    With all of these rumors going around I thought it would be nice to have a thread that we could add them as they come up. It sure is turning out to be exciting with all of these possibilities surrounding the Fins.

    _1. Canty interested in joining Parcells again
    _2. Dolphins interested in looking for a new Center (Brown, Saturday..etc.)
    _3. Dolphins possibly interested in Dansby (looks like Dansby will be tagged)
    _4. Boldin trade talks with the Fins
    _5. Asoumgua being sought by the Patriots :tantrum:
    _6. Will Dolphins make a bid for Dallas' Miles Austin?
    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/02/16/will-dolphins-make-a-bid-for-cowboys-austin/


    Lets see how many of these end up panning out. (Those that didn't will be in Italics)

    Any thoughts?

    Yeah it almost pained me to type those words. If the Pats land him I will throw up in my mouth.

    Extremely unrealistic, but I'd love it if 1, 2, and 3 were to happen. I'd settle for any of those three by themselves.

    Yeah that topic was being discussed on the Sirius NFL Red Zone show. As per the Wilfork situation where he's in the final year of his contract, and only making 800K.

    It is true that the pats will have something like 22 free agents to resign after next year, and having 45% of your cap space in 5 players. But the issue may not be as big of an issue because 2010 is uncapped. So if they can get through 2009, the tight cap space in 2010 might not be an issue to resign some of the players who would be then set to hit the open market.

    Should be intersting but not sure if their 2009 cap space would allow them a shot at Asoumgua this offseason. Their not in a great position right now thats for sure.

    I heard about the Pats wanting him...they have less cap space than the Raiders. Then the 2010 free agents from the pats is like an all-pro listing of talent. If they sign him...they will lose 1 of the big names from the 2010 list. :)

    I hope they do not sign him...but it would make their defense that much better.

    They are going to get some really good picks out of Matt...that number will be gone before the draft starts.

    They will have a ton of picks...:(

    3 AND 4 are the dream for me! At the least I'm hoping 3 though, he'd fit perfectly into our D! I'd even take 3 and Asoumgua to us over 4! I think the trifecta realize the seriousness of our situation though. We HAVE to get just as much better this offseason with the rediculous schedule we have!

    IMO Saturday is too old. I'd go somewhere else there. A younger guy who has been in the league for about 4-5 years now. Maybe the player from Pittsburg.

    Well the Canty rumor has resurfaced again. As it has been said before our DE position is one of our deepest. I would love to add Canty to the mix but i don't see us having that much $$ wrapped into it. He may be an upgrade but is it worth the money to get him. Only if Merling is being moved to OLB do I see this happening.

    For the love of all Ive been saying for 2 years now WE NEED HIM!!!!!!!!!

    Open the bank and pay the guy. hes young and awesome on a totally crappy team he would improve our defense by 7 points a game easily.

    We can not have him in NE... I don't care what we do just do not let NE get him..

    Yeah but if Brady is gimpy and not able to regain his old form and Matt C is dealt they could stink worse than the Bills and Jets. :lol:

    I would take Canty but the money he is looking for scares me a bit. I have heard he is looking for Tommy Kelly money....in the 50 million area if not more. I want to persue Bryant McFadden and Nate Washington. Midlevel FAs are what this FO loves.

    I think this could happen but it wont. We have a nice group along the front line already.

    This will happen IMO but I'm not sure it will go through free agency.

    I believe he's asking for the same money Pace got and we threw Pace a lot of money before he signed with the Jets. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up here but the franchise tag in Arizona is likely to be used on him in my opinion.

    Possible but not going to happen IMO. I don't see us moving multiple high draft picks for a wide receiver, regardless of how good he is.

    I think this could happen. I know someone pointed out the salary cap but I wouldn't be surprised to see them moving a draft pick for Asomugha.

    The most realistic of the 5 is definately Dansby if he does not get tagged. He would be a great asset for us and I really hope he doesnt get tagged so F/A can be just that more interesting.

    I see the Patsies sign NA, then trade Cassel or Brady for a 1st rounder... the rich get richer!

    Its fun to speculate but IMO none of the above scenarios are likely to happen for the Dolphins because this regime and particularly Jeff Ireland believes you build through the draft .


    Jeff Ireland
    http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports...s-tonight.html

    That doesnt mean we wont be active in free agency but probably we wont be involved in some high profile signings which involves draft picks.

    Rather we will try to reload and replace our free agents whose expectations are beyond the parameters that this regime has set for the corresponding positions.

    Some one like LB Scott could be feasible

    Going thru the Draft is the best way to get playmakers and help your team. They are younger and cheaper but alot will come in and try as hard as they can to prove themself. Also they will come not in as a star and try learn everything they can. However some big signings don't hurt as long as you don't put your team in jeporady with cap and giving away picks.

    I thought there was speculation that Brady may not be ready to start the season and could be out longer rehabbing from his injury? If this is the case they will need to hang on to Cassel. When Brady is healthy he is still one of, if not the best QB in the NFL and its hard to picture them trading Brady away.
    Does the Pats have any free agents this year they need to resign?

    I don't think they will get two 1st rounders for him. But I think San Fran or a team in dire need of a QB like them, will end up giving multiple picks for him...maybe a 1st & 3rd...

    The Pats will have 2 1st rounders on draft day.

    Them trading Tome Brady. You have a better chance of Heidi Klum coming to your house and marring you. Then you would win a million dollars.

    It is not going to happen.

    I think that a player can be traded after the tag...for less than 2 1st rounders.

    Not sure...but wasn't Jared Allen tagged and traded last year for the a 1st, 3rd & 3rd round picks?

    The tag is mainly used to scare off suitors and make the player stay for at least another year. But if a team wants time to talk up trades, they just sit on him with the tag and continue to shop him.

    Yeah there is no chance that Tom Brady is traded. Even if they knew for a fact that his knee was never going to be the same, they could not afford the PR backlash from the fans & media for trading away ONE OF THE BEST QB's since DAN THE MAN.

    ...by the way...LOVE THE SIG of RB. :)

    A player can be traded for less than the tag picks. The picks just make it unlikely a team will still go after that player.

    I agree though, unless Brady is still badly off, Cassell will get moved for at least a 1st and NE will be picking twice in round 1 ... again.

    And to that note that color of Aqua on his jersey in the sig is unreal. I would love to see the dolphins use that shade of Aqua.
