From what I understand, the majority of personnel people in most NFL front offices are spending most if their time on scouting college players. This really is a NON story. KFFL come out with these one line "feeds" like they are newsworthy. I don't expect any real negotiations to happen until after the season. After all what's the rush? We have from the time the season ends until the beginning of free agency to get deals done. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Personally, I'd rather see them play the season out before determining their value.
Or, as others mentioned.. let them walk. We aren't winning with them here anyway.
Enjoy your burrito.
Remember when they twisted the Rosenhaus comment about how he talks to Ireland about all his players every week and somehow that became "the Dolphins are negotiating with Hartline on a new contract"...you can't make this stuff up...actually yeah you can.
so who fills in for reggie?
thomas who has yet to play a full season and he is the 2nd string Rb imagine if he was the starter,think he would get hurt even more
miller may have been good in the ncaa but this is not the same game and he has yet to prove he can be a #2
When I said during the draft that the Lamar Miller choice was a "for the future" pick, this is what I meant. They drafted him as a potential replacement to Reggie. No, I'm not saying they *should have* or it will *work out*, but that was my first thought when it happened.
I really can't see the dolphins letting Long go with a resume and history like his. Despite looking worse than he ever has before he still ranks 5th on profootballfocus's pass blocking efficiency measurement and has only allowed 7 QB pressures this year (the same as Joe Thomas and only 2 more than Ryan Clady). What i would hope for Long is that it makes him accept a top 5 LT contract and not demand to be the highest paid LT. The other issue I have with letting long walk is the lack of talent the Phins have already. Letting him walk would force us to waste a pick on a LT when we can't afford to. As for Bush he's a RB and they are easily replaceable and we have 2 solid young backups anyways. Smith depends on the cost to me as we have 5 picks in the top 3 rounds and he is replaceable though it would be preferred not to have to as as he is a serviceable CB.
