    I have raved about this guy, a 6'3 guy with a 4.3 speed. Lets see what he could do...

    If Tyms does play, he'll No. 85 and will likely work exclusively on special teams. The undrafted rookie was initially signed by the 49ers before being waived during final cuts. He was added to the Dolphins' practice squad after the season opener, where he has spent the past 15 weeks.

    Earning a promotion now would be an incredible accomplishment for a guy that played just one season of high school football, walked on to Florida A&M, wasn't one of the team's top two receivers as a senior and went undrafted. You can read more about Tyms' long journey to the NFL here, which makes for an interesting read despite the piece's author.

    My one other thought about a Tyms promotion doesn't relate to Tyms himself, but to the Dolphins' other practice squad receiver in Jeff Fuller. If Tyms is indeed getting a promotion this Sunday, it speaks volumes about Fuller that he's still on the practice squad.

    Which he would get some throws. Why not see what we got with him. Can't lose anything but a meaningless game.

    Fuller has terrible, terrible hands. Stone hands.

    Joe Philbin doesn't like guys who drop the football.
