GINN BEING REPLACED AT KR?
There's an interesting little piece of information buried deep in a Sun-Sentinel article about the recent signings of a couple of undrafted free agent: Hawaii WR Davone Bess and Georgia Southern QB Jayson Foster. The quote from the paper says:
Foster and Bess have been told they will compete for kick return roles, an indication the Dolphins are intent on lessening the workload of second-year receiver Ted Ginn Jr.
Foster is an electrifying runner (see here ) who is being brought in as a wide receiver and return man. I'm a little surprised to see Bess was told he'll also compete for kick return duties, as he isn't as fast. But he is quick, reminding me of a Wes Welker kind of return man.
The good news here is that this new regime does seem to want to lessen Ginn's workload, allowing him to focus on being the team's #1 receiver. I just wonder if we are losing some value in Ginn because of how dynamic of a return man he can be. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
As long as Ronnie Brown isn't back returning kicks in the preseason (ouch, bad memory there).
DOLPHINS CUT TWO
A little more surprising is DT Steve Fifita. Fifita saw action in 13 games last year for the Dolphins and seemed like he could make a decent project as a backup nose tackle. But following the signing of numerous undrafted free agents, I suppose Fifita's services aren't necessary anymore.
