It looks like Dolphins Center Mike Pouncey could miss the entire first month of the season with a hip injury, according to several sources.
That is bad news by itself. But the news could get worse if the NFL decides to suspend Pouncey for teasing his friend Jonathan Martin last year.
In other offseason news, the 2014 Dolphin draftees have signed their contracts, and there will be no important holdouts. This is good news. Dion Jordan waited far too late to sign last year, and he ended up becoming a third-string benchwarmer. Did his delay in signing the contract contribute to his poor play? Probably not. But it certainly didn’t help him. It DID help Olivier Vernon, however. Nobody had Vernon on their radar last year. But when Dion Jordan played so poorly, Miami was forced to use Vernon. And he took over in a breakout season.
Be careful when you old out guys. You never get the money you want PLUS someone better steals your job…
