Camarillo signs new deal; practice squad player added

This new regime in Miami has placed a premium on hard work and roster flexibility, and it backed those sentiments up by signing RB Patrick Cobbs to a new two-year deal last month and it continued to lock up key young players today by signing WR Greg Camarillo to a new three-year contract worth around $6 million.

This is a great move. The deal is very fair and it won't pose any financial problems for the team in the future.

Camarillo has really come on strong this year, and despite not having No. 1 WR talent, he's holding down a starting spot admirably. Provided Miami can improve its receiving depth this coming offseason, Camarillo could likely slide down to third on the depth chart, and he'd be just as likely to thrive in that role as he is now.


The Dolphins also filled out their practice squad today by signing DT Joe Cohen.
Cohen was drafted by the 49ers in the fourth round of the 2007 draft, but tore his ACL in the preseason. He was cut before the third preseason game last summer.
Cohen (6'2", 315 lbs.) played for the Florida Gators. Here is his page from the 49ers web site.

Here is what the team's practice squad looks like now:
  1. RB Lex Hilliard
  2. WR Anthony Armstrong
  3. RB Jalen Parmele
  4. LB Will Kershaw
  5. CB Will Billingsley
  6. WR Todd Lowber
  7. T Kirk Barton
  8. DT Joe Cohen
