Both are his clients, both are restricted free agents.
The Dolphins have the right to match an offer to either player or get compensation if they decline. The Dolphins would get a fifth-round pick for not matching an offer to Freeman, a seventh-rounder for Haley.
And, let's be honest, there isn't much difference — if any — between the play of any of those guys. So keeping Haley is a no-brainer.
When it comes to Freeman, quite frankly we'd have no problems with the Dolphins letting him go. He's been with the team three years, had his big chance last year as a starter, and was very disappointing.
Coach Dave Wannstedt said after the season the team might have assumed too many things with Freeman. Well, the guy's been around three years. It's not as though he was a rookie. The Dolphins know what they've got in Freeman by now, and a fifth-round draft pick might not be a bad trade right now.
