The Wedge Scouting Report: Mackensie Alexander, CB

Wedge here for Toots SuperGlue!

Ever had one of those days?

Nothing can withstand the gravitational forces you pass through.

Everything comes to pieces!

Well that’s when you need your Toots SuperGlue!

TOOTSGLUEAD

TOOTS is the Glue you can rely on like superstar cornerback Mackensie Alexander.

Just apply a little bit of Toots Superglue to you broken Photon Belt or your best Wide Receiver and like Magic you are back in space again or pitching a shutout on the football field.

Toots and Alexander are airtight and won’t let anything come between them and the receiver, including bombs!

MackensieAlexander5

Alexander was one of the most highly ranked high school prospects coming out of high school.  He was talented then, he is talented now.

Toots won Space Ship Saver of the year last millennium.  And it still saves Space Ships!

Some think Alexander will be the first cornerback taken in the draft!  Some also think Toots will glue a moon to a planet!

Before the combine Alexander declared to the NFL “I am the best cornerback in the draft”…cocky, you bet!  True….maybe!

Cornerbacks need to be confident, and Mackensie certainly is.

And I am confident Toots will permanently glue anything it touches!

NCAA FOOTBALL: SEP 12 Appalachian State at Clemson

Guess how many interceptions Alexander had at Clemson…

The answer is ZERO.  Guess why?

Yep, you guessed it, no one dared to throw the ball near him.

Like Toots Superglue which never breaks down.  Toots is permanent and not safe for your kids to play with.

Alexander is true shutdown defensive back.  And Toots will kill your pets if they eat it!

MackensieAlexander4

Alexander is yet another prospect with Florida roots, hailing from Immokalee Florida.

I don’t know where that is but its probably full of football fields.

Toots, on the other hands, is harnessed out of the semen of dead lifeforms!

At the combine Alexander didn’t run the 40 but or really any drills at all except the bench where he benched 225 pounds 11 times.

At the Saturn New Products Fair, Toots glued an alien’s tentacles to his own pancreas 11 times!

FBC: Russell Atheletic Bowl: Clemson vs. Oklahoma

 

Let’s face it, if you are an NFL Team you need a Mackenzie Alexander on your roster.

And if you are an intergalactic agent, you need Toots SuperGlue in your spaceship!

Get your Toots SuperGlue now…look for the sexy alien on the label.

StickTootsGlue

Oh…and one more thing now you can get new MAX Toots SuperGlue.

Speaking of which…if Mackensie Alexander was an Alien Weapon of Destruction, he would be a bottle of MAX Toots SuperGlue!

  1. getterdone says:

    According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have “inquired” about free agent WR Andre Holmes.
    He’s 27 6’4 210 with 4 TD’s the past 2 seasons & a nice 14.6 avg per catch.

  2. son of a son of a shula says:

    I’m not braggin’ but I’ve been told I have a Bush-rod too, lol

  3. Tim Knight says:

    Son, any intel on CB Josh Robinson MIN who was from UCF? He’s visiting with us.

  4. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m getting the sense that a lot of fans are happier about what the Dolphins are doing then they initially were

    With the Williams signing and the trade it looked like the Dolphins were Best Buy shoppers on Black Friday

    And Willaims probably upset some people bc he is a big name and he is rumored to have quit on his team last season

    But I love that player

    After a couple of days you can see they are spending wisely though

    People will be upset about loosing Miller, OV, Matthews and Shelby
    But the only one that really bothers me in that bunch is Miller
    And I understand the logic to not wanting to pay a RB too much

    • getterdone says:

      Let’s hope CJ Anderson sticks. That will certainly soften the blow of losing Millertime.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Yeah
        But I’m looking at RBs
        Maybe in the 3rd round even

        Jordan Howard
        Alex Collins
        Devontae Booker

        Wedge might have to start featuring some RBs

    • Tim Knight says:

      Agreed. I’ve already moved on from those players, they’re not Dolphins anymore so I wish them well but they can also fuck off! LOL

  5. The Flying Pig says:

    Now that we have a lot of cap room

    Where do we spend it?
    Can we give some of that room back to Suh (restructuring again) and help avoid a higher cap hit in 2017 or 2018?

