Josh Rosen trade talks stagnant, Dolphins could draft Drew Lock

Josh Rosen trade talks stagnant, Dolphins could draft Drew Lock Earlier on Friday it appeared that Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen was headed to the Miami Dolphins. While that might very well still be true, ESPN’s Josina Anderson suggests that talks involving the Cardinals and Dolphins are stagnant. Trade talk update: At this minute I’m told “everything still stagnant” on the #Dolphins #Cardinals front with Josh Rosen. These situations can be fluid though. — ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) April 26, 2019 Meanwhile, Anderson’s colleague over at the four-letter network, Adam Schefter, reports that Miami will choose between Rosen and Missouri product Drew Lock when on the clock with its second-round pick.

MIAMI - Former University of Miami running back Mark Walton, cut by the Bengals in April after his third arrest in less than three months, might get a second chance at pro football.

Walton was among the players trying out for the Dolphins during Friday's rookie minicamp.

Walton's status in the league is limbo after Miami-Dade cops arrested him on felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving. That was the carnage from Walton's high-speed car chase with cops on the night of March 12 in North Miami-Dade.

Hundreds of dead dolphins wash up on French coast

Hundreds of dead dolphins wash up on French coast A record number of dead dolphins have washed up on France's Atlantic coast in recent months after being caught in fishing nets, the Pelagis observatory said Thursday. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); "We've had around 1,200 small cetaceans along the coast" of the Bay of Biscay, of which more than 90 percent were common dolphins, biologist Olivier Van Canneyt told AFP.

Walton ran after police pulled him over - and even shrugged off a blast from a Taser - leaving behind a BMW containing 14 grams of marijuana, a 9mm carbine rifle and several fully loaded clips, according to police reports.

Three weeks later, authorities formally charged Walton. A few days later, the Bengals cut the former Miami Booker T. Washington High and UM standout.

"It's important for our team to get off to a fresh start as we begin the 2019 season," Bengals coach Zac Taylor said at the time. "For that reason, we felt it best if we move forward without Mark Walton. We hope his situation gets resolved, but we don't want to take anything away from the good work that so many other players have already begun to demonstrate."

The organization's patience was up. Walton was in February on a charge of misdemeanor battery after police said he got into an argument with a couple at his Brickell condo. He is also awaiting trial on a January misdemeanor marijuana possession arrest.

Dolphins sign Xavien Howard to record 5-year extension, report says

Dolphins sign Xavien Howard to record 5-year extension, report says The deal reportedly includes $46 million in guaranteed money and makes Howard the highest-paid corner in the NFL. According to ESPN, Howard is also getting $17 million per year over the first three years of the deal. He was entering the final season of his rookie contract in 2019 with a base salary of $1.28 million.

Walton, a fourth-round pick in 2018 by Cincinnati, rushed for just 34 yards on 14 carries as a rookie, appearing in 14 games.

He topped 1,100 yards as a sophomore at UM, but went pro after an injury-shortened junior season.

Should the Dolphins sign Walton, he would presumably be subject to punishment by the league.
