Hello everyone.... I was at a group Dolphin autograph signing today... as ZACH THOMAS, OLINDO MARE, BRENT SMITH, MARK DIXON...and former UM TE JEREMY SHOCKEY were all together...signing at OUTDOOR WORLD in DANIA, FL...as they helped kick off the Boating and Camping Expo over there.
This was a promotion in conjunction with former CANE ALUMNUS...and Dolphin player....CB ROBERT BAILEY....and it proved to be a great way for many people and vendors like myself....to get some nice MINI-HELMETS signed...and to get SHOCKEY to sign up some UM MINI-HELMETS.
If you are interested in ZACH THOMAS auto-graphed mini-helmets....please e-mail me at Dirtycashholdin@aol.com. I have many of them....I will give you the details. Also got ZACH to sign some TEXAS TECH minis....where he put his college number...35...as well as his 54 number on it.
Drew Rosenhaus was there with his client Jeremy Shockey....and he believes that SHOCKEY will be going to the GIANTS...who have really shown substantial interest.
Mark Dixon...noted that he is "going through a divorce"....so he has to play football this season. He looks like he is ready too...and has dropped about 10 pounds he says...wants to play at 280.
Brent Smith....showed off where the surgery was performed on his right knee...the torn acl....but said that he is 100% ready to compete with Marcus Spriggs...at LT. SMITH said that he will not be moved anywhere else on the line. He prefers to play LT...over any position on line.
ZACH was the only player who said that he had actually had a conversation with new RB RICKY WILLIAMS. OLINDO, BRENT and MARK...have said that they have never even said anything to RW....except for a basic introduction since he has been down here. They all said that RW is working his butt off in the weight room....and has found a freind in DEON DYER...of course...his workout partner. RW is indeed quiet as a mouse....but they say...so what. They know he has come here to play...and work hard.
Finally....BRENT SMITH has told me....that Guard ANDY VINCENT is not at the off-season workouts...and apparantly has decided to quit football....for a family-related business back home.
