Things could go much better in the future than a lot of fans are thinking right now. There has been one crap storm after another. I think the Dolphins are due for some good fortune. The general consensus is that the Titans are going to release RT David Stewart. Stewart was one of the best RT's in the NFL for several years, and he even had one ridiculous year where he gave up no sacks and only a handful of pressures all year. He would be a risky sign, but I for one think he just had bad year full of injuries and can come back healthy and continue to play at an elite level for a couple more years. Coming off injuries and at 32 his price should be very reasonable. Eugene Monroe may be much more likely to hit free agency than a lot of people think. The franchise tag is out of the question for the cap strapped Ravens. Even if they released Ray Rice and Terrell Suggs it would still be difficult to cover the tag and bring back the other 5 UFA's they don't want to lose. http://www.spotrac.com/free-agents/nfl/baltimore-ravens/ The rumor is the Ravens are hoping to sign Monroe to a 8 mil a year deal. Even that would probably mean letting Graham and Ihedigbo walk. It is a foregone conclusion that Oher will walk but they desperately want Arthur Jones and Dennis Pitta to return, and they would like a couple other guys back as well but it isn't possible. I believe the desperate Dolphins would offer a good deal more to Monroe than the Ravens could.(I would throw caution to the wind in this case) The other good news is that almost all the other teams with some cap space aren't in need of a LT. The AZ Cards aren't in any position to get in a bidding war and the Jags just traded him so forget that. The Browns and Eagles and other teams with cap room have good to great LT's under contract. Sign center Dominic Raiola to a two year deal and move Pouncey to RG, then draft LG Xavier S'ua-Filo in the 2nd after trading down from the #19, then OT James Hurst (with the 3rd from trading down),C Gabe Ikard in the 5th and OG Spencer Long in the 6th(obtained from trade down) and the Dolphins could go from having one of the worst OL situations in their history to having one of their best. Why move Pouncey?? Because some of us believe that he could be an even better zone blocking RG than he is OC; and because the free agent OG market is horse crap this year, whereas we might just get a smokin deal on a center that could be solid for a year or two while a rookie like Ikard gets stronger and develops. If the Dolphins release or trade Patterson,Matt Moore, Nate Garner,Trusnik, Daniel Thomas, and Jimmy Wilson it would clear enough cap to cover all three OL FA signings and Monroe's six year deal could be structured to have the cap hit come later on after Ellerbe and Wheeler are released in 2015. There would still be plenty of cap left to sign Grimes and some other mid tier free agents but Starks and Soliai would probably be walking, which IMO, was their desire anyway.
