The news appears to be good for the arrival of Chad Henne to the Miami Dolphins training camp this weekend. According to his agent, Henne will be in camp and they expect a deal to be completed by weeks end. Henne himself has said repeatedly that he will not miss any time this season.
While Henne is talking like a proffessional, or soon to be, DE Phillip Merling has been awfully quiet. While his agent is making no guarantees or for that matter any noise, his agent does represent Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano and Dolphins guru of all that is, Bill Parcells. So it would be a bit surprising if Merling doesn’t make a week end signing date as well.
Tony Romo may be the guy to thank for all this change in Miami. According to a report in the Sun-Sentinel, Bill Parcells has said in an interview that it was Tony Romo’s field goal snap fumble in a wild-card game two years ago that made Bill Parcells quit coaching. “All you got to do is kick a field goal, the most elementary of plays, and then you just don’t do it. And so I don’t want to go through that process again. Too much blood,” Parcells said.
Oh my! With the trading of Jason Taylor to Washington, Ricky Williams is the last player on the Miami team to actually play in a playoff game for the Dolphins. Jason Taylor also represented the last active player to play on the same roster as Dan Marino.
