The Miami Dolphins, according to Myles Gaskin, are implementing a new playbook which is good as it shows progression for the coaching staff.
The Miami Dolphins running back was on a conference call with media members after a practice session today at Dolphins headquarters. He didn’t go into a lot of detail but it appears that Miami’s two-headed offensive coordinator situation will change from the Chan Gailey offense of a year ago.
The Dolphins had around 70 players at practice today. The media noted that the players negotiated certain conditions with Brian Flores that would eliminate some of the more demanding aspects of practice but they showed up to learn the systems that the Dolphins are installing or on defense where they continue to develop the system.
Hopefully, the Dolphin’s offense will cater more towards the strengths of Tua Tagovailoa. Under Gailey, who ran an offense more inclined to help Ryan Fitzpatrick succeed, Tagovailoa struggled at times and Gailey consistently didn’t call the same routes that he did with Fitzpatrick in the game.
Miami needs Tua to take a big leap this year.
It was only last month that the Miami Dolphins players sided with the NFLPA and said they would not attend voluntary workouts. That has obviously changed. The NFLPA is trying to force the NFL to change workout schedules and volunteer workouts.
Gaskin today said that the players wanted to be out there working out and learning the system. That is an important step to creating a great environment for the players. To his credit, Flores kept the practices light as promised.
