Miami Dolphins Could Replace Incognito with Bullying Victim and Former NDSU Player Billy Turner
One of the biggest stories in the NFL last season was the bullying controversy that took place in Miami. The Dolphins have officially moved on from Richie Incognito and they may replace him with a bullying victim and former NDSU Bison player: Billy Turner.
In a recent interview with The Miami Herald, Turner described being bullied growing up:
I was the one getting bullied all the time by my older brother when I was growing up. When I started playing football, I played up with older guys. I came in and played center right away, and everyone thought they were going to beat me up and bully me because I was younger. They thought I was going to be soft.
But I just got out there and unleashed my anger. The anger I had built up from getting mad and [peeved] at my older brother was what came out in my play. That’s how I developed that strategy and that style of playing with a chip on my shoulder.
Turner will battle with fellow rookie Ja'Wuan James for a spot on the Dolphins offensive line. Here's what Turner had to say about the possibility of starting for the Dolphins this season:
I don’t know if I’m going start. I don’t know if I’m going to play this year. But at the same time, I’m trying to do everything I can to help this team as soon as possible.
The Dolphins begin their season in Miami against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
