Post Omar Kelly: Phins to sign Dansby, make 5 yr. offer to Rolle
Quote:
Call it the changing of the linebackers.

Joey Porter is on his way out the door, and free agent Karlos Dansby apparently is on his way in.

The Miami Dolphins are expected to announce Porter's release Friday, which will save the team $9.5 million over the next two seasons. An NFL source says plenty of that savings will be offered to Dansby, who is expected to board a private jet at 10 p.m. Pacific time bound for Miami.

Dansby will be in South Florida to work out the details of a lucrative, multiyear contract that the Dolphins hope will end the linebacker's brief free agency. The NFL's free agent signing period begins at midnight.


Quote:
The Dolphins are also pursuing Dansby's teammate in Arizona, former University of Miami standout Antrel Rolle.

According to another source, the Dolphins offered Rolle a five-year contract Thursday evening, shortly after the Cardinals released him to avoid paying a $4 million roster bonus. However, the Dolphins' offer was under the $8 million per year Rolle is seeking. The New York Giants are expected to offer that much when Rolle visits Friday morning.

Since he's not technically a Free Agent yet, how does Dansby know that Miami will sign and such?

It's called tampering Iowafin, tampering. The Redskins look like they will get Peppers signed to from what I have read from ProFootballtalk.com.

It's not like these teams wait for the free agency period to start to begin communicating with these agents.

Mortenson said it's between the Giants and Dolphins, but NY has already conceded...

Welcome to Miami Mr. Dansby!!!

Lol..well that's what I'm wondering. Isn't he property of Arizona, and any sort of contract talks is illegal, so why would Dansby be on a plane to Miami?

Yes he is, but Arizona stated that they were not going to franchise him again, so he was going to be free.

Until the NFL clamps down on it, team will continue to tamper. As far as Rolle is concerned, I think if Miami is somewhere in the ballpark he will take the Miami deal because he wants to come home.

Well, maybe not tonight, but he will be tomorrow as he just said on NFL Live on ESPN that he is heading to Miami on Friday.

I don't think he leaves Miami tomorrow. Miami may also have a very legitimate chance of landing Antrel Rolle also.

Wow! I wouldve been happy getting 1 of the 3 but Friday could be exciting. Maybe Boldin is riding along to keep Dansby company. . . . . Is there a smiley that acts out praying & pleading?

Dansby would be a good pickup. I don't want Boldin at this point. Not worth the price when the injuries are factored in along with his age. Brandon Marshall or Dez Bryant, PLEASE.

The other rumor that came up tonight was Antonio Bryant. I didn't know he was a year younger then Boldin but does anyone like him more?

I am sure there is plenty of "unofficial" talk going on around this league..

Welcome to Miami Karlos :yay:

Hopefully since there are no other serious suitors we can get him for a lesser price.

Havent felt this good since the last time we signed some other big time defensive free agents!!

Hopefully Rolle will consider the lower contract based on the lack of state tax here in Florida. When making that much money it adds up to a nice penny.

This is like the beginning of the holiday season for me with the draft being Christmas Day!

If Parcells wants Dansby then he will not be leaving Miami without a signed contract. I'm a bit surprised by the Rolle news. I realize its an uncapped year but will Miami want to keep the contracts of Rolle, Wilson and Bell? Thought I read that the Fins are very high on Culver as well.

I mentioned Antonio Bryant a week ago and I dont think a single person repsonded. I realize he isn't a number one but the lack of interest in the market tells me he could probably serve as a bridge (maybe 3 yr contract) so that Hartline and Turner can develop. It also doesn't cost Miami a draft pick.

Wilson will be out the door if Rolle comes in.

Antonio Bryant .. I dunno, I have a strong feeling he may be a waste of money.

If we sign Dansby, how's that effect our 1st round pick. Nose tackle or WR ?

Yeah, but imagine rolle and mcclain in the middle, wake and jt on the outside .. rolle and bell in the secondary with our young corners (hopefully) turning the corner.. could be a good D, especially if we could pick up a NT in the second..

I really think we go NT Dan williams i Believe, because if we do not resign Ferg, then we have a HUGE whole there and need a guy that can come in and play right away

I agree. Putting pressure on the QB up the middle takes pressure off our secondary. I would like to see McClain but I'm just not that confident in him. Either way, I'm so pumped about the potential what we're giving Nolan to work with. Put it together Mike!

About the Rolle deal, I saw on my NationFootballPost app on my phone this morning, that supposedly we already offered him the 5 year deal, but it wasn't close to the 8million per year that he wants and he turned it down. He's supposedly flying to NY this morning to meet with the Giants. I just tried finding the article with this on NFP's website, but I can't seem to locate it.

I'm wondering if we will get in a bidding war for him, or just let him go. Though that could be part of his plan by going to NY.

Ed Reed nor Troy Polamalu(sp?) make $8mil a year. I understand trying to get all you can.. but Rolle isn't in the same class as those 2 safeties.

I'd say Dan Williams or we draft Earl Thomas, Taylor Mays, or trade up for Eric Berry since Gibril Wilson is gone
