Dolphins pick up ex-Eagles WR Marvin McNutt

It did not take long for former Eagles wide receiver Marvin McNutt to find another NFL home. The Dolphins were awarded him on waivers Wednesday, according to the league’s transaction log.

McNutt (6-2, 216) was a 2012 sixth-round pick of the Eagles, who waived him on Tuesday. McNutt will compete for a spot in a Miami receiving corps that is seemingly set at the first three spots (Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson). Rishard Matthews, Armon Binns and Jeff Fuller are among those vying for roles beyond the top three wide receivers.

McNutt appeared in four games last season for the Eagles after being promoted from the practice squad on November 30. The Iowa product turns 24 in July.

  1. Nice move by MIA to pick up this kid. Philadelphia hardly used him last year and then put him in a position to fail on the punt team.

    Marvin is a great WR with instinctive ball skills for his position and a nose for the end zone. He should’ve been drafter higher than the 6th round and will prove that PHI made a mistake by not utilizing him during their nosedive of a season.

  2. Seems that with a good coaching regime Ireland has made some nice moves to accommodate their style. Fin fans should be excited this season.

  3. The Dolphins WR coach was Mcnutt’s OC in college at Iowa. Ken O’Keefe came to Miami when Joe Philbin got the job who also spent time at Iowa.

  4. Guy dropped more passes than he caught at minicamp. Chip sending a message. Just like Bryce Brown missed a blocking assignment and they signed Felix Jones. I watched Mcnutt close preseason he’s scared of contact good riddance.

  5. He was a 6th rounder, he dressed for 4 games and was released. He isnt that fast and doesn’t have great hands. He’s a below average player and certainly never had the skill set to be drafted in the 2nd round… That said, Mike Quick loves this kid. I wish him all the best

  6. You obviously don’t know marvin mcnutt. Hands is what he has. His only weakness is spead. Hes made quite a few incredible catches in games. He doesn’t have the speed to break away down hill, but he is good for 5-10 yard routes. He can make that bullet catch and has good vision of where he’s going after that catch. Plus he can break tackles. Hes gonna be an excellent red zone receiver. I’m glad he’s with okeefe, cause okeefe knows his value

    Youre trying to convince me that he’s plaxico burress? He couldn’t get on the field for a 4-12 team that scored about 15 points a game, If he were a viable redzone threat in the nfl, he would have played. This guy couldn’t beat out riley pooper. Had he been good enough to play, he would have. Unless you think Andy was intentionally trying to not score touchdowns.
