Long time to go before the season kicks off, so I wanted to post and get other peoples opinions on what they would have done if Jeff Ireland over offseason.
This is my go at playing Dolphin GM anyway.
Kevin Burnett - Dannell Ellerbe signed for approx 7m a year, where Burnett was about 6m and rated by PFF as the 4th best 4-3 OLB 2012, who can also play ILB.
Davone Bess - signed Gibson for more than what Bess would have earned. Why?
QB - Matt Moore 2yr/8m
WR - Brian Hartline 5yr/30m
CB - Dimitri Patterson
K - Dan Carpenter
WR - Mike Wallace 5yr/60m
RT - Tyson Clabo - 1yr/3m
CB - Brent Grimes 1yr/5m
CB - Antoine Winfield 1yr/3m - I would have paid more for the most underrated corner in football IMO.
TE - Dustin Keller 1yr/4.25m
OG - Matt Slausen 1yr/850K - we signed Louis for twice as much, yet he coming off injury.
1 - DE - Bjoern Werner - Odrick back to his best position. DE rotation of Wake, Werner, Vernon. DT rotation of Soliai, Starks, Odrick.
2a - CB - Jamar Taylor
2b - ILB - Arthur Brown - Could start day 1. Athletic and good against pass. Would have saved so much money drafting LB & IMO Brown & Burnett better than Ellerbe & Wheeler.
3 - OT/OG - Dallas Thomas
4a - OG/C - Barrett Jones - great depth
4b - FS/SS - Phillip Thomas - again depth as not much behind Jones & Clemons
4c - DT - Jesse Williams - Starks & Soliai FA 2014
5a - RB - Joseph Randle - better value than Gillislee
5c - Caleb Sturgis
7a - CB - Jordan Poyer - Cant have too many corner
7b - OLB - Chase Thomas - Better player than athlete who dropped due to combine
Not far different from Ireland but would have saved a ton of money if not throwing contracts at Ellerbe, Wheeler & Gibson. Please post your opinion