  6. The Flying Pig says:

    The patriots are going to sign Chris Hogan (7-11)

    That was predictable….

    • getterdone says:

      That’s a joke or parody right? What insane parent would read like that to a child, well except for FFR. 😉

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        I doubt she’s reading it for children, but whoever it’s for she’s cute doing it.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      She’s my favorite

      I get excited to watch capital one commercials

      She’s not a young 20 something either
      Maybe this pork has a chance with her😊

  7. son of a son of a shula says:

    Josh Robinson is fast as GD said. He was a hell of a punt returner at UCF too. He also had a great bowl game going up against AJ Green and Georgia and got the best of him and UCF won (2012 Liberty bowl).
    I’m not too familiar with how he’s done in the league but getting FA attention means he must be doing something right. Probably a depth player moreso than a starter.

  8. Rockphin says:

    uwantwat says:
    March 11, 2016 at 7:42 am

    G’day to JS and Rock I hope you are both well.

    G’night Uwantwat! LOL know you have turned in already but I wanted to put it out there in response. I hope you are doing well too!

  9. Rockphin says:

    Joey Bosa’s dad is former Dolphins 1st rounder John Bosa. Uncle is former Dolphins 1st rounder Eric Kumerow.

    OH MY! Please pass on him!!!!

  10. Mike E. says:

    Thanks Sonny!

    It was me who was asking for your input on Josh Robinson, Tim was kind enough to reopen the case. lol

  11. dbolt48 says:

    Are we still prohibited from posting 🐒💩??? Thanks for the clarification😁

  12. getterdone says:

    The Jaguars have discussed moving SS Johnathan Cyprien to linebacker.
    With the addition of FS Tashaun Gipson to shore up the back end of the defense, the Jaguars are playing around with the idea of getting Cyprien even closer to the line of scrimmage. Even when he entered the NFL, Cyprien was viewed as a box safety because of his severe deficiencies in coverage. Teams saw what the Rams did with Mark Barron, turning him from safety into a weak-side linebacker, and Barron just cashed in with a five-year, $45 million deal on Wednesday.
    _________________________
    Welcome to defenses trying to adjust to today’s pass heavy NFL.
    Maybe this is where a guy like Gary Shamiel can earn his way into some defensive snaps. He’s our 2nd year safety 6′ 217.

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    Happy Friday

    🍻

  14. Mike E. says:

    Rock

    Glad you’re on. Gotta ask you . . . Do you feel like the Midkemia series is a bit geared towards kids? I’m enjoying it, but I feel it’s not nearly as mature as GOT

  15. Ken says:

    Pretty much agree with Piggy’s 10:44 a.m. post. I initially did not like the trade but overall signings have not been bad and pretty conservative in general. I think our biggest mistake was letting Miller go and going after C.J. Anderson in his place for not much difference in money. That is a significant downgrade in talent imo. I like the Williams signing, the Bushrod signing and the Abdul signing.

  16. dbolt48 says:

    I got ya pig…no 🐒💩, but a dolphin butt fucking or getting butt fucked by a 🏈 is good👍 The search is on!

  17. son of a son of a shula says:

    I’m really interested in whether Kiko can have a positive impact on D. Jordan and actually help him become a productive player for us. If so that’s like getting 3 players for those 5 spots.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It would be wild if Jordan got his shit together and helped us at DE. We could use him. I’m not going to rely on him, but it would be cool.

  18. Mike E. says:

    Son

    The way I see it with DJFF, if Philbin couldn’t reach him, no one can. lol

  19. getterdone says:

    Ken, downgrade? CJ Anderson is a very big part of why Jughead rides off into the sunset with a 2nd Ring to match his Goober brother.

    • getterdone says:

      ….and you say it’s not much difference in money???
      We offered Anderson more than $2M less per year.

    • Ken says:

      Serious downgrade in talent imo. Miller is head and shoulders a superior back to Anderson. Miller is more explosive, he really developed as a receiver and Miller was also very good in pass protection. Anderson was the defacto starter for Broncos last year and essentially lost the job and became a rotational player. Once he did that his productivity increased. But first half of the season he did nothing last year.

