Harper missed the Super Bowl with a sprained ankle and has played outside the spotlight in Indy, but some people think he's one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the league. I think he would be a really good pick up in the free agent market to help us at the cornerback postion that we need. Plus I dont see him back with the colts because they dont have much cap room and have to sign Dwight freenny still. What are all the dolphins fan opinions on this.

I think your right, I wouldn't mind seeing Harper in Miami next year. I'd say he is a solid number two corner or a very good nickelback and would certainly be an improvement over Andre Goodman. I think the fact that he didn't have a huge playoff, ala Asante Samuel, will keep his price tag reasonable as well. So long as his wife doesn't stab him again, I think it would be a good move.

Oh, I thought Harper played in the Super Bowl, but he just wasn't 100%, but anyway I would love to have Nate Clements, Asuante Samueles, or Harper.

An improvement over our current CB's sure. But I'd wait to see if we can get Clements or Samuel first.

Harper, Allen, Daniels and Goodman would be a solid top four... but I still think we have a greater need for a top guy, a Samuel or a Clements. Harper is just about in Allen's class IMO, which is alright, but nothing fantastic.

His age and size are two major detourants, but the biggest one for me is that he isn't much of in any upgrade over what we already have. There is no point in brining in a guy that is older to take the place of a younger guy that has the same skill level.

If he was cheap and younger it would make more sense but I would guess playing on the team which won the Superbowl (Albeit not in the game itself) probably raises a player's profile and makes him cost more than he would have otherwise. As people have been writing, he's not a huge step up from what's there already and is not young for a pro football player.

At 32 years of age he is another short term solution. I thought Miami was on a youth movement, 32 sure doesn't look like it and besides that by next year or probably before next year people will be starting dump Harper threads.

We need a young DB in the draft not a 33 Year old FA. If he will sign a 1 or 2 yr deal maybe as a backup. We do NOT need a safety folks. J Allen NEEDS to play. We have Bell and Hill that can start and Allen competing for a chance. We can draft in a lower rd another combo type of guy who can play the nickel or dime while he learns BUT we do not need to pay or draft HIGH another safety. DB - YES!! Safety - NO!

IAFINFAN
03-10-2007, 12:30 PM
Nick Harper would be a huge mistake. Miami needs to stop with the older players and take a chance and bring a younger guy in and develope players to fit the system Miami is trying to run. Nothing good can happen bringing in a 33 year old vetran who is a stop gap. This is the type of move that has always hurt Miami and it needs to stop.

Hamlin would be nice but the concern is he is not the best coverage safety although a ferocious hitter. I wonder what he and his agent are shooting for as far as money. IMHO Harper would be a depth move. Don't expect him to compete with any starting Corner position. He would be a nice backup though.

Will Allen is a far better corner than Nick Harper.

And it's very unlikely that an Indianapolis CB signs for Miami. Harper plays and has played in a cover 2 system for 7 years. It's not a system we run.

No More Visits Scheduled For CB Harper

Indianapolis free agent cornerback Nick Harper may have the Titans at the top of his list for teams he would like to potentially sign with.

The City Paper reported Harper scheduled no more visits after he attended meetings in Nashville with Titans management on Thursday, March 8.

The Titans have been reported to be in the market for a cornerback through either free agency or the NFL Draft.

It seems to me players don't really want to come to Miami anymore. This is a losing franchise and players don't want to come to a team that is re-building. Said to say, but Miami is not an atractive place for free agents anymore. Sure we may get the Joey Porter type players once a year because we spend big dollars, but we are not a high priority team anymore. This is why the Stallworths and Whasingtons of the world turn us down and go to the Patriots. The only way to get these guys interested in coming here again is to build through the draft.

Expect a couple of more losing seaons.

No....the reason is nobody else offered stallworth or washington is because nobody offered them a high price except for the pats who completely over spent for these guys who are very high injury prone. so go ahead take them, and when they blow up in there faces oh well, same goes for the 29 milion dollar welker sure he's got heart but hes now break out player like chad johnson or housmanzadah which i didnt spell right but who cares, and besides if they were each half as good as they are exploited to be don't you think the eagles would of kepth them.

Exactly, last year in FA the Fins signed about everyone they could get their hands on and we were a trendy pick for the Super Bowl and how did that turn out? I like what the Fins are doing by only spending money and draft picks where needed and not just grabbing up risky FAs because they can, but are getting quality reliable FAs. So I think the Fins are doing a good job and are building the team nicely.

Players might be taking a "wait and see" attitude towards the Fins this year because of the new coach, plus what we've done to the offensive side of our roster recently. No one wants to get stuck on a doormat team.

You mentioned building through the draft... I agree we definitely need to make a strong statement there. And if some of our younger players step up this year and we break in a few rookies on the rise, all other things being equal (like $$$) players won't be reluctant to sign with us next FA period.

Nick Harper is better than any cornerback we have on our team. Compared to Will Allen, he looks like a shutdown HOF corner. I hope we can sign him to an affordable contract because there's no way we can get Samuel and the only thing this defense lacks is a decent cover corner.

What ? Nick "toast" Harper ? You are out of your mind..And if he's so great why is he still available. Don't you think New England would of already signed him..:lol:

Anyone that wore a Colt's uni last yr doesnt know what run Defense is....:lol:



So true!

colts won a super bowl, and shut down all the RB in the playoffs, so i think they know what run defense is, just didn't feel like doing it til the end of the year.

It seems to me players don't really want to come to Miami anymore. This is a losing franchise and players don't want to come to a team that is re-building. Said to say, but Miami is not an atractive place for free agents anymore. Sure we may get the Joey Porter type players once a year because we spend big dollars, but we are not a high priority team anymore. This is why the Stallworths and Whasingtons of the world turn us down and go to the Patriots. The only way to get these guys interested in coming here again is to build through the draft.

Expect a couple of more losing seaons.

It really doesnt have so much to do with where the player wants to sign but moreso who will pay them the most...Alot of players have "visit" us over the years and decide not to sign with us because they get a better offer somewhere else. Remember we doint have the cap room to sign an adalious thomas or steve hutchinson. Players go where the money is first, and where they want to be second...(except for dielman)...

And actually, I am always hearing players saying they want to play for miami in the sun and for a historically winning franchise.

So it isnt that players "don't" want to play for us...Its that we cant pay them what other teams can.

Remember the key words are MONEY first and TEAM second

Adam Schefter reported on NFL network that Nick Harper will most likely end up with Titans. He said Harper has a visit with the Vickings, but he is leaning toward the Titans. There was no mention of harper visiting the Dolphins. Just wanted to let all those on the Harper bandwagon know he is not coming to Miami.

I like Harper ,he is a good corner can help our secondaries (which were not the best last year)
