Below is a story from the Dallas Morning News which explains why the Dolphins brought Davis in.

"Keith Davis signed a contract with the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday. The Cowboys will miss him more than many of you think.

That's because Davis brought attitude to the Cowboys' special teams, and the defense in the limited opportunities he received.

If you don't believe that, then ask yourself why the South Beach Cowboys, led by Bill Parcells, Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano, made sure they added Davis to their roster.

The Dolphins stink. We all know that. Parcells and his group need to change the culture.

Guys like Davis do that.

Davis doesn't have the most athletic ability. He's not the biggest or the fastest or the strongest. He bites too much on play-action passes, and he gambles too much.

But he plays the game with a passion that can't be duplicated, he works hard, and most important, he plays the game with no fear.

None.

He doesn't believe he can be blocked. He doesn't believe he can be stopped on kick coverage.

He believes he's the biggest, baddest junkyard dog on the field ? and it doesn't matter if everyone else thinks he's crazy.

He believes that in his heart, and his attitude rubs off on others. That's what made him a valuable member of the Cowboys and why he'll soon become a fan favorite in Miami."

Wasted so much time reading useless posts in this blog, but Mad Dog's addition made it worthwhile. We need relentlessness on the Dolphins. People who believe they can get it done.

And remember, The Dolphins aren't just weak in one or two positions. We're limited in a number of them. That requires a massive overhaul, and signing big name free agents is a quick way to ruin a complete rebuilding project.

Parcells and Sporano are making value changes. A player like Davis at a little over 3 million for 2 years is an inexpensive pickup that adds depth to our dbs and strength to our special teams. Also, Davis apparently has a work ethic and locker room demeanor that will boost morale among his teammates. Rome wasn't built in a day, but these are the kinds of calculated moves that take a 1-15 team and make them more competitive.

Review our other acquisitions- Our LB corps is now more solidified, we picked up a well-established OG, we acquired a couple of DTs to help stop up the middle, and grabbed a lengthy, sizable possession receiver to help with first downs. Are they superstars? With the exception of Justin Smiley...No. But are they all are capable of contributing and making the Dolphins organization better? Yes.

I do have questions regarding Lemon's departure and the McCown pickup, but maybe the staff has a particular mold of qb in mind for their offensive playbook. So I'll leave that alone. Overall, I give the Dolphins offseason moves an A.