      • Tim Knight says:

        He had conditioning issues. I agree he’s not as explosive as Miller but his production is very similar because neither back has ever had a heavy workload.

      • getterdone says:

        He started slow off with an injury. He’s only played significant snaps for 2 yrs in the NFL. He’s still ascending as well.

  20. Ken says:

    Going to play some hoops. BBL. Peace.

  21. getterdone says:

    Counting on Dion FF is like Browns fans hoping Josh Gordon gets his crap together, wish in one hand and…….

  22. Tim Knight says:

    Miller didn’t accept our offer and left.

  23. getterdone says:

    I remember banging the drum for this guy a year ago, then MF13 got behind it too. If he stays sober, he can be a very good MLB.
    ____________________________

    The San Francisco Chronicle’s Vic Tafur reports the Raiders are interested in free agent ILB Erin Henderson.
    The Jets also want to re-sign Henderson. Henderson was out of the league in 2014 but rejuvenated his career with the Jets this past year, grading out as PFF’s No. 14 inside linebacker despite playing just 232 snaps. He was top-nine against the run after displacing Demario Davis in sub-packages the final month-plus of the season. He’d likely play the MIKE spot in Oakland.

  24. Mike E. says:

    I think it’s possible Dion FF could turn it around. Some players finally see the light, and get their shit together. I wouldn’t bet on it, but he could be very good for us if he does.

  25. dbolt48 says:

    So I guess during a radio interview Tannenbaum said the current plan for our LB core as it stands is Jenkins & Misi starting OLBs and Alonso is our MLB.

  26. dbolt48 says:

    @FinsInsider: Tannenbaum said the process is just beginning – there will be a lot more trades, a lot more cuts and a lot more things happening.

  27. dbolt48 says:

    @OmarsMistakes: Seems like Omar is keeping up at what he does best, making shit up when he has zero factual evidence to back him up. https://t.co/WI04ppNRTA

  28. The Flying Pig says:

    I can think of a few difference makers to insert into that LB unit

  29. The Flying Pig says:

    Tim

    Lee is a Sophmore
    but yeah He’s need polishing

    but he attacks!
    Sometimes a little wrecklessly
    but we can use a LB who attack the LOS

  30. Tim Knight says:

    LOL @ Piggy on Misi getting injured in week one.

    In all seriousness I do think we will draft a LB by day two and maybe one late and a couple as UDFAs. Then let them all compete and it will work itself out.

  31. sb7mvp says:

    Bring on the LBs in 2016. The more the merrier. Hopefully Joseph can get this unit playing up to potential and Alonso can return to form. We’d have a pretty solid defense up the middle with Suh, Alonso, and Jones.

  32. Mike E. says:

    I’m very hesitant to rely on Alonso, I hope we draft a MLB, and then have the flexibility to move people around.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Why, because he had that one knee injury? The one this year was a sprain and not serious. The guy is an excellent LB.

      • Mike E. says:

        It still compromises his knee, even if he didn’t have a second surgery, a partial tear is still a tear. It’s weakened, and it can tear all the way, more easily than a healthy ligament.

    • getterdone says:

      Mike, it’s not still a partial tear. It’s healed, he’s played on it several games since.

  33. getterdone says:

    Browns waived QB Johnny Manziel.
    Predictably, the Browns couldn’t find anyone to give them anything for their off-field embarrassment. Manziel will now pass through waivers and likely go unclaimed. He’ll probably have to sit on his hands until his off-field matters get resolved, as Manziel has an ongoing domestic case in Texas. To this point in his career, Manziel has been more worried about getting hammered drunk than being good at football. He allegedly showed up drunk to the facility back in Week 16.

  34. Mike E. says:

    Piggy

    Really – Relying on Alonso and Misi to make it through an entire season is comical. Keep drafting LB’s!!!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Alonso has only been in the league 3 years. People act like he’s been in the league 7 years and misses 6 games every year. He’s our MLB.

