In the grand scheme of things, it probably wasn’t a very big deal. But Armon Binns’ touchdown reception in the Dolphins’ intrasquad scrimmage on the last day of the June minicamp did mean something.
It meant that Binns is all the way back from the knee injury he suffered early in training camp last summer, a knee injury that cost him the entire 2013 season. It also meant that Binns continues to find a way to get himself noticed on the practice field, the same way he did last offseason and in the first days of training camp before his unfortunate injury.
In the big picture, it means that Armon Binns continues to be a player worth watching.
“I’m just trying to pick up where I left off,” Binns said. “It was a tough blow. I was doing well. I just tried to pick up where I left off and be the same player that I was and better.”
Binns, who will turn 25 the day after the 2014 regular season opener against the New England Patriots, is still trying to establish himself as an NFL wide receiver.
Binns isn't on the fantasy radar right now, but at 6-3, 211, he is among the biggest receivers on the Dolphins roster, the story said. And what he showed last year in practice and this spring is the ability to use his size to his advantage, as well as the ability to make the tough catches.
