    2007 Offseason Transactions, Draft, and Depth Chart

    dAccording to Alex Marvez, as of 12/3/06:

    "The Dolphins have $91.2 million counting against the NFL's 2007 salary cap of $109 million. That figure is comprised of the cap figures of 35 players currently under contract and 'dead money' that counts toward players no longer with the team. A cap number is generally comprised of base salary, roster bonuses and a prorated portion of signing bonus."

    Here’s a link to the Dolphins 2007 salary cap figures:

    i think your on the money. if we sign briggs or thomas, our team really starts looking good. that big FA plus hitting on our first couple draft picks gives us 3 new starters. immediately a new starting olb instead of spragan, a new lt, and a future defensive starter either dt, de, or db i think.

    so our secondary stays the same continues to improve, we upgrade our outside linebacker and left tackle situation. THENNNN our only wholes are at cb and wr if culpepper returnsto form.

    I believe this team was a great blitzing linebacker away from having THE best defense in the NFL this past year. That's why I want a guy like Adalius Thomas. And I have it so that we don't really sign any other 'big' free agents (other than Vonnie Holliday, I guess he'll get a pretty big contract), so hopefully we can afford Adalius.

    Essentially, the transactions I have the Dolphins making, gives them a really similar team to this past season, with a hopefully franchise LT in Levi Jones, and an All-NFL LB in Adalius Thomas, who can and has literally lined up at any position on the defensive side of the ball.

    so we're not gonna draft a single offensive player in this draft other than a tackle? even though there is a glaring need for an offensive playmaker on this team...

    The offseason needs to start with firing Mike Mularky, hes been total trash as a coordinator. Then hire a new coordinator and get new people based on what he needs to make his plan succeed.

    firing mularkey is the way to go. it's not worth keeping him just for the sake of continuity. what do we do if our offense sucks with him calling the plays again next year?

    Maybe i'm in the minority, but I think Chambers can be a number 1. Booker, Welker, Hagan provide solid depth all around at the WR position.

    Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams at RB. Randy McMichael at TE.

    With a healthy QB, this offense does not need a "playmaker." As far as the players go, it only needs a healthy Daunte Culpepper.

    Then, I agree a new O-coordinator could be addressed. Although, I think a healthy Daunte Culpepper could make Mularkey look just fine as an O-coordinator.

    Nice research. However, we are scoring ~10points a game and I have serious doubts that we have any playmakers on this team on offense, and yet there are no offensive players in your draft other than OT?
