4. Vernon Carey, Dolphins OT


Does anybody even know the Dolphins paid their right tackle like he was a left tackle ($15 million) last year? No position has fared better in free-agency than OL – it seems they all bounce around the NFL collecting big bonuses – though they rarely compare with Jonathan Ogden or Walter Jones. The Dolphins recently unloaded another overpaid lineman in guard Justin Smiley, and last year paid center Jake Grove like he’s Dwight Stephenson. It’s part of doing business in the NFL these days.

Carey is not overpaid I'd say for his production he is paid justly, As he cannot help that Henne has taken a little too long at times.

Carey was a beast last year before his shoulder (?) started bothering him. I like Vernon.

All these guys are over paid, but like Alex said, I think comparatively speaking, for his production I think he is worth what we paid him.

Carey's struggles for the most part have been proportionate to the quality of guard he has had next to him. When you have a turnstile to the left of you, it makes your job twice as difficult.

They pay him like a left tackle because he was a left tackle when they paid him.
