2012 Free Agent Corner Backs

Heyyy SHOUT-sters and Dolphin-Addicts ; ) ..

At the end of the 2011-2012 season the Miami Dolphins have only four CBs under contract. Sean Smith and Vontae Davis are due to become FAs in 2013, and Nolan Carroll and Jimmy Wilson are the only others we have under contract for the 2012 season..

On January 30th the Dolphin signed CBs Vincent Agnew, Marcus X. Brown and Jonathan Wade to future contracts.

This past Thursday the team announced the signing of defensive back Quinton Lawrence, who the Kansas City Chiefs selected in the sixth-round of the 2009 draft.

Here's a look at our Dolphins current corner-back lineup:
Jonathan Wade 27 5-11 200 5 Tennessee 4.36 forty yard dash time
Vince Agnew 24 5-10 192 1 Central Michigan 4.40 forty
Marcus Brown 25 6-1 190 2 Arkansas State 4.42 forty
Quinton Lawrence 27 6-0 184 4 McNeese State 4.40 forty
Nolan Carroll 25 6-1 202 2 Maryland
Vontae Davis 25 5-11 203 3 Illinois
Sean Smith 25 6-3 214 3 Utah
Jimmy Wilson 25 5-10 185 1 Montana

So, with that said your Dolphins are pretty well off at the CB position for 2012.

However, there's always room for upgrades and preparations for the likely loss of one or the other starting CBs in 2013.

RFA = Restricted Free Agent (requires draft pick to attain)
LCB = Left side CB

THANX for an Open-Minded read, and we look forward to your suggestions :) !!
