Micajah Reynolds to get shot on defense with Dolphinshttp://www.freep.com/article/20140521/S ... /305210180
Micajah Reynolds gave offense a shot, but now it’s back to defense in his quest to make an NFL team.
Reynolds confirmed he has an opportunity at defensive tackle with the Miami Dolphins, after the New Orleans Saints waived him earlier this week. Reynolds (Lansing Sexton) will be in Miami for a Dolphins rookie mini-camp that runs Friday through Sunday.
Reynolds originally agreed to join the New England Patriots as a defensive tackle after going undrafted, but Saints assistant Dan Roushar – who coached Reynolds as an MSU assistant – called him and convinced him to sign a deal with the Saints as an offensive lineman.
Roushar told the 6-foot-5, 307-pound Reynolds at MSU that he was an NFL-caliber offensive guard. But he flip-flopped several times at MSU and was on the defensive line permanently starting with spring ball 2012.
