    Its good to see a few of these UDFA signings are attempts to improve the return game. Livas has eight kicks for touchdowns, the kid must have great vision.

    Van Kamp did not sign. We were interested in him but then went with Devlin. Also OLB Quinton Spears is suppose to sign with us as is CB Jose Perez

    Spears is 6'5" 240 and played at Prairie View A&M. He is quick off the ball. Watching his highlights reminded me of Jason Taylor when JT was in college, but Spears can really lay the wood on QBs. Perez is 6'0" 183 and played collegiately with Roberto Wallace at San Diego State. Wallace tweeted that Perez is signing with the Dolphins.

    only story i can find on van camp is that he was reported to have signed, but says he personally hasn't heard from the dolphins a couple hours ago.

    Would like to sign him though. But if im picking him off in intermural basketball left and right, that might not be a good sign. FAU!! FAU!! FAU!!

    I'm intrigued by the Livas signing. He is small but ran a 4.37 and is a KR.

    With kickoffs now being from the 35, I really don't see kick returner as a priority on any team. It doesn't matter how fast you are if all you are doing is kneeling it in the end-zone :)

    It's like Al Davis bought the team or something.

    I think this UDFA class should contribute more so than others in years past. You are not making choices the day after the draft, scouts and management have had 3 months to look at who was left over and had a game plan. A fast change of pace back, an accurate QB with potential some OL talent for at worst depth all good signings.

    Chisolm intrigues me as a guy who can come in when healthy and be part of our O-line rotation maybe even a starter one day. To go from walk on to a highlighted O-linemen on one of the best running attacks in the country means he has a heart like we need on this team .

    They attacked this is gusto and seemed to have a good plan now lets see what we add in FA.
