Dolphins | Barnes appears to be ahead of Beasley at fullback

Tue, 22 Aug 2006 06:05:55 -0700

The Miami Herald reports Miami Dolphins FBs Fred Beasley and Darian Barnes are locked in a competition for the team's starting fullback spot, and part of the edge Barnes enjoys might be a result of advice he got from Beasley. Before training camp started, Beasley was considered the better receiver, whereas Barnes was considered the better blocker and special-teams player. Beasley gave Barnes some advice on how to catch the ball better. Head coach Nick Saban told Barnes the Dolphins needed to see improvement in the receiving portion of his game and the coach was impressed with the player's response. Saban noted that Beasley showed improvement in the second preseason game and has done a good job.

Dolphins | Saban discusses fullback competition

Sun, 20 Aug 2006 18:45:27 -0700

MiamiDolphins.com reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban discussed the fullback competition between FB Darian Barnes and FB Fred Beasley. " I think it's a good competition. I think both guys are doing a lot of good things and I think that's healthy to have on your team. We're not ready to draw any conclusions about where anybody is. I think both guys have shown very well for us this year at times. Fred (Beasley) played better in this game than the week before and made improvement. Barnes has been an excellent blocker for us and has toughness. Both guys make a contribution. We want to keep the best players that we can, but there are other things that are considered in that too their roles on the team, relative to another position, special teams and all that kind of stuff. You can't look at just that position myopically and not look at it a little bit more from 1,000 feet, relative to how we would decide to keep people at that position."
