I think the writings on the wall for Martin. With Haynos,Nalbone, and now Wilford too there's a bit of a log jam at TE and idk for sure but I think Martin is making the most money. Haynos, and Nalbone both come much cheaper, and can back up Fasano.

All three of the returning tight ends will be free agents in 2010, which explains why Nalbone was drafted. He's known as a pass catching specialist, but has decent size (6-4, 255 pounds). But Haynos, a rookie last season, is a year ahead of the fifth-round pick. If the Dolphins keep six receivers the roster might be limited to two tight ends on the active, and maybe two on the practice squad.

Right on, We have alot of WRs and must protect the WR rooks from the practice squad ( last yr we lost JParmale who was poached by Balt and he is going to be a very good RB I seen him up close at Ravens practice field the man is a beast). We can not put London, Turner, Hartline, or Bess on the practice squad they will be poached. 6 WRs and 2 TEs might be the way it goes this yr.

How long before some one can give a picture of the improvements we can expect to this year's special teams? In my opinion, last year's special teams would have to improve to be terrible, and that goes for both sides of the ball. Don't forget the coaching, remember, when a fish rotes it stats at the head.

tough comp at rb i guess he couldn't beat out ronny,ricky,or cobb's when team's are poaching our practice squad, it's not good to lose the player, but it show's depth and quality of the team and player's that the trio has aquired.

we have 11 wr's vying for maybe 6 spot's this is where there might be a surprise cut
Brian hartline ... tough and talented with a tremendous upside punt returner lanky athlete who will go up and get the ball at Big Ten 60-meter hurdler.Pat turner; Lane Kiffin: "We felt comfortable that whenever we needed to go to Patrick, he would do a great job. He has really good hands and he keeps getting better. He's such a good athlete and is so fast."
Chris Williams At 5-foot-8, 163 pounds, Williams seems suited for the slot where Davone Bess roams. New Mexico State's -time leader in reception yards and touchdown catches!!
Brennan Marion, averaged 28.7 yards-per-catch the past two seasons at Tulsa His rehabilitation has been ongoing, and his knee was strong enough for him to run a 4.52 while working out for scouts in Dallas earlier this month. He has been clocked at 4.4 in the 40.
Todd lowbar nfl veteran they had him in dallas hes got a superbowl ring with the giants no college former basketball player.
IT'S ON AT WIDE RECIEVER!!!!!
it will be very interesting to see who makes this squad

I wouldnt say that; '07 was terrible, giving up 35-100yds every time we kicked the ball. Last year was not good so they made an immediate improvement by firing the special teams coach right after the season...
GO PHINS!!!
