The Miami Dolphins have wrapped up their Saturday practice and there were some good, great, and not so great moments. Here are some of the highlights and lowlights from today’s practice.
Tannehill to Wallace – The two connected on two deep passes during drills today one of which was described as a would be TD. Wallace has been telling the media that fans shouldn’t worry about the earlier connection problems that the two will figure it out. Wallace says Tannehill has crazy arm-strength and can make any throw. He says it just takes a little time to down the timing.
Armon Binns is still looking good and making a strong case for a roster spot and playing time. More will be decided when the pre-season games start.
Daniel Thomas fumbled again today during drills. He still is struggling with holding on to the ball and it’s something that the coaches are taking note of. Thomas can ill afford to continue this path or he may not have a job after the final cuts. No word on whether his work ethic has improved.
Dimitri Patterson and Will Davis are still showing improvement but are long shots to open the season starting.
John Jerry is still on crutches and his injury has forced the coaches to rotate lineman to find the right fit.
Caleb Sturgis is still nursing a groin injury.
Dion Jordan is slowly being worked into contact drills. He saw some action yesterday for the first time and saw more today.
Randy Starks who was franchised by the team has been relegated to the third team. Olivier Vernon has been playing very well and Jared Odrick has been playing well since being moved inward on the line.
Brent Grimes was the covering corner on Mike Wallace for both of his receptions from Tannehill.
Brandon Gibson dropped a pass today from Tannehill.
Dustin Keller has looked strong in camp thus far and is emerging as a top target
The Dolphins offense is starting to wake up but today’s drills were mainly 7-7 and 1-1 individual drills with some 11-11 drills as well.
