    Any free agents any of you guys still want?

    Personally I'd love to snag Winston or Clabo. Also depending on the price someone I'd be really interested in if the price was right would be Peyton Hillis, he had injury problems again last year but he did have a 100 yard game against Indy week 16 last year and I think he'd be a nice complement to Lamar Miller (better power back than Daniel Thomas anyways). Maybe we are happy with giving Thomas another year and try out Gillislee who knows

    Great veteran leadership for our core of youth

    Wouldn't mind seeing Woodson at all either. I bet he signs with a team like Baltimore though

    Nah, Hillis just can't shake the injury bug.

    ATM, after the draft and UDFA signings, aside from tackles it's hard to see us signing anyone like Freeney or Abraham.

    John Abraham. Pair him with Wake at DE and Dion Jordan at LB on first and second down. Hes still among the very best in the league at his trade and would make our defense an absolute force.

    I'd like Woodson, he'd be a great leader and mentor for our young db's! But i guess he wants a shot with a contender!

    Are you comfortable going into the season with Miller, Thomas and Gillislee? I just think if the price is right Hillis is worth the risk

    I don't want anyone at de opposite wake who isn't as good at stopping the run as Odrick.

    I think we go ahead toward getting pressure with wake Starks Odrick Vernon Jordan and wheller

    Don't forget wheller was the 2nd best passrushing 4-3 Olb behind only Miller last year.

    Weren't we like 5th in sacks last year?

    What is an offense gonna do when we sugar the A gaps with wheller and ellerbe, while Jordan is out wide and wake Odrick and Starks on the line. This worked last year with Burnett Dansby and Misi.

    Now we will do it with elkerbe wheller and Jordan, and corners that can jump the ball, instead of Smith and Carroll.

    This is our vision.

    Pressure and tirnovers

    And Gray.

    I am, basically promoting Miller and replacing Bush with a younger, more decisive, better blocking, gillislee

    If we're going to sign a back Id go for ahmad Bradshaw. His blitz pick up and receiving skills are a skillset currently missing from our backfield. Winston at RT would be the other move. Abraham is a pass rusher but hes a 3rd down/pass rusher exclusively at this point imo

    I'm comfortable with them and Jonas Gray as well, the RB position is not what it used to be, it's more and more about the blocking scheme in front of them nowadays, imo. Just look at the Redskins and what Alfred Morris did in Shanahan's scheme, it's like everybody can run for 1000+ yards in this scheme!

    I really do think we have a solid number one with Lamar Miller. Thomas has been very dissapointing though IMO hopefully Gillislee works out though. I didn't mention Gray because I haven't really seen him play since his ND days

    I'd still take Abraham. Yeah, he's mainly a third down player, but he'd find his way on the field in other situations. Second and longs after holding penalties. Two minute drills at the end of halves. What was more frustrating last year than watching Andrew Luck have the time to complete 2nd or 3rd and 17s on our defense? I think Abraham opposite Wake would be a difference-maker in situations like that. That said, I don't think we're likely to pick him up. Ireland or Philbin, one of the two, said that they were looking at Dion Jordan as mainly a third down pass rusher to start with - although I'd hope he'd get on the field more than that as both a DE/OLB. However, they might think of Abraham as a progress stopper.

    I agree on Winston, too. He seems like a good fit and isn't too old. Gotta hope that his being jettisoned by his former two teams is just the result of salary cap issues versus performance/character issues. Not sure if Winston's really still looking at us, but he hasn't signed elsewhere, so to my thinking he's still available. I mentioned in another thread the Dolphins may even double down on tackles, although that's not probable. If they did, I think they'd be basically out of free agent money, ergo, Abraham wouldn't be a consideration anyway. You can't have everything.

    To me, though, those two signings would give the Dolphins the most bang for their buck... and I think they still need that, especially at the tackle position (obviously).

    And we just took Jordan and Vernon is a holdover with upside.

    Bradshaw I could get on board with tbh, he's skillset reminds me a bit of Kevin Faulk's

    I was pretty high on the idea of Abraham here, and still would be if he would take a lower contract offer. I worry that, due to his age, he wears down as the season goes on. only 1 sack the last 6 games of last season. I didn't watch him play, so not sure if he was double teamed or not.

    If we're going to go out and get one more higher priced FA, it needs to be a RT.

    Seems like the fan base is all in on on ( or more) of the OTs and the fins are somewhat cool on the idea...

    Nate Washington. He has played most the receiver spots, has good hands, still pretty fast, & makes some nice acrobatic catches. I think he would be a nice option for Tannehill & would add another dimension to our passing game.

    I'd bring Devery Henderson in at the minimum and see if he could make the team in camp.

    Not on him tho Deej, he tore an ACL back when that does not mean what it means now.

    Point being, his scouting report in sports illustrated coming out of Pitt was "designated right side sacker"

    We have some pieces now, though I'm not 100% on Wheeler and Ellerbe, lots of "ifs" still though, our D went from Parcellian to Jimmy Johnson fast overnight..I really like the switch.

    As for FA's, still think Marshall winds up at SS, Jones at FS, Clemons the backup.

    Didn't want to start a new thread, so I thought I'd lump it in here. Mike Goodson is someone I sort of wanted. RB from the Raiders, signed with the Jets.

    and of course in Jets fashion ...

    Clemons is going into his 2nd year in the same system, that should be a good battle if they put Marshall back there, I'll take CC.

    I liked Wheeler coming out of Purdue, Ellerbe, hey, he played his position on a Super Bowl champion team, next to the best middle linebacker ever..it's not a bad gamble.

    Ringer was of interest to Dolphins before draft. Might be a good addition.
