We mentioned recently a report that the Dolphins were planning on shuffling their linebackers, and moving Koa Misi to the middle.
Apparently, the guy in the middle of that plan isn’t crazy about it.
According to Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, a team source said Misi “is not on board with the plan.”
The source said Misi told coaches he wasn’t sure about the added responsibilities and mental requirements, with the source noting “It’s too much for him.”
Putting Misi in the middle would have allowed them to rotate two of Jeff Ireland’s last big buys as G.M., with Dannell Ellerbe moving from the middle to the weakside, and Philip Wheeler from weakside to strongside.
But if Misi isn’t interested in going along with it, the plan doesn’t make much sense.
Nor does a player asking out of increased responsibility.
