Take this with a grain of salt, everyone. But WQAM's Orlando Alzugaray is reporting that the Dolphins and tackle Vernon Carey are getting close to reaching a new contract - keeping Carey in Miami and preventing him from testing the free agent waters.
But remember, this is just a radio report. And Alzugaray said that he's "heard" that the two sides are close. So that sounds very unofficial - so don't get too excited yet. The fact that I haven't seen this reported anywhere else also leads me to be wary of this report.
You can tune into Orlando's show on WQAM at their website.
**UPDATE 3:56 pm**: Orlando Alzugaray just closed his show by saying:
"There could be something happening very soon between the Dolphins and Carey."
