90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Spencer Paysinger

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at linebacker Spencer Paysinger.

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.

SPENCER PAYSINGER

2014 Review:

2014 was Paysinger's fourth season with the New York Giants.

He appeared in 15 games, starting 1, and recorded 15 tackles.

Why he might progress:

Came to Miami hoping to fight for a starting job. I doubt he wins a spot, but I no doubt believe he will see more time on the defensive side.

A great special teams ace who will help out on special teams also.

Why he might regress:

May have already hit his ceiling in the NFL as a depth linebacker, who can start in an emergency.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

I believe Paysinger will be on the roster when the 2015 season begins as a backup linebacker. Should be a key depth player and a great special teams player.

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