Marcus Thigpen is about to become the newest member of the Miami Dolphins.
Thigpen used the option year in his contract – which was signed before that window was closed to players with the new CBA in 2010 – to explore his NFL opportunities. It looks as if the Dolphins liked what they saw when Thigpen worked out for them in mid-December.
We'll know what chances Thigpen has of sticking around once the contract details come out, but with his speed, he could be a very dangerous Kick Returner, not unlike former BC Lion Stefan Logan.
Obviously, a tweet from a player is not irrefutable proof, but I would imagine that unless Kelley was given some really bad information, confirmation will be coming in the morning.
As of now, it looks like the Tiger-Cats most explosive player has taken his talents to South Beach. (I won't do that again, I promise.)
