2014 Miami Dolphins Depth Chart

Dolphins depth chart released with Starks starting

The Miami Dolphins released their first depth chart of the regular season yesterday. The only real surprise on it came with defensive tackle Randy Starks listed as the starter over Jared Odrick.

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.

Watkins is a former fireman who was drafted at age 27 in the 1st round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles.

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. He'd be unlikely to start on the Dolphins if he makes the team, but based on the beatings Pat Devlin and Matt Moore took in preseason, the team could use some upgrades on backup offensive line.

Good news for Dustin Keller - No Nerve or Cartilage Damage in His Knee

13

This new information is important because while torn ligaments can be repaired with surgical grafts, damaged nerves can't be treated that way. Earlier reports claimed that Keller had potentially suffered nerve damage. The lack of nerve damage means there is a potential path back to football for Keller. By no means will Keller's rehab be easy, but this news makes it more likely that his career isn't over.
