CORNER MARKET

The Dolphins picked up a sixth cornerback on Monday when they added Lloyd Harrison, who had been waived by San Diego, but that doesn't mean they're done looking for help at the position.

The Dolphins were scheduled to have former Lions first-round pick Terry Fair in for a visit on Tuesday. Fair has added value because of his ability to return punts and kickoffs.

But the Dolphins are just one of several teams interested in Fair, who surprisingly was released by the Lions on Sunday.

Fair has started 10 games or more in each of his four NFL seasons, but he did miss the last four games of the 2001 season after suffering a foot injury.

As for Harrison, the plan is to take a good look at him at practice for a while to see how he compares with backup cornerbacks Jamar Fletcher, Ray Green and Omare Lowe.

Harrison is a good playmaker at cornerback, but he does not have great speed.

Another name that had been mentioned as a possibility was former Dolphin Terrell Buckley, but it's becoming pretty apparent that nothing is going to happen along those lines. Buckley had a pretty rough training camp and preseason with the Bucs, which is why they wound up releasing him.
