The Miami Dolphins are in full offseason mode, trying to determine which of their own free agents they want to resign to future contracts.  Tough decisions are being discussed regarding Jake Long, Reggie Bush, Sean Smith, Randy Starks, Brian Hartline, and Anthony Fasano.  With roughly $46 million in cap room, the amount the Dolphins will have to spend on other players will largely depend on which (and how many) of these free agents they resign. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com Right now, we know the Dolphins are involved in complex negotiations with Jake Long.  But, with word coming out that Jake wants $10 mil per season, I think the chances of bit #77 coming back are growing slimmer by the day.  So the Dolphins would likely convert Jonathan Martin to LT to replace Long and address RT in free agency or the draft (at a much lower price than $10 mil per season). Well, over the weekend, we received some news from Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com about the impending free agency of Reggie Bush.  LaCanfora said: “Reggie Bush’s ability to make explosive plays and contribute on special teams will lead to a nice market forming for him, I’m sure, and it’s highly unlikely he stays with Miami, sources said” (cont’d on page 2, click here)
