Dolphins teammates not complimentary of Turner

We often like to focus on which players are leaving positive impressions during offseason practices, but that’s not to say the opposite is off limits, either. That is precisely what appears to be the case with Dolphins second-year WR Patrick Turner.

One story making the rounds is that Turner, the Dolphins’ third-round pick last season, could be in danger of losing his roster spot. According to The Miami Herald, one teammate said Turner hasn’t shown the “urgency or work ethic” of other receivers, while two teammates “were skeptical” of his ability to stick around.

Chances are Turner, who has been held out by an undisclosed injury and falls somewhere behind Brandon Marshall, Davone Bess, Greg Camarillo and Brian Hartline on the depth chart, heard coach Tony Sparano say he wants to see growth and GM Jeff Ireland when he said “He’s got to step up.”

At this point, it has to be considered that Turner has been sufficiently called out.
