7 Players Signed

According to the team's official website, 7 players were signed on Tuesday. They are:
  • DT Steve Fifita
  • LB Akbar Gbaja-Biamilla
  • QB Gibran Hamdan
  • LB Bobby Iwuchukwu
  • K Matt Prater
  • TE Jason Rader
  • WR P.K. Sam
Both Rader and Sam had seen time on the Dolphins practice squad, and Fifita was with the team during training camps. Both Fifita and Sam will be allocated to NFL Europe this spring.

Gbaja-Biamilla played two years with the Raiders and last year he played for the Chargers. In San Diego he played in three games recording only one tackle. Hamdan last played in the 2003 season for the Redskins. He played in one game, going 1 /2 for 7 yards. None of the other players have NFL game experience.

I don't see these guys being anything more than training camp fodder, with the possible exception of Rader. He showed some potential this past preseason, and may be able to challenge for a backup spot.
