Hmmmm ..... that's a crapload of money invested in a group that didn't play as well as expected together. Rashad Jones is safe, but could another
free agent pick up from last year be a mistake?

“I don’t think it really turned out as well as we thought [based on] what we saw in training camp,” Gase said, referring to McDonald’s return from his eight game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miam ... story.html
McDonald, who has started 61 NFL games in five seasons, contributed 45 tackles, one interception and broke up three passes in the eight games he played for Miami last season.
“T.J. did a great job of being ready to go, and got in there and was physically able to do it. But we didn’t have that chemistry we’re looking for,” Gase said of McDonald and Jones, who was selected to the Pro Bowl for the second time in 2017. “It took those guys a while to get a feel for each other.”
Gase’s discomfort with how Jones and McDonald played together hinted that changes could be coming to that unit.
