Anyone wondering what happened to Brandon London? Well...I actually saw him playing on special teams last week, which meant he was active. But what does that mean? Will he contribute in the receiving game, and when? Can he be that big, fast WR that the Fins so desperately need?
Well, these and other questions MAY be answered before the end of the season. And we might start to get an idea even sooner than that!
Here is an excerpt from a PBP story:
Wide receiver Brandon London has just about everything the Dolphins’ fear in a wide receiver - size, strength and speed.
The combination has killed the Dolphins twice this season, courtesy of Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald and Houston’s Andre Johnson, a pair of Pro Bowlers had a combined 16 catches and 331 yards in wins against Miami.
If only the 6-foot-4, 210-pound London had NFL experience, he might be able to pitch in. Coach Tony Sparano hinted it might not be long.
And here are some direct quotes from the "Man with the Plan", the "Master of Downplaying", Tony "No Excuses" Sparano:
“He’s getting a whole lot better fast,” Sparano said. ” He’s very athletic at the position - a long guy that gets on you pretty fast when he runs his routes.”
“He plays on the punt team as a gunner because he’s aggressive and he can release,” Sparano said. “When the ball is in the air, he’ll go up and take it away from you. We talk about practicing against big receivers; he’s a guy that gives us a tremendous look because he can go up and take it away.
“He’s a guy that little by little, we should hopefully see a little bit more of.”
So.... does anyone else see this as a potential "ace in the hole" in the second half of the season? I, personally, am excited by the prospect that we might have a real "sleeper" on our roster that could become the next Marques Colston.
