Dolphins sign two new linemen, cut Gerald Ford

The Dolphins offensive line is one big construction zone, so why not shuffle the deck a little more the first few days into camp.

The team announced they had signed veteran Tony Hills and Steven Baker, who apparently are an upgrade over the camp bodies they have.

Hills has kicked around a bit, spending time with the Steelers, Broncos, Colts, Bills and Raiders, playing in 10 games with one start.

To make room for the new blockers, the Dolphins released tackle Michael Phillip and wide receiver Gerald Ford, who was signed in June.

With the bounty scandal in their recent past, there was no way they could avoid the bad publicity that came with pardoning Richard Nixon.

    And after Gerald Ford got waived, got on the first flight out of Miami, and then proceeded to trip and fall down the stairs exiting the plane.

    Ron Reagan forgot he was still on the team.

    I think every team is like a construction zone right now seeing what they have 4 days into camp. Not one team knows exactly whos going to be in every spot. Good but sorry try Gantt.

    I’ve heard better jokes from a Queen Latifah comedy skit.

    Hopefully Gerald Ford pardoned the Miami Offense before he left.

    Gerald Ford waived today, at the senseless age of 84.

    Is he the only President to not receive a single vote?

    Was he also eaten by wolves?

    The Dolphins originally signed Gerald Ford to replace Spiro Agnew.

    Gerald might not think the waiver jokes are so funny. He’s been at the Pearly Gates for years waiting for a call.

    Wide receiver? Says center and linebacker for Michigan, winning back-to-back National Championships and having his number retired.

    Someone sign this guy up!

    Good for Gerald Ford. I haven’t liked him since he pardoned Nixon.

    President Gerald Ford was a real good college football center and linebacker at Michigan. He might have caught a few concussions.
