The Splash Zone 11/1/17: No One Is Above The Team

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: New York Jets at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Gase sent a message to his team yesterday as the Dolphins traded Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles. The move is surprising but apparently the team was looking to move on from Ajayi after the season anyway. Gase was very critical on the running back after the Ravens game on Thursday. The relationship between Gase and Ajayi was never really good, dating back to week 1 of last season.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
