Dolphins check in on Routt but signing not likely

The Dolphins have made an inquiry with the agent for cornerback Stanford Routt, NFL sources are telling me. But ...

The Dolphins are not interested at this time.

The team reserves the right to change its mind in the future. Things can change with player injuries and level of play, etc. But the club has no plans to sign Routt any time soon.

So there's that.

Routt is an interesting player because he has so much potential and the Raiders and Chiefs have paid handsomely for that potential. But both have been disappointed with him to the extent they both cut him.

The Raiders drafted Routt in the second round of the 2005 draft after he ran a 4.27 at the scouting combine. In February of 2011 he signed a three-year contract that included $20 million in guarantees over the first two years.

But Routt didn't last with the team into that second year. After starting 15 games in 2011, he was released after a season in which he didn't play up to his price tag.

Seeing an opportunity, the Chiefs last February signed Routt to a three-year deal, this one worth $19.6 million. But the Chiefs stink and Routt was apparently not fitting in well with the defensive scheme. So, yes, he was cut November 5.

Routt, I'm told, is best suited for man press technique. He apparently struggles to learn zone concepts and sometimes has blown coverages on calls.

Having said that, he's out there. The Dolphins checked in on his status because Richard Marshall is on injured reserve and they just gave up 433 yards passing to the Colts.

But nothing is going to happen with him here any time soon.

Boy am I glad the Dolphins didn't hire Mike Mularkey as their coach...

If the Colts win I swear ESPN will become the Andrew Luck 24/7 Channel - he is replacing Tebow as their newly crowned king - he beat a mediocre team at home by 3 points and now he is beating the worst team in the league (one of the worst teams) - they are getting the crown ready already. My dream is for the Dolphins to get another crack at him in the playoffs.

Just like Fins game, Luck's good but still makes mistakes. Jax got the pick where we let him off the hook.

Luck is still too good to let off the hook when he makes mistakes. Jax just may already be to far behind and not good enough to win this game. Tha wasnt the case for us. Cashing in on one of Luck's mistakes Sunday could have been good enough for victory.

Matt Moore would've won Sunday's game.

Pittsburgh Jim,

I believe the Luck o'mania is a bank rolled attempt to make Luck the new face of the nfl. The old guard of nfl qb's will soon be changing. Luck's being positioned to be the new darling.

Tebow was media ratings jester for the league, RG3 is sales and advertising prince, Luck is being positioned to become the "golden goose".

Mike @ 10:08 PM,

Too bad you didnt get the memo. Matt Moore doesnt play defense.

Matt Moore will eventually win more SB's than Marino. Too bad it will be for another team.

"Isnt it gay that Jake Long have the goldie locks looks? For God sake get a haircut you hippie! Wonder why his play have regressed.."

The hair battle was won in the Sixties...it's you who have regressed...to about 1950, Fonzie.

Philbin buys bulk pak budget cottage cheese at Walmart.

ANY ONE KNOWS IF WE DO HAVE GAY PLAYERS ON OUR DOLPIN TEAM ? NOT THERE'S ANY THING WRONG WITH THAT ...........

If talking Future it is, the only time to draft an OL top 15 is when there's a Matt Kalil or Mike Pouncey there; otherwise, it is not a value pick. Jake Long fitted the mold but the QB selected by BP came out all wrong.

OSCAR... ARE YOU SAYING YOU KNOW BETTER THAN BP ?


There is a book called North Dallas Forty written by a former WR of the Dallas Cowboys(name escapes me) that is very funny and although fictional, true. There are in there descriptions of homosexuality among Players, Coaches and Owners. Nothing much surprising. We had Sonia here.

I can say it now, ALoco. Henne turned out all wrong.

WHAT THAT MEANS ? HENNE TURNED OUT ALL WRONG ? IS HE GAY ? THERE'S NO THING WRONG WITH THAT ,


OSCAR... DO YOU KNOW OF ANY PLAYER ON OUR TEAM WHO'S SORT OF GAY ?

Since The Moment, many things came out all wrong. Our Task, forever, will be to make them right again.

Philbin is being an idiot just like Sparano leaving team MVP Moore on the bench and starting a QB thats not performing and is ranked 29th in the league.

