- Knowshon Moreno to Fins RB reportedly signs a one year deal with Miami.
- Fins sign CB Finnegan Dolphins ink him to a 2 year, $11 million contract
- DT Randy Starks stays with Fins Reportedly signs a 2 year deal worth about $12 million
- OT Albert to Fins done Reportedly a 5 year, $46 million contract.
In a radio interview on WQAM, OT Bryant McKinnie stated that he would be willing to move to the right tackle position if he came back to Miami.
Bryant, who will turn 35 in May, has never played right tackle. (But he believes he could make the transition.) This year’s NFL draft has some quality depth at right tackle position also.
But Bryant played decent last year for Miami, helping to stabilize an offensive line that was in disarry. By bringing him back as a one year stop gap, it allows the Dolphins to use their 6 NFL draft picks in other areas.
Plus, McKinnie would be the backup to LT Albert should Albert get hurt. Thoughts? Good idea to bring him back? Join us on our message board and share your thoughts on this at FinNation Forums

When Miami released Dimitri Patterson and let Nolan Carroll move on to the Eagles, I had wondered if that meant that the Fins were going to allow Jamar Taylor or Will Davis step up into the #2 spot opposite Brent Grimes.
Taylor, a 2nd round pick, was a playmaker in college. But he battled a hernia problem for much of last season. Davis flashed big play potential in training camp last year. But the coaching staff felt he needed to develop more, so he was limited to playing in just 5 games. (Mainly due to injury.)
When the Dolphins brought CB Cortland Finnegan in for a visit, I realized that the coaching staff wanted another veteran back there. It makes sense. With Grimes locking down one side, you know opposing QBs are going to test the other CB.
But when I read that Miami signed Finnegan to a 2 year deal worth $11 million, I have to say I was not thrilled like so many other Fin fans. I didn’t have v Continue reading
I usually try to refrain from “knee-jerk” reactions to a Dolphins loss. I prefer to wait a day or so before posting anything, either on a message board or in an article. I give myself a chance to calm down and reflect on the game objectively. And yesterday’s loss to the Ravens is no different.
After the game, I was pissed. 6 sacks!??!? 4 in the 4th quarter?? 2 on the final drive?!?! @#!*&!
“Someone’s head should be on a platter!” I seethed.
But I decided to sleep on it. Maybe cooler heads will prevail?
Well after a night’s sleep, I still feel like Miami needs to make some big changes. QB Ryan Tannehill is on pace to be sacked a record 77 times this year, and that is UNACCECTABLE!! Miami is risking the health, both physical and mental, of their young QB.
The physical risk is obvious. The mental risk? Look no further than the QB who currently holds the sack record, David Carr. A promising young QB for the Texans, Carr was so rattled and shaken after his 7 Continue reading
Yesterday, the Miami Dolphins released CB Richard Marshall. The cut will save the Dolphins almost $3.5 million in cap space. But for a team that was under the salary cap by about $16 million before the move, I am not sure if that was really a big issue.
During training camp and preseason, Marshall had be rotating with Dimitri Patterson for the starting spot opposite Brent Grimes. By all accounts, Patterson has had a solid preseason.
But there are no reports that Marshall had played poorly. Although his play has not been stellar, many believed he had played well enough to at least warrant a roster spot despite his salary cap hit. ($4.55 million this season.)
According to a team source, Marshall was a great locker room guy and calming influence.
The Dolphins have to be excited about the additions of Will Davis and Jamar Taylor. But Davis, for all of his outstanding plays, still shows his inexperience. And Taylor has been battling injuries throughout camp. Multiple sources stated it appeared Taylorwasagainbattling Continue reading
Q. Is the Dolphins season over with Keller being gone?
A. No. If an injury to one player (who isn’t an elite QB) ends your season, you weren’t very good to begin with.
Make no mistake though, this injury hurts…BIG TIME. I think this injury could be as big if not bigger than an injury to Wallace. Wallace’s outside speed would require a CB and a safety for coverage, allowing a lot of room in the middle of the field. Dustin Keller would of been invaluable there. Miami just lost 8 plus TDs easy.
We can only hope that Michael Egnew and/or Dion Sims steps up.
Q. Will the Fins make a trade for a TE?
A. We cannot rule that out. Ireland has been known to wheel and deal. But I think the Fins might wait to see who all gets cut by other teams first.
Q. What is up with Miami’s RB(runningbacks)?
A. I’m not sure what you mean by that. If you are talking about why we haven’t seen more of Lamar Millerinpreseason, Continue reading
