Jalen Ramsey's agent requested a trade after sideline clash
"Jalen Ramsey who is to me extraordinarily annoying jalen Ramsey has requested a trade aid from the Jaguars over the fact that he got into it with his head coach Doug marrone because he didn't like the idea as I did did like the idea of Jacksonville going for the win on the road and doing the two point conversion. What Dean is this brand new. What do you make yeah. I wouldn't couch this this this situation and potential accidents in those terms. I mean this. This goes back to last year. Ramsey was disciplined by the team early early in training camp for some stuff that was going on between him and some some teammates and some comments that he then put on his Social Media you know he's one of these guys who who has lost it and let his emotions get the better of them time and again on the sidelines and that runs counter to what Tom Coughlin stands dance for although I would say that it's pretty much been hallmark of these jags teams under Doug marrone. You know the the the lack of discipline when the selfish play the the guys putting themselves before the team with some of the silly penalties and and antics you know we saw it again even in week. One with miles jackets ejected from the game refuses to get off the field. I mean that's been far too prevalent so it's been brewing between him and marrone and really the whole Organization for over a year and he didn't get paid after year three even though he would make the claim he's the best corner and football ethic. He thinks he's better than half the quarterbacks in the League to if you go back to g q article a year ago so this is not like a new development I had to. NFL personnel guys reach out to me last week and both say you know I guarantee you. Jalen. Ramsey is traded before the deadline and that was before this sideline blow up if you're not gonNA pay him and he's planning on already not looking at potential holdouts next year and if he's as much of a malcontent and you could get a lot for him and Nick foles out. I know you don't want to admit that you're rebuilding but you should have already started to rebuild and now you know foles hurt and it's going to be tough sledding and you may need a road to getting a young quarterback. It might be time to stock up on draft graphics. This is a guy you can get a lot for. There's a market for him right. There is a much the the attitude and some of the antics give others pause as well and it may it may end up limiting this this market somewhat and maybe they don't get you know every penny they should get in terms of draft capital and or players like he's a better player than Laremy Tunsil but they're not gonna get you know to ones in the two to go bill. O'Brien O'Brien only has a limited amount of draft picks he can't he can't trade you know every draft pick for the rest of that organization's history so I don. I don't know I think I didn't think a one plus something else for him for Randy. I do really awesome
"tunsil" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"You the most in week one from to herbert from and jordan love which which one of those guys to me create the most buzzer caught your eye. The most one one caught my eye. The most was actually the one on still kind of on the fence on and that's justin herber and he's got a huge arm. He's athletic. He's really smart in the first half of that game he and marcus arroyo the o._c. For oregon were on the attack and that's a really good defense against terrific d- line pretty talented on the back end to and i thought they were regressive in the second half and again. I don't know if it was a function of this really limited in what they were able to get open because because they're the receiving core is a little banged up. It's not great to begin with <hes> but they looked very passive and i think that's a concern sern because when you watch him as talented as you start to you know i made this comparison to people i know in the business and i was like i i don't know if there's a little bit of blaine gabbert in him where he's got all physical tools and you're like man this guy's not pro bowl or and he'd never play in the n._f._l. You wonder if he is i pick of the draft kinda kinda guy <hes>. Is there some josh allen. Is you know it's just i don't know oh <hes> so that's the part where again i was expecting him. I guess it was. I don't know probably like nine o'clock eastern. I'm looking at this is the first pick of the draft warsi and now now and then by the end of the night. It didn't look like it looks like the guy who struggled against michigan state who has a really good defense to struggled on. Some of the other big stages struggled on the road so <hes> that's the one i was most intrigued by because the other guys were were especially to a great receivers. He's in better shape now. No doubt about it. I was lighting up inferior. Physically i think he's he's he special. I mean there's no doubts on him. The one i said the one i keep going back on his justin. I think he's kind of thing the point i'm with you on on herbert to me. Josh allen was kind of crept in a little bit but even josh allen i would say just maybe a little bit more instinctive and reactive. I just feel with herbert man even like the stanford game last year he can look unbelievable for these stretches than all sudden. He just kind of loses. It loses the feel just some of the reaction stuff. That's almost backyard football. You want to see some of that. Just natural instincts takeover and i know it's this this is nitpicking and and i know some people think it's silly but it just bothers me on the very last play of the game that you don't have enough. You'll for the football that you put that. I think ten yards out of the back of the end zone. I mean that just is just. I don't know that that bothers me because i feel for throwing the football that isn't that is at the goal line to two to three yards into the end zone and you've got a chance even if you don't catch it for tip up to catch it but the elite guys can control the ball to ten yards out of the back of the end tone yeah. That's the thing that was the issue. I'm watching the game with with my colleague brock. You're obviously a former n._f._l. Quarterback and that is not. It's not a hail hail mary that kid dorm. That's just the show and he makes that throw and i'm like man. I'm gonna put something on a line and then it's like give somebody a chance. I mean it was just it. Almost also look like was that wrapped in practice. You know it wasn't like he was at the at his own forty five and he just got up into it each and that's i'm with you on that. That was like just disappointing. Yeah no doubt <hes> i wanna ask you about to defense guys. I'm gonna let you get back to <hes> to baseball practice here. <hes> what can you tell me about. Terrell lewis <music>. I'm no he's had the injuries they're at alabama but man bruce when you watch alabama's defense and always you're going to see some freaky guys on that tide defense but he looks freak the all of them men that dude is a specimen and he is explosive. Yeah you know what he as long as can be staying healthy. I mean he was the guy i remember number a couple of years ago at the national title game you're around more of the alabama staff at that point just because they're all out in force so a little more comfortable to talk off the record at face and everybody's like that guy and it's funny because you know they have so many five star guys in that program sometimes the guy who might have been high for store or kinda gets glossed over and it's not because they weren't you know a big study highschool or a touted prospect. Just they get overshadowed in. That guy is a little different. I mean look you know guys who who may have run or you know like a reported four forty seven and a combine or vertical jump says but then can you talk to in this is your world you talked to n._f._l. Scouts look yeah when we had accused like a four six something or they're not quite i mean there's there seems to be able to nebraska but they're not quite right as what they were touted to be <hes> and this kid. It seemed like almost the opposite where you talk to people inside the program no no. He's really really special special each scott it. Just gotta stay on you know it was it was fun to watch him. Run around hopefully to stay healthy one more guy now. You've got a chance to see him in person person there and talk to the coaches having done that stanford northwestern game <hes> pulsing deebo. I liked him when i watched him over the summer. I didn't necessarily put him up with those. <hes> those top op couple guys when you look at the corner at l._s._u. And you look at the corner at ohio state but man i watched that game and i haven't got a chance to watch the tape yet bruce but i remember thinking like whoa no yeah he. It looks like he belongs up there. In that class pulse in absolutely duane akina who is cranked out more he leaves defensive backs probably not any other coach working in college football right now now from his days at arizona at chris mcalister had all those all those earl. Thomas michael have all those guys at texas and he puts you. You know this is possible depots third year he puts all right in there with mcallister and those other guys and what's interesting with him. Is you know he had told that. Akina kina told me last week he was. You know we move you know. Sometimes there's a guy who is such a lockdown corner and like you know we're gonna give shots and nichols to keep him kind of engaged not something they did with paulson this in training camp and they said you really really took me. He's a he's put on about ten pounds from last year and they said his body fat is drop op three and a half percent which crazy math. I'm not sure you're i could be able to pull that off of kind of diet. He made a big play made a big big picking back in the game on saturday. I think they're crazy. 