John Denney signs three-year extension

Long snapper John Denney is the longest tenured Dolphins player, having joined the team under the Nick Saban coaching staff. Well, he's going to be around a while longer.

Denney today signed a three-year contract extension that makes him the highest paid player at his position in the NFL, according to his agent Ian Greengross. His extension will pay Denney an average of $1,150,029 per year, according to a league source.

Denney was in the final year of his contract and is now signed through 2016.

“He’s a (constant) professional," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said recently of Denney. "The guy is a hard worker. He’s very good at his job, but he’s not complacent. He continues to work, continues to improve. He takes care of himself on and off the field. He’s doing a really nice job."

Denney made the Dolphins in 2005 as an undrafted free agent. He displaced Ed Perry, who at the time was considered a quality long snapper.

Wise decision.

I suppose Denney has blown some snap at some point. He is, after all, human. But I don't remember it. So that should tell you how well he's done his job.

Denney is the second veteran in the final year of his deal that has signed an extension recently. Last week, the club signed Reshad Jones to a four-year extension. Obviously, the Dolphins are trying to lock up players they value before the season begins.

Betting does play a factor because this is big business, They have actuaries working for them. But it is only a factor on the few games with heavy interest against the sperad.

The initial spread is the pure spread.

Talk of a tougher schedule is nonsense. Every single season good teams falter and weaker teams excel. You never know which one's they will be.

A tough schedule just means you are a weak team. If you are a good team, if you've improved enough, then you should be the difficult team on their schedule and not the other way around.

Citing a tough schedule is nothing but a fairy excuse.

YG....

Do you ever get tired of posting to yourself.....

Make up names....ask yourself questions.....agree with yourself.. ...

Make up "club" names....I mean seriously dude.....how immature are you....because we all know your not young.....

What club is next....the HE-MAN WOMAN-HATERS club.....

Some more. ....corny nick names.....

Kris kry... Good one....how 3rd grade of you....

wow best job in world, long snapper

all vegas ever wants is to even out the bets on each side and make money on the juice

Not a bad way to make a living....

Good for him....

So how will all us Dolphin fans play each other online, when we all want to use the Dolphins. lol

bodine not an excuse if u played denver,pats,balt instead of buff,jets,raiders most likely u arent gonna do better vs the first group. doesnt mean u arent a good team

They make different uniforms rdubs....we will be good....

Isn't there online, where you can be on same team? Although I suck and wouldn't want to be on my own team! Did you download the demo,it became available yesterday. It's funny how they have now incorporated the read option into the game

Someone is a bit narcissistic. Cause you haven't seen him miss. Then it is OK for Ireland to resign him. Cause you said so.

Objectivity. Even Me, Dashi, Mando's biggest critic. When he writes something good I tell him good job.

Now how come you complained that Ireland signed no one last year to an extension. Yet, you haven't praised him for taking initiative this season. A bit hypocritical? No.

There must be some special teams player that can long snap? I guess the league really is a specialists league these days, I mean do you really need two kickers?

I haven't yet rdubs.....

I didn't know it was available yet.....when is the release date?

August 30 for Madden.

Thanks Darkoak...

You guys see Denney scoop up the fumble on that punt...snap the ball...hold block...release...bust arse down field...be the second guy to the ball...recover fumble...

IMPRESSIVE!!!

Only a long snapper...I think not...

The last piece of the Super Bowl puzzle is in place, thanks to Jeff Ireland!

My D will stifle you...my run game will punish you...my pass game will finish you...
TSizzle and MillerTime on the sticks...watch out now!!!

dusty if that was all it was they wouldn't have super computers worth millions of dollars cranking out spreads. They wouldn't emply so many people to program the computers and enter the data if it was just a matter of letting the betters dictate the spread.

It is way bigger business than you realize. It is also evlolutionary statistical science.

Kris August 27 , 2 weeks baby. The demo is nice

I SAW THREE DEAD CATS TODAY.


NFL.com power rankings had Miami at 14...


Posted by: Jack! | August 15, 2013 at 07:49PM

Lets see:

We're 14th in the power ranking, only "12 NFL Teams" makes the playoffs.


Looks like, just as usual, mock drafting come for dolfans in December.....

Just Saying fellas..................

Rdubs even sooner is good! I haven't checked the release since I talked to the Gamespot guy months ago. Downloading the demo now.

Power rankings aren't much...just thought it was interesting considering the hate they can get...especially from their own fans...what happened man??? Am I wrong or didn't your current SN originally originate as an indication of 12 wins on the season???

Well I will go O/U @ 10 and take the O!!!

Screw logic...

14 is a good ranking to start with considering. And a lot better than 17, lol

I understand Casinos, bookies and LV. I don't understand People that bet there.

This team now has enough talent to make heartbreaking losses even more heartbreaking than ever.


This is how see until this assemblage of talent proves otherwise.

Armando,

Have you heard the latest? The "QUEENS CLUB" says you and I have formed a pact.

Rotflmao, it's like the rest of the world has nothing better to do than make their miserable lives even more miserable......

