Former Miami Dolphins center and current Los Angeles Charger Mike Pouncey is upset with how things ended with the Dolphins. If you recall the Dolphins released the pro bowl center last month after he refused to take a pay cut.
On Monday Pouncey spoke with reporters in Southern California according to the Palm Beach Post. What seems to be the issues is that the team texted his agent as opposed to first contacting Pouncey to let him know about his release. Pouncey had this to say:
“They have added fuel to the fire,”
Fernando Ramirez a reporter for the local NBC affiliate tweeted out the Pouncey comments regarding the Dolphins. No comment so far from the Dolphins.
Clearly Pouncey changed his tone since his release from the Dolphins. He told the Palm Beach Post a this upon his departure:
“At the end of the day I’m a Miami Dolphin for life…This city gave me an opportunity to play in the NFL. I think it was awesome. I had a hell of a ride here.”
It is strange to see this change in tune. Pouncey did indeed ask for his release after the team had requested he take a pay cut. The Dolphins granted that request and released Pouncey.
Where did Pouncey turn bitter? Clearly he had some time to contemplate how it ended in Miami and he realized that perhaps it wasn’t done in the best fashion. That said Pouncey could be trying to recreate the scenario to be extra motivated with his new team. That could be what is going on here.
Who knows what’s going on in Pouncey’s head. He was the team’s best offensive lineman, but was riddled with injuries with the past several years. He is seemingly healthy at this point and the Chargers now have one of the best centers in the NFL. We will see if there’s more to this story of it’s really nothing on a slow offseason day.
