Showing up and then standing out at the Miami Dolphins’ rookie orientation paid off handsomely for Florida Atlantic University linebacker David Hinds today, as the Miami native was signed to a contract following a successful tryout.
The Dolphins also waived rookie free agent quarterback
Last year it was offensive lineman
“The hard work, attitude and attention to detail David showed during the weekend rookie orientation paid off,” Ireland said. “As a player invited to try out, David approached the whole process, highlighted by his work ethic during practices and meetings, with the type of characteristics that we are looking to add to the Miami Dolphins.”
Hinds, who starred at Miami-Edison High School before moving onto FAU, finished his career with the Owls with 238 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He appeared in 45 games for the state school and becomes the first FAU player to sign a contract with Miami.
