Dolphins | Free Agent Notes

Thu, 12 Apr 2001 23:20:54 -0700

Alex Marvez reports for the Sun-Sentinel the market for Miami Dolphins free agent S Brock Marion and OT Richmond Webb continues to dwindle.

The Colts are not expected to sign anyone until after the NFL Draft. Miami coach Dave Wannstedt said he told the agent for Marion that at this point the Dolphins are not in any position to do anything with Marion. That could change after the draft. Webb received some interest from Denver, but that interest may have ended with Wednesday’s signing of Jaguars OT Todd Fordham.
