No better time to restart the Miami Dolphins Machine of Hope than about 24 hours after another playoff-less season ends, right?

Enter Tyler Davis, your newest Miami Dolphins wideout/corner/returner signed fresh out of the German Football League (the what?). The former cornerback out of Missouri Valley has apparently been tearing said league to shreds the last two years and he becomes the first GFL-to-NFL player. He comes via the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes, where he pulled in 94 catches for 1733 yards and 24 touchdowns last year.

His mesmerizing highlight tape is down below but please temper the expectations because it appears he was playing against toddlers. Then again, he could always be the next Cam Wake in the sense of going undrafted, playing in an obscure league and then becoming an NFL star. Tyler’s bloodline is strong, as his father Clarence played running back for the raiders in the 1970s.

All we have is hope.
