Apparently, Brandon Marshall is an equal opportunity punter. After booting a ball over a fence after a dropped pass in Monday’s workout, Marshall punted one a short distance Tuesday morning after making a catch.
Of course, Marshall did the same thing after a drop in Denver last season and it became a major story, one in a long series of missteps that ultimately got him traded to Miami.
Marshall caught 3-of-4 passes thrown his way in a practice that heavily accented offensive execution. The other was knocked away by cornerback Vontae Davis.
Linebacker Tim Dobbins and running back Patrick Cobbs returned to practice after missing the majority of workouts in recent days, Dobbins making a nice play to disrupt a pass to Ricky Williams. WR Greg Camarillo and RB Tristan Davis missed the workout but did quite a bit of work on the side, riding stationery bikes, jogging and pushing a blocking sled.
Chad Henne was up-and-down in the drills, looking sharp on one series in which he went 4-for-4 passing, completing passes to Marshall, Williams and two to Anthony Fasano, but ragged in another in which he was high on back-to-back throws to Brian Hartline.
Dan Carpenter was 6-for-6 on field goals from 38 yards but was wide left on one from 41.
We’ll come back with more after coach Tony Sparano holds his daily press briefing at 12:30.
