    if starks walks a cheaper alternative is cullen jenkins and i'd be looking into his market...short term deal maybe 3 years...

    don't agree with tagging sean smith but it looks like the corner market is gonna be thin...
    This is what really worries me about the CB market this year. There just aren't that many good corners on it, let alone ones that can stay healthy. Smith's agent knows this and this will definitely drive his asking price up. The more I think about it the more I wouln'd mind so much franchising Smith. I think the other FA CB's are just as risky as Smith but at least he's proven he can stay healthy. Plus then we would have that cap money next year to either sign Smith or look elsewhere. Any idea of which CB's hit FA next year? Also it would give the rookies we draft (assuming we do) time to adjust to the speed of the NFL, while possibly bringing them along slowly and not thrusting them into a starting role. One can only hope though that Milliner falls to us at 12 as after signing a FA WR, CB will probably be our biggest need come draft day.
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    LaConfora: Free Agency Article...Dolphins Take

    Couple things are true here, and I think we can all agree...

    1- the cornerback market will be overvalued based on UFAs. Draft is the way to go for DBs, bang for buck isn't there in free agency

    2- If there is one area Ireland struggles drafting, it's offensive playmakers. Lets bring in proven guys that allow him to draft his strength...defense.

    That's why I've advocated signing 2 receivers and drafting Eifert. Offense will instantly take off, and we wouldn't have to deal with the learning curve for a rookie WR. Draft a DE or trade up for Milliner. Win the Superbowl next year in the home of the Jets B-)

    no idea on the cb market in 2013...most the high end young guys will never hit the market anyways...i don't think smith should be tagged but in the event it does happen it buys you time as in another year to take your raw rookie you draft this year and get him up to speed and is smith sucks you can lose him next offseason...i know one thing i'm more worried about having sean smith in my starting secondary the next 5 years than i am say one more year...if he improves you can always make a decision on him after the season...

    but miami better invest in some corners with high picks asap...

    This caught my eye from the article.

    "The Jets know corner Darrelle Revis isn't playing for just $6 million this season and will be trying to trade him, sources said"

    Interesting if true...

    Darrius Heyward-Bey from Oakland is intriguing. The guy is just starting to show the ability he was drafted for and I think he's matured past the 'project' stage to be an actual NFL WR that still possesses a ton of speed. He could provide much of what Mike Wallace does for a MUCH cheaper price tag.

    Bey averages 500 yards a season. We already have that guy.....We need productive NFL recievers. Wallace and an early pick.

    I just don't see Wallace being a good fit here with this current team, he is a deep threat, a one trick speed pony of sorts. We need a guy who can do it all consistently like Jennings, I don't think Bowe has the makeup this team wants so that defaults me to Jennings.

    There are still plenty of cuts coming from teams who need to get under the cap maybe some other WR's will be options soon to go along with Jennings and the other two big named free agents.

    its just the spin thats being used to justify not wanting to pay him top dollar around here. that guy is the clear cut number 1 receiver on the market and its not close. what is close is what is a better fit for building a team, between spending top dollar to get him or to save some money for a greg jennings. but he doesnt just 'run the fly'... and for a guy like tannehill who has the tools to move around and extend plays in the pocket, Wallace has shown an unbelievable ability to help his quarterback when things break down
