Complete list of restricted free agents according to NFLPA

A few years ago the New England Patriots identified a restricted free agent they truly liked -- thanks to a recommendation from a friend of Bill Belichick named Nick Saban -- and they went after the player.

No, they didn't end up signing Wes Welker as a restricted free agent. But they did work out a trade for him with the Miami Dolphins.

That was 2007. Restricted free agency has seen precious few players changing teams since then despite the success Welker has had with New England. The fact is as draft picks have become more valuable (based on the fact rookies now make less) fewer teams are willing to give draft pick compensation for players that will also come with new contracts.

Nonetheless, the NFL Players Association collects the list of players that do not have four years in the league but are out of contract as restricted free agents.

Take a look at my lil friend

But Sure! Spo Is A Great Coach!!

Dashi | February 02, 2013 at 03:12 PM


There needs to be a presence on the sideline that the team respects, it is becoming evident with some of the sideline tirades by Wade in particular that Spo doesn't have the sack to call them on it when there coasting.

In the time out I was talking about in the other post he almost looked like he was lost and afraid to set plays and put his team under control, especially on D last night were they were as out of sync as I've ever seen a HEAT team in the Riley ERA.

You think Doc Rivers wouldn't have been ripping his team for the effort and lack of execution, Spo is the rudderless boat that will eventually break this team's unity when if bounced early from the Playoffs the trade Bosch talk (Wade's boy) gets going into hyper drive.

All you trolls come forward and. Reveal yourself s

I hate haters they suck

fin4life and Craig M,

I'm sure Matthews is in their plans in some capacity and he may well move up the depth chart in camp. He made some plays last year and his playing time increased at the end. I'm just saying theres supposedly a sense of urgency to win this year and if it were me I would have some options.

Also fin4life, Kap also had that TE he threw to alot at Nevada...was it Virgil Green??? I haven't heard much about him lately. Gotta see where he ended up.


I know your also here in Miami and the lets trade Bosch with some picks for Howard talk is a BAD idea.

1) Will he sign a comparable deal.
2) We know unlike Bosch he will demand the ball even with Lebron on the team
3) To me a Rodman style Cancer without the Tattoo's or cross dressing

Aside from 40% Free throw shooter while Rodman was close to 80% and a rebounding machine.

Also fin4life, Kap also had that TE he threw to alot at Nevada...was it Virgil Green??? I haven't heard much about him lately. Gotta see where he ended up.

Dolfan Rick | February 02, 2013 at 03:38 PM

I totally agreed with your earlier post was just making an observation about keeping him as the 5th WR given ability to grow because M.Moore at this point is nothing more than an adequate S.T. player from my vantage point.

Heck, maybe Ross will honor the great Ryan Fitzpatrick next season to sell a few more tickets.

So.....let me get this straight.....Dashi (aka
Odindouche) hates Spoelstra (who is probably the best young HC in the NBA and just won a World Championship to prove it), but loves Irescum (who has 4 consecutive losing seasons)??? TOO F'N FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AAAARRRGGGGG!! MONKEY BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Malon Moore is a GREAT flyer, ProBowl level, fin4life.

While you guys were wasting time here repeating the same useless drivel for the ten thousandth time, CBS was airing a terrific documentary about Don Shula and his coaching legacy, including great interviews with many Dolphins legends and rarely seen game footage.

But why stop to watch that (or even be aware it was on) when the important business of writng absolutely nothing of interest is calling?

You guys are awesome fans.

LOL........ AGREE WITH YOUR POST @ 4;04 PM..........


GLAD....... GREAT POST @ 4;06 PM ,



Always remember that the JOURNEY is the VITAMIN! Whether in this world or in others, this is always true!

Often, I shall take breakfast alone in my sitting room and it is during these times of quiet reflection that the Wisdom of th Oracles comes upon me with GREAT CLARITY and I am reminded of their timeless advice:


I see a close one with S.F. winning a close one 27-24 based on overall talent even though I'd love to see the older guys go out in one last great hurra!!

