Dolphins Cut Michael Egnew

Multiple reports are out today that the Dolphins have cut former 3rd round draft pick TE Michael Egnew. The 3rd year player made little to no impact during his time in Miami. He was the butt of all the jokes after the Fins first episode of their HARD KNOCKS season. Egnew was viewed as soft and someone who couldn't pick up the playbook fast enough. While he did show some minor improvement last season it wasn't substantial enough to justify his 3rd round draft pick selection. With a new offense this season under Bill Lazor it isn't hard to understand why Egnew didn't stick around and make this team.

What to Look For Tonight vs Tampa

Jordan Tripp
It's the 2nd preseason game of the season and the Dolphins will face Tampa Bay. While I could care less of the score and the outcome of the game there are a few key things to keep an eye out for tonight.

1) Will the Offense Keep Rolling--The starters on offense last week played only 1 series and looked spectacular. If they can back it up again this week that would be a nice sign as we get closer to Week 1.

2) Can Ja'Wuan James play better at Right Tackle--The rookie first round pick struggled a bit last week at right tackle. He wasn't awful but he wasn't anything special either. Being a first round pick it would be nice if James came out and put out a strong performance. I would expect James to play the entire first half again this week.

3) Will Jordan Tripp Continue to Impress --Yes, Jordan Tripp has a chance to win a starting linebackers job. He is working some with the starters in practice now and has been impressive. If Tripp has another strong performance than Ellerbee or Wheeler will be un-seated as a starting linebacker.

4) Will a Cornerback Rise above the Rest-- After Brent Grimes the Dolphins have a roster filled of young and unproven coreners. Will Davis, Jamar Taylor, Jailil Brown, Walt Aikens. With Jimmy Wilson now moving to Safety the first 4 games someone is going to have to grab the 3rd CB spot and take hold of it. Will Davis played well last week and took a step in that direction. Will he continue to play well or will someone else make a name for themselves this week.

5) Will Someone Win the Right Guard battle---Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner, Shelly Smith...will someone step up and take this job. Shelly Smith has been an utter bust the first 3 weeks of training camp. Has played poorly and we now know why St. Louis let him go. Dallas Thomas has been a pleasant surprise but he is still limited. Billy Turner looks like a beast at times but makes too many rookie mistakes. Someone will have to raise their play and maybe we see someone stand out tonight.
