Dolphins in fine cap shape (still)

The Dolphins are doing just fine with their cap space, according to the NFL Players Association numbers below released at 8 a.m. today.

The club has over $7.4 million in cap space and if you recall that after June 1 the club picks up another $10 million in space based ont he deferred cuts of Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett, there will be plenty of room to sign the draft picks, add a practice squad, do any acorn shopping general manager Jeff Ireland wants to do, and still have a bit of an emergency fund for the season.

By the way, Charles Woodson is still out there. He's eager to sign with a team. Yes, he's 37 years old, but he can still play. The Dolphins, as I have reported, had moderate interest in him a couple of months ago.

He could be a solid experienced leader of a young defensive backfield for one year.

Before that happens, however, the Dolphins could easily sign their later-round draft picks like other teams are doing. What are they waiting for? It's not rocket science.

When the government passes a law that empowers it to decree actions by the public, you have just lost a part of your freedom.

Like The Patriot Act.

Even PFT sees the writing on the wall. Not likely the fins stay in Miami. Too bad but, Miami is a city going backwards for sometime now. You reap what you sow.

Exactly, but that is really a poor comparison, I think. You are comparing a law written to counter teriorism with a law written to take control of a private sector of business.

I don't see the Dolphins going anywhere else in the near future. I think all this is a ploy by Ross to get his vote and his money.

Fins Of Fury,

I Was Just Giving An Example. Didn't Mean It Was A Right One.

These Republicans Think That They Don't Support Big Govt When Their Party Is Based On It.

I Vote For The Best Candidate Available. Whether It Is A Republican Or Democrat Doesn't Bother Me. Dashi Has No Party Affiliation.

I Voted For Obama Because It Was The Lessor Of 2 Evils. But If Jeb Bush Runs For Office. I Will Vote For Him. And Not Just Cause I Personally Know Him. But That He Is A Real Solid Human Being. He Isn't Like His Brother.

Ross isn't Rooney or Kraft, real football men. This team is nothing but a toy for a billionaire. He doesn't need the hassle of fighting for a stadium, especially now that he got screwed out of 4 million for the vote which was non refundable. Look for another stinking rich middle easterner to buy the team. It will be called the Miami Sand Neegas.

*lesser

Dashi,

Jeb Bush is as slimy a crook as their is. That whole hanging chad farce with the Gore-Bush vote was nonsense. The real crime was that Jeb illegally revoked the voting rights of 55,000 democrats. This story was exposed fully by the BBC, not the American media controlled bs news. It has been well documented since.

Jeb Bush is just as big of a disgusting sin as the rest of his family.

Just so you know where I stand, I don't believe either of these two parties are no the side of the public. I believe the whole system has to be flushed out. The general public has no real representation in Washington by either party. Representation is for big business that spends millions quarterly lobbying (bribing) new laws in their favor.

Of course Ross does not have the football background of the Steelers and the Patriots owners, but he is a multi-billionaire. I think he knows how to work the system, and if he can't, he probably has someone employed that can.
In light of the Marlins stadium issue, it would take some pretty smooth maneuvers to get some more money for his stadium.

Hazan,

I Don't Disagree With You.

But I Have Met Jeb Bush. I Don't Know If It Was Him Being A Great Politician. But The Man Convinced Me. He Seems Honest.

On The 2000 Elections. Agreed He Cheated. But It Was His Brother Running For Office. Wouldn't You Do The Same?

Notice Jeb Left The Political Arena After This Happened.

I Believe Jeb Bush Is More Honest Than Any Republican Running For Office. If I Had To Vote Republican It Would Only Be For Jeb. Rubio Doesn’t Convince Me. And Boehner Even Less.

Again, I'm Not Expecting Anyone To See The Things The Way I Do.

And Doubt Most People Would Want Another Bush In Office. And Jeb Himself Told Me He Has No Interest In The Presidency. But I Feel The Only Real Person The Republicans Have Left Is Jeb.

