Former Dolphins Players
While none of them are direct difference makers or explosive skill position players, there are a handful of former Miami Dolphins that will be playing in Super Bowl LVI.
The one who will likely play the most snaps is offensive lineman Isaiah Prince, who was waived by the Dolphins in 2019 after suiting up in just four games for Miami. He has stepped in to a starting role on the Bengals offensive line due to injuries, a unit that will face a tall task against Aaron Donald and company. His teammate Semaje Perine was also once played in South Florida, though it remains to be seen how much the running back will be used in the big game after his diminished role in recent weeks.
Perhaps one of the most recognizable faces will be one of the ones not wearing a helmet. Bengals head coach Zac Taylor got his start in the NFL as a member of the Dolphins’ coaching staff. He was the assistant quarterbacks coach in 2012, and was promoted to interim offensive coordinator after the firing of Bill Lazor. Taylor was also once a part of the Rams’ coaching staff before finding his head coaching home in Cincinnati.
