Dolphins sign their first three rookies to deals

The Dolphins are getting started on getting their rookies under contract. The team today announced the signing of linebacker Jelani Jenkins, defensive back Don Jones, and kicker Caleb Sturgis.

All are getting four-year contracts under the rules of the collective bargaining agreement. 

The Jenkins deal is worth approximately $2.575 million. The Sturgis deal is worth approximately $2.24 million. The Jones deal is worth approximately $2.14 million. This all assumes each players sees all four years of the deal, obviously.

Jones got approximately $45,000 in guaranteed money in the form of a signing bonus. Sturgis got approximately $145,000 in guaranteed money. Jenkins got a signing bonus of approximately $472,000.

The Dolphins have nine draft picks, so six remain unsigned. (No issues, they'll all sign).

Jenkins was Miami’s first fourth-round selection (104th overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft out of the University of Florida. Started 31 games at Florida and played in 36 total games during his career. Jenkins finished his career with 182 tackles (109 solo), six sacks, 17 stops for loss and six quarterback pressures and three interceptions.  Born March 13, 1992 in Rockville, Maryland, Jenkins attended Our Lady of Good Council High School in Olney, Md. where he lettered in both football and track.

Jones was Miami’s seventh round selection (250th  overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft out of the Arkansas State University.  A two year starter for the Red Wolves, he played in 26 games and recorded 128 tackles, two interceptions, one sack and one blocked kick. Born May 14, 1990 in Tuscumbia, Alabama, Jones attended Hazelwood High School in Town Creek, Alabama, where he lettered in football and track.

Sturgis was the second of Miami’s two fifth round selections (166th overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft out of the University of Florida. During his career he made 70 of 88 field goal attempts which set school records, while his 70 made field goals also placed seventh on the Southeastern Conference all-time record chart. Over the course of his career he amassed 340 points which currently ranks third in school annals behind Chandler’s 368, and Tim Tebow’s 342 (2006-09)..  Born August 9, 1989 in Boca Raton, Florida, Sturgis attended St. Augustine High School (Florida), where he lettered in football and soccer.

Sorry if I offended you, it wasn't meant too. It wasn't even really directed at you.

I was just in the mood to talk football and you know as well as I do how bad it can get in here.

Again, I Apologize.

PS: You Gaytarded Monkey Bu-oy! Whoop-WHOOOOP!!!!

(Joking)

Phins78,

Great Pair Of Post.

Agreed. With Everything.

Same Thing Happened With The Marlins Stadium.

It Took 10 Years For The Deal To Go Thru And When It Did. The People Got Royally Screwed.

Same Thing With The High Speed Train. Each Year That Goes Buy It Gets More Expensive To Build.

Either Build It Now Or Later. And Better Now Than Later.

...

You idiots can put up all of the smoke screens that you want.
The fact remains that
a) We are weak at QB and b)the team's beat reporter and it's best player are already distancing themselvs from our weak QB

Oscar, the city of Green Bay owns the stadium. The Packers lease it from the city. Tax payers paid 100% of the cost of renovations that were done in 2003.

If Miami bought the stadium from Ross they could charge him rent and just raise your taxes (without asking) to do any and all renovations.

The deal Ross purposed would have cost the taxpayers FAR less.

We don't care, Phins78. We want to be Owners.

Odin,

D. Thomas Was One Of My Favorite Players Growing Up. And You Described Him Perfectly.

Agreed. Comparing Him To A HOFer Is A Little Ridiculous. But DJ Has That Kind Of Potential.

Why Limit Him To Only Put His Hand On The Ground?

And The Way JT Talks About DJ It Sounds Like He Is Ready To Mentor Him. Like He Wants Him To Be The Next Great Dolphin Pass Rusher.

Phins78,
The Yankees lease Yankee stadium from the City of NY. The Yanks hve not mde a rent payment in decades.
Why? What is the city going to do evict them?

Cameltoejoe you're not fooling anyone. Everyone knoews you're not a fan so please go change your sign in and try again. Maybe some day someone will believe you're a fan. Since your name magically appeared you have not written ONE good thing about the team you supposedly root for. Please stop the act, it's boring. No more "we" please.

We believe strongly in Public Ownership. Specially now.

ODOR MAN YOU ARE NOT THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR.

Jordan will reak havoc to QB's. No time to wait on a play to develop.

Odashe be trying to run the blog and the team.

Phins78,
The truth hurts.
The truth needs to be spoken.
A year ago fans bore the cost to fly over the city with a banner urging Ross to fire Ireland.
The fans who speak the truth arethe real fans.
And in this case he truth is that we are weak at QB.
In fact since Pat white ill start some gamesfor the Skins and Henne will be starting for Jax, bfore the end of the season ohnClayton will be reporting tht of the 3 QBs that Ireland drafted Tanne is the least capable.

