Vince Young, Michael Sam among early names in 2015 NFL veteran free agent Combine

The NFL is introducing the veteran Combine in late March. We have some early names for the event, but will these players have a legit shot at a roster spot?

2015 Dolphins free agents update following Hartline, Gibson release

The Miami Dolphins have released two wide receivers as they begin to make salary cap moves. We update the free agent list with those two moves. The Miami Dolphins have begun their offseason roster moves with the release of two veteran wide receivers. Cutting Brian Hartline provides the team with $3.15 million in salary cap space, while Brandon Gibson adds $3.26 million in space. The Dolphins need to continue the roster purge over the next few days to add more space if they want to be involved in free agency this year, so the list of players that have been cut by the team will probably...
