    Jeff Zgonina

    the Dolphins are close to a deal to trade defensive tackle Jeff Zgonina to the St. Louis Rams for a late-round draft pick. Zgnonia played six seasons for the Rams before signing with the Dolphins as a free agent in 2003.

    I hope the Rams do sign Edwards and trade (5th round or later) a pick for Zgonina.

    Re: Jeff Zgonina

    I'm not sure I'd give up a fifth rounder for Zgonina. They guy's, what, 35? I'd rather try and get more longevity and production out of a rookie, but who knows if we could.

    Wow, its funny, but I didn't realize he was that old. Okay, no more than a sixth round pick for him.

    Re: Jeff Zgonina

    I am really excited about the new deal Faulk signed. It cleared 3mil in cap space instead of the 1.5mil that was earlier reported. If they can get Bruce to sign a similar contract the Rams should be setting pretty for free agency. Should be able to get some help on D hopefully. I am also encouraged about signing Edwards. So far this has been a good ofseason in my opinion. Wednesday can't get here fast enough for me.

    I think so. He was a great run stopper when he was here, but of course, he is not a long-term answer. However, if Kennedy keeps improving, Z doesn't have to be a long-term answer.

    Of course, but I guess I subscribe to the notion that with the fourth or fifth round pick we'd give up, we might be able to find a real diamond in the rough player that could surpass both in the long term future.

    I wouldn't give up a 4th or 5th for him. 6th, yea, but not 5th and certainly not 4th.

    Re: Jeff Zgonina

    I would gladly give a 5th round pick for Zgonina. He is a solid run stuffer, which is needed, and you know what you are getting, vs. a 5th rounder which is a long shot. Need help now.

    Re: Jeff Zgonina

    What's the cap situation for Damione Lewis? If we cut him will that free up any cap space? I'm sure Lovie would love to have him in Chicago.

    Re: Jeff Zgonina

    First the FO loses its best DT while keeping the duds. Now that Z is near the end of his career, the FO wants him back.

    Why is our FO so bizarro when it comes to defensive tackles? Ahh, that's it! Bizzaro Tackle is our coach and he is misleading the FO.

    Yeppers, you heard it from me first... another mediocre season now being served.
