2014 is not as bleak in terms of cap space as most thought after the huge spending spree in 2013. With a few cuts or releases, Miami could be as much as $20M under the cap for the remainder of 2013 and eligible to roll that money into 2014. This huge rollover windfall COULD set up Miami very nicely going into the F/A period in 2014. Very impressive by the F/O of the Dolphins. This is the most excited I've been in many years as a Dolfan, it all started with the possibility and than reality of Tannehill being drafted by Miami and all the draft picks and cap space that followed. Things really do seem to be looking up. The only downer is the stadium situation.
Patterson is massively overpaid. Has to be restructured or cut. Simple. I like Richard Marshall before injury. Very good in nickel and can also play on edge and FS.
I like Starks more than Soliai, but Odrick would play the Starks role. Also Starks is older so to me Soliai is the one to resign.
In Dawn Aponte I trust
They'll need to roll that money forward to 2014 because a lot of the new contracts they signed artificially lowered the 2013 cap numbers at the direct expense of 2014.
