Well, it may be a day off for a lot of folks out there, but the Dolphins were back at work today, practicing in preparation for Sunday’s Week 1 opener against the Bills. The team also made some roster moves today, adding LB Bobby Carpenter, a fifth year player out of Ohio State and another former Cowboy. To make room for him, the team released Charlie Anderson.
One man’s misfortune has turned into another’s golden opportunity. On August 2nd, Dolphins 4th round draft pick A.J. Edds went down with a season-ending knee injury during practice inside the “Bubble” at training camp. The following day, free agent linebacker Micah Johnson was on the field fighting for an NFL roster spot.
Micah originally signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent after the draft, but was waived by New York back in June.
The Dolphins practiced in the bubble this afternoon and afterwards coach Tony Sparano met with the media and discussed, among other things, the team’s pending trade of WR Greg Camarillo to the Vikings for CB Benny Sapp.
When talking about the trade, Sparano said that WR was a “strong unit” and that he has been impressed with all of the guys throughout training camp, which makes it clear why the team was comfortable trading away a guy as reliable as Camarillo (he had literally zero drops last season).
