The Dolphins have been very active in free agency. And they’ve highlighted that activity with a Saturday press release announcing deals with 10 unrestricted free agents.

The 10 new Dolphins are safety Clayton Fejedelem (who previously played with the Bengals), guard Ereck Flowers (Washington), linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (Eagles), running back Jordan Howard (Eagles), cornerback Byron Jones (Cowboys), center Ted Karras (Patriots), defensive end Shaq Lawson (Bills), defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah (Chiefs), linebacker Elandon Roberts (Patriots) and linebacker Kyle Van Noy (Patriots).

The Dolphins also announced that safety Adrian Colbert has re-signed with the team.

With Tom Brady and other Patriots leaving New England (including three that signed with Miami), the Dolphins are adding pieces that they hope will vault them toward the top of the division. The Patriots have won the division for 11 straight seasons. And for 16 of the last 17 seasons. The Dolphins won the AFC East in 2008.

  1. Patriots have no cap space to add anyone, much less a veteran QB. Thus, this is the year that another AFC East team will win the Division. The Patriots will no make the playoffs and will be 3rd or 4th in their own Division.

  2. Not sure who they play outside the division, but they will lose to the Bills twice, Pats twice, and split with the Jets. So within the weak AFC East they will go 1 – 5 this year. If something would happen and Flores steps down, they have a chance of going 3 – 3.

  3. Patriots, the winners of 11 straight AFC East titles and 16 out of 17. The only year they did not earned the title they lost out to theDolphins in a tiebreaker With Brady lost to the season in week one.

    I wouldn’t count the Patriots out just yet.

  4. I am thinking the Dolphins are going to take the division this year. That would be the death blow for the dynasty.

  5. Actually, four of the Dolphins FA signings are former Patriots, one after first joining the Eagles.

    Belichick is the greatest coach ever for a reason
    —————————
    Belichick 0 – 2 vs Shula. But Belichick did kick his rear end in cheating scandals.

  7. If Pat don’t win AFC East it is likely to be the Bills. I’d say Fins are still a year or two away, at least, and who is their QB?

    **************************************************************************

    It is well known that Shula forced players to take pain killers (Painkillergate) and steroids (PEDgate) to stay on the field, and he intentionally removed tarps from the field before the AFC Championship Game against the Jets (MUDgate) to neutralize their speed, and it was a complete Soup Bowl where the Dolphins sloshed to a win. It was patently blatant, unfair, unsportsmanlike, cheating conduct. Of course he went on to lose the Super Bowl, and is known as the Coach That Kept Dan Marino From Winning The Super Bowl.

    Double Dealing Don used to run 15 men into the huddle and run four guys off just before the snap, even though the tactic was outlawed 10 years prior (FORMATIONgate)

    In addition, Shula headed up the very first cheating scandal of the AFC/NFC merger when he surreptitiously negotiated a contract with the expansion Dolphins while under contract with the Colts, which cost the Dolphins a #1 draft pick (TAMPERgate). Yup, Don was the first BIG CHEATER of the Modern NFL. Congrats Dirty Double Dealing Don Shula!

    As well as losing a #1 DRAFT PICK, the Dolphins 1972 Perfect Season* was permanently tainted and unofficially appended with an asterisks to indicate that the team cheated.

    Fun fact about the Dolphins’ Perfect Season*: in 1972 the Dolphins drew what most experts consider one of the NFL’s softest schedules ever. Their opponents had a winning percentage of just .357 (!) and they faced only 2 teams who ended the season over .500 while feasting on 9 teams who ended under .500.

    Shula*, of course, is remembered as one of the game’s most accomplished coaches. He holds numerous coaching records, including:

    Most losses by a head coach in the Super Bowl: 4, tied with Bud Grant (MIN), Marv Levy (BUF) and Dan Reeves (DEN).

    Longest amount of time to be shutout in a Super Bowl: his team didn’t score until there was only 3:19 left in Super Bowl III.

    Fewest points scored in a Super Bowl by any team: his team managed only one field goal in Super Bowl VI.

    Fewest points scored in the second half of a Super Bowl: his team put up 0 second half points an astonishing 4 times (Super Bowls VI, VII, XVII, and XIX). WOW.

    Meanwhile BB gets pummeled for thumbing his nose at a new rule that simply changed the video loaction, while ebgaged in a p*ssing contest with the Jets, and somehow he’s on the same level with DD SHula? Please…..nobody can touch “The Don” when it comes to organized crime in the NFL. Let’s not even get into the advantages he gave himself as the head of the Rules and Competition Committee. *CHEATER

  9. …and with the signing of 10 unrestricted free agents, and a number of key Patriot contributors to boot…….the Dolphins will probably achieve what they did last year.

    BOY WE GOT SOME DINOSAURS IN HERE lmao..Sounds like sour grapes about the perfect season but keep in mind this was accomplished without the free agency era that the Pats have benefited greatly from.. I would wager the payroll for the 72 fins was among the leagues lowest compared to other superbowl winners including the pats who’ve signed Moss,Dillon, Revis, Brown, etc in attempts to buy a superbowl..

    As far as cheating why is it anytime BS comes up or Rules get broken the patriots are getting caught? If everyone else is doing it then belichick is the dumbest head coach for allowing the recording to get caught twice.. More likely it sounds good to say everyone is doing it but believe it or not there are individuals and teams out there that play the game with integrity.
