  • 12 Rookie UDFAs signed

    The Dolphins on Friday announced the signings of 12 undrafted rookie free agents.

    Linebackers: Akil Blount, Tyler Gray and James Burgess; kicker Marshall Ko
    Former FSU Olineman Ruben Carter
    Long snapper Ryan DiSalvo
    Wide receivers: Rashawn Scott and Brandon Shippen
    Cornerback Lafayette Pitts
    Tight end Gabe Hughes
    Safety A.J. Hendy
    Defensive end Farrington Huguenin.

    Blount is the son of Steelers Hall of Famer Mel Blount. Akil Blount was a three-year starter at Florida A&M.

    The 6-foot-1 Scott played college football at Miami (Fla.) and had a big senior season, recording 52 receptions for 695 yards and five touchdowns. He was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in February but probably went undrafted due to injury and character concerns stemming from his up-and-down college career.

    Gray reportedly chose the Dolphins over contract offers from four other teams.

    It think both Burgess and Blount have a shot at making the 53, at the expense of Hull and Paysinger IMO. I really liked what Hewitt did at the end of the season. I think he'll push for a starting spot this season over either Misi or Jenkins.
    The Dynamic Duo ! - BOOM! POW!

      I'm all for it. I saw nothing out of Hull last season and Paysinger was mostly a Special Team player. Bump them both off the roster.
