So, Stafford is the nephew of Chris Carter, runs a 4.3 in the 40, and is 6'2" and 204 pounds. That is they hype. He just was cut from the Falcons last August as a rookie FA. I doubt if he can beat out our top 5 receivers, but he would be someone I'd like to see develop ... provided that he can catch the ball.
Even though he is training camp fodder, I like the change in our player philosophy from slow and big players to big and fast players.

The Dolphins signed wide receiver Kenny Stafford on Thursday, a young, big-bodied (6-2, 204) first-year player who spent time with Atlanta last season.
Stafford, the nephew of wide receiver Cris Carter, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month, was waived by the Falcons in August. He didn't accumulate any statistics last year.
Stafford recorded 59 receptions for 935 yards and eight touchdowns in his collegiate career at Toledo. In his final college season he had 21 receptions for 272 yards and one touchdown.
Stafford, undrafted out of college, turned heads during his Pro Day when he ran a 4.37-second 40-yard dash.
The Dolphins open training camp on Sunday.
