With each passing day in the month of August, and each day of training camp practice for the Miami Dolphins, we move one step closer to our beloved football team playing meaningful football come the start of the regular season. But before we can begin to talk Week One, we must get through the rest of the offseason.
The Fins took the field on Saturday morning in front of a house packed with Dolphins fans. But it was one Fins player who was singled out for being the previous practice session’s best performer...
The man decked out in the bright orange threads this go around was none other than defensive tackle, Christian Wilkins!
It was Wilkins’ second time being awarded the orange practice jersey - his first since OTA sessions. At the time of this writing, there has been no confirmation, but it is a safe assumption that plenty of Disney tunes were played, as well as music from the Broadway smash hit, Hamilton!
It is no secret that Miami wants to lock Christian Wilkins up with a long-term contract, and they’d be wise to do so before his price-tag gets even pricier. Wilkins has been one of the stand-out players on defense this offseason, according to almost every media member in attendance.
