The Miami Dolphins are one of the NFL teams that permits their locker room to determine who the leaders are on the group.

The Dolphins are the NFL’s second-youngest roster with an average age of 25 years of age, but yet that didn’t prevent the Dolphins from having a variety of candidates to represent the group in a captain’s function.
Brian Flores revealed on Monday that the Dolphins have voted on their team captains: here are the 8 gamers who will represent Miami as their primary leaders as voted on by the rest of the roster.

Ryan Fitzpatrick – The second-year Dolphin has seen plenty throughout his time in the NFL and his capability to stimulate the remainder of the offense makes him a no-brainer to hold the title of captain. He’s an elder-statesman on this group but he’s got the respect of everybody.
Ted Karras – Karras will be the glue on the offending line as the guy in the middle. His experiences in New England have actually assisted to mold him for this chance as a starter– and as someone in an agreement year he’s inspired to maximize his chance.
Jesse Davis – Davis is the lone returning starter on the line from last year. Davis has the versatility to play nearly any position on the line and his journey from a bottom of the lineup developmental player to where he is now offers him the experience to coach and guide his colleagues.

Kyle Van Noy – Van Noy is the defense’s version of Ryan Fitzpatrick. He’s been around the block, he’s had lots of success in New England and he’s the 2nd earliest player on the group– which you already know the Dolphins players tease him about. Van Noy understands this defense like the back of his hand and will serve an important management role.
Elandon Roberts – Roberts, much like Karras, has actually been biding his time for a chance to shine. He didn’t get it in New England last season and concerned Miami to reunite with Brian Flores and show he can be a starter. His winning pedigree from New England definitely matters, too– reports indicate he’s been a singing presence for the Dolphins so far.
Bobby McCain – McCain is among the longest tenured Dolphins on the lineup. And the team plainly believes in him: they chose not to buy a replacement free security in spite of McCain playing in simply nine games last season. He’s an energetic spark plug and will provide energy for the defense.

Clayton Fejedelem – Fejedelem served as an unique groups captain for the Bengals in the past, so there need to be not a surprises that he’s serving the very same role for the Dolphins as an under the radar addition for the Dolphins this offseason.
Kavon Frazier – Frazier comes from another winning program in Dallas and has actually had to scratch and claw to find a specific niche as a former 6th-round draft selection. His journey to Miami gives him the experience required to lead and “walk the walk” for this young Dolphins’ roster.
