Merling cut by genius Dolphins mgmt

I liked Merling coming out, could be a good pick-up before the draft starts. Would cement the DT rotation and remove the need from the board, IMHO.

He didn't appear to ever do anything while there with Miami, so who knows ??

I'm not familiar with him much, but remember him coming out of college.

I would have to question the lack of production...

Coyle is the DC there now. Wonder what he knows? :unsure:

Merling would be an interesting pickup. He really wasn't suited for Miami's 3-4. He's much more a 4-3 DE type. That said, aren't the Dolphins switching to a 4-3 this year? If so you have to wonder why they would let him go.

Certainly worth kicking the tires.

He's not a DT.

Yes, pardon me.

He was playing a 3-4 DE in Miami. He could play inside, or outside in a 4-3, like Fanaene had done, though i see him more as a DT given how the Bengals rotate thier DT's and DE's. He's a versatile guy, more of an elephant DE. 6'4" 295.

Guess he's bulked up a lot since he was drafted. He was a 270 lb DE coming out of college. Haven't seen him since then. I think he would have been much better playing at his normal weight as a 4-3 DE.
