Phins Lose Clark Re-signs With Pitt


Safety Ryan Clark who was set to sign with the Phins, used his leverage to get a new deal with the Steelers. It has been reported that the Dolphins offered a good amount of money to Clark but it is said that he just wanted to return home to the Steelers and do what was best for his family.

The Phins will now look elsewhere for the teams vacancy. Some notable safeties that are free agents are OJ Atogwe (RFA), Antoine Bethea (RFA) and Darren Sharper (UFA). If the Dolphins would like to get their safety in the draft they might look at a couple in the first 3 rounds: Eric Berry (Tennessee)  if he Drops, Earl Thomas (Texas),  Nate Allen (South Florida), Morgan Burnett (Georgia Tech),  Reshad Jones (Georgia), or Major Wright (Florida)

    WOW..what a jerk. He had us going when he mentioned, “..this seems like a good spot. So Iā€™m praying (it) goes well.ā€ At least after his NFL career he could always turn to acting. Geez

    While that sucks, it comes as no big loss as he was 30 with some serious health issues. Besides didn’t we draft a safety last year in Chris Clemons? Or has he been considered a bust already after one year?

    FYI – Pitt signed him for a 4 year deal. Miami most likely offered him a 2. I don’t blame him for staying in Pitt nor do I blame the Phins for only offering a one or two year deal (which is a guess on my part but makes sense based on the guy’s age and health problems)

    We need to go after Oshiomogho Atogwe or Darren Sharper.They can cause big plays for our team which is one of the things we need most. Id say Atogwe because he is younger than Sharper. but you could also look at it like we need more veterans.

    As far as the draft goes remember the name Chris Cook. They fell in love with him at the Senior Bowl. He played both CB and S at Virginia and at 6’2″, 212lbs and ran a 4.46 at the combine. Most experts think he will be a saftey in the NFL because he is very physical. Look for him to be on Miami’s board somewhere between rounds 3-5.
