Officially tomorrow makes two weeks away from the start of Training Camp 2012 for the Miami Dolphins, and position battles on both sides of the football have been discussed by arm chair quarterbacks all across South Florida! Quarterback and wide receiver are the two positions on offense that garner most of the attention, but on defense, I’m going to focus on the linebacker position.
Former Dolphin Jason Taylor recently spoke with Jesse Agler about joining ESPN and whether he thinks participating in HBO’s Hard Knocks is a good idea. Here is what he had to say:
“So far, so good. It is still a little weird to hear ‘ex-Miami Dolphin,’ but life is good. I can’t complain.”
On his new job with ESPN
“It is a great opportunity to work with the worldwide leader [in sports] and get a chance to analyze the game from the other side of the desk, so to speak.
With a nice combination of moves, the Miami Dolphins have transformed their linebackers group over the off-season. In 2010, the unit helped the Dolphins finish sixth in the league in total defense thanks to a Pro Bowl outside linebacker in Cam Wake and a very good inside linebacker in Karlos Dansby. However, with a series of moves this off-season the Dolphins have added depth at the position to supplement talented returning LBs: Wake, Dansby and Koa Misi.
