Found April 06, 2012 on Phin Nation:
The Miami Dolphins made an under-the-radar signing on Thursday, agreeing to terms with former Vikings safety, Tyrell Johnson.  Johnson was a 2nd round pick of the Vikings in 2008 and adds depth to the safety position.  It’s likely Johnson will come in and compete for either the starting strong or free safety spot with the [...]

Dolphins give ex-Viking Johnson a chance

In 2008, the Minnesota Vikings traded up in the second round to take Tyrell Johnson. Now, after four lackluster seasons, he is moving on.

The Vikings traded a fourth-round pick to move up and select Johnson with the 43rd choice in 2008. Johnson started all 15 games he...

Ex-Vikings S Tyrell Johnson signs with Dolphins

Safety Tyrell Johnson has signed a contract with the Miami Dolphins as a potential replacement for departed starter Yeremiah Bell. Johnson, a second-round draft pick by Minnesota in 2008, started 15 games for the Vikings in 2009 but a total of only five over the past two years.

2012 NFL Draft: Miami Dolphins Planning On Trading Up in Draft?

“With the eighth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select…” Seriously. Does anyone have a clue in the world what this team is going to do in the draft? It isn’t as if anything else they have talked about doing over the past couple of years has panned out for Miami. If it did, then either Jim Harbaugh or Jeff Fisher would be coaching Peyton Manning...

Did the Miami Dolphins really “miss out” on head coach Jeff Fisher?

The Miami Dolphins have been under the microscope this offseason, getting tagged with the “dysfunctional” label by several pundits.

The possible moves by the Dolphins this offseason have been...

Is Donovan McNabb Tainting His Legacy?

I’m sure that being benched and eventually cut in favor of a rookie was not the way that Donovan McNabb planned the twilight of his NFL career to play out. But after a tumultuous divorce with the Redskins the prior year and a not so graceful exit in Minnesota, grouped together with the former Eagles great taking shots at Mike Shanahan, one has to ask the question...

Naughty Nurse: Minnesota Vikings long recovery

The Minnesota Vikings collapsed so quickly in 2011 that our Naughty Nurse had to rush in with a crash cart. We should have taught her that the paddles go over the heart, not the ears. In either case, the Vikings have a long road to recovery after a 3-13 season.....

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe didn't mince words while sharing his thoughts on former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' speech prior to the team's playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Just last week, former Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb made a guest appearance on ESPN’s First Take and stated that he believes that quarterback Robert Griffin III will be a bad fit in Washington, if they end up drafting him.
