incredible-hulk By Dr. Bruce Banner End of football season and not yet start of league year mean Hulk have some time to calm down and relax. Hulk no think about football too much and Hulk no get angry too much. Funny how that works out. But now this coming Tuesday the league starts and that means the start of free agency. This get Hulk starting to think about football. Hulk start to think what free agents might Dolphins sign and what free agents might Dolphins lose? As Hulk begins to think about the various scenarios Hulk start to get sweaty, his chest starts pounding, his head start hurting and Hulk start getting angry thinking about mistakes that team might make. Hulk think of many things that would make him angry. This is what would make Hulk angry in free agency: Signing Ndamukong Suh for crazy big money. It’s not that Hulk doesn’t like Suh, in fact Hulk have great respect for Suh and his style of play. However, Hulk sees to much money to be spent on one player on defense. Hulk see many other needs that may not get addressed if we sign Suh such as contract extension for Ryan Tannehill. Then there is fixing the offensive line and wide receiver. For the same money that we spend to sign Suh we could sign Mike Iupati and Randall Cobb. Hulk think that would make much bigger impact on team than 1 defensive tackle. We would solidify the interior of the offensive line which would mean Tannehill would have more time to throw and Miller would have more open lanes to run. At same time we could add Randall Cobb who is ideally for Dolphins offense. He has speed to get deep but thrives in the short to intermediate passing game. Nearly one half of his 1,200 yards were after the catch. Tannehill thrives in the short to intermediate game as well. If we sign Cobb, then we have 2 wide receivers who play very well in space and can line up in multiple positions including the boundary, the slot or the backfield and at R1P14 one of these 3 wide receivers are likely to be available: Amari Cooper, Kevin White or Devante Parker. All of whom would be excellent boundary receivers. We would fix OL and give Tannehill multiple weapons to work with but if we sign Suh then this is not possible as we will have no money to bring in veteran OG. We will be forced to draft and rely on rookie OL instead. There are other good options for interior OL in free agency other than Iupati. Vladimir Ducasse of the Vikings, Orlando Franklin of Broncos and Jah Reid of Ravens give other options at OG for Dolphins to get immediate help on interior OL. Another option is to sign Steve Wisnewski from Raiders at OC and keep Mike Pouncey at OG. Another thing that would make Hulk angry is if we sign Jared Odrick to big contract extension. Odrick play a lot but not make many tackles or sacks. Also Dolphin run defense really struggled with Odrick playing DT. There is talk of Odrick getting an $8 million dollar per year contract. Hulk no see that and Hulk be very angry if Phins pay Odrick that much. There are other good DT options available that would be cheaper. Dan Williams for instance is very good run stuffing DT and he be cheaper than Odrick. Terrence Knighton may not be cheaper but he is better than Odrick. Vince Woolfork is now on the open market, maybe he like to come back to Miami for a short term contract and take up space in middle of field. Nick Fairley, Suh’s team mate is also free agent and is better than Odrick. There are too many good options at DT to invest that much money in Odrick. Hulk also hear people talk about signing a veteran running back like Frank Gore. This also would make Hulk angry. Again Hulk like Frank Gore but Hulk no not to sign a running back on the wrong side of 30. Hulk thinks Phins have their running back with Lamar Miller. What Phins need is a quality back up running back/short yardage specialist. There are good options in draft including a Hulk favorite in Tyler Varga. Hulk would see no reason to spend cap dollars on a veteran running back when it is a good year for running backs in the draft. Hulk would also be very angry if we no address the secondary in free agency. Right now Phins have 2 quality defensive backs on roster in Grimes and Reshad Jones and there is talk of cutting Jones to make cap space for Suh. Hulk getting angry just thinking about that. Jamar Taylor flashed talent in limit playing time last year. He may or may not be ready to be a full time CB. Louis Delmas was the starting S but he get injured and is now a free agent. We need at least 1 safety and one corner back. The market not great but there are some decent options that should not cost much. One option at CB is Darius Butler. He has proven to be a viable nickel back the last several years in Indianapolis and would not break the cap budget. Byron Maxwell be available at CB but he more expensive and Hulk no think he would be as good away from rest of pro bowl secondary in Seattle. At safety Hulk like Tyvon Branch from Oakland Raiders. I know Hulk like his Uconn guys but Branch has been a quality player who goes under the radar on bad team. Branch has speed to play center field and again not likely to break cap budget. Also Hulk like Antrell Rolle who is also a free agent. He is a proven ball hawk with 9 interceptions over last 2 years. Plus he is known to be a hard worker and good club house influence. Tom Coughlin called him the hardest working player he has ever seen. However he is likely to cost more. Finally, Hulk would be very angry if TE Charles Clay is lost to free agency, especially to Buffalo Bills as it was reported that coach Rex wanted to sign Clay. The imposition of the transition tag now makes it less likely we lose Clay as with transition tag Phins get right to match any offer. However, reports are that Bills still willing to make big offer to Clay. If we lose Clay there are not many good options in either the draft or free agency. The TE class in the draft is one of the worst in recent years. Most of the 40 times of the TEs in this draft make Arthur Lynch look fast. The free agency class is headed by Julius Thomas but he would be expensive and he will also be playing without Peyton Manning, DeMaryius Thomas and Wes Welker. Hulk not sure he worth signing for the kind of money he will demand. Jermaine Gresham is a quality TE but probably not better, or as versatile as Charles Clay. Jordan Cameron on Cleveland is available but again Hulk thinks Charles Clay fits Fins offense better. So Hulk thinks it is important to re-sign Charles Clay or else Hulk be very angry and no one wants that. content

