Non-Dolphins Free Agents

Free Agents Signed from other NFL teams

These players have either already signed with the Dolphins or have agreed to a deal. They all played during the 2005 season for some other NFL team.

* Karlos Dansby [Open in Separate Window]

Karlos Dansby

Position: ILB
Height/Weight: 6-4/250
Born: 11/3/1981
College: Auburn
NFL: 7th Season
Previous Team: Cardinals

7 Mar 2010: Karlos Dansby has agreed to terms with the Dolphins on a 5 year, $43 million contract. Dansby is generally regarded to be one of the best linebackers available in free agency this year. With the departure of Akin Ayodele and the inconsistent play of Reggie Torbor and Channing Crowder last year, the Dolphins are very thin at inside linebacker and went after the best one they could find. He has been a good, solid player for the Cardinals and was given the franchise tag by Arizona for each of the last two years, but he has never made the Pro-Bowl and has been accused of having a questionable work ethic.

Projected Role: Starting Inside Linebacker

Free Agents Visiting With Dolphins

The following players have visited or talked to the Dolphins, but have not signed a contract as yet.

-  Ryan Clark [Open in Separate Window]

Position: FS
Height/Weight: 5-11/205
Born: 10/12/1979
College: Louisiana State
NFL: 9th Season

8 Mar 2010: Re-signed with the Steelers. The Dolphins were hoping to be able to sign Clark to take the place of Gibril Wilson after they lost out on the bidding for Antrel Rolle. The Dolphins wined and dined Clark on Sunday evening and Monday, but Clark apparently decided that he would rather stay in Pittsburgh and signed a 4 year deal with the Steelers on Monday evening, following his visit with the Dolphins.

Dolphins Unrestricted Free Agents:

An unrestricted free agent may sign with any team in the NFL, unless the Dolphins place the franchise tag on them. When considering the possibility that they may re-sign with the Dolphins, there are two things to consider: Their value to the Dolphins and their potential value to another team.

Jason Taylor [Open in Separate Window]

Position: OLB
Height/Weight: 6-6/255
Born: 9/1/1974
College: Akron
NFL: 13th Season

5 Mar 2010: Declared an unrestricted free agent.

Signing possibility: Medium

Jason Ferguson [Open in Separate Window]

Position: NT
Height/Weight: 6-3/310
Born: 11/28/1974
College: Georgia
NFL: 13th Season

5 Mar 2010: Declared an unrestricted free agent. Ferguson has been suspended for 8 games in the 2010 season for violating the league's drug policy on performance enhancing drugs. This, of course, dramatically lessens the possibility that the Dolphins will re-sign him.

Signing possibility: Medium

Dolphins Restricted Free Agents:

Restricted free agents must be offered a contract by the Dolphins in order to retain their rights. If the Dolphins do offer them a contract, any team trying to sign them away from the Dolphins must offer a bigger contract and if the player signs with that team, must provide compensation to the Dolphins in the form of a draft pick. Also, the Dolphins have the right to match any offer made to their restricted free agents and keep them.
