The Miami Dolphins are not done tweaking their roster. Today they let go Joe Reitz, the recent offensive lineman they signed, so they could add Special Teams ace Clifton Smith. Smith, a former Pro-Bowl kick-returner will give the Dolphins their best return man since Ted Ginn.
Smith however, doesn’t come without some baggage. He suffered two concussions in the span of a month while with the Tampa Bay Buc’s. He was released last month from the team after having knee pain. He worked out for the Green Bay Packers but joined the Dolphins this afternoon.
Smith was a 2008 Pro-Bowler who averaged 28 yards a kick return and 12 yards a punt return. Prior to Smith’s arrival, Patrick Cobbs and Nolan Carroll were handling the duties.
In other news, Jake Long has returned to practice and will play barring any set-backs. That is good news for a unit that is thin at depth.
