WitP: Mauia Back, Bess, RGM, Ikaika, Ingram, Kia, Colt

Reagan Mauia was re-signed by the Arizona Cardinals. The Juggernaut is back!

The Miami Dolphins released their first depth chart today. Davone Bess is 1st team punt returner and 2nd team receiver. Ikaika Alama-Francis is 2nd team outside linebacker. Ryan Grice-Mullen isn't listed, but he has been healthy enough to continue auditioning for the kick return job.
Former Hawaii teammates Bess and Ryan Grice-Mullen shared the lead with five kick returns apiece during two separate periods devoted to that open competition. Eight players had at least one rep...
Also from that article, Davone Bess talks about picking up his fellow teammates:
Bess said he and the rest of the receiving corps, which was missing Greg Camarillo as he rested his injured groin, did its best to lift Marshall's spirits afterward.

"Definitely, we did. We had to," Bess said. "That's what teammates are for. When I mess up, he gets on me. When he messes up, I get on him. Same thing with all the other receivers. It's a team thing."
Mike Berardino of the Sun-Sentinel writes about the emergence of Ikaika Alama-Francis.
One of the top stories of this Miami Dolphins training camp so far has been the emergence of Ikaika Alama-Francis at strongside outside linebacker.

Not only has the fourth-year man from Hawaii trimmed down to 275 pounds, per team request, but he is justifying the faith new linebackers coach Bill Sheridan showed in him when he went to Tony Sparano and suggested IAF (sounds like a governing body for an obscure sport, doesn’t it?) move off defensive end.

This happened for Matt Roth in 2008, and he made quite an impact that season. Perhaps if Koa Misi proves not to be quite ready for a starting role, the man called “Ike” could step into the void.
From that article, here's an interview with Ikaika:

Jeff Howe of NESN.com has a Q&A with Jake Ingram.
NESN.com: Have you surfed up in Hampton lately?
JI: I haven’t surfed in awhile up here. Shoot, it's been a year since I've surfed out here, but when I was home, I was surfing. Plus, you've got all those great whites out here, man. What's going on with that?
Stephen Tsai talked to Aaron Kia, who was released by the Jets.

And Colt Brennan says that he'll play on Thursday.
Colt Brennan, newly signed by the Oakland Raiders, said he was told he will play in the second half of Thursday's preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Brennan said the Raiders have crafted a scaled-down version of the offense for him. The Raiders have five quarterbacks on the roster, but two of them of them — Charlie Frye and Bruce Gradkowski — have been unavailable because of injuries.
