I’ll take him back but on a vet deal with incentives.  He’s still an all-pro returner.

If he could stay healthy, he's a good returner, but isn't among your top 3 roster corners, isn't a safety and is 34 with a history of F ups. 

He's had neck issues back when, I wouldn't be surprised if he might be done. Or come back later in the season. He will play if he wants. Teams will (always) want a cheap vet corner, especially those with return skills.

Take a look at Terrance Newman or Chris Crocker.  They had long careers.  Well actually Neemannis still playing and he’s 39!

Stuff is happening all over the league.  Some big names and some not so big names.  Richard Sherman is a 49er?  WTF.  

Mike won't do shit, we know that much.  Interpreting the non-statements, and reading CJ shows:

1.  Eifert is likely gone.  Someone is going to pay him.  Tough choice but it is one I agree with.  He's too fragile to spend a bunch of cap space on.

2.  They want Zeppelin back, no doubt at a bargain basement price.

Newman is an amazing pro, IMO. 

Eifert has to be gone because he’s been gone since 2015.  I hate it but you can’t drop the market price into him. 

Dolphins released Timmons.  I would take him.

Phins are now in the dark side of winning, lol, the offseason.   They look to be in fire sale mode since their plan has flopped. 

Shuh supposedly gone.  Timmons, Landry gone. 

Timmons I would take for sure but I bet Pitt will be in fast pursuit since Shazier is out for the year already.

Cordy Freakin Glenn

W O W

we just got a massive, and I do mean massive, upgrade on the OLine

The ONLY question with this guy is health. Will he be available on game days?

I still say we take a OT in R1, albeit now at 21, and we could potentially go with a RT instead of a LT

Dear Andy Dalton,

We are pleased to inform you that the monthly premium for your disability insurance is being reduced by 30% due to recent business decisions made by your employer.  Please be aware that the "Maimed or Dismembered" rider will still be priced in the 100th percentile due to, during practice days, your proximity to one "Vontaze Burfict."  

Thank you,

Rocky Cliff

Agent, Unyielding Monolith Insurance Company

Dolphins were saying Timmons went AWOL during the seasons, left the team for personal reasons.

still started the year well and ended with 84 tackles.  I’d like to have him on the roster.  Agree with Amphar.

I'm not happy that we lost Chris Smith as I think the guy is a star in the making, but 3 y 15 mil is a bit rich for where he is right now.

That said, I will grit my teeth hard if he goes on to be a double digit sacker for the Browns this year. Carlos is on the downside of his career and Johnson is basically already DOA, so I kinda looked to 94 as one of our starters-in-waiting, along with Lawson

I wish Smith would have stayed but don’t know enough about rotation patterns with a coordinator change. 

Smith was perfect for interior rush DT.  MJ was too.

Burfict being traded?  What? 

I'll believe it when I see it happen,Linebackers is one weakest spots know defense so why would you trade the face and best one?

signed our best punter :-)

but lost our second-best OLinemen for the second year in a row....of course, we only had one decent lineman. But Flesh Zeppelin played reasonably well, and I will miss him

4 mill was worth it for Flesh.  No reason to keep Ced O and Fisher over Flesh.

please god don’t bring back Bodine to start.

Shazier is never playing again.

Shazier much like David Pollack will come to that conclusion soon enough

Burfict to me is unreliable and a short term solution for anyone due to his repeated concussions and permanent knee issue (going off memory here - think it's his knee).

If he's not being suspended, he's coming out of games constantly with injuries - almost every game there at the end of the season he was taking a knee multiple times it seemed, and he just isn't as effective as he used to be as a result.  IF they can get good value for him - why not.  But I'm guessing they probably won't be able to get enough for him (i.e. a 3rd rounder and/or a starter from the Raiders who fills a need here).

That said, he's their best LB by far, changes that defense - my concern if they trade him, is how they replace him.  They'll need a 1st round/Pro-Bowl level talent or FA.  Hell they desperately need a stud LB like that regardless, dropping down to #21 sort of counts that out most likely (can maybe find a productive guy, but not a big play-making talent that can dominate a game).  I could be wrong there if a player drops down to them, not sure.

Final thought is that I hope Marvin realizes how badly they need LB's - seriously the guys they have suck, and don't tell me Vigil is going to turn into the next Zach Thomas, the guy is just quality depth and a nickel player on playoff caliber teams, not a guy you can count on for 3 downs - plus he's going to get hurt a lot (too small) and showed us that last season, when you treat him like a 3-down LB instead of a situational and ST's guy.

No way is Marvin trading Burfict.  I don’t know who’s reporting it, but I don’t believe it.  Marvin loves Burfict, the physical threat he represents on the field.

So we lost Mr Katherine Webb, which was expected. His 8M/year average on his contract will likely only net us a round 4 comp pick instead of the hoped for 3rd rounder.

Andre Smith signs with Arizona.  

I don't even care.  I want better players.  

Andre was a stop gap type fill-in.  Let's see who else they can bring in.

Time to start having Redman and Westerman practice snapping the ball.

Please.

Yes, I still want a center no later than R3 (and preferably sooner) but we need a vet player ready to go by the beginning of the season. Have them work with Buckethead unofficially, with Barkley receiving the snaps so we get some use out of him.

Boling would be my guess to move to Center.    He’s played every spot in a game for the Bengals but Center.  

Keep younger players in spots they are most comfortable.
