Just to add to the above......It’s not a great WR draft at the top either, so that will probably push the market up for FA Recievers.

I agree it is unlikely we get him for that but wouldn’t pay him more than 12 mil per season maybe a little ambitious but I was looking at Hilton and Adams contract. My thinking was

5 years


Signing Bonus $20,000,000

Year 1 - 3+4

Year 2 - 6.5+4

Year 3 - 8.5+4

Year 4 - 10+4

Year 5 - 12+4

I would hate to see Landry go but I would not be totally crushed if he does. He makes a ton of catches but in reality he is not a game changer. I think a big down the middle TE and Grant in the slot would be a lot better line up then Landry in the slot and a non productive TE Miami has played with the last 2 years. Landry also has the uncanny ability to kill a big drive with stupid penalties. 

Unless Miami signs a starting franchise QB I say stay with Tannehill and hopefully draft his replacement.

CAP SPACE: $30.43m


S Michael Thomas - 3 years, $6.4M ($3.4M guaranteed including $1.5M signing bonus)
Cap hits: $2M, $2M (400K gtd), $2.4M (not guaranteed)

Thomas is a special teams ace who has been snubbed from the Pro Bowl for two consecutive years, he leads the NFL in special teams tackles since 2014. This deal pays him like a top-3 core special teamer, which he has earned.

K Cody Parkey - 3 years, $6M ($1.5M guaranteed including $1.2M signing bonus)
Cap hits: $1.6M, $2M, $2.4M

Parkey missed two FGs, had three successful onside kick attempts, and 41.8% of his kickoffs resulted in touchbacks (no TDs returned, 19.7 return yards on average). He's a consistent if not outstanding kicker and this a reasonable contract. 

TE Anthony Fasano - 1 year, $2.85M ($1.25M guaranteed)
Fasano was essentially used exclusively as a blocking TE: he played 519 snaps and only saw two targets (catching both, one of which was a TD). This is essentially the same deal he got last offseason. Miami also has special teamer / H-back MarQueis Gray under contract as well as A.J. Darby, whom Miami snagged off waivers from Denver and who played 51 snaps over the last two weeks of the season.

LS John Denney - 1 year, $980k
Same deal as last year. In 13 years, Miami hasn't had a single errant snap to my knowledge on special teams. The longest-tenured Dolphin stays on for another year.

DE Terrence Fede - 1 year, $790k
Another core special teamer who has blocked multiple kicks in his career, Fede simply isn't good enough on defense to garner any market interest. Miami re-signs him for the veteran minimum.

Cap space: $22.21M minus 2018 draft picks (8 total picks, $7.29M)
=$14.92 million in cap space


WR Jarvis Landry Signs With Bears - 5 years, $70 million

Miami's offer simply doesn't cut it financially.  Landry signs in Chicago to join new HC Matt Nagy and young QB Mitch Trubisky who needs a security blanket down the middle. This contract makes Landry the 4th highest paid WR, which is manageable when you have $42 million in cap space.


DE William Hayes Signs With 49ers - 1 year, $3.25 million

After suffering an injury in 2017, Hayes only managed 272 snaps last season. He performed well against the run and was surprisingly quick for a 32 year old DE. Miami expressed interest in re-signing him, but not for the same contract they gave him last season. With Wake, Branch, and Harris still on the roster, Miami can't overspend for an older rotational DE with 8 picks coming in the draft.


The first day of free agency closes without any Miami signings.
