The Blitz: Friday February 26

Ogbah's Impact

The start of the new league year is less than three weeks away. Last March, the Dolphins acquired a handful of immediate-impact players via the free agent market, players like defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah.

Ogbah played a substantial role for a defense that finished first in takeaways (29) and third-down defense (31.2 percent). His team-leading nine sacks helped the Dolphins to their best single-season sack total (41) since 2013 (42). Six of Ogbah's nine sacks occurred over a six-week period, a streak that finished behind only Hall of Famer Jason Taylor's eight-game streak in 2002 in franchise history.

Friday, Ogbah joined the Drive Time Podcast with Travis Wingfield to talk about his favorite pass rush moves, playing multiple positions and the offseason training regimen that prepared him for his career-year.

You can download the full interview on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.

This is Ogbah's third appearance on Drive Time with Travis Wingfield. During the season, he told his family’s story of coming to America (Houston, Texas) from Lagos, Nigeria when he was just nine years old.
