Despite suspension, Dolphins bring back Jason Ferguson

It recently was reported that Dolphins defensive tackle Jason Ferguson will be suspended for the first eight games of the 2010 season.

Despite the pending suspension, the Dolphins have re-signed the veteran nose tackle.

If the suspension sticks, Ferguson will be permitted to participate in all offseason workouts, training camp, and the preseason.  After the final preseason game, he’ll be gone for eight weeks.

The 13-year veteran has spent the last two years with the Dolphins.

    I can’t imagine what Miami’s Run-D will be like with out him for 8 games unless they trade/draft someone big n’ sexy

    Well, that makes sense. Jamal Williams or, eh, a guy with a wrecked leg who’s suspended for the first half of the season.
    In other news, the Dolphins are scrambling to identify the worst possible WR available. They are nearing the end of their search, having narrowed it down to Roosevelt Franklin or Ted Ginn, Jr. It is assumed that genetic testing currently being performed at the Dolphins Training Facility will show that the two are, in fact, the same person. At that time, the Front Office will high five each other because, well, Ted Ginn is already signed.
    In other, other news, the Dophins fail to find a replacement FS and so re-sign Gibril Wilson, giving him an additional $8 million signing bonus, effectively pre paying him $4 million per tackle he is expected to make in the 2010 season. In an incentive laden contract, he is given a half million dollar bonus for every touchdown he allows, with a maximum incentive of $10 million per season. The Dolphins expect him to reach said maximum incentive by halftime of the first game.

    They’ll probably appeal the ban against Ferguson, such as the Vikings did with the bans against the Williams Wall. It’s not a risky move at all, they won’t have given him a lot of guaranteed money. If he’s allowed to play – good, if he remains suspended they can cut him before the season starts.
    In addition, Ferguson is a good character to have around during offseason workouts. When he’s under contract he can use the team facilities to rehab from his quad injury.

    funny stuff vince…. problem is that us fin fans think there is some truth in there. dont get me started on jamar fletcher, eddie moore, yatil green or the rest of the bums

    I still would draft a first round NT or a replacement freesafety

  9. LewD says: Mar 9, 2010 8:48 PM

    he wouldn’t hold up for an entire season, so this works out perfectly … let him serve his time, get healthy and be ready for the second half of the season …

    I’m sure they know what they are doing, but this move is a bit odd. He is hurt and suspended. Oh well, I guess it is a bit early to get to concerned.

    they HAVE to bring Ferg back…. who else is going to play NT? Soliai’s not a permanent solution (although he is improving).
    I’d like to see us address this in the draft
