Joel Corry outlines how the Dolphins could go about matching the Bills five-year, $38 million sheet to TE Charles Clay.
- According to Corry, Miami would need to reduce DT Ndamukong Suh‘s 2016 cap figure by restructuring his contract.
- Corry mentions that they could create $18.18 million in cap space next year by converting $22.725 million of Suh’s $23.485 million 2016 base salary into signing bonus.
- The downside for the Dolphins, however, is that his would boost his future cap figures by $4.545 million, per Corry.
- In this scenario, Corry has Suh’s future cap figures as: $19.645M (2017), $26.645M (2018), $28.645M (2019), and $22.92M (2020).
- Rand Getlin reports that the Eagles will put USC WR Nelson Algholor through a workout later this week.
New Raiders RB Trent Richardson referred to his time with the Colts as a “bad marriage.”
“I just think it was a bad marriage,” Richardson said, via Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area Newspaper Group. “I don’t blame the O-line or anybody else. I can still get better and I’m going to be working my tail off and trying to be the best running back now.”
“That system just didn’t fit me,” Richardson added. “Looking back, that’s a taste you never want to get in your mouth again. Hopefully this is my last stop, and I’m going to do whatever I can to make this my last stop.”
- Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports mentions that no one around the league is buying the idea of the Redskins draft Oregon QB Marcus Mariota at No. 5 overall.
- According to Robinson, the belief right now is that Washington is trying to promote trade talks that could result in someone moving up into the top five and in turn pushing another player down the board.
- Dane Brugler reports that the Saints have shown “considerable” interest in receiver prospects OSU’s Devin Smith and Auburn’s Sammie Coates.
- Brugler adds that both players could be second-round targets for the Saints.
