    just cut by MIA. Was their starting DE at points this year. Pretty good against pass and run. 6'3" 278llbs. Has some substance abuse history. So don't know what's going on behind the scenes. But for a 3 game (knock on wood) playoff rental, why not sign him?

    I'm sure they good word of potential off the field stuff. No other reason to cut him now.

    Maybe we should look at doing a "Don't ask,don't tell" signing for a few weeks....

    Wasn't he a guy we looked at in the offseason?

    Yeah we came close to signing him. Brought him in for a visit in March.

    PFT is saying the cut is not due to any legal issues.

    Yeah, he was. I think he came close to signing with the Cowboys but ended up in Miami.

    We could use him, we are thin at RDE.

    We've signed enough guys who are here just to practice, not to be active in our playoff run. We have enough Dlinemen without picking up some other teams reject, just cut when they have a playoff game. We are NOT that desperate, and what message does that send to your own guys who have worked their behinds off all year. DLaw, Mayowa, Irving, Crawford(s), Davis....and at tackle....McClain, Collins, Thornton, irving, and Crawford(s)....we are in good enough shape. Remember, rotations tend to shrink in the playoffs anyway.

    Maybe some salve for those in despair over losing Zach Moore.

    Maybe he was about to hit incentives in his contract and Miami did not consider him worth keeping.

    So what is our D-line as it currently stands?

    RDE - Mayowa, J. Crawford
    3DT - Collins, T. Crawford
    1DT - McClain, Thornton
    LDE - Irving, Lawrence

    Not bad if all 8 of those guys are healthy and active. Otherwise, we could be very weak at DE with the losses of Gregory and Lawrence presumably.

    It won't be the same as Zach Moore.

    Rumor I'm reading is that he was told he wasn't going to play, reacted poorly to that and then he asked for his release.

    He's not a right end, but he's a versatile, useful piece. Can play both inside and at LDE. Can't hurt to bring him in.
