Garner healthy, Hartline bigger, Stanley agrees

Let's start with the news: Agent Ralph Cindrick said on his twitter account that the Dolphins have just agreed to terms with DT Montavious Stanley.

Stanley was a 4-3 defensive tackle last season with the Jaguars. He is likely going to be asked to play the nose or hybrid nose tackle spot for the Dolphins. Jason Ferguson retired suddenly a couple of weeks back and Miami is obviously looking for depth.

Stanley has played for five teams in six years, including the 2006 Dallas Cowboys when Jeff Ireland was in the personnel department there.

Late last week I followed wide receiver Brian Hartline and guard Nate Garner to a community relations reading event then spoke with both about the importance of their upcoming training camp.

I break down Hartline and Garner's chances of starting here.

It is important to note that Garner is 100 percent healthy following a foot injury that derailed his offseason. He spent the entire offseason rehabilitating the injury.

Hartline spent the offseason trying to get bigger, stronger, faster. He also had an issue with a auto accident in which his truck was found abandoned by the side of the road along Interstate 595 here in So. Fla.

Hartline declined to comment on the accident under advice of counsel.

I don't really think this issue will cause Hartline major problems. All reports are no one was injured in the accident, including Hartline. Hartline has a lawyer. The Dolphins aren't likely to discipline him severely unless he is found guilty of something serious. I don't think abandoning a vehicle -- if it can be even proven he did so -- will rise to the level of getting severely disciplined.

Remember, this isn't the first time the vehicle of a Dolphins player was found abandoned at the scene of an accident. Channing Crowder's vehicle was found abandoned at the scene of an accident in January of 2008.

Neither the NFL nor the Dolphins imposed any game-related discipline in that instance. Crowder was reportedly cited for careless driving.

This doesn't and shouldn't diminish the seriousness of leaving an accident -- if indeed that is what Hartline did. But in the universe of off-field issues the NFL weighs, it is more a moon than a supernova.

Why do the Cowboys open camp a week before the rest of the teams?That sounds like something Billicheat would do.

Let the world know that the cowboys early start is because they start preseason early vs bengals @ canton in the HallOfFameGame..

Cinci is giving the Boys a 4 day head start.....I like it.

LoL.... Good one.... Ima have to use that one if u don't mind.

Garner healthy and Hartline bigger is good.
The "X" factor for our offense is Ronnie Brown. If he is back at 100%, were good.
My concerns are on defense.
However, with PSI + Nolan driving, it does help me sleep at night.

thanks Kris for the info on this carlo ponti troll guy. We will keep an eye on him.

Bootang,

In the Trifectas first season here we pulled off the biggest turnaround in NFL history and won the division. That season we also led the league in the + turnover ratio.
I agree with you, we will live or die by our turnovers this year.

Less INT's from Henne and More INT's from Sean and Vontae spells playoff run :)

I'm Pumped!

( MAD MEN ) TONIGHT AT 10.OO PM ON AMC . IT'S THE BEST THING ON TV .

I wouldn't pee on TO if he was on fire. Please don't even think about it.

What's worse is that one flight of steps led to the upstairs and the other flight was on the opposite side of the house leading to the basement.My sources informed me that after he fell down from the first set,he caught on fire and did the "drop n roll",and rolled down the steps to the basement.Sounds like he drank some drank with JaMarcus Russel.

YOUR LAST POST CUBAN VERY....FUNNY .

Oh by the way on a sad note for those of u that r heat fans Udonis Haslems mother passed away this morning! :( RIP

GRRREAT, Whats your opinion on Kindle dropping down TWO flights of stairs, Maybe his bum knee was more "Bum" then he was letting on..

@ kris
totally agree

Didn't think about that I just figured he was hanging with Jamarcus Russel hittin that crunked juice but mabey he was crunked by the stairs when his knee went out n missed catching the railing...

That n I kinda wondered why tha trifecta didn't go after him.... It may prove to be his character more than the issues with his knee but either way the trifecta seems to know something

Or maybe they were thinking "You Know, this guys one flight of stairs short of a full floor".......

I mean you would think the agility of atheletes it would be hard for someone to just fall down a flight of stair no less two... I'm no athelete n the only time I have fallen down my stairs was when I was hangin with Russel!
