New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at punter Brandon Fields.

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.

BRANDON FIELDS

2014 Review:

2014 was Fields' eight season with the Dolphins.

He appeared in all 16 games and recorded 58 punts for 2668 yards. He had 21 punts in the twenty yard line.

Why he might progress:

Fields has been a solid punter for the Dolphins for years. He just needs to continue to remain a consistent punter.

Why he might regress:

Fields averaged 46.3 yards last season. That was his lowest since 2010.

This could suggest that Fields is on the decline and may continue to get worse.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

It was actually reported during the offseason that the Dolphins may move on from Fields. This wasn't because of performance though, it was contract related. Fields agreed to a restructure of his contract.

Fields will be the Dolphins starting punter when the 2015 season begins. I would like to see him return to his Pro Bowl form.

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