There’s a viral photo going around of Miami Dolphins star linebacker Jaelan Phillips meeting with Formula One driver Yuki Tsunoda.
Kevin Clark of The Ringer showed a photo of Tsunoda and Phillips having a conversation. Similar to the Aaron Judge-José Altuve side-by-side photo, or the more recent example of the Bryce Young-Brian Burns image, you can see there’s a major difference in size between Tsunoda and Phillips:
Tsunoda is listed at 5-foot-3 in height, and Phillips is listed at 6-foot-5 and 266 pounds. Here are the aforementioned photos of Judge beside Altuve and Young beside Burns, for comparison sake:
Tsunoda competes on the Scuderia AlphaTauri team. The winner of the 2018 F4 Japanese Championship earned FIA Rookie of the Year and Anthoine Hubert Award honors as a 20-year-old back in 2020.
The Dolphins drafted the former UCLA Bruins and Miami Hurricanes star in the first round at No. 18 overall back in 2021. Phillips had a solid rookie year in South Beach, recording 8.5 sacks while helping Miami to a second straight winning season.
Phillips had another productive year for the Dolphins in 2022, recording seven sacks, two pass defenses and a pair of fumble recoveries. Miami finished 9-8 and ended a six-year playoff drought, but they fell to the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card Round.
Miami will try to qualify for the postseason in back-to-back years for the first time in 22 years; they qualified in five straight seasons from 1997 to 2001. The Dolphins haven’t won a playoff game since the 2000 Wild Card Round against the Indianapolis Colts.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
