New, comments

The NCAA Tournament is down to the Final Four. Why don't we do a bracket of our own?

We continue our Phinsider bracket of the best free agent signing in Miami Dolphins history today with the second round. We have taken the top free agent signings in team history, since the start of the NFL's true free agency in 1993, and formed our own NCAA tournament style bracket. As with the NCAA tournament, we started with the first round featuring (don't call them) "play-in" games, and now are ready to move on to the full bracket.

Today will be busy as we introduce several match-ups on which you can vote. Here is the full bracket:

Free Agent Bracket 2

Round 2 continues now with defensive tackle Randy Starks facing off against wide receiver Mark Ingram.

Starks joined the Dolphins in 2008, signing a five-year contract. In seven seasons with the team, Starks played both defensive end and defensive tackle. He played in 111 games for Miami with 96 starts, intercepted four passes, forced a fumble, recovered four fumbles, recorded 30.5 sacks, and made 253 tackles. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2010 and 2012. He was released this offseason in a salary cap move for the team.

The majority of Ingram's career was spent with the New York Giants, who drafted him in the first round of the 1987 Draft. in 1993, the first year of free agency in the NFL, Ingram signed with the Dolphins, spending two years with the club. In that time, he appeared in 31 games, starting 29 of them, with 88 receptions for 1,213 yards, and 12 touchdowns. Ingram's top highlight with Miami may be during Dan Marino's "Clock Play" where Marino faked a spike and threw a game winning touchdown pass to Ingram to beat the New York Jets.

Which player moves on to the quarterfinals of our bracket?
