The Splash Zone 9/19/17: Lawrence Timmons Wants To Play, But Future Uncertain

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.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

We all know the Lawrence Timmons situation and how bizarre it is. The linebacker who just left his team behind has said that he wants to play with the team. But will he get that chance? Adam Gase has yet to speak to the linebacker, so Timmons future with the team is up in the air. The Dolphins linebacking unit was already thin, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see them keep Timmons around. But Gase is not a happy camper right now, so it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out.

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