Miami Dolphins work out wide receivers and cornerbacks

Former FAMU Rattler and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brian Tyms worked out with the Miami Dolphins yesterday.

The Miami Dolphins had the day off yesterday following their 30-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the final preseason game of 2012. However, that did not mean there was nothing happening yesterday for the Dolphins. The team, as was reported yesterday, spent the day trying out wide receivers and cornerbacks, using former Chicago Bears quarterback Matt Blanchard as the guy throwing the ball.

Palm Beach Post reporter Ben Volin was all over the workouts, reporting that the Dolphins took a look at three wide receivers and three defensive backs on the day. The Dolphins, according to Volin, worked out Donte Stallworth, Mike Sim-Walker, and Brian Tyms at wide out yesterday, while the DBs featured safety Drew Coleman, cornerback Rob Hood, and cornerback Donald Strickland.

Volin added that the Dolphins were not expected to sign any of the players right away, instead letting general manager Jeff Ireland look around the waiver wire before he made any move.

However, late last night, Volin added:

Hood is an eight year veteran of the league, and personifies the typical nickel cornerback. Like Volin said, he would add good depth behind Richard Marshall, Sean Smith, and Nolan Carroll. He would also push Carroll, forcing the third year player to develop. Hood plays well in run support, and he works well in the middle of the field. He could be a solid addition to the depth of the cornerbacks.

Of course, if the Dolphins sign Hood, it does not help them with wide receivers. There are still more moves coming with this team. Now we know they are actively looking to upgrade both the wide receiver and cornerback positions.
