Dannell Ellerbe may have leaked the Dolphins’ new logo

After the Dolphins signed receiver Brian Hartline, some thought that the team’s new logo inadvertently was leaked via the etching in the table at which Hartline applied his Hancock.

It wasn’t.

But new Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe possibly took it to the next level, based on the logo he has attached to his verified Twitter page.

I’ll ask the Dolphins for comment.  Once I get more accustomed to the fact that I am in a plane that has left the ground.

Thanks to the reader named James who pointed this out.

UPDATE 5:55 p.m. ET:  And, of course, new Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller has posted a completely different logo  on his Twitter page.  So never mind.  I’ll blame it all on the altitude.

  1. Not very intimidating.
    In fact, it looks incredibly goofy……much like the owner.

  2. Looks mean. Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we may have found the missing killer dolphin trained by the Ukraine army.

  3. It’s a user created logo that was done. it’s not the actual logo that will be unveiled around April 18th prior to the draft.

    There are a lot of logos out there and some have been around for years.

    But this is not it.

  4. The Dolphin lost his helmet, and closed his eyes?

    Oh, now the Keller one is way way different.

    I don’t get the secrecy of minor uniform changes, you would think the NFL would hire Seal Team 6 to secure these possible leaks.

  5. Even a basic Internet search would have revealed that the logo on Ellerbe’s account is fan-made.

  6. At least he didn’t twitter that Ed Reed has all the leverage in his negotiations.

  7. Ellerbe’s is way tighter than Keller’s. I hope that’s their new logo. The Dolphins currently have one if the top 3 ugliest logos in sports. the dolphin with the white helmet reminds me of the old Patriot in the 3 point stance logo or the old Broncos D logo. Just hideous.

  8. All new contracts come with a misdirection clause. Each player has to display a bogus logo throw people off track and bring the team attention.

    Seriously though, was reported a week or so ago that the tail would be upturned like in Keller’s logo.

  9. Unless they sign Dan Marino in his prime it wont make any difference on the standings still same Miami Dolphins just a new logo.

  10. The only time their name, “Dolphins” carried any threat was when Larry Csonka mowed people down. I used to love to watch him.

  11. i don’ think either is the new logo but im sure whatever they come up with will be better than the old one.

  12. They really should just change their name to the Fins. Shorten it up the way the Tampa Bay Devil Rays did. That way the logo could be a shark/dolphin/any other fish. Opens up many more possibilities. #FinsUp

  13. They’ve been tinkering with logos ever since they went to Nike. By the looks of them all, they just seem a little less detailed or tweaked in ways that make it easier to mass produce.

    The Dolphins logo is the one I have seen that is clearly changed in style, rather than minor tweaks of others.

  14. What’s missing in the Fins logo is multiple Dolphins, at least three. The Dolphin will never strike fear but the concept of strength in numbers might be the best case scenario.

  15. What is different?? Looks like a dolphin…. On a side note is the thing really named “snowflake”???

  16. If the Dolphins are going to make the mistake that is changing one of the better old school logos in the NFL, why just remove the little helmet from the dolphin and make it look angry? Have to go bold like what the Broncos did 15 years ago (accept for those horrible vertical strips from the arm pit to the knee).

  17. I don’t think there is even a remote chance of drawing up a Dolphin that is intimidating or at least somewhat tough looking. I mean c’mon, Its a Dolphin for god’s sake! It’s kind of on the same level as a Cardinal, Packer or 49er. You can only do so much with that.

    Who cares? Seen one dolphin you’ve seen them all. They aren’t exactly ferocious!

    I’ve heard of dolphins aggressively trying to “mount” swimmers both female and male, that’s scary enough for me! 🙂

  19. If you really believe, a pissed off Dolphin who has a swim burst close to 30 mph inst dangerous go so fla and try it. They have teeth like a shark but one only sees the tips of those teeth when it opens its mouth. Tag alone with me when im fishing the islands of Caya Costa, Captiva and Boca Grand pass.

  20. So you guys really think he just pulled this off of google? He just signed a multi million dollar contract for petets sake. I would think the guy has some kind of inside track of whats going on…not just randomly getting pics from google…

    tell me this…Have you seen a BETTER logo for the phins?>..think about it..

  21. Sorry guys, it seems as if more people like the more traditional yet refined logo that Ellerbe posted but I’m almost 95% positive that the Keller logo is the new one and will be unveiled next month before the draft.
