Dolphins meet with Dontari Poe for nine hours

Getty Images

Free agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe’s meeting with the Dolphins has concluded, the team announced.

Poe has had plenty of interest, but still remains without a contract. The Miami Herald reported that Poe left the Dolphins’ facility after a Wednesday meeting that lasted around nine hours.

Poe is used to this by now. He had previously visited the Colts, Jaguars and the Falcons, and it’s been reported that the Raiders are interested, too.

The Chiefs have already replaced Poe by signing Bennie Logan. Poe, 26 could end up signing a one-year contract and hitting the market again next season. He’s been a starter for all five of his seasons with the Chiefs but his statistical production has dropped off significantly over the last two seasons.

    9 hours? For a nose tackle? Were they talking about horoscopes and about what happens in the afterlife? Did they make a camp fire to tell ghost stories for the last 3 hours?

    If Poe isn’t satisfied with any of the multi-year deals he is offered, there is one team that would be the best landing spot for a one year, prove it deal. A big, fat, Superbowl ring would like quite nice going into negotiations next year, a la Marty Bennett. Foxboro would be the place.

    Poe was locked in and not allowed to use the washroom without signing the contract. Eventually he was able to escape through a heating duct in the ceiling.

    What could you possibly talk about for nine hours with a defensive tackle?

    Theater. Pure theater.

    Omar Kelly said this guy has serious back problems and that why KC doesn’t want him anymore. He might be trying to get a huge guarantee money deal knowing that he won’t be able to play long. This might be the reason nobody has signed him yet despite the number of teams he visited. Teams smartly don’t want to pay him what he is asking because of his back issues.

    I wouldn’t even want to spend 9 hours with Edgar Allen Poe, never mind Dontari Poe.

    Dontari Poe is an extremely hard worker and Never griped about his back issues. Another thing he did was play every defensive snap. Find another NT that did that in all 16 games. Sure, he has had some back issues but he will always give 110%.

    The Chiefs Love this young man and asked that Poe’s agent to stay connected to their GM.

    I hoped he would have been franchised but Berry’s deal ate too much of their

    “what could you talk about with a DT for 9 hours” Dang guys, i mean he is human and he has been alive for 26 years. there is a lot that can be talked about other than football. smh

    Pretty simple. Wasnt leaving until he had breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    They met for 9 hours and had 5 meals. I kid, I kid. KC loves Poe. His price was clearly higher than what Dorsey thought made sense of us and our cap situation, but best of luck to you, Poe (except when you play the Chiefs – don’t be throwing any TDs against us, ya here?!?!).

    9 hours holy crap I hope they atleast gave him a few smoke breaks

  12. charger383 says: Mar 15, 2017 8:25 PM

    9 hours, you eat for 9 hours, you eatup all the food. you leave now! screamed the excited owner of the all you can eat buffet

    He thought Grigson (Gosder Cherilus, Laron Landry, Arthur Jones, etc) was still the GM in Indy, aka ” Easy Money.”

  14. bsizemore68 says: Mar 15, 2017 9:00 PM

    Perhaps they gave him a tour of South Beach in March, and of course they talk about no state income tax. And of course they gave him a very long MRI on his bad back. Bill

  15. tarniman says: Mar 15, 2017 9:12 PM

    what they do? made him do a work out? and then took him to one of Miami’s finer strip clubs and gaved him 5000 one dollar bills?

  16. loudpackmatt says: Mar 15, 2017 9:16 PM

    what did they do play a power point and wait a hour to change each slide?

  17. walker1191 says: Mar 15, 2017 9:52 PM

    Every one of these teams wants him, but only on a short term or incentive-laden deal. I guess he’ll keep touring the country until he can find someone who wants to give him 3 or 4 years with a heft guarantee.

  18. arvinkp says: Mar 15, 2017 10:00 PM

    Must’ve interviewed him at a buffet.

    Omar Kelly is a moron.

    I am sure his asking price is steep and therefore I am glad he “escaped” the Dolphins. This would not be a good signing… this is a typical thing of the past Miami Front Office. Overpay for an aging player. No thanks, look at Hankins.

    Was this an interrogation or an interview?!?!?

  22. dreadnok89 says: Mar 16, 2017 5:04 AM

    poe is extremely athletic for his size. better than some guys half his weight

  23. harrietknutczak says: Mar 16, 2017 7:17 AM

    The real plan is for SF to sign him as their starting QB.

  24. whybotherifeverythinggetscensored says: Mar 16, 2017 8:23 AM

    With all the interest and no contract, it sounds like Poe is over-valuing himself, and not taking into account how teams look at his injury last year.

  25. tommynatorii says: Mar 16, 2017 9:52 AM

    His spo is already filled? No fall back Poe, better sign with the up and coming juggernaut-The Miami Dolphins. You know you want to work next to Suh.
