The Miami Dolphins have been shaking up their camp by releasing a number of players lately. The latest cuts involves Brandon Marshall who was a problem with teammates, Chad Johnson who reportedly doesn’t fit the Dolphins culture most likely due to his arrest stemming from a domestic violence case. Also, Vontae Davis who although being a very talented player showed up to work with a hangover and got the boot as well. Davis was traded to the Colts for two draft picks that are yet to be announced and his elimination from the Dolphins’ camp opens up an opportunity for the team to fill their direly needed wide receiver position. The Dolphins will get a second round pick and a conditional sixth round pick as part of the trade.
Dolphins’ manager Jeff Ireland was asked if he would have any interest in receiver Terrell Owens who was cut from the Seahawks, and according to the Miami Herald, he responded “Probably not”. Dolphins’ find Owens undesirable for a number of reasons; he is recovering from a knee injury that forced him off the field all last season, and along with him comes his history off-field issues and a drama-filled career that previous teams have found very undesirable. With various paternity obligations and financial problems, as well as being known for his short temper, T.O. will have a difficult time this year getting picked up.
