Polite gets extension

Just catching up with a bit of old news here, but FB Lousaka Polite signed a two-year extension earlier this week.

His deal had been set to expire after this coming season. He is now under contract with the Dolphins for the next three seasons, and his contract is worth $3.7 million over that time frame.

It's hard not to like this deal since Polite was so absolutely dominant in short-yardage situations, but his primary duties as a fullback - run-blocking - while sufficient, could use some work. Luckily for us, he will now have the luxury of being with the team over the offseason and I suspect he'll be even better this year.
