Free Agency Updates; Potential Targets

With free agency only hours away, here are some updates concerning Miami's players:
  • If unable to re-sign LB Donnie Spragan, Miami is expected to pursue Minnesota OLB Napoleon Harris.
  • RG/C Seth McKinney and G Bennie Anderson were released today. Their release saved $5.3 million of cap room. WR Eric Kimble was also waived.
  • Joey Harrington will be released sometime today unless the team is able to trade him.
  • DE Kevin Carter was unable to reach an agreement with the team on a restructured contract and will be released Friday morning.
  • Both Cleo Lemon and Wes Welker's agents said they expect Miami to tender them offers. Lemon will likely receive a second-round tender.
  • LT Damion McIntosh, LG Kendyl Jacox, DT Keith Traylor, DE David Bowens, S Travares TIllman, DT Jeff Zgonina, and RB Sammy Morris are all expected to become free agents.
Look for Miami to pursue some of these players once free agency begins:
Offensive Guard - Kris Dielman, Eric Steinbach, Derrick Dockery, Cooper Carlisle
Offensive Tackle - Leonard Davis, Tony Pashos, Jon Stinchcomb
Fullback - Ovie Mughelli
Outside Linebacker - Napoleon Harris, Tully Banta-Cain, Cato June, Carlos Polk
