Twitter: Fins Release CB Maxwell

Post by white1 on Tue Oct 24, 2017 10:24 am

For whatever reason, just was never a fit here. Benched last season, then benched again this season.

So long.

So watch him go to the pats and ball. Not saying he should not have been released, but it would just be perfect bellacheat luck or whatever you call it to get top play out of this guy. I don't know, maybe put him in a scheme that fits his skill set? Just sad that we could not get good play from this guy. Then again, the iggles didn't either. Maybe he is just a guy that played good because of his surroundings in Seattle. Wouldn't be the first time that happened.

Not sure the Pats need him. Their defense is rounding in to form, they humiliated the Falcons on Sunday night.

Maybe so, but is SO bellacheat to pluck ex-Dolphins. Let's see: Gillise, Ninkovitz, Hogan, Welker, who else?

Maxwell sucks. The Phins never should have acquired him and that awful contract in the first place. I'm sure the Eagles are still laughing about that trade, finding a sucker to take that crap contract off their hands. I think we have a cap hit of $8.5 million next year because of this move. Ugh.

Maxwell will find work immediately because he's an experienced corner, but he's simply not a good player. I'll give him this: he does have a knack for causing fumbles. But not enough to make up for his terrible coverage skills.

This move does leave us extremely thin at corner though...Verner is the only experienced backup, and he has shown nothing.  I think Jordan Lucas is still on the team, but I have no idea why.  And Walt Aikens is really special teams only.

BTW, QB David Fales was signed to take Maxwell's roster spot.

We'll also have to cut players when Larsen and McDonald return.  I wonder if backup OT Sam Young will get cut, as it seems that Jesse Davis has passed him on the depth chart.  Davis played both RT and LT against the Jets, and I don't think Young has even been on the active list yet this season.

Edit: Just looked at the roster and saw that we still have Torry McTyre at CB.  I forgot all about him.  He looked OK in preseason, but I'm not sure where he fits.

Well, the Phins made the trade to get Alonso....they just had to swallow the Maxwell bitter pill to get Alonso.

Very Happy

Seeing as how Alonso has quickly become JMP's FAVORITE LB, right???

I just HOPE Gase can keep the lid on the Tannenbaum desire to make another CLEVER deal like that.

LOL Another stupid contract - and that one was our own doing. Kiko is playing better this season, but he's still a liability in coverage and most of his tackles still come too far downfield. He's a mediocre player at best - he'll make a splash play every so often, but overall he's a JAG.

thankfully, that's not the case.

Maxwell’s contract for next season carried a $10 million hit only if he was on the team. Because he was released, Miami will have no cap hit at all for Maxwell next season.

Now why would you want to cut somebody to make room for a third string QB when Cutler is CLEARLY going to play Thursday night?

(Snickers.)

Just Laughing at whatever the Fins do instead of being angry about it. Works for me Very Happy

We might have some shitty players but at least Gase will cut them when they don’t perform. Good news for the franchise

It takes him a while to figure it out, but at least he eventually gets there! Now if only he could end his mancrushes on Cutler and Bushrod...

Better news for Miami since they don't have to pay for it.

yeah, i don't get the Bushrod love.

Christensen has said Pouncey has been Miami’s best blocker this season. Who’s second best? Christensen said “Jermon Bushrod has played extremely well, good solid steady football.”

i can't believe anything that comes out of this coaching staff's mouth about the o-line. i think they are afraid to be critical of veteran players.

Heaping praise on Pouncey and Bushrod???? They're our two worst linemen this season IMHO.

I just don't get some of these analytics that put pouncey as the 3rd highest rated center in the entire league. Do they take penalties into account? Just move beyond him. Why pay someone that much, when it is pretty much a given, that he will not play more than 10 games a year? Makes no sense. You need him now, but next year, we need a new C and at least 1, maybe 2 G and probably a RT. Wow.
