From Adam Beasley....
"I'm hearing Brandon Myers is an option for the Dolphins. Have to think they'll kick the tires on Dustin Keller too."

Myers looked good for the Raiders last year!

Yes today has been incredible. Hopefully Miami will sign Eric Winston and Dustin Keller. Ireland is working it today.

They were reportedly after Cook, so my guess is Keller and Meyers would be the fall back. Could be letting the initial rush wear off, but they need so sign someone..

We dont have a TE right now, unless its Clay or Egnew...

This has been an interesting day.

I never once thought they'd mess with the LB core this year. I figured they load up on offense, then find inevitable replacements in this year's draft and next.

Obviously it's a team being made in Philbin's image, but there's going to be a TON of transition to deal with this year. All the draft picks, a LB core that needs to learn to play together, starting CB's who need to be unearthed, possibility of the Big Weirdo manning the most important tackle spot, and Tanny forming chemistry with his new offensive pieces.

Really curious to see what happens with the TE position. All we've got is Clay (coming off a torn knee late in the 2012 season) and EgDooDoo.

Considering the blitzkreig Miami conducted today I have to wonder if they are really interested in Keller or Myers. Perhaps it was Cook or bust. Now maybe they focus on drafting a guy and using Clay as the H-back. I still think Clay could develop into something good.

Keller has had Sanchez throwing to him in NY. I have to think his numbers would go up on our team.

ArmandoSalguero Of the approximate $20M in cap space still left, Miami will budget approximately $6M for draft, $3M for practice squad, $2M for season.

OT, TE, CB is 9 mil enough to take care of that in free agency?

I do not want Christmas in March. I want Christmas in Jan. Teams that win in March normally do not win during football season.

I am glad Ireland has been bold. Did not see two LBers, being signed.

ArmandoSalguero Correct ---> RT @pauldavidjr: Patterson and Marshall are 2 candidates to be cut, IMO, creating more cap space.

Miami can still cut Patterson or Marshall for extra money. Very possible they draft a CB or OT at 12 as well. Maybe they "reach" for Eifert at 12. I'd have to think he doesn't make it past the Giants now that they've lost Bennett.

Still plenty of possibilities.

I've been saying it is a matter of time before Patterson and his $4.6 million cap number are "resolved". No dead cap either.

Marshall would be a cap savings of $5.3 million. We have A LOT of cap flexibility, even with all the moves we've made today.

Get a decent CB and I'm thrilled with FA. Leave the rest for the draft.

Possible cap casualties include Dimitri Patterson ($4.6 million savings), Richard Marshall ($2.2 million savings), Davone Bess ($2.6 million savings) and Dan Carpenter ($2.6 million savings).

I'm not saying the Dolphins will release those player for cap reasons. I am saying they are all candidates if the team needs cap room.

Call it whatever you want, I love what Ireland is doing. As Dphins said, Ireland is being bold and he is doing a great job of bringing guys in and keeping cap space for 2014.

figured there would be a batter chance of signing 2 corners today than there was of us signing 2 linebackers. Strange opening day for us.
