The Miami Dolphins tried out six players, including the son of Hall of Fame Washington Redskins cornerback Darrell Green.

Jared Green, a former Southern University wide receiver, tried out for the Dolphins on Friday.

The Dolphins also worked out former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers and former Bethune-Cookman wide receiver K.J. Stroud.

The Dolphins worked out three linemen: defensive tackle Al Lapuaho and offensive tackle Nic Purcell
Purcell and Jason Weaver.

None of the players were immediately signed to a contract.

Rishard Matthews and Marvin McNutt are clearly on the bubble. Moves can occur at Wide Receiver, Tight End, Running Back, Linebacker and Offensive Line.


Don't forget we could be looking at practice squad positions also.

Da'Rick has so much talent. If he gets his head on straight he could be solid. Would love to see us give him a shot.

Rogers could be a great pickup. Talented kid who can make a difference

Good size....if he can develop and, as other have said, mature....he could be a very nice red-zone target.

The Bills fans weren't happy to see him go. It would be nice to try and make something out of him.

Colts placed him on practice squad. I just don't understand what we're looking for. McNutt and Tyms on the PS, and personally other than measurables neither have shown me anything on the field. I liked Bumphis better than both and now that poor guy doesn't have a job. Every time I try to trust this organization they keep resisting greatness. This is small but it holds true everywhere.

There's a reason nobody wants Rogers. I can't believe anybody would lose sleep over him.

Greatness has nothing to do with cuts day. I'd be shocked if anyone we cut was ever more than a third-stringer. Thats why I don't pay attention to camp, most of these low level guys will get your hopes up for nothing.

Because you were in camp along with the coaching staff watching practice and watching the games with a fine tooth comb. Bumphis cleared waivers, there is a reason for that. Bumphis turned the ball over twice and couldn't beat out Thigpen as the return guy. I don't think he offered anything on special teams other than returning.

While Bumphis made some plays, he also made about the most mistakes of any of the WR.

Exactly. This coaching staff has been preaching turnovers this offseason. Usually that means not only forcing turnovers but eliminating turnovers.
