It's surprising that the Miami Dolphins need so much help on defense, given their drastic improvement over the course of 2011. Free agency would be a good way to get that done, and another big name on defense is set to hit the market.
The only cornerback who performed well last year was Vontae Davis. Pretty much everyone else had a big drop-off from 2010 to this year.
They'll be hunting for help in their defensive backfield through the draft, but they should look to add in free agency, as well.
It's not a question of whether there will be a market for Trufant; with so many teams in need of a cornerback, he'll have plenty of callers. At 30 years old, though, the question must be asked of how much he hast left in the tank.
Coming off an injury-shortened season, Trufant has the potential to pay off greatly given what he'll cost. The problem is, even when he was healthy, he wasn't playing at a very high level.
My mom imparted a saying on me that goes, "Those who can't do, teach." Even if Marcus Trufan't can't do anymore, the Dolphins would be wise to bring him in to teach.
