    Dolphins sign Marques Douglas to replace injured Merling

    The Fins signed Marques Douglas Friday to fill in for Merling (hopefully, replace permanantly). Douglas is 33 and a bit of a journeyman, but he is one of Nolans guys and played for Nolan in Baltimore and during Nolans stint as 9er's head coach. That's good so he should be able to hit the ground running since he should already know the system. Obviously, he is not a long term solution but he will provide depth and veteran leadership to a unit that lost some with Ferguson's retirement and Merlings injury.

    Anyone who has read my previous posts knows that I am pretty down on Merling, so I'm not going to misss him at all. I really hope they cut that knucklehead and move on.

    I saw a lot of Marques Douglas during his stint with the 49ers. He's not spectacular but he's very solid. I didn't see him make many mistakes. He might not make highlight reels but he stays at home and completes his assignments on each play.

    I am more than happy to have someone like that on the team. He should be able to help with Jared Odricks development.

    Thanks for the info!

    That's a good move with Nolan being the DC, I hope Merling is playing next year in the Florida Penal League, never been a fan of his.
