8/17/22 UPDATE: Miami Dolphins Orange Jersey Award TRACKER; we have a Tight End sighting!

No, not that one.

The Miami Dolphins are running out of training camp practices. On the one hand, that’s great news since the end of training camp practices means the beginning of regular season football. On the other hand, the end of training camp seemingly means the end of the orange jersey award - an award given to the previous practice’s best performer. But, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

The Miami Dolphins took the field Wednesday morning for their 14th training camp session, but only one player was wearing the orange threads. Who was that man?

Durham Smythe was bestowed the honor!

Smythe is entering his fifth year as a tight end in the National Football League - all as a member of the Miami Dolphins. He recently signed an extension with the club.

Many are predicting a bigger role for Smythe under new head coach, Mike McDaniel, as his prowess as a blocker seemingly indicates that his snap count will go up at the expense of his teammate and fellow 2018 draft-mate, Mike Gesicki. Time will tell if those predictions come true.
