Quote:
Miami Dolphins: The Dolphins released inside linebackers Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett with "post-June 1" releases and, as a result, will pick up $10.4 million in cap space on June 2.


Quote:

The Dolphins are currently $7.249 million under their adjusted cap number of $128.223 million and have four picks in the first three rounds of the 2013 NFL draft to sign before training camp.

Essentially, after signing the rookies, the Dolphins should still have about 12 million or so of cap space. There will be dead money next year to the tune of about 3.75 million, but we should have sufficient space to absorb that.


What do you think they will do with that space? My thinking is Reshard Jones gets his extension, but I wouldn't be disappointed to see Brandon Albert still land in Miami. A long shot I know, but we could/should have the cap space to do it.

Jamar Taylor already signed. A significant portion will go to Dion Jordan. I can see us keeping the cap for the season in case we need a mid season signing or for some rollover. If anything, a Reshad Jones extension. Certainly not Brandon Albert.

If Reshad Jones performs well through the 1st few games (like he did last season) he will get his extension. Other then that the money should be rolled over to lessen the cap hit of Wallace next off-season (17 Million I believe). Albert was no longer in play once the team signed Clabo.

Not sure about Albert but I bet we do resign Reshad Jones.

Either extending Jones or using it for Wallace. I think they planned it that way.

I could be wrong here so somebody correct me otherwise but ...

Could we just as easily front load Deion Jordans contract with that cash & start setting ourselves up for 1 - 2 or 3 yrs down the road worth of other lg contract "wiggle room" ?

Roll it over to next season is what I am hoping for.

I'm all good with that as long as a portion of that doesn't end up in the "use it or loose " category. Not really 100% clear on that.

Signing Reshad Jones to a contract extension now or mid season would be cheaper than waiting until the offseason.

Like everyone else, I'd be happy to see Jones get extended or roll the money over, but unlike everyone else I'd also be happy if we used it to bring in Albert.

I understand we have Clabo and that Martin got stronger ( / rolls eyes ) . That doesn't mean you don't still try to upgrade your team if you can, and I believe Albert would be a significant upgrade at LT.

Resigning Starks or Soliai wouldn't surprise me at all. Ireland has got to be eyeing that DT position before he is painted into a corner next year.

I disagree. Both will be 30 next year and each will probably be fighting for 1 spot with Odrick or a new player fighting for the other DT spot

Just read that the Bears traded Carimi to the Bucs for a 6th round pick.

I wouldn't have minded giving up a 6th for him to see if he could work in as an OG.

Would have cost us just over 1 mil in cap , although we still would have had some nice space left for resigning a keeper or two.

His value dropped with the knee injury and trouble with pass protection at tackle. He is a good run blocker. Probably didn't help that he missed the Bears OTA's and thats not a good thing with a coaching change.
