UPDATE: All three contracts were for 1 year. The Dolphins held “exclusive” rights to each.
The Miami Dolphins may not be making waves in the free agent market but at least they are taking care of business. Today the Phins announced that they had signed 3 players to extensions who were restricted free agents.
Leading the list is undrafted Hawaii receiver Davone Bess. Bess has been a solid slot receiver since coming to Miami 2 years ago. TE Joey Haynos, a Phinphanatic favorite, was also re-signed. Haynos started several games last year in the abcense of Anthony Fasano and improved significantly over the course of the season.
Rounding out the three, kicker Dan Carpenter was also re-inked. Carp started his off-season on the AFC Pro-Bowl squad after being named an alternate. Tersm of all 3 deals are not immediately known.
Joey Porter has latched on to the Arizona Cardinals signing a 3 year deal potentially worth over 17 million. He also has apparently been told that he will be an every down LB. A lot of money to throw at a guy who has struggled with staying healthy and nice.
