90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: A.J. Francis

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at defensive lineman A.J. Francis.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.

A.J. Francis

2014 Review:

2014 was Francis' second season with the Dolphins.

Unfortunately, he was placed on injured reserve on August 27th.

Why he might progress:

Before going on injured reserve, Francis was really impressing the coaching staff and they really like him.

Believe he was on the second team before heading to injured reserve. So expect the coaching staff to give him a lot of playing time in the preseason to prove his worth.

Why he might regress:

His football career has been nothing but injuries.

If he can't stay healthy, there is no way he makes a team.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

I think Francis makes the roster. I don't think the coaching staff wants to risk losing him to another team. If all else fails, Francis can just continue to be an Uber driver.

So how do you think A.J. Francis will do this season? Does he make your roster? Feel free to discuss below.
