Pace leaves without a contract

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The Dolphins signed two linebackers within the first two days of free agency, but the one they really hoped to reel in, Calvin Pace, apparently slipped the hook.

Does anyone know what is going on with Rex Hadnot? Is Parcells uninterested due to performance, character or price?

its pretty clear that pace wants to be jet so i say
let the jets have him and his 20+ million gueranteed
money.

seems like every player the jets have signed this f/a has
gotten a 20 mill guaranteed money deal. that is going to
catch up with them very quick!

i wanted pace in a bad way because i do think he would
fit what we need, but,YOU DONT pay 20 mill guarenteed
money to a guy who has ONE good season.

and i hope the finz dont come close to that kind of nonsense. he is a 7 mill guy at best.

good luck pace! if the jets are offering that, take it an RUN because no one else is going to offer you that.

The say that this year draft is very good for gaurds so I am sure that we will have a second round pick that is our starting guard.

No single player is worth 20 Million up front, better off signing a few players at 6 to 7 million and save some money to spread around to see what grows.If money is the main reason to sign, then perhaps we need to look elsewhere. Bill

McCown and Ferguson? Are you kidding me. Come on Tuna if your going to improve the team then improve. Don't bring in same level talent that you have released just to put your name on the Dolphins. We don't need players that were special teamers on other team moving to starting linebacker positions. Remember your not coaching from the sideline your just coaching from the booth. You won't be able to get in the guys faces game in and game out. Man talk about trying to bury a franchise. I miss Joe Robbie and Eddie Jones. Nobody new how to run a franchise like them. Now its just the Big EGO TUNA on the menu.

no more to report on pace than that??? come on. has this guy disappeared or what. someone call him and find out what he is going to do. he is the biggest addition they could make to a defence that last year couldn't stop a high school team.

Reality...how may NFL teams have you put together?
you're being the typical dolphin fan to cries and yells about every move. What did you want, asante samuel here? what would he do besides suck up the extra money the fins have? 1-2 marquee (big money) players are not going to help this team at this point.

Let tuna do his work. If in a couple seasons there's no improvement, then I'll be right there with you asking why...

My thoughts exactly. I think we should file a missing person report.
