Miami Dolphins: The team has called a news conference for Saturday, during which this year's inductees to the team's Honor Roll will be introduced. The Miami Herald reports the inductees will be former WRs Mark Clayton and Mark Duper, who will be honored during one of Miami's home games this season. Fittingly, the Marks Brothers will become the first players inducted since Sept. 17, 2000, when QB Dan Marino was honored during a game at Pro Player Stadium. Duper and Clayton lead Miami in most all-time receiving categories. Duper holds the mark for all-time receiving yards at 8,869. Clayton is second with 8,643. Clayton leads in total receptions (550), touchdowns (81) and 100-yard games (28). Duper is second in receptions (511) and 100-yard games (22) and third in touchdowns with 59. Atlanta Falcons: Georgia Tech RB Tony Hollings is in Atlanta today to take a physical for the team, reports the Journal-Constitution. The Falcons will get an opportunity to see how well Hollings is recovering from a serious knee injury that derailed his 2002 season. A converted defensive back who had never carried a ball before last season, Hollings led the nation in rushing after his first four games before succumbing to an ACL injury. Hollings, who has been cleared by renowned orthopedist James Andrews, will hold an open workout for possibly 20 NFL teams on the Georgia Tech campus Tuesday, and give any team interested the chance to see if he is worth a draft choice when the league's supplemental draft is held July 10. Most project Hollings to go anywhere from the third to the sixth round.
