    FAU's David Hinds Signs with Dolphins

    FAU LBMay 5, 2013|By Dieter Kurtenbach


    Former FAU linebacker David Hinds wasn't invited to the NFL scouting combine.
    He wasn't drafted.
    He wasn't signed as an undrafted free agent.
    All he had was a tryout with his hometown team, the Miami Dolphins.




    On Sunday, Hinds made the most of that opportunity, as the Dolphins signed him to a rookie free agent contract after the team's rookie minicamp practice.
    Terms of the contract have not yet been announced.
    "The hard work, attitude and attention to detail David showed during the weekend rookie orientation paid off,” Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland said. “As a player invited to tryout, David approached the whole process, highlighted by his work ethic during practices and meetings, with the type of characteristics that we are looking to add to the Miami Dolphins.”
    Hinds accumulated 238 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in his four-year FAU career. He's a graduate of Miami-Edison High.
    The Dolphins have singed a tryout player the past two years. Last year, the Dolphins signed Andrew McDonald after a strong tryout.

    Attempts to reach out to Hinds and his agent have not been returned as of the publishing of this article.

    I'm rooting for the local guy. One FAU player panned out. Hopefully he will follow that path.

    "The Dolphins have singed a tryout player the past two years."

    I don't think that the Dolphins should singe people.
    Seems really uncool.

    Purely because his tackling technique looks really solid, he doesn't look a waste of time to bring in at all. Obviously a longshot, though.

    Kid looks like an intense guy. Bryan Cox like fire but a little faster than Cox. Good luck to him!

    Is there a rule on youtube that all highlight videos must have songs that suck?
