The Dolphins have narrowed the competition to three players for kickoff and punt returns. During Sunday's practice, the only three players at the returner position was Marcus Thigpen, Jarvis Landry and Damien Williams. All three of them showed flashed on Friday night but it was Landry who stole the show with a 48-yard punt return.
“I just made one cut, got vertical and made a play,” Landry said. “I can’t say thank you to coach [Darren] Rizzi enough for giving me a chance and giving me an opportunity to really do it after not having too much film of doing it.”
It is something worth keeping an eye on but this could be the end of the road for Thigpen if the Dolphins begin to trust in Landry more and more each day.
