The Miami Dolphins ended the Saturday practice by announcing that tight end Aaron Haltermen and guard Reuben Riley have been released. The move frees up two roster positions that soon could belong to recently worked out Quincy Carter and possibly Terry Glenn.
As I reported earlier in the week, Glenn was close to a deal until his physical brought more concerns up with the Phins medical staff. While Glenn would add a needed veteran to the WR position, he does nothing if he can’t be on the field.
Carter on the other hand is trying to resurrect a career that never really took off in the NFL. Showing signs of promise and athleticism spiraled out of control with sideline bursts and drug abuse.
Earlier when pressed, Tony Sparano admitted that he would be willing to start rookie QB Chad Henne if he beat out the competition, a scenario that unfortunately may not be far from reality.
