Dolphins re-sign Sam Young Matt Haack Jersey
, waive Maurice Smith Sam Young and have waived second-year safety Maurice Smith.Young, 31, will presumably resume his role as the team’s primary swing tackle after being released just yesterday to make room for recently signed center Travis Swanson. The team could have released and re-signed Young for contractual reasons, as it’s unlikely the coaching staff and front office simply had second thoughts and chose to say goodbye to Smith instead. Per NFL rules, a player’s salary is not guaranteed if they are signed after week 1. It’s possible Young was generating too much interest on the open market Cheap Jason Sanders Jersey
, so the team chose to re-sign him now as opposed to waiting until next week. The same situation occurred between the Dolphins and the veteran tackle last season.Young has played in 18 games for Miami over the past two seasons, seven of which were starts. With Young, the team now has nine offensive linemen on its 53-man roster. As for Smith, the former undrafted free agent out of Georgia impressed this offseason enough to earn a spot on the initial 53-man roster, but will now go through the league’s wavier system. If he clears waivers without being claimed by another team T.J. McDonald Jersey
, it’s possible the Dolphins add him to the practice squad. Although the practice squad is currently at capacity with ten players, the team could elect to make space given Smith’s impressive training camp and preseason. The Dolphins currently have four other safeties on the roster in Reshad Jones, T.J. McDonald, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Walt Aikens. Let’s say these weren’t thinly-veiled Cheap Ryan Tannehill Jersey
, “this could mean anything” tweets. Jordan Phillips has been petty for weeks, thus his attempt at rubbing salt in the wound was expected. I mean, he even dug his heels in trying to troll Miami when he made a colossal error late in the game for his new team!Jarvis Landry had his own bitterness after the Miami Dolphins traded him to the Cleveland Browns after the 2 parties couldn’t reach a middle ground on price tag. After a modicum of success in Cleveland, I thought it possible Landry had moved on.However, we can’t just chalk this up to “scorned lovers” Kiko Alonso Jersey
, can we? Isn’t it apropos to consider the ulterior perspective? Where there’s smoke, there’s fire? When you combine some of the current Miami Dolphins players recent comments like Reshad Jones and Ja’Wuan James, you begin to wonder which narrative holds more weight: salty ex-Dolphins or legitimately relieved people escaping (directly or indirectly) Gase’s coaching clutches? Or is the truth, as usual, somewhere in the middle?[Author’s note: @ckparrot has since deleted this tweet.]When you have current players openly questioning schematics http://www.dolphinscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-danny-amendola-jersey
, it’s rarely a good thing. This is not to excuse dung-flinging from Landry and Phillips, but it appears there were enough philosophical and existential fissures in the locker room that it was best both parties went their separate ways. What do you make of this? Typical banter or players rightfully pissed?
