Hagan released, Frye signed; Crowder sticks up for Camarillo

The Dolphins released WR Derek Hagan today.

This ends the 2005 third-round pick's very disappointing career in Miami. After last season, Hagan was harshly criticized by his position coach for being too immature and unfocused. This offseason, it appeared as if he was finally turning a corner, as he was playing as a starter for much of training camp. Then, things just kind of fell apart, and Hagan disappeared down the depth chart. He was declared inactive for four of the team's games this season and only caught three passes.

Hagan's development in Miami had clearly come to an end, so it makes sense to get rid of him and get a player on the team who has a chance of progressing.

To that end, the team signed T Brandon Frye from the Texans practice squad.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Virginia Tech grad was Houston's fifth-round draft choice in 2007 and began his college career as a defensive lineman before being moved to the offensive line as a sophomore. . . Sparano pointed to Frye's position flexibility and being able to play guard or tackle as one of his selling points.

Just to take another shot at the idiot that is Karl Paymah, I'd like to point out Channing Crowder's assessment of him:
Who is he? He plays because Champ Bailey got hurt. I don't know Patin, Paytin, Poptil," Crowder said, purposely messing up Paymah's name. "Camarillo ate him up all day. He should be quiet and go work on his cover skills.
Nicely done, Channing, and way to stick up for your teammate.
