    Thoughts?
    He straight up said the team should be a 1-2 players away from Superbowl. I don't think he signs with any team that didn't make playoffs last year.

    This is a pretty strong draft for excellent pass rushing prospects. One of the best will fall to us at #12. Before I'd consider a guy that used to be great I'd grab a great DE/sackmaster in the draft. It depends who falls our way. Cornerback is a big need also so that may be what we do in the first. I'd like to go offense with our second round picks. Eifert at 42 would be really fortunate. Perhaps Hopkins later in the second. In FA we have to make a splash at reciever. Wallace or Jennings but my mind is open to other options should they present themselves.

    IMO Freeney and Woodson are only sub package players at this point to be brought in with the nickel defense.

    I think we have to sign him just to keep him from going to NE and ruining our lives next year. He has owned Jake, that is supposing Jake is even here. I think he will go to someone else though, maybe the Giants or Falcons. Who knows. But I would love for us to get him.

    Progress Stopper? Who knows.. We need sack artists! Brady's vulnerable now. I wouldn't complain if we signed Freeney to make him a little more uncomfortable in the pocket.

    Antwaan Barnes played hurt last year and had a mediocre year playing few snaps. The year before he had 11 sacks as a situational pass rusher.

    Forget Freeny! He is done! Barnes is younger,cheaper, and a better pass rusher. Barnes isn't an option as a starting end or LB, but he is a great ST's player.

    Dwight Freeney Hitting Free Agency

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...agent/1923921/

    One year after saying goodbye to longtime quarterback Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts are parting with another of the franchise's all-time great players.
    The team announced Friday that it would not attempt to re-sign Dwight Freeney, whose contract expired after the 2012 season.
    I am posting this in the "Miami Dolphins Forum" because it has everything to do with our direction in free agency. I am not positive if this guy is going to demand an elite salary as likely his last NFL payday, but if we can sign this guy to a bargain deal, Ireland should jump all over it. We need to have a play maker on the opposite side of Wake badly, we cannot waste more of his prime years, this guy is special, and cannot take on 2-3 tackles every time the ball is snapped. In signing him, we could also focus on another position with our 1st rounder. Under these circumstances, I would take into consideration trading up for CB Dee Milliner and swapping our 12th pick with a top 8, and trading our 3a pick as well. Oh yeah, and every time I think of Freeney, I have that vivid image of him constantly thrashing and abusing Jake Long midway through last season. Good times. Thoughts?
