We’ve turned the page on an ugly preseason game for many Miami Dolphins’ players on the roster bubble and the team is once again practicing ahead of their trip to Houston for joint practices, then an eventual preseason contest, against the Texans.
With another practice comes another opportunity for a Dolphins player to wear the orange jersey — an award given out to the team’s best practice performer from the previous session. Except, the last two times the Dolphins took the practice field, there was no orange jersey to be seen. Head Coach Mike McDaniel recently explained that he did that intentionally as to not “put a target” on any one individual player while they practiced against another team of NFL players.
So, who got the orange jersey award today? Well, the answer to that question is arguably Miami’s best player — wide receiver Tyreek Hill!

Tyreek Hill remains an elite weapon in the National Football League and whether or not he’s in the orange jersey at practice, the entire world knows it. He has stated numerous times that his goal this season is to top 2,000 yards receiving — a feat that has never been accomplished in NFL history.
Do you think he can make it happen?
