Kind of figured he’d go to a closer to ‘ship team than us. But would’ve liked him. Understand it at his age he’s going to be more particular.

It would've been nice to get him, but I'd rather trade for a younger player we can sign to an extension.

Good for him to take his talents to South Beach though.

Would have been a nice signing. Still a few DTs available but they're not big household names. Hassan Ridgeway was about the only guy I recognized and he's more of a NT if that's what they want. There will probably be post-June 1 and camp cuts coming.

This is the secondary market window - between now and the start of camp - where the remaining guys will get scooped up. From there we have to wait for camp cuts, but the way they do those now it's not as useful as it was in the past because they let you keep a large roster deeper into camp now so the window to nab a guy that gets cut is much shorter.

Ouch


https://www.si.com/nfl/dolphins/news/ca ... %20minimum.

Calais Campbell didn't mention money when he described this week his reasons for joining the Miami Dolphins, which wasn't surprising because NFL players rarely talk about money being a motivating factor.

But in Campbell's case, it most definitely was true that money didn't play any sort of role in choosing the Dolphins over what he said were "quite a few teams" that were interested in his services.


The proof came when the details of Campbell's contract became public Friday via overthecap.com and spotrac.com and showed his one-year deal being worth $2 million, with a base salary of $1.2 million that's the league veteran minimum. Campbell also got a $795,000 signing bonus.

Campbell's cap number for 2024 will be $2 million, the 29th-highest among Dolphins players.

One would think Campbell could have gotten more considering his performance with the Atlanta Falcons last season when he started all 17 games, had 56 tackles and 6.5 sacks and was the 23rd-ranked edge defender by Pro Football Focus and made $7 million.

Campbell willing to play for free to go to Miami
