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.

Fidel with all his staying power, still lost for his people. Big time.

Chavez admired Fidel, wanted to be him, and it only got him to the grave.

Karma.

MATTER OF FACT...AGREE WITH YOUR POST@ 9;06 PM.........

I RESPECT YG FOR HIS SMART AND WIT ,BUT WHEN HE USES THE FILTHY LANGUAGE,HIS IMAGE GOES DOWN HILL FAST ...IN YOUR WORDS (( IT MAKES HIM SMALLER)) >>>>>>>>>>>>

You Are Trying To Hard.

You Are A Nuisance.

Poor Chavez. He got too close to Fidel. No se pue hace'.

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

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.

YG...FORGIVE ME FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH RE YOU ............

Dashi < Used Condom

Chavez Own People Poisoned Him. And Then They Tried To Blame The Americans.

Why Didn't They Blame The Cuban? Who Operated On Him. The Doctors Would've Exposed Maduro.

You Can Hate The Man. But At Least FC Has The Intelligence To Have 1 Cook And 1 Food Taster. Those Are The Only 2 That Handle His Food. Wherever They Go.

Truth? You want the truth? You can't handle the truth.

Dashi! SMOOCH BABY!

Fidel died in Cuba 3 months earlier. I work with Venezolanos that know. They had to postpone the announcement for all sorts of political reasons.

Most Americans readily believe whatever nonsense the Media feeds them.

Lots of good Dolphin info

Djion I think is a very exciting addition. He had an injury, does not have a history of injury. I think developing a history would be his only derailment.

DJION. You like it!

A burrito (US English /bəˈritoʊ/, Spanish: [buˈrito]), or taco de harina ['tako ðe a'ɾina],[1] is a type of Mexican food. It consists of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose a filling. (In contrast, a taco is generally formed by simply folding a tortilla in half around a filling, leaving the semicircular perimeter open.) The flour tortilla is usually lightly grilled or steamed, to soften it and make it more pliable. In Mexico, meat and refried beans are sometimes the only fillings.

In the United States, burrito fillings generally include a combination of ingredients such as Mexican-style rice or plain rice, refried beans or beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, guacamole, cheese, and sour cream, and the size varies. Typically, American-style burritos are stuffed with more ingredients than the primary meat and/or vegetable filling.

Man, that's a tough one. It's like trying to name the worst Pauly Shore movie or worst Celine Dion album.

not sure we're weak at QB......I'll go with unproven at QB for now......but saw alot more that I liked vs didnt like last year.

Dear Mr. Troll Boy,

I have recently purchasaed my 3rd Telecaster. I now have Two Fender Telecasters and a Jay Turser Telecaster.

I am quite confident in the fact that my latest Semi-Hollow Body Telly is worth more than your Food Stamp Card, your General Assistance(welfare handout)and all the Money you make working the corner in front of the Rainbow Room.

It's worth more than all the Handouts you get COMBINED..........**FOR A YEAR(I'd be willing to bet)**. And that's just ONE of my "Toys".

I don't usually like to Brag, but come on Man, it's a Real 1972 Fender Telecaster.

Tell me, you Little Punk Be-atch, how you like the fact that just ONE of my Toys is worth MORE than your ENTIRE Life Savings(The Totals of his Govt, Handout anyways)........?

You Little Govt. Reciepient, How Ya Like Me NOW.........?

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Pollster,

Odin is too old and feeble-minded to be included in that list.

He can't be held responsible for the contents of his posts or his Depends.

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


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


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

You shouldn't be the one to try talking all high and mighty. You are MORE guilty than anyone here-PERIOD!

NOBODY respects you here, not even your Trolling Partners. They TOO think you're dumber than a Rock.

To be totally honest, I've noticed that all the good, real posters leave the board the second you show up.

(Talking Bout Respect as he shuts down another blog-ROTFLMAO)

Odin, you were right about Dashi being a jackass.

Suddenly ALOCO FEEL LIKE DE TRUFF HURTS-LOL.

Lamar Miller is an explosive, powerful back. You will all find that out very shortly.

I am quite confident in the fact that my latest Semi-Hollow Body Telly is worth more than your Food Stamp Card

Tele's are toys for old timers. I play a PRS, way out of your feeble budget. Go suck your machine heads.

*********************************************

True enough. He's like watching the slowest car wreck ever.

As for you, I'm MUCH tamer towards you than most of what I see here. More just poking fun--even though I'm certain you don't see it that way.

