You know its slow this time of year, and football writers are chomping at the bit, they finally have something to write about, practice. Pat White missed a day of practice and the football press, starving from the off season jumped all over it. The reason given for the absence was “personal issues”, which really gets the rumor mill going. Everything from missing the season to being traded has been floated out there. It seems its much to do about nothing, Pat returned to practice today.
Following these developments for the last two days, I see a little smoke but no fire quite yet. The Dolphins did bring in another quarterback Tommy Grady, but I see it as a business decision. They thought an arm would be gone and wanted another. The possibility of a trade or even a release is real as the QB spot is becoming a bit crowded at 5 deep. It may be time and accept any role to get on the field and stay on the team. As for the last two days I just think something went down and he had to go get it taken care of, it happens to us all, we just don’t have an army of sports writers speculating every time we take a sick day.
