About Iran doesn't commune stores just not true this does not mean it nobody ESPN's James walker covers the Miami Dolphins Prius into a six time man of the appreciate it. Hey no problem got going on. Not much man not by itself the big news overnight the dolphins go on the trip for this this will his rookie tell us about this deal. Solid player and you know the rams front seven what a lot of people don't know even know they've been a bad team myth or seven on defense has been. Pretty solid over the last years and William Hayes has been one of those players that. A lot like aren't big rats where he had a guy's gonna put up big numbers. But you know he's sort of a solid you know did you tackle spot back all the rallies that you the most better aren't very good against the run up the reputation that that he had he took very good. Run stopping defensive end and as you guys know what the pulpit run defense of the past couple years they need someone to be able to set the edge especially. You know NIC that the man rotation because it got no camera we can get up there needs. Audrey grant you know because have a weakness he didn't do very well. Stop the run last year they got a guy this may not get double digit sack but at least. It's that they had to stop the run. Started James walker covered the dolphins for ESPN. Now brought back getting the sign of the tight end thing all kind of shook out his stage two is Thomas to became official. But Abbott deal since it a comeback was that was not a surprise that they didn't bring him back and then the Fasano backup would you make of that. Yeah I think with a mild surprise because that you know from what I would hold really as part about a month ago. Beyond them with a month that the three guys that they've really targeted it in how that really went back Kenny stills with a obviously number one guy. There's been talk and his reputation for a long time to get that deal done Andre branch with the the second guys beyond template with a third guy. But the dolphins know better than anybody how much value. Yup that was brought to them but. It was a question of whether the rest of the league knew you know could if you look at stats to look at numbers you know he doesn't really standout when that seat when he when he entered creative people it. I don't watch golf in games you know regularly you know Dion and he blocked it goes there. You know offered to tackle you you know you borderline elite level blocker he's probably. A little better bit a little better receiving identity gets credit for both Chicago Bears came up you know game big money. Other dolphins were willing to pay him that much they had a backup plan. And it not only did make as good repeating I did this it was clear. In the hunt them but he definitely hi Libby blogger and it'll be able to contribute to my car running. Is this one of those situations where the dolphins after he signed we've. Chicago it. I didn't know anybody else with which ultimately from a couple of years rather like well no you know a lot of teams looking at Charles could that be surprised like the coliseum in a note of buffalo. My question is. Could Jarvis if you go to the same thing because I've had this argument. That look at these slot guy. Yes it in a note just like I came here as they see. It be. I. I disagree but the price competition for another day in this case I mean in general. Term I I do agree with you but in this case you'd disagree because. Dartmouth is just a different a different guy different beast. But it's certainly in terms of what what you're asking yes I I do think the dolphins were surprised because you know it. Gordon frisbee it's not like you guys have been reality is here and admits some of that. Wanted to cover the increased salary cap young guy like Mike Glenn didn't targeting command almost an art courses funny because that the salary cap. You're going to go high and it and it seemed as though my cap. So you're gonna have gotten cry like you know sympathetic to figure contracts necessary. Police I think they weren't out of the pride that they were you know that that was higher than what they were willing to pay won't. Probably not that you don't adopt this credit they did have a backup plan to have Anthony Fasano from what apple they they can have a little bit around both of three million dollars you know within that are. I would it is that expensive book or back its finest best the got it blocked as well as he does. I played her in the dark wintry now at different situation meet Burkle. I'd be surprised that the to get to read because that these that they don't. Give him a big money extension this year out they're kind of being against themselves so there's no other team at this point thinking got it up bit. You know indicated to a bidding war but I think. The weight especially with the way the careless shots knows who waits for care Kenny stills and RD branch I mean they've really been retaining their own players they've really been somewhat. Patrick can repeat that they've value and so I think. Dartmouth Landry is gonna get a contract that its market value did not affiliate what was your value foot would fill an alliance I got it that they put that. Author numbers and the number one received. I think we wanted to things that. You know if your dog's name really looks good. With what the management is doing with their players it is you know what they do it would Rashad Jones he told them last year vote. Just hang witness come into camp we're gonna take care and they can take that same approach. With Jarvis it and say look we take care of archives and I think this is. Boom. That hasn't been seen with this or this thing. Players are re start the field. Well it. We're. Mr. Ross's doing as far as trying to keep Iran. Yeah and winning helps you know what you have to win the standard key overall from management to the players and back. You know the management that kind of synergy sort of builds people wanna be part of its and we see people wanna be part. You know Ricky that made the playoffs and exciting as going into next year you know with expectations so I think it does help. Both the management style where they can say okay well. You know they didn't have struggled with being gay but he did you know if you have a critically needed them they sort of follow when their work. An awful you know what we're trying to you know knowing that hey that it would be a bit. But he did well they still played I think yet there are a lot of energy good energy going on on the Internet building but we don't like that I've done it started Landry if they don't