Gase not paying attention to report of players upset with Suh

AP

On Tuesday, the Dolphins launched the first voluntary minicamp of coach Adam Gase’s tenure. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh did not volunteer to attend.

Some teammates who chose to be there reportedly were upset with Suh. During a Wednesday visit to PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio, I asked Gase for his reaction to that report.

“Anytime you hear reports like this, it’s hard to pay attention to it because I feel like I have a good enough relationship with our players to where if they have a problem with something, my door’s wide open and if somebody has an issue with somebody else they know where to come,” Gase said. “So unless I have one of those situations come up, which I haven’t, then that’s something I really don’t want to worry about.”

It doesn’t mean the situation won’t land on Gase’s radar screen with a visit from players. It means only that, so far, it hasn’t.

  1. some are mad about SUH, what about Mario? He didn’t show and he is new to the team after coming from a rival that claimed he didn’t try last season.

  2. This is how it started with Philbin. When the inmates run the asylum, you have dysfunction. Just ask the fans of the Bills, Cowboys, and Jets!

  3. It has more to do with being a leader than these guys needing to show up to optional workouts.

    Say what you will about things being optional and having the right to skip out on them. It says quite a bit about your dedication to the team if you show up.

    Otherwise, it’s like saying ‘Eff you, I’ll still get paid.’

  4. OMG! The panic has already started – what part of VOLUNTARY do you people not get ? If it’s a mandatory camp & they don’t show up – THEN you start worrying !!

  5. I’m a Lions fan and we went through this every year with this guy. He’s a big jerk and I’m glad he’s gone. He’s a cancer and I bet they try and trade him next off season and eventually cut him.

    And they went from top 3 to giving up more points per game than Miami.

  7. I’m beginning to think that if all us Miami fans got to cherry-pick every player & coach we wanted for this roster – there’d still be a majority of fans screamin’ on PFT that “the sky is falling ” for one reason or another….you guys really crack me up….new season hasn’t even started & your all ready to pack it in – I’ll take the hand that’s dealt me any day over the likes of Rex Ryan & Co. or Bill Bechacheats bunch…..sorry I won’t include the Jets, cause Todd Bowles is a 1st class coach.

  8. Don’t blame Gase here. The Dolphins organization didn’t simply need a new HC -it needs a complete purging from top to beginning beginning with the sale of the team to competent ownership.

  9. The first day of mandatory mini camp:

    Suh: Yo, any of you guys that have a problem with me not showing up to a voluntary workout, stand up so we can go outside and settle this like men.

    Team: Silence

  10. Gase is highly respected in league circles with his peers and players. Based on his reaction I’d say Adam Beasley is not exactly portraying an accurate picture in his article.

    one of the most selfish players in NFL history
    _____________________________________

    This guy is just bitter Suh doesn’t play for his team.

  12. This is typical of the Miami media they are drama queens and look for any drama related story (like not naming names) to start trouble, Suh will come to camp in great shape and this will be what it is much to do about nothing!

  13. “Anytime you hear reports like this, it’s hard to pay attention to it because I feel like I have a good enough relationship with our players …”
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    How? He has talked to a few players for less than an hour. These voluntary workouts are the 1st time any meaningful contact has been allowed

  14. Suh isn’t doing anything different than what he did when he was with the Lions. Did Miami expect him to change his way because they overpaid him?

  15. To those emphasizing its voluntary. You’re absolutely right. What’s also absolutely right is when most, if not all, of your teammates show up and you don’t it sents a clear message. Just the way it is.

  16. If a 6 round bench setter comes 5 minutes late to a meeting he goes to the wood shed, if Danny boy or Suh shows up 5 minutes late the coach will say thank you for your prompt arrival. Case close. Bill

  17. He’s shown what he can do, He is finally making the big bucks….Time to kick back for a couple years, Take
    everything you can get from the team that broke the bank for you, and then IF he decides to play for another team after that it will be to prove he can still play then retire very wealthy. No CTE fo ol N-dom, no sir!