    Maybe we can wrap Cameron’s head in bubble wrap.

    What we’re doing is trying to clear out some overpaid players who have not lived up to it, at least not in the present time.

    Suh and some lesser moves in FA to provide competition, and then we draft. Land 2-3 impact players. We did it last year, do it again!

    Clint Bolling is still out that right GDP?

    What’s his story

  6. The Flying Pig says:

  7. getterdone says:

    As I look at Cameron I see Lynch hopefully sans the multiple concussions.
    Both are near same size & weight.
    Cameron 4th rd pick…Lynch 5th.
    Cameron caught 6 passes as a rookie, didn’t really have a big year until year 3.
    Lynch missed rookie year with back trouble. Hope he earns some playing time in year 2.

  8. getterdone says:

    Boling hasn’t signed yet, but a few teams looming at him
    He’s an experienced starting 25yo LG, did well in Cincy. Built for the ZBS.

  9. The Flying Pig says:

    I bet we r-sign Delmas

  10. getterdone says:

    Bengals re-signed LG Clint Boling.
    Rotoworld’s No. 3 free-agent guard, Boling had been drawing interest from the Vikings and Jets. He’s started 44 games for Cincinnati over the past three years, rebounding nicely from a torn ACL last season. Boling is an above-average run blocker who holds his own in the passing game. His return is good news for Hue Jackson’s offense. Mar 10 – 8:29 PM

  11. steveccnv says:

    Wyoming, rebuilding is when you replace above average players with lesser or unproven players, retooling is what we’re doing. Some guys like Ellerbe and Wheeler didn’t work out, their replacements can’t be worse.

  12. getterdone says:

    Agreed on Gresham.

    Yahoo’s Charles Robinson reports the Browns are interested in free agent Jermaine Gresham.
    That’s if the Raiders don’t get a deal done first. Gresham would be a steep downgrade on Jordan Cameron, albeit one who is on the field more often. We’re not sure what it means that two of the league’s worst franchises are pursuing a player who never panned out in Cincinnati.

    I don’t get the knock on him, he scored 5 TD’s last year. In fact he’s averaged about 54 catches & 5 TD’s for Cincy over 5 years.

  13. getterdone says:

    I’d take a look at OG Justin Blalock or Brian De La Puenta next.

  14. Tim Knight says:

    This may be the offense if they’re all ready to go. It’s kind of incomplete but I put a lot of stock into chemistry.

    LT Albert
    LG Thomas
    C Pouncey
    RG Turner
    RT James
    TE Sims

    QB Tannehill
    RB Miller

    WR Wallace
    WR Landry
    WR Rookie (early pick)

    • steveccnv says:

      Matthews or first round pick at WR, that’s a downgrade to last yrs O, unless Tannehill continues to improve.

      • getterdone says:

        It’s essentially the same O, so how you figure?
        Do you think Hartline or Gibson would produce that much better than Matthews or a 1st round big WR?

        Do you think Shelley or Colledge not playing OG is a downgrade? How bout Satele?

      • getterdone says:

        Matthews had 2 TD’s on a mere 12 rec.
        Time to play the man. I like the way he seems to get open and the way he contests the ball in the air. He won’t go down as easily as Hartline either.

  16. The Flying Pig says:

    Night humans

    Suh well

  17. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, if we land one of the top WRs I don’t compare them to Matthews at all. Big upgrade there. Chemistry and development is a big factor here in other phases.

    The signing of Suh means the defense takes a step up, not gets worse. LOL

    • getterdone says:

      He just meant the Offense.
      But Suh can help the offense by proxy of getting them back on the field more often, with good field position, etc.

  18. Tim Knight says:

    I’m out too. Goodnight!
