Ogunleye update

Postby NittanyLions » Sat Apr 17, 2004 10:45 am

Restricted free agent DE Adewale Ogunleye has until 11:59 p.m. to sign an offer sheet with another team, but agent Drew Rosenhaus said he doesn't expect that to happen. In that case, his client's rights would revert exclusively to the Dolphins. Rosenhaus still hopes the Dolphins might trade Ogunleye before the draft next week but coach Dave Wannstedt said at the recent NFL meetings that isn't a possibility. Ogunleye has no plans to sign the team's $1.83 million tender and may sit out the first 10 games of the season. Under NFL rules, the Dolphins can reduce Ogunleye's salary from $1.83 million to 110 percent of his 2003 base salary, or $412,500, if he doesn't sign the tender by June 15. If the Dolphins cut Ogunleye's salary and he reported for only the final six games of the season, he would make about $170,000 instead of the $1.83 million for a full season. A long-term contract with the Dolphins is Ogunleye's preference, Rosenhaus told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, but the two sides are "miles apart" on that front.

Looks like he will be a Dolphin, unhappy with his contract and being a waste on the bench for 10 games.
