Shoulder injury makes Smiley a risk

SHARE Shoulder injury makes Smiley a risk

Dolphins guard Justin Smiley is one player the general manager Jerry Angelo may be interested signing if and when he is released by the Dolphins.

The problem is, his fragile shoulder may be the reason why the Dolphins asked him not to show up for offseason workouts, according to a Miami Herald report. If he blows out the shoulder working out, the team would be responsible for paying his $2.9 million salary for next season. According to the Herald, the Dolphins believe his shoulder is “shot” and his playing days are near an end.

Smiley has changed agents, by the way. He is now represented by Drew Rausenhaus.
