    In the song Eminem tracked for the motion picture 8 Mile, he talks about getting "one shot, one opportunity and one that comes once in a lifetime." Jeff Ireland is at a cross roads with the Dolphins franchise and fans come tomorrow at 4PM.  All weekend long, the Dolphins’ front office has been burning the phone lines to lure the likes of free agents Mike Wallace, Jared Cook, Eric Winston, and many others to South Florida for a revival unseen since last year’s spending frenzy by Jeffrey Loria of the Miami Marlins or Miami Heat in 2010.  In one example, you have a franchise (Marlins) predicated on pitching development in the minors with a blending of free agents from rival teams.  On the other hand, the Miami Heat who have been the team that South Florida has all of a sudden taken ownership of after winning their second world title and have the best basketball player in the NBA in LeBron James.  From both examples, the Miami Heat have become seco...

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.

Dolphins Fan Tells Jake Long’s Wife “Screw Your Husband” She Responds “Don’t Worry, I Do”

Miami Dolphins Tackle Jake Long is a free agent and the team looks prepared to let him walk.

Get a life.“@craigerdoit: @jackielong_17 screw your husband!!!!!” Don’t worry, I do. — Jackie Long (@jackielong_17) March...

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.

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...

Burnett latest victim in Dolphins' LB house cleaning

Burnett...

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...

Hurricane Wallace Rocks Miami

Well, if it wasn’t clear last year to you that Mike Wallace would no longer be a Steeler this off-season it should definitely be now.  Yesterday, Mike signed a 5 year $65 million dollar deal with a Dolphins squad that went on an FA shopping spree this off-season.  What, you wanted a funnier intro?  Well, I would’ve gone with Mike Wallace retires to South Beach but the 60...
