Dolphins release David Martin

Here's a surprising move that is breaking now as we speak.  It's being reported by Scout.com and the Sun-Sentinel that the Dolphins have reached an injury settlement with TE David Martin and will release him.  This obviously is a major explanation as to why the Dolphins were so intent on keeping both Joey Haynos and John Nalbone on their 53 man roster.

The settlement doesn't stem from his sports hernia surgery, though.  It's being reported that he's actually having knee problems.

Meanwhile, it's being reported that the Dolphins have signed another tight end - Davon Drew.  Drew was a fifth round pick of the Ravens this year and was waived yesterday as part of their final cuts.

Drew played his college ball at East Carolina and measured in at 6'4, 256 at the Combine.  As a senior at ECU, Drew caught 43 balls for 695 yards and 3 touchdowns and was regarded by many during the draft process as a late-round sleeper.

With all that said, though, you can't help but wonder why the Dolphins signed another tight end to replace Martin.