'cause only had one <noise> all american defensive back in its entire history. That was tangling. I'm pretty sure our barring injury that policy but it's going to be the number the second one gas. John lynch wasn't an all american bruce. He was not obviously like richard determine who had a big splash in the n._f._l. Was was not at that level as a <hes> as a college player. I mean they've had some really good players. You've come outta there for good prose but this one was this one man it's funny because he was a lot of people have done a receiver was committed to notre dame but just once he got that stanford offer jumped at it and akina was telling me take them as both in camp we liked him weren't sure and then he goes. I went to watch him play basketball and a practice and he goes like he was a very good shooter but you're watching his flippers hips asia and move and i'm like oh my god. We've got distance one. I found totally in on this kid. Well dwayne like you mentioned is the best in the business when you <hes> get a chance to visit with him i love over the years and scouting getting a chance to talk with him about all different guys that he's coached and and he's a darn good evaluator as well as a developer there so that's <hes> that's that's big stuff there on paulsen and diva look for watching him the rest of the bruce skip active baseball practice buddy. I appreciate your time man. Oh always a pleasure to be here. We'll talk to you soon. Well there there you go back. <hes> bruce's always generous with his time even when he's out of the literally game <hes> giving us some nuggets there about some of these top quarterbacks as well as some intriguing defensive players the buck. I don't know if you're with me or not. I thought the star that we can wasn't a player. I thought it was actually a lincoln riley. Oh absolutely what the lincoln riley did and waited. He has gotten jalen hurts up and going. I think is another resume builder just past his resume. When you look at the game i i think <hes> looking at the game not only as a scout but as a fan and as a spectator spectator you're looking at the game and looking at jalen hurts you trying to envision how could jalen hers play at the next level. How can you be a pro is a legitimate n._f._l. Prospect and then what lincoln raleigh did is he gave a blueprint for how he potentially could play at the next level use a mix of his legs his arm make plays and do that and then you look at it and you're like like wow like just think about this guy in the last three years has at baker mayfield number one overall pick calum murray number overall pick. We don't know what jalen hers will be when it comes to the draft but the fact that you as an office of innovator can take our say three different style of quarterbacks and allow your system <hes> to steal be successful to me. That's a huge credit on the n._f._l. Level the only got it aca related to would be joe gibbs. Joe gibbs went to the super bowl with three different for quarterbacks and because he was so flexible in his thinking that he was creative enough to find ways to put those guys in situations where they play to their strengths. Lincoln riley on the collegiate level is demonstrating that ability and i think if i'm looking for a college coast to come to the league one of the first the things that i believe you have to have you gotta have adaptability meaning. I can take what is already here and can be like okay. This is what i have where here's what i'm gonna do with what we have until i can get all the pieces that are want and still willing games link rallies kinda showing that yes he needs some more seasoning seasoning in my mind when it comes to be ready for the pros but his innovativeness his creativity mankind of sets them apart for some of the other guys because not justice justice system is his ability to mod around what he has to me..
"tunsil" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"And now move the sticks with daniel jeremiah and bucky brooks everybody what's going on walker to the move the sticks d._j. And bucky and man all that time in the off season. We're we're trying to figure out what we're going to talk about. What can we do. Oh no shortage of topics for us to chop up today coma. You gotta love it. You gotta love like man. I think everything is better. When you have a deadline i think when you put a cut deadline or something like that like you get all the flurry of activity and i never anticipated what we were able to see the deadline just the amount of trades the amount on a people leaving places some of the guys that were cut some of the guys that were picked up after they were cut it has been a crazy crazy weekend and and don't forget you sprinkle a little college football lender and made it a very exciting weekend in no doubt and that's the ground. We're going to cover today. We're gonna talk about these. Two big trades involving the houston houston texans shipping out cloudy bringing in laremy tunsil to humongous trades. We'll dig into our thoughts on those deals. We're going to do a little college football football switching over to that side getting a chance to see the first full slate of games a lot of fun. We both had a chance to dig in. Watch them tape study what we what we saw from some of the top players there's in the country. We're gonna focus a lot on those quarterbacks while some other key players from the week and we got our good buddy bruce feldman. I had a chance to visit with bruce actually while he was out in a little league baseball game <hes> he was kind enough to join me earlier today and <hes> and talk about some of the top players in college football talk really about lincoln riley. Who would my opinion book. I thought what was the star of football weekend and somebody. That's going to generate a lot of discussion in the college as well as the n._f._l. Circle absolutely is a great time to talk about all these guys because i think the more that the college game infiltrates the pro game the more you have these owners and general managers ages decision-makers look into the game to see who can be the next big thing and even though we have all eyes on kingsbury. There may be some skepticism about him. I i do believe the way the game is going more gas or looking for innovators and the way lincoln rally put on a show with his third quarterback in three years. I think you have a lot of people are going to be knocking on his door and no doubt all right well. Let's let's jump right in here because it's rare. You have trades like this and the n._f._l. We we saw it last year with the khalil mack trade about this the same time and we see another one the guy who was picked ahead of him in his draft class at having cloudy he did not report for the houston texans would not sign his franchise which is tender the fact that they were unable to to make a move with him prior to i believe it's july fifteenth was the deadline meant that he could no longer sign a contract extension so just a matter of him signing the franchise tag and showing up the plane houston or signing it and allow himself to be traded and once that deadline had passed once he wasn't showing up he kinda got to call his own shot book where he was going to go because you want to train the dolphins that's fine. I'm not gonna sign my tender. You can't treat me so they had to find a team. He was agreeable to go to do that. Ended up being the seattle seahawks for really a small price talking about a third round pick in two thousand twenty backup linebacker jacob martin and arkadiusz just mingo kind of a a a swing guy can rush little bit be linebacker a little bit of a disappointment through his career <hes> but <hes> bring some athleticism to help the depth there for the houston texans. I guess <hes> just get your overall thoughts on this thing. Wow there's so many so many thoughts on these trade <hes> let me first say based on some intel and talking to people around houston <hes> the whole issue today being clowney and bill o'brien in the houston texans kind of centered around the fact that the texans didn't believe that cloudy was a great worker they had questions about his durability and his injury history and then his overall desire to be a great player. <hes> bill o'brien come from where he comes from having ties to the patriots organization having spent time there. He's used to a certain way of going about your business. Gazzetta professional guys that kinda relished the opportunity to do extra stuff extra work extra time into film room extra stuff on the practice field all of that and today cloudy wasn't a guy based on what i talked to you know based on reports that heard from people down there that just wasn't his thing being and bill o'brien had a tough time envisioning giving him a ton of money knowing that he wasn't going to turn around and be one of those model citizens jason when it came to work ethic and that stuff and so looked damian cloudy never has been a fan of training camp and all those things and so they knew that this was going to be an opportunity for him to be away but bill brown was just hell bent on. I'm not paying him big money. When i know he's not really that guy <hes> that is gonna take the money and elevators game he would rather just keep them on a one year deal and move on and so when this trade opportunity came up with the seattle seahawks he was more than willing to to make the deal and even though they gave up seven billion in cash to go with him in the third round pick holiday other stuff <hes> bill o'brien just did not want that kinda gas said into standard in the locker room. That's why he parted ways with yeah. I mean i think you hit on a lot of the key points there buck and and when you look at clowning it let let let me just say this way. It's possible to be a great player and also be a disappointment as crazy as that sounds but cloudy bucked the ceiling has been so high from him in the expectations so high while he's been i would say even a great player dominant against running a good pass rusher. He's never had double digit sacks ax. I mean you're looking at the sack totals. It's four and a half one year six nine and a half nine <hes> those are good numbers and easy great run-defender and he's had a chance to play the opposite or alongside one of the best pass rushers in the history of the n._f._l. In j._j. watt so you know you're going to get some opportunities to rush there but it is. It's it's fell l. short of what the expectation was for him. I think this'll be good for him. <hes> go to seattle even if it's just a one year rental for the sea hawks pete carroll will be good for him. He'll be able to get him gone on. I'm hoping is good been. I'm hoping we're going to see a more consistent cloudy and and give us fifteen sixteen year that you know he's capable april of with his ability it just hasn't happened there and and we look at the houston texans miscalculation was they thought he would show up and they would get him for this year and that didn't happen happen. He didn't show up in that change their plans and they had to do what they had to do now. They had to do it they had to do. I think this is also a great lesson for us. S cows d._j. People i don't really change right so the same questions that we have about today cloudy now we had those same questions that concerns when he was coming out of south carolina because remember last year there were people people that believed that he shut it down that he didn't really give maximum effort for steve spurrier that he was a guy that would milk injuries and he wouldn't show up and do all the things that you expect a high level player to do and he did flash but never really fully produce we saw the flash we knocked the helmet off and that kind of put them on the map we saw flashes of great athleticism and stuff but we never saw him become a refine rusher. We never saw him take his game up from good to great great when it came to technically and fundamentally dominating the position and so he does kind of leave you wanting more and now i won't say see that he is displayed because i don't think he's as good as a player but i do remember when we were in carolina we had julius peppers and you'll peppers was the second overall pick julius. Who's peppers got a bunch of sex but there was an internal feeling pamphlet. He could be doing this even more now. What so we overestimated. We underestimated like how hard it is to find someone who can do what julius was able to do and that's why they brought back at the end of his career because there was a greater appreciation for someone who fell out of beta could get you twelve to thirteen fourteen sex. The difference is davy. Cloudy isn't quite julius peppers level when it comes to his ability to get to the quarterback. Julius was more refined with clowney what i see as a raw athlete whose explosive he's powerful but he still it doesn't have a plan for getting to the quarterback and i don't know if you can teach somebody to have a plan for five years into the league. I do know that pete carroll loves loves. Athletic is with instincts and he'll trae does traits over anything else so we'll see if it works for him but seattle has proven. They're not afraid to duties one year rentals. They did it a couple of years ago. Where sheldon richardson it didn't work out long-term but for year this clown can do gives them a top hash in a league where you need pass risk did not quarterback now yeah. It's a it's a good move. I think by john schneider and he's he's getting a lot of praise for what they're able to pull off here. In the limited amount they had to give up to bring in somebody like cloudy. Now you go back to having frank clark in the decision. They made to move on from frank. Clark ended up trading him <hes> for picks one of which ended up in l. j. collier their first round pick on fortunately hasn't been healthy chintzy much of him but now you're kind of got a committee of guys now with l. J. collier cloudy and they are able to get a couple of other players players ziggy so well yeah. They got some money for my only thing. Though book is if you look at the collection those were a lot of players. There's players. We talked about cloudy. Hopefully hopefully finding that level. Frank clark's better than all of them. Well you know what he is a better football player right then all those guys the thing. Is you know what you have in front clark like you. Don't know what you're going to get from judean cloudy inzaghi <hes> both guys have what injuries typically you like to trade the homegrown thing for the unknown especially when you draft a player typically the premises to draft develop and resigned whatever issues they had with frank clark. They believed they can get more and so. They have three guys trying to do the job. They're frank clark dig. We will see how it turns out but you're right. Frank clark is a really really good football player. <hes> frank clark is a better football player than we've seen from both of these guys at their best <hes> so we'll see how it works out but kudos to them for being able to get. Maybe maybe a three for one deal in terms a hall. I mean look you let go of frank clark today via clowney ziggy ansah for less than what you would have paid for for the franchise tag if it works so you like an economic genius but we'll see what it looks like to me again the creativity of john schneider. That's what what what what impresses me. He's got a plan and he's able to maximize his opportunity there are let's get to the next trade here but because this is a huge one <hes> texans make their trade for laremy tunsil with the miami dolphins the the the texans receive laremy tunsil kenny stills fourth round pick in twenty twenty sixth round pick in two thousand twenty one. Here's what they gave up. They gave up their first round. Pick in twenty twenty twenty and their first round pick in twenty twenty one their second round pick also in two thousand twenty one and then some some fodder for the back end of the roster there for the dolphins <hes> tackle jillian davenport and corner johnson batum osa who is really a special teams player so again. I reacted this deal was what man i cannot believe lead. The miami dolphins partnered with something that we say is. Maybe the second most important position maybe third most important position in the pecking order of team building a left tackle. Oh it is hard to find a left tackle that emerges as a great tackle in the league labs also has been all of that laremy..