Posted by: fin4life | February 02, 2013 at 02:18 PM

Give me those 3 points and I'll put a Hundo on Baltimore.

Funny, I didn't give my Ravens prediction a second thought. At least not until I saw the Great Fin4 picking SF.

I hate to pick against you Fin4, but watch for Kap to fall apart. He'll make more and bigger mistakes than Flacco, ultimately costing them the game.

Thanks ALoco.

I don't know, odin, to me Colin seems mature and unflappable,(unlike Our's).

Dan Marino will be coming out with a new sex tape to help pay for his illegitimate daughter.

Intelligence and physical ability was never the question on Kaepernik. The System where he played in was.

"Impending free agent WR Greg Jennings says he has "prepared my family for change," and added that he and Dolphins coach Joe Philbin have a "great relationship."

Jennings joined the Dolphins' team-owned radio/web TV show and stared into the camera with a smile and said, "Joe, how you doing. Remember me?" Jennings, 30 in September, has been linked to the Dolphins ever since it became clear that he wasn't in the Packers' future plans. Miami is fully expected to try and sign one of the top-flight potential No. 1 receivers on the open market."

All signs are pointing to Jennings becoming a Dolphin. Yes there are 'concerns' due to the amount of games he missed in 2012 but when healthy he's a heck of a football player. You keep Hartline & add Jennings & we'll solve the problem at the WR position with Bess & Matthews as backups.

I love Mike Wallace as well but Philbin knows EXACTLY what he's getting with Jennings--no surprises & no drama.


Matt Flynn had a great relationship with Philbin too but Ross was too cheap to pay him fairly.

Hey guys, I'm a Packer fan but I checked this site out because I'm also a Joe Philbin fan.

I can tell you we missed him greatly, and the Packers players would say the same.

Coach Philbin is a super smart guy and a fine human being. And you may not have seen it yet because of the family tragedy he experienced, but Joe also has a wickedly dry and funny sense of humor.

I think you have a damn fine coach down there. We miss you, Joe!

Good luck to your Dolphins.

Is it just me or does Philbin look like C-3PO from Star Wars?



I don't think Marino qualifies to be in that discussion....ONE SB appearance in 17 years (and none in the last 15 years of his career) is NOT the definition of "giving you're team a chance to win a SB every year".....


Seriously??? Are you nuts??? Marino was not ELITE??? Clearly you didn't watch all of the unbelievable comebacks throughout the course of his career b/c the Dolphins were NEVER out of game with Marino as our QB. To say that he didn't gave us a CHANCE to win every season &/or to win every game is just not accurate.

Here are the facts--the Bills owned us b/c they were the more complete football team for years. I'm not saying Jim Kelly was not a very good QB--b/c he was--but NO ONE believes that Kelly was a better QB than Marino. You put Marino on that Bills team instead of Kelly & I guarantee you that he would have won multiple SB's.

Rodgers & Brees have only been to one SB each but EVERY year they still give their team a CHANCE b/c they are good enough to put their teams on their back. That's ELITE.


I agree on the mature comment and to an extent, the un-flappable.

I could be wrong, it's just my prediction. But the way I see it is like this. Kap has been on a Roller Coaster. Not many people saw the QB change coming. He got hung out there and prevailed. That alone has to be an emotional cluster-fvck. Good or bad, it's taking it's toll.

Now, BEFORE he even lines up against Ray Lewis and the Ravens, he has to navigate his way through two weeks of INTENSE pressure. The Press, Fans, interviews, practice, meetings, etc, etc. Everybody and their brother reminding him of how big a stage he's now on.

All the players go through it to one extent or another. For Kap, even though he seems mature and confident, this is alot to stomache. I just see it being too much from a psychological and emotional standpoint.

Then, on top of the big promotion, the playoffs and the Super Bowl "week" treatment, he has to go out an actually face the Ravens and their defense.

Like Fin4 alluded too above, I see the Ravens being disciplined and completely ready for the zone read. Once the Ravens take this away from him, he has to go toe to toe with Flacco throwing the ball. This is where I see the mistakes starting to happen.

