The Miami Dolphins have signed running back Mike Gillislee to a 4 year contract and signed TE Dion Sims as well.  The Dolphins have signed seven of their draft picks thus far but will likely face a battle with edge rusher Dion Jordan.  The Dolphins number one pick will likely hold out as long as he can as the two sides argue over the off-set language.  The Dolphins want to make sure Jordan gets the off-set language which would not pay him if he is released and signed by another team.  Jordan’s camp doesn’t want it.  Without it Jordan can be cut and still collect his salary from the Dolphins even if signed by another team.

For now the Dolphins and Jeff Ireland (more specifically Dawn Aponte) will get the rest of the draft picks under contract.  The Dolphins have about 7.5 million dollars allocated for the rookies.
