Running Up To The Minute Free Agent News


This will serve as our running free agent thread.  I will move this to the “Popular” column only in the event of major Miami Dolphins news or around 7:00 PM this evening.  We will continue our free agency coverage throughout the evening here as well as from 8 to 10 on FinsRadio.net.  Information on that show will come later this afternoon/evening. In the meantime, keep this page open and refresh often as we keep you updated on the free agency that starts today at 4.  In addition, all Miami Dolphins related breaking news will appear on our “HUB” to the right.  Look for the “Dolphins logo” to see the Dolphins breaking news.

DOLPHINS – Have re-signed OT Lydon Murtha to a one year contract worth under just 2 million dollars.  The Dolphins needed to keep depth and Murtha is a player who if can stay healthy could press for starting time.

Dolphins News:  The Dolphins declined to tender restricted free agent running back Lex Hilliard.  He will not be free to sign anywhere with no compensation to Miami.  A report from a Denver radio station stated that the Manning price-tag is around 70 million for three seasons.

To kick things off a couple of rumors and a signing.  First Marques Colston signed a five year 40 million dollar deal to stay with the Saints.  The Cowboys cut nine year veteran CB Terence Newman, and a report today says that the New England Patriots may go hard after LB Mario Williams and WR Brandon Lloyd.  Lloyd could be the first free agent signed this afternoon.
