Tyrek Hill began the Miami Dolphins’ first training camp practice by hypnotizing the crowd for fans, landing a backflip and holding the microphone.
After a spirited message where he broadcast Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens’ favorite catch phrase, “Get Your Popcorn Ready,” he then ended an impressive day’s work by a beautifully thrown touchdown catch in the middle. highlighted. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s ball.
Fans were then treated to a demonstration of how extensive new coach Mike McDaniel’s offense could be with the Miami Playmakers off-season—from 65-yard bombs to variations in run games.
The team’s period began with a pair of runs by Chase Edmonds showing what McDaniel’s wide-zone plan could produce in the ground game. Terron Armstead, a standout offseason signing on left tackle, dropped out of Saturday’s practice on a seasoned maintenance schedule, the right side of the offensive line scoring some of the season’s big runs.
Edmonds ran with a purpose, finding gaps on his cuts to shine his sight. Tailback scored both outside and inside, and, although the defender was yet to take the field at camp, the back appeared primed to finish the run.
The ground game opened up the play action, which was used when Tagovailoa threw a deep touchdown to Hill and another huge advantage where Hill was left open on the sidelines with room to run after the catch.
Members of the 1972 Undefeated Dolphins The exercises included Larry Sonka, Larry Little and Dick Anderson on hand for Alumni Day.
Saturday’s practice with a pair of Andrew van Ginkel sacks was the standout and ended the day with a pass breakup on the Tagovailoa throw. ,
Xavien Howard has gotten the best of Tyrek Hill in back-to-back days in a 1-on-1 setting. After Friday’s pass deflection in tight coverage on Hill, Howard was at it again on Saturday, overthrowing Tagovello with his coverage. ,
Jevon Holland, wearing the orange jersey, as the day’s previous practice player, had a play where he ran from a security position to go to a pass catcher in the flat, demonstrating his range and instincts. ,
Working the run game out well, linebacker Jerome Baker Flashed his sideline-to-sideline motion from there to stop one. ,
Emmanuel Ogba and melvin ingram The closest were the defenders splitting Tagovailoa’s potential sack. ,
Backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater placed on the ball for several coverage sacks. He had Jaylen Waddle on a pass deep enough that he missed diving Waddle’s fingers and linebacker Duke Riley ran him for a deeper depth. ,
The Big Nose tackle was Rakwon Davis’s 1-on-1 rep against center/guard Connor Williams, where Williams ended up on the ground. ,
Braylon Sanders, with his stock already in place after catching a long touchdown in Friday’s session, made a highlight-reel one-handed catch on a 1-on-1 back-shoulder throw. ,
Defensive tackle Benito Jones scored in the middle. ,
The Dolphins were the first dust-up between players at camp as Zacquandre White had to run back and isolate defensive back Quincy Wilson.
Tagovailoa had his best practice so far out of the four. Hill was deeply involved and an otherwise skilful performance threw the football with several big gains, including back-to-back short throws to Cedric Wilson, on the opposite side of the field for another wide-open Hill. Junior and A about 20 yards to Crockcraft River. Van Ginkel stepped into the crowd nearby.
Covering Hill is a tough matchup for third-year cornerback Noah Ibinoghin when the Dolphins are going to introduce him to fans, but he was burned repeatedly. Howard or Byron Jones doesn’t work in 11-on-11 practice in Miami, but it’s discouraging if Igbinoghin ever ends up in a position like last season where he had to start losing to the Jaguars in London. However, Igbinoghin had a 1-on-1 breakout against receiver Preston Williams. In 2021 seventh-round pick Gerid Dox dropped an open pass for the flat and it looks like he won’t survive this running back room.
Armstead rested as part of its veteran maintenance program. Offensive lineman Michael Deiter (legs) and defensive lineman Adam Butler (unknown) were sidelined for Saturday’s practice.
Fullback Alec Ingold was in a red jersey, and Raheem Mostart did not do team practice during a maintenance plan in which he alternated days through four drills.
