Post Dolphins sign WR Kenny Stafford - 6'2", 204#, 4.37 in 40
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.

Dolphins sign WR Kenny Stafford
By Chris Perkins

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.

According to ESPN Boston, Friday's release of Donald Jones was tied at least in part to UDFA WR Kenbrell Thompkins' "strong work" at spring practices.


The Pats salvaged a $200,000 training camp reporting bonus by cutting Jones, but Thompkins practiced so well that he earned first-team reps by the end of minicamp. Reliable beat writer Mike Reiss deems Thompkins "the under-the-radar Patriots offensive player who has arguably built more momentum than any other." Worth a look in all dynasty leagues, Thompkins is also a favorite of Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman, who has a terrific eye for talent.

Who said that spring practices were meaningless because the pads weren't on?

Not an indication of how a player will perform once the pads go on. Its easier to concentrate on catching a football when the WR does not have to be concerned with a safety blowing him up.

You might not even get to put the pads on.

Thanks to the new CBA, there are no "two a days" anymore at this level.

Are you suggesting what happens in shorts is what will happen in pads?

The catch of the day came from Kenny Stafford, a nephew of soon-to-be Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter. Stafford, a second-year player who signed with the Dolphins last week and hasn’t appeared in an NFL game, made a leaping grab off a Moore pass.

“I’m just getting more hungrier so that position be mine,” Miller said.

Keller not a lock? Keller, one of the league’s bright young tight ends when he played for the New York Jets, isn’t a lock to start for the Dolphins, Philbin said.

While it would be somewhat of a stunner if Keller doesn’t start, Philbin said the competition is “absolutely wide open.”

Philbin praised rookie Dion Sims and third-year player Charles Clay, who is more of a hybrid fullback/tight end. Philbin also said that Michael Egnew, a third-round draft pick last year who didn’t record a reception, is showing more consistency.

“That’s a versatile position, too, in this offense,” Philbin said. “You’ve got to do a lot of different things — run, block, pass, get open, create separation, catch the ball.”

Keller, 28, missed half of last season because of groin and ankle injuries.



Sure it's wide open Joe, sure.

And I am sure there is some swampland for sale in South Beach, too.
