Last year Reggie Bush, Karlos Dansby, and Jake Long approached head coach Joe Philbin about starting a “leadership” council.  Davone Bess would get added to the council later.  This year all four of them are playing for a different team.  That however hasn’t stopped Joe Philbin from keeping the idea in place.  With players he actually wants on the team.

Six members of the Dolphins team have been voted to play the role of “voice of the locker room“.  Cameron Wake, Danelle Ellerbe, Ryan Tannehill, Mike Pouncey, Richie Incognito, and Paul Soliai.

The idea of this years council is Philbins and the team does not host a traditional “captain/s” like most teams.  These six will serve as that as well.
