One of the positions on the 2014 Dolphins that has the most players with a lot of potential is the secondary. With Cortland Finnegan, Jamar Taylor, Will Davis and Louis Delmas expected to be big contributors, a key question remains - can Finnegan and Delmas stay healthy and can Taylor and David take the next step to becoming solid players?
“We looked good,” Brent Grimes said after Saturday’s scrimmage. “We made some plays. Of course, it’s still training camp. It’s still essentially a practice, so there are some things we need to get better with. But as for the most part, we did well. Got some turnovers. That’s what you want.”
In terms of communication and how the secondary is gelling together, Grimes said that everything is coming along the way it should,
“That’s a key for the secondary. People might not notice, but we talk a lot out there. We know where we’re supposed to be. And for having two guys that weren’t here last year, they’re doing exceptionally well and they’re picking it up fast.”
If those players can stay healthy and they can step up and improve from 2013, it can be one of the elite secondaries in the NFL in 2014.
