MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 PM) Im getting it for a friend
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Today, 12:31 PM) Iupati would be a great signing. If Harvin doesn't restructure I would not be opposed to cutting him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:47 PM) See this is why you can't be taken seriously harlem
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:47 PM) Orlando Franklin is a FLAG machine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:48 PM) he'd just be our 2014 version of Colon
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:48 PM) HELL NO TO ORLANDO
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 02:42 PM) Still paying attention to what I say, huh?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 02:43 PM) You are the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiings
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 02:46 PM) 0099 said he'd be happy with Franklin too, but you only bitch about when I said it. Seems legit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 03:12 PM) it is legit cause you're wasting bandwith with that bullsh*t
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:43 PM) Wasting bandwidth saying I want a certain player when someone else said they wanted the exact same player?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:43 PM) How much activity was my one sentence really cluttering lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:44 PM) Like I said GG I still love you

The New York Daily News hints the hangup in talks between the Dolphins and free agent Dustin Keller is Miami's unwillingness to offer a multi-year deal.

And why would they, in a market where even top free agents are struggling to breach the $10 million barrier in guaranteed money? Keller is the best remaining tight end, by far, but coming off an injury-plagued campaign where he caught just 28 passes. The longer Keller holds out, the worse his offers may get. Mar 14 - 7:47 PM

1 year deal? WTF??


Miami Dolphins sign tight end Dustin Keller
BY ADAM H. BEASLEY AND ARMANDO SALGUERO The Miami Herald

The Dolphins have agreed to a one-year deal with tight end Dustin Keller, The Miami Herald has learned.

Keller’s brother, Damien, broke the news on Twitter.

He wrote: “What up DOLPHINS! Welcome the Kellers to Miami please! #phins”

Keller visited with the team Wednesday night and most of Thursday before leaving without a deal. He was said to have been unhappy with a one-year offer, but ultimately agreed to those terms. He will be paid $4.5 million in 2013, ESPN reported, and will presumably replace Anthony Fasano in the starting lineup.

Keller, 29 in September, has 241 catches in the 72 NFL games he’s played the past five seasons. He was the New York Jets’ first-round draft pick in 2008.

He appeared in just eight games in 2012 due to persistent hamstring and ankle injuries, but hadn’t missed a game in his career before then. Keller has averaged more than 11 yards per catch in every season he’s played.

Meanwhile, the Jake Long watch moved into Day 3 in St. Louis, as Long mulls whether to stay with the Dolphins or sign with the Rams.

Late Thursday night his wife Jackie gave up an update on Twitter:

“I know you guys want answers right now, we do too! It’s all going to work out for the best and we’ll let you know when we know!”

She added: “Believe me, if I had an answer you guys would know.”

Locally, the Dolphins will also spend Friday wooing Brandon Gibson, a free agent receiver last with St. Louis who arrived in town Thursday. There’s a sense of optimism he won’t leave Miami without a deal. Linebacker Thomas Howard and offensive lineman Lance Louis, both visitors at Dolphins camp Thursday, deserve attention too.

Elsewhere, Dolphins corner R.J. Stanford signed his exclusive rights tender contract Friday, his agent announced on Twitter.

I think it was funny that Keller was saying how he didn't want to get tagged but took a 1 year deal for considerably less than what the tagged salary would have been

I don't understand the strategy here. We let another one of Sanchez's favorite targets walk? We couldn't match a 1 year deal from the Fins? Are we just going to tank this season?

He got hurt in a contract year. Bad timing.

Looks like the team is definitely heading for a higher draft pick in 2014. My prediction of 5-6 wins may end up being generous. Letting go of a guy who is a damn near perfect fit for the WCO and was the team's leading receiver every year but 2012 just doesn't seem wise.

We also can't keep wanting to push money into future years because we'll need to re-visit David Harris' deal again after the 2013 season as he's only signed through 2014.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!
