Are the dolphins ever going to sign anybody in the offence side of the ball.They do not even have a complete offence line in place?

How much was the deal for Traylor for? If it's for small money, I'm very happy with it

A little needed light at last. Good move for depth with Traylor back as insurance. Picking up more injury prone players is interesting!

Let's get this straight. Cam Cameron just signed a guy named Cameron. Sounds a little fishy to me. Cameron Frye is a free agent, maybe he can punt.

Has Keith had his knees scoped? How sure are we that he can complete a full season? Or are we going to "spot" use him in key run-stop situations to prolong his career?

Worrell is a nice pickup; hopefully, he will elevate the play of the special teams.

I didn't see any salary figures, so I wonder how this impacted the cap.

Give them time - May go heavy on offense in the draft. Plus when the overpaying starts in FA they will probably be a little more active.

Glad they got the "Truck" back he was a force in the middle. I'd bet that frees the fins to go after A solid OL if Quinn is not available.

Good move, Traylor still is solid, hopefully they didnt give up to much $$. Work Evans into things, but Traylor is a run stopper, D will be tough again. Not a whole lot to go get for O line in FA, good guys are gone, and mostly overpaid. Get Stallworth, draft the line, and hopefully CPep has some bounce left. Cant rebuild to a decent O Line in one year. Would be nice though

Bringing back traylor helps with the depth on the defensive line we needed, maybe add one more player the draft and then worry bout everything else. we need special teams help now that are top tacklers morris and minor, the leader in touchbacks mare, and are top return guy welker are gone. the special teams is what might get overlooked. also just read an article that says the fins are working out a trade for trent green. if they get green and draft a young qb, i promise culpepper is gone. green would be the automatic starter seeing is how he knows camerons offense. remember even if culpepper comes back relatively heathy he still needs to learn a whole new offense. if he's not sure dropping back to pass in the new system, that doesnt bode well for the pass protection and his knee, thats what hurt him last year! from here on out do not focus on defense until we have helped out the offensive side of the ball. i am definately excited bout this offensive overhaul though, something to look forward to and support to the fullest!

Solid moves. Still not sold on signing Feely... not really an upgrade and didn't really save the team much $.

As far as offensive signings.... or the lack of: that probably has more to do w/ lack of talent in the FA market than an effort on the team's part. At this point I'd expect that they'll really concentrate on O in the draft.

That's what the draft will be for. And they did sign Martin from GB. Patience.

This defense is going to be one for the ages. Even with the purge on the offensive side of the ball I can't see them being any worse than last year. Maybe we can make it back to .500 this year. IMO that would be a succesful season for me.

Are these signings news worthy?

It's pretty obvious that based on the moves so far, the draft is going to be all offense. The defense is pretty much in place but the offense will be mostly new.

One more big move in free agency with an O-line man like Steinbach. The speed in the draft like McGinn. The draft has speed speed and more spped and talent, real deep draft and 9 picks. Look out we might see the playoffs. Might not though lot of talent in the AFC look out for the Ravens and Jets in the championship game with Ravens in the Superbowl. Man I hate the Jets. Go Phins!!!!

Traylor siging is ok, although the man is 37 and has bad knees. Still think there is good maybe possible great DL in this draft. Sign Stallworth and draft Alan Branch from Mich. I think the Fins are focused on Levi Brown in the 1st round. He can start right now.

Having Traylor back is HUGE...LITERALLY.
You hope the money is reasonable,but the whole league is pouring $$$ into players pockets.
I would now figure that Cam+Co. are going to use most of the draft on the offense.Remember,he is an offensive mind.Also,Hudson Houck is still one of the best and yes,even Mularkey,if you keep him on a leash,will contribute.

I'm happy to see the team resign Keith Traylor. He gives the team nice depth and he is a factor in stopping the run game. Cameron Worrell adds depth to the secondary and special teams, which is important.
