Dolphins awarded Armon Binns off waivers

The Dolphins have lost three of their last four games and they’ve failed to throw for more than 176 yards in any of those games, so they made a change to their receiving corps on Monday.

Miami has been awarded wide receiver Armon Binns off of waivers from the Bengals. Binns started five of the first six games for Cincinnati this season, but played in only two of the next six as the team shuffled up the depth chart. Binns, who joined the Bengals practice squad last year after failing to make the Jaguars in camp, wound up his Bengals tenure with 18 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown before being waived off the roster to make room for center Kyle Cook’s return from injured reserve.

Davone Bess and Brian Hartline hold the top two spots at receiver for Miami, but no other wide receivers have more than four catches for the Dolphins this season. Binns might not be able to produce much in a new offense this late in the season, but he might show the coaches enough to convince them to give him a longer look heading into 2013.

The Dolphins released cornerback Michael Coe to make room for Binns on the roster.

    Sounds a lot like Gates who they cut this year. Teach him the basic reads, let him run a go route and see if Tannehill can hit him on the fly.

    Great for Binns. Now lets hope Dunlap gets out and gets the money payday. Also Mays gets out.
    Andre gets a big payday in Houston

    Miami got a good one. I was hoping the Bengals would resign him, soon, after all the injury stuff shaked out. Go Armon!!

    Hated to see him get cut. Looked very promising at the beginning of the season. Good pick up by the Fins.

    Jeff Ireland continues to build a juggernaut.

    No stoppin’ ’em now!

    Typical Dolphins: garbage in = garbage out

    Thanks to this move, the dolphins will be able to finish the season 8-8.

    Something to watch down the stretch for Dolphin fans at least. Watching New England fall short again is the only thing left, really…

    Keenan Allen and the draft can’t come fast enough.

    Woo hoo another average receiver!

  16. scyankee9999 says: Dec 11, 2012 7:27 AM

    Remind me why we cut Gaffney? He had 3 in a short time and was averaging 16yrd a catch (and dropped one that would have went 80 and a td). I’ve supported Ireland so far cut by patience is starting to grow thin.
