    Football is not basketball.

    Cant compare the off seasons. Just a whole different spectrum.

    For the love of God it's about CAP SPACE. Riley created it with a vision, Ireland created it with a vision.

    Its not absurd at all, you're gonna get some idiots yelling "MADDEN!!" but in reality Jennings and Wallace are just players in a pool of free agents that we can easily afford to sign. Some of these same idiots want to sign Smith and Long, again the reality is Smith and Long are basically free agents at this point and will cost $18 million themselves. If you're going to spend $18 million on 2 free agents I'll take Wallace and Jennings over Smith and Long all day.

    Guys, signing both Jennings and Wallace/Bowe is not out of reach, it is quite feasible actually...

    You're essentially swapping Jake Long (currently $11M), Brian Hartline ($1M), and their contracts out of the old offense for a new offense of Jennings and Wallace for about $6-7 million more, and a ****load of draft picks to address the hole moving Jake creates (which is actually at RT because Martin makes the move to the left. So Hartline gets swapped for Wallace + Jennings, save money letting Bush, Long, Fasano, Starks walk for younger cheaper alternatives Miller, Martin, Clay/Draft pick, Odrick.

    That leaves you with holes only at RB(depth), TE, RT, RG(optional), Pass Rusher, 2 CB's (If Smith Leaves), and S (If Clemons leaves)

    With about $25-30mil in Cap plus 1,2,2,3,3,4,5,7,7 draft picks to play with.

    If this offseason is properly executed, we should have a COMPLETE ROSTER with absolutely 0 GLARING HOLES, just some weak spots/depth issues but nothing major

    MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

    Adding James, Wade and Bosh to the Heat upgrades 60% of the starting lineup to superstar status.

    Adding Jennings and Wallace to the Dolphins upgrades 16.66% of the starting offensive lineup to playmaker status. An offense being run by our talented if still developing QB behind an o-line being overhauled (again).

    See the difference?

    Not saying it's a bad idea, but the parallels are not that eerie and the outcome is not predestined to be the same. Free agency in basketball vs football is very very different.

    Theres 53 other players on a football team.

    Basketball has 11. And is way more "superstar" dependent than the NFL.

    Its definatly doable, BUT it would put alot of pressure on Ireland's draft. He'd have to absolutly HIT on starters with the first 5 picks in this draft to compensate for the money being sent to the WR position. Its a risk, part of me doesnt like that idea but if I came home one day and read that news on FH, I guess I'd fell pretty excited initially...

    WR:Wallace/Jennings/Bess/Rishard Matthews
    FB: Charles Clay (this gives you more option on the fied).
    TE: Fasano(blocking) and a draftee.

    This would allow us to load up on defense through the draft(a DE, two CBs)

    You harp on playmakers, yet advocate the resigning of a mediocre on his best day, TE. This is where you lose all credibility in your hypothetical.

    That was a different poster, not me. And i think everyone can agree that we'd love to keep Fasano as the #2 TE, but that we need to procure a seam threat TE as our #1.

    I know your dying to win this argument, but maybe you should just move on.
