  • 2016 Salary Cap- A closer Look

    Some Phans are concerned over our cap next year, and there is no reason to be. Projecting ahead, we will be roughly $5M over next year's cap but, have all kinds of options to deal with that overage. Here's a listing of some of the potential savings to start with.

    Jordan- Unless there is a Miraculous Resurrection, he will be gone and save us $3M
    Jennings- Would cost $5.5M or save $4M. Due to age and money cannot imagine keeping him.

    Cameron- Would cost $9.5M or save $7.5M. If he plays well, we give him a new deal which should cost around $4M first year, saving $5.5M or, move on and save $7.5M..

    With these three moves, in addition to the expected roll over of $7-8M, it totals at least $20M, which leaves us $15M.

    Re-signing OV and Miller IMO will cost around $7-8M their first year with signing bonus, etc IF we want to do that, we would still have enough for Shelby, back up QB, the draft @ about $3M.

    This is Option #1. IF this team wins a playoff game, and we want to keep the band together, we can do so with making very few moves.

    Option #2 follows.

    If Jennings plays well I would let him finish his contract and keep him.there are few veteran receivers that play above and beyond year in and year out and I have a feeling about him. Call me crazy but Jordan I'll keep my sliver of hope. I don't mind moving from Cameron due to concussion issue and hope that Sims and a early round TE can do the trick!
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      Option #2

      Albert- Cost $10M or. save $5M. No idea what to expect from him this year.

      Wake- Cost $9.8M or, save $8.4M. I think he is good at a high level for two years but, who knows.

      Grimes- Cost $9.5M or, save $6.5M. Hoping he can maintain for two year but again, who knows.

      Misi- Cost $4.9M or, save $3.7M. Injuries and young LB's likely make him expendable.

      Fox- Cost $1.5M or, save $1.5M. Don't see us keeping him.

      That's $25M in cap savings in addition to the rest to make moves, depending on how these players play.

      Overall, the team has nothing but options with next year's salary cap and none are any reason for Phan's concern. We are in good shape.

        Wake is a Dolphin for life and if there was a guy I'd eat it on the salary just to keep him a Dolphin to retirement it's Wake, and deservedly so. Love his rags to riches story!

          Wake is a great player. I do not see a fall off in his play because of how well he takes care of himself. I cannot say the same for Albert with the injuries, and hoping Grimes comes back from a mediocre year (for him) last year.

            Wake should have a monster year with the addition of Suh.. albert we better keep our fingers crossed because of his track record with injuries.. As for Grimes, one of my big concerns this season is no doubt the secondary. We need him to have a much better season then the last..

              Agreed. It is gonna be very interesting on what we do next year at DE. Wake is my favorite player and a star but, is aging with a high price. OV has been good, needs to take the next step but, will cost a bunch. Fede is cheap and showing signs of being VG. Then there is Shelby who has been a rock. What to do?
