-Olivier Vernon gets 5 years $85 million, $52 million guaranteed. Congrats to OV but the Dolphins were wise to not even attempt to match that or keep him.I am amazed at the amount of hype around OV. He is a nice player, an above average player but he isn't an elite player by any means and he has been paid elite money. OV makes more than JJ Watt, let that sink in for a bit. OV was the 3rd best defensive linemen on Miami last year when Wake was healthy. God Bless OV, but Miami didn't make a mistake letting him walk. Did they make a mistake not trying harder to lock him up long term last year for less money, probably. But, that ship has sailed now.
-The much talked about trade with Philadelphia went through
As I type this there is breaking news that Miami is one of 4 teams in the hunt for Broncos RB CJ Anderson.So, this is something we will follow in the coming days.
-The Dolphins signed Isa Abdul-Quddus at Safety. To be honest I don't know alot about him and I will be doing some research and making some calls to get more info on him. I have heard he is a solid special teams player and can play both FS and SS which is good. The contract wasn't crazy and is modest which is also good. I will have more on Abdul-Quddus in the coming days when I get more information.
-I can confirm this afternoon that Alex Boone's representation did contact the Dolphins first, but the starting price was too much and the Dolphins bowed out gracefully and Boone did sign with Minnesota.
