    He has had some curious tweets the past 24 hours. He says he is not playing tonight, how he misses California, South Florida isn't as nice and that God must have a plan that he will realize it in a few months. Very odd.

    Let's trade him for Riley Cooper and a bag of footballs. He better get his act together and stop crying about south florida not being nice.

    Nut then he answers a reply pretty much like this.

    "Your thinking to much I to it, don't take it out of context", maybe he's not even talking about football.

    people really do over think twitter, he probably does miss his family and home, he is the same age as me, I cant say I can say I blame him, im sure those feelings are very common in sports, especially among younger players, it doesn't meant he isnt committed to the team.

    He's an extremely religious guy who maybe feels a little homesick and has been frustrated by his injury. On top of that he sees the high level of competition that he's facing from the veterans and with Will Davis making a lot of interceptions. I wouldn't read too much into it. He will come good.

    He probably feels dejected because his injury has inhibited his ability to make an immediate impact. He sees guys like DJ and Will Davis having great camps, and feels like he doesent belong.

    I've also noticed some strange behavior from him recently Nubs.

    During an interview that was posted on the teams website a reporter asked what does he make of Will Davis's success during camp, he basically proceeded to take credit for it by stating how much of an influence he's been to him and how he's helped Will learn the playbook.

    And frankly I believe this is the main problem, along with him still nursing an injury and probably not performing to his expectations.

    But think about it, you come into camp drafted higher than a fellow rookie who happens to play the same position as you, yet the other guy has exceeded his draft selection slot and has taken your spot as the highly touted young CB on the team. Jealousy and animosity can surely set in.

    Plus factor in home sickness and the overall feeling of not 'fitting' in and sadly you have a recipe for disaster.

    Just my opinion, but I believe he is merely being outshined and is now finding ways to self-destruct.

    its called being home sick. Someppl don't translate to a move as good others, the scenerary, the ppl your around, your home, everything changes and it takes quite awhile for it to be called home again. Combine with the injury and camp progress has not been going good for him and you have stress building up. I feel for the dude, hope he hangs in there and gets past this. We need him.

    Can a man have his own thoughts? You are guys are something. Remember this guy is young, and has had his own setbacks in camp. Let him be human. The only think I would tell him is to be careful about something like twitter to express himself so that he doesn't have to defend himself to South Florida.

    He hasn't had the best of circumstances in this camp. And being homesick is not an unusual thing. I would be careful to read too much in to this. All I would tell him is to be careful about who he expresses himself to. Social media is not very nice or forgiving.

    Thank you. I was pulling my hair out trying to remember that name and could only come up with his first name, which I think was Dimitrius.

    our 2nd round draft pick is having an emotional breakdown on twitter. EVERYONE should be concerned. Maybe a bad breakup or something but COME THE **** ON BRO

    Probably not 100% coming off the injury and a little homesick. Hopefully he can regain a little confidence once he gets on the field and makes a play or two.

    Seeing Davis blow it up in practice actually should be encouraging. There are positions to be had in our secondary. Stop whining and go get one of them rook.

    I don't see anything wrong, other than he seems determined to be the least interesting person on twitter.

    This why I dont like twitter. I have a twitter on there as well and I just ramble on about stupid **** that has nothing to do with anything. It sounds like he is kind of lonely to me, and that has nothing to do with football. But like I said people only pay attention to tweets they want too whether it means anything or nothing at all. If it IS something big we will find out soon. I hope it is nothing about being in Miami because I am excited to see him play!

    Nothing to see here... Taylor is the better corner out of the 2. Remember that Davis hasn't had to go against real physical competition yet, that is the weak area of his game. Taylor, on the other hand is extremely physical and has some major upside, maybe more than Davis. I'm sure he knows this himself.

    He'll be fine, just homesick is all.

    Ireland seems to enjoy drafting 2 players who play the same position. Eg Vontae Davis and Sean Smith, Brian Hartline and Patrick Turner, Philip Merling and Kendall Langford. This year's version is Jamar Taylor and Will Davis. While Vontae and smith were both made it as starters, the consistent trend has been that the lower draftee has outperformed the more fancied prospect with higher expectations.
    It's still early days but Davis is so enthusiastic and eager to succeed, that Taylor is just looking to get himself 100% to show what he can do.

    just cause they started doesn't mean they were good though. They started because that was the best we had. I guess they were both average.

    No need to worry, it's an adjustment for him. Rookies have moments like this quite a bit. It's an adjustment period.

    He doesn't like So. Fla? It could be worse. He could be in Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati or Green Bay.
    How does he think Reggie Bush or Aaron Rogers feel? They both came from California and now have to practice their trades in some of the most boring (and least scenic) cities in the country

    I love the pick, but I also wanted a trade for Branden Albert. So, if Martin fails at LT and or Taylor bows out somehow...just not good.

    He started up today again. Now he's discussing his hernia issue, and saying how a coach at Boise state taught him not to make excuses..

    I want this kid to succeed. But no way should a rookie be taking to twitter to air out emotionally. I guarantee you Philbin is monitoring this situation closely.

    This is where the coaches and his teammates need to take him under their wings and explain to him that you can sulk and feel sorry for yourself, or you can use your setback as a great motivator to be the absolute best he can be.

    If you think him telling people on twitter the details of his hernia situation isn't noticed by the front office, you're clueless.

    And people get sad, get homesick, get depressed, and have tough times. It's normal. If you air it out on twitter, which can be done for no other reason then to call attention to your "plight", you're being a dramatic little girl.

    I guess the moral of the story is that i don't want players on my team acting like 15 year old girls. But thats just me.

    You are 100% correct. The tragedy of Jamar's recent groin strain. Maybe he needs to spend a bit of one on one time with Cam Wake and then visit a veterans hospital and see some guys who are really overcoming adversity from war injuries.

    He's allowed to say whatever he wants to say. If he doesn't think South Florida is as nice as California he has a right to that opinion. Good for him!!!
