For so many of these Dolphins’ veteran pickups, the question is what exactly are the Dolphins getting. With tight end Julius Troy Hill Womens Jersey Thomas, are they getting the player who caught 24 touchdowns in 28 games with Denver or the one who wasn’t a difference-maker in Jacksonville? With Nate Allen, are they getting the starting-caliber safety from his A.J. Green Kids Jersey tenure in Philadelphia or the middling backup of the past two years in Oakland? And with Lawrence Timmons, are the Dolphins getting the player who was consistently ranked by Pro Football Focus among the league’s top linebackers for several years or the one who was ranked 70th of 87 last season? “They signed me;. I don’t feel like there’s no dropoff there,” Timmons, 31, said Tuesday when asked if playing a ton of snaps over 10 seasons, and starting every game forPittsburgh the last six, has led Tom Waddle Womens Jersey to any decline in skills. “I feel I can cover, stop the run, can blitz the passer.” Those who evaluated Timmons in Pittsburgh the past two seasons have come away with different opinions.
