Just a quick Dolphins note in advance of this week’s OTA days:
Justin Smiley, who remains on the roster, won’t be a Dolphin for more than another two weeks. That’s what I have been assured. The Dolphins are still trying to trade him, but if they can’t (and it will be difficult to get much other than a conditional late-rounder), they are expected to release him prior to the May 28th minicamp and allow him to seek employment elsewhere.
Also, I’ve been told that other media reports — about the state of Smiley’s shoulder — have been “overstated.” Yes, it is a chronic problem, and it does require maintenance, but he isn’t close to retirement or anything like that. He should still have a chance to be a functional player somewhere. It just doesn’t appear that the place will be here.
