Dolphins experiment with Earl Mitchell at fullback
Miami expands offense
DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins tried an interesting offensive experiment Sunday.
The Fins lined up defensive lineman Earl Mitchell at fullback.
Mitchell caught a few passes from Ryan Tannehill out of of the backfield.
Mitchell played fullback at the University of Arizona as a freshman and sophomore.
"You know he definitely wants the rock," LaMike James said.
Even coach Joe Philbin admitted Mitchell catching passes brought "a little levity" to practice.