The only thing I don't get is how you could possibly not know your "troll boy" is actually a half-dozen or so of the regulars here using multiple names. Hell, even your pal Dashi admits to using other monickers. It's the NORM here.

Dat's da truth, Ruth.

DASHI is a load that should have been swallowed!

Odinseye, you shade tree mechanic. Go take care of your POS children. You long haired freak

OK, it's obvious you two are the only ones left here.

Tell the truth, which one of you guys are in Love with Mando?

This is 2013 and you don't have to live like you used too. You can tell us.

Are the both of you guys hooked ? Do you guys do the real freaky scene?

More importantly, Mando seems like a tight wad, how much does he pay you to operate the pooper scooper out at his house?

Do you take turns or do one of you do the pool and the other the pooper scooper?

Seriously, you can tell us. Does he pay you enough to get high all day? Or does he pay you just enough for a "Teaser" to get you "Fiending"?

**YOU** can tell **US**

ROTFLMAO!!!!

==============================================

Yep.......Un Huh.........SURE!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

BTW - Telecasters are for the Blues and Country/Country Rock mainly.

But if you know what you're doing, you can make it do ANYTHING! Especially those equipped with HumBuckers!

The 3 Telecasters are just that. They aren't entire my collection for God's Sake.

I even own a "Tricked Out BC Rich"(because it looks cool and I got it at a GREAT Price.

I own quite a few Guitars now, but Gibson and Fender make my Favorites.

PS: In the future, don't even try those ignorant posts like the one you made at 10:24. They just make you look even more stupid than you are(If that's even POSSIBLE-ROTFLMFAO).

To be perfectly honest, I doubt Armando spends much (if any) time reading posts here or thinking about individual posters aside from very rare occasions.

I find the notion that they would actually PAY people to post here as ludicrous and laughable as the idea that your "troll boy" is just a couple of people (which it very clearly isn't) but if you want or need to believe that, well, that's your right.

Teles have the feel of a Model T Ford. They are all hype and garbage now.

You can't fool me you budget hippie. My axe is a BMW and your's is a fiat. Tele my butt. You'd lose your load over my axe. You know it, but won't admit it.

Dat's da truth, Ruth.

===================

I'll tell you this right up front and honest. I don't always know exactly which troll is using which moniker.

Even if I TRIED to pay close enough attention for all that, I still think it would be impossible.

Having said that, I don't mind the poking fun. I **KNOW** you remember far enough back to when we used to "Cut Up" here all in good fun.

For me it just went too far when **YOU KNOW WHO** was wishing Death upon "Ohio Dolphin's" pregnent wife.

There were other things too. Then he tried to tell me about MY OWM KIDS and bullshyt about how my Oldest Served in Iraq and Afghanistan!

Without going into detail, I'll just say, it's OBVIOUS the guys a seriously demented Bone Puffer.

Not that there's anything wrong with that........NOT!

Yep........Thanks to THAT idiot, we can't even "Goof" like we used too. I mean come on man-LOL, we even used to say "Shift Change" and make reference to the old Looney Toons Cartoon-LOL. Now THAT was some Funny Shyt, No?

Ah, the Good Old Days. Too bad **YOUR** partner had to ruin it for everyone ;)


Why do I have to read a bunch of stupid posts with poor grammar and even worst capitalization practices that have nothing to do with football. This Dashi guy, this odinseye, this Aloco... wtf... go find a hobby, football is obviously not it, nor is communicating with any level of education. I visit to hopefully learn something new about the Dolphins that isn't reported nationally and I have to sift through 50 lbs of stupid to learn this blog offers nothing of substance.

Got no "partner" here. I post here probably 4-5 days a week, maybe a dozen times or so in that span. ONCE in a while way more--but rarely.

In truth, I've come back here a few times and saw you responding to people I thought that YOU thought were 'me' (but weren't) but didn't get into it.

(man, that was a confusing sentence to even write, lol)

Agreed the really bad stuff is ridiculous. Wouldn't be my style at all. Actually about 95% of the 'humor' here isn't my style, either.

Honestly, I've been around here long enough now to say pretty confidently there's only about a dozen 'regulars' with most of them using a LOT of different names.

It doesn't really bug me at all. Only astoundingly stupid crap (i.e. racial stuff) does that.

And, yes, I do football here plenty. I just prefer to use a 'name' for that stuff that pertains to the topic at hand. There's a reason, too. The 'regular' name I was using got hijacked and I just figured why bother with it?

I find the notion that they would actually PAY people to post here as ludicrous and laughable as the idea that your "troll boy" is just a couple of people (which it very clearly isn't) but if you want or need to believe that, well, that's your right.

