According to TMZ, former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incignito is being held on psychiatric hold following an altercation at a Boca Raton gym on Wednesday morning in which he reportedly threw a dumbbell at another man.
The Dolphins had no immediate reaction to the National Football League's new policy regarding players kneeling during the national anthem. Kenny Stills is the only Miami player still on the roster who did not stand at all during the 2017 season.
The NFL's new national anthem policy announced Wednesday requires players who wish to not stand for the anthem to remain in the locker room, out of sight. The league is literally trying to hide its problem in a victory for those who mistakenly saw anthem-kneeling as unAmerican.
The Miami Dolphins’ first official OTA practice of the offseason included full participation from three key players whose 2017 seasons were wiped out by injury: quarterback Ryan Tannehill, linebacker Raekwon McMillan and cornerback Tony Lippett.
As the team begins its offseason practices this week, there might be no NFL quarterback with more pressure on him than Dolphins starter Ryan Tannehill, as he returns from a year lost to a knee injury. But also none with more cause for motivation.
Former Dolphins player Kim Bokamper spoke highly of Miami's 2018 NFL Draft class and said he believes the team's top three picks — Minkah Fitzpatrick, Mike Gesicki and Jerome Baker — will be heavily involved in the game plan next season.
