The Dolphins kick off their offseason program on Monday, which means head coach Adam Gase will get to formally work with the team for the first time since getting the job in January.
Like many other teams, the Dolphins have organized some workouts on their own ahead of the official start of the team sessions. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the team’s receivers don’t have playbooks yet, but they’ve been working on routes gleaned from Gase’s past stops.
“I’ve watched more Denver stuff so far,” Tannehill said, via the Miami Herald. “I’m sure I’ll get into a little more Chicago stuff. But I’ve watched more Denver stuff at this point, just seeing things they did well there with Peyton [Manning]. I’m excited about what I see. I think the more I watch, the more excited I am about the things they did and the things we’re going to be doing.”
Tannehill said the team is running “routes a little differently than we have in the past” and that they’ve improved as they’ve adjusted over the last few weeks. They’ll get to start putting that work to use in the full offense next week and the hope in Miami is that the payoff will be as exciting as the research.
