Is L.Henry or Russell worth a flier?

Postby koffeeboy » Wed Aug 25, 2004 4:15 pm

Would you take a flier on Leonard Henry or Fred Russell in Miami?

If you could spare a roster spot without much else quality in the FA pool, would you go for one of these two yahoos, or are they not worth the time?

right now, no one knows what the hell is going on in Miami. I have heard that after the 3rd preseason game...Miami will make it more clear as to who they are looking to get. I would wait til then to make a pick up. But if you have to make a pick up now...I might consider James Jackson....I feel he might be running for Miami this year.

Henry is hurt, and Russell will only probably be returning kicks.

In a VERY deep league they are worth a shot, but I wouldn't expect anything at all from them.

I'd grab Sammy Morris over either of those two...

Profootballweekly.com wrote:Dolphins eyeing Broncos back

A league source told PFW the Dolphins have reviewed game tape on several backs and are intrigued by Broncos RB Mike Anderson. Anderson, who ran for 1,487 yards in 2000, is a rugged 232-pound back who could provide a between-the-tackles option for the Dolphins’ offense. Thus far, would-be-starter Travis Minor has 13 carries for 15 yards in the preseason.

PFW: How would Anderson fit in Miami?

Reynolds: Anderson has sneaky speed and very quick feet for a bigger back, similar to Stephen Davis. His best assets are run vision and feel for the run game in reading blocks and finding cutback lanes. He’s a one-cut runner who has to get downhill and square his shoulders; he struggles to create his own hole or make tacklers miss. He’s still capable — Anderson ran for 120 yards on 21 carries last week vs. Seattle — but hasn’t been tested over the long haul for several seasons.

With Anderson, the Dolphins would sacrifice the versatility they had with Ricky Williams and hoped to gain with Minor, who has good hands out of the backfield. Since his breakout season in 2000, Anderson has toiled as a fullback and short-yardage specialist and is unlikely to push diminutive Quentin Griffin or speedy rookie Tatum Bell for playing time at halfback. The Broncos see Ruben Droughns as an adequate fill-in at fullback and have much depth at running back with Garrison Hearst and several unproven but talented runners like Ahmaad Galloway and Santonio Beard.

Miami will get one more look at its collection of backs this week. The Dolphins still haven’t seen Leonard Henry and aren’t sure what they have in Minor, Sammy Morris, Rob Konrad or rookie fan-favorite Fred Russell. If a deal is consummated, Miami would wait until the end of the preseason, first making certain a notable veteran isn’t released. If not, the Dolphins could send a third-round pick to Denver for Anderson.
