Hold on, contract not filed in time. Elvis Dumervil has been officially released


Anyone here interested in paying this guy to change horses?

No. Too small for our defense.

Why is he too small? Wouldn't he be a 4-3 DE which is what we run and need? Have you heard we are looking for "bigger" 4-3 DEs?

Not saying we could afford him anyways

Get him down to Miami right away. Dumervil and Wake would make a vicious 1-2 punch at pass rush.

I don't know. Could be genetics. Could be stunted growth. I am not his physician.

43 defensive ends are typical 6'2 to 6'6 and typical weigh 250-275 lbs. They need to hold up against the run.

Dumervil has been pretty bad against the run, even from the 34 OLB.

He only makes sense for the Dolphins as a situational pass rusher.

The Dolphins won't pay him $2 million more that Cam Wake either. I'm more inclined to see if Olivier Vernon can take the next step forward this year. There were times last year that he flashed some real potential as a pass rusher. He came out of college a year early and most scouts said that if he'd waited another year that he'd have been a 1st round pick.

One way or another Miami needs another edge rusher. Vernon was a rookie, but was also inconsistent. IMO, Miami needs to draft another young impact rusher and/OR sign Freeney or Abraham as depth to provide pressure. Personally, I would sign Abraham for a one year deal, if the money is right as he was still very effective last season.

If Miami swapped out to linebackers that are known for blitzing and not very good in pass coverages, they better have more pressure coming from the front and especially when those backers do drop back into coverages. If we had trouble covering New Englands's tight ends with Dansby & Burnett and we are now worse with Ellerbe & Wheeler, hope they do have a better plan.

Sorry to tell ya but Abraham was already given his chance with us. A report came out yesterday that we got him a flight and scheduled a meeting time for him at the facility. Well for reasons unknown, he missed the flight. He bought his own ticket for a later departure and came down but the Dolphins FO had already moved on.

Quote:
Free agent DE John Abraham showed up at the Dolphins' facility last week, but may have never met with club officials.
There have been conflicting reports on the visit, but PFT's "best guess" is that it occurred Tuesday night. Per NFL.com's Jeff Darlington -- a former Miami Herald reporter -- Abraham was at the team facility but at a later date than the Fins expected. Abraham reportedly missed his initial flight, but booked a new one on his own dime to rekindle interest. Dolphins sources tell Darlington the team still did not meet with Abraham. After all that, Abraham remains a free agent

I found it interesting and I don't blame this regime for its integrity
