Duper Feels Ochocinco Will Be Asset For Dolphins

Posted By The Finsiders On June 12, 2012 @ 2:56 pm In Football | No Comments

[1]There was no doubt when the Dolphins signed Chad Ochocinco that he would be assigned the No. 85, because, well, it’s his name.

He, however, won’t be the first perennial Pro Bowl receiver to wear the number for Miami. Mark Duper, who, along with Mark Clayton, formed the “Marks Brothers” tandem in the ’80s, wore No. 85 for the Dolphins for a decade (1982-92).

The Dolphins Honor Roll member thinks that bringing in Ochocinco is a l0w-risk move that could end up being a big move, even if it takes away time from younger players.

“He’s still got football left in him,” said Duper, a two-time All-Pro receiver.  “If he comes in and works hard, makes the team, I think he’ll be an asset to the Dolphins. He could help the Dolphins more than he could hurt the Dolphins. That’s what they need, veterans receivers to come in and bring along the young receivers and get the job done.”

To hear more from Duper, log on to Dolphins.com or tune in to 940 WINZ at 5:05 pm. Also, former Dolphins wide receiver O.J. McDuffie will join The Finsiders at 5:30 pm  to give his thoughts on the Ochocinco signing and the Dolphins receiving corps.
