I like all the other guy's were interested in except Howard Jackson, I dont understand why we need another RB when we have 3 guy's at the position already and we also have Avon Cobourne in Europe which I want in favor of Pinner...

Avon cobourne is a Dolphin. Pinner and Bryson are not very good. Both could be upgraded and should at least be challenged and have to win their positions on this team.

Legend, I think Bryson is an important part of our team. His is the best double threat guy we have. He is a nice change of pace guy, more elusive than KingJones or Pinner. You are just remembering two years ago when he lead the club in rushing with way under 1000 yds. He isn't a starter and should be one only in emergencies, but he is a more than capable backup IMO.

We cut Cobourne las September. The Dolphins signed him 1/19.

Bryson is a good backup and his YPC reflected his elusivness. He also had the 2nd most number of catches on the team.

He must not have shown much to the coaches. He was an undrafted FA but barely made it off the practice squad. I guess they just have more invested in Pinner (6th rounder I believe) than they did in Cobourne. I thought Cobourne had the better college career. Why'd he drop out of the draft?
