The Miami Dolphins know that their current core of pass-catchers won't cut it.
That's why it was no surprise to read the reports (via Ben Volin of The Palm Beach Post) that the Dolphins had held a workout with former Patriots receiver Donte Stallworth. He didn't make the cut in New England, but he couldn't be much worse than the Dolphins' receivers have been this preseason.
Stallworth may or may not like the idea of living in Miami; as Volin points out, his Florida driver's license is under a lifetime suspension after being convicted of DUI manslaughter in 2009.
But the Dolphins are hard up for pass-catchers and high-character guys like Stallworth, who has earned praise from the Ravens and from Patriots head coach Bill Belichick for his growth as a person and his handling of the situation.
