Oh, where does the time go? It feels like only yesterday when we, as Miami Dolphins fans, were pining for the start of offseason practices, yet now, on August 23rd, we find ourselves nearing the end of training camp as Miami gears up for their final preseason contest against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Another new day brings another new practice and another opportunity for a player to be awarded the orange practice jersey - a jersey given to the previous practice’s best performer. Who got the nod today?
Chase Edmonds was the man in the orange threads!
This marks the first time this offseason that a running-back was bestowed the orange jersey - unless you count fullback, Alec Ingold, and I don’t.
Edmonds was signed to a two-year deal worth $12.6 million this offseason. With fellow running-back, Raheem Mostert, dealing with lingering injury issues, Edmonds has been the lead man in the Miami backfield according to reports. It bears watching to see if that pecking order sticks once Mostert is back with the squad on a full-time basis - yet a committee in the running-backs room is the most likely outcome.
