The Dolphins Sign Pat... UPDATED!

The Dolphins have signed rookie wide receiver, Patrick Turner to a 4 year contract worth $2.464 million. It includes a signing bonus of $714,300k and breaks down as thus:

2009: $ 310, 000
2010: $ 395, 000
2011: $ 480, 000
2012: $ 565, 000

There is an escalator clause packaged into the deal which could triple his salary in the final year. making the deal worth a few shillings more. The contract in itself is not surprising - I predicted back in May that Turner would get a 4 year deal worth $2.9 million - but the bonus suggests that the Dolphins are very confident that Turner will make the team.

    Yes I see that. He better not run out of bounds. In fact he should lower his shoulder on smaller corners whenever he can.  :-D

    Knight, I don't think he'll be running out of bounds. He'll be a beast.

    He'll be the BEASTIEST of BEASTS!

    Hey that money looks low if this guy really turns into said beast. I guess he'd get re-upped.

  7. No, I don't think anyone will be comparing him to Ginn jr.

    Well Turner is 6-5 225 and Ginn is 5-11 180 so a guy with 6 inches and 45 lbs. on Ginn should be more physical.

    first time here...i'm a USC gal!  Patrick is not only big and strong he's a really good person and will not bring any 'diva' issues with him to Miami.  I haven't watched the dolphins much but did see them in a couple of nail-biters lastyear vs west coast teams.  with PT on the team those close games might be a bit easier at least for the offense.

    It's actually a budweiser box.

    I don't really have an NFL team living in L.A. they show Raiders and 49ers games sometimes as well as Arizona (I guess the next closest?) and Seattle.  I saw two dolphins games last year. 

    In LA you kind of have to just watch what they show because we don't have a team.  My dad watches the Rams tho.  I guess I just follow USC players more than anything.
