There are numerous current and former NFL who hail from the greater Miami area; South Florida is a hotbed for football talent. Buffalo Bills rookie running back Devin Singletary and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson grew up just 10 minutes from each other, and in September 2006 Singletary's Deerfield Beach Packer-Rattlers were playing Jackson's Pompano Cowboys in the SFYFL North Division. As Singletary remembers it, on one play he made Jackson miss.

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins are in a much different spot than they were the last time they faced the New York Jets. Then they went out and embarrassed the Jets 26-18.

Late-bloomer Parker becomes centerpiece in Dolphins’ rebuild

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

DeVante Parker has become such an eye-catching receiver that even he is talking about it. The Miami Dolphins wideout is a man of few words, but in his first four NFL seasons, attempts to let his play do the talking were a bit of a bust. Miami's 2015 first-round pick developed a reputation as an underachiever unable or unwilling to play through nagging injuries, and there was some head-scratching around the league in March when the Dolphins gave him a $10 million, two-year contract.

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

Having the punter pass to the place-kicker with eight of their teammates split way wide was the brainchild of Miami Dolphins special teams coordinator Danny Crossman, who says such trick plays tend to percolate in his mind. ''There are always things popping into your head,'' Crossman said Tuesday. The play called ''Mountaineer Shot'' finally made it into a game Sunday, when the Dolphins sprung it on the Philadelphia Eagles after shifting out of field goal formation on fourth down.
