Q: Why wouldn’t the Dolphins jump on signing Bobby McCray? The Fins just sit there and lose out on dominant type players. It’s ridiculous! Barry, Boca Raton.http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports_fo ... l+Blogs%29
A: While there was a financial component to the Saints’ decision – they saved a reported $2 million bonus by cutting the veteran defensive end when they did –- the reigning Super Bowl champs aren’t stupid. If they thought McCray could still be “dominant,” as you say, they would have paid him the money in year three of a five-year, $20 million deal. However, McCray had just 1.5 sacks in 16 games last year and with the addition of Alex Brown, his fellow ex-Florida Gator, was deemed expendable. Doubt the Dolphins would be interested with all the depth they have along their defensive line. Besides, McCray comes from a 4-3 with the Saints.
