Dolphins | Gibson trying to prove himself in a deep WR field

Sun, 20 Aug 2006 06:58:45 -0700

Sara Rothschild, of the Miami Herald, reports Miami Dolphins WR Fred Gibson is trying to earn a spot on team's 53-man roster after spending last season on the practice squad. The Dolphins are deep at wide receiver, 13 deep, and Gibson knows that the team likely will keep about half that number on the active roster so he may be auditioning for a job elsewhere during this preseason. Gibson dazzled all week at training camp on the third team, exhibiting speed and seeming to catch almost everything thrown his way, but head coach Nick Saban noted the most important evaluation of the young players would come during games. Gibson followed up a stellar showing in the Dolphins first exhibition with another solid performance, catching two passes for 33 yards in Miami's 13-10 win Saturday, Aug. 19. The preseason has re-energized Gibson, who said it's closest feeling to his college days.
