Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida was hoping for more of a role with his new team, but hasn't exactly seen one yet. Breida hasn't been as involved with the backfield as much as he wants, but he says he trusts the coaches to do what they do to win, and he's not concerned about the number of carries he gets.
We'll revisit this as the season progresses, as I can't imagine he'll continue to be okay with this if it keeps up.
The training camp over-reactions are here. Just so you know. Keep in mind this is based off of just two padded practices thus far.
Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores was asked about the progress of his new quarterback Tua Tagovailoa earlier this week, and his response may not have been what Dolphins fans want to hear.
That being said, there are no preseason games this season, so padded practices are going to be the closest thing to 'the real thing.' Being a first-year player, and coming off of a big injury, Tua is bound to get over-scrutinized. I don't think this observation is a bad thing, and I don't think there is anything to worry about as of right now.
I would start worrying when another quarterback is out-performing him in camp -- Josh Rosen, perhaps? -eyeball emoji-
Another Miami Dolphin is opting out of the 2020 NFL season. This time, is wideout Albert Wilson.
He announced his plans for the season on Twitter.
Just yesterday, receiver Allen Hurns opted out as well, so the wide receiver room in the Dolphins' facility is dwindling.
The Miami Dolphins officially have their first player to opt out of the 2020 NFL season - it's wide receiver Allen Hurns.
Hurns explained his decision in a Twitter post.
Hurns explained his decision was made for family health reasons, citing the soon-to-be arrival of a baby boy.
Nothing but respect in putting family first, and doing what's best for himself. Please remember that when you're being a fake Twitter tough guy and responding "seems you've opted out for the past 3 seasons, brah."
Lots of questions are going around about how the hell the NFL is going to be able to get through a football season without any outbreaks of COVID-19 (see: baseball). Miami Dolphins safety Bobby McCain has an idea -- hold your teammates accountable.
McCain hit the nail on the head here, and he's right, but let's be honest -- this is easier said than done. We'd like everyone to follow the rules, but HELLO look at the United States right now.
These players are young people, and what have a lot of young people been doing lately? Let me answer that -- acting like the pandemic doesn't exist. I'd like to believe NFL players will be more mature than this because their teammates/opponents are those who will be at risk, but it's a stretch for me.
What we need is more players with not only the same mentality as McCain, but those who are willing to actually do it. And think before you head to the strip club and take a picture of yourself there.
