    No idea but Sherman has been gone a while as well and I assume its his version of the GB system we are attempting to use.

    I'm surprised the Bears made this move. I live in Chicago and have been hearing , on 670theScore for months about how thin the Bears are at TE and how they really wanted to give Rodriguez a bigger, better look this year in camp. I think this guy is totally a casualty of the new coach wanting to purge the roster as much as possible.

    He is a casuality of having no discipline and continually being arrested all the while being a very average to below average player

    Strangely, I like this move. Though, I agree its purely for competition.

    I like the flexibility/versatility the phins have at FB/H-back/TE.... see signing Tebow wasn't necessary.

    If they truly want to clear holes for Lamar; they will sign Vonta Leach.

    If Clay keeps this up, nobody will be able to make a case for him anymore.

    I had to hear this stuff about Clay. Inconsistent at "best".

    Clay has to be the most frustrating player on the darn roster. Guy is a good athlete and someone I thought would be a real good pro but he can't catch the fricken ball!!!!
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    I think Rodriguez is mainly comp for Lane, but if we bring in Vonta then I think we see a camp battle between him and Clay, who to this point has been struggling (doesn't mean much at this point, but hey the guy hasn't separated himself his entire career).

    Sign: Daryn Colledge
    Draft: 1. LB Ryan Shazier 2. OL Joel Bitonio 3. WR Donte Moncrief 4. OL Brandon Thomas 5. OT Laurent Duvernay Tardif 6. RB Bo Oliver 7. TBD

    LT Albert LG Smith C Pouncey RG Colledge RT Bitonio

    He had a couple nifty catches last season. His issue is getting open consistently.

    Clay is on the bubble because he is not consistent and he was not a Philbin pick. He better be appreciably better than Miller, Egnew, Sims etc. or he will get cut.
