I found this nugget in CBS Sportsline. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Could this old fart really have helped our running game and pass protection last year as opposed to Spencer Folau? Who knows. But still its an interesting story...
Last year Sept. 10, the Dolphins called Jumbo Elliott and told them they want him to fly down the next day and sign to become their starting left tackle. After much talk with family and friends, Elliott decided to head south and was booked on a morning flight. Just before he was to leave for the airport, the Trade Center was attacked and, obviously, Jumbo phoned them to say forget it.
The Dolphins did not understand at the time exactly what had happened and still tried to get him to come down there Sept. 11. Not a shot. Jumbo is a Jet again.
