With the lockout now mostly in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start looking ahead and while there has been a ton of conversation about the players the Fins may go after in free agency, we’ve spent a little less time discussing the guys that could be leaving Miami.
The NFL released the official list of free agents this evening, and the Dolphins have 11 total free agents in three different categories.
With just three days until the final pre-season game of 2010, the Dolphins practiced on this Monday with a definite sense of urgency. After they worked, coach Tony Sparano met with the media. Several interesting tidbits today, but first some injury news: tight end Joey Haynos, who left Friday night’s game with a foot injury, has been waived, and LB Channing Crowder has been sent for a second opinion on his undisclosed injury.
The Dolphins practiced this afternoon for the first time since Friday night’s 16-6 loss to the Falcons and after practice, coach Tony Sparano met with the media. While most of the reaction to that game has been negative, the coach emphasized that there were some positives to take away. He didn’t single out any players, but said that he did like the way that the interior of the defensive line played and that they were able to move some people around.
Yesterday afternoon the Dolphins released their first depth chart of the 2010 pre-season. Hours before it was sent out, the coach warned everyone not to read too much into it, but what fun is that? Click here to take a look at it and below are a couple of highlights and observations:
-As expected, Brian Hartline is the starting receiver opposite of Brandon Marshall.
Finally, some offense. In our first installment, we took a look at the very top of the Dolphins numerical roster, eight men who wear uniform numbers in the 90’s. All eight were defenders. Today, we move down to the 80’s and you know what that means…receivers and tight ends. Enjoy…
