Tyreek Hill wore the orange jersey at practice on Monday for his performance at the last practice on Saturday afternoon. Tyreek when speaking about the Dolphins’ offense told the media; “Just Like Waffle House, Everyone’s Open 24 Hours.”
In regards to the speed of the offense Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin said, “Yes, you said it, man. Just everything is moving fast. A faster pace. Guys are coming together, obviously. It was a big offseason for us as the Dolphins. I think it’s finally coming together. Obviously we were just all excited to get back in here for camp and everything. Being here has just been a lot of fun, learning this playbook, getting out here and running these plays, seeing these new guys, getting to see ‘Cheetah’ (Tyreek Hill) out here. Man, it’s a lot of fun and a lot of excitement for us.”
Gaskin was also asked about how this system fits his skill set compared to last year’s offensive system. Gaskin said, “I think it fits my skill set. I think – it is what it is. At the end of the day, you get a playbook, you learn how to run how they want you to run, but at the same time, you continue to be yourself. All of us are here for a reason. So you take the coaching points and then try to translate them to your game and how you can excel like that. Every system is always a little bit different. Coaches want a little bit something (different) from others, but at the end of the day, it’s football. I think this one, a lot of outside zone and that type of stuff, it’s been good for me.”
Connor Williams spoke about his snapping and how the placement of snaps is going being that he is a first-time center. Williams said, “It’s definitely progressed. It becomes second-hand where you’re not thinking about it and you’re throwing it back there and it hits the money.”

Quote of the Day
Raekwon Davis on going up against Connor Williams each day in practice and about Connor not playing center before prior to this year: “Bro, listen. When Connor first got here – because I felt like zone, quick zoning was something I really struggled with – and when Connor got here, he really made me better as a player, quick zoning, the type of blocks they do. I’ve been so much better ever since he’s been here. But yeah, he’s a great center. He’s great, bro. He’s very good. He’s been good ever since he’s been here.”
