Jake Long to IR

Jake Long was placed on the IR.

OT Jake Long will miss the rest of the season with a torn triceps in his left arm. The Dolphins placed him on injured reserve Tuesday night. The Dolphins also released safety Anderson Russell.

In their place, the Dolphins signed offensive tackle Patrick Brown, who played for the Vikings last season, and safety Tyrone Culver, who spent the past several years with the Dolphins.

Whether or not Jake Long, who will be a free agent at the end of the season, is resigned remains to be seen.

Miami Dolphins 2012 Free Agency Primer

The media and fans have started speculating about Miami making a major splash in free agency by signing a “franchise QB” like Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn.

To do that though the team will need cap space. According to the salary cap figures I can find Miami presently has $108 mil committed to the 2012 salary cap with the players currently under contract. Early projections put the 2012 salary cap near the $120 mil allotted to teams in 2011 – meaning Miami already has some, but not a whole lot, of wiggle room (especially when you factor in Miami must also have space for the incoming rookies).

Free Agency Primer Part 1: re-signing the Dolphin’s free agents

Before looking at bringing in a QB, Miami must first look at re-signing its own free agents. Unfortunately most of Miami’s key free agents are on the defensive side of the ball, so departures here could adversely affect Miami’s good but not great defense.
