UPDATE 39:  According to local reports the Dolphins still have between 18 and 20 million.  Around 5 million will be needed for rookies and the Dolphins can also make some roster moves to free additional space if needed.

UPDATE 38:  The Dolphins have released LB Kevin Burnett.  

UPDATE 37:  Dolphins “tweeted” “What a day…More To Come”  Likely it for the night although today’s deals have yet to be officially announced.

UPDATE 36:  Wheeler contract reportedly 13 mill guaranteed on a 25 million five year deal.

UPDATE 35:  Dolphins Sign LB Phillip Wheeler.  Kevin Burnett likely gone

UPDATE 34:  Wallace deal reportedly now 30 mill guaranted on a five year 60 not 65 million dollar deal.  Look for this to be heavily backloaded with that large of a signing bonus.

UPDATE 33:  Dolphins showing interest in TE Brandon Meyers

UPDATE 32:  Raiders announced they released WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, DB Michael Huff and DE David Tollefson; and re-signed DB Phillip Adams.

UPDATE 31:  Dolphins will bring in LB Phillip Wheeler tomorrow for a workout

UPDATE 30:  As of 20 minutes ago, the deal for Wallace has not been finalized.  Agreed upon but minor language remains.

UPDATE 29:  Antoine Winfield released by Vikings to save cap room.

UPDATE 28:  Jake Long is seeing his option dwindle.  Chicago went with someone else and Rams may not have money.

UPDATE 27:  Karlos Dansby Released

UPDATE 26:  Jared Cook officially signs with the St. Louis Rams.

UPDATE 25:  Darrel Revis trade is still ongoing.  Possibly out of AFC entirely as Tampa looks like a player.

UPDATE 23:  Ryan Mallett of New England is getting some love from Tampa and Cleveland but no word if Pats want to trade.

UPDATE 22:  Ellerbe deal is 5 years for 35 million.  Average of 7 per year but base numbers and guaranteed dollars not known.