      • Mike E. says:

        Not really a good argument Tim. At least if he was in the league 6 years, and played 3 full years, you’d have that. He’s missed 21 out of 38 games. That’s a bunch. He’s missed more than he’s played.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        we just need to draft LBs

        I’m not pooping on the moves

        but we need young LBs
        you are giving these guys too much credit for being able to make it through the season

        in the end, these sort of things have hurt us in the past

        maybe we draft guys that don’t play in 2016
        but so be it

        we can take the BPA when we pick
        or even trade down
        we can afford to develop talent bc we have guys with experience

        but we can’t get caught with our pants down if they repeat what has happened last few years

    • getterdone says:

      Mike, of course they’ll draft a LB or two. But first you set the table before you start dishing food onto a plate.

  35. Mike E. says:

    Tim – Gotta run – I’ll check your response later.

  36. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, when you blow your knee training in the offseason you’re going to miss 16 games. So saying what you’re saying is misleading. He’s played in 27 games and missed 21 so that’s not missing more than he’s played. LOL

    Von Miller blew his knee a few years ago and missed the season, how’s he doing?

  37. getterdone says:

    No matter who you draft or sign in FA. They can get hurt, even if they never have before. It’s called a contact sport for a reason. That’s football.

  38. wyoming85 says:

  39. Tim Knight says:

    The only injuries you need to worry about are chronic ones that cannot heal. Alonso spraining the knee he had surgery on isn’t uncommon. He missed 5 weeks the first year off of the injury but finished strong. Not sure why we should worry about him. The same with Albert who played 14 games last year. They both should be good to go with no issues.

  40. finfanrob says:

    getterdone says:
    March 11, 2016 at 12:23 pm

    Browns waived QB Johnny Manziel.
    Predictably, the Browns couldn’t find anyone to give them anything for their off-field embarrassment.

    they should have contacted the fins. everyone knows they are push overs when it comes to negotiations. hell they probably could have gotten four or five draft picks from the fins

  41. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, I don’t think you have to worry about not adding more LBs. But you should also be excited that we found at worse some really solid depth and STs guys as UDFAs last year. Alonso is tackling machine at MLB who has great instincts. We should draft at least one LB to push both Misi and Jenkins. Who knows we may sign a LB in FA. He won’t be a top guy but more competition.

    • getterdone says:

      Like I said the other day. I look at Alonso & Maxwell as extra draft picks we got & we doubled down. We ARE going to draft another LB & CB. We don’t need WR’s, DT’s, TE’s, RB’s, or QB’s early this draft.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Agreed.

        Another thing about Alonso is that he didn’t injure his knee playing football. it was doing a drill in the offseason. So it’s not like he gets banged up all the time playing the game.

  42. wyoming85 says:

  43. getterdone says:

    Patriots signed DL Frank Kearse, formerly of the Redskins.
    He announced the signing on his Instagram page. Kearse logged just 76 snaps last year and probably won’t have much of a role if he makes the team.

  51. D says:

    Ken, Piggy in particular as moderators of this sit and men of the law may i present a case for formal ruling in the matters of inappropriate posting.

    First as a formal declaration of my guilt with regard to events that occurred on the 10th of March, 2016, i did participate in a set of juvenile antics that were deemed by at least one of the ruling members to be “out of line”. I fully admit to having posted at approximately 4:36 pm EST as somewhat graphic youtube clip of a Gorilla eating his own excrement and then sharing it with another, smaller Gorilla. I also admit prior to post it, i knew this was not subject the blog was specifically created to contain, i understood the graphic nature of it having been tricked into viewing it previously, and i recognized the level of immaturity i was exposing having posted that link. I do apologize for such action but i would like to bring argument against the general reprimand that ensured and call for a more formal declaration of the rules regarding said postings.

    Part 1: Precidence, and lack thereof.

    It is true that previous action did exist that have brought previous rulings regarding content of sexual or exploitative nature. I will therefore submit that the post of a Gorilla eating his own excrement does not indeed qualify as either, unless by suggestion of your own, there are people attending this site that could qualify either as such. This of course would not be relevant to this case, as no proof for such an individual exiting among this blogs users has ever been made aware, and its only been somewhat suggest/proven that FFR qualifies. Therefore, my actions, under the general precedence set, was not in violation.

