    When you've got a number of guys in camp not really pegged to make the team you are going to be scraping the bottom of the barrel whether it comes to guys being UDFA, CFL, or arena guys. No coach signs CFL guys expecting them to all be Cameron Wake, just like they don't sign UDFA expecting them to all turn into Davone Bess or Tony Romo. But you do that anyway because you aren't going to be able to sign 80 big names for your camp roster so you take a chance on guys knowing that you will probably end up cutting them with virtually no penalty.

    I like giving UDFA and CFL guys a look at, a lot of times they have a chip on their shoulders and something to prove....

    I hate Jeff just as much as anyone, but this is just hogwash. The guy should be doing everything he can to find talent that can make this team better, i dont care if its the CFL or peewee football. Bring in as many bodies as you can to get a good first hand look at them, there is nothing detrimental about doing that.

    I have no problem with scouring Canada, as long as we doing whatever to improve team. Not alot of talent in CFL but there is talent. Wake is a rarity so people expecting those kind of results will be bitterly dissapointed too often but im ok with kicking every rock

    So what do you find more likely Rev? That the Dolphins are the only team that scouts the CFL or that EVERY NFL team scouts the CFL?

    every team does and many teams were looking at Wake. No team thought he would be this good even us, reflected by the contract we initially gave him. We did recognize the potential and outbid everybody else

    Wake decided on us over the Colts, Vikings, Bills, Saints, and Rams and received interest from 17 teams total. We also got Marcus Thigpen from the CFL.

    I was asking the question not because I didnt know the real answer, but to see if Rev knows. I for one dont think he does. Thanks anyway

    I don't know why everyone freaks out about workouts and looking at CFL guys. Every NFL team has scouts dedicated to these areas. Miami is not wasting any resources with this and it's not preventing them from paying attention to the draft, free agency, etc. Get over it, people. This is how you do your job.

    Hey Ireland - Find talent wherever you can! Obviously, the OP has no idea what he is talking about...
