Miami Dolphins Work out Former Louisville, Falcons Quarterback Adam Froman

Chris J. NelsonSenior Writer ISeptember 3, 2011

The Miami Dolphins have already waived quarterback Kevin O'Connell as part of their final cut-down today, but undrafted rookie Pat Devlin may not have the team's third-string job locked up after all.

Former Dolphins beat writer Alex Marvez (now of Fox Sports) reports the team recently worked out former Louisville quarterback Adam Froman, who was waived by the Atlanta Falcons two days ago on Sept. 1.

Originally attending Santa Rosa Junior College, Froman transferred to Louisville in 2009 and went 2-5 as a starter during his first season, throwing for 1,354 yards and six touchdowns against five interceptions.

A deep thigh bruise kept him out of much of his senior season in 2010, but he managed to throw for 1,633 yards and 11 touchdowns with just four interceptions in nine games.

Froman signed with the Falcons following the end of the lockout in July, and went 6-for-13 for 45 yards and an interception (all against the Dolphins) in the preseason. He was beat out for the No. 3 job in Atlanta by incumbent, and former Alabama quarterback, John Parker Wilson. (Interestingly, Wilson was later cut by the Falcons.)

While his relative inexperience at the Division I level and an elongated delivery are considered negatives on his scouting report, that probably contributed to his going undrafted, Froman is regarded as a strong-armed and accurate quarterback with an excellent combination of size (6'4'', 220 lbs) and 4.5 straight-line speed.

The Dolphins are in the middle of making their final cuts today, but this is a key reminder that not everyone who remains once the roster is down to 53 players is entirely safe.

Froman was widely regarded as one of the top undrafted quarterbacks available and could very well be under consideration to replace Devlin on the depth chart behind Chad Henne and Matt Moore.
