Report: Dolphins try out Donte Stallworth
By James Walker
The Miami Dolphins need all the help they can get at wide receiver. This is a group the team has supported publicly. But behind the scenes on HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” it was clear frustration continues to build with each passing preseason game.
That is why it is no surprise former New England Patriots receiver Donte' Stallworth is working out for the Dolphins Thursday, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The Patriots made receivers Stallworth and Jabar Gaffney among their early cuts this week, and Miami is one of the first teams on the move.
The Dolphins need more receivers who who can take pressure off rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Miami's receivers have had issues with making plays and holding onto the football. This won’t be the last receiver the Dolphins consider adding to their 53-man roster. Expect several changes by the time Miami starts the regular season against the Houston Texans on Sept. 9.