Phins78

You've been more bitter than usual lately. What's wrong? Family troubles? Wife not spreading? Or just not spreading for you?

Oscar do it! Start an underground movement and buy that stadium! Hope you have a lot of money saved. ;)

On Special, on Special! Run to It, if you can.

Bring out the HELLMANN'S and bring out the BEST!!!

I do have one good thing to say about the team during this offseason: I thought the LB moves in free agency were exceptional.
- Payin $12mil/yr to Wallace: big mistake
- Offering Long $8mil and watching him walk for $8.5mil: big mistake
- Moving up to number 3 and then spending it on Jordan instead of a LT: Big mistake

Starting with the day Jeff Fisher signed with StL compare all of StL's tansactions with all of ours and we look really shtty in comparison.

armando is the sOLE REASON FOR THIS FILTH WE READ IN EVERY POST WE READ LATELY .....


ARMANDO SHOULD HAVE SOME SHAME AND ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF FILTH BY FEW IGNORANT POSTERS ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Camel you have no clue if Tannehill will be succesful or not, none of us do and you are just guessing. Bringing up Henne and comparing him to Tannehill without seeing Henne has NO upside and Tannehill has tons shows me you may not be in touch with the QB position and are probably using emotion to come to your conclusion.

Fans can question, fans can be upset. But we just had our best offseason since JJ was here and you have nothing good to say about the team you supposedly root for. That's not a true fan and I've met thousands of fans of teams in every sport.

I have never once met a fan, (even from teams that are and always have been FAR worse than my Dolphins) who destroys his team verbally every chance they get. There is a common trait that all true fans possess and it's called hope. No matter how bad the team a true fan has hope. You have not displayed one ounce of hope since you have arrived. Sorry man, it's true. If you are a fan you may want to switch teams because if you have lost hope what's the point?

There is a Bank in Barcelona , that holds Somebody's Treasure in the excess of 200 Billion $. Those Owners there have the same or = amount as there is in that Bank in Barcelona in 200 other Banks around the World. Not that We own that, of course, but just for your information.

The early rd picks will have to hold out like Tannehill had to in order to get a fair deal from cheapo Ross.

I'm not interested maiman. I know you were really hoping to get a rise out of me by talking about my family. I don't know you and couldn't care less what you think. Enjoy your fishing trip and good luck on your next cast, hope you land a big one.

PHILBIN S OUR CORN BEEF COACH

Okay, it just got real stupid in here, I'm out.

THE (( FILTHY LANGUAGE )) ISSUE IN THIS BLOG HAS TO BE ADDRESSED BY ;;;;;

ARMANDO .......................


YOU GOT TO SHOW THAT YOU HAVE SOME DIGNITY AND SOME SHAME TO BAN ALL THESE FILTY POSTERS ON THIS BLOG FOR FEW DAYS AT LEAST..............


CLEAN THE BLOG,PLEASE .........

Please stop the act, it's boring. No more "we" please.

Good Post Phins, keep up the Good Work-LOL!

Odin,

Thanks for polluting the blog with your endless cut and paste slobber rants.

Do you really think ANYONE wants to read that nonsense? If you think it entertains anyone, it doesn't. You are like five trolls in one with that crapola.

Give it up for once and for all.

Why Barcelona? That's Real complicated.

Jordan would be perfect as an OLB against the "read option" provided he can learn to set the edge. Send Odrick, the DE "read" to cover the RB, and Jordan, out of the OLB position, to go after the QB. That's one way to defeat the "read option". However, he has to set the edge against the run.

THE WORDS WE USE SHOWS WHERE WE CAME FROM AND WHERE WE WILL BE ENDING .............


THE POSTERS WHO USES A FITHY LANGUAGE ARE SURE COMING FROM SOME TRASH FAMILY AND AND WILL END SOME WHERE IN A HOMELESS SHELTER ...

Aloco,

If It Is The Real Aloco,,,,,,

Who Is The Instigator?

**Blogger Grades**
===================

ohnClayton will be reporting tht of the 3 QBs that Ireland drafted Tanne is the least capable.

Bhaaaaaaaaaant! Totally worthless, you Sir are OBVIOUSLY NOT ready for Prime Time.

I'll bet these two still tell their Momma's that the Marijuanna and Meth don't affect them at all ;)

Bhwaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Oscar,

The Castro Family Doesn't Have $200 Billion.

They Are Billionaires But They Don't Have That Much. Unless They Have Been Collecting Interest. Come To Think About You Might Be Right.

ALoco has always seemed to me to be a Bible thumper just as Armando is. ???Then

ARMANDO IS THE INSITGATOR...........

THEN THE FILTHY POSTERS WHO THINK THEY R SMART MEN .................

