The Miami Dolphins have a policy in place for the representatives of the players they visit with and talk with. It basically goes like this. “What we discuss stays private. If it goes outside, then what we discussed is off the table.” It is that “rule” that has made it difficult to follow along with the coming and going of free agents. Heck, even guys in the Dolphins organization are not talking. Welcome to the Bill Parcells show. With that being the case, a little information goes a long way. So here is the scant updates on what is going on with the Phins.
William Joseph – The former 2002 first round draft pick of the NY Giants visited the Phins yesterday. He left without a “public” announcement of a contract offer.
Tab Perry – The versatile special teams return guy from the Bengals, visited earlier this week. He left without an offer as well and is scheduled to meet with the Packers on Tuesday.
Darryl Blackstock – The Dolphins were reportedly interested in the Arizona LB but it appears now that the free agent will decide between the Bengals and the Browns.
Keith Davis – The Dallas Cowboys are set to lose one of their special team aces. A free agent, Davis is hoping to land the opportunity (according to rotoworld.com) of playing more in the defensive secondary. The Dolphins are rumored to have interest.
College Prospects – The Phins have had reps at the pro-day workouts of Vernon Gholston, Andre’ Woodson, and Joe Flacco. Gholston impressed in his workout and has moved ahead of Glenn Dorsey on most mock drafts.
Justin Smiley – Smiley is not ready to workout with the team if they had off-season workouts scheduled and won’t be ready until the start of training camp at the earliest. That has not prevented him from telling a local Miami radio show that “Alan Faneca is old”. Smiley was talking about why the Dolphins signed him instead of Faneca.