Like I said Oscar, it's just a prediction. But watch........this Quarterback change is going to come back and bite Little Brother in the Arse!

WNP. I wouldnt put Marino in the elite category either. Good passer but far from a complete QB. And way too much choking for my liking.


Are you seriously going to argue with someone whether or not Marino was elite?

Just Stop It!

At one time, Marino owned the record books with over 30 categories. The other day I believe I read that he still holds over 10.

You don't re-write the record books unless you ARE elite. Begining of story..........END OF STORY.

No disrespect to Kris, but he suffers the affliction the rest of us Dolphin Fans suffer from. No Titl-itus! Most of us were there, most of us witnessed it. The Olividoti so-called defense. The non-run blocking O-line, running back(s) and/or run game in general.

Despite the teams shortcomings, Marino made it to a Super Bowl, won playoff games, carried this team for years and TOTALLY re-wrote the record book(he still holds the record for most 400+ yards/games).

There's one thing even the most Jaded Dolphin Fan can't deny......

Marino was the ultimate "Elite" Quarterback(and just for Kris, I'm going to add): PERIOD!!!!


In what way was Marino incomplete?

He was a 1st round pick, probably could have started day 1 and went to re-write the record book with most likely the quickest release ever witnessed in the NFL.


Are you Trolling..........?

This is what Shula said, Dan Marino is the greatet downfield passer I've ever been associated with. That's it.

Besides that odin, most seasons he put the team on his back. No running game, no defense and at times, mediocre recievers.

Although I was also a huge fan of Duper, Clayton, and Mcduffie, none of them were beast like Calvin Johnson or even Andre Johnson.

Nah, the Dolphins lost in those times because of poor D. Remember John Riggins?

I unfortunately remember John Bosa and Eric Kumerow. Shula wasn't always the draft guru either.

Shula really didn't pick up all those great SB Players, it was Joe Thomas. Don really did train them to perfction.

Marino's ball handling and faking were atrocious. He refused to work on the run game. And the Dolphins were able to add the QB sneak and the QB draw to the playbook only after he retired.

If I'm Dashi, what the hell am I doing being a Heat Fan.

(Borrowing a third person persona)

Odin likes the Bulls and Pistons.

I also have to disagree with Dashi on Dansby and Reggie Bush.

I think we should re-sign Bush as long as he's not shooting the moon.

Dansby also OK, even if he is playing out of position. Most importantly, he's already under contract. These two thinfgs makes it a no-brainer. At least for now.

I NOW have NO idea about Manti Teo. But initially, I liked the idea of drafting Teo(or signing a free agent)and then moving Dansby back out to ROLB. That's where he's played the most and the best.

Dansby is BARELY adequate at MLB in my opinion. And that why people forget what a beast he was playing outside for the Cardinals.

Our linbacking corp is weak and we have our best player playing out of position. Duh! I have more reservations than not on Teo and considering our team needs, I would seriously consider passing even if he was there at 12. Still, Jeffy could kill two birds with one stone by getting us a good, true middle linebacker. Dansby would give us the pass rushing outside backer that we need.

And Marino always dissapeared in the big games. He could never rise to the occassion. He wasnt at his best on the biggest stage which is the sign of greatness. Just not a "money" QB.

Nobody here is arguing that Marino is the greatest QB that has ever lived. Just that he made many downfield passes that neither Shula or I had ever seen.

if shula hadda drafted a elite running back to balance that offense a'la elway and terrell davis (2 SB) he would have a few more rings.

oscar, he was a great passer. Just not a complete QB and not a money QB.


You can't seriously be a Dolphin fan talking that shyt. Isn't there a Jets or Patriots blog you could be on?

Marino DID engineer many 4th Qt comebacks. No simple QB can do dat.

Although I was also a huge fan of Duper, Clayton, and Mcduffie, none of them were beast like Calvin Johnson or even Andre Johnson.

Posted by: Dolfan Rick | February 02, 2013 at 05:30 PM

Agreed! I thought it was amazing that these smurf-like receivers were so successful. I'm sure Marino factors into this.......Big Time!