Texans' Jadeveon Clowney 'Adamant' About Not Wanting Trade to Dolphins
"Miami herald has some juicy details on the dolphins. Texans trade negotiations for j leaving home. Not we've not discussed houston reportedly offered cloudy and a first round pick to miami now they wanted laremy tunsil back left tackle so the dolphin said no but the report said multiple dolphins players would revolt if the team traded tunsil and there could be a full on mutiny so they wanted allotted tunsil get cloudy and i and the dolphins said no
"tunsil" Discussed on The Phinsider
"Well. The dolphins have been trying to shop him over the past several weeks even before the saga with stephen ross and jay z starting to come down so that's been going on for quite some time obviously that whole situation put kind of a wrench in things in terms of timing logistics in the p._r. Standpoint but that that is all a fluid situation and i was told the other day that the chances of kenny stills playing for the dolphins this season less than fifty percent and that they can't trade them. They may just end up flat about cutting him again. You know looking long-term is kenny stills going to be on this team after this year no so would you rather keep a guy like isaiah ford order. A guy like kenney still has the answer for me is easy isaiah ford or another young guy. Who maybe you know the dolphins like who've been working their way up. The wide receiver depth charts pressing williams perhaps apps. It's just a you're not playing for this year. You're going to win three four five games this year and that's going to be in your reloading for twenty twenty twenty twenty one and you're making your your big run in twenty to twenty twenty two and lestat franchise quarterback you get burst onto the scene in twenty twenty and then really takes that second big step in twenty twenty one one so everyone's available as we reported last weekend. Every one is available the only person that's probably not exceeding however you just signed that monster contract <hes> <hes> but everyone else and as we see larry tonsil is available and that's what we've been reporting and we haven't backed down from it once and we're not going to back down at all and but it sucks because you're dolphins fan wear a dolphins fan and then we just don't want that and i know i'm rambling right now. This is all like happening in real time right now on where record in this podcast at midnight and it's absolutely insane saying. I think it's the biggest thing though i mean. Can anyone sit here and argue that laremy tunsil isn't the most valuable player on offense. I mean that'd be hard for anybody. Say left tackle. We know is the premier position on the offensive line. I don't care if you're going after next year. Obviously he's a left handed. Quarterback may be put more value on the right side of the offensive line but at the end of the day when you're trying to build an offense when you're china's offense of line the most important positions at left tackle. You've got twenty five. You said they might not compete in three years. He's still going to be twenty eight years old. It's bittersweet and that's the best way to put it because david clowney is elite defense event. He i mean to sit here and think that bryan floors. He's going after him. This intensely doesn't have a plan in place doesn't have a way to use tim as chesapeake all throughout the defense with the guy's already have in place like christian wilkins trolls hairs to starting to emerge divine god vincent taylor. You've got those linebackers guy xavien howard. You've you got the safeties. I mean the defense is going to be scary. Good and maybe they ambitious this as a team that can go out there run the football play defense not turn the ball over and win football games to me though oh you can't do that without an offensive line to me and one thing we need to touch on is a couple of weeks ago you know what is it gentlemen from e._s._p._n. Reported that the dolphins had interest in trent williams thirty one year old pro bowl left tackle. I mean is there any way that you know they trade away. The trade away tunsil a twenty five year old left tackle. They go out there and then make a true with washington fill that void left behind their gets..

"Oh it's starting to become a reality now and now here we are where it's very likely that laremy tunsil is going to be traded while i think it's stupid for the team as well. That's well. That's what we've been talking about all week right guys like we've been saying oh my god okay. We started back in january right to kind of get a broader view of the n._f._l. <hes> you know i don't wanna use the word fans but we did it as fans the say okay. Let's see what we can build off this thing. I don't think we ever thought we'd be in this position so fast to be breaking stories before any other major. Media <unk> outlet has been an and it's all been happening so fast and i think you know bringing tony pauline onto our staff back in august eleventh. We knew he was connected. I don't i don't think we realized he was this connected throughout the n._f._l. And when he <hes> you know and i've been getting information to obviously i've been reporting the stuff about cloudy and was on top of dad knew when he was meeting in miami <hes> that's why i put out that tweet that night <hes> dolla they're making a strong and caps push for today and cloudy and <hes> <hes> man this while it's been a wild week and i know we talk every day like this is so conflicting right because on one hand you know our news it was is that our credibility online that we're saying tumblers involved in trade talks on the other hand were die hard miami dolphins fans and i think regardless of of the concerns that dolphins have about tonsil which will be released in our report wants tunsil is actually traded. I think that can be worked through and you have of an elite left tackle who probably would have gone one or two or three over all if it wasn't for that long video that came up before the draft and other dolphins are looking at treat him crazy and it's just so conflicting. I saw someone else put out a tweet earlier tonight. It's like you and matt and fonseca was another one one of her owner. Just want this tunnel trade to go through so you guys can say you were right and that is absolutely false. Honestly i think we've already been proven right by the fact that tonsils council's been so deeply involved with trade talks in terms of his name being thrown around by major reporters and and basically them verifying our report on this. I think we've already one one in terms of credibility so getting now you know credibility stock up there and then having with the dolphins would be actually a bonus rawson rosen. We've said it we don't want him to get treated. It'd be dumb. I think for them to trade him. I don't see any. I don't see why the only reason wii wise that brian floors wants to build one of the most dominant defenses in n._f._l. History house to go through because i want to do might best possible pace. I've worked on this for a little bit before we got on the podcast and wanna give my best state afterwards words to present a case why we should trade neri tonsils. I want housing. I if he has any any analysis i mean i. I don't know that i have any analysis. I'm just in a little bit torn on this because like i said i mean p._f._m. Reported it by all accounts. I mean what you report is. One hundred percent factual obviously they were talking. Laremy tunsil trade obviously involved jadeveon clowney. We don't know what this compensation will be. We don't know punk. Chances you know if if his report is anything more than i'm just being uncle chaps we don't know report we received in our d._m.'s is anything more than just you know smoke and mirrors but at the end of the day what we do know islami tonsils a twenty five year old elite talent alan under contract for two more seasons on an offensive line that many believe is the worst in the n._f._l. It's kind of it's hard to say here and say no. It's a good trade for either side..

