    2013 offseason cap situation

    So I have heard we have 60 million to spend next year... After resigning Jake long who obviously will be a ton of money and are other free agents how much do you guys think we should have?

    Unless Jake is willing to take a pay cut he can walk. Locking up a ton of money in a LT is something losing franchises do. Jakes play is not worth what he makes

    Dolphins at about $90 mil for 2013 as it stands. Their 2013 FAs include Jake Long, Reggie Bush, Randy Starks, Hartline, Fassano, Fields, Sean Smith, and a few others you guys would be more aware of.

    Anyone who thinks they can ignore the LT position, needs to rethink. Bush might be gone, but it all depends on how DT plays this year. Still, I doubt Dolphins bring back Bush. Starks should be resigned. Hartline was rumored to be in contract extension talks. Fassano and Fields should be resigned. Sean Smith is a tricky situation. He's not great, but with Davis gone, Dolphins may lean on signing him back to the team or a decent deal.

    Long will require about $12 a year. Starks might get about $5mil if not more. Hartline should be pretty cheap, $2.5mil. Fassano should be good value too, probably around $3 mil. Fields might demand a big contract for a punter and my guess would be $3.5mil (lechler got 4 years 16mil). Sean Smith should be a value pickup as well. All this will add up to about $25-30 mil. Dolphins need another $8mil to sign their rookies AND in-season reserve.

    I don't think Dolphins will have much cap space in 2013, just enough to sign their major FAs, or replace them with equivalent value.

    The situation with the Jets will be VERY similar.

    Why is Jake Long on the 2013 list you linked to?
