ESPN published a feature this week on players who went all last season without missing a snap, and no Dolphins made it.
New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees led the list of 34 players with perfect attendance by playing all 1,153 offensive snaps for the Saints at age 37. Of those 34, 26 were offensive linemen. The only non-quarterbacks or offensive linemen to play every snap for their team were Rams linebacker Alec Olgetree, Raiders safety Reggie Nelson, Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Lions safety Glover Quin.
Who came the closest for the Dolphins? Their offensive linemen, of course.
Jermon Bushrod, a 32-year-old in his 10th season, made it through all 16 games while missing just two of Miami’s 948 snaps, according to Pro Football Reference. The next closest were right tackle Ja’Wuan James (98.6 percent), receiver Jarvis Landry (94.1), linebacker Kiko Alonso (91.1), left guard Laremy Tunsil (84.6) and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (84.5).
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was at 100 percent prior to injuring his knee against the Cardinals in December.
