DAVIE–The Dolphins‘ rookies are going to have to work for it–not just their spots, but even the logos on their helmets.

As Miami gets through the second week of Organized Team Activity practices, coach Adam Gase is having all 21 rookies (seven draft picks and 14 undrafted free agents) practice in blank, white helmets.

“Maybe that’s our way of saying ‘You’ve got to earn that logo,’” he said. “That was kind of something that, talking