Dolphins Ryan Tannehill: "Now I can assert myself"

Published Add your comment

Miami Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill believes that the team can put the bullying scandal behind them and described the Dolphins locker room as: "healthy."

Tannehill believes that the Dolphins are ready to put the ordeal behind them and move on stating that: "There's no more being anxious about it coming out. We've had the consequences and repercussions, and now we can put it in the past and move forward. I think it's behind us at this point."

Now in his third season, Tannehill promised to take more of a leadership role among the team and claimed that: "At this point, hopefully I have some respect ... and now I can assert myself."

Following the recent bullying scandal and the release of 140+ page report that Tannehill admitted he couldn't make it all the way through, the AFC East team are in need of some much needed leadership and guidance and their Quarterback believes he is the man to give it to them.

It is some much needed positive press to come to a locker room that is currently very low on morale, despite the scandal, the Miami offence has just rounded off a fairly poor season.

In particular their offensive line which will be in desperate need of some new faces after they allowed 59 sacks last season- 11 more than any other NFL side.

Tannehill believes he is the man to guide the Dolphins to the next level but unless they strengthen their offence this off-season, fans may be in for another disappointing year.
