The Miami Dolphins are bringing in a few safeties for workouts today. Reports indicate that they’re at least going to meet with James Ihedigbo, Major Wright, and Sergio Brown.
Ihedigbo is 32 years old, and he got his start with the New York Jets back in 2008. He played there for two years, spent a year in New England, joined the Baltimore Ravens for two seasons, and then spent the last two with Detroit. The only year that he has ever started all 16 games was in 2013, with the Ravens. He has eight picks and 386 tackles in his career.
Wright was brought on by the Chicago Bears back in 2010. He has also only started 16 games once in his career, and that was in 2012. After he left the Bears following the 2013 season, he played for the Tampa Bay Bucs for two years. He has nine career interceptions and 326 tackles. He’s four years younger, at just 28.
Brown is also 28, and he started with New England back in 2010. He’s never started all 16 games in one season, and he’s actually only started 15 out of 86 games in his career. He has the least experience of the group, and his stats reflect that. He has just 138 tackles and one interception in his career.
The Dolphins have been making some headlines lately and are trying to keep their momentum going, but they recently found out that safety Reshad Jones is done for the year. Miami’s defense already ranked near the bottom of the league with him, and he had the second-most tackles on the team.
