    Road to Dolphins cleared for Reggie Nelson

    The road to Reggie Nelson? Wide open, people. Wide open.

    The former first-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars was something of a disappointment early on but he found his way to the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010 prospered under secondary coach Kevin Coyle. Nelson, 28, had four interceptions, eight passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two sacks last season
    Well, Coyle is Miami's defensive coordinator now. See a connection building?

    And Nelson, from Palm Bay High school, is a Florida native. More connecting.

    And the Dolphins have been searching for an upgrade at free safety. More connecting.

    And the Bengals had the chance to franchise Nelson but decided instead to put the tag on kicker MIke Nugent.
    hOpportunity!!!

    Does seem like a good line of speculation. We've talked about this before.

    The one thing is Armando is making an assumption about Reggie when he says he'd be ready to make all the secondary calls. Kevin Coyle kept having Chris Crocker start in the secondary and I wonder if Coyle entrusted the secondary calls to him rather than Reggie Nelson. Reggie never had a reputation for being the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    And what might that be? That Nelson sucks?

    Or maybe that a dependable kicker isn't that easy to come by and more importantly, the price of tagging a kicker is only 2.6 million?

    i think its fair to say that if cinci viewed nelson as being on this major uptick as a player and someone to build around in the secondary they wouldn't be franchising a kicker instead of him...especially given the tag # for one year on a safety isn't rediculous...but i think its also possible that maybe cinci feels like they can get nelson signed so they decided to use the tag on something else...

    frankly i think the guys very average...he'll shirk contact and i don't think he's the most heady or intelligent guy back there...but coyle may like him so we'll see

    i still think though if they let you hit free agency when your young and in your prime and tag a kicker instead they're not all that warm and fuzzy about you as a player

    i don't look at this personally as a outright upgrade i tell ya that much...
