With a nice combination of moves, the Miami Dolphins have transformed their linebackers group over the off-season. In 2010, the unit helped the Dolphins finish sixth in the league in total defense thanks to a Pro Bowl outside linebacker in Cam Wake and a very good inside linebacker in Karlos Dansby. However, with a series of moves this off-season the Dolphins have added depth at the position to supplement talented returning LBs: Wake, Dansby and Koa Misi.
@bernmcbern: What would it take for the team to sign Plaxico Burress? It would make my dreams come true. Any chance of this?
Jesse Agler: It’s a fun question to ask and I’m definitely one of the people that think Burress will definitely be able to contribute this season for whatever team signs him.
As a player Bryan Cox may have talked the talk but he definitely walked the walk. The first thing many remember about the former Dolphins linebacker is a particular gesture that he made to Bills fans in 1993. However, what many fail to remember is that after firing his team up for that big game, on the second play from scrimmage Cox threw aside two blockers and sacked Jim Kelly setting the tone for a dominant defensive performance and a 22-13 Dolphins win in Orchard Park, N.Y.
