Dolphins | Jimmy Unhappy with NFL

Fri, 11 Jun 1999 01:45:00 -0700

The Miami Herald reports Miami Dolphins head coach isn't very happy with the NFL after they encouraged the Dolphins to allow rookies to attend a promotional event earlier in the year. RB Cecil Collins, as reported on June 2nd, twisted his back on a trampoline and was forced to miss some time in the Dolphins' camp. While this was a NFLPA event, it was not a league event. The Dolphins have related this to a situation, although not as severe, as the one that has possibly ended the career of Patriots' RB Robert Edwards. ``Here's a guy [Collins] who could be a real key for us, and he gets hurt in something stupid,'' a Dolphins' staff member told the Miami Herald. ``You know guys can get hurt walking across the street, but you live with that. We thought this was going to be a few photos taken, and then all of a sudden they're jumping off trampolines. You get guys like that together and it becomes a competition thing and then it really gets stupid.''

NFL | Combine Tidbits

Sun, 07 Mar 1999 11:20:00 -0800

Tony Grossi reported in the Cleveland Plain Dealer some notes about the recent combine in Indianapolis. A potential red flag went up on RB Ricky Williams when his outstretched hand only measured seven inches diagonally from pinky to thumb. That would be considered a fairly small hand and raised a question about a potential fumble issue at the NFL level. There were 323 players at the combine and a record 100 declined to participate in the drills. The fastest 40-yard dash times were 4.37 seconds, CB Paul Miranda (Central Florida), 4.41 seconds, RB Cecil Collins, (Ex-McNeese St.) and 4.42 seconds, WR Tai Streets (Michigan). The highest vertical jump: 43.5 inches, RB Jerry Azumah (New Hampshire), 42 inches, S Pierson Prioleau (Virginia Tech), 41.5 inches, RB De'Mond Parker (Oklahoma) and WR Derrius Thompson (Baylor). OT Aaron Gibson (Wisconsin) was the heaviest player at 386 pounds and the lightest non-kicking player was DB Marvin Love (Kentucky) at 164 pounds.
