It seems that all teams have their share of problem children. I don't mind adding some as long as we have a system in place to help them. One good thing is that they are low-risk players in that we got them on the real cheap. We can cut them easily if we see them as players unwilling to improve.

### The Dolphins’ off-field issues last season haven’t deterred them from signing players with blemishes. Miami has added several, at low risk, in recent days.
Among them: LSU defensive tackle Anthony Johnson (reportedly a positive drug test at NFL Combine); running back Damien Williams, who averaged 4.9 yards per carry was last season before being dismissed from the Oklahoma team for rules violations; seventh-round Marist defensive end Terrence Fede (suspended all of 2010 for rules violations); fifth-round Liberty cornerback Walt Aikens (previously pleaded guilty to possession of stolen property, though he asserted Saturday it wasn’t his fault); and Temple defensive tackle Kamal Johnson (police say he assaulted and locked his girlfriend –-- who he accused of cheating on him --- in a bedroom for 3 ½ hours against her will 18 months ago, but the kidnapping charge was reduced to disorderly conduct and harassment).
Also, we're told the Dolphins conveyed that they planned to offer a contract to UM’s Seantrel Henderson (who had multiple positive marijuana tests) if he went undrafted before Buffalo took him in the seventh round.
