So Laremy Tunsil has signed his contract, and the possibility of a long protracted holdout is averted. So far, he is behaving and saying all the right things, and acting all the right ways. We should all be grateful that both Tunsil and his agent have the wisdom to just sign the deal asap and start collecting their millions.
Head Coach Adam Gase did away with Rookie Training Camp this year and instead replaced it with Rookie Classwork. As has been reported in various media outlets, Gase apparently didn’t think that these young players needed to practice NFL football. Instead, he wanted to give them life lessons.
Gase has been around enough camps to know how they work, and maybe–possibly–he saw something over the years and said “If I’m ever a head coach, I’ll do
it different. I’ll do it better.” Let’s hope so. It just doesn’t seem wise to have the Jets, Bills, and Patriots toughening themselves up all week while the Dolphins’ rookie relax in the A.C. lounge.
The Dolphins also re-signed Cameron Wake, and I think that’s a good move. We have to assume that our team doctors are wise enough to determine if Wake’s leg is okay to play. Let’s hope he comes out with a passionate fire this year. And that’s never been a problem for him before.
And finally, the agent of our good friend Dion Jordan says Dion is not only ready to play, but will be the comeback player of the year. What qualifies as a comeback? I mean, if you play in a handful of games and then disappear for a year because of your drug habits, what are you coming back from. Gotta ponder that one.
