Former assistants' migration to Dallas continues

The Dallas Cowboys and former Dolphins secondary coach Brett Maxie are close to finalizing a deal that will continue the migration of fired Miami coaches to Dallas.

Maxie was with the Dolphins only one season. He was fired along with practically every other coach on Cam Cameron's staff following the 2007 season. Maxie coached in Atlanta prior to coming to Miami.

The Cowboys already hired former Dolphins offensive line coach Hudson Houck and recently were talking to former Dolphins defensive coordinator Dom Capers.

Todd Archer and Calvin Watkins, of the Dallas Morning News, reported this morning that Capers is not going to end up in Dallas when it is all said and done.

So for the time being, Capers and his hefty salary of approximately $2.2 million per year will remain on the Dolphins' books.

Interesting that when he was fired as Houston's head coach, Capers held out hope he could land a head coach job elsewhere. He didn't. Now that he was coordinator of a defense that went from No. 4 in the NFL to No. 23 overall and No. 30 in points allowed, he is still trying to land an defensive coordinator role.

The Cowboys were apparently unwilling to displace Brian Stewart from the defensive coordinator job in Dallas.

Armando, since you guys have very little to report on how about you give us a proactive look at the up coming RFA and FA signing periods, who hasn't reached agreements with their team and who do you think the Dolphins will be after out the gate?? Also do you think the Phins will trade out of the number 1 spot?? Do you agree its gonna take a three way trade for us to get the value equal to the first pick??

Armando, Could you look into comp picks? We lost D. Mcintosh,S.Mckinney,W.Smith,D.Bowens,J.Harrington,J.Zgonina,S.Morris,T.Minor. We should get something in way of comp picks. Thanks

To anonymous;Compensatory picks arent that easy to come by. You only get them for players you lost through free agency,so McKinney and Harrington arent included.You are limited to 4,and you only get them if you lost more in free agency than you signed.
Miami lost 7 free agents but signed 9. They gained 3 starters,Porter,Martin and Feely. A 4th,Liwienski, started 14 games. McIntosh was the only starter they lost. They wont get any compensatory picks.

Interesting... A 13-3 team taking coaches from a 1-15 team. Hopefully the Cowgirls will suck next year. Couldn't happen to a better team.
