08:08 AM ET 02.25 | Jeremy Shockey is no stranger to Miami. The former Hurricane standout lives in South Florida during the offseason and comes home at every opportunity. It's possible the former Pro Bowl tight end could call South Florida his permanent home pretty soon. According to a league source Shockey, who was released by the Saints earlier this week to avoid paying him the $4.2 million he was due, took and passed a physical for the Miami Dolphins, which are in the market for a seam threat tight end to complement Anthony Fasano. "If you know me you know I'm going to look at every acorn that falls off the tree. He's another one so I'm going to do that," General Manager Jeff Ireland said of Shockey, who could be signed before March 3.

Talents or that mouth?

If he'd taken his talents with him when he went to New Orleans he might not be looking for a job.

One nut is the Niners and the other is Carolina, since they keep dragging along.

An underacheiver going to a team full of underacheivers. How touching...

I was thinking that could go Al Davis or Jerry Jones.

Too bad. The Saints had high expectations for this loser. What a disappointment.

The Saints or Shockey?

"I'm going to look at every acorn that falls off the tree"...is that another way of saying Shockey is a nut?

Take your pick..

The saints cutting Shockey was more of a financial decision, seeing as how they have a TE to replace him with. He had some great games this year, so i wouldn't be so quick to call him a failure.

I could see this happening....he'd be a good fit there.
