Quote of the Day

Miami Dolphins rookie safety Jevon Holland on what has surprised him about NFL offenses compared to when he was at Oregon:

"I think NFL offenses, the aspect of them going to the sideline and changing the plays and then coming back and attacking our defenses, I think that's – I like football, so it fascinates me that they're able to make in-game adjustments just like that. And then us too, making in-game adjustments. I think that part for me is really exciting."
