Schulters visits Dolphins, Law visits Jags
Former Titans safety Schulters will visit Dolphins

The Dolphins are considering bolstering their secondary by scheduling a free-agent visit today with safety Lance Schulters.
A seven-year NFL veteran, Schulters was released last week by Tennessee after being unable to agree upon a restructured contract. Schulters was slated to earn $2.75 million in 2005, which was too pricey for the Titans because of their salary cap problems.
"We wish him the best and realize he still has some quality football ahead of him," Tennessee General Manager Floyd Reese said in a team-released statement. "But we are committed to getting through our cap difficulties this year."
Schulters, 30, missed the final 13 games last season because of a left foot injury. Known for his aggressive style of play and locker-room leadership, Schulters was a three-year starter in Tennessee after signing a six-year, $20 million contract as an unrestricted free agent from San Francisco in 2002.
If signed by the Dolphins, Schulters would challenge Travares Tillman for the starting free safety position. Tillman, who has just seven NFL starts in five NFL seasons, underwent surgery last week for torn knee cartilage suffered in a recent minicamp. Tillman hopes he will be cleared to return for the start of training camp July 24.
Detroit, San Francisco, Atlanta and Green Bay also are thought to have expressed interest in Schulters.

Sounds like a plan to me.
