
ROLANDO MCCLAIN IS THE SMARTEST LB AND IS ALWAYS AROUND THE ACTION REMIDNS OF ZACH THOMAS JUST BIGGER CARLOS DUNLAP COULD FALL NOW AND HE IS STILL A FREAK BUT HE DOESNT PLAY THE SAME STYLE WE DO. JASON PIERRE PAUL GREAT SIZE SPEED AND DEFEND TE BUT HIS PRODUCTION KINDA SLOWED AT THE END. SPIKES NOR KINDLE SELL ME!!

4. SAFETY GIBRIL COMING AROUND BUT WE NEED MORE TALENT ERIC BERRY OF TENNEESSE WILL BE OFF THE BOARD I SEE TAYLOR MAYS DROPPING TO ABOUT OUR SPOT BUT I DONT SEE US GOIN SAFTEY FIRST ROUND IT BE NICE TO HAVE A BRIAN DAWKINS SEAN TAYLOR TYPE SAFETY LIKE MAYS BACK THERE THOUGH

5.CENTER - USC'S CENTER WILL DROP INTO THE LATE SECOND ROUND MAYBE EVEN THIRD

6. RUNNING BACK I LOVE RICKY AND RONNIE BUT RONNIE GETS HURT ONCE A YEAR AND RICKY IS ABOUT TO LEAVE SO NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO BRING ONE IN AND START TEACHING HIM

PERSONALLY ID GO NOSE TACKLE PASS RUSHER/ LB THEN RECEIVER . AND STILL BE AGRESSIVE ON THE FREE AGENCY BLOCK FOR A RECEIVER

THIS DRAFT HAS ALOT OF DEPTH THAT IVE SEEN IN YEARS SO I SEE US RELEASING OR TRADING ALOT OF PLAYERS

JUST MY OPINION BUT IM NO KIPER LOL

sureshockphins,

First, turn off your caps lock, it is annoying.
Dez Bryant will be gone by the time we pick and there is not an established "#1" receiver the fans here are hungry for in the first round after him. Terence Cody is a nose tackle but currently only a two down player with some stamina problems. Teams are concerned that once he gets a contract he will get lazy and eat is way out of the league. That said, he is rated as a 2nd rounder and might be there if we want to take a chance. Eric Berry will be a top ten pick and gone when we pick. Taylor Mays is more of a strong safety with incredible size and speed but we already have two players who are good against the run, not so much for the pass. The player we hope to see is Rolando McClain. Prototypical size at 6"3, 255 and speed. Great instincts and athletic ability. He might fall because teams don't dfart inside LB's as high. I read one analyst say "Patrick Willis but bigger". I don't see this team drafting a WR early. I see linebackers and maybe an elite TE which would help stretch the defenses and keep team from double teaming Bess.

I think that we will beat the Kitty cat. I live in Jax, and I am going to the game. Ernest Wilford won't do anything to us. He can't catch a brick if they gave him one.
GO FISH
22-17

so what when we went to Buttfalo their best players were out too!

If dolphins go deep into playoffs any chance ronnie comes back?

"Here’s why: the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America is using Garrard as their way to get their message out about the need for a cure to Crohn’s disease.
