who, who, who, and who?

Actually, I saw Reed at that night practice at Dolphin stadium and he looked great.

Save some money, cut Marty Booker, and play with Ginn, Hagan, and Reed.

p.s.- letting go McMichael was a baaaad choice.

Kerry Reed is a heck of a receiver, it is a shame he doesnt get a shot, guess when your overpaying stiffs like marty booker and derek hagen thats what is going to happen, hopefully he will get a shot now.

these positions dont really matter.
this really shouldnt even be worth the print of the sentinels time. what miami needs to worry about is who is going to be the next head coach and the next qb.

And this assesment is based on his standout year with St. Louis this year I presume?

Don't bother to let facts get in the way of your opinions.

I liked what I saw in Reed, too. He and Beck had some nice chemistry. But naturally, Cam didn't play him...a la Lorenzo Booker. But those days are behind us!

I agree that Reed looked really good and I was hoping to see more of him, as a plus he did seem to have excellent chemistry with Beck during the preseason and from what I read of the camp reports.

Houck said Love had great feet and that is why the moved him from DL to OL; some guys have made this transition and become pro-bowlers but there have not been that many and there were no updates on Love throughout the season.

I don't know anything at all about the other two.

I never thought much of Keyshawn Johnson as a player but that was primarily due to his mouth (which may explain why I think he is an awful sportscaster). I think if the Phins cut M.Booker they may seriously look at KJ to come to the team as the veteran guy to work with Ginn, Hagan and whomever else they get. KJ should come cheap which would be a plus and is career stats are fairly comparable to TO's except for TDs. I don't know if Parcells would go after Chad Johnson but if not then I would think KJ is a likely option.(I would prefer oochocinqo)

...while I'm no fan of "dropsy" Hagen, the fact is that he makes little more than the league minimum ...and as for Reed, no matter what you think of him, if the QB's on the field thought he and his routes were a better match for them than those already playing, he'd have seen a lot more action ...but they didn't and he didn't ...as for Hagen is just one more failed Saban draft pick and should be quickly gone ...unless of course, the new receivers coach can put superglue on his hands.

It's great to see that the front office is paying attention to small details like the practice squad (seriously). It seems like over the last few years [decade?] this was lacking. Maybe these guys are a bunch of no-name benchwarmers, but they have already been evaluated and signed. Let's hope they keep this up with all aspects of this team. Remember: God is in the details.

4 out of 8 players on the practice squad have been retained . Means we have room to put Hagan , Solai ,Jason Allen and Tuff Harris somewhere . Now , for the rest of the players .............tryouts will commence as soon as the team has a ( figurehead ) head coach in place .

I spent most of last training camp & pre-season charting Reed's performance. He has some trouble achieving separation on intermediate routes because he is a "long-strider." He also must work on the positioning of his hands. Has potential as a flyer on special teams.

Hey buddy, the QB's don't get to choose which recievers play and do you really think OUR QB's are in a position to evaluate other positions?
