Would you give a 2ed to the Phins for Oliver?

Recommended Posts

The Dolphins are going to try to tag Vernon Oliver then trade him. I doubt they get a 1st, but a 2ed isn't out of the question.

 

Pro's: He's young and a good pressuring DE.

Con's: Not exactly a good 3-4 fit and will command a large contract..

I wouldn't want to spend high FA money and a high draft pick for him.  Seems like investing double resources to get one player..  I'd rather spend more money for Von Miller and keep the draft pick.

Good luck to the Dolphins. Between all their other contracts they will be strapped to the cap if they tag Vernon which limits leverage. Teams will call their bluff, and wait for the Dolphins to cut him. IMO it would be a terrible move in the Dolphins tagged him.

 

I have heard the same rumor about the Jets tagging Wilkerson then trying to trade him as well.

No, it would basically be, the Phins tag him then trade him. The trade doesn't go through until he signs a long term deal. No deal, no draft pick.

The Bronco's will 100% tag Miller, just like the Panthers will tag Norman, so unless we offer a 1st PLUS we won't get any play for Miller..

He would have to agree to it, which means he is only going to accept a deal that pays him his asking price or close to it. We would be double paying.

    • Yeah since we moved to Indianapolis in 1984 we only have, -a SB win in 2006   -2 SB appearances = 2006 and 2009   -5 AFC Title Game appearances = 1995, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2014   -12 Divisional Round appearances = 1987, 1995, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2018   -We were 5-2 with JB and in 1st place in the AFC South in 2019 but yet people still want to complain about our team and franchise.  We aren't the Pats, who gives a crap - they are known cheaters too. We have some spoiled fans in here, that is my opinion. 
    • Lol.  True but it could also be so much better. That’s what makes it tough.  As Colts fans...we seldom have a moment to breathe easy.  We are constantly under the stress of tight games.  We live perpetually on the fine line between victory and defeat week after frigin week.  Not good for the heart if you don’t keep it all in its proper context and perspective in the grand scheme of life.
    • It's tough being a Colt's fan, but it could be worse.  GO BROWNS.   
    • I think T.Y. returns to play the Texans.  He always seems to find a way to play and torture Houston.  Problem is by then it’s very possible that the damage may have already been done.  We have botched what was supposed to have been the lightest part of our schedule while the rest of our division has made haste.  We will be locked in a dog fight for our survival the rest of the way.  
    • I think that concussion that Leonard had threw him off his game a little. He played pretty good against Miami and looks healthy again. Leonard isn't great but he is good IMO. When he plays our defense is usually better. I could even make an argument he is our best defensive player, Justin Houston is the only other guy that may be better and he may be a Hall of Famer.
