  • Arian Foster to Visit

    Armando Salguero
    Armando Salguero – ‏@ArmandoSalguero

    I am told the Arian Foster visit is an exploratory mission. Check him physically. Get to know. Don't be surprised if no contract offer.

      I don't think a contract at this time. Will his signing affect the comp picks? I do hope we grab him if he is able to go. I would take a chance.

        Kick the tires, see if he's healthy, and wait... he's not getting a ton of attention from other teams right now.

      I am so tired of reading how DESPERATE the Miami Dolphins are with every move they make. If any other team were to bring Foster in for a look it would be a great move. Since it's the Dolphins, they are DESPERATE.

        Of course... the pats never make a bad move. I think most of the pundits are down on us cause they predicted we were a playoff team last off-season once we signed Suh. Now they are dogging us non-stop. The BS with Miko and her mouthpiece, Omar, doesn't help.

        I agree. I am so tired of living in the past. It's awesome that the Dolphins are the only team to do it but I would love to have some RECENT things to brag about.

      I won't be surprised if a contract is offered. I will be surprised if he signs a contract with the Dolphins..

        Foster had the same injury as Wake. Probably more devastating for a RB to have an Achilles injury.

        He would probably be cheap coming off the injury, but that's if he can even pass the physical.

          I have absolutely no feelings with this subject because I don't see any scenario that could possibly play out when Arian Foster would sign with the Dolphins. You have an often injured running back who has only played two full seasons in his seven year career. He had these injury plagued seasons in his prime and he will be turning 30 before the season starts. But, when he is healthy he is an elite running back, so he will sit back and wait for the right contract because he knows some team out there will pay him what he is looking for. The Miami Dolphins are known for coming in a bit low and Foster will be demanding a higher pay day. Why bother bringing him in. He isn't going to sign for a one year deal. He isn't going to play for peanuts. So unless they plan on signing him to a 2 year - 8-9 million dollar deal it's kind of a waste of time.

            I don't think we need a 30 year old injury prone RB. Lets just draft a RB in the middle rounds to pair with Ajayi. Its best to stay young and cheap at the RB position.

              Free agent Arian Foster (Achilles') left his Dolphins visit without a contract.

              #AsExpected. The Dolphins are probably waiting for Foster's price to come down, while Foster will likely gamble he can command more once he's further along in his rehab. Setting up a second visit elsewhere could speed things up between Miami and the ex-Texan.

              The Dolphins have appeared desperate to add a proven body behind second-year pro Jay Ajayi. It's almost as if the 'Fins should not have let Lamar Miller walk in free agency. Mar 29 - 4:57 PM

                If Elliott is available at #13 thats who I think we are going to draft.

                  Say for the sake of argument both Elliot and Hargreaves are available then what?

                    In that case Hargreaves. I don't take a RB that high unless his name is Todd Gurley.

                    That would be the responsible thing to do agreed. For some reason the Dolphins always get cute.

                  Not surprising at all that Foster left without a contract, it was stated that this was just a visit to have a sit down with Foster, check his injury progress and to more than likely get a feel for the situation. I don't think anyone is going to sign Foster right now (he's not ready), but i hope when he is ready we're going to at least make a run at him...

                    I love Knowshon Moreno,, but do you really think he's gonna play football again??..I mean, if he takes the field again it'll be like two years since he last played...

                    Moreno is only 28 and Gase was his OC in Denver back in 2013. If Moreno is healthy, bring him in and give him a look. A damned shame he was injured. I still remember what a stud he was for us in that first game against the Pats. Difference between him and Miller was night and day.

                    Yeah, that game with Moreno was one of our highlights of the decade,, sadly true to form for Fins fans it was his coming-out party & swan song all in one...When healthy he's such a tough runner; Miller's lucky Moreno came along when he did because IMO it was Moreno's toughness, attitude and leadership that made Miller a better back..

                  I have a strange feeling that this is all a smokescreen.

                  The Dolphins are not going to pay Foster what he wants. Everyone should know that. So, why bring him in to "check him out?"

                  I think the Dolphins are 'acting desperate' because they want someone to either draft Elliot ahead of them OR so they can have a trade partner if he does happen to fall to them at 13.

                  I do think there is a running back that they covet though, just not in the first round. Henry? Booker? Collins? Drake? I don't know who it is but I am not buying into this Arian Foster thing. They are too cheap and Foster is too expensive even with his injury.

                    Possibly... but if you look at a guy like Sweeny, he really wasn't an upgrade over Billy Turner. I'm glad we set a price point on each guy and didn't over pay for someone who wasn't a clear upgrade.

                    As for Foster, I think he's like a lot of the FA's out there - he's asking too much for what he'll be able to provide given his age and injury history. Foster has only ever played 2 full seasons in his career. The last time was 2012.

                    I'm perfectly fine drafting a kid like Drake, Prosise, Pressley, Marshall, etc... in the mid rounds.

                  I don't think they would both be available but if they were I would take Hargreaves.
