Omar Kelly ‏@OmarKelly
Miami #Dolphins make big splash by signing receiver Mike Wallace to a five-year deal.

If we sign Cook and draft Austin, this offense will have a ridiculous amount of speed.

My guess is that Welker ends up with the Colts or Vikings. I'd love to have him along with Wallace, but we might just have to be happy with Bess.

Yeah I also read on Twitter about them pushing for Cook and bringing in Austin for a visit. Could they actually take him with the 12th pick????

I'm all for it. With the 3 of them the passing offense should have the talent.

I'd love to take Austin, and in the back field go with Miller as our #1 and go get a Mendenhaul or Steven Jackson as our #2. Our offense could take a huge leap this year.

All Tannehill would have to do is dink and dunk to these guys.... 5 yard passes turning into long plays.

$13 million a year, probably $30 million guaranteed. He better get it done.

With Miami's approach in Free Agency. Not only wanting to spend big, but defer money, it means they WON'T be players in Free Agency for next 3 years. Everything now is contingent on great DRAFTING.

Ireland is putting a lot of pressure on himself. He better hit in April with all those picks.


Good point. Don't be surprised to see the Dolphins address linebacker late in the draft... with Dansby and Burnett up there in age, it would be nice to start developing their replacements now.

It does. However, don't forget that they can rework contracts or cut players 3 years down the road when their base salaries are like $12-15m a year.

Jared cook just agreed to terms with St. Louis, and is returning to Fisher who drafted him. 5 years, 35m. No idea how you can choose MISSOURI over Florida. All I can do is laugh at the moron.

They better have enough to resign or extend Rashad Jones's contract next year or I'll be mega sad to see him go.. The Phins need a hard nosed safety to strike fear into the offense! :angry:

That depends. Remember, Hartline got a $7 million signing bonus and 12.5 guaranteed and simply guaranteed the first two base salaries. So after year two, we can cut him and save money.

You can't escape it, but you can mitigate it.
Most teams do it. Most contracts are set up that way.

BenVolinPBP Source says TE Jared Cook is choosing between the Rams and Dolphins. He is currently in Miami

Where did you see this?


I saw a Dolphin fan retweet it from a Rams beat writer off Twitter a few moments ago, looking at other forums now though it may not yet be official. We'll see, but I think he is going to the Rams.

How ironic that the first super bowl played in the cold will be won by the team playing in the warmest climate.

When all is said and done, I think we'll be alright cap-wise. Remember, we can rollover unused cap space. Also, don't be suprised if Ellerbe's contract is actually somewhat frontloaded...

And if we draft well, we'll have a good core for now and for the future. Big IF I know, but the philosophy has really changed around here.

I guess they finally understand that the old philosophy didn;t work. I'm with you on cap space, it will be OK.

Because not everyone likes the cesspool of superficiality that is South Florida?

As someone who was born and raised in Miami and lived there for 25 years, I can attest to Miami sucking. If the 2 locations were the only factors and nothing else, I'd pick KC too.

I can't say I'm happy with this deal. But at the same time I have to admit I saw the writing on the wall the past couple of weeks so I'm at peace with it. I'm thinking that Ireland and Philbin are betting that this kid's best days are ahead of him with a deal like this.

The deal is the product of the market. They didn't want to get into a bidding war for the guy they coveted.

It's $60 million and other teams were not given the opportunity to line up.

Why don't you sit back and enjoy life for once?
