Notes from Dolphins minicamp

According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins rookie quarterback Pat White continues to overthrow passes. One pass went over a fence, while another hit Bill Parcells' golf cart.

Coach Tony Sparano attributes it to adrenaline and technique, but Sparano said one of White's best skills is throwing deep.

Sparano is still evaluating the Eric Green/Sean Smith/Vontae Davis cornerback battle to start opposite Will Allen. According to Sparano, each has made ''some plays and gotten beat in some situations.''

Green said he has been with the first unit every day except one that Smith handled.

Josh Cribbs could skip minicamp

Browns receiver Josh Cribbs plans to boycott the team's voluntary minicamp this week unless progress is made on his contract, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Cribbs, who made the Pro Bowl last season, signed a six-year extension in 2007, which is reportedly worth $6 million, including $2 million guaranteed.

Former Browns general manager Phil Savage promised Cribbs in training camp last season that the team would take care of him this offseason.

After Savage was fired, Cribbs received a call from Browns owner Randy Lerner saying that the team would still fulfill the promise. But Cribbs has made no progress with the new regime of coach Eric Mangini and general manager George Kokinis.
