Free Agents Keep Coming

The Dolphins continue to restock their roster on the first day of free agency, with the latest reports indicating they have added four more players, including former Jacksonville wide receiver Ernest Wilford.

The other three are Tennessee defensive tackle Randy Starks, New York Giants linebacker Reggie Torbor and Jets tight end Sean Ryan.

Of the four players, Wilford clearly is the most established, having started 26 games the last two years with Jacksonville. Wilford, who played collegiately at Virginia Tech, averaged 41 catches the last three years.

His best season came in 2005 when he caught 41 passes for 681 yards (16.6 average) with seven touchdowns.

Starks also is an interesting pick-up. A former third-round pick of the Titans, he's still only 24 years old despite having been in the league four years. The 6-foot-3, 312-pound Starks started 36 games for Tennessee, including all 16 in 2005.

He's the second defensive tackle acquired by the Dolphins on Friday, following veteran Jason Ferguson.

Torbor started five games for the Super Bowl champion Giants and finished with 39 tackles.

As for Ryan, he played for Bill Parcells in Dallas in 2004 and 2005 before moving on to the Jets. He's mostly a blocking tight end; he has only nine catches in four NFL seasons.

The Dolphins might not even be done this weekend because they were expected to have veteran quarterback Josh McCown in for a visit, as well as Arizona linebacker Calvin Pace, a former first-round pick who had a breakout season in 2007.
