Cornerback Sam Madison's career with the Dolphins has ended as he agreed to terms with the New York Giants today.

Madison agreed to a four-year deal that includes a $2 million signing bonus. His annual base salaries are $900,000 in 2006, $1.2 million in 2007, $1.5 million in 2008 and $1.8 million in 2009.

Madison can also make an additional $250,000 each of those seasons for collecting four interceptions per year.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus declined to confirm the salary figures but spoke about Madison's impending career change.

''He's happy,'' said Rosenhaus, who represents Madison. ``He's sorry to leave the Dolphins but he's going to a great situation with the Giants. They have a winning team and a winning tradition.''

Madison was released by the Dolphins last week in a move to save space under the salary cap. http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/sports/14068023.htm

Sorry to hear that. Wonder if we made any overtures to him? Dollar amounts don't look out of wack.

I thought Madison was considered one of the better CB's? Did he take a big turn downard in the last 2 years? That seems like pretty good value money-wise.
