The Dolphins are using Marcus Thigpen as a kick-off returner primarily & as a RB, mainly in 3rd down situations. He is very much like their primary weapon, Reggie Bush, minus the Kardashian & Heisman Trophy! (Whoops ... Reggie don't have either no more) i think he sticks. He's a useful, versatile & valuable commodity.
Jerome Messam presents a greater problem. He's a tweener. The 'Phins aren't sure whether to slot him in as a FB or a RB.
That can work to his benefit or detriment either way. Flexibility or fall through the cracks. We shall see.
"Blitz21" Sorry about your luck being a Jets Fan. TiCats & Jets - Both win their respective championships half a year before training camp begins! (I shouldn't poke fun ... TiCats, Bills, Wpg Jets ... I understand "No Hope"!)
While we are on the subject of Ex-Cats getting their shot in the NFL, I will say this about Stevie Baggs which I know will be very unpopular. I've watched his preseason games & he looks very much like he did last year with Hamilton. He always seems the get into the camera shot after someone else has made the tackle. He's always glides right in making it look like he was in on the play but it's actually always someone else making the play. I'm sure he's a great teammate, a great locker room guy, perhaps a great PR guy to run the opposition defenses in practice. But I'm sure glad he's not with the TiCats this year. I think he was overrated to begin with & he lost a step last year in Hamilton. Perhaps the smaller field, predictable play & slower NFL game suits him better anyways.
