Miami was looking for a safety to replace Yermiah Bell. They contacted the agents for Donovan Darius and Lamont Thompson and both were asked to come in for workouts.

What Miami didn't know was that they were both in Oakland, and they wound up taking the same flight to Miami. They knew each other and conversation started and they both realized they were trying out for the same job.

That must have been interesting.

Alas, they both got the job, and Akbar Gajabiamillar was released.

Miami had it own problem because it became known that Miami signed them both, but they hadn't contacted Akbar to tell him he had been cut. A small public relations problem to be sure.
