Brent Grimes, Miami Dolphins cornerback: Grimes has been one of the most impressive players in Miami's OTAs the past few weeks. Making it more impressive is the fact that Grimes is coming off a season-ending Achilles injury. Grimes says he's 100 percent, and it's looking that way so far. He’s moved well and made plays in practice. You can already see flashes of the cornerback that made the Pro Bowl two years ago. Miami is counting on Grimes to stay healthy and become the No. 1 cornerback that he was with the Atlanta Falcons. It will be up to the Dolphins to monitor Grimes and not overwork the cornerback this summer in training camp. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Michael Egnew, Dolphins tight end: I don't want to overrate spring practices. But based on what I'm seeing now versus a year ago, Egnew looks like a different player. The second-year tight end is getting open and making plays. He came to the Dolphins with credentials. He was a prolific tight end at Missouri, has good size and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds at the NFL combine. But Egnew didn’t show anything last season, and was inactive for 14 games. Perhaps the light is starting to come on for the young tight end in Year 2.http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post/_/id/59808/afc-east-offseason-stock-watch-8
''I don't remember my dad having any money,'' Mr. Marino told the Times. ''We lived week to week. On Fridays, my Dad did his books and paid his bills. He might have 40 bucks or 20 bucks for the week. We didn't go on vacation. We didn't leave Pennsylvania until they began recruiting me for colleges like Clemson and Notre Dame.''

"Dustin Keller? I wouldn’t let him get off the line," Coples said. "That’s the best way to cover, ain’t it?"
Couple of things that are really funny: In November last year when we were 4-4 they ranked him 3RD! Compare with the current rankings (how did Jason Garrett improve??) A year ago (August in fact) Gregg Rosenthal ranked Philbin in the "We need more information" category. Harrison didn't do that with the rookie coaches this year.

While Brandon Fields was punting out of one end zone, kicker Dan Carpenter stood at the opposite 47-yard line preparing to kick a ball toward the opposite field goal. Talk about hitting the target. Fields’ high, booming kick grazed the back of Carpenter as it came down. While Carpenter turned around to see what had happened, Fields did a mock celebratory fist pump.miamidolphins.com
Here's a list of the ten teams and the amount of cap space they'll gain on Sunday, June 2: Miami Dolphins: $10.4 million — The Dolphins released inside linebackers Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett with "post-June 1" releases and, as a result, will pick up $10.4 million in cap space on June 2. Dansby, who has since signed with his original team, the Arizona Cardinals, was scheduled to earn $6.05 million in base salary, while Burnett, who signed with the Oakland Raiders, was due $4.35 million in salary in 2013. Combined, the two veteran linebackers will earn a maximum of $4.75 million from their new clubs in 2013. The Dolphins had $7.066 million under their adjusted cap number of $128.223 million and have three picks in the first three rounds of the 2013 NFL draft to sign before training camp. Those players are scheduled to count $4,832,672 against the team's 2013 cap. The downside to gaining an additional $10.4 million in cap space on June 2 is that Dansby and Burnett will combine to count $3.575 million in "dead" money against the Dolphins' 2014 salary cap.
