MIAMI GARDENS, FL – NOVEMBER 27: Leonte Carroo /

Six wide-receivers?

Entering training camp it was unclear if the Dolphins would keep five or six receivers. Parker, Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Leonte Carroo were all locks and Jakeem Grant showed enough to remain as well. Training camp provided something else in the way of a legit camp battle for what could become the sixth receiver spot.

The Dolphins have a decision to make with their roster when it comes to Drew Morgan and Damorea’ea Springfellow. Both have had very solid camps and Springfellow had a near perfect game against the Falcons in pre-season week one.

The Dolphins were solid up front with receivers and the depth wasn’t bad but no one believed heading into camp that Miami would have this much quality depth. Making it worse is the fact that the talent level is legitimately developmental and Miami is going to have release someone. Hopefully whoever is can be added to the practice squad.

The odd man out in all of this is Reshawn Scott who has been on the injured list all camp. Scott was expected to challenge Carroo but his not being on the field has opened up opportunities for Morgan and Stringfellow.