    Part 2: Disclaimer

    While many times there is a general lack of disclaimer for such posts and many times users are caught off guard by the content contained in posting, with regards to my posting, this does not apply. I refer therefore to the original posting where strategically placed above the YouTube video was, and i quote: “Monkey see….monkey eat do do”. This should qualify as not only a warning, but an exact description of what a user might find if they decide to venture forward with watching this video. I accept no responsibility therefore for anyone who did so venture, and become offended by the contents within. I submit therefore there is legal precedence that the disclaimer provided was sufficient to avoid any punishment.

    Part 3: Temporary insanity.
    I will also plead temporary insanity with regards to the events that led me to post that link. I submit as evidence this:

    Notice the evidence that if you are hungry and have not eaten a snickers, crazy things happen. On the day in question, i was indeed hungry, having missed lunch and it was 3:36pm CST. I also had not had a snickers bar. Citing the link above, and the repeated examples that snickers provides, i say this is proof that i was indeed temporarily “not myself” and therefore i was not in control of my actions.

    I would like to close with a petition that rules regarding the posting of inappropriate material be made aware to all users of this blog, defining not only what constitutes inappropriate (since most of us seem to not have that line) and what form of posting is acceptable. YouTube videos for example have to initiated to play then, where as an animated gif and some of the types of links are not. Will a simple disclaimer in that situation be adequate or should the post of such links be forbidden as a whole. Finally a ruling as to what type of woman is appropriate to post should be determined as it seem to carry a lot more offense posting a woman who looks like this:

    versus one like this:

    keeping in mind discrimination based upon beauty is indeed frowned upon.

    Thank you to the governing body for continued dedication to preservation of content and quality of this blog, and to the jury of my peers for their contributions of their own that hopefully make my arguments hold.

  52. finfanrob says:

    lol @ piggy.

    i really was just asking above, i wasnt trying to be a smart ass. i thought maybe you heard something.

    but you like the rest of the ladies here have every right to change your mind.

      They may kick Albert inside, Albert has played OG and he’d be less likely to get rolled up on as an OG. You would think though they would be less likely to move him, but i think its possible.

  58. getterdone says:

    NFL Media’s Rand Getlin reported Friday that the Buccaneers have signed the former Dolphins cornerback to a two-year, $16.5 million deal, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. I bet his guaranteed money is low so they can cut him after 1 yr once she tells the Bucs fans they are haters.
    The good news is they have a black QB….LMAO 😉

    they may have a black qb but the equivalent on the radio here is a white sob. she is going to just love him.

    What more could he ask for? A black QB and Miko too!

    yeah, but the only college team he is allowed to write about is the gators. and it has to be all roses and ice cream

  61. D says:

    I think its possible that they kick Albert inside. He’s the OT with t he most experience at OG and i think OG might actually be safer for him injury wise.

  62. D says:

    “the Bucs are a REAL organization, being ran PROPERLY, unlike that dumpster fire in the AFC East we just left! they wouldnt DARE ask me to delete my twitter! i deleted my twitter bc i didn’t want the twitter gangsters and thumb thugs to have anyone to @ when they found out the Bucs (and multiple other teams) made them all look STUPID! who doesnt want a pro bowl corner thats doing [expletive; rhymes with hit]. NO OTHER CORNER IN THE LEAGUE CAN DO! men lie! women lie! stats lie! the media lies! u know whats undefeated? FILM!!! we are HAPPY and i dont feel like sharing it with anyone just yet. ill be back very soon and ill be the same supportive, dedicated, truthful bitch i was before i left!”

    Zierlein was curious about projecting Apple’s ceiling, which required his measurements and his athletic testing numbers. Apple aced all those tests, with an ideal 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame and a 40-yard dash of 4.40 seconds (along with a smoking 10-yard split of 1.47 seconds).

  64. naplesfan2010 says:

    Shoot we don’t even need the draft anymore … we’ve solved all our needs in FA this year.

