    With the first pick of the 2008 NFL Draft the Miami Dolphins......don't pick

    We allow time to expire. Putting St. Louis on the CLOCK.

    Saving us MILLION and MILLIONS on a signing BONUS.

    And then we pick our guy AT OUR PRICE, This only works if our pick is anyone other than Jake Long because thats who StL is taking.

    So then we take whoever....


    What do you think?

    Its a SMART BUSINESS MOVE. Its LEGAL, and they'll probably change the rules after we do it.

    The Vikings did this and actually dropped a few spots because of it a few years ago. I don't know if this was their thinking. I believe they said they were discussing trading the pick and didn't think the rule would be enforced.

    When the CLOCK expires we are just PAST DUE on the pick we DON'T FORFEIT IT we can pick AT ANY TIME. STL is pick J Long and ATL is wanting Ryan.

    It's stupid, your team comes off looking like classless boobs.

    Besides after the Vikings did it the 2nd time the NFL put a stop to it I remember reading.

    Isn't that a double negative? are you trying to confuse us?

    Anyways, I'm hoping this was a joke...in our position if we PASS, every staff member needs to be buried alive. Even considering the signing bonus...

    After a 1 and 15 season,we would look STUPID allowing the time to run out on
    the first pick of the draft.
