Hi all,

I am new to the forum, and have been a Dolphins fan since 1985. I was 4 years old then. I am very pleased with the Dolphins signing of Mike Wallace and others but I am still wondering why we revamped our LB core and did nothing about the rest of the defense?

Any reactions?

Thanks,

Andy

You can't address all your holes in free agency. The LB corp was going to need to be addressed in 2014, so the Phins addressed it earlier and got younger and got those salaries off the books for 14.

So far the Phins have addressed WR and pretty much revamped the entire WR corps and this group now is much better. They add a TE that can attack the seam of a defense and now seem to have a very legitimate chance of bringing back OLT Jake Long.

They have CB Brent Grimes in right now, so we will see what the Dolphins do in the rest of free agency before we look at what will need to be addressed in the draft.

Right now, it setting up for a OG, CB, DE in regards to needs.

I like what the Dolphins have done, as they have added free agents in the 20's to the roster. These guys are in their prime.

Last, but not least, Welcome to Phinfever.

if we don't sign an offensive tackle then I think they'll try to get Terron Armstead at the top of the 2nd round. His stock is on the rise as he has supreme athleticism for a tackle.

Welcome tot he boards Andy! One thing is for sure, we got faster and younger at the LB position. One step at a time, I'm excited for the draft.

Four years old is about when I can remember starting to watch the Dolphins as well, though that was in '91 for me. Welcome to the boards, enjoy!

Welcome to the forums, Andy. I like the moves, but I am not too sure if we've improved things a whole lot. We should be better than last year. I think it all depends on Tannehill and Martin's development.

I was 4 years old when I became a Dolphimaniac! It was 1984... good year :)

Welcome to the boards, and I think we are all a bit energized. We have a few wholes left, but 12 picks to fill them!

Hey now, 26 isn't exactly an old timer! But it's nice to see the younger generation fans

Yup, I'm 18 so I've never had the experience of watching the Dolphins really do well at all, true fan. :yay:


Lol and I'm just messing with you about your age brother, but I'm sure some of the dudes on here are well past establishing themselves in society. BTW I checked out your blog, great layout, great work man.

Don't worry about it man, I love me some good natured ribbing, no offense taken whatsoever! And thanks so much for the blog views, I appreciate it greatly! All the credit for the layout goes to my fiancee'. She does all the work on that front, I just provide the content

With all these new guys, it's good that the Dolphins are playing in the Hall of Fame Game. An extra preseason game to iron out the kinks and gel as a team is exactly what this team needs.
