With the lockout now mostly in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start looking ahead and while there has been a ton of conversation about the players the Fins may go after in free agency, we’ve spent a little less time discussing the guys that could be leaving Miami.
The NFL released the official list of free agents this evening, and the Dolphins have 11 total free agents in three different categories.
The Miami Dolphins are together this weekend for FinsWeekend as current players, coaches, alumni and fans will all help raise a lot of dollars for the Miami Dolphins Foundation. There will be plenty of stories about who caught the biggest fish, or who hit the longest drive during each of the events. I’m not sure if the stories will be able to live up to reality, but one thing is certain, my money is on the golf group that gets quarterback Chad Henne!
Join the Finsiders today from 4-7pm for Dolphins Monday as we break down yesterday’s game. This afternoon we will be joined by Defensive End Tony McDaniel, Special Teams captain Patrick Cobbs, Tight End Mickey Shuler Jr. as well as Defensive Co-captain and safety Yeremiah Bell. We will also speak to Dolphins Head Coach Tony Sparano in studio at 6pm.
You can join Jesse Agler along with former Dolphins Sam Madison and Keith Sims as they co-host today’s show. Watch and listen on 940 WINZ or THEFINSIDERS.COM as we discuss the game with legendary coach Don Shula at 4:05.

Coming off a much needed win in Green Bay, the Dolphins are back and stronger than ever! The Finsiders salute their big “W’ with a big show! Join us this afternoon as we are joined in studio by four of the Miami Dolphins’ brightest stars. Chad Henne, Channing Crowder, Yeremiah Bell, and Patrick Cobbs will be chatting with us about this past game, what it feels like to get their feet under them after the bye week, and how they will prepare for the Steelers this Sunday.
After practice today, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano met with the media and had a quick chat about the upcoming game against the Packers. As previously reported, CB Benny Sapp was absent from practice today and the coach said that it was an excused absence and not related to football. The coach also offered up that DE Tony McDaniel would be in the same situation tomorrow.