North Dallas Forty was NOT written by a former NFL player.

The 1st rd should be for drafting playmakers not OL.

JOSE,

SINCE YOU KOW WHO WROTE HAT,TELL US IF WE HAVE GAY PLAYERS ?

WHO WROTE WHAT

That I don't know as fact, ALoco. But Nobody is a fool in this World. There MUST be gay Football Player just as there are que-rs in Society. There have been persistent rumors that the great former Dallas QB Troy Aikman is gay and from my viewpoint Henne is too. I call them Alice and Sonia.

oscar knows a lot about gays, huh?

OSCAR,


HENNE IS MARRIED AND HE'S HAVING A BABY VERY SHORTLY ,TELL US MORE ...

Is Chad Henne Amish now....

It is my Profession to know People, odin bi.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF PETE CARROL THE SEA HWAKS HC PETE CARROL ?

oscar, so you are gay yes?

KRIS,

DO YOU KNOW OF ANY GAY PLATER ON OUR TEAM ?

Wh you bother me, Jose? The author of the book North Dallas Forty is Peter Gent, former WR for the Dallas Cowboys.

Odin, are you around?

Well, I can tell Armando has his "streak".

Henne...lol...

OSCAR,,,


MOST PLAYERS WHO WEARS A TOWL DURING THE GANE ,ARE 90% GAY.

Nah, I'm not gay. I just get bored and all upset with Women around me. I fuc- them for 7 years, leave them a child, then leave.

Henne looking better than Tanne right now. Should have stuck with him, We let him go right when he was maturing.

Henne and Gabbert both have the same 1830's mustache....

These guys shower naked with each other and pat each other on the ass. What does that tell you?

Hey Kris,

How's it going? I've heard LOT"s about you!

Are Henne and Gabbert auditioning for Broke Back Mountain....The Sequal....

Coming from a very prudish Spanish Culture Country, one of the major shocks to me when I arrived in USA was taking communal baths after Phys-Ed. Never had I taken a bath with somebody of my gender. There was a guy that was missing the head of his di-k(probably a dog), there was this guy called 3 Patas who whenever he entered the shower room, most turned their backs against the wall. In all, an interesting experience. But I made sure none of my sons went thru it.

Krissy, you can spell better than that, or can you?

WTH is up with Lucks hair cut.....

must have been rookie hazing week @ Colts camp....

Luck looks like Tom Hanks in the movie Philadelphia.....

Kris dear, don't you read anything? Are you that out of touch honey? They shaved their heads in honer of Pagano. Layoff the smut and read some real news once in awhile.

Bunch of quee-s and bugas here.

That's what passes for REAL NEWS in your world....lol.....

Ok TROLL, time to GET LOST...The ADULTS are here to talk FOOTBALL!

Henne is playing at a higher lever than what we saw with the fins. COULD it be the coaching?

No wonder your on a football blog talking to yourself...and BEGGING me for conversation....

Odin....

That's the Henne we all know and love....

and....

Let Oscar continue to talk to himself....

Have any of you whiteys done a black girl? I took the waitress from Denny's home. She had a bush like a jungle of barbed wire, scratched me up. But, super slippery inside. I think they have superior genitals, I pumped her steady for some time and she stayed juicy. Lot's of fun, I'll go back for seconds for sure!

ODIN,


Henne playing at a higher level now? Looks like the old days in Miami with the tipped ints. LOL

Can there be anyone more naive than Kris?

I don't think so. Born yesterday that guy.

If that is so, odin, then definitely is the Coaching. btw, I was vey impressed by your knowledge of the Kennedy affair and the Cuban involvement in it. Guard your sources of that knowledge very well. They might ask for them in a near Future.

There isn't a REAL poster on this blog who doesn't KNOW and RECOGNIZE that Oscar is Troll on this blog.....him his many Troll nams.....

Let him continue to expose himself as the looney tunes he is....

Kris,

Continue exposing yourself as a royal idiot. It makes us all feel smarter :)

all the names are comming out.....

oscar has wit and an actual opinion. Many of you have nothing more to say than a fart in the wind.

Feeling smarter and BEING smarter are 2 differnt things......

please learn the difference....
