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 Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

On Wednesday night, Stephen Ross issued a statement about the claims against him that Brian Flores included in his NFL lawsuit. According to Flores, Ross allegedly offered Flores $100,000 per loss back in 2019 when the team was deemed to be “tanking”. Flores did not accept the offer and he feels like that played a part in his firing last month. Ross stated that the allegations are false and is ready to defend himself and is willing to cooperate with the league. We can only hope these allegations are false, because Ross and the Miami Dolphins could be in some deep trouble if these findings are true.

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