Can you imagine Marino throwing to Calvin Johnson?

I think the closest he came to this was probably Irving Fryar. Those were some fun years to witness. I was able to attend camp every year that Fryar was on the team. And I had to travel from Detroit and Chicago to do it. Worth every penny in my opinion. My oldest son was about 12, the perfect age for that kind of stuff. We made some great memories at Camp Shula.

And the Dolphins were able to add the QB sneak and the QB draw to the playbook only after he retired.

Posted by: Monte | February 02, 2013 at 05:52 PM

Oh Brother!

Give me a break man. Even with guys like Vick, Kap and RGIII playing, the sneak and draw are archaic and SELDOMLY used.

BTW - How good was RGIII at running the sneak or draw that last game of the season?

go finsssssssss

And Marino always dissapeared in the big games. He could never rise to the occassion. He wasnt at his best on the biggest stage which is the sign of greatness. Just not a "money" QB.

Posted by: Monte | February 02, 2013 at 05:56 PM

I disagree. To make this statement, I'm sure you can **NAME** many Big Games in which he disappeared.......right?

More likely, there were occassions where defenses didn't have to respect the run and were able to drop more into coverage. Anywhoo, I can't wait for the long list of Big Games in which Marino disappeared.

Having sadi all that, now you're changing the argument. The original comment was Marino wasn't **ELITE**. And for the record, that's a ridiculous assertion.

There not playing tomorrow dusty. Oh you knew that lol.

Rg111 is done he will never be the same

Marino DID engineer many 4th Qt comebacks. No simple QB can do dat.

Posted by: oscar canosa | February 02, 2013 at 06:21 PM

Good point Oscar. He's 3rd **ALL TIME** right now in 4th quarter comebacks.

That **ALONE** makes you "Money" by any standard.

Best way to evaluate a QB is to ask the DBs that had to defend against him. Perhaps you would like to have a candid conversation with the great Rod Woodson about Marino. He has said his thought about it.

Marino faded with age and injury, like all Quarterbacks do.

But you still can't lay any of the Phins shortcomings back then on Marino. Plain and simple Monte, your blowing smoke. The record books, the history books and any number of players, coaches and executives, past or present would call you.............crazy(to be polite-lol).

Perhaps you young'uns don't know that the WHOLE NFL had to go back to the drawing board to defend against Marino. Certainly, one of a Kind and a privilege to have seen him in action.

The only negative I have on Marino is he maybe played a little to long, although I would have been bummed if he retired any earlier.

Some have said Marino is the reason Jimmy Johnson didn't win a superbowl with the Dolphins.

If he would have traded or released him he would have been run out of town.

Marino taught me much about what a downfield Passer should be. For instance, now, Joe Flacco is the only one that qualifies as that(Big Ben was, but he's too old now.) Incredible throws, that's what it's all about.

marino was the mna. johnson sucked balls

Definition of an incredible throw: Some ball that arrives so quickly, in a perfect arc between 3 defenders, none of which could move a muscle to stop It. Yes.

Monkey Boy was babbling about Marino having unprotected sex and all the possible consequences.

While unprotected sex can be dangerous, he obviously fails to realize that alot of us have medical insurance. We see Doctors regularly and thoroughly.

When you're working the streets, particularly the block that the Rainbow Room sits on, I can understand his mindset.

Just the same, I'd be willing to bet that CBS and their employees all have great nedical benefits. Matter of fact, you can be tested regularly and even take a printed report with you. In Marino case, I'm sure both parties were able to dispence with any health concerns quite easily.

Of course, I can understand why a Trick.........er.........I mean, why Monkey Boy would be.......ah.......concerned.

In his case, I would agree. Having unprotected sex with him would be a bad........BAD.........VERY BAD idea!

So you Preach it Monkey Boy, when you're out there on the block tonight - PREACH IT LOUD and PREACH IT PROUD!

No comments for 20'. I guess I shut them up about Marino.

Does ever a SINGLE day go by where odorslime doesn't post about drugs or homostuff?
