The Victory Formation:
Former All-Pro NFL quarterback Daunte Culppeper appears to be just another athlete who has fallen on hard times financially. According to a report in the South Florida Business Journal, the house that Culpepper purchased while a member fo the Miami Dolphins is set to be foreclosed on by the bank: SunTrust Bank (NYSE: STI) filed a foreclosure lawsuit on Feb. 26 against DRKRC Land Trust, Culpepper and his wife. The 9,867-square-foot home at 16730 Berkshire Court in Landmark Ranch Estates is owned in the name of the land trust and the bank alleges that Culpepper is the beneficiary and guarantor. Culpepper purchased the home shortly after signing a free agent deal with the Dolphins back in 2006. Culpepper never experienced the same success with the Dolphins that he had in Minnesota, where he was twice named an All-Pro. If not for Peyton Manning throwing a then-NFL record 49 touchdowns in 2004, Culpepper may have won the MVP award. He led the NFL with 4717 yards passing and threw for 39 touchdowns against only 11 interceptions. He injured his knee in 2005 after only 7 games. His career with the Dolphins was short-lived, just the man who chose him over Drew [...]

Just when it all but seemed Miami Dolphins OT Jake Long was about to sign on the dotted line with the St. Louis Rams, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Dolphins are in the midst of making a "strong push" to re-sign him.
The Dolphins started this season with a roster which falls quite short of being a Super Bowl contender but if improved could become a player in the AFC playoff picture. Jeff Ireland knew this free agency was probably his last shot at redemption and certainly did not hold back in terms of making a splash.

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, the Miami Dolphins are “mounting a charge” to re-sign left tackle Jake Long after he recently left St. Louis without a deal.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Detroit Lions have reached an agreement with free agent S Louis Delmas on a two-year deal. PFT adds that Delmas will receive $9.465 million over two-years.
The team has since confirmed the agreement.
A previous report indicated that he was close to signing with the 49ers before it was later refuted.
Detroit has already added S Glover Quin...
Most NFL players dedicate their offseason to relaxing and working out, but Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline has himself a summer job. Hartline inked a five-year, $31 million contract extension with the Dolphins last week, but he has decided to keep his day job despite having a tremendous amount of financial security.

The Miami Dolphins are back to signing players every hour! Earlier today it was Dustin Keller and this afternoon the Dolphins signed Brandon Gibson, former Rams WR to a 3 year contract. Gibson adds depth to what is becoming a good receiving corps.
Additionally, the Dolphins announced that free agent cornerback, Brent Grimes visited today. Grimes tore his Achilles early in the 2012...
I spent the first half of the 2012 NFL season covering the Lions for Bleacher Report. During that time, I watched a team that just one season earlier looked like it was on the verge of great things collapse in the midst of off-field distractions and on-field shortcomings.
Perhaps the greatest of those shortcomings was the uncertainty at the running back position. It took a while...

The Miami Dolphins have a huge problem that should have been solved by this time last year. Now, that problem is becoming a huge issue. The problem I'm speaking of is, of course, general manager Jeff Ireland.
The Dolphins' GM should have been fired over a year ago, but the team gave him one more chance to turn the ship around. The selection of Ryan Tannehill is paying off...
It is not always true that the Detroit Lions make great decision is NFL free agency. Long time Lions fans remember the team handing out a big contract to QB Scott Mitchell, WR Az-Zahir Hakeem, and this team making other blunders signing free agents and often times dealing with their own free agents. In 2012 [...]
