After signing Ellerbe, the Dolphins are releasing LB Karlos Dansby, who had 134 tackles last season

This draft is not strong at MLB, so he might be the best option in terms of talent. He's still young enough.

Ellerbe signed, and Dansby's contract was probably not something they wanted any longer.

What was Ellerbe's contract as opposed to Dansby's?

I can handle dishing out the cash for Dansby much more than a fa corner. They get overpaid every time. Would love dansby and a 1st/2nd round corner

Dansby would have cost the Fins ~ 8.5 million dollars on the cap this year -- cutting (after dead money) netted them half that. So they got Ellerbe super cheap. That is why. He can still play. Been one of my long time favs.

Vasquez,
Dansby,
Jennings,
Knighton,
DRC.

DONE.

I wanted Dansby when he was a free agent a few years ago.

The guy can still play at a pretty high level and would be LIGHT years better than what they've ran out there recently.

Pretty sure cutting Mays saves us at least half the cash it would cost us per year to get Dansby. What does cutting Joe save us? 4 MIL? Do that, cut a back up OL or something, maybe Caldwell and Boom -- you got a DAnBSy
