The Splash Zone 8/15/16: Laremy Tunsil Still Has A Lot To Learn

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

According to Adam Gase, the reason Laremy Tunsil is not starting ahead of Dallas Thomas is because Tunsil still has a lot to learn. Fans have been calling for Thomas's head after his poor showing against the Giants. I think we know as fans that Thomas is not a very good guard but that's not how the coaching staff sees it. I think by the start of the season Tunsil will be penciled in as the starter, ahead of Thomas.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
