Saturday Update

[Update: 8:42 P.M.] SS Cameron Worrell's two-year contract with the Dolphins is worth $2 million and includes a $285,000 signing bonus. [End Update]

- Confirming previous reports, the Dolphins have indeed offered a contract to WR Donte' Stallworth. Although the contract offer was not appealing enough to immediately accept, the two sides are expected to continue negotiations throughout the weekend. It appears at this point that Miami is Stallworth's top choice.

- It is believed that Miami has already paid K Olindo Mare the $250,000 bonus that he was due. If true, that probably means that the team is pushing hard to trade him and get some value in return rather than simply cutting him. The team hopes to complete a trade before the April 13 minicamp, where Jay Feely will make his Dolphins debut. If Mare is not traded by that time, the team could still prohibit him from participating in the camp and other offseason activities.

- Although it was first reported that K Jay Feely's contract is worth $6 million, it is actually closer to $5 million, according to NFL Players Association records. His base salaries will be as follows: 2007 - $600,000; 2008 - $850,000; 2009 - $1.075 million.
