Dolphins sign McCune off our practice squad

ESPN.com - NFL - Knee problems land Culpepper on injured reserve

Also Tuesday, the Dolphins signed linebacker Robert McCune off Washington's practice squad and waived linebacker Keith Newman.

wtf... damnit. I really hoped we wouldve developed him into something special. He had all the physical gifts you could hope for...

Re: Dolphins sign McCune off our practice squad

Was hoping to see him someday on the field.

The guy is put together like a tank.

Would have enjoyed watching him crush cowgirls, e-gals, and gi-ain'ts, but alas... it was not to be.

The guy looks like a hulk but looks don't mean much if you can't play.

Re: Dolphins sign McCune off our practice squad

That sucks - he seemed like a raw talent. I wonder what Miami plans to do with him.

Also, are practice squads just free-for-alls? That is, can any team sign any player off the practice squad?

Well that goes without saying, since I'm horrible at football.

Yes; to their 53 man roster.

But not to their practice squad, right? I can't imagine a player would want to make a lateral move like that, although I guess it's possible if they thought it more likely they would get moved up to the roster on a different team.

Re: Dolphins sign McCune off our practice squad

They knew this could happen...if was not on the 53 man roster by now then he probably was not all that close to being in their future plans.

Re: Dolphins sign McCune off our practice squad

The writing seemed to be on the wall back in August

"He's not where we want him," Lindsey said. "Robert turned out to be a good special teams players last year, and if you're a backup linebacker here we expect you to be good in that area. But we expect him to rise this year when he's playing middle linebacker. And right now, I don't see him where we want him, and I'm not taking the blame for that."

That's pretty damning - the coach calling you out and saying you aren't getting it done. If he doesn't have the chops, he doesn't have the chops. However, I still don't get why we wouldn't keep him as a ST specialist. It's not like we don't have any of those.
