Report: Dolphins Have Expressed Interest In CBs Walter Thurmond & Tarell Brown

 

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have expressed interest in free agent cornerbacks Walter Thurmond and Tarell Brown.

  • Jackson expects Miami to add a third cornerback at some point.
  • Jackson adds that the Dolphins haven’t ruled out possibly re-signing Dimitri Patterson.

Thurmond, 26, has largely been overshadowed by Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, but he’s a much better player than a No. 3 option on most teams.

  • Thurmond does have some interest from the JaguarsBuccaneers and Redskins.

Last year, he appeared in 12 games and totaled 32 tackles, one sack, an interception returned for a touchdown, a forced fumble and a recovery. Pro Football Focus has Thurmond ranked as the No. 31 cornerback in the league this season.

Brown, 29, appeared in 13 games last season and totaled 32 tackles and a fumble recovery last season. Pro Football Focus rated Brown as the No. 32 cornerback in the league next season.