take care in this call they can't have a plan for 890000. On you know the last few of his rookie contract I mean. If anyone is outlook on this contract yes you know when the Miami Dolphins and it did BenJarvus Landry so. I'd be surprised I think it was the the bad message they don't take care of thought I fully expect them. You know to take care. Agreed the he has a way out before that that contract. What the next position and it would you go linebacker. Which you go. Off the line depth because you got you know you can read Tom's allowed you might be some open side. You're not really sure with top without penalties gonna be. Or would you go second year. While I would get legal line backer you know that was the number one need that's for the team come in and maybe they would thirtieth against the run we don't even though they haven't sooner defense of life. Right at second level was just didn't either publicly just weren't there you go with a holes where there. You know alive back at work or abilities to they need at least two. Starters there's so. I fully expect him to you know address deposition early in the draft. But when you need to starters you're probably gonna have to get the guys in their you know dirt to create a period as well now more than it is visiting the facility today entry got. You know are aware of that you know veteran linebacker got it you know physical from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not very could've tapped covered for safe but. You don't got it they can be a stop grabbing up kind of what they need they have right you know keep Kiko Alonso a guy goes silent a silent if you don't think they don't necessarily have a guy. Thinking kidnap holding and you know with a place like legally or you know back yard they'll have bad. Go head to head against those guys so you know Yad I think I think that's part of the biggest they've what you could say either way you could say. I could make a case regard I mean it was their starting guards on the team right now with without without regards possible. Move it left tackle mean NAFTA the big question them as well so. I would say either of those two. To position but the meat linebackers is the bigger geek that they could feel the holy god it's a little easier that you can edit and middle linebacker or outside linebacker depending on what they do we keep cool month. Just what is what was the move or the guy that got away that really I guess changed there. Philosophy of really want to take care of their own was the fact that Olivier Vernon got all that money in the off season. Or did that to one of those guys have a year last year that said ma'am really just can't let that happen again. Yes I don't know there was one guy you know per day you know you could bring the case flat here you know with Olivier Bernard ahead Lamar Miller you know Miller with a guy that. You know they had their price tag on but you know he would he would. Too expensive for for them and and that happens a lot for the gulf of its other these. I don't think they just went to the ought to be you know like look you know they won ten games and got there to get paid when he went in games last the year before that they won six games so it's a little different. We Olivier Vernon Afghan war you don't expect millions of dollars and in the only wants to game to Lamar Miller after the big money. Detailing what became I just think that bitter he changed win you know Adam gave came in. Change the culture implemented a system now he knows what kind of guys that their systems so Adam gate has. You know a strong voice and are they okay you know. This got hit my system you know that make sure we keep himself I think more so it was the wind and make the play off. That's what it's changed everybody's perspective and up front office that OK we value our guys they did their job on the field. Found the front office have to do their job and take care players while. Still sort of maintain the salary cap integrated network salary cap and our mission that before but I don't want to overstate that I think that's helped so many teams. You know sort of by you know do these kind of things where these big contract you know they they sort of look bigger than what they aren't what they have been in years past but. Presented flat would be increased salary cap be it doesn't really make as big a bit you know Andy used to with the numbers and it's only gonna go up for the next couple years as well. James UC more situations and an FO. Kind of like what they do the best of both teams taken on contract like Cleveland Browns to get draft picks. That would unique about it. As I hadn't seen much of that before and I've you know the problem a little bit different organizations artists talk bad about your old seat. Only right I used to cover the browser as well. But you know they're they're they're doing what they've outside the box but it just try to get as many draft takes. You know as possible and then you don't see see what happens from there. Complex. I really don't see that as a big trend repeatedly taken on you know because I don't play that don't performances not the NFL way. That's the way you do if you have a big contract that it's it's sort of with the players from all of you to try to cut him. We try to get rid of you don't really take those kind of contract thought both personally I don't yet at the trade but I'd be curious to hear your take them. Well I think it would look. They don't have a quarterback. If it works out five if not they can cut a map the next year ending at 616 million or seventy million read up. To go get whom they want so it's a move its alarms or who it's not a short term room. And they get the second round pick so what are the problems I have with it. Say the browns over the with the dolphins in the past. It's not that they get the budget draft picks the players it's like they'll strip it's exactly. If you've got to make bad decisions get more pixel at least you can't make a whole bunch of bad decisions like. The Bill Belichick theory because everybody thinks Bill Belichick is great. Draft him plight he really is it but they have so many picks yet no more room for error. Can't support. It's that time. Thanks that time man and enjoy a jury coverage of the dogs and he's also fantastic response let's. Gas Tulsa buzzed through the last two weeks meant to basically gives it that big a job. And thank you cry out. I appreciate it got a comeback by this theory you know you know I'd so is opened the front of you want. I appreciate gut it out there aren't James walker covers the dollars for ESPN.
