If Ross wants to bring fans to the stands he needs to stitch some big names on some Aqua and Orange jerseys. To do this Miami needs to be relentless in FA and bid on everything that looks tempting. Our basic need has obviously been QB. Hopefully with the Packer's OCas our head coach we can possibly sway Flynn, the only decent FA besides Brees, into Miami to start or at least to compete against Moore. I have a feeling Miami won't find their QB answers in FA but I'll take Flynn over Henne anytime.
Another area Miami needs to focus on is the safety position. There is a lot of talk about LaRonLandry and how Miami should go after him. However Landry is injury prone and missed fifteen games in two years! That's almost a whole season! We can't fill our cap room with injury prone players. What the dolphins need to do is acquire Courtland Finnegan. Ross needs to fly him down and show him a good time in SoBe. Finnegan would lock down out secondary and allow Smith to move to safety. Supposedly Finnegan already sold his house in Texas and is not afraid to walk away from the Titans organization.
On the O-line the Dolphins need to go after both Carl Nicks of the Saints and Ben Grubbs of the Ravens. I would choose Grubbs over Nicks, he is a fast guard that helped Ray Rice to have the season he had. Ross needs to throw money in both their directions and hope for a bite.These are the three players that I feel would be the best fit as well as the most plausible. If Manning becomes free and is healthy of course we should take him.Texans will not let Mario Williams out of their locker room and Avril will be on the top of Detroit's list this off season. But it think if we focus on Finnegan and his eagerness to leave Texas; welcome Flynn in with Philbin and attain either Nicks or Grubbs then the Dolphins would be sitting pretty next season. As for Soliai, let him go. The Fins can't afford to pay a nose tackle big bucks who had ZERO sacks and only a few tackles for loss. I say build the rest in the Draft. If we get Grubbs or Nicks we could use our first round pick on Courtney Upshaw or a young DT. Let me know what you think the Dolphins should do this FA.
