Rumor: Dolphins interested in CB Bryant McFadden

According to ProFootballTalk, the Dolphins are one of four teams who are in the running to sign former Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden.

Per PFT's "league source," McFadden is hoping to make a decision on his future soon.  The Steelers, Cardinals, and Eagles are reportedly the other three teams who are competing for McFadden's services.

It's surprising that McFadden - a former stand-out at McArthur High School in Hollywood, Florida who played his college ball at Florida State - has this long to find a new home.  At 6'0, 190, he has the measurables of a very good corner and, at 27 years of age, is just entering the prime of his career.

The Arizona Republic reports that the Cardinals are only looking to sign McFadden to a deal that would pay him an average of between $3 million and $4 million annually.  But I just don't see how that would be enough to get a deal done with Bryant.  After all, Domonique Foxworth got 4 year, $27 million deal from the Ravens and Jabari Greer got a 4 year, $23 million deal from the Saints.  McFadden is just as good as either of those two (if not better) and probably has more upside than both.

No other media outlet other than PFT is reporting that the Dolphins are interested, though.  So it'll be interesting to see if this is just a wild rumor of if there's some truth behind PFT's report that claims Miami is indeed in the running.
