Was hoping they would invite edge/DEs for a visit, but if these guys can rush the passer, fine.

Seems like ST support at Best by looking at their Stats.

I think we are already at 90 so a signing of either will require another Roster Move

I always hate visits like this right before start of camp. Screams to me a pre Camp injury to a current roster player or upcoming Unannounced Suspension.

Stephanie would be a girl. Stephane is a male. You don't pronounce the E at the end. I know, thats my name!;)

I think you're close, but off by a little bit.

I think they do these types of visits so that they can have up-to-date, current information on players they're interested in as potential replacements IN CASE an injury happens or someone doesn't fit in to the roster the way the front office thought they would. 

They're keeping their "free agent short list" updated in case they need it.

I understand that as well.  But with Camp Opening this week when I see this type of stuff specially both in the same Position triggers that fear of Milano Not Progressing, Someone getting hurt in personal workouts.  A suspension looming.

perhaps some middle-ground.  Training camp bodies so Milano can ease his way back into it, and not be overextended too early?

Some of these visits and signings are to improve the roster.  They can cut guys who have a 10% chance of making the roster and replace them with guys who have a 15% chance of making the roster.

They also help intensify competition in camp. Throw some guys in there...heat it up.

He played for Gase.  

 

Fairly good article:

https://www.thephinsider.com/2019/2/13/18222505/retain-tag-or-walk-stephone-anthony-miami-dolphins-linebacker-free-agency

Given his production back in 2015, it’s clear that Anthony is best suited to be an inside linebacker moving forward. He’s instinctive, athletic, and has the track record to prove he could be a valuable contributor. However, that same track record also portrays a player who has suffered numerous injuries and has failed to adapt to the needs of his defense. I don’t see Anthony receiving anything more than a short term prove-it contract from any NFL team.

I would actually love to sign to see them sign Bynes in the event that Edmunds doesn't quickly improve his recognition skills. It would take some creativity on McDermott's part to swap Edmunds over to SAM, but that's kind of his job.

Not sure what they got going on at OBD, they just signed another offensive lineman for whatever reason

Probably because one is on pup list.

Yeah but I’m sure the other 15 could hold it down

Bynes could possibly be a good addition. He doesn't possess thrilling combine numbers but he is instinctual and comes ready to play.

Anthony has a good size/ straight line speed combo as a middle linebacker, but has been criticized for a lack of pass coverage ability.  Bynes is a journeyman.
