With eight practices in the books, the Miami Dolphins played the 2023’s first scrimmage in front of fans at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday. The majority of players took the field wearing aqua and orange — but one orange jersey was working in the trenches.
Defensive tackle Christian Wilkins wore his second orange jersey of the year after earning the honors on the second day of June’s minicamp. The Dolphins project to have a strong defense in 2023 and Wilkins will be at the center of it.
Drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Wilkins has improved each year as the first piece of Miami’s ‘rebuild.’
With $13 million in cap space, fans want the Dolphins to add running back Dalvin Cook. Instead, Miami should use that money to keep the former All-American defensive tackle in South Florida for the foreseeable future.
