The Miami Dolphins signed two-time Pro Bowl lineman Kevin Carter
to a $30 million, five-year deal Monday, adding their second free-agent
defensive end, and cut David Boston
after the receiver failed his physical.
A 10-year NFL veteran, Carter spent the past four years with Tennessee, but was released by the Titans in a salary-cap cutting move in February. The
Miami native and former University of Florida star will make $16 million in the first three years of his deal with the Dolphins.
The Dolphins, who are expected to have all four defensive line starters back, also signed defensive end Vonnie Holliday
Boston was signed before the 2004 season, but missed the entire year with a knee injury. In December, he was suspended by the NFL for four games for
testing positive for steroids. Boston has denied using steroids.
This gives the Fish quite a defensive front, although their problems last season were on the other side of the ball. They need to spent a few bucks on
someone who can make some plays on offense as well. Boston has been a bust most of his career, injuries and suspensions, I wonder which team he'll
steal money from next.
