Another Mock

Free Agency

We have about $51 million in cap space. However, we have to keep some money to sign rookies and as a buffer, so we have about $41 million to work with.

Re-signees

Smith- $5.5 mil

He has a small time agent who wont want to jeapordize his relationship with the Dolphins. Plus he has gone on record saying he wants to be here. We need him.

Hartline- $4 mil

He gives us a hometown discount to stay. Solid player with good chemistry with Tannehill.

Fasano- $2.5 mil

Underrated TE, very solid starter.

McDaniel- $2 mil

We need a backup DT

Spitler- $0.5 mil

Developmental player, RFA

Garner- $1 mil

Important backup for the Oline

Total $15.5 mil

Cuts

D. Patterson- $2.5 mil saved

We restructure his contract for a more favorable cap hit

R. Marshall- $3.5 mil saved

Didnt play much and got hurt. Wont be missed too badly.

R. Incognito- $4.5 mil saved

Doesnt move well, not a great fit for our Oline.

Total Savings $10.5 mil

Signees

G. Jennings WR - $8 mil

I think he is highly overrated, but he will make a decent slot type receiver in our new offense without a no 1 guy.

W. Beatty OT - $5 mil

Highly solid RT from the Giants, will allow us to move Martin to LT without causing huge problems.

A. Levitre OG - $7 mil

With Long gone, it is important that we improve our O-line, and he is the best OG on the market.

J. Byrd S- $8 mil

By far the best S on the market, will improve our secondary greatly.

M. Johnson DE- $8 mil

Gives us a strong pass rusher opposite Wake and allows us to kick Odrick inside to his natural position.

Total $36 Mil

Overall Cap Hit : $41 Mil

Draft

1. D. Milliner, CB

I am confident he will be available. Best CB in the draft and will give us a strong tandem with Smith.

2a. D. Thomas, OT/OG

We can kick him inside to RG to finish our new Oline.

2b. R. Woods, WR

Will never be a #1 WR because of his size, but doesnt need to be with Hartline and Jennings. Runs good routes and provides YAC, unlike Justin Hunter.

3a. B. Jenkins, DE

First round talent dropping due to injury, provides depth along the Dline, and will push Vernon. Eventually, one will be able to replace Wake.

3b. J. Franklin, RB

Will provide some RB depth after losing Bush and maybe even take over as the starter if he beats out Miller.

4. T. Matthieu, CB

A gamble, but well worth it at this spot to improve depth in the secondary.

5-7: Backup QB, backup OT, backup WR
