    Dolphins rookies working together in community service already




    If the Dolphins’ rookies can move the ball as well as they move a boat, Dennis Hickey picked a darn good draft class.

    It took 14 of those first-year players working in concert to get Roger Carter’s old motorboat into a dumpster Wednesday afternoon — an early indication that teamwork won’t be an issue with this group.

    “Can’t let it be like the Titanic,” one of those brand new Dolphins quipped.

    So far, the sailing has been smooth. Just a few days on the job, these young players have already fulfilled a major occupational requirement: community engagement.

    On Wednesday, they were in Fort Lauderdale, beautifying Carter’s home of more than three decades.

    Working in conjunction with the nonprofit Rebuilding Together, they pulled weeds, laid mulch, cleared debris and, yes, moved an old sport boat.

    “Hallelujah!” shouted Carter, who’s also a minister. “Frankly I want to tell you I’m overwhelmed, overjoyed, because things are good and getting better all the time.”
    Carter couldn’t have asked for a better volunteer than first-round pick Ja’Wuan James. At 6-6, James is tall enough to reach the highest spots. And he helped build houses while in college with Habitat for Humanity.

    PR attempt to counter all the bad PR of recent. The players showed up. That's the positive to be reported about the players. The initiative is corporate.

    Don't you know that we have just started working with the community? Jason taylor never won the Walter Payton award. Fields isn't looked upon highly for his helpings aroung the community and the dolphins as an orginization have never, ever once gave back to the community.....that is unitl now....

    They always partake in community service. How can there possibly be anything negative to say about this?

    This is pretty smart getting them all involved in a project like this. Some of the rookies won't be around for long but this gives them all a taste of giving back to the community and working as a team.
    I'm always interested to see which players are regularly involved in the community projects. Fields, Vernon, Tannehill, Odrick and Carroll were regular participants.

    I must say it is a bit contrived, but I think it is an attempt to get in front of a problem. JJ looks like a leader, not an animal like Pouncey and (I forgot his ****ing name thank god). I am a naive moron who thinks perhaps we can set a tone and hopefully make this bigger than the alternative. its worth a try, rather than letting asshole veterans set the tone for "professionalism"

    the Bullygate thing is a blessing for the NFL. if a GM drafts a coward and signs a bully and insists on converting the coward into "something"(rather than get a real LT) based on his draft status then we need to say "you lost, you drafted the wrong guy and this isn't Nazi Germany". JJ is a human being, if he doesn't repond to coaching then shame on the GM, get a ****ing short term RT in her and move on.
