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.
