    You may remember that Jeanty played for the Bengals up until 2009 when he broke his leg in the playoff game against the Jets. You might also remember the Dolphins were interested in signing him last offseason but after meeting with him told him the injury was more severe than he and the Bengals thought and that he would need surgery to fix things. The Bengals medical staff screwed things up so much for him that after re-signing with the Bengals he had to miss the entire 2010 season. He did end up having the surgery the Dolphins told him to get, and now the Dolphins are interested again. He would be outside linebacker depth and a special teams player.

    So let me get this straight: The guy's an outside linebacker and he's yet to even record a single sack in the league. Sounds very promising ;)

    Now that the season is officially over, what's the rule on signing players that have been waived? Do they have to wait until the new CBA is in place?

    I think this is good if hes healthy. I really do not like our depth @ OLB, Mosses isnt any good and behind Francis there is no 1 worth it. I kinda regret cutting Walden he was a ST ace.

    He would be more of a special teams player and depth at linebacker. We do need help on special teams and if he can get back to his old form(big if), he should be of some value.

    Doesn't hurt to bring in some depth at OLB . . . what do we have? Moses and Ike? Jeanty also contributes on special teams . . . bring him in.

    Didn't we draft a guy that had that surgery? Didn't he stress fracture around the plate put in during the surgery? Good thing to see we learned our lesson!

    It is a pointless signing and isn't even worth the bandwidth! But hey atleast our medical staff caught his injury prior to us trading a 2nd round pick and passing on a All Pro, Superbowl MVP! So that is progress right?

    This kid was a pretty decent player when healthy. Where is the risk here? They can bring him in and get a look before the draft and see where he is physically. Now he would have the whole off season to train with the team and get completely healthy. Some people will get excited over a 7th rd LB pickup or an UDFA pickup but a guy that started but got hurt is a wasted pickup? C'mon folks!

    i think i remember seeing a week or two ago an article that said there will be a period of time (it was roughly almost a month if im not mistaken) where teams can sign players who have been released from their team. Now i dont remember what it said exactly and i know the Free Agents would have to wait for the CBA but im pretty sure players can be released and signed during this period of time. I think it was from like now until March. Anybody else know about it?

    No man I had this guy circled coming out of college a a special teams ace and 3rd down pass rushing QB nightmare! Don't let his lack of impact prior to a serious injury fool you this guys career is a rocketship on the launch pad.

    Well to be honest, the Phins can't sign anyone worth a damn yet. It's two days after the end of the season for crissakes

    Some people are just trying to put a negative spin on everything. He could be a solid contributor for us.

    Is signing him really necessary? Aren't there bigger needs to be addressing?

    For me cutting/trading Roth was an odd move even with his mystery illness.

    Our backups are Quentin Moses and Alama Francis at OLB . . . I think we could use some competition to help improve the depth on this line.

    Classic Armando. Armando chiming in with "this may or may not happen news" means it is time for Omar Kelly to chime in with his own brand of reporting: making things up.

    This just in, Omar Kelly reporting that there is a chance the Fins are considering Jeanty at QB. Oh, and that the Dolphins are going to change their logo to a muskrat.

    I swear if I saw Armando walking down the street I would strike him repeatability with a keyboard. At least he covered all the options what an insightful piece of reporting.
