THE DAILY TAKE

The Daily Take will be posted every weekday at 3 p.m. and will offer our opinion on a pertinent topic involving the Dolphins. Today we discuss the performance of Dolphins players in NFL Europe.

You may have noticed that two Dolphins players, WR Kendall Newson and DE Lamanzer Williams, earned NFL Europe Player of the Week honors for their performances last weekend.

That's certainly encouraging news, but you always have to keep in mind the level of competition over there.

That said, the Newson news was good to hear. Remember that Newson played at Middle Tennessee a couple of years ago with another wide receiver, Tyrone Calico, who many wanted the Dolphins to draft in the second round this year.

Also remember that Newson was the more productive of the two at Middle Tennessee.

Newson caught three passes for 100 yards and also returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown last weekend. And we all know how long it's been since the Dolphins had one of those in the regular season.

As for Williams, all he did was record four sacks last weekend.

Given the Dolphins' depth at defensive end, it's difficult to envision Williams making the active roster, but Newson certainly has a chance because the Dolphins don't have anything locked down at wideout past Chris Chambers, Derrius Thompson and James McKnight.

And while we're on the subject of wide receiver, another one doing well in NFL Europe is Robert Baker.

He's another guy who might have a shot at landing a roster spot.
