A look at some items out of Miami..
- In 2011, NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington (on Twitter) told Brett Favre that a Dolphins decision maker was potentially interested in signing him. The veteran gunslinger, he tweets, looked “like the devil on his shoulder was awoken.” Favre, 45, has been out of the NFL since retiring in 2011 but he told Sports Illustrated’s Greg Bishop he’s still capable of playing. “I could make all the throws I made before, I just couldn’t throw it near as far, but that never matters anyway,” said Favre. Despite the confidence he has in his abilities, Favre stated that he’s “not trying to start some he’s-coming-out-of-retirement deal.”
- Wide receiver Matt Hazel has gone above and beyond this offseason to prove himself to Dolphins coaches. Still, he finds himself on the roster bubble, as James Walker of ESPN.com writes. The ESPN scribe gives Hazel, a second-year receiver, a 55% chance of making the roster. Miami is rather deep at receiver at this point, with first-round pick DeVante Parker, veteran Greg Jennings, Kenny Stills, and Jarvis Landry all locks for the roster and Rishard Matthews likely to make the cut. Hazel is presently the current favorite if Miami rolls with six WRs, but there’s no guarantee that they will.
- Omar Kelly and Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel (video link) addressed a wide range of Dolphins topics, including identifying some of the team’s diamonds in the rough. Perkins views fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi as one such player.
