  • Stay, Go or Restructure- LB Koa Misi

    Stay, go or restructure- LB Koa Misi

    Stay, go or restructure: LB Koa Misi
    Experience: Six seasons
    2015 stats: 78 tackles
    2016 salary/cap charge: $4.3 million, $4.878 million cap
    Analysis: The Dolphins have a curious case with Misi. They need significant upgrades at linebacker and can save more than $4 million by cutting Misi. But the Dolphins won’t be able to get three new linebackers in the offseason, and Misi’s contract isn’t a bad value for a starter. Misi fought through injuries this past season and didn’t make many significant plays, as evident by his zero sacks and zero interceptions. Miami was ranked 28th against the run and all of its linebackers struggled consistently defending tight ends and slot receivers.

    When healthy, Misi was an average LB but missed 5 games in 2014 and I think 4 last year. In addition I thought his play dropped off last year. I believe it's time to move on. The LB market in very thin this year but, I still give someone else a chance. The $4M savings this year is not a very big deal but will help. Injured players have really hurt this team, from rookies to vets

    Just checked and we would also save almost $5M next year as well.

      Keep him and add a linebacker through the draft in the first 3 rounds. Drop him next year. Just a gut.
      Just frolic and live in the now like Dolphins and Man's best friend.

        He was still our best overall LB this past season. Jenkins was injured all season and fought thru knee issues, but only around 70%.

        Be nice if we could get more production from Hewitt and Vigil moving forward. Would also love to draft Vigil brother later in the draft. A bigger, meaner, faster version. We could have our own "Bruise Brothers"... ;-)

          An injury prone JAG. I thought Misi would continue to develop but he seems to have hit his ceiling. I would cut him.

            I go back to my thinking that we have a better chance to be a legit playoff team next year, as opposed to this year. I look to move players who I do not see as value for 2017 like Grimes, Wake, Albert, and Misi.

            Have to wait and see how things shake out for the moves to make dollars and sense, as well as the direction from the team but, what I would like to do.

              No reason to keep him, our LB players are by far the worse in the league....

                if he can't stay healthy for one season what makes anyone think he will in the future. he is a good backup that can come in and play once and a while ,but not every week every play!
                this year and last you had to have someone to step in for him ,so why not get someone who can avoid injury and you can get constancy by having the same guys in week after week!

                  This guy is ALWAYS hurt & pretty much just average in the few games a year he's able to bless us with (Has he had a season yet where he hasn't either been IR'd or missed significant time due to injury??) Give him the boot,, hell, be nice about it and give him a walking boot as a parting gift..then everyone benefits! WE COULD'VE HAD EARL THOMAS!!!!!

                    We desperately needed a FS (Still do, as a matter of fact) could've had Earl Thomas, and for some unfathomable reason decided to trade down instead..Ended up with Odrick and Misi (with the extra pick) Once again, it's that quantity over quality bullshit...

                    Yeah, but I guess after drafting Vontae Davis, Sean Smith, and Chris Clemons in the 09 draft, the decision to focus on other parts of the defense. We still took Reshad Jones in that same 2010 draft...

                    Agree tho... I'd rather go BPA and be done with it...

                  Good back up LB for a year or two. Price is acceptable.

                    Bye Felicia.
                    While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

                      I would release Misi. That $4 million can go towards signing a free agent LB who is better. We also have to see if Jordan can play the SAM LB position. I would think he would be ideally suited to play that position. Then I would draft a LB. Someone who comes to mind is Joshua Perry from OSU who should be versatile enough to play either ILB or OLB. I would also bring Shephard back for depth if he comes cheap.

                        Misi=Albert Just injured all the time

                          Decent depth at half the price. Otherwise, good luck.....