"It just makes way too much sense to keep from august until after the buying your right house. If you put in rosen week one right you there's no way you go back to fitzpatrick because if you go back to its patches and you have a situation choice like you had in tampa bay last year and that was an absolute disaster so you know you cannot do that. Maybe it would definitely be the end of josh rosen. If you look at it in this snapshot in time i mean i think rosen said the right things in the press and i think he impressed me in that way but if you look at it from an organizational standpoint you know we we like what we see we i. I think there's some progress there so at the very the worse. We have a very capable quarterback. That's going to help elevate a another young quarterback that we invest in two thousand twenty four four. He rises above all this amidst all the you know and we'll get to the cold tunsil thing here in a minute but all the question marks that exist right now about how roster's going to deconstructed if he rises above all this and plays well towards at the end of the year then. There's no reason matthew that you could be wrong. Drops rosen is our franchise corner yeah and he might not be you know oh and if he's not he's not the franchise quarterback the records going to definitely reflect it and you're gonna get your franchise quarterback in the draft next to you you have a very capable backup quarterback with whenever young guy we decided to go exactly and i'm sorry for the laws here but we are receiving some d._m.'s about davey and clowning in laremy tunsil and it's kind of fun to do this on the air but it's also like really anxiety ridden <hes> <hes> so we saw report before we came on ear going to jump right into this and move on right now we saw a report before we came on the air. That uncle chaps from barstool sports. We all know <hes> said that. The trade for cloudy was a done deal and he followed up and said he doesn't care about the news. He doesn't care about cloudy. He is not verified at all brian floors. I was asking his post-game presser shortly after i don't think it was related to the report but <hes> the tweet but <hes> you would he said that there is no place there is no trade in place with tonsil console basically at this time which left the door open and then a house. I think you got the same d._m. I just did from this guy. Who's been on this with us. <hes> i'm not going to throw his name nabis. He hasn't publicly reported it yet but he's been he's been he's been getting the same information as we have throughout this entire thing and he's getting and he's been getting some leads out there for us for us to follow up on but <hes> he not even gonna say the conversations. I don't wanna throw up in arms but he's saying thing. It's going to be tunsil and some picks cloudy and some picks <hes> we've always p._f. N. and and i have been always saying since friday that tuncel was being dangled his trade. They actually really i said thompson was available. I don't want want to discredit anybody. I said thompson was available in trade talks and a twenty polling confirmed that twenty point of our own p._f._m. Three sixty five confirmed at that next morning that tanya was being dangled in trade talks and al my god. We got destroyed for that. One we all know the story where the miami dolphins through the miami herald basically said that reports inaccurate by the dolphins were never named by name <hes> we know when they say leagues direct knowledge of the situation that is basically code for the team and then all the major media outlets picked that up into destroyed us bashed us and then all of a sudden. He'll past few days. The possibility of their tonsil actually being traded..

"I'm not really sure if it's an issue per se but we know looking at the reaction that we've been we've been all talking here before we started recording for about the past hour just just waiting for that quarterback news to drop waiting for some other news to drop and you know house and sign. I said you know and this is not the popular opinion <hes> i don't. I don't see a huge issue with this. I really don't when brian flora's says that you you have to look at the entire picture on the field in off the field again. We only see what's happening for three hours a week. In this case we've only really been seeing seeing what's been happening for a few series of preseason game so we have any idea what he's like in meeting rooms. We don't know what it's like. The practice field we don't know what it's like interacting with his teammates breaking down film and so forth and it's just i think it's a spot where you know. I don't think it's as black and white as some people are trying to make it out to be. He admitted that he's never really identified eggs from before or identified mike linebacker when you go against the ravens at one of the best defense in the n._f._l. I mean how you expect a guy like that to succeed. Ryan fitzpatrick patrick has seen pretty much everything that has come his way throughout the n._f._l. In his years in the league and you know i think he's going to have a a much better grasp of what the defense is showing and what the offense is showing so while yes. You may say well. Ryan fitzpatrick isn't going to be the ravens he might not but at least i agree three with brian flora's that fitzpatrick puts the dolphins in the best position to succeed and win doesn't mean he'll be successful successful but i do believe that he does put them in the best position to succeed especially with this offensive line i mean you have to be able to identify that mike identify that front recognize the blitzes that they may be bringing a just out of that coverage and so much more <hes> and in their first part of the schedule is absolutely brutal so i don't have an issue with that when you take your promotions audited for me. I don't have an issue. How's your thoughts yeah. I mean we talked about it throughout. You know several weeks podcast since this prayed all went through. We kinda thought you know what ryan fitzpatrick the veteran been around for fourteen fifteen years. You know he's going to end up being the star of the team flock to him but the biggest thing that kept saying was this was a true competition. Let the best man win and i think that's where a lot of people are a little upset about this because anyone to watch preseason. You know i can't sit here and tell you what happened. In training camp. I can't sit here and tell you what happened each and every day in practice but at the end of the day when the game matter most there's no way ryan fitzpatrick outperformed josh rosen. There might be any way that ryan fitzpatrick outperformed jake aac roddick. He looked better today and yes it was going at sturge triggers guys at might not make the roster but every opportunity he got. He looked the ryan fitzpatrick. Did this preseason. I understand what you're saying. I think this dolphin schedule was brutal touched on a little bit you know back when the trae was made. I said it makes total sense. Start ryan fitzpatrick letting go out there and get cremated those first four games. You have your by your heading into washington. You know maybe they bring a haskins. Maybe it's rosenberg's haskins. It makes sense from that perspective because you can still get twelve games josh rosen but what bothers me most his at from day one brian floors preach competition. You know no roster spots safe. This guy has to battle for this spot. Every opportunity needs to be one not earned not given into you hand it to you and that's pretty much what they did. They handed ryan fitzpatrick the starting job. Maybe gives them the best chance to win this season but he's thirty six years old..

"Rumors and traits was writing a story on how the miami herald shot pro football network and tony pauline down on this and then of course twitter was an absolute dumpster fire. We took it. We took it throughout the day. We felt confident in our sources but we weren't going to stoke the fire anymore. We weren't going to continue to stand up and say you know we stand by reporting which we do we still do see him reporting but we had figured at that point niro's no nothing that could make it any better right because everyone had made up their mind at that time that what the miami herald does reporting was absolute fact berry jackson later tweeted out a bunch of things saying explaining the situation and saying that twenty point was not wrong and he's not wrong at all and that's you know it was mostly the verbiage in our report port that was used that conflicted with them heralds reporting again we were told tonsil was used as trade bait. We were told told the dolphins had interest of monarch mckinney their linebacker. We were told that tonsils name was brought up in discussions with mckinney and we were told the texans said no now because they don't want to move mckinney so that's kind of where we stand matt's now again. I don't know if i'm making any sense 'cause and i'm just kind of shooting off the cuff tonight and just kind of walking everyone through what we endured endured on saturday and friday and sunday because on sunday we got new information and it was late at night and i texted the ownership group and i said listen and here's the information we're getting. I don't know if we should post it. If we had posted this information oh boy it would have been an absolute firestorm worse than the weekend. I mean it would have been absolutely insane. We're not posting it. We will post it when the time is right. If the time is right and then we do again standby reporting that learning samples name was dangled as trade bait doesn't mean he's going to be traded folks and i think this is what people got twisted around. Just because someone's name is dangled. His trade bait doesn't mean they're going to get traded. I mean kenny stills as being dangle single. This trade bait kiko alonzo was her shot. Jones was teaching mcdonald was and they all may not get treated reshad jones. We know is not going to get traded raided this year kiko kenny and maybe getting caught before saturday or after saturday and teach mcdonald got cop so just just because their name has dangled trait doesn't mean that they're going to be traded and some people took our report as saying older topsoil is going to be treated. There's no way the dolphins would trade him and that's not what we said. We said his name was being brought up in conversations by the dolphins not the other teams were asking about how much they are but the his name was proactively being brought up and again. We stand by that report now. I lost lost my train of thought there but i think i covered everything in relation to laremy tunsil. I'm just trying to think here in my head. Did we get into everything and i think we did. If you have any further questions on this you know my twitter at cannot and shoot me at d._m. Answer it as best as i can with what i can say with the limited information that i can give out at this time again. We're working very closely or not very closely. I mean we're talking to him every day on skis on a p._f._m. Staff in all of our information that we put out there is run through him. I he has connections throughout the industry. It'd be foolish for us. You know to not collaborate and we have other people on staff as well like coal thompson. He's our lead writer at pnn who also has sources throughout the n._f._l. And then there's you know matting wanna part of the ownership group and then there's a few others on the staff while brett yours and other one of the owners and then there's a few others who have inside information sources as well and uh-huh yeah..

