Per Aaron Wilson of Nationalfootballpost.com, the Miami Dolphins have given a few castoffs a chance to make their case to bolster Miami’s secondary.
Corners Ronald Bartell, Terrence McGee, Jacob Lacey, Jalil Brown, Ryan Mouton and former Miami Hurricane DeMarcus Van Dyke.
The most notable names from this list are Bartell, who spent some time with St. Louis, Detroit, and Oakland, McGee, I think we can all recognize McGee from his old Buffalo Bills days, and Lacey, who spent the majority of his young career with Indianapolis before moving on to Detroit.
This is a little telling about two things:
1. Miami obviously feels that the groin injury starting CB Dimitri Patterson has been nursing is a bit more serious than initially thought. Along with injuries to rookies Will Davis and Jamar Taylor.
2. The team may be concerned with the progress of rookies Will Davis and Jamar Taylor in terms of grasping the nuances of the defense.
That being said, I would be surprised if Miami extends an offer to any one of the six worked out. Bartell and McGee are old news. Lacey and Van Dyke are not very good. Brown and Mouton are just bad.
The team is better off rolling the dice with what they currently have in Grimes, Carroll, an injured Patterson (hopefully healthy soon), Davis, Taylor, Wilson and Stanford.
