With recent rumblings that the St.Louis Rams are open to trade down from their second overall pick in the draft, the possibility of Robert Griffin III being a Miami Dolphin is becoming stronger. The Dolphins, who are in the market for a quarterback, draft eighth overall as of now and need to move up in order to draft Griffin. If the Dolphins do manage to trade up with the Rams, they will be pleasantly surprised with choosing Griffin. I played with Griffin at several football camps in high school, and I believe he is the real deal.

Iowa left tackle Riley Reiff is being projected to go to the Miami Dolphins in various mock drafts. The problem here is that the Dolphins already have pro-bowl left tackle Jake Long at the position. However, Reiff has no issue switching over to the right side if needed.

Reiff has strong connections to current Dolphins wide receivers coach Ken O’Keefe, as O’Keefe was his offensive coordinator last year. I have no problem with this move as it solidifies the line with four first round draft picks. However, he is not a flashy player and this could cause problems with many Dolphin fans.

After reaching an agreement with tight end Jermichael Finley for a two-year, $14 million contract, the Green Bay Packers have opened up the possibility of franchise tagging quarterback Matt Flynn. This directly correlates with the Miami Dolphins plans at quarterback as they are in the market for Flynn.

I do hope that the Dolphins pass up on Flynn as he has shown his skills in only two games. That is not a large enough sample size and they will be making the same mistake they did with busts AJ Feeley, Cleo Lemon, and Brock Huard. Save the money and draft a quarterback.

Chad Henne era is coming to an end

Posted: February 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

Quarterback Chad Henne will be an unrestricted free agent in March and the 2008 second-round pick out of Michigan is unlikely to return to the Miami Dolphins in 2012, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Henne suffered a season-ending injury to his non-throwing shoulder last season, which opened the door for Matt Moore to start the final 12 games.  Henne, 26, started 31 of his 36 games with the Dolphins, completing 60.7 percent of 1,065 attempts for 7,114 yards with 31 touchdowns and 37 interceptions.

I believe Henne was not given a fair shake with the Dolphins. The Dolphins will end up regretting this move as he will succeed somewhere else.

Dolphins plan to go after Manning?

Posted: February 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

In recent NFL news, it has become a popular thought that the Indianapolis Colts will cut Peyton Manning. The reason for this is that they will save $28 million dollars in cap space by cutting him. They plan on drafting quarterback Andrew Luck with the first overall pick, and thus will not need two quarterbacks paid in the upper echelon of players in the NFL. If this happens, the Miami Dolphins are making it a high priority to  sign Manning. Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross has made it known to the public that he is “infatuated” with signing Manning.
