    Ross and Ireland all smiles after free agency haul



    http://www.miamidolphins.com/news/ar...3-a0c02d3eac99

    “We certainly think we are (better). We’ve made some really great moves to get younger, get faster, get more explosive and get more physical, so I think some of the moves that we’ve made are certainly upgrades in what we’re trying to get accomplished offensively and defensively. It’s a combination of free agency, other player acquisition time periods and obviously the draft.”

    Sounds good to me. Seems like they have a plan and are sticking to it.

    Ross is coming in to his own as an owner...

    he can probably already smell all those new millions that will follow a revamped stadium

    I never thought I'd see the day inside the Dolphins organization where they would be the team that I believe executed a damn near flawless offseason. Never thought I'd see it...

    ..but they've managed to achieve nearly exactly that. The combination of guys they got rid of, combined with the way they attacked free agency added up to almost mirror what I would consider a perfect offseason. The only thing that would've made it perfect up to this point would've been adding John Abraham and Eric Winston.

    As always, it's going to be up to the front office to complete the task by having a sound strategy heading into the draft, and plucking TALENT at cornerstone positions. Loaded with 11 picks, and the draft being deep at precisely all of the positions where Miami's most pressing needs are... it's going to be hard for even Ireland to screw this one up.

    Believe it or not, the Dolphins should feel very good about where they're at because it's going to be awful difficult for it not to get even better a little over a month from now.

    Mistake not trying to re-sign Reggie for a 2 year deal at the amt $ he got in Detroit and then using him more as a receiver IMO. Beyond that though, Ireland has not undergone a magical transformation - he's more like re-moldable clay from the Rancid Tuna's archaic philosphy (all he's ever known) to submitting to our most promising (in a long time) HC's vision. Whether it's on Jeff's own volition or Ross's edict, you can definitely see Philbin's fingerprints on all these moves.

    I don't think there's any question we're going to address OT and DE in free agency. I'm almost certain we'll sign one of Vollmer or Winston, and we're interested in Osi. They've even alluded to that much that they're not done. This would leave us a plethora of talent at CB to choose from in the draft, and then go BPA from that point on.

    ...oh, and F your avatar and sig with an AIDS chainsaw.

    The unmistakable first sign that spring ball is here at last. Good luck down on the bayou this year.
