Nate Ness returns to the Miami Dolphins after being released by the Seattle Seahawks. All the speculation was on where Randy Moss will end up. Going under the radar was the return of Ness to Miami. Ness proved in the preseason that he was going to be hard to keep on the practice squad, as much as we wanted to keep him, he made a name for himself against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He racked up 4 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and a handful of pass break ups. Without his play the Dolphins may have fallen short in that game. Yes we all know its preseason and it doesn’t really count, but for someone trying to make the team, it means the world.
After spending the 2009 season on the practice squad and making some noise this year in the preseason, it was no surprise Seattle picked him up. After spending the first half of the season with Pete Carroll, which will just be a huge help in his development. Ness can help add needed depth to a talent filled secondary with the likes of Vontae Davis, Sean Smith and Benny Sapp. With Jason Allen losing his starting job to Sean Smith, after giving up one to many big plays. Depth is a critical point to this team, this is where Ness can prove his worth. If he can give 100% at all times, I think he can be an addition to the secondary. The Miami Dolphins secondary is good, yet very young. This move may not be an upgrade, but depth is a proven commodity in this league. Ness can provide that. Plus, he already knows the system.
