Garrett Campbell (Facebook): Is it going to be Chad Henne under center or do you think through free agency we’ll try and pick up someone like Kevin Kolb or Vince Young?
John Congemi: Garrett, I believe that Chad will start the season under center for the Dolphins. That said, if Carson Palmer, Matt Hasslebeck or Young find their way onto the roster, all bets are off.
It has been a weekend of change not only for the Dolphins, but all around the NFL, as teams have been making cuts and scouring the waiver wire for late roster additions. Today, after an initial delay, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano met with the media to discuss the changes.
Prior to the coach coming into the room, the team officially announced that they had waived DE’s Charles Grant and Marques Douglas as well as guard Cory Procter.
Today the Miami Dolphins announced that they have terminated the contract of two players, waived 18 others, and acquired versatile offensive lineman Pat McQuistan from the Cowboys for an undisclosed draft pick.
There are some definite surprises here, starting with the fact that TE David Martin, re-signed midway through training camp, has had his contract terminated. The team can, of course, bring him back early in the regular season, which could change the amount of guaranteed money that he is owed.
The Dolphins have just one practice today and unfortunately it is not open to the public. Beforehand, coach Tony Sparano met with the media to discuss the news of the day and one of the first things that stood out to me was his discussion of CB Will Allen’s penchant for working with younger guys and passing on some of his hard-earned knowledge.
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.
