Dolphins D, so far

Recommended Posts

It appears that when Flores said that he wanted a defense that was flexible, and could play multiple fronts, he wasn't kidding. All of the players in the secondary have been required to learn both CB and S. Bobby McCain commented on how much fun it has been to play S. The other wrinkle has been the movement of secondary into LB in certain packages. Both Fitz and McDonald have played "rover" at LB in pass coverage packages. It appears that Flores will risk using 7 DB's and 4 down lineman with no traditional LB's in certain circumstances. This is what has fueled the comments that Jones may hold out to be traded or released. Jones wasn't a fan of being moved all over the field, and this seems to be Flores bread and butter. On the D-line side, the players have commented that they are being moved between DT and DE based on the package, and that they will be required to know both positions. This is going to be a fun off season.

I love Reshad Jones but after what he pulled last season and seeing the youth movement and new focus on defense I just as soon see Reshad traded for something that will help the future. Jones is ageing and starting to get injury prone.

I'm surprised that there's not a playoff team with some cap space who wouldn't give at least a 4th rounder. Miami would eat a lot of his money anyways.
