The Miami Dolphins made several roster moves on Monday. To begin, they officially announced the signing of OL Steven Baker and along with him, OL Tony Hill, a former fourth-round draft pick. To make room for the two of them, they released OL Michael Phillip and WR Gerald Ford. Neither of them had much of a shot to make the final roster.
In addition, the Dolphins released QB Brock Jensen late Monday evening. A source informed me that they signed Seth Lobato out of Northern Colorado as his replacement. Lobato is 6-6 and 230 pounds and throughout his college career, threw for over 8,000 yards and 53 touchdowns while running in six more. The knock on him is that he struggles with accuracy, never completing more than 58.3% of his passes in a season. He also threw 34 interceptions during his career. However, Northern Colorado ran an offensive system that over relied on vertical passing, forcing Lobato to attempt more long, high-risk throws than asked of most quarterbacks.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Lobato will in fact compete with Devlin for the third quarterback spot. Originally, the Dolphins wanted Stephen Morris from the University of Miami to take that role but he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars following the draft.
