Normally, it is only a matter of days after the fist game is announced that the rest of the schedule is produced.

Miami seems to be stepping up to end the Arrington fiasco:

Miami to play in season's first game

asalguero@MiamiHerald.comORLANDO - The Dolphins, absent from prime-time games last season, will kick off the 2006 regular season with a Thursday night game against the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers, according to an NFL source.

The league is scheduled to announce today that Miami will travel to Pittsburgh for the inaugural game of the NFL season -- one which is televised nationally on prime time and features national recording artists playing before the game and during halftime.

The game will be played Sept. 7, and the remainder of the NFL regular season will begin Sept. 10.

 

Arrington will love opening the NFL season - unless he is already on the IR by then.

 

INTEREST GROWING

 

The Dolphins have called the agent for Joey Harrington to express their interest in the Detroit Lions quarterback, even as they are preparing to step up efforts to sign unrestricted linebacker LaVar Arrington .

Finding a veteran backup quarterback and an outside linebacker are Miami's priorities for the remainder of the free agency signing period.

A source said Miami officials called agent David Dunn to gauge Harrington's availability should the Lions waive Harrington before June 15 when he is due a $4.5 million bonus. The Lions are trying to trade Harrington because they would like to get a draft pick for the player, and Kansas City has already expressed interest.

It is likely the Dolphins and Lions will talk about Harrington's availability this week at the NFL annual meeting.

Arrington, meanwhile, might be invited for a second visit with the Dolphins. He visited the Jacksonville Jaguars during the weekend and also has been in contact with Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis, who was the player's defensive coach in Washington.

But the Bengals have not made Arrington a contract offer, and the Jaguars have apparently backed away from meeting Arrington's asking price of about $6 million per season with guaranteed money in the $10 million-$12 million range.

The Jaguars don't want to pay any defensive player more than they are paying Marcus Stroud and John Henderson. Both players signed six-year, $34 million contracts.

The Dolphins don't necessarily want to meet Arrington's asking price either, but the source said the Dolphins want to convince Arrington that playing in Saban's scheme is worth lowering his asking price because it would increase his worth in the future.

 

Looks like the bumbling bench jockey is headed to Miami. The Giants don't seem to have the least bit of interest where Lavar ends up.

Thanks for the update. The price of 6 million per year and 10-12 guaranteed is out of the giants price range. If we dont get Arrington, I think it virtually guarantees that we use our first pick to get a LB, unless there's a player on the board that is too good to pass up.
