Dolphins interest: Word is the Dolphins are very much interested in Kerry Collins, but that Collins wants to be able to fight for a starting job, which won't happen in Miami. The Dolphins also might consider former Detroit starter Joey Harrington, but probably will balk at sending the Lions a draft pick in return considering they know Harrington will be released no later than June. As for the other guys on this list, Tommy Maddox's name has been brought up because of his familiarity with Mike Mularkey, but the truth is Maddox was nothing short of brutal as a backup for the Steelers last season.
Dolphins interest: The Dolphins won't do anything here until they find out what Ricky Williams' status for 2006 will be. Sammy Morris very well might wind up back in Miami now that Maurice Morris has re-signed with Seattle.
Dolphins interest: The Dolphins are set at this position after the signing of free agent Fred Beasley.
Az-Zahir Hakim (PR)
Michael Lewis (KR/PR)
Troy Walters (PR)
Dolphins interest: The Dolphins really could use another good wide receiver, but there's little on this list worthy of consideration.
Victor Riley (OT)
Brad Hopkins (LT)
Dolphins interest: The Dolphins reportedly had Pearson in for a visit, so they're obviously interested in the former Florida Gators standout. Steussie and Hopkins both are guys who once were solid but are part their prime.
Dolphins interest: The two studs at this position -- LeCharles Bentley and Kevin Mawae already are off the market.
Dolphins interest: With reports of the Dolphins asking Olindo Mare to take a pay cut and the visit by Mike Vanderjagt, we're left to wonder if Nick Saban actually might sign one of those two guys and let Mare go.
Dolphins interest: None. Donnie Jones is a keeper.
Dolphins interest: The one name here is Adams, who already has visited the Dolphins. We're thinking if financial considerations can be worked out, Adams could replace Keith Traylor at nose tackle.
Gary Walker (DT in 4-3)
Dolphins interest: Probably none. The Dolphins are pretty set at this spot.
Nick Griesen (WLB)
Dolphins interest: None of those guys are likely to raise much interest from Miami.
LaVar Arrington (WLB)
Na'il Diggs (WLB/SLB)
Jamie Sharper (WLB/SLB)
Tommy Polley (WLB)
Chad Brown (SLB/WLB)
Jamie Winborn (SLB)
Peter Boulware (SLB)
Keith Newman (SLB)
Barrett Green (WLB)
Brandon Short (SLB, WLB)
Junior Seau (WLB)
Warrick Holdman (WLB)
Keith Adams (WLB)
Dolphins interest: The guy here obviously is Arrington, who price tag will need to come down before he gets signed by ANYBODY. He obviously would be a great addition to the Dolphins defense. Beyond Arrington, there doesn't appear to be a difference-maker in the bunch.
Dolphins interest: At the right price, there are several quality players here, namely Woodson and Law. Plummer has battled injuries in recent years, but he's a good corner who could be had at a decent price.
Dolphins interest: Interesting that two of the guys on this list were starters for the Dolphins last season -- Jones and Schulters. The Dolphins have shown no inclination to try to re-sign either. It's a rather lackluster group, really.