  65. getterdone says:

    Patriots signed WR Chris Hogan to a three-year, $12 million contract.
    The Bills declined their right of first refusal on the 27-year-old slot receiver. Since Hogan is a former undrafted free agent tendered at the original-round level, the Bills receive no compensation for his departure.

  66. finfanrob says:

    the Bucs are a REAL organization, being ran PROPERLY, unlike that dumpster fire in the AFC East we just left!

    lmfao. that has to be one of the funniest lines ever. it was funny and just saved me from reading the rest of the comment.

    Miko is a piece of trash. I lost respect for Grimes a while back when he was asked about her actions and he said something to the effect of “It doesn’t have anything to do with me”. Ummmm, yeah it does Brent. She’s your wife and what she does is a reflection on you.

      Yeah that shit-tard threw anyone under the bus when Brent sucked this year. The London game it was Ross’s fault because the game was in London all the other games it was the safeties fault or it wasn’t Brent’s guy in coverage even though he was on him the entire play until he got beat. By the the end of the year you could tell Reshad Jones was fed up with it by his subtle tweets at the end of the year.

    Now that we have a lot of cap room

    Where do we spend it?
    Can we give some of that room back to Suh (restructuring again) and help avoid a higher cap hit in 2017 or 2018?
    ——————————————–
    It always amazes me when I see a post like this. What do people not understand about rollover money? Do they not know it exists?

  73. steveccnv says:

    I see Hogie signed with the cheats. The Bills didn’t resign him, because he drops too many passes.

  74. getterdone says:

    Jaguars signed CB Prince Amukamara, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.
    The 27-year-old (in June) 2011 first-rounder will slide in opposite Davon House. It’s surprising Amukamara had to settle for a one-year deal, but he has a lengthy injury history, and hasn’t always quite lived up to his first-round pedigree.

    Meh, they can have him. When is healthy enough to be on the field he got ROASTED by Landry. Giants D was worse than our by far last season.

  78. steveccnv says:

    Not sure what Philly was doing last yr with Alonso and Maxwell, but that’s what you get on D with a college offensive coach as your head coach. Whenever a player is rumored to be going to the Cheats all we here is how great they’re going to be in that system, that’s because Billicheat gets it. He knows how to use players in his system. It seems the teams that pay all the money to get FAs don’t understand this simple principal. Take Ireland, all he did was signed guys, didn’t care what it cost or if they fit.

    Rexie wow, WTF was he thinking last yr putting Mario at LB?

  79. steveccnv says:

    Maxwell’s contract was slightly redone:
    Maxwell, who was set to receive $18.5 million in base salary over the next two seasons ($11.5 million guaranteed), will now earn just $17 million in salary, but $13.5 million guaranteed, according to sources.

    His base salary will be $8.5 for each of the next two seasons, instead of $8.5 million in 2016 and $10 million in 2017.

    Alonso’s contract was also redone, I believe for 2 yrs $5M.

    Wasn’t Bushrod released by the Bears because he failed his physical?

  83. Brian in NY says:

    Steve,
    Everyone gets the rollover money- it’s not really that complicated. Do YOU understand that if we spend it all that we have no money to rollover?

    For the record, I think 7-11 is going to be very effective in NE’s offense. 50-60 receptions.

    • steveccnv says:

      What an idiot:
      The Dolphins are banking on a third-, fourth- and seventh-round pick being awarded to them next year. Why?

      Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive

      The compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through sixth rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Well it’s probably projected on our loss/gain in FA this year will be a heavy loss difference. We lost OV, Miller, Shelby and Matthews to pretty big money. Our only gains would be Abdul-Quddus, Young, Bushrod and Anderson at the moment. Maxwell, Alonso and Williams don’t count because they weren’t UFAs.

        we will be well positioned nect yr to win the off season championship

  98. The Flying Pig says:

    Steve

    Why do you want to roll over cap savings when you can reduce a player’s cap hit in 2017 now?

    Remember, we restructured Suh’s contract to recue his 2016 cap number
    but why do that if you aren’t spending the $?

