Dolphins say no to Redskins deal

http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/sports/9520158.htm

"According to a source within the Redskins, the Dolphins were offered wide receiver Rod Gardner, running back Ladell Betts and a fifth-round pick for defensive end Adewale Ogunleye. Miami passed, figuring Betts might ultimately be cut."

Weird. The fins should have taken the first we offered them a while ago.

I agree, Rock has looked pretty bad this preaseason.. No pop, no burst.. I like the effort he puts out, but let's go with Betts and McCollough..

Damn it would have been really tight, if they would have taken that deal.

Betts is safe.

His injury problems are worth the gamble for this year at least. Next year is a different story if he can't stay healthy this year.

My prediction is that Simon and McCullough are the odd men out.

McCullough is too similar to Portis in style and size, and let's face it, he's only played against backups. If the staff was seriously considering him don't you think we would see him a bit earlier in the game? Last night after Betts left the game Rock came in. That's a sign to me that Rock will make the team.

If he[Betts] can get by the injurys he will be good! I hate to see him go! With Portis not wanting to run the ball seven times in a row[what was said last night during the game]. We will need Betts!

I think between Portis and Morton we've got plenty of speed in the backfield. What we need now is someone with some power. Thats why I think they'll keep Betts and Cartwright, and release Sultan and Simon.

betts is probably the best mix of power and speed, and he can also catch the ball well, have to keep him, number 1 backup

I don't think that we'll keep Betts & McCullough together. Those two guys are 2 runningbacks where as Rock and Simon are RBs/ special teams players. I think we'll keep one of Betts & McCullough and one of Rock & Simon.

Simon was resting his shoulder, I guess he aggravated it during practice this week

I think Sultan goes back to the practice squad. Betts and Rock I think are both in and Simon is out

I bet most of them are still on the team after the first round of cuts. There are plenty of other guys that obvioulsy shouldnt make the team that will get us down tot sixty.
