90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: LaRon Byrd

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at wide receiver LaRon Byrd.

Steve Mitchell-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.


2014 Review:

2014 was Byrd's first season with the Cleveland Browns.

He appeared in 1 game and didn't record any stats.

Why he might progress:

Spent 5 weeks on the Dolphins practice squad last season and impressed the coaching staff. Which will be a huge plus for him in the preseason. He'll see a lot of playing time in hopes of impressing the coaches even more.

Why he might regress:

Suffered a concussion in 2013 with the Arizona Cardinals, which is when he entered the league as an UDFA.

Then suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in early December last season.

Just when Byrd looks like he is ready, he manages to get injured. Will have to stay healthy if he wants to make a team.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

If anything, I see Byrd returning to the Dolphins practice squad. But if he manages to impress the Dolphins could choose him over Rishard Matthews, who is not happy with the team.

So, what do you think will happen to LaRon Byrd? Does he make your roster or not? Feel free to discuss below.
