Alonzo Mayes has gone from making TE our #2 priority in the draft and being a sure 6/1 or camp cut to starting TE :eek: That's what cutting out the Big Macs will do:
In the span of six weeks, tight end Alonzo Mayes has gone from the doghouse to the verge of taking the starting spot away from Jed Weaver.
Mayes stunned coaches by reporting at close to 300 pounds at the start of offseason workouts, which is one of the reasons the team decided to draft a tight end (GeorgiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Randy McMichael) in the fourth round rather than later in the draft. Mayes, though, weighed 279 last week and looked better than the other tight ends in camp.
Mayes still has to lose at least 15 pounds, something he needs to remember with Dolphins players having this week off.
