Latest on LaVar

Yes, another LaVar thread.

The latest from slobby P.

Another exiled veteran, former Washington Redskins standout linebacker LaVar Arrington, surfaced in Miami on Friday, meeting with Dolphins officials in the first of what figures to be several exploratory visits for the three-time Pro Bowl performer. It wasn't all that unusual for Arrington to be in South Florida, since he has close friends there, and frequently drops in for weekend stays. What is notable is that Arrington is very close to Miami linebackers coach George Edwards, for whom he once played in Washington, and the presence of the assistant coach might give the Dolphins some advantage in the recruitment of Arrington. Make no mistake, despite the career setback Arrington suffered in 2005, when he batted the Washington front office and coaching staff, and appeared in just four games, there are a lot of teams curious about him. He will visit with the New York Giants next, where middle linebacker and former Washington teammate Antonio Pierce is passionately lobbying team officials to consider him, and Arrington now has generated varying degrees of interest from more than 10 franchises.


A lot of teams are going to perform their due diligence on Arrington, to see if his game has slipped, or if the Redskins' orchestrated bashing of their former star is ax-grinding with a guy who charged that owner Dan Snyder shorted him $6.5 million on the eight-year, $68 million contract extension he signed late in the 2003 season.

The likelihood is that no team is going to break open the vault for Arrington but that, at age 27, he might get a short-term, incentive-laden deal that gives him the chance to make some money if he regains his previous stature. If several teams are in the hunt for him, the presence of Edwards on Nick Saban's staff could give the Dolphins an edge.

Re: Latest on LaVar

Add to that the Browns say they are no longer interested, but the Bengals have surfaced as a potential suitor.

Oh, that's funny...I thought Marvin Lewis hated him. He couldn't play within the system...blah, blah, blah. Obviously Lewis saw something he liked...

It sounds like maybe Marvin Lewius was slow playing us a bit with the Lavar sound bytes.

It's on bengals.com, but it says that Carl Poston says the Bengals have interest in his client. Which could be a bunch of bull, just an agent trying to drive up interest in his player

Re: Latest on LaVar

Poston is pushing the rumor that a "dozen" teams are interested in Lavar. This may be true because many owners would love to show Snyder up if Lavar could break out. How many football people have an interest may be another story.

That hasn't been my impression of Saban's program so far. Miami would be a good spot for him. They have had a great defense for years.

I really don't think that is the case that owners would love to show up Snyder. If Arrington could help any team better that is the way they[owners] would look at it! Arrington needs to learn how to play on a team style D. This NFL type of D counts on each player doing his job. It is not LT type D play these days. I think Miami would be a good fit for Lavar!

That is a pretty expensive way to try and get even with Snyder. I don't see any grudges getting involved in this.

Saban is a defensive coach his fingerprints will be all over their defense.
