Free agent WR Nate Burleson will visit the Dolphins in the coming days.
The often-injured wide receiver would be a great compliment to Mike Wallace and take a similar role to what we saw from him when with the Lions. However, The Dolphins passing game isn't even close to being on the same level as the Lions, so there is no reason he should go into the 2014 season rostered if he does land in Miami.

Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