The Tea Party Actually Weakens The Republican Party. But They Are To Ignorant To Realize That.

Romney Lost His Home State And His VP's Home State. Because They Divorced Themselves From The Republican Party.

The Republicans Need To Fix Their Own Party Before They Start Scolding The Opposition.

Plain and simple, anytime the government passes a law that gives them the power to tell us to do something in which they previously had no power; we have lost freedom.

Did you see that published by Barry? Tannehill to Wallace running routes, - You should go half speed. - I AM going half speed, man. HoHo! Looks like the real deal also.

Posted by: Just FYI | May 11, 2013 at 01:07 PM

You are correct, I was just throwing some $ out there using what I believed to be the approximate numbers. I would suggest that before you go on a rant and post idiotic comments, that you simply state that you disagree and why. However, I decided to look a little closer and since you chose to show your own ignorance, allow me to retort.

My comments were based on how much we're under the cap this year with the current salaries. Next year, several of those high salaries will no longer be on the team so in essence, that frees up cap space you fool. I can quote internet sites too that provide information that may or may not be accurate. Oh, here's one:
http://overthecap.com/teamcap.php?Team=Dolphins&Year=2014

Take a look at that site after your done cleaning your room in your mom's basement. You'll notice what the current projections are for our salary cap in 2014. Even with the inflated cap hits on Wallace, Hartline, etc., we're still only at $102 million. The adjusted cap this year is $123 milliion and next year it should be more, but I won't even count that. Using this year's cap numbers we'll have $21 million available. Patterson and Marshall's $13 million will also be off of the 2014 projection so that's $33 million. There will also be rollover cap space from this year. To say we won't be anywhere near $40 million shows why you should do your own research before letting your fingers do the walking. You're correct...ignorance IS bliss.......it's also YOUR'S!! Bwahahahahaha

Stick with what we've got. Woodson can't play corner anymore and IMO isn't what you want from a safety. You people are crazy, well some of you. Obviously fly by night fans, only a fool would say Ross is too cheap. Ross wants this team to be great and has never been cheap when it comes to spending on this team.

Ross is a terrible owner. How does he justify keeping Ireland for a 6th year when all he does is draft bust players and lose every year? Remember when Ross tried to hire a HC before firing his HC? LOL He needs to sell the team to someone that knows what they're doing.

Yes, hindsight is 20-20 but Ross also made one of the dumbest comments ever when he claimed Chad Henne was the 2nd coming of Dan Marino. LOL

Mat Moore, I just left a brown piece in the toilet that has more intelligence then you, troll. Go back to bed and play with yourself, if you even have the brains to do that right.

Brown piece of what, son?

I like the competition we should have at the guard position
Let the better player win and the other one be a backup
We finally will have a better than average front line
I like the position that the dolphins are in - lots of cap space younger stronger faster players at a cheaper price
Next year we will have 2 extra picks from long and bush leaving as free agents we should get 2 compensatory picks
You build a team through the draft because it's cheaper and that allows you to use the savings on a few elite players in the free agency
I think we have more than 80% of the core players in place
2014 we will finish rebuilding and should have an awesome team
I think we might win at least 10 this year and surprise many teams

George W Bush was so bad he turned me from a devout republican to a devout democrat. And I'm not going back. Obama has done a great job.

Ralph, if they want to build through the draft they need a new GM.

Irelands best acquisitions have been in FA and CFL not the draft.

Son, on your knees again like a good boy.

true mike, ireland did well in free agency but failed again on draft

We should have taken Eifert at 12 and kept the high second.

i agree, bad draft. very risky pick at 3

The post at 11:37 is incestual. It is referring to a Father asking his son to perform felatio on him. What a wonderful place to come and discuss Dolphins football. Thank you Miami Herald for allowing this.

How do you justify coming in here every day and typing the same exact thoughts?

