Guys, Lastest on Sam Knight is the following: The Dolphins have offered Knight a little above the league minimum. Sam has offers from other teams that are giving him much more money. Dave and Co have promised knight that if he signs this one yr deal he will be taken care of next yr. Sam and his agent have a concern that if knight gets hurt hes out a few million dollars. Both sides really want to get this done and it may have to be that our money guys get creative.
thats all i have for now.
Before the draft Jr, Jt, zach all took sammy out and talked to him about the team and our vision. I hope he bonded with them and it pushes him in to signing one of those incentive deals.

DAMN IT, hope they work something out.
"OFFSEASON? We don't need no stinking offseason"
we need to get this done...imo we need to sign knight, griese,another wr and a veteran lt...if we have to cut somebody or restructure somebody to free up some money than we need to do it as quickly as possible...
Todd Perry was willing to restructure his deal before the draft and the Dolphins backed off once they figured they had enough cap money to do what they were going to do..maybe he's still willing so we can get knight.
We can not drop the ball on this one! this is a big signing . some of you may not see it as such but it truly is. I am a huge knight fan and think he can step right in and be the big hitter we need in our d backfield.
If the Dolphins sign Knights,the Dolphins on paper will have the best defense in the NFL.
I'm really getting tired of our standard league minimum contract offer. I know that's what has kept us in such good cap shape, but I worry about the reputation we may be gaining as lowballers.
Better not make promises they may not be able to keep. Fins are already over the 2004 cap
IS Dave himself assured he'll be here next year to push through with his promise? Knight needs to get that in writing signed by Spielman.Originally posted by aquaman
