    This Winston situation reminds me of why to be good in the NFL you have to be able to draft. There are average players on the FA market asking for substantial money, and chances are there is a team out there that needs it bad enough that they will pay it (look at us and Marshall the DB). But you can't fill a team doing that because there is just not enough cap space.

    We need to find an answer at RT, but crippling ourselves in other areas because we have to drastically overpay there isn't improving the team.

    Marshall played FS for the better part of the Cardinals run when Kerry Rhodes went down.

    He has starter experience at the position. He played FS better than he played CB last season.

    "...the best quarterback I believe is Dan Marino..."
    "If he played with these rules, he'd throw for 100,000 yards."

    Would have been nice to sign him. Oh well. DO NOT BRING BACK VERNON CAREY. He's way too fat for a zone blocking scheme.

    I hope not. He can't be THAT bad. I mean, you really have to suck if you're comparing him to Gerbil.

    As long as you keep him away from corner you are ok. he is a horrible corner. I hate when people use the word versatile to describe a player that is terrible at the other position lol

    Winston got 4 years and 22 million per PFT:

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/17/winston-gets-22-million-over-four-years/

    Pretty reasonable if you ask me, I wonder what we offered. I understand not putting much more money into the line w/o a QB or many weapons . . but why even flirt if you can't come up with 5.5 million per for one of the better RT's in the game?

    They signed him for 4 years at $22 million. I think that is reasonable for him. We should have signed him. He has connections here, he wanted to come to Miami. His brother works for the Dolphins. The FO blew this one!