"On twitter bujak mark as well well he re tweeted it in with quote tweet said this report is accurate and we were told by source close to the dolphins the anyone anyone with tradeable contract was not really on the block per se and i know i use that language when talking about tonsil and maybe wasn't the right language to use. We're talking about semantics here but they were being offered in trades or saying do the other teams that hey these guys are not untouchable if you want them give give us an offer right and so that really limits it to everyone on the team except exuding how're because he just signed the contract extension and and grants while because he just signed one but even then he's really not off the limits but it'd be foolish dolphins a trading after signing a contract extension. Yes sky's like minkah. Fitzpatrick guys like jerome baker and guys like let's say here you know ryan fitzpatrick. Maybe a._b._c.'s josh rosen guys like just trying to go through the process here in my head bobby mccain. Maybe maybe not being opened up for trade you know for teams to go after them but everyone else on the team absolutely and and i had said and is thrown in there and i didn't realize what a firestorm this would have created but i threw in there. I said this includes laremy tunsil and then from there it went crazy so the original tweet was was is just hold a reliable source that the miami dolphins are shopping their entire team follow up some contracts. Make it impossible but anyone tradeable contract is on the block that includes zachary tunsil well. That doesn't mean thompson. We'll get moved off blows them away. They will strongly consider it then. We worked throughout the night right so so we put all that information out there and for me personally. I was putting some from my personal account some how i run the p._f._m. Obviously i'm the owner of bit run. The entire business with guys like sun and house and matting and fontaine br yar isn't ryan rascal were the ownership group and then of course we have a staff about eighty people under us writers editors researchers and more so we put that out and then we're talking to tony pauline who's on staff now with with it's <hes> p._f._m.

Tunnels your anchor and honestly I like tonsil yeah. It's been a good draft pick value pick. He had obviously the draft day. Concerns Ernst was hilarious isn't it concern or money would would have the appearance of Hong attached to the gas mask and that's why he fell but he's been good. When when healthy did you guys see that the guy that was thought of as the consensus? Senses Best Pass rusher in the AF was on the dolphins for minicamp and stuff and they just cut him yesterday. It's just funny how everyone was like. Oh this af it's GonNa be a nice little minor. Leagues Best Pass rusher cut in the dolphins. I believe have already cut two guys from the AF apparently early. They brought in a bunch of them. They're still think six coronary Jackson. He agrees with me that I think they're still six to agree with that just interesting because like I would've thought that the the best player in that league you'd think he could at least make Orazio who's the best pass rusher pass rush in that league but yeah he was in the AF for reason but I would have thought he hung around. I think Cleveland's backup quarterback was Gilbert. who was a quarterback? I think for Orlando if Baker Mayfield goes down all hopes hinge on on a quarterback that was in the AF last year it'll be interesting. I'm excited for the X._F._l.. This league looks like it's got. Its bleep together. I love that they took the time. These coaching staffs are pretty impressive the mini cats and the talent that the bringing in I have a big time T._v.. Deal I think the X._F._l.. Is probably best position to be that Feeder League than anyone we've ever seen and it's just because he took the time it really shows Oliver. Luck Kudos to when are they trying to play. They're playing in twenty twenty but they announced the League two and a half years ago so they've been taking the time the pain Oliver luck a ton of money. They have some impressive coaches coaches have personnel power. I mean they already have their infrastructures in place. This doesn't seem rush the way they af did or a couple of coaches rob stoops was <hes> is one of the coaches out there. <hes> I believe who is <hes> Hank Goldberg love this guy he was a coach of the Chicago Bears Montreal. wets he's yeah you know which guy talking about the guy that gave <hes> Josh mccown surgeons.

"tunsil" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"If Tae to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast talking to match stench comb that his playing days and twenty years ago man want to go back to talking about it may go because we we had a brief conversation during the break, and I want you to share those I was asked this trial and New York gift between college basketball and college football. And I I would like you to elaborate on that. Because their college football has its issues, but leased as of this hour things could change over the next five. Sure as we saw three years ago with Laremy Tunsil. It doesn't seem to be as much of a cesspool as as basketball. Why I think there is a point of distinction in that when you look at this what's transpiring unraveling in college basketball. Is the corporate involvement? And I just don't know where the entry point is the point of value would be corporately speaking for corporate brand to pursue high school football player. I don't think it's a function on football has higher mores. I don't think that basketball's irretrievable in that regard. Although there's a lot of work to be done by do think that the I think the most distinct element is not enthusiasm. It's not I think the opportunity for transgression or impropriety. I think it's that there is not really a reason for a brand a corporate entity to wonder. Because I I mean, his contracts are going to be emits. Yeah. Where I'm trying to think in in recent memory, a college football player that would I mean, there've been valuable college football player, no doubt. And ultimately, they will become valuable Cam Newton does a lot of endorsements others others have done. So but not there's not a standalone they didn't come out of high school. Like that though. I think that's the biggest point of distinction is that the awareness of the individual in basketball, and it's a function of the sports. They don't have a cage in front of their race. It's less of a collective, you know, there's five players on the court. You can run clear out plays and one guy can dominate a game. You can't do that in football. I think all those things adds to. I think what we're seeing unfortunately happening. And thankfully, I think that it's being unearthed in basketball. It's unfortunate, no doubt. But the hope will always be that what will come of all this is not necessarily a cleansing. But some level of progression towards a model that works that will eliminate the steering of kids to certain schools just for the the embellishment of their personal brand for somebody to sell. She there's almost a model that does work and just let them go straight to the NBA. They could do that. Well, and I and I will say this. They don't have to play college basketball, right? Go play in Europe. Go play in China for your to. I don't. But you do not have to play college basketball. There's nothing in the arrangement with the NBA that requires them to do that. However, I will say this you go play in Europe and China, and your brand is going to take a hit versus playing at a Kansas at a Kentucky at a Duke or wherever and I'm not implicating any of those programs. Those are the blue blood basketball programs. And of course, there's a lot of cameras in eyeballs on them helps that brand a lot of cameras in eyeballs on the draft tonight..

