After a busy morning of making deals, the Dolphins signed free-agent QB Josh McCown, who started nine games for the Raiders last year, to a two-year deal, $6.25 million contract Friday afternoon. He could start in Week 1 for Miami.

Miami also signed former Jacksonville free-agent wide receiver Ernest Wilford to a four-year, $13 million contract that included a $6 million signing bonus and another $1 million escalator.

The Miami Dolphins stormed out of the free-agent gate early Friday, adding yet another young player. The Dolphins reached agreement with former Tennessee defensive tackle Randy Starks on a five-year, $21 million contract that includes $7 million worth of guaranteed money. The best part of Starks might be his upside. He is only 24 years old.

The Dolphins also have reached agreement on a trade with the Dallas Cowboys that would reunite DT Jason Ferguson with Parcells and give Miami a new starting defensive tackle tandem for the coming season.

Additionally, the Dolphins signed former Jets tight end Sean Ryan to a one-year deal and were expecting a visit from Arizona linebacker Calvin Pace.

I'm not saying that I'm jealous of these acquisitions, just pointing out that they appear to be major players in FA this offseason.

Not bad on the McCown Signing.

Wilford...lmao.Bad as we talk about Detroit and WRs Jax is a WR graveyard.

Starks isn't bad.

Bill has the team looking at least on paper a lot more talented and younger then last year. If nothing else like the cowboys he'll have that team headed in the right direction quickly.

As they should be. If they sat idly after a 1-15 season I would be ticked if I were a Dolphins fan.

I think those are all great moves. Josh McCown is going to surprise some folks. He's not a Brady but he's not a Carr either.

also expecting tons of hype on Miami next year, a la the Niners last year. make no mistake about it: the Dolphins will blow next year, but clearly we're going to get better real soon with the people in charge now.

I've seen him play a few times and have always come away slightly impressed.

McCown is decent, better than most of the guys the Dolphins have tried.

Being a Bearkat alumni, I'm happy to see McCown sign with the Tuna-phins. The guy is a gamer, and I think working with a Parcell's team will pick his play up a notch.:whip:
