Dolphins Free Agency Frenzy

Free Agency has begun and the news is coming fast and furious so let's break everything down as of 7pm

Ted Larsen
-The Dolphins have signed Free Agent Guard Ted Larsen to a 3 year deal. Financials haven't been disclosed yet. Larsen can play both guard and center and is expected to come in and fight for a chance to start at guard for Miami this season. He was a starter in Arizona for 2 years and spent last year in Chicago where he started 8 games and played in 15. Larsen has 65 starts in 7 years in the league on various teams.  The Dolphins aren't even close to being done at the guard position but this is a vet who can start right away and someone who can fill in for Pouncey should he go down.  I would think with this signing the chance of Nick Mangold signing with the Fins won't be happening, but you never know.

-Tight End Dion Sims signed with the Bears and Miami wasted no time in bringing back Anthony Fasano. Fasano was in Miami not that far back and was a quality player for the Fins. Fasano is a solid #2 TE and will be great in the run blocking game essentially filling the role Sims had. Fasano signed a 1 year deal worth $3 million with incentives if he hits benchmarks.

-Reshad Jones got his contract extension he has been begging for. A five year deal with $35 mill guaranteed. Jones is the highest paid safety in the NFL now and it is a good deal for Miami as Jones is their best player in the secondary.

-Lawrence Timmons will be visiting the Dolphins facility on Friday. Reports were it would happen today. The fact it's not until Friday makes me think Timmons is using Miami to get more money out of Pittsburgh. If Timmons signs with Pitt tonight or tomorrow morning before stepping foot in Miami don't be shocked people.

-The safety market dried up real fast via free agency. All of the "legit starters" are gone and nobody is left on the market but back-up's and guys with little to no experience. Miami is going to have to address their safety problem in the draft. Probably will have to double down and take 2 in this draft.

-Jabaal Sherad is at the Dolphins facility right now! He lives a few minutes away and drove there on his own to meet with the team. Miami may have him locked up tonight so don't be surprised if that news breaks.