"Slattery? Oh, this is joined by errant, son. Joshua this week got inside radio. We're going to talk briefly about the dolphin schedule. Release. We're going to then touch on all of the defensive lineman all the defensive I'm here for hours upon hours or wants to give you a few defensive lineman to keep your eye on the upcoming NFL draft who the dolphins likely have their eyes on both in the first round any possible. Second or third round guy. The dolphins desperately needs some edge rushers. They desperately need to fill up the depth on their defensive line. And this is a great draft for them to do. So all signs points in the for or surround barring any major surprises. Dolphins either. Go defense of liner offensive line on app. Episode of Finsider radio. We talked about the offensive lineman who the dolphins may be targeting in the first round in the mid routes. If you have not listened to that, please be sure to go back in time. And check that out as we name quite a few prospects and all their strengths and weaknesses or they could bring to the Miami Dolphins football team. The NFL draft is just over a week away round one on Thursday, April twenty fifth round two three and four on Friday, April twenty six and the balance of the draft on Saturday, April twenty seventh the dolphins, of course, pick thirteenth overall in the first round, and it is going to be the fourth time in team history. If they have picked thirteenth overall their previous picks at number thirteen nineteen seventy seven AJ, Dewey, the linebacker from LSU nineteen eighty one David Overstreet, the running back from Oklahoma. And of course, just a few years ago. Laremy Tunsil the tackle from sippy? We all. Donald that story. The Miami Dolphins have right now as it stands seven selections one in each round except a six round they have to in the seventh round the dolphins. Are of course, looking to trade back and accumulate those picks both this year and next year. Chris Greer and his press conference on Wednesday morning said that basically he looks at the draft is if he can find three starters out of it. It is success. He essentially said finding three starters is to goal and everything else is gravy, and that will basically be depth and backups along the different positions on the field. So when you look at Chris Greer's drafts over the years, you can see that so far he's pretty much been on track. Although he needs to on more. And I feel like you needs to get maybe, you know, three starters as a perfectly reasonable thing. But then to quality backups or depth pieces that can rotate in there and really make an impact and make that same in. The problem is though some of them have been ofensive, I'm defeat. Lineman guys have not made a huge impact and the overall grand scheme of things can Adolf's find that guy this year time, we'll tell find out in just over a week from now. Before we jump right into the draft and talk about all the different options for the dolphins defensive line. I want to touch on the schedule released that being released today. Eight o'clock PM eastern standard time today being Wednesday as record this, but many schedule links leaks came out through the day. I had a quite a few of them are friend. Travis Wingfield from longtime dolphins had a lot of them as well was able to cover the balance of the remaining games that were open the schedule throughout the day. And of course, all the other beat reporters filling in and so forth, and there's some initial reactions, but we all know at this time of the schedule basically means nothing because injuries happen teams change, the draft changes everything and so forth. So for you out, you know, looking at the dolphin schedule thus far and seeing what you have in terms of what we can expect this coming season where do you see the dolphins fairing? And what do you think maybe the, you know, the roughest part of the schedule es part of the schedule any show. Are there any advantages? They may have what are your initial thoughts? Let's be honest as soon as the season begins..

"We talked about time and time again, and whether it was the Josh Sitton with a veteran presences whether it's just a game slowing down for him. He has become one of the best left tackles in the NFL. One of the best offense of lineman's in the NFL. So for me to see a guy like that get snubbed based off a popularity it had nothing to do with play on the field. Do not kid yourself. Laremy Tunsil is a top five left tackle top five offensive linemen. Perhaps what he has done. This year is just everything that you expect from guy who many believe was number one player in that draft. You we all know why fell but thankfully phone. The dolphins laps a lot of people say left tackles, arguably the most important position the offense because it protects your quarterback as much as I'm happy seeking how we're gonna they're seeing Laremy Tunsil. Get snubbed is a travesty end whether become whether replacement whatever may be he's moving of what pro bowler growing up is what I viewed as an elite talent. And that's tonsil. Yeah. The only thing I want to add as I just want to have a better mechanism for evaluating and fell players the Pro Bowl, isn't it as much as I like. The greatest players in the NFL getting together. It looks more like a bunch of dudes playing noon ball at the YMCA and just kinda shooting the crap. So that's not something I really want to invest a whole lot of time timer energy in watching it as a fan, but I do want to have a better way of recognizing. And signifying the best players in the NFL are. Certainly hope that exhibit our continues his upward trajectory. I'm sure we'll talk about him a lot in the offseason because he's going to be a lightning. Rod, I think and and terms of what the organize organization does with him going forward. But congratulations avian, let me tonsil in my opinion as one of the best if not the best young left tackle and the National Football League. I wanna give him some props to. You can make some arguments about some players that we've had that we had a smaller sample size with who possibly could made some noise who we lost earlier in the year. But you know, I. It'd be nice to have more dolphin players on there. But I'm not necessarily that worried about Pro Bowl voting because I know it's an Harry a completely ludicrous process. Yeah. It is a ludicrous process. But it does mean something to the players, and they do have incentives in their contracts, and it is nice sometimes to see the recognition for Miami Dolphins players. And perhaps if you know they were used in a better way in a more involved in the offense and defense, then they would get the recognition some of these players serve. I'm not saying there's a lot of players on the same. Guess you're right on their me. Tonsil absolutely one hundred percent. I think he's the only one that should definitely go this year besides avian Howard. But I'm just saying if other players were featured the right way, perhaps we just don't know what they can possibly do on the field. And that ultimately goes back to the coaching staff. We covered a ton here on this episode. And I did not think it was going to be this long. I thought we were gonna spend you know, about five seven minutes on each category. Bugged it just shows the depth of this decision..

