Miami apparently has no interest in paying top dollar to retain Jake Long, who was the team's No. 1 overall pick in 2008.   Yet there are two teams in the hunt for Long, reports Mike Garafolo of USA Today.  The Chicago Bears and St. Louis Rams are most interested in the soon-to-be former Miami offensive tackle. Both Chicago and St. Louis have a need at offensive tackle to protect their starting quarterbacks: Jay Cutler and Sam Bradford.  As free agency nears, it is more and more evident that we've probably seen the last of Long in a Miami uniform. The Dolphins have the cap room to spend but haven’t shown any indication they will use it on the veteran left tackle. The only chance of Long returning to Miami is if he doesn't get much interest elsewhere in free agency and is willing to take a team-friendly contract.

Report: Mike Wallace to the Dolphins is a “done deal”

According to the Palm Beach Post, Mike Wallace signing with the Miami Dolphins is believed to be a “done deal.” We hear from someone we trust that it’s a “done deal” that Wallace will be signing with Miami. The writing has been on the wall for a while now that Wallace will land in Miami.  It would be a shock if he signs anywhere else. Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI...

Dolphins Re-Sign S Chris Clemons

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that the Dolphins re-signed FS Chris Clemons to a one-year contract. Clemons, 27, was a big contributor for the Dolphins this season. He tallied 99 tackles and two interceptions while playing in all 16 games. Miami seems likely to lose free agent CB Sean Smith, but keeping Clemons at least maintains some stability in their secondary.

Money and Weather are the Only Reasons to Sign with Miami Dolphins

One of the things I love most about free agency is that it gives a glimpse into the type of player and person these free agents are. What I mean by that is that it’s easy to tell who is in it for the money and who is in it for the ring. 2013 is no different, as one team, the Miami Dolphins, continue to get mentioned as a major player. The problem with that is, the Dolphins have...

Miami Dolphins sign MLB Dannell Ellerbe

This was the one move that came completely out of nowhere. Middle linebacker wasn’t a need of the Dolphins’. Sure, Karlos Dansby was getting older, but he still played at a very high level and cutting him and giving Dannell Ellerbe even more money makes absolutely no sense. Dansby was owed about 15 million over the final two seasons of his deal, including just 6 million this...
