The Miami Dolphins selected lineman Ja’Waun James out of Tennessee to help rebuild their offensive line in the wake of Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin alleged bullying incident that landed Martin with the 49ers and cost Incognito his NFL career (so far).
Center Mike Pouncey, who reportedly had an outside role in the incident, somehow thought it was a good idea to tweet this joke about his new teammate:
Look; I’m all in favor of a little humor and honestly it probably isn’t/won’t be a big deal at all. But joking about hazing your new teammate so soon after the hazing of your former teammate caused such an uproar probably wasn’t the best idea.
Pouncey should probably use better judgement from here on out, especially when it comes to referencing hazing his rookie teammate publicly.

Now that the 2014 NFL Draft has concluded, the madness that is un-drafted free agency is set to begin.
The Miami Dolphins entered the weekend with 63 players on the roster and have made eight draft selections, bringing the total to 71 players. Teams are permitted to enter camp with 90 players on the roster, which means like the other 31 NFL organizations, the Dolphins will be busy...
Tonight in New York City, with some of the biggest names off the draft board, the Dolphins clued in their fans and media that they would look offensive line with pick #19.
With the selection of Ja’wuan James, out of Tennessee, the Dolphins acquire a big right tackle that could be in the league for years to come. James towers over most offensive linemen at 6’6″ and 311 pounds...
Dolphins fans are already getting excited about new Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry. Well it’s not only fans who are excited about the pick, former Dolphins WR OJ McDuffie has praise for the new Fins WR as well.

The Dolphins made the new additions to the roster in the first two days of the draft.
Like every other fan base their are Dolphins fans who loves Dennis Hickeys draft thus far and there are other fans disappointed and left wanting more. To get a little more of an understanding of the 3 newest Dolphins here are some NFL comparables.
James will be the Dolphins starting...
There’s dumb. There’s stupid. There’s idiotic. There’s brainless. And then there’s Mike Pouncey. He’s worse than all of that. Pouncey undoubtedly won the award for worst tweet sent during the NFL Draft when he talked about hazing the Miami Dolphins’ first-round pick, Ja’Wuan James: Does it even matter if he sent this in jest? Of […]
It was an eventful Friday night for Dennis Hickey.
After standing pat in round 1, the Miami Dolphins made three trades on Day 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft. First, the Dolphins traded the 50th pick to the Chargers for the 57th and an additional 4th round selection (125th overall). Once they were on the clock at No.57, they traded back once again, this time with the 49ers to acquire the...
It often seems that whoever is in leadership for the Dolphins doesn’t have a plan when it comes to the offseason, in particular the NFL Draft. This, as I’m sure it does many others, annoys me to no end. Well, for better or for worse, Dennis Hickey has a plan and he’s sticking to it.
Hickey inherited a team which allowed 58 sacks in 2013, a league high, and most since 2009....

Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes that the Dolphins decision to select LSU WR Jarvis Landry in the second-round could be an indication that they are prepared to part ways with veteran WR Brian Hartline after the 2014 season.
Abramson mentions that Landry is more of a possession receiver, which happens to be Hartline’s role for the team over the past few seasons....
DAVIE, Fla. -- In his first draft as Miami Dolphins general manager, Dennis Hickey established a clear model for the franchise's future.
Versatility. Character. Leadership. Experience.
Heading into the draft, Miami displayed obvious needs for help on the offensive line, at linebacker and in the secondary. Hickey stayed focused on filling needs. He picked up a couple more targets...
After getting a huge monkey off their back with the selection of Ja’Wuan James last night, the Dolphins can move on from offensive tackle and take more of a best player available approach. I don’t think Miami should be bound to any position, or even two or three positions, come pick number 50.
With that said, I do think they will either target a Wide Receiver, taking advantage...

The Dolphins weren’t teasing when they used five of their 30 out-of-town visits on wide receivers.
Miami used its second round draft pick on LSU’s Jarvis Landry, trading down 13 spots for the 63rd overall pick.
The Dolphins then traded up and took offensive tackle Billy Turner with the 67th overall pick in the 3rd round.

Miami moved back twice in the second round before selecting wide receiver Jarvis Landry from LSU with the 63rd overall pick. The Dolphins then swapped picks to move up in the third round, selecting offensive lineman Billy Turner out of North Dakota...
