The Splash Zone 5/25/17: Notes From Day Two Of Dolphins OTA’s

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.


Some Dolphin players were able to meet with the media yesterday and among them were the two newest additions to the tight end room. Anthony Fasano, who returned to Miami after four years, talked about how there is a different feel in the building. Fasano had Tony Sparano and Joe Philbin as his head coaches during his time in Miami. Julius Thomas wants to have a rebound in Miami after his time in Jacksonville. The tight end is very familiar with Adam Gase and hopefully he can reach the dominant level he played at in Denver.

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