Let it be said that the Dolphins leave no stone unturned. Per Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) of the National Football Post, the team will work out former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Geraldo Boldewijn.
Boldewijn, a former teammate of cornerback Jamar Taylor from their days at Boise State University, would be an interesting addition to the roster and would have a chance to compete for a spot on the final 53-man roster come the end of training camp.
He has excellent measurables, standing 6'4" and 220 pounds, and running a 4.56 40-yard dash at his Pro Day, which considering his impressive size for a wide receiver, is pretty decent.
Boldewijn made himself known to the nation during the Atlanta Falcons stint on HBO's series "Hard Knocks" which followed the team around during training camp, and the story of an undrafted free agent who moved from Amsterdam to Boise quickly caught their attention.
It was very possible that Boldewijn could have made the roster for the Falcons last season, but a hamstring injury he suffered in practice just before the final preseason game caused him to lose his chance and eventually the Falcons worked out an injury settlement with him and cut him.
The Falcons coaching staff expressed their enthusiasm towards Boldewijn's potential, and stated several times that they would be keeping a close eye on him. The fact that the Dolphins are looking to kick the tires on him is encouraging, as his potential to be a big target for Ryan Tannehill to throw to is clearly evident.
