    From www.phinmaniacs.com:

    Moreno has been battling injuries throughout the offseason and hasn’t seen much time with the first-team during offseason activities. He will now miss several weeks of camp but I’m not so sure many people expected him to grab the starting job anyways. He was primarily brought to Miami for his pass protection skills and his ability to catch balls out of the backfield. Despite his injuries and his slow adjustment period, he should find a spot on the final roster.

    Who says Moreno is going to miss several weeks of camp? His rehab from arthroscopic surgery was only supposed to take four weeks which would have him ready for the start of camp next week.

    He will make the final roster, and he is expected to be back for the start of training camp. So he won't miss "weeks" of practice. They might start him slow the first week, but he will likely be there.

    He'll make the team but IMHO he'll be Lamar's back up

    Maybe if we drafted a RB, but considering our other options are Miller and Thomas, I'd say there is about a 1% chance of him not making the roster.

    I agree with this. On the team as Miller's backup

    He makes the roster because the rest of the RB's have proven nothing.

    Miller has proven he has speed but goes down at the slightest touch.

    Thomas has proven he is a big RB that runs like a little RB.

    Gillislee..... did he even take a snap last season?

    Thiggy maybe plays the WR/RB role? (Apart from KR/PR)

    I could see that UDFA Williams out of OU making the cut over Gillislee.

    A 50% in shape Moreno makes the Dolphins roster. :bobdole:

    He needs to miss weeks of eating portillos. Man's going to be a FB if he isn't careful.

    He'll make the team because he's the only RB that can protect the QB. This is, of course, unless someone else becomes available.

    I agree. Damien Williams - from Oklahoma is very strongly built and a load to bring down (he resembles a Ram truck). Gillislee needs to show significantly more than we saw last year or Williams will run straight past him and onto the roster. Williams was a decent RB on a decent college team. He was unlucky not to get drafted.

    He hasn't seen time because its glorified flag football and he was injured. Never has anyone won or lost a job in MAY and JUNE practices. Football fans these days are so crazy for any bit of news they make mountain out of molehills. This is a classic example

    Correct! Thank you for talking FACTS! Some of these hack wanna-be journalists who have crappy websites they start in their parents basement just run with nonsense to try and get hits. Moreno will be 100% ready by the 1st practice of Training Camp!

    Wow, my friends and I were discussing how Heath Evans Jamie Dukes and Warren Sapp have jobs with NFL Network and which one will be the next to pull a Darren Shaprer.

    What a classy trio. You know that it's pretty bad when Jamie Dukes is the most intelligent, most articulate and most handsome of the three.

    Gillislee better step up and do something or a guy like Damien Williams will knock him off the roster.

    More him and less Thomas I am hoping for at RB. I think having him on team will make Miller a better RB. He needed the competition and he wasn't getting that from Thomas. This alone makes our RB corp better this year. If nothing this year RB 1st round of draft is a must. It's becoming a glaring need.

    You might not like Heath Evans and Jamie Dukes, but you can't really put them in the same boat as Sharper, an accused serial rapist.

    It's interesting that the NFL Network provides nightly updates on Bully Gate and every other teams dirty laundry, but when one of their on air personalities gets in deep trouble you never hear many updates.

    pretty sure moreno not only makes the roster, but is the starter day 1. i will be stoked if lamar miller grabs the job and runs away with it, but my gut is telling me it is knowshon starting, with miller spelling him. at least to begin the season.

    Moreno will make the 53 and will be available in week 1. If I had to make a prediction, I'd say Miller gets the starting job

    I just don't see them cutting Moreno. Given what we currently have on the roster and what those on the roster have demonstrated cutting Moreno isn't any option. The only way it becomes an option is if the injury is more substantial than what has been communicated. If the guy is going to be out 1/2 a year sure, let him go but if he is back for week one you have to keep him around.

    He won't get cut unless an injury lingers. Need him for run blocking and pass catching. Him and Lamar will split carries with Moreno being out there in most passing downs. Don't read into this report. It's so early.

    Yeah honestly this was one of the biggest arthroscpic knee surgery stories I'd ever seen. I know he plays a different position but i swear Tim Bowens had this surgery during a BYE week and played in the next game. This arthroscpic surgery was a PFT story and on teh EXPN/NFL Networks bottom lines. I didn't understand why such a big deal was being made of it.

    I will wager 1,000 in vCash that Miller gives up fewer sacks than Moreno per pass block. I'll cover up to 20 posters if anyone wants to make that bet.
