In Fields, the Dolphins get a punter with a big leg, as evidenced by Fields' nation-leading 47.4-yard average as a sophomore in 2004.
Fields' average dropped to 41.4 in 2005 and then 43.3 in 2006, but Fields explained the drop was a result of Michigan State coaches asking him to punt directionally to help out shaky coverage teams.
One thing for sure, Fields doesn't look like a typical punter at 6-5, 240 pounds. Fields, in fact, played offensive and defensive lineman in high school.
His first college coach at Michigan State, ironically, was Bobby Williams, the Dolphins' running backs coach until Cam Cameron released him from the staff a couple of weeks ago.
