Rumor Alert: David Martin Cut From Fins, Fins In The Market For DE

According to the “Big O” from WQAM Radio, the Miami Dolphins have cut veteran tight end David Martin.

This is a big blow to the tight end unit, because now we only have one tight end capable of playing at a high level. John Nalbone will now be the backup.

Armando Salguero is also reporting that tackle Lydon Murtha has made the team. Murtha provides quality depth as a backup tackle, and while he is nowhere near the level of play of Jake Long and Vernon Carey, he is dependable in most situations.

Salguero also says that the Fins are in the market for a defensive end, as Marques Douglas, or Charles Grant will not be with the team come Monday. This could mean that both of them will be gone, or one of the other. My guess is Grant will be gone, but they could use him as a veteran presence who can get to the quarterback.

None of this is official yet, but when it is, it will be here first. Stay tuned.