    We don’t gain more cap room with a rollover of what we don’t spend?

    instead if increasing a players cap hit for 2017 or beyond, why not take the hit now when you have cap room?

    Does the logic make more sense now?

    • Tim Knight says:

      I don’t think we’re done. Not big names, but pieces.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        yeah but those will only cost so much

        it looks clear that we don’t need all the cap space we created by restructuring Suh

        My suggestion was to give extra $, whatever’s left when we are done, back to Suh by restructuring again (if that is possible)

        the idea is we can lower his cap hit in the years to come when we have $ to spend now

        The rollover $ doesn’t really create more cap space if you had to restructure a players contract to create more space – b/c the same space will be spent

    • steveccnv says:

      You rollover what isn’t used, if you reduce the 2017 cap hit now you’re done, you can’t use that money this yr. Tannebaum says there’s still more trades and signing to be made.

      How do you know they aren’t going to spend the money?

      No, it gives you flexibility.

      See above.

      No, you’re being ridiculous.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Its a lot of $
        and the free agents available get cheaper and cheaper
        Its looking like there will be money that isn’t used IMO
        But I concede we don’t know that

        If you spend it – that’s fine

        but if you don’t

        What’s the benefit of restructuring a players contract to increase his cap hit in 2017 or 2018 so you can roll over $ and increase the cap room in those years?

        You didn’t create cap space by increasing a players cap hit next year, by increasing the cap room with rollover money – those things offset one another (at best) they don’t create more cap space.

        I’m not getting your response at all

        You are talking about having more $ to spend (via rollover) tomorrow but you have more debt (via restricting to create cap space)

        I’m suggesting that you didn’t need that cap space – so get rid of the future debt now. I’m not seeing that as ridiculous

      • steveccnv says:

        By restructuring Suh it gives us more cap space THIS YEAR, of course it doesn’t create extra gross salary cap space. So you do the restructure, have an extra $16M in 2016 cap space to field a competitive team, what you don’t use you rollover. You can’t have zero cap space, then every time you want to sign an FA restructure someone. You’re talking about the current $22M like our team is set and no more deals will be made.

    Piggy, I wouldn’t worry much about the cap. Tannenbaum’s main strength is as an administrator and accountant, he’s also a capologist. He and Aponte know what they’re doing with numbers.

    • steveccnv says:

      And might be the best in the league at it, that’s why we can spend yr after yr. The local ESPN Radio guys were giving it to GBs GM for not doing enough in FA, saying you better put a good team on the field while Rogers is still at the top of his game.

      We get blasted for signing Suh to a big contract, yet the Giants are the greatest for signing OV for a similar contract, and isn’t anywhere near the best at his position. At least Suh is as good as there is at his position.

      • Tim Knight says:

        A lot of fans don’t like Ross and Tannenbaum. It wasn’t long ago that Aponte was a power hungry bitch. LOL

  107. D says:

    BTW, after FA settles out a lot of cuts happen so there is still a lot to go and we can only roll over so much of the cap, i think there is plenty of spending left.

    • D says:

      Id try to roll over as much as possible though so we have it for next year.

      • steveccnv says:

        We’re trying to field a team this yr to compete for the playoffs, if it means we need to spend another $10M to sure up some depth, then that’s what will be done, if possible.

  110. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, Tannenbaum was also an agent recently, he knows how this business works. He knows what the markets are and how to crunch it. Then Aponte digs in.

  111. The Flying Pig says:

    It was posed as a question about the unused money
    its not a criticism

    settle down guys – don’t get into defense mode

    the rollover $ has no effect on my suggestion

    think about it
    Okay – you create more cap space next year
    but you have unpaid salary to spend (bc of the restructering) that takes up that cap space

    The math doesn’t pan out that we created room

    They created more space in 2016
    I get the benefit of that – it was clear

    they may be heading to not spending that $ (it appears that way to me)

    So can they undo what they did ?
    now that is may not be necessary
    and in doing so lower a players cap hit in 2017

    The net gain to a rollover is zero – if you just pushed back a cap hit til 2017

    creating cap space has a benefit at the start of the free agency period
    the benefit is dying now – but maybe we use some of that $

    but if we don’t – why not just turn back the retracting we did?
    That is my question
    We are not gaining any cap room with a rollover

    I would think it would be more beneficial to lower a players cap hit
    than to create more cap room via rollover

    the sooner you get out of the consequences of a contract – the better

    • Tim Knight says:

      I’m not in defense mode. I’m just saying you don’t know enough about their plans. None of us do.

