    With today being the beginning that players can begin to get cut, any notable cuts out there as of yet? I'm hoping that the Panthers cut Dan Morgan. I'd still like to take a flyer on him for the vet. minimum. In a rotation, I think he would be able to maintain his health and not have to be the 'guy' as he was in Carolina.

    There will be lots, I'm sure, which is why I'm not the least bit concerned about ILB or CB until we get a way into this.

    The first ones I've heard are the Dolphins with Marty Booker, Trent Green and old friend Keith Traylor.

    Can we sign players immediately if they're released or are they unsignable until UFA time starts March 1 (or thereabouts) ?

    Tough to rely on a player thats never played a full 16 games in a season since coming into the league. But i agree on the fact that he might be a good situational backup guy that would benefit playing here. He's 29 so hes no spring chicken or anything. And in the 3 games he did play in this season he had 22 tackles.

    I would welcome a Dan signing but would have to wonder at what cost and would he accept his role?

    Personally i dont think he comes here. But would love if he did.

    Makes sense that the Dolphins will be cleaning house, with the new regime down there. Personally, I wouldnt want to see Dan Morgan here for anything more than the minimum, with his injury history, and even then I wouldn't want him to be higher than fourth on our ILB depth chart. You just can't rely on him to give you more than a few games, and chances are as good as not, IMO, that after this year he'll be done with pro football.

    As soon as they're cut they are street free agents. They can sign at any time.

    OT: Dolphins release nine players

    I guess Parcells isn't wasting any time.

    Good move for the Dolphins. If anything is true about a 1-15 team, it's probably that almost everyone needs to go, and, if they start drafting well now, they'll have the cap space to keep a nucleus together for the long haul.

    Anyone know if any of those three OL are any good?

    They're either washed-up vets or no-name scrubs.

    Toledo was a 4th-round pick in 2006 but has been injured the past two seasons.

    Marquay Love is a 2007 UFDA who converted from DT and was on their practice squad.

    Marion Dukes is a 2007 UDFA who left the team and is coaching at Clemson. Was on the Reserve/Left Squad list all year.

    Re: OT: Dolphins release nine players

    Parcells still has absolutely no semblance of a good QB and there won't be any on the market.

    (Save for Derek Anderson, who would require a 1st/3rd round pick though)

    So the 2008 Dolphins QB will be...

    A) Cleo Lemon
    B) John Beck
    C) A unproven rookie QB
    D) A horrible free agent pick up.

    Wonder if this means the Dolphins are looking to draft QB? I can't imagine the organization has the highest confidence in Josn Beck right now.

    Re: Any player cuts as of yet? [merged]

    Mike Wahle released by Panthers. Worth a look? 6"6 304 (smaller guard but more better fit for ZBS) and with questions with Neal's injury..who knows

    Re: OT: Dolphins release nine players

    I have little doubt the Browns would trade Anderson for the Dolphins' #2 if it were offered. With Anderson in line to get a big $$$ contract, though, that would be a very iffy deal for Miami. With Anderson's up and down year and stunning lack of accuracy I doubt I'd sign him to big $$$ if I were the Dolphins even if no compensation were required.

    Agreed, plus the Browns have Brady Quinn waiting in the wings. This has Brees/Rivers written all over it.
