Dolphins release reserve DT who fought Kenyan Drake Monday

It’s that time of year in training camp, where the days are hot and after awhile, the tempers get hot, too.

It happened in Jaguars camp involving Dante Fowler, as he and fellow defensive lineman Yannick Ngakoue got into a near fight and had to be separated by teammates. Eventually, Fowler was suspended for the rest of this week, because of his actions.

Well, on Monday a reserve defensive tackle, Gabe Wright, did wrong. And the wrong he did has caused the team to get rid of him:

Wright made the mistake of throwing a punch at starting running back Kenyan Drake and a scuffle that involved multiple teammates trying to break it up ensued. And the media even perked up watching it unfold:

And now, the fourth year vet, who was with his third team, is being made an example out of for his actions.

Head coach Adam Gase wasn’t scheduled to talk with the media on Monday. Instead it was an opportunity for the coordinators, Dowell Loggains on offense and Matt Burke on defense, to answer questions.

Loggains talked in general terms about the “dust up” that happened with Wright and Drake,

“Everyone is getting tired of hitting each other. In camp, that’s what happens in the NFL about this time every year, every team.”

Meanwhile, at Bucs camp Monday, their coach Dirk Koetter already sounded a warning to his team, as they prepare to head to Nashville and practice this week with the Titans.

Koetter told the media that he’s already been over certain players on his roster with Titans new coach Mike Vrabel, who did the same, and if there’s trouble, those players will be sent off the field to the locker room.

It remains to be seen if, which players, will have that punishment put on them come Tuesday and Wednesday.

The same applies here with the Dolphins. Had this been Cam Wake, Robert Quinn, etc. who got into with Drake, they may have been sent to the locker room. But, not to the waiver wire.

That’s where someone like Gabe Wright has to know their place.

He does now.