    • steveccnv says:

      It’s the same thing to rollover the money or as you say somehow undue what we did and reduce the 2017 cap. The only difference is they want to spend more money in 2016, so they restructured for the flexibility, if it isn’t used they’ll just put it back in the bank.

      Lets say you have a timeshare and you can use 3 weeks in 2016, by borrowing weeks from future yrs, either way you slice it you only get 3 weeks vacation from those 3 yrs, but by them allowing you to use all 3 weeks this yr it gives you more flexibility to do what you want.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Yeah
        I get it

        but flexibility has a lot more value when the big $ to spend is still on the market

        when the big $ is off the market
        then there is less value

        Basically we put off a debt until the future

        Its low risk
        but think about a worst case scenario
        What if Suh blows out his knee in 2016
        what if he retires

        part of the money not spent now – which would have gone to him, will effect the cap in 2017 and 2018 – even if he is out of football

        The Lions are taken a cap hit for Calvin Johnson in 2016

        I think its a brilliant contract
        don;t get me wrong
        and creating flexibility certainly has value

        but we are close to that point where there is nowhere to spend that $

        So why not reduce the salary cap in 17 and 18, rather than rollover money not spent

        Maybe its just me
        but I always want to get out from under a debt if possible
        instead of pushing it over

      Good player
      I don’t know what happened to his pro career

    • Tim Knight says:

      That guy keeps coming back to me and I know he has the red flags. It’s up to teams to determine if he’s over his nonsense. But he is a top talent. He’s a pure weak side edge rusher. Not big at 6-2 250 but he’s quick and has pass rush skills.

    • steveccnv says:

      Wow! I hope we sign him. A lot of us were high on drafting him a few yrs ago.

      But I don’t think we can, because Pig says we need to pay down our 2017 cap 😛

      • The Flying Pig says:

        😀

        Well we are not going to pay him all that money!

    Knee injury took time to bounce back from, but he was excellent when he played for Pitt. This year due to other guys injuries.

    Pig, it’s the same friggin thing, when you rollover the money you’re actually increasing the 2017 cap.

    Reminds me of a joke. A lady working at an ice cream store gets a customer, she welcomes him in and says our flavor of the day is peach, we also have our regular flavors vanilla and strawberry, but we’re all out of chocolate.

    The guy says I’ll have 2 scoops of chocolate. She says, I’m sorry we’re all out of chocolate.

    The guy again says, I’ll have 2 scoops of chocolate. She says, sir I’m sorry we’re all out of chocolate today, may I suggest our special peach?

    The guy again says I’ll have 2 scoops of chocolate. She says, spell the van in vanilla, he says V-A-N, then she says spell the straw in strawberry, he says S-T-R-A-W, then she says spell the fuck in chocolate, he says there’s no fuck in chocolate and she says that’s what I’ve been trying to tell you there’s no fuckin’ chocolate today.

  121. getterdone says:

    Free agent ILB Sean Spence is visiting the Dolphins on Friday night.
    The Dolphins are his only known visit. Spence saw 273 snaps last season while backing up Ryan Shazier at left inside linebacker. He’d give the Dolphins some depth behind starters Kiko Alonso, Koa Misi and Jelani Jenkins. Spence grew up in Miami and played his college ball at the U.

    • Tim Knight says:

      He’d be significant depth and competition at LB. It also shows you we’re serious about LB. I believe in a 4-3 you need 6 game day LBs, 4-5 in the rotation and 2-3 of them on STs. Guys get hurt and need breathers. You want to have capable depth. So the more talent we bring in to compete the better.

  122. The Flying Pig says:

    Well forget it (cap discussion)
