  • Dolphins sign Clubber Lang

    ... or Cleyon Laing rather. lol...


    Every time an NFL team signs a defensive end from the CFL, everyone always wonders if he will become the next Cam Wake.
    Which brings us to Cleyon Laing, a rising talent with the Toronto Argonauts. Though nothing has been signed, he has agreed to terms on a three-year entry level contract with the Dolphins, a source said Monday, following reports in Canada.
    Laing isn’t as heralded a prospect as Wake was coming out of the CFL, but the Dolphins are intrigued.
    Laing had five NFL offers, including ones from the Jets and Patriots.
    But the Dolphins were the most persistent, and the defensive coaching staff sent word that he would benefit learning from Wake and Ndamukong Suh, which carried weight with Laing.
    Laing, 6-3 and 280 pounds, also felt well-suited to Miami’s 4-3 defense, where he can play end or tackle if he makes the team (and we're obviously a long way from him making the team).
    He had 41 tackles, nine sacks and two formed fumbles for Toronto last season. His agent, Jonothan Hardaway arranged workouts for him with seven teams, including the Dolphins.
    An Edmonton native, he had 3.5 sacks in four seasons of a nondescript college career at Iowa State. He has 15 sacks in 35 career CFL games.
    Could mean we're done with Coples... low risk, little money, high reward type signing. Like knowing we beat out the jets and pats.

    Doubt Laing is anywhere near the freak Wake was. Also Wake DOMINATED in Canada. This guy not so much, but we'll see...

    Hopefully he is a late bloomer who only gets better with age. Em in early for evaluations and it might even affect our draft strategy.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      You can never have enough pass rushers or run stoppers... low risk/high reward signing.

        OK, that sounds like they are planning on keeping Wake around....I hope at a much lower rate....

          Yeah, not sure what Wake will be like once he returns. I expect his explosion to be gone and he's never been very good against the run. Not sure what we have in Laing...

        Clubber?? Hopefully that's not a nickname given to him for his nightly habits.
        While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

          Was just fooling around with the name. It was that or Crayon... and agree. He's got a ton of work to do to make the grade in the NFL.
