    Just saw it on si.com
    $20m guaranteed, but no disclosure on length of the deal.

    What does this mean on the Taylor? That more likely he will be a Phin next year (since they're improving or trying to improve), or is he replacing Taylor.

    Seems like half the free agents signed today are now Dolphins, lol. I'm surprised they could get all these huge contracts worked out just since midnight:D:rolleyes:

    Re: Dolphins sign Calvin Pace

    We can sit there and say overpaid but there improving their teams.
    We need to do something but retain our best gunner on special teams.
    I really wanted Pace.
    Now unless we bring in a Briggs, Haggans, lito, jason taylor i'm a little shocked.
    It was last year damn't.
    Before hand i was use to doing nothing in free agency then the one year we land Colvin.
    Last year was like christmas over the offseason but now it's like that kid who has all the cool toys and his parents have credit card debt and it all get's repossessed that's kinda how I feel about now.

    I can't believe Pats fans are shaking in their boots because the Dolphins signed Calvin Pace. That's high comedy for ya.

    I don't think anyone is shaking in their boots, but he would've filled a nice hole for us. Hence the premise of the thread.

    Pace was a contract year 'wonder'. The Dolphins just dropped a ton of money on a big gamble.

    Re: Dolphins sign Calvin Pace

    Again, I don't think it's as big a gamble as with most contract year overachievers, given the new coaching staff and change of position.

    What's your excuse for his tenure under McGinnis?

    Neither McGinnis nor Green strike me as the same caliber as Wisenhunt. Plus, he was a DE during those years.

    Re: Dolphins sign Calvin Pace

    In other words, you don't have any real reason regarding McGinnis. That pretty much gets everything back to:


    Contract year wonder, it's a lot of money for a big gamble.


    Now, that doesn't mean he won't work out for whichever team signs him. It just means that he's a big money gamble.

    Re: Dolphins sign Calvin Pace

    Sure, if that's how you want to frame it, fine. Whatever floats your boat. But when a coach who has experience in a 3-4 system comes in, moves the guy to OLB, and all of a sudden the guy transforms into a different player... it could be money, it could not. My point is only that there are more variables at play here than usual with contract year overachievers. Thus: his performance is less likely to be directly attributable to $$ concerns.

    Re: Dolphins sign Calvin Pace

    We're better off anyway. Do we really want the Pats to chase a guy who says "Hmm...I think I'll take meetings a couple of AFC East teams, and they'll be the ones that finished last and second to last?"

    You'd think that after years of losing in Arizona, he'd consider winning to be a little more important than money. Guess not.

    Re: Dolphins sign Calvin Pace

    I agree with you there....I DESPISE Man-gina with black hatred..........I only hate the tuna....;) But I do respect Parcells.....He is a very good coach and will help them down there........unfortuneatly for them, he will pull out of town in the middle of the night and leave everything in an unraveled mess....
