    Dolphins: Negotiating with Fiedler

    Fiedler is expected to make between $3 and $5 million per year
    but my concern is also signing bonus since that counts ag. the cap 4ever (for the most part).

    Good...with his signing we can focus on the real needs at this time...

    Running game and stopping the run....

    I believe the the Fins will do the smart thing and calculate signing bonuses well....so far we haven't been hit over the last 3 years ....

    Being over the cap is just a mere result of some contracts becoming accelerated this year which will be re-negotiated...

    Last time we were hit in the cap for years was in 1995 (the great Don Shula)....our hits were:

    1996: 17 million
    1997: 13 million
    1998: 8 million

    all dead money (guaranteed) to players who already were playing somewhere else....

    I.e. we paid Cox in 1996 and 1997 while he was already playing for another team....

    This won't happen again.....

    uh-oh

    from http://www.gopbi.com/sports/football...ins/01/29.html

    The biggest hurdle appears to be guaranteed money, including the size of the signing bonus. The Dolphins would like assurances that if something were to happen to Fiedler they would not take such a big salary-cap hit.

    The recent signing of Chad Hutchinson by the Dallas Cowboys could affect Fiedler's deal. Hutchinson, who has not played in the NFL, received a $3.1 million signing bonus and $5 million guaranteed.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Jay knows what the team can do money wise, and my bet is that he signs a fair deal.

    Jay Stays.........and for the right price

    I don't see Fiedler signing elesewhere or holding out for more money to the point where we wouldn't match it. He's too smart not to resign with the team that gave him his 1st real shot of starting. A team that has an improved WR corps (look out for Chambers next year) and a running game that'll be priority one this offseason.

    1st round: OT-Levi Jones
    3rd round: RB-Jonathon Wells

    I'd be happy with Fiedler, Chambers, Jones and Wells heading into next season playing the 4 most critical positions on offense under Norv's tutledge.

    Jay thinks he is worth 5 million a year, but he is WRONG! He is worth 2.5 at best. We would get more out of McNown and for less money. Fiedler is a below average starter.

    He is worth about 3.5 mil a year. I hope he signs for 3 million.

    Jay Fiedler is an above average starting quarterback.

    He isn't Dan Marino. Above average isn't good enough for him.

    I think the anger that Ice has is for Jay's inconsistency throughout the entire year! I'll say it again. Jay is a backup quarterback at best. I will almost guarantee you that if the offensive line is healthy and if we are able to address our running game in the offseason, that Jay will still be INCONSISTENT(i.e. making stupid decisions/throws into double and triple coverages)!
