With credit card invoices Tre’Davious White struggling to return from injury, the remaining cornerbacks Siran Neal, Danish Jacksonand first-round pick Kaiir Elam all battling for the No. 2 spot for White’s comeback.
“We have a lot of young guys in the room right now, more than the older guys,” Neal said, via Dante Lasting from BuffaloBills.com. “I take all the young people under my arm at the moment. The things that I see in the movies and the things that they struggle with, I just tell them to think about it this way or that way and keep pushing. Right now it’s early in the process, so their heads are spinning, but they get the hang of it pretty quickly. And with the guys we’ve had and the guys they’ve brought in, the DB room looks good.
Neal is the veteran of the group and his versatility gives him a good shot at sticking to a role, whether it’s slot corner or special teams.
“How resilient you have to be,” Jackson said what he learned from Neal. “He bounced back with so many different positions. He’s here, he’s there, but he never wavered. He comes to work every day and that’s exactly what he does.
“It means a lot to play for the Miami Dolphins,” Tagovailoa said, via the Miami Herald. “At one point, the city of Miami revolved around the Dolphins, because the Dolphins were really the only professional sports team that was here at any point. And then the Heat came, the Panthers came. But that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to restore the culture here in Miami.
Tagovailoa admitted he and Hill need to improve their chemistry ahead of the season.
“I don’t think it’s good enough” said Tagovailoa. “I’ve outwitted him so many times. I say it like that. I underestimated him so many times. He got people talking about how I can’t throw the ball deep.
“It’s Alright, Man” said Hill. “I just feel like our chemistry is gonna get there, man. It’s gonna be like 2 a.m. one night, and you’re gonna wake up. You’re gonna walk into your kitchen, and I’m gonna wash your dishes. is how our chemistry is going to be good. You’re going to say ‘what the fuck are you doing here?’ I’m going to be like ‘Man, look. I’m trying to get that chemistry and that bond together. So you know where I am on the court at all times, so if I’m running a 60-yard course and I decide to make a comeback, I just need the ball right there. Our chemistry is going to be there. Just believe that.
