90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Gerell Robinson

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at tight end Gerell Robinson.

Chris Humphreys-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.

GERELL ROBINSON

2014 Review:

2014 was Robinson's third year in the NFL.

He was signed by the Denver Broncos at the beginning of 2014 but was later released and signed by the Cleveland Browns and appeared in one game. The Browns released Robinson in October which then landed Robinson on the Dolphins practice squad. On December 16th, the Dolphins promoted Robinson and he appeared in two games with the team.

He did not record any stats.

Why he might progress:

The Broncos moved Robinson to tight end in hopes of creating a pass catching backup to Julius Thomas.

Has a year of tight end experience under his belt now and is more familiar with the position.

Why he might regress:

However, he still may not be familiar with the tight end position.

The Dolphins like tight ends that can catch and block. I'm not sure how Robinson's blocking skills are.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

The third tight end spot is up for grabs, but i have it going to Arthur Lynch. Robinson will be waived sometime during the preseason.

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