    GM Free Agent & Draft Strategy

    FREE AGENT & DRAFT IDEAS


    Re-sign Miami Dolphins Free Agents:
    Brian Hartline 4 year 28 million dollar deal (5 mill 1st year)
    Chris Clemmons 4 year 18 million (4 Mill 1st year)
    Randy Starks 5 year 34 million (6 million 1st year)




    Sign the following Free-Agents:


    DE/LB Michael Johnson to a 6 year 50 million dollar deal 6mil first year.(6.5, 7.25, 8.75 , 10, 11.5)
    LB Paul Kruger to a 5 year 48 million dollar deal (7 million first year)
    WR Greg Jennings to a 5 year 50 million dollar deal (8 Million first year)

    If these number seem to low or high on contracts give me an idea of what you think they should be.




    Draft:
    1A Trade #12 overall pick with Cincinnati for their 1st round, #5 2nd round pick and swapping 5th round picks. Cincinnati targets Barkevious Mingo.
    1st round 21st overall pick (Keenan Allan or Cordralle Patterson)
    2nd round #5 pick from Cincinnati CB David Amerson
    2nd round #10 CB Xavier Rhodes
    2nd round #22 pick from Indianpolis OT Lane Johnson
    3rd round #15 TE Joseph Fauria
    3rd round #20 RB Montee Ball
    4th round #14 QB E.J. Manuel
    5th round #22 OT Chris Faulk (From Cincinatti swap)
    7th round DL Depth
    I got $500 on the Dolphins to win the Superbowl.

    RE: Free Agent & Draft Strategy

    Add another FA WR and you have a deal. I want to go into the draft with Wallace and Jennings and then draft a WR #1. If that means we have to cut someone so be it

    First year would be 5 mil. But I think this will be along the lines of a deal he will sign with us or somewhere else. If we can sign him for less I am definitely for that.

    So by signing MJ we force Cincy to target Mingo. Pretty slick. There being a lack of high 1st round offensive playmakers, I wouldn't be surprised to see Cordarelle continue to rise and go well before 21. Not crazy about back to back position picks, and prefer Bell to Ball, and not that big on EJ, would rather take another WR. Fauria's a pure blocker and unless Clay or Egnew make a jump TE would still be a playmaking black hole for us. It's a fun scenario though.

    I think that 1 of the 2 top receivers in the draft will be gone by pick 21 whether it be Patterson or Allen. QB in the 5th round to me is a must. I dont see Matt Moore being here for us next year. Unless the current regime sees Pat Devlin as a competent back-up you have to have some QB competition. I like EJ due to his size and arm. Played for a decent program had 68% completion percentage and about a 2 -1 TD ratio. But in the 5th round if he happens to fall that far you cant ask for much more. CB back to back picks is a must. I think we should let Sean Smith walk. He is just not a ball hawk. We need to try to find some CB's that can be play makers. I think they can be the 2. Ofcourse I also thought Vontae and Smith were the 2. TE on the other hand I think Fauria is a good fit and good size. We need a big endzone target and he can be the one. If not what other TE would you prefer at this draft position.

    I could see Bell replacing Ball due to his better receiving skills out of the backfield. I could live with that replacement.

    Good attempt, only your plan leaves you with no seam-threat tight end who also can block. i.e. no very good tight end. Fauria is not an elite or upper level tight end, he's a glorified wide receiver. Dolphins will take one of the top two tight ends (Notre Dame or Stanford) through the draft or take one in free agency to help out Tannehill. Look at the Patriots, Falcons, Ravens & 49 ers in the 2 conf. championships, notice anything in common? All have very good/elite tight ends who can do it all, NE have two of them. Dolphins will take notice and get one for Tannehill. I hope. Overall nice direction for your offseason plan though.

    I agree to a certain extent regarding the TE position. But I think it is time to be a leader not a follower. I know the NFL is a copy cat league, and it is very easy to get sucked up into the TE hype. I do think that we need a big target for endzone production. Fauria has good hands and is a big body, no breakaway speed, and an above average blocker. We need to revamp our whole offensive strategy. Get a solid running game and an even better receiving game. I think right now we have about a top 12 defense which has the making of a top 5 if we can ever get a scoring offense/or offensive playcaller.

    Having a quality TE isn't hype. Being able to have a quality mismatch w/ LBs and Safetys isn't a fad. Do we need to name HOF TEs who have done it before, nothing copy cat about getting and keeping a quality TE. Give me Eifert and a FA..Cook or Keller, and let the mismatches play out. It makes you find different schemes and players to cover them. Seeing NEs LBs struggle with Pitta and Dickson should be a eye opener to all.

    But hey, the fascination to find mediocre TEs is a thing of priority here. Fauria is a young cheap mans Fasano.

    Almost every franchise that drafted a young QB, also brought in a quality TE. Here in MIA, we have a guy who disappears and all people here say is, he's a great inline blocker. Well I want more for Tannehill. I want him to be able to identify his mismatch and exploit it. This past season, he had very few mismatches to take advantage of. Fasano and the young Fauria are in the same mold IMO, but I want TE to be dynamic.


    Do you people forget what it was like watching CHanning Chowder consistently trailing a TE? This fad you speak of, isn't a fad, its basics.
