Andre Holmes had 26 career starts at Hillsdale College and was named to the 2009 and 2010 1st Team All-GLIAC. In 2010, he had a whopping 104 receptions for a total of 1,368 yards and 11 TDs. In Hillsdale’s first-round 2010 playoff game alone, he had 16 receptions for 208 yards. And, it should be noted that Holmes won the conference triple jump (track and field) in 2007. He is big and fast which should allow him to contribute well on special teams.
The Dolphins are currently filled to the gills on the roster with WRs — including veterens Brandon Marshall, Brian Hartline, and Devone Bess. Although, it is worth pointing out that their big man has recently had some off-the-field issues. They drafted Edmund Gates out of Abilene Christian in the fourth round of this year’s draft to add to team speed. And, some rumors are flying that the Dolphins may pick up Plaxico Burress (NY Giants via jail) — although, I don’t think this will happen.
Do you think the Dolphins should sign Andre Holmes or some other UFA WR to a short term contract and bring them into camp to compete for a spot on the roster? Or, should we just stick with what Dolphins have?