Armando, here's a list of that club making this unsubstantiated allegation:

Queens of the Round Table:

1. Toilet Scrubber Dashi
2. GM Odistank
3. Fin4Losers
4. Darkoak wants to be split
5. Mark In Toronto
6. CRAIGM
7. KRISSY Girl
8. PHONY78
9. More To Be Named(Just so many troll screen name and Im sure you know who they all are)

Well, Vegas has us winning 7 so thats not close to playoffs. And with all the new pieces 7 may be tough to attain. The schedule looks average overall... just tough early and easier late in the season.


14 is a good ranking to start with considering. And a lot better than 17, lol

Posted by: It's Kitty Carlisle day!! | August 15, 2013 at 08:42 PM

Get it right Kitty. Just because you're dead doesn't mean you cant be wrong anymore.

It's 17-0 b-tch....... 17-0 gets you rankesd #1. See '72-'73...............................

Oooooo I'm climbing the list!! Soon I'll be number one in YG's heart!!

Lol.

YG = coolest dude on the blog

Also, with the big fa haul, you best believe we'll be on every team's "HIT LIST". We'll be most every team's reg season sb game. Even the good teams.

We aint sneaking up on anybody after this offseason's fa haul. BELIEVE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If People knew the %s against them at gambling at any of those sites many wouldn't bet a penny on them. The Lottery, millions of chances against you, on down to craps at 6% against you. What can you do to overcome those odds in those places? Nothing. In the long run, you're going to be a Loser.


Oooooo I'm climbing the list!! Soon I'll be number one in YG's heart!!

Lol.

Posted by: Darkoak | August 15, 2013 at 08:52 PM

Hate to disappoint, but I have this pasted on my "CLIPBOARD". You've move no higher or any lower.

Sorry twerp........

The only gambling game where you can be successful at winning consistently is the one that matches person vs person(s). Poker, parimutuals if you like, billiards, others. You know more about that particular game than the opponent(s), you will take their $.

Oh YG you and your cut and paste crap. Amongst your many names are you Odin too? Cut and paste crazy?

I'm really not that impressed with Wallace. Cam Wake and Mike Pouncey are both in the top 5 of their positions and are the best 2 players on the team. Pouncey cant be the face of the team because of the recent hat incident(not the sharpest tool in the shed), so that honor has to go to Cam Wake.

Philbin said that Pouncey has also improved in his awareness, his call outs.

Wake is an unquestionable beast Vazman, that is indisputable. Never here people troll on Wake.

Wake is also inspirational. Seems like an all around good guy to have on your side.

Who is YG???

I'm really not that impressed with Wallace.

Posted by: Vazman | August 15, 2013 at 09:05 PM

Neither here or there. Still, he's a premium nfl wr. Teams still make or fail to make the playoffs with premium wr's. See Megatron, Detroit Lions........

None of the fa's guarantee a playoff spot. But their additions signal we're on the right road. Its nearly guaranteed you'll never see the playoffs with a huge cast of inferior talent.

Just saying..............................

Philbin also said that Will Davis has to be more consistent. Playing 1st string now, probably.

You guys over think this stuff way too much...it's football man!!! Enjoy it...otherwise...what's the flippin point!!!

I hate to Lose.


Oh YG you and your cut and paste crap. Amongst your many names are you Odin too? Cut and paste crazy?

Posted by: Darkoak | August 15, 2013 at 09:04 PM

I'll definitely save this post on my clip board for your teammate Odin to see. If you've noticed he's on your Queens Club list too........

I get the feeling after he sees this post your days of being buddy/buddy are numbered. Then Dashi follows suit........

Somebody's in TROU..........BLE............ LOL...

I've heard good things about E.J. Emanuel and Spiller on Buffalo. Lots of speed and Spiller is projected to be a great fantasy player this season.

Philbin has not been making any comments because TSizzle is about to flop his huge wang down on the table...and you don't go and give away that that's about to happen...you just shut up and watch their faces...

KaPOW!!!

Its true they say Emmanuel is ahead for the starting role...is Kolb that bad??? Is Emmanuel that good??? Maybe a bit of both...

TMH is reporting that Evan Rodriguez is 1st string FB.

I hear Emanuel will be the starter as of now.

How you know that, Jack!? About his wang, I mean.

YG on a tantrum again.

In-yur-ass and Oscar sitting in a tree. K-i-s-s-i-n-g...

STEVEN MORRIS IS BETTER THAN JOHNNY MANZIEL AND FAR MORE ACCURATE

We lost 5 game in 2012 within one TD...3 within a field goal...and two in overtime...finishing 7-9 and we were projected to win how many??? 4... That's exceeding expectations...going into November with playoff aspirations...no reason to think we can't improve on that this year...upgraded in all phases...jury still being out on LT/OL...same coaching staff that overachieved at 7-9 last year...it's okay to be excited...

EJ Emannuel?

I don't know, I think I've watched enough of his FSU games, and never came away really that impressed. All I've ever seen was potential and athleticism.

Never seeing the supposed great potential put on full display. I think his stock suddenly risen only because of the success of the read option qb's.