==============================================

GTFOH with that Bullshyt...........That's HILOARIOUS!

**YOU** know that **I** know, Armando, nor ANYONE at the Herald pays you gu.......ah.......I mean.......pays the TwinTard Trolls to bump up Blog Hits.

You guy........ah.........I mean, THEM Guys(LOL)aren't employees of the Herald(or employees of ANYONE else obviously-LOL. How can you post LITERALLY 24/7 and hold a job :( ?

Just the fact that you tried to "Run That Crap" exposes you. I mean come on, that's not the best job of "Playing Dumb" I've ever seen.

It's Two of Armando's Boy Toys that come here too run up Blog Hits. You guy......I mean, Them guys aren't on anybody's payroll. Their just:

"Friends With Benefits"

Like I said: GTFOH with that Dummy Stumble routine.

Anywhoo.......I got a REAL-LIVE **VINTAGE** 1972 Telecaster too Get Busy with. I haven't named Her Yet, She's a Newbie around here(Suggestions?).

But nonetheless, we have a **Hot Date** scheduled for: RIGHT NOW!

ValHalla!!!!

Who is sicker, odin or dashi?

I am more curious about the Telecaster. The guy may not know football but just exclaiming 'vintage' means he can't be all that bad.

The 'regular' name I was using got hijacked and I just figured why bother with it?

Posted by: To Be Serious For a Moment | May 14, 2013 at 11:05 PM
=====================

Hey, if that's what you do too talk **FOOTBALL** I have no problem with it.

The fake names don't really mean squat too me either. It's the content of what the FAKER is spouting.

But, that's life here at Dolphin's In Depth. Here's to hoping we have some good FOOTBALL convo's on the nest "ISSUE" that comes up.

Have a Good Night.........ah.........um........WHOEVER The Hell You Are-LOL!

ValHalla!!!!

Meh..not buying the whole 'blog hit' thing and never have. No offense AT ALL but I really think it's just a product of what I said before. It's mostly--even overwhelmingly--the REGULARS here posting under all these innumerable names. Hence, the whole 24/7 thing.

That explanation has always made a lot more sense to me unless there's some sleepless cyborgs posting here, too.

Agreed on the rest.

odin

Until what time will you be cut and pasting drivel tonight? 4am? 5am?

Dude you are the blog sewer. You'll never geti it, you make a total pathetic fool out of yourself with all your cut and pastes and idiotic bwaaahaa. More than that, you consistently ruin the blog with your annoying bs.

This blog just might be good without you and the dashIdiot.

Dashi,

Thank you for you post at 8:37PM; however, I think I should have made my point clearer.
What I'm talking about is often called a "Scrape Exchange" which takes away the "read" in the read option. In traditional 4-3 or 3-4 defenses, the DE has QB responsibility and the OLB takes the RB trailing the QB--who can be a blocker, a receiver, or a pitch-back option as a runner. But, the scrape exchange flips those assignments and gives an unprepared QB fits trying to read the DE who isn't defending him. And, if the QB starts reading the OLB instead, you go back to the traditional assignments.
This, along with safeties running clean alleys, and locking the CB's in man coverage defeats the read option provided the defense can set the edge.

I knew Derrick Thomas when he played at the University of Alabama back in the late 80s.. fun guy to hang out with. sack machine!!! he blocked a lot of punts as well. the one i remember most is the one against Penn state.

As for YOU TROLLS DASHI and LOL and whatever other names you guys have .. go have ur little tit for tat GIRLY fight somewhere else. Why do yall care what each other thinks? Just check into a Hotel room already and get it over with. Both of you are hated by everyone on this blog because yall think everyone care what you think or how you feel about things! got news for you guys.. NO ONE DOES ... get over yourselves

VOLCANOES OF HAM!

EVERYONE TO THEIR HUTS!

Does that mean we just signed 3 late rounders for 6.93 Million?

If that's the case then I think we'll surpass the 10 million dollar prediction that many were estimating here.

Does all of that count against this years cap or do we break it down according to the length of the contract?

That must be the case, if not, we're looking at another 20 Million just to gert the rest of these rookies signed.

I don't envy Dawn Aponte. She has to base her work on the new CBA. I've heard it comes in 5 volumes, each of them almost a Foot Thick.

When Sol(ar) flares it means change. Always so.

We will see the mastery(or not) of Spoelstra in how he plays Wade in these Playoffs.

Don't know why they don't use EM force more. It is cheap and efficient. It could power Flying Saucers. hehehe

Yes, Sol is its name. Officially.
