Defensive end Robert Quinn was a two-time Pro Bowl selection and racked up 62.5 sacks in his seven seasons playing for the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams. While players are limited in what they can accomplish in offseason workouts, Quinn is already making a strong impressions on his new coaches and teammates with the Miami Dolphins.
It’s incredible how he bends the corner and his hips are two feet off the ground, but he’s running full speed around the corner, quarterback Ryan Tannehill said of Quinn.
Then, when the President first attacked the NFL and its players last September over what was at the time a tiny handful of protesting players, the NFL spent a lot of time talking to players but doing nothing to actually fix the problem.
The Dolphins continue to wait on Parker to break out. He has never had more than 57 catches, 744 yards and four touchdowns in a season.
I’ve been really impressed since I’ve got here with his work ethic, offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said. The guy has spent a ton of time here in the offseason…. He seems like a very professional guy that is trying to get better every day.
Ware is following in Charles Haley’s cleat marks. Haley worked with Ware when Ware played for the Cowboys from 2005-13, and Ware now is working with DeMarcus Lawrence.
As a pass rusher, you always think about consistency, Ware said. When you think about DeMarcus Lawrence, first, second, third year, now he had that big push last year. Now, it’s what have you done for me lately? It’s a new year. He has to look at it that way. What can you put in your toolbox this year to make yourself a little bit more consistent, because now you’re going to have that bull’s eye on you. But also how can you make the other guys better with your leadership? That’s going to make you a lot better inside the room, on the team, but also out there on the football field.
