One game into the 2019 season and the Miami Dolphins are already eliminated from playoff contention. Not really, but really.
Because of that, a bunch of them want out of Miami now.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source with knowledge of the situation, reports:
“Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, multiple Dolphins players contacted their agents after Sunday’s season-opening blowout loss and directed them to attempt to engineer trades elsewhere. The players believe that the coaching staff, despite claiming that they intend to try to win, aren’t serious about competing and winning and by all appearances have bought into the notion that the Dolphins will take their lumps now in the hopes of laying the foundation via high draft picks for building a successful team later.”
The Dolphins have stated they are not using the 2019 season to tank, but moves such as trading away tackle Laremy Tunsil and receiver Kenny Still to Houston makes it seem like that’s exactly what they are doing.
There was a report last week that stated internal issues would start if the franchise dealt away Tunsil, which is exactly what they did. Maybe the players went out there and just gave up on the team, much like the team gave up on them.
