    I would keep Jordan Cameron! With a REAL quarterback you will see just how talented of a tight end this guy is. If the Dolphins let him go he will make the LONG list of guys who produce on other teams and we wonder why they didn't produce for the Dolphins. Well, in his case it would be because the Dolphins quarterback SUCKS! In the case of some of the other players it's because the coaches didn't know how to use them, or the head coach should have pulled the stick out of his ass and allowed a great player to take bathroom breaks because he is a shutdown corner.

      I would cut Wake and see if we can bring him back on the cheap since most every other team will also view him as a 3rd down pass rusher.

      I would keep Mitchell since he doesn't cost much and we need him since we need at least 3 DT's in our rotation along with Suh and Phillips.

      I would keep Jordan since he needs to be our SAM LB next year and he doesn't cost much.

      I would keep McCain since he is not a bad slot corner and he doesn't cost much.

      I agree that Cameron and Jennings need to go since they are not producing anywhere close to their contracts.

      Are you sure we can restructure with Suh and reduce his cap hit?

      I would cut Grimes since he is in decline and he costs too much.

      I would keep Albert for at least another year. If he is healthy he is still an elite LT and we have so many other needs to address.

      I would probably cut Misi since doesn't really have much to offer and he is overpaid.

      I would add Fox to that list since we have to upgrade the backup OT position.

        Yes we can restructure Suhs contract. The Texans did it with JJ Watt.

      The thing with Grimes is who do you replace him with as once again the FA market for CBs is not very good. We need Grimes at least another year. He may be in decline but there's nobody as of right now that's a #2 so at least Grimes can be that if we're lucky enough to draft/buy someone better

        With Wake for me is the injury with his age. I'm all for restructuring his contract if he gets back to being WAKE as he seems to be mostly pass rushing now. But will Wake be willing to do that? Wake might want to finish out his career for the 1st time on a team that can ACTUALLY make the playoffs.

          I agree with most of that, but I would try and restructure Cameron before cutting him. Everything else I am good with.

            I would keep Jordan Cameron and cut Misi. None of our LBS are worth keeping. They alone are the problem with the defense,

              I like Camerons POTENTIAL here but it seems like RT and JC are most of the time NOT on the same page. A lot of RTs INTs were targeting JC and JC messed up a lot of routes. There's still a half a season left for chemistry to occur and tighten up those routes but as of right now the money doesn't meet production.

                there is no way you can replace Mitchell and McCain for $2.5M each. We can easily free up $30-40M in cap space including the $10M roll over from this year. With that in mind, there is no reason in the world to re-structure anybody. You do this when your cap space back is against the wall, not before.

                Any FA's signed to a long term deal are gonna be cheap in year one, and will jump in year two. We could sign 4 high priced FA's for $15M the first year, as our signings have showed. So, you take the big hit on Suh, and any other player next year with much more room to structure contracts in 2017.

                However, the FA market has become much more competitive than the past. All teams are getting the $25-30M cap increases 2014 through 2016, and all teams have to spend 90% of their cap space. Teams have been, and will be keeping their own. In addition to money, a coach may make a difference to a degree, like one's who know what a player can do and put him in a position to do the same.

                  Should of traded Wake 3 years ago on the high. Oh well!!!!!!!! Now we have the opportunity to sell RT for a 1, if half the teams want him according to Mayock lol!
