    With the criminal charges it all comes down to if the judge is a Dolphin fan and whether o not he thinks Walton can help the team:lol:

    Man, I wish Nathan could have played longer with Marino. The fit with those two together just worked. If Shula would've got rid of Olivadotti and the defense would've been better. What could've been?:ponder:

    Reading the posts on our UDFA have been exciting as much or more than our draft picks IMO. Interesting.

    Loved Marino and Shula. When Marinio retired both our running game and defense improved alot.

    It's not a perfect comparison but the best I could think of from a Dolphins perspective. Walton is more jittery than Nathan, who was big enough to remain inside while Walton is more comfortable bouncing outside.

    Granted, this is based on the Canes career. I didn't follow Walton too much at Cincinnati. Backs tend to bulk up early in their NFL career so I expect Walton to look somewhat bigger and stronger in a Dolphins uniform than I remember him from Coral Gables

    What makes you say he's a wannabe gang banger? Because he had a weapon in his car or because he had a small amount of weed? I've seen middle age suburban housewives who have carried a gun and who have used marijuana and I would have never drawn the conclusion that they were wannabe gang members. I'm not saying he has a track record of making good decisions, but I think sometimes we make an assumption that if a person is black and has a weapon that they're a thug. Al number of people carry a gun for different reasons.

    If a suburban housewive with replacement level talent carried a gun and was caught with marijuana in their car, I wouldn't want them on the roster either. Put me on the list of someone not calling him a 'gang banger' but rather as someone who isn't real interesting in invested on a low ceiling guy with off the field issues.

    From a football stand point I can go either way with the signing. He wasn't signed to a big guaranteed deal. The Dolphins are looking at a young mid round draft pick at little to no cost. If he flops it cost you nothing.

    A rancher needing a gun to protect livestock seems different to me than a guy carrying a gun who has an arrest record, and is going to a restaurant or bar

    The idea that first of all, everyone with gun racks in their truck window is simply protecting livestock isnt true. Secondly, it is not illegal to carry a gun with an arrest record. Thirdly, these athletes are targets many times, they have money, they are in the spot light, god forbid one of them keeps protection while going to and from a restaurant!! THE HORROR!!
