With the new edition of our OC we have a great opportunity to to some insite of Miami's upcoming free agent's that will hit the open market in March.
Miami's free agents:
1). Chad Henne, QB, Dolphins. Age: 27. Chad Henne has some solid physical tools, but it appears as if he'll never have the mental aspect of football down. Still, I'd like to see what he could do with some really good coaching.
2). Vernon Carey, G, Dolphins. Age: 31. There were some questions about Vernon Carey entering the 2011 campaign, but he held up pretty well at his new position. He gave up three sacks and was whistled for only one penalty all year.
3). Paul Soliai, NT, Dolphins. Age: 28. At 6-4, 355 pounds, Paul Soliai is a monstrous, run-stuffing nose tackle. He made $12.3 million with the franchise tag this season.
4). Kendall Langford, DE/DT, Dolphins. Age: 26. Kendall Langford is a really good, young five-tech who excels in both stopping the run and putting pressure on the quarterback. He's a key piece of Miami's 3-4 stop unit who will have to be retained.
5). Phillip Merling, DE/DT, Dolphins. Age: 27. Phillip Merling could barely do anything this year coming off an Achilles injury. Perhaps he can bounce back and finally live up to his potential next year.
Could this mean that Glenn Dorsey days are truly numbered with this defensive free agent talent and one year left on his contract? Is a trade coming for him this off season?? Looks like there is some opportunity to upgrade and ad depth to some positions for us.
Let me know what you think.