"So. Is your notice I only mentioning xavien Howard as only one Pro Bowl nomination for the dolphins. Is here. A lot of people thought Laremy Tunsil was going to get one. He did not. So depending on how you feel about that. I think that is a snob. I thought Laremy Tunsil has been outstanding this year all things considered really bouncing back from kind of a whole home season last year in two thousand seventeen. So here we are Zeming Howard's in the Pro Bowl. A lot of guys you thought we're going to be in the Pro Bowl. Patrick Mahomes is in their Philip rivers is in there. There are a ton of chargers this year, including my pouncey, Mike pouncey and his brother are both the centers for the AFC. So that's either pretty cool or that's just get ugly for some dolphins fans to you're going to say that we let that guy go To's in. I don't know you make the call Zach. What do you think I know that you haven't had a chance to really look at? On the guys that went, but we can just kinda run down the list. I think the quarterbacks are Mahomes. I'm just going off memory here. Because I just checked the list about ten minutes before I got on air. So it's Mahomes rivers and Tom Brady. I imagine you don't have any issue with that group. Nope. Man. So Eric Fisher gets in for Kansas City, which is a bit curious. I think that this year. Yeah. I mean. That trip and the Moonies. Joy, the the trip the bonus in the number one overall pick in twenty thirteen. I would along strange trip. It's been for that guy. But no props to him. He's going to the Pro Bowl. So that's pretty cool. I'm just like I said I'm going through memory here because I don't have my phone in front of me. Five Kogyo bears are going to the Pro Bowl. I thought that that was going to be a stacked A-List Tariq cone is the return specialists, all the other dudes are your your usual suspects for them. Cluele max is gonna go. Akeem Hicks is going Eddie Jackson's in there and Kyle Fuller's going to hopefully, I think is still tied for the lead in interceptions. So. That is definitely something to note as that defense has been forced to be reckoned with I mentioned the chargers I got away from that for a second Melvin Gordon's going. He's been awesome. This year Keenan Allen is going. So that's a an as we mentioned a little bit ago during James, so arguably the AFC's best team right now, depending on where you stand we mentioned that last week when we're talking about that chiefs chargers preview charters ended up pulling that game out. I mean, they they did what you see a lot of college teams did on the road in the old days when there was no such thing as overtime. You're either plan for a tie or the win. They went for the win. And then went for the two point conversion, they got it with ease in. I don't know Zach we talked about this. And I mean look at the plane dolphins stuff. I'm just kind of delaying the inevitable. Only have to talk about the what went down in Minnesota because it was just so hideous what we watched on Sunday. But. When Philip rivers went to the huddle for that before that two point conversion last Thursday night. I noticed that he was talking pretty much only to Mike Williams. And at that point, Mike Williams is having a huge game in Kansas City had no way to stop him. Obviously Kansas City not the league's best defense. In fact, I think they're still tackling the worse or they're at least in the the bottom two or three. In a notice he was talking only to Mike Williams. I thought that must be some sort of misdirection or something like they're just trying to bluff these guys a little bit. Nope. Sure enough. They just threw the ball right tomb. I mean, they schemed him open. And there was no one within five yards of that, dude. So I'm pretty much a blatant district. Just blatant lack of regard for Kansas City's putting out on defense, I suppose especially in the secondary. But. LA goes out, a I might have called them sandiego and there, and that's a horrible habit of mine. And I'm sorry. But it's so hard after coming. They were the San Diego Chargers for the first thirty two years of my life. So it's been tough to go ahead..

"Moving on the patriots verse dolphins on Sunday. We will see how that all plays out at hard rock stadium. The dolphins, of course, trying to stay alive in the playoff race. The patriots trying to do their own thing at the top of the AFC. Let's switch gears here and kind of look ahead to the off season. And not really look ahead in terms of Saint dolphin season is done because they're still alive, and they still have a chance to make the playoffs. If they went out, and they do what they need to do. But let's talk about some relevant topics in the offseason that are impacting what's going on this season. Or what this season is impacting what's going to be happening in the offseason. If that makes sense and that is exerting Howard alert Tunsil exerting Howard is a lockdown cornerback. We've talked about this in our recap episode, but he's going to be a free agent after next season. And he is going to command big big money, and he's probably going to end up being the highest paid cornerback in NFL possibly NFL history. We always see these contracts pop up for a bit, and they get bigger and bigger and bigger exuding. Howard was the second round pick. So he does not have a fifth year option. When you look at existing Howard. He looked at the impressive numbers. He has put up this season and even going back to last season. He not only leaves the NFL interceptions. But several of his picks have come in pivotal moments. Of course, we to against the New York Jets momentum week three intercept David Derek Carr twice including a pick in the end zone. A seal the game, basically. And then of course, you know, when other games this season as well. Here's the eleven interceptions in this past seventeen games his seven interceptions lead by one Kyle fuller and Demonte KC from Atlanta. They both have six going back to week thirteen twenty seventeen to president is even Howard has eleven next closest Kyle fuller from Chicago with eight his seven interceptions this.

"And if you could find any positives with this team this year, there are quite a few positives less not be mistaken here. This is not a team that is just trash. Okay. There are there are many positives that that you will find in his team just needs to come together. But let's not ignore the excellent play of DHA left. Tackle Laremy Tunsil. One of the most important positions in the NFL a young centerpiece to build run on that offensive line sign. What have you seen from tonsil that makes you feel so optimistic about his future is a Miami dolphin? Just seems like the game slowing down for him a little bit one of the big concerns from last year was the penalties that we saw from him in you've seen no penalties from him in the last four games. Granted. You did see four in the first four games for you've seen zero in the last four games. So that was one of those major hurdles that you have to make a professional to make sure that you're not putting your team and those negative situations. And he's only allowed one sack in this first half of the season. So the last four games have been a much better indicator in my opinion than the first four games in the season. Were he's face him elite competition along the way. I think when I am able to dig into the all twenty two granted this is just kind of of a first glance. But I do believe that I'm gonna see Laremy Tunsil showing some pretty good tape from the Houston Texans game. And you dislike the combination of competition as face and the resilience in terms of not may competitiveness in it. You like just how important at position is in this league. Now, how important plan the tackle position? How it is more catered to a passing league in being able to protect quarterbacks is so important, and you know that vice versa. It's just showing how much of a detriment is for our defensive installation right now. But on the flip side just showing how this half empty half. Full thing works, literally. Tuncel is doing in my opinion, a very good job at plane one of the most important positions in football. So what else did a very good job against the Texans was the vaunt a Parker bursting onto the scene after really not playing much this season. His Asian, of course, firing often Adam gates last week when he was inactive, and it was just funny because had devante Parker. Burst onto the scene has a tremendous game. The best receiver on the field by far in terms of the dolphins. Obviously not better than the Andrea options. But making great catches staying in the game staying in his own Brock and him had a great chemistry going on. And now you look at the dolphins. And you say what do they do from here house? What do you think the dolphins doing? What would you do of? You're running this team. I think it's funny because I think before the game started to his Jay Glazer may have went out there and said that the dolphins dangled Demonte park in front of the Cowboys nearly yet we're going to net, then you seem go out here and Egypt just balls in. He had six receptions one hundred thirty four yards. Like, you said he was definitely the best receiver on the field says a lot when he can go out there and just make those plays. You look a lot. Like the guy who the dolphins sought. They drafted with the fourteenth overall pick in two thousand fifteen draft. Demonte parker. It's he's been up and down. I mean, we all know about the injury concerns the questionable reasoning behind whether or not he was healthy. I mean, I I don't know why I guess has activated news last few weeks. You mentioned we're looking for something different on special teams. Well, if this is the devante Parker that you could have gotten to three games ago. I don't know what the heck you're thinking because this guy went out there and balled may was because he wanted to go out there and try to impress another team show his Asian showed himself show the dolphins what he's capable of. But. Whether or not it it's hard to see where the dolphins go from here..
