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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

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

    Theater. Pure theater.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. “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

  7. 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?!?!).

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

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. Omar Kelly said this guy has serious back problems and that why KC doesn’t want him anymore.
    Omar Kelly is a moron.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
