    They can just waive him if he doesn't look good.... its not like we are giving this kid guaranteed money or anything

    I wonder if Carroll or one of the new claims goes. If it's anyone, it's probably Parnell, the undersized OL.

    Good signing by the way, we really need a good return man.

    True. I wonder how difficult it would be to impress on returning kicks.

    I would make the assumption its one of the four waiver wire claims from the weekend. I"ll guess Parnell or Reitz

    doesn't he return kicks and punts? If so, we have improved are return yards greatly, if he's healthy that is

    I'm glad we signed him but hopefully not at the expense of Hilliard. You need him around encase Brown or Williams get hurt and insurance for next year if one leaves. Not sure about the injury thing with C Smith. Head injuries tend to linger and become clusters.

    Yeah and he can instantly be inserted into KR and PR role. You don't need a whole lot of practice for those roles.
    Oh FinAtic good catch! I love how you never sleep on Dolphin news!

    Was hoping they would nab him when I saw that he was released.

    Awesome. I was hoping we'd end up with him or another returner (I think Miller is available still?)

    Awesome. We really needed to boost in the return game. No more Bess on punts guys! Finally.

    It's nice to see this organization acknowledge that we need somebody to return kicks. I don't care who in the back end of our roster has to go to get this done, it's worth it for a returner of Smith's caliber.

    I would expect Reitz or Parcells gets the boot with this signing. Though I wouldn't be shocked if they try and stash Wallace on the PS.

    LOVE this pick up. I feel bad for him - wanting to play in GB so badly and all, but if he gets a KR for a TD, he can do a flipper flip into the stands.

    We already gave him the boot earlier today, Nubs. :chuckle: I think you mean "Jermey Parnell."

    Personally, I'd leave the WRs alone. Most of the league would bring Wallace in for a look, they wouldn't all keep him--but he'd be out of Miami. I would hate to see that since we gave up on Turner. A huge WR to pair with Marshall in some sets would be very threatening indeed.

    What about Robert Rose possibly being waived? Seems like we have sufficient depth at the 5-technique.

    Hmmm wouldn't mind lex getting cut at all but I think it will be the no names that got picked up.

    No way Micah gets cut IMO cuz crowder is injury prone it seems and carpenter replaced Anderson on the roster
