Former Dolphin Could Help Packers

Merling was signed by Green Bay earlier in the offseason The Packers quietly signed Phillip Merling a few weeks after the Dolphins released the veteran defensive end. Based on what I read out of Miami, I was expecting the former Clemson star to be a cross between Jamal Reynolds and Justin Harrell. But after watching four Dolphins games from last season, I’m feeling better about...

Packers sign Phillip Merling

Phillip Merling was once a high pick of the Miami Dolphins, going with the 1st selection of the 2nd round in 2008, 32nd overall. However, Merling could never establish himself in a crowded rotation in Miami and never seemed to be comfortable anywhere in their 3-4. They cut him this offseason and today he found someone to take a flier on him, the Green Bay Packers. It’s no secret...

Dolphins cut Phillip Merling

The Miami Dolphins have announced they’ve released defensive end Phillip Merling after four disappointing seasons down in South Beach. Merling was drafted in the second round of the 2008 draft and has been a bust since he’s only been able to put together 3.5 sacks in his four-year career. I’m sure there’s a team that will give him another shot before his NFL career officially fades away.
