DeAngelo Williams returns to Carolina :(

The Carolina Panthers will announce in the next 24 hours that they have retained running back DeAngelo Williams.

Why am I reporting this?

You have to ask?

The Dolphins were interested in Williams and were one of three teams that made offers to perhaps the best running back available in free agency.

The offer was considered no more than a flirtation by Williams, however, once it became clear the steep price it would take to pry him loose from the Panthers or keep him from going to Denver. ESPN.com is reporting Williams has agreed to a 5-year, $43 million contract that includes a whopping $21 million in guaranteed money.

The Dolphins were shopping for a running back and continue that search. But they were looking around at Sears and Williams was hanging out at Sak's.

So what does this mean?

Miami still needs a running back to pair with rookie Daniel Thomas. Ahmad Bradshaw is still a possibility, although the Giants are considered the heavy favorites to retain him. He could be considered the next-best available runner. He also would not come cheaply as it would require outbidding New York.

The Dolphins have talked to agent Drew Rosenhaus about Bradshaw and Rosenhaus has given the team the appropriate parameters for making that work.

Then we head to the clearance aisle. Miami can still go back to Ronnie Brown, who is offering himself to the highest bidder. Miami can look at Cedric Benson, assuming he's not in jail today. Miami can go very cheap for Atlanta's Jason Snelling.

I suppose there's also Ricky Williams.

The pray-for-it-to-happen solution is that Reggie Bush gets cut by the Saints because he has a cap value north of $11 million. Then Miami swoops in and add him for the sake of giving him the football 15 times a game or so.

Don't bank on that working out perfectly.

Other running backs that are available include Willis McGahee, Joseph Addai, Marion Barber, Carnell Williams, Darren Sproles, or ...

Nevermind.

I can see Henne leading the Bills past Miami in two or three years time. I dont see how this is really any different than all the other desparate quick fix qb moves that have blown up down there in the last 12 years. Another avg at best qb for a high draft pick - which I guess doesn't really matter when you can't draft! Another wasted year in Miami. You will be hitting the reset button in 6 - 18 months.

CraigM,

Just because you want to embrace this doesnt mean I should follow suit. Only thing we've embraced with this regime is borderline mediocrity at best. To some of us loyal fans that is unacceptable.

4yrs in and still not a legit wildcard playoff team. If you feel good about embracing that, then good for you my friend.


TorturedDolphan,

Im man enough to totally agree with your 1:23 AM post. You are absolutely correct!!!!!!!!!!!!

Regie Bush!!!!!!!!

Daniel Thomas/Lex Hilliard on 1st/2nd downs
Reggie Bush/Nic Grigsby or Kory Sheets on 3rd
KR/PR = Bush/Grigsby

If we get Orton, with our o line this is all we need.

Let Lex Play Please!

YEAH BUDDY REGGIE BUSH..WE'VE GOT BUSH!IT SOLVES Alot..a big name ...speed on the o...puntreturner..dangerous on the screen pass..and draws...

Just say that Black.....

and while we all may have wanted it....NO ONE PREDICTED....

WAKE UP ARMANDO!!!!!

ITS FREE AGENCY!!!!!!

Reggie Bush is coming to Miami baby!!!

that should have read....

WAKE UP ARMANDO...AND STOP TROLLING AND MAKING UP NAMES.....

its FA TIME!!!!!

Here's one for the Orton embracers. Hope this changes your minds: 2010 Orton sacks

GM1 3 sacks
GM2 1 sack
GM3 1 sack
GM4 6 sacks
GM5 1 sack
GM6 1 sack
GM7 4 sacks
GM8 4 sacks
GM9 0 sacks
GM10 5 sacks
Gm11 3 sacks
GM12 4 sacks
GM13 1 sack
Gm14 to 16 did not play

sorry ronnie but you're a fullback in runningback clothes...reggie will get alot more touches with the fins than in no...also he can run the ball in thev wildcat..

We signed Reggie Bush!

Now I know Orton is coming because there's no way Henne or young could utilize that many weapons effectively.

Chances are Bush will likely agree to the terms of the trade; a change of scenery would be welcome.

Bush is good if he can stay healthy. This steal isnt a done deal yet, he has to agree to money terms.

If we sign both Bush and Orton Im assuming we wont have very many 2012 draft picks left.

I would love it if we got Bush for a 5th rd pick or less.

Our capologist must be going nuts right now!

Miami! Home of the thong... Of course he'd come here. Lol

Its very difficult not to get excited about Bush as an addition. But reality still states he's injury prone. My emotions are very mixed over this.