The disgusting posts are from YG, Odin, and Dashi the 3 year olds who think getting the last word is winning.

bobby the 12 yr old can be very inappropriate also

I don't know why Armando is so proud of this blog. How many regular bloggers does he have after all this time? 10? 12? That is nothing. The same few people day in and day out, and you know most of use multiple names since every new name tha appears just happens to know everything that goes on here.

This is a joke of a blog. Armando's entire audience could fit in a minivan.

And he is proud?

Listen, this is the best and most active Dolphin blog. Mando is the best Dolphin beat writer with good insight and he should be proud of both his work and his blog. Most of the intelligent Dolphin fans are long gone and what remains is largely dreck. Bad team = Bad blogs. Still, this is the best of whats left.

Greg @ 12:40.....

That could be the BEST POST EVER....

Every "NEW" sign in names has the back story on EVERYBODY.....Coincidence.....

I think not....

however....

I think you can up the # up to maybe 15-20......not "regulars"....but total posters.....

that's my guess....

Enjoy your day.....

Moderator, you are just as bad as they are if not worse. No one can prove that those people use aliases but we all know you do because its the same cast of characters every day. And you repeat the same things every day. Mike,shula73,zonk,and nat moore, all the same and repeat the same exact words on a daily basis. So either you are helping Armando by using key words and phrases that will keep regulars mad and defending their team therfore creating more hits or you are an incredible loser who needs internet attention in order to feel relevant.

But understand this,,,,,either answer makes you an insufferable loser. That is the pleasure I take in reading your verbal nonsense. It warms my heart to know how pathetic your existence is.

ONLY A COMPLETE MORON WOULD TRY AND GO THRU THIS YEARS SCHEDULE WITHOUT A DION JORDAN.

AND WHERE ARE ALL THE IGNORANT PEOPLE WHO CALLED MIKE WALLACE A ONE TRICK PONY? ASK PHILBIN ABOUT THAT.

AND ACCORDING TO TANNEHILL "He's the fastest player i've ever seen"

THIS TEAM WOULD BE A JOKE W/O JORDAN AND WALLACE.

HELLO, NFL...THERE'S A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN.

AND TO QUOTE JEROME BROWN "WE THE BOSS"!!!

That would me me, Super Bowl winning Head Coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

fins tough schedule. 9-7 would be max, 5-11 would be the low if injuries. go finsssssssssss i think 2014 will be the year we start to take over div

CHARLES WOODSON MADE NFL NETWORKS TOP 100 PLAYERS OF 2012.

DOLPHINS SECONDARY HAVE NONE, UNLESS GRIMES MADE IT.

A RISK WORTH TAKING....

I have to use an alias when saying these things and its all because of you. If I use my regular sign in you would attack every Dolphins related post I would make afterwards because you are a pathetic loser like I just pointed out. You have no regular sign in name, just hundreds of aliases you use in order to attack people. I am using this sign in to make a point. Sorry that you're too stupid to understand that.

I have a gut feeling...nothing to base it on except a feeling...that the secondary is going to be the most improved area on the team this season....

....oh...and Happy Mothes Day to all you mothers....

Just got back from playing 18; what have you loser(s) been doing?

...that's MotheRs Day....lol

Hey, Dashi, Odin, YG, Phins 78, and Craig M say the same exact thing every day. Same person?

Unlike the cheap fish the top teams have spent near their limit. Baltimore, San Fran, Atlanta.

I have repeatedly told Oliver not to rile you People here. Oh yes, I have named all my Sons beginning with an O.

All the personal attacks come from YG, Dashi and Odin. As well as the filth. Using an alias is nothing compared to that trash.

In all seriousness, the trolls usuallly write very clean. It is the few bloggers that think they are important that write the moust foul and vile things, and they do it regularly.

The trolls are the only good thing this blog has.

Agreed. The "trolls" are clean for the most part and objective about the team. Troll is a compliment when referring to a Dolphin blog.
