Sam Madison, like the rest of us, is waiting. One of the best defensive players in Dolphins history, Sam finished his 12-year NFL career with 38 interceptions and a Super Bowl ring with the Giants.
The state of Florida has always been known for producing elite NFL defensive backs from the in-state colleges. The University of Miami has sent Ed Reed, Antrel Rolle and the late Sean Taylor to the NFL. Florida has produced former Dolphin safety Louis Oliver and current Browns cornerback Joe Haden. Not to be outdone, FSU can boast of Deion Sanders and LeRoy Butler.

When you look at one-on-one battles from Sunday’s matchup between the Dolphins and Packers at Lambeau Field you no doubt will keep an eye on Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall lined up opposite Green Bay cornerback Charles Woodson.
Brandon leads the team in receiving yards with 340 yards on 27 catches for one touchdown. Since 2008, Brandon ranks third in the NFL with 232 receptions behind only Wes Welker’s 260 and Andre Johnson’s 240 catches.
