DAVIE, Fla. The last test most Miami Dolphins players took was the Wonderlic prior to entering the NFL draft. Maybe it's time for a new exam.
There's a debate on the Dolphins as to what position features the smartest players. Perhaps this needs to be settled by a multiple-choice quiz.
It all started when tight end Charles Clay spoke up for his group. Clay is expected to start in Sunday's opener at Cleveland.
"Just playing tight end you have to know what everybody on the field is doing," Clay said. "I like to say that, outside of quarterback, the tight ends are usually the smartest people on the field."
Told of what Clay said, Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller said "we definitely believe that because we have to know most everything on the passing game and pretty much everything on the run game." Keller recently was lost for the season due to a knee injury, but perhaps Miami could use him as another assistant coach considering the intelligence tight ends allegedly possess.
