Lane had some moments last year as a rookie but he did kinda suck for the most part...They were looking for an upgrade all off season so you could see this coming

Here's the link for the roster cuts. Anyone else baffled about Lance Louis? I thought he was getting healthy.

Given the absolute lack of talented depth at the guard position...yeah that's a headscratcher.

I was surprised, but he could be re-signed after week one (if he's still available) to have less financial impact.

I thought for sure Charles Clay and Nolan Carroll would be on that list.

I really wanted to see Lane make it.

I wouldn't of been surprised if Carroll was on the list. Wish we simply had a replacement for him. He's always toasted

Lane looked nice the first half of last season but he seemed to plateau instead of taking that next step. Gotta pray that Rodriguez has woken up and is taking his second chance seriously. Hes got some skill & I;m sure we'd all be happy if he were one of the delightful surprises on the team this year

I think we resign him for less $ if nobody else picks him up. It was a business desicion!

Jorvorskie Lane was a good story for those that really knew his background. I watched him play local HS football at Lufkin here in Texas. He was a beast growing up, then went on to have a nice college career at Texas A & M under Mike Sherman. Was out of football a good 2 years or longer after college, ballooned up over 300 pounds and I believe was delivering furniture when Mike Sherman called him and challenged him to lose 40-50 pounds then call him back and he would arrange a tryout with the Dolphins thru Jeff Ireland as Sherman believed he had the talent to play at the next level.

He did all that and made it to the NFL and whether he comes back to the fins, latches on to another team or if his career ends here, he overcame a lot to make it to the highest level.

The NFL can be a tough business to stick and unfortunately you could recognize that his play slipped and Rodriguez just out performed him and it is even debatable if Miami even keeps a true fullback when the final roster cut hits.

That article thinks it's a financial decision to avoid paying him that bonus of being on the 53 man roster.
