    Why can't we do both with $50+ million in salary cap room? Its not an either/or option.

    Make me a list on who you resign and how much you pay him and who you bring in from FA and how you pay them as well.

    Uh Im not making you anything buddy. Not even for xmas. If you want to put together a list, go for it. If not, just know we have a lot of flexibility with cap space this year - and re-signing Jake Long and free agent WRs is entirely possible.

    We have others phins that will be FA too.

    Jake Long
    Sean Smith
    Reggie Bush
    Brian Hartline
    Randy Starks
    6mil for the draft
    WR we bring it will likely cost 10 mil +

    Jeff Ireland has said that Jake Long will finish his career in Miami so I don't think he will be allowed to walk after this season. However, if they let him walk I do think Martin will be the one to take over at LT, assuming he doesn't completely bomb these final four games. Then I think the new RT probably comes in the 2nd round, not the 1st.

    I disagree that any WR we bring in would be $10mil/year, but even if it was that high, signing those players and that FA WR is possible with $55 million in cap space.

    We have too many players to resign and too many needs. The Dolphins need to re-sign Starks, Hartline and Sean Smith and add guys like Greg Jennings (WR), Cliff Avril (Passrusher) and Brent Grimes (DB) or Tracy Porter (DB). With Long's injury history, it is too risky to have him take up cap space that needs to be spent on those FA signings.

    add the 19 ufa/rfa or the replacements we will have to sign will end up being around 17-19 mil as well. We would be able to use jake long 13-16 mill on a Tide end like cooker/pass rusher he's just isn't worth the money.

    Letting Long walk would be a massive embarrassment for Ireland. I don't kow if he wants to expose himself to that...

    You think he really cares anymore? He has been operating with the knowledge that most of the fanbase hates him since 2010...
