    Dolphins' Releases/Re-structures??

    The Dolphins will look to re-structure some contracts and add to their cap space this offseason, along with cutting some players. A good place to start is with one main player: Karlos Dansby. Karlos Dansby has around an $8M cap hit for 2013, and that will likely be non-negotiable. However, his cap hit takes a jump straight to $11M for 2014, the last year of his contract. That is a very high number for an aging LB. On the other side of Karlos Dansby is Kevin Burnet who signed a Signed a four-year, $21 million contract. The deal contains $9.8 million guaranteed. His 2013 salary is $4.35 mil. He could be a cap casualty also.

    Another player is Richard Marshalls. Marshalls Signed a three-year, $16 million contract. The deal contains $6 million guaranteed, including a $3.5 million signing bonus. His 2013 numbers are$4.55 million. Richard Marshall has to be considered a major dud for Jeff Ireland as he was the Dolphins primary acquisition. Dolphins placed CB Richard Marshall on IR after the fourth game of the seson. He wasn't very impressive when playing and the injury has plagued his season.

    Another intriguing player is Dimitri Patterson. Patterson was only acquired off of waivers by Miami on 12/18 but played the entire game this past week. Patterson was a player the Dolphins liked before he signed a three-year deal with Cleveland in the off-season. Now that they have him, Miami may choose to look elsewhere in free agency and the draft. The journeyman may have to restructure his contract as he's set to earn $4.5 million in 2013, but he has a chance to stick as a starter or third corner in Miami. Sean Smith is an impending unrestricted free agent and Nolan Carroll/Jimmy Wilson have struggled. With Sean Smith being a free agent, he certainly would control another $4-$5mill easy. The question now is do the dolphins want to pay three corners five million a year?

    Kevin Burnet Lb $5,700,000 mill

    Dan Carpenter K $3,000,000 mil

    Ritchie Incognito OL $5.3 mil

    Rishard Marshall CB $5.7mill

    Karlos Dandby LB $8.5mill

    Dimitri Patterson CB $5mill

    I can't wait to see some athleticism at our linebacker position and would love to see Dansby traded this offseason. He isn't worth what we're paying him and he isn't quick enough, period. Burnett needs to have some competition for his spot next year with some draft picks.
    2014 Mock Draft

    1. Zack Martin - OT/OG - Notre Dame
    2. Chris Borland - ILB - Wisconsin
    3. C.J. Fiedeorowicz - TE - Iowa
    4. Trai Turner - OG - LSU
    5. Brandon Thomas - OT/OG - Clemson
    6. Storm Johnson - RB - South Florida
    7. Calvin Barnett - DT - Oklahoma State

    When a player is cut, his contract is voided, not picked up by the signing team.

    I believe that's only true if he clears waivers.. If some one claims them before he clears wavers they pick up the contract

    Cutting Dansby just creates another hole. Not gonna happen. Then you carry dead money against the salary cap.

    Oh yeah. Cut Dansby and Burnett. Because we clearly have better options on this team

    Kevin Burnet Lb $5,700,000 mill - Should Restructure

    Dan Carpenter K $3,000,000 mil - Needs to be cut... I was a fan of his, but not anymore. as a matter a fact he should give some of his salray back to the fans this year

    Ritchie Incognito OL $5.3 mil - See ya, I like his play, but not for that price. Pro Bowl alternate or not

    Richard Marshall CB $5.7mill - See ya! his track record in AZ made him worth the price, his play this year needs to get him fired.

    Karlos Dandby LB $8.5mill - Restructure, but if he doesn't we can live with this number fo 2013... but something needs to happen with his 2014 salary

    Dimitri Patterson CB $5mill - Kinda hard to say here, I don't see paying a cut CB from Cleveland $5mill a year, but that is fair market Value for a #2/3 starting CB in the league.

    Richard Marshall played one season in AZ not really a track record, his career as a starting cb in Carolina should have prevented us from overpaying him.
    That Patterson is such a good starter they cut him before the first season was done on his newly minted contract lol

    Interesting in how for most of his career he has not been good as a number 2. He damn sure wasnt good here this season

    I doubt many people will restructure esp knowing we have cap space, I mean I would like to hear that pitch.

    ugh, i meant to type AZ and Car. this is what happens when you type fast and don't proof read... prior to this year Marshall played in all 16 games a season since his rookie year. His play prior to this year justified his contract, now that he's injuried and didn't appear to be picking up the system fast enough, it isn't!
