Dolphins refuse to match offer sheet for Haley
Davie, FL (Sports Network) - The Miami Dolphins decided not to match the
offer sheet that restricted free agent defensive tackle Jermaine Haley signed
with the Washington Redskins last week.
Therefore, the Dolphins will receive the Redskinsí seventh-round choice in
this yearís NFL Draft, which will take place Saturday and Sunday. The pick is
the 12th in the round and the 226th overall.
"We came to this decision after carefully evaluating all of our options," said
Dolphins head coach Dave Wannstedt. "With Tim Bowens and Larry Chester, and
the acquisition of Jeff Zgonina this offseason, we feel good about our depth
at the defensive tackle position. This now gives us an additional pick in the
draft, and affords us another opportunity to select a young player. Jermaine
played well for us, and we wish him the best of luck with the Redskins."
Haley, a reserve defensive tackle, played in all 16 games for the Dolphins in
2002. He posted 37 tackles and picked off one pass during the season, his
third with Miami.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins acquired one of New Englandís third-round draft
choices this year, the 14th pick in the round and the 78th selection overall,
in exchange for Miamiís second-round draft choice in 2004.
