Catching up on the Dolphins happenings of the earlier 7 days:
PFFT to PFF
We are going to start with some thing that essentially didn’t include any Dolphins gamers, nevertheless that is just why it was noteworthy.
Professional Football Concentrate, by way of author Sam Monson, manufactured its position of the leading 50 players in the NFL suitable now and the list included — get this — not a single Miami Dolphins player.
And that is very little limited of wholly odd, thinking of they had been five cornerbacks on the list of major 50 players and not a single of them was Xavien Howard, who transpired to be one of two cornerbacks selected to the AP All-Pro 1st team in 2020 and, oh, also was third in the NFL Defensive Participant of the Calendar year voting final period and tops among the cornerbacks.

X MARKS THE Place
Immediately after lacking the Dolphins’ mandatory minicamp, cornerback Xavien Howard was again on the discipline Friday and Saturday for a soccer clinic in the Turks and Caicos islands.

With the offseason program around for veterans, it can be camp time for a lot of NFL players.
Jogging again Myles Gaskin did just that Sunday early morning, internet hosting a a few-hour camp back again in his home state of Washington.
Earlier in the week, he joined fellow UW alum Salvon Ahmed in catching some passes for superior university quarterback prospect Jake Tiryakioglu.
In South Florida, rookie defensive finish Jaelan Phillips built it a issue to stop by the University of Miami for the school’s Paradise Camp, where by he was joined by fellow previous UM defensive lineman Calais Campbell and Gregory Rousseau, like Phillips a first-round decide on in the 2021 NFL draft.
STEPPING UP FOR SURFSIDE
We shut by providing props to linebacker Jerome Baker and rookie vast receiver Jaylen Waddle for executing their component to help in the aftermath of the tragic making collapse in Surfside, a very small town just north of Miami Seaside.