TO ME ,THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FROM NO ONE ,NO ONE ...................


AS FOR ARMANDO WHO CLAIMS TO CHRISTIAN ,I SAY..............


NO SHAME
NO DIGNITY ........

Aloco

Armando is a low class uneducated person who only knows the bible and contradiction and hypocracy.

He'll take blog hits from whatever trash comes his way. He is happy with a lot of trash posts because he thinks it makes him look good.

Low class frijole.

heehee, and just who said it was the Castro Family, Dashi?

EASEL........

BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO SEF RESPECT ?

WHAT HAPPENED TO POSTING CLEAN POSTS AND WELL WRITTEN POSTS ?


WHAT HAPPENED TO HAVE SHAME AND BE ASHAMED ?


WE R LIVING IN A WORLD OF SELFISHNESS AND FILTH ........

Tracyh474,

Agreed. With What You Said.

Except On The Execution.

In Option Football The DE Goes After The Inside Man, Usually The Qb. And The LB Stops The Outside Man, Usually The RB Or Player Taking The Pitch.

The Read Option Is Still The Option Without The Pitch.

The Benefit We Have Now To Defend The Option Is Now Our MLB Can Run Sideline To Sideline. So He Can Come Clean Up If They Block The Outside Guy.

For Example Look At K'nick TD Run Against Us That Broke The Game Wide Open. They Blocked The OLB And The MLB Was Slow To Reach The Edge.

CASTRO IS WORTH ABOUT 42 DOLLARS..........


YOU GUYS NEED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL......

Listen this guy Dion is immensely strong. No comparison whatsoever there to JT. All fiber he is.

OC,

Your Secret Agenda Is Always Comandante Castro.

I'm Not Denying It. That He Has Money In Barcelona. I Wouldn't Be Surprised If Castro's Money Is FDIC Insured Either. Yeah I Went There.

While We Throwing Things Out There.

The Mob Uses The Vatican To Launder Money. Think About It.

- Hey, man, we are in deep sh-t here. - Take out your Bible and thump it. We'll be alright.

Dashi is a Cracker Jack that can talk, nothing more. He is alarmingly stupid, and too stupid to realize it.

Yeah, I know you don't want to know who They really are, Dashi. Don't be afraid, They won't harm you, you're sh-t to Them.

OSCAR,


SOME OF YOUR POSTS ARE SMART AND SOME R VERY DUMB ........

AND THE DUMB POSTER FOLLOW YOUR DUMB POSTS LIKE CASTRO IS WORTH 200 BILLION .

And Watch Your Mouth.

You Can Talk About Anyone You Want Here. Just Don't Insult Armando.

Seriously. Look At This Morning. I Know Why My Comments Got Deleted Today.

It Wasn't For Insulting The Troll. Mando Could Care Less.

Dashi Made Some Comments That Really Hurt Mando. And Poof!

I Believe It Was The Bio Comment And On How He Got His Job. He Doesn't Want People To Know He Is The Youngest Spy To Come Out La Isla.

Armando couldn't be a spy for a cockroach factory. Spies are smart. Armando is a frozen tortilla.

DASHI HAS NO DIGNITY OR SHAME.......


HE INULTS IN THE DAY TIME ,THEN SAYS HE'S SORRY AT NIGHT .B/C HE'S AFRAID TO BE BANNED FOR A DAY...........


NO SHAME

HE INSULT

He Is Like Mr. Bean

Of course They have always used the really sick Psychopaths for their purposes(Hitler, FC), Dashi. Again, don't be afraid, They won't harm you.

I believe that in 2008, ALoco, Fidel Castro said they could buy the Island of Cuba for 60 Trillion $s. Either it was in jest or that offer was refused. He said, todo tiene su Precio, at that moment.

Aloco,

Seriously. Banned.

You Know I Can Care Less. Just Wait Til Tomorrow And Watch.

I Apologize Cause My Words Hurt And Others Just Talk Out Their Ass. Constantly.

If My Words Didn't Hurt. The Trolls Wouldn't Try So Hard.

That Is The Truth Truth.

I See We Are No Longer Talking Football. So Dashi Will Make His Departure.

Cuba Might Be Broke, But Fidel Has Money.

He Has Been Signing One Sided Deals For 50 Years Now. All To His Bank Accounts.

If My Words Didn't Hurt. The Trolls Wouldn't Try So Hard.

Posted by: Dashi | May 14, 2013 at 09:02 PM

It is you that struggles in vain to sound wordly, but you only sound naive and ill-informed. Your filthy talk shows weakness. You can't make an intelligent argument, so like odin, you resort to high school locker room trash talk.

Nobody is ever impressed. It only makes you smaller.

My, My, why some People depart when I'm here? No tengan Miedo.

Fidel can't even buy an erection right now. Who cares.
