    Cut and replace those that don’t show or don’t have an excuse from Gase. Should have 100% participation if they truly want to be great!

    "Cut and replace" negates 'voluntary'

    And also negates getting familiar with your new teammates and doing whatever it takes to make your team better

    I think sometimes stories are written just to take up space.

    Although the story is a little over the top, the premise of what he is saying makes sense.

    It'd be nice to have everyone there of course but I don't expect that. What I want is for the o-line to gel together in TC and the new WR's to get on the same page with Tannehill. Those two right there are the main ones imo

    Here's the problem...

    Most NFL teams want players to buy into a college like atmosphere where the team knows best. The team will put you on a diet program and manage your weight, the team will tell you how to work out, etc... because the TEAM knows what's best for you..... But when it comes to contract time... "It's business" and the team will spend months identifying all of the things that are wrong with you so that they don't have to pay you what you're asking for..

    Players aren't that naive anymore. Players know that the team doctors and nutritionist and coaches aren't always right, don't always have the players best interest in mind and are human and therefore subjected to being wrong, or driven by personal agendas. This is why many players work with personal coaches, Dr's and Nutritionist. They're professionals making a lot of money and can afford to take a vested interest in their own development and health.

    It's been proven that a player can come to all of the voluntary stuff, OTA's etc... and do everything the team wants, but if the TEAM decides they're no longer needed... they're sent packing.
