I am a production assistant for Turner Sports and I love my job. I also love the Dolphins and have been writing my own blog since 2007. I would love if you gave it a look and considered it as part of your regular Dolphins web rotation.

Just looking now at his PFF stats, this could be way perhaps unsurprisingly one of his toughest coverage days of the year was against Philly when he gave up a 15 yard catch to Maclin, and 5 of 6 for 74 yards against DeSean Jackson. Though the 1 incomplete was an interception by Houston.
One of his biggest problems wasn't really his problem at all. The safety play in Detroit was...shall we say, questionable?
more castoffs i see. Didndt we already try that this offseason with richard marshall? he played what 4 games just like gamble? no thanks, we need to pick up our groceries in the draft.
And CK - Maybe my view of his hips failing him are simply a misread of what you described, because I see the same thing when he faces the faster receivers. I'm by no means able to break down a guy in the secondary like you can, but I noticed exactly what you did.
I honestly don't hate him as a 2nd boundary CB.
from that list, i'd be happy with either Grimes, Cox, or Lewis- maybe Porter, Houston, or Butler for a reasonable price... in an ideal world, i'd be all for resigning Smith (if he came at a cheap deal) & signing one of those guys, and also drafting a DB with one of our 3-7 round picks.
