Dolphins will continue looking for roster versatility during minicamp
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant,Authentic Dan Marino Jersey, used almost exclusively as a slot/inside receiver last year,Authentic Jay Ajayi Jersey, and Kraig Urbik played center and guard., played on the inside and the outside during the recently-concluded organized team activities. Safety Michael Thomas was used at nickel/slot defensive back
The Dolphins frequently cross-train players during practice. That’s part of their philosophy under coach Adam Gase. It raises a player’s value and helps develop quality depth in a sport in which versatility is a must.
Expect the cross-training to continue during this week’s three-day minicamp that begins Tuesday at the team’s training facility in Davie.
Minicamp has expanded work limits over OTAs. Afternoon or nighttime walkthroughs are permitted and teams get longer meeting times.
The extra time allows the Dolphins to evaluate things further before they take their six-week break and start training camp at the end of July.
“In OTAs sometimes,Authentic Jarvis Landry Jersey,” Gase said last week. “Your window is so small. Those meeting times … they go by quick. You want to watch every little thing and teach all the stuff that we have. You’re constantly playing catch up.,Jarvis Landry Jersey,Jay Ajayi Jersey, it’s tough
“The minicamp allows you to really take that deep dive and help your players as much as possible.”
Many forms experimentation,Dan Marino Jersey, will continue during minicamp., aside from cross-training
