This is a moderated phorum for the CIVILIZED discussion of the Miami Dolphins. In this phorum, there are rules and moderators to make sure you abide by the rules. The moderators for this phorum are JC and Colonel.
Getting rid of Larsen and Branch is addition by subtraction. In the case of Branch, whatever limited value he might have had was greatly outweighed by the size of his contract. Larsen was positively the worst starting guard in the league. I hope Gase signs them for the jets so that he can begin the process of destroying their roster the way he did ours.
The phins aren't going to break the bank for any FAs. You understand they're rebuilding and the first step is getting the cap under control.
The next is not throwing money at FA and being the big winners in march. That hasn't worked out so well.
With james walking and wake to follow we'll be in line for 3rd and 4th/5th round comp picks if we play our cards right.
We have the potential to go into next year $100+mm under the cap with 2 additional mid round picks.
Gase hated Parker. The deal they gave him is in essence a 1 year deal with very little guaranteed. It's a cap friendly deal and it gives O'Shea a chance to work with him. If he gets him turned around then we have him under contract next year on the cheap or he becomes trade bait.
Phis are going the pragmatic route in free agency this year, good for them. Not overpaying James cool. I think Jesse Davis can swing to RT (maybe). Resigning Parker Im ok with, always thought Gase had thin skin with the guy. Whatever this staff wants him on the roster Im ok w/ that, or trade bait. Allen will help the run game, guy treats his run assignments as important as his pass routes. Bringing in other ex Pats Rowe, Carradine and Woltz cool. Looks like we are waiting for 2020 to get a qb Im good w/ that. Tyrod Taylor as our qb, meh. An improvement over Tanne but I think he is just adequate as a qb. Does not throw a lot of ints but does not appear to have a 'higher level' to his game.
