The sad decline of former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Davone Bess continued to get worse Wednesday when the Cleveland Browns announced they would release the troubled receiver.
The Miami Dolphins were once the model franchise in the National Football League with stability in ownership, the front office, the coaching staff, and even at many positions on the field.
Former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Davone Bess was arrested for assaulting an officer/firefighter Friday morning.
The Miami Dolphins’ first opponent of the season, the Cleveland Browns, will have some familiar faces for South Florida football fans; but also be missing the team’s 2013 first-round NFL Draft pick.
While it’s been assumed that Davone Bess would remain the Miami Dolphins’ slot receiver; that may or may not be the case. According to the New York Daily News, the Dolphins and Jets are currently pursuing wide receiver Brandon Gibson.
While most of us spent the weekend enjoying some time off, the Miami Dolphins were hard at work trying to woo the top wide receiver in free agency to sign with the team.
It’s been almost three years since a free agency class has been so eagerly anticipated by the Miami fan base. That year saw the Heat hit the jackpot with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. With plenty of cap space and some solid free agents out there; the question this year is can the Dolphins come close to the Heat’s success?
Should they or shouldn’t they? New England tight end Rob Gronkowski could be cleared to play in this weekend’s contest versus Miami, but the Patriots aren’t sure if they should let him play or wait and activate him in the postseason. Waiting could avoid re-aggravating the surgically repaired forearm which he fractured in Week 11.
The Dolphins may struggle against the Bills this weekend, as they could be without their best receiver and will definitely be playing without their star kicker on Sunday.
The Dolphins appear to have the edge in their upcoming matchup against a Bills team which has given up a total of 65 points in its last two contests.
