    Wes is a RFA but he is a special case. Since we didn't draft him if he signs with another team we get zero compensation. BUT we do get the option to match any contract he receives.This however is weakend by the fact that teams are allowed to use the "poison pill" so that another team cannot match the contract (See: Hutchinson, steve and Burleson, nate)

    I think Berger might stick around also. I think he falls under the category of cheap, young, developing talent. Remember he was pushing for a starting spot after Toledo went down. I wouldn't be overly shock if we see him and Toledo as our guards at some point next season.

    Praying no-one offers Wes a big contract (excepting the Phins of course).

    welker

    you folks are about to witness the reason the dolphins suck this year. WE HAVE THE TALENT TO BE WINNERS. the front offices should have already signed welker to a contract. it would have sent a message to all the other players. and kept "the heart" of this team on our sidelines. I do not blame the plalers any more. this stinks from the top down. this team was not that good last year, get real on the 6-0 finish, and it is the same this year---SABAN AND HIS STAFF ARE A MISTAKE. OTHER TEAMS ARE WINNING WITH LESS.

    Why? Welker will get an even larger contract now because his play has elevated. AND he is a RFA! Teams typically don't do contract extensions till year 4 when the player is a vested veteran....Actually singin a player early is bad in the players eyes because it's easy to out-perform the contract because its generally a low dead. For example the eagles just extended shawn andrews and mike patterson. While they gained some extra coin now, and a little security they actually kind screwed themselves. both of their contract salaries will be low if they keep up their pace of improvement, and the contracts are so long the dead cap number is minimal....Basically the team has them by the balls. If they underperform they can cut them at anytime, and if they overperform then they can't ask for more cash. (especially from the eagles)

    Signing early is only good for the team, of for bubble guys who may not get another deal in the future.

    good players will always get a better contract in their 4th year barring injury.

    PLUS- Welker is not considered an elite receiver. he only fits 3-5 teams defintiton of a slot guy. Welker's returns are good however. Generally the market is not that HOTT for this type of player...especially when they are undersized. AND Saban loves welker!
