I have not read anywhere that Ayodele is a free agent. They are talking about cutting him. He still has a year or two left on his deal.
I think Ted Ginn is your most likely target. Camarillo's team friendly contract might make him attractive to WR starved teams. I've said it before, but maybe a guy like Merling, who maybe needs more time to emerge, makes a nice piece for teams looking to convert to a 34 defense.
Not sure much really happens, just proposing some out of the box ideas.
on another forum we mentioned the same about merling ,maybe a team like denver would have some interest??? [merling and a pick for marshall???]
ginn is a obvious choice for a trade hoping to get a 4th or 5th for him
it would be nice to get a pick or 2 from one of the players below
OLB Joey Porter – The Dolphins owe Porter $1.2 million on bonuses by March. If they believe the aging pass rusher is worth the bonuses, plus his $3.6 million salary in 2010 he’ll stay for at least one more season. If they decide they don't want him around he'll be cut loose, becoming an unrestricted free agent.
ILB Akin Ayodele– He’ll be 31 next season, and while he’s still productive (finishing third on the team with 71 tackles) he’s due $3.25 million in the final year of his existing deal. Ayodele is great in the community, and in the locker room, but he struggled with a couple of injuries last season.
ILB Reggie Torbor – The team’s backup inside linebacker had an average season (37 tackles, one sack, one interception), but is due above average money ($3.05 million) in 2010. While it's ideal for the linebacker unit to get younger, it's hard to justify letting both Ayodele and Torbor go in one offseason. Torbor also serves as one of the top special teams contributors.
CB Jason Allen– The team’s 2006 first-round pick hasn’t established himself as a reliable cornerback in two seasons at the position. He's due $1.27 million in 2010, which is a lot for a backup cornerback who primarily served as a special teams ace. But cutting Allen means they create another void on the roster. It's more realistic that he'll be brought to training camp and asked to compete for playing time.
