Josh Samuda Cut, Danny Watkins signed to a 1-year deal

11

The earlier report about the Dolphins wanting to sign Watkins was apparently correct. First, Josh Samuda tweeted his goodbyes, indicating that he had been cut in favor of Watkins after a shaky pre-season. Then, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald was the first to report a deal had been completed with Danny Watkins. As I wrote previously, Watkins is a former fireman who was drafted at age 27 in the 1st round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. Watkins has struggled in his 1.5 seasons as an NFL starter, particularly at pass protection. He played so poorly in 2012 that he was benched midseason despite playing on an Eagles' offensive line that lacked depth. That being said, he had a decent 2013 preseason in which he was positively graded in 2 out of 3 preseason games by ProFootball Focus. Like Dolphins fans, the team's front office clearly felt they could use some upgrades on backup offensive line.
