  2. When the Dolphins selected Oklahoma defensive tackle Jordan Phillips in the second round of the 2015 draft, the chatter started immediately. Said Mike Mayock: "Jordan Phillips has first round ability all over him. He can dominate at the point of attack, he controls the run game. He reminds me of Terrance Knighton. People question his football character, which is why he's being selected in the second round and not in the first." Phillips, who, with a September 1992 birthdate apparently was named after NBA star Michael Jordan, has tremendous physical talent that allows him to pull off feats that could well be called Jordanesque. How many 6'6", 335 lb athletes have you seen do a backflip? Because he plays on defense during an era in which offensive football is all the rage, not much was said when Phillips pumped out 28 reps at 225 pounds on the bench press at the 2015 scouting combine. However, a man whose arms measure nearly thirty-five inches in length being able to lift that much weight that many
  3. Reports indicate the Miami Dolphins have not made a contract offer to wide receiver Jarvis Landry. That is not an issue. Jarvis Landry is a Miami Dolphins wide receiver for 2017, just like he was in 2014, 2015, and 2016. In 2018, Jarvis Landry will be a Miami Dolphins wide receiver, no matter how much Twitter seems to think he is on his way out the door with the Dolphins. The panic over Landry’s status with the Dolphins exponentially increased on Tuesday when Damarius Bilbo, Landry’s agent, told the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson that the Dolphins have not made an offer to Landry and that there is now a deadline on contract negotiations. Deadline? Panic! Except, there is no reason to panic. The way Twitter reacts every time a mention of Landry’s contract is made makes it seem as though Miami is about to lose Landry. Except, Landry is under contract for this year. And, if a new contract is not signed before free agency starts next March, the Dolphins have the option to use the franchise tag on Landr
  4. The NFL offseason is always full of surprises, but this past spring seemed to be a bit more shock-inducing than others in recent memory.The New England Patriots won Super Bowl LI yet somehow got significantly stronger.

  5. When Jason Taylor is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer, he’ll be introduced by former head coach Jimmy Johnson. Interestingly enough, Johnson’s former boss Jerry Jones is also being inducted this year, which should be a unique experience for the former Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins coach.Taylor announced Johnson as his presenter in a video that he posted to his Twitter account. Johnson is responsible for selecting Taylor out of Akron in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft. He coached Taylor three years before retiring in 1999.“He took a chance on an undersized defensive end and never looked back,” Taylor said. “He gave me the opportunity of a lifetime.”Taylor took that opportunity and ran with it.Playing for three teams over 15 seasons, he finished his career with 139.5 sacks, 48 forced fumbles, 29 fumble recoveries, eight interceptions and nine defensive touchdowns. Taylor also earned six trips to the Pro Bowl, was voted as a First-Team All-Pro three times and was the
