    Steve Hutchinson or Bentley? Your Thoughts?

    If the free agency market gets too expensive for the Dolphins this off-season, the best bet would be to target primarily G Steve Hutchinson.
    There is no doubt in my mind that Bentley is a great Center and would be a huge asset to the team but to sign both would mean a large hit to our cap. With Hadnot playing solid, he can move over to center and play that position just as good as any lineman in the NFL. I believe we need to upgrade the secondary and the defense with at least one free agent signing. Charles Woodson would be a pretty good acquisition to out secondary. Considering that Sam Madison is out to go play with Surtain in KC.

    Both will be costly, thats for sure....I would take Bentley because he can play G and C...He's younger...and he was the difference maker of the solid NO offensive Line....Hutchinson plays next to the best LT in the game...but in short I'd love to have either.

    Good post. The line is moving in the right direction, and we need to consider whom we need to add to get it to the next level.

    IMO, a top center is a much more important acquisition than a top guard. Everything starts in the middle. Picture McKinney getting pushed back into the quarterback, the complete absence of a push up the middle, the inability to run pulls and traps effectively, and the failure to complete secondary blocking assignments. LeCharles would go a long way toward fixing that. Remember the team when we had the likes of Langer and Stevenson?

    Bentley.

    He's one of the, if not the, fastest lineman in the league.

    He's also mean on the field.

    And young, I think
    ...GOOD LOOK...

    Hutchinson. It's not even close who is the better player. Miami has two young Center prospects already.

    Steve Hutchinson is a better player. He's 28, Bentley's 26. Not a big difference there. But to tell you the truth, if the Fins ended up with either
    of these 2 guys I'd be real happy!

    Toss up. Hutch is better all around, but we are weakest at C so Bentley might be the better add. Either one is a big boost to the OL.

    :mrt: Hutchinson is going to be one of the 'most' expensive players in free agency and will command a signing/roster bonuses in excess of $10 million. Bentley will come some millions cheaper.