Former cane greg olsen also is gonna get traded and the bears aren't asking for much..last year he wasn't traded cause they wanted to much.

I imagine compensation won't be high in terms of picks due to the saints need to move him and his salary.

It's that lady, whatever her name is.

DB-- he does address our glaring need of speed on O.

FB,

That lady(capologist) is going to earn the hell out of her paycheck this offseason. LOL...

DB,

Don't let your emotions come into play!

This is BIG business

kingsmith,

If Bush can go an entire season injury free we got ourselves a real steal. If not, we've only added a half season's worth of excitement at best.

Guys, why don't we jump on Braylon Edwards? Now is the time to do it. He's pissed at the jets.

odinseye,

My thoughts are: "God plaese dont let this be another Grove/Smiley situation." LOL...

Come on people!

Your worried about a capologist when the the republican facist party is trying to burn the mother down?

Let the revolution BEGIN!

Are you wussbags going to wait until they take away your right to breath the air?

IT IS TIME!!!!

Oh and Kevin Boss pleaaaase!!

Clayton just reported the snag in the Orton deal is Miami only wants to give up a 4th or 5th rd pick and Elway wants a 3rd rd pick. Damn Ireland's now trying to show some balls!

Orton get final say whether he dealt in Denver. He could veto everything and still get his $8 million plus owed by Denver.

I have a sneaking suspision Orton isnt going anywhere and is going jack Elway for the $8 million plus owed. Why accept a trade and restructure when over $8 million plus is already practically sitting in your lap?

VY could yet become a Dolphin. Pleeez God!!!!!

I believe adding both Bush and VY would sinificantly help us close the gap on the other afc playoff competition. Provided Bush stays healthy!

Snelling would be nice if bradshaw doesn't come thru he is a beast

Having to restructure Bush to fit under the cap. I believe this is a sign Ireland's ready to walk away from Orton. Its going to be tough to have them both without cutting a small slew of our own vet players.

Default America!

Time to Die puss bags!

The ONLY thing good about Boston was the Tea Party!

Blow something up! Burn something down!

Viva Timothy McVeigh!

These dueschebags don't have your best interests at heart. How long will you continue to give your taxes and allegience?

Suckers!

The inner cities have been ready for awhile.

How long will it take for you candy a s s e s to get in line?

NAFTA was nothing more than a PONZI scheme perpetrated on you by the the "supposed" US Govt.

The supposed "US Govt" doesn't represent you, it represents big business, AKA Big Oil.

Let me guess, push done come to shove and you panzies don't know what to do.

Ah ha ha! Now you're going to know what it's like to be an Iraqi or an Afghanistani! Only worse because you pacifists haven't a clue!

Join a local Militia while you still have a chance!

VY should do this, Chad Henne that, Blah, blah, blah.

Grandma and Grandpa ain't getting THEIR Social Security! Their MONEY that they paid in!

Guess what? GI Joe ain't getting his shyt either.

You panzies going to wait for the riots to come to your door? Or, are you going to take the riots to the facists door in Washington?

Thats what I thought. Just keep posting your piddily a s s bullshyt about Orton, Henne and Vince Young.

Apathy, it's a wonderful thing, if you're a Facists in Washington DC!

Just like the Mafia, the "supposed" US Govt has robbed this country blind.

You think these thieves are coming to your rescue? ROTFLMAO! You guys ain't got shyt to offer.

They will make one concession and that one will be to pay part of the Armed Forces Budget. The "supposed" US Govt Armed Forces will basically/and HAS BEEN BASICALLY a Mercenary Force that supports the interests of Big Business/Big Oil. Not the American People

But, ah, yeah, keep on VOTING(ROTFLMAO), keep on sending the enemy your tax dollars.

ROTFLMAO, you retarded dip shyt losers.

PS: Donb't sign Orton, sign VY-Duh!!!!

ValHalla!!!!

I SEE THATT THE GANG OF DEFEAT IS OUT IN FUL FORSE THIS MORNING,WHY WUOLDNT THEY,THEY DONT HAVE TO GET UP FOR WORK,THEYL GETT UP AT 2 OR 3 IN THE AFTERNONE AND STEP IN CAT POOH>

bush isnt anything special

Armando Salguero, I give you credit. You have simply earned your reputation as having the most pathetic sports blog going.

I'm thinking you probably read your blog as your stroke you hair in the mirror.

Dear Miami Herald, can we please get a beat guy with some common sense and a brain? You know someone who's realistic about the team and not a homer windbag? This team has 7-9 at best written all over it.
