    MERGEDX3: Fins reach out to Law

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/s...,7686958.story

    The Dolphins have reached out to representatives for veteran free agent cornerback Ty Law, to discuss a workout for the five-time Pro Bowl selection, according to a source.

    Law, 34, hasn't played in the
    NFL this season, after starting 16 games for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2007. The South Florida resident has 52 career interceptions, including 10 for the New York Jets, but is best known for his 10 seasons with the New England Patriots. Law visited with the Jets during the offseason, and had phone conversations with the Patriots and Cleveland Browns. In July, he said that he had contract offers, but was waiting for the right opportunity.

    The Jets, Patriots and Browns are coached by extensions of the Bill Parcells coaching tree. Parcells is now the Dolphins' VP of Football Operations.

    The Dolphins are thin at the position, and allowed Texans quarterback Matt Schaub to throw for 378 yards in Sunday's 29-28 loss to Houston. Andre' Goodman did not practice Thursday due to what coach Tony Sparano called "a personal emergency," and Michael Lehan worked in his starting spot. Will Allen, who has been bothered by a sore knee, did practice. Sparano said he expected Goodman and Allen to play Sunday, and spoke highly of Jason Allen as a cornerback.


    Is this the end of Goodman?
    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious

    I'd rather stick with what we have now than sign a guy who was over the hill about 4 years ago.

    I don't see how he could hurt this secondary more than Goodman.

    Id rather have Law than Goodman... Its not like either one of them are plans for the future and at 34, IMO Law is still an upgrade over Goodman

    Good news. Despite his age he would bring a much needed veteran presence to our secondary.

    The end of Goodman? I doubt it, but who knows...

    I would take him, but only for a cheap deal. I trust Parcells desicison making when it comes to this stuff.

    not me.. i'd rather sign law too add depth and the knowhow to our secondary.. the guy is old, and may be a liability.. but if he can keep up with ted ginn in practice or his workout thing... then we should sign him, he knows how to defend the pass.. so if he can keep up with true NFL speed, then sign him, if he cant cover ginn, w'll just have to roll with this crappy secondary until the offseason

    please sign him. we have no young guys to develope. if he were going to come in a nd block a young guy from playing i would be 100% against it. otherwise our CBs outside will allen are pathetic and saying they arent physical is an extreme understatement.

    If he can help us... sign him. I'm not talking about a long term deal here. Sign him for a one year deal IF and I do mean IF he is better than what we have now.

    Like the news, but it wont get done till atleast next week. I think the three games we have lost have alot to do with the Secondary.
