On Tuesday, the Miami Dolphins cut RB Larry Johnson…again. As I tweeted, @PhinNationJohn (Shameless Plug), this came as no shock. Johnson was re-signed because of the health concerns with RB Daniel Thomas, but after Thomas’s 107 yard debut, it is apparent LJ’s services are no longer needed. I do not see another team picking LJ up after only gaining 2 yards on Sunday. If the Dolphins would need him…again….he should be available.
The Dolphins added DL Igor Olshansky, another former Cowboy, on Tuesday. This seems to be in response to the Dolphins’ concerns of the health of their D-line. It is being reported that Randy Starks is dealing with some sort of leg injury and Tony McDaniel is out with a broken hand. Seems the Dolphins replace one insurance policy (LJ) with another (Olshansky). This pickup is not huge news, but its interesting to see the Dolphins continue to pickup Dallas Cowboy pieces, not saying they are bad players, but it hasn’t worked.
The Dolphins also re-added CB Nate Jones, former Cowboy (shocker), to the roster on Tuesday. Also unsurprising, as the Dolphins are trying to sure-up the secondary.
