"Kaleb was an outstanding student-athlete at Michigan State University, respected by both his coaches and his teammates alike," said Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland. His leadership and personal attributes there were obvious and he brought those same qualities to the NFL when he joined the Lions. When you combine that with his passion for the game of football and the people who play it, I have no doubt he will be a valuable resource for our players. We are fortunate to add someone of Kaleb's talents to our organization."
This in the wake of 3 (or more?) of our phins run in with 'the man'.
