Post Dolphins' unsung players make annual push
The Miami Herald

MIAMI -- Seemingly every August, a few undrafted players - often rookies - arise from anonymity and seize Dolphins' roster spots.

Whether it be Davone Bess, Dan Carpenter, Derrick Shelby, Josh Samuda or others, the Dolphins have uncovered several under-the-radar "acorns" in recent years, to borrow a pet phrase of Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland.

So who, if anyone, will break through from this year's cast of long shots?


Receiver Chad Bumphis is certainly making a case. ...

Running back: Gray spent last season on the Dolphins' physically unable to perform list, ...

He justified that faith Sunday, with 41 yards on seven carries. It would still be a surprise if he sticks behind Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee, but Gray is making a case.


Tight end: Kyle Miller, undrafted out of Mount Union in 2012, joined the Dolphins last season after Indianapolis cut him and has impressed by finding seams in the middle of the field. But he's an underdog against the improved Michael Egnew in a battle for potentially one roster spot.

Offensive line: None of the rookies has duplicated the success of Samuda, who claimed a roster spot as an undrafted rookie last summer and now is working with the starters at right guard. Asked who impressed him among the young linemen Sunday night, Philbin could not name anyone.
