Quick Brandon, strike a pose!

Oops. Wrong pose if you want to make this team buddy. You saw what happened when the "Imperial Tuna" caught wind of Jason Taylor's metro-sexual part-time gig. He got the boot and he was a year removed from NFL Defensive Player of the Year title. As a borderline fourth WR and Special Teams Player, Brandon should be devoting all his time to honing his craft on the field if he doesn't want to be the latest victim of the ruthless Parcells' regime.

All this being said, London will likely stick. I still remember the hustle he showed during the horrific Baltimore meltdown last year in the playoffs when he ran down Ed Reed for almost fifty or sixty yards after one of his multiple INTs to knock the ball out of Reed's hands. Unfortunately, he only knocked the ball out after Ed Reed was a yard past the end zone. However, he displayed heart by never giving up on the play.
I have a feeling Parcells & Sparano noted that inspired play of determination as well. For now though, if he truly wants to remain a part of the Miami Dolphins, London needs to show his skills on the field, not on the catwalk.
