    More often than not in football, players stick together by position... So IMO, Wake would have nothing really to do with Parker... Who has Parker been around...??? Mainly Landry and Stills...

    If Amendola can't get Parker going in the right direction then I don't see him growing up... Parker also has Wilson to learn from...

    Who did Parker learn from since he was a rookie WR...??? Greg Jennings was around during Parker's rookie season... He was productive as a rookie... Who knows what could have been if Jennings wasn't released before season 2 with the Phins...

    IMO, the Phins should look to draft an early round stud WR next year...

    Yea it's not like Wake is in the WR room watching film and stuff. It's Landry and Stills who we be guys he would look too but both of them are high working guys so it really is just him.

DVP could just be more prone to injuries due to his genetics.

    I just hate this maturity argument because each offseason has been the DVP hype show and people only attack his habits once he gets hurt. And Parker looked GREAT last year until he got hurt. I just dont believe Chambers has this magic routine that will never make DVP get hurt again lol.

    And yea the Carroo trade has Tbaum written all over him. But it's all a guess because we're all hyped for Howard and at the time the trade was a bit questionable. I personally like either trading back or just letting it drop to you unless it's a top player on your board.
    I'm not saying that Parker DOES have a maturity issue. I'm just saying that if he has any questions about how to "live right" and prolong his career, then he couldn't have a better resource than Wake. If I remember correctly, it was Vernon Davis that used to hang out with Wake to learn all about his habits. I remember him saying in an interview (again, I think it was Vernon Davis) that "if you want to know how to do it 'right', then you need to spend time with Wake". Wake isn't a TE and Davis was playing for the Niners. Yes, his brother played for the Dolphins, but he still found a way to make that connection. Just saying, if there's a will, there's a way. I'm sure Wake would take a receiver under his wing for a week to give him some nutritional and training advice.

    As for the Carroo trade, it's real easy to complain in retrospect. On paper, we got one of the best receivers in the draft. We may not like it now, but the trade up made sense if you landed a legit 2nd-round talent where we got him. The problem, is just that he didn't work out. Any time you give up additional picks to land a player and then they struggle to even make the team, the fan base is destined to be pissed. If Carroo was our legit replacement for Landry, then no one would think twice about it. The fact that he's probably going to get cut, just makes us think "imagine what we could have done with the draft pick(s) that we lost". Oh well, live and learn.

    So, we extended Bobby McCain. This has Tannebaum written all over it...

    Dolphins signed CB Bobby McCain to a four-year, $27 million extension.

    The deal includes $13 million guaranteed. Miami used their post June cap space from releasing Ndamukong Suh to extend McCain. This is a huge win for agent Drew Rosenhaus, making McCain the highest paid slot corner in the league. McCain played most of his snaps inside during his breakout 2017, but may see more time opposite Xavien Howard this season.

    A few things I see differently here. I don't think anyone believes Parker will never get hurt again if he trains under Chambers. I don't think anyone can completely prevent injuries even with proper training and diet and rest. I am fairly prone myself due to ligaments being too long for my body. I have been dubbed "hyper mobile" and have been told I should be more prone to dislocations and sprains than the average person because of it. Yet I don't get very many of either and, probably not coincidentally, I eat much better and keep myself in better shape than most people my age. I think some are genetically more prone to injuries, but I think regardless of the hand you are dealt, you can make yourself less likely to get hurt with diet, training and rest. Even Wake blew an Achilles and he is known for taking care of himself. But he has been durable and I think most people would agree that his regimen has helped his performance and his durability throughout his career. Notice nobody criticized Wake when he got hurt. Better training, diet and rest should definitely help anybody who is not putting enough into these areas. These have been issues for Parker through his career unless Gase just made it up a few years ago when he called him out on it in a presser. But he would have nothing to gain by making that up. People don't necessarily wait until he is hurt to talk about it either. The fact that it is being talked about in the off season shows us that. But of course it would be talked about when he gets hurt because this maturity is widely seen as a cause for his definite pattern of injuries.

    Today the Dolphins announced Ballage, Smythe and Baker are signed. That's all of the rookies now except for Gesicki.

    This is a nice read. Some unnamed scout who does not work for the Dolphins weighs in on some picks and stuff. If it is truly a scout who is not with the Dolphins, I respect the unbiased source. I am encouraged by the fact that FitzPatrick is bright and a leader. A real leader, not a guy the team just tries to sell as a leader. We have been down that road. I was not in love with the pick as I said after the draft, but that is not to say I didn't think FitzPatrick won't be a great player for us, just not the position I was hoping for. But he's a Dolphin and Saban's players do come NFL ready, which Minkah appears to be early in his pro career.
    The part about Geiseke being straight line speed is not so bad when you remember that Tannehill throws better to targets moving away from the LOS than horizontals. Could this be a good match of players' skills or just a coincidence? Either way they should make some plays.
    I'm still not that fired up about Amendola. As a rule, I always say stay away from former New England trash. I find they are usually a product of their system (cheating) and can be expected to fall to Earth once they have to play by the rules. We'll see though. But then I'm not at all upset about Landry leaving either, so he has smaller shoes to fill than many people think, from my perspective.
    The two evaluators say Minkah Fitzpatrick should not only elevate the Dolphins with his play, but in time he also should help lessen the mental mistakes that have plagued the Dolphins’ defensive backfield.

    Fitzpatrick led Dolphins defensive backs in interceptions during the offseason program, according to teammate Cornell Armstrong.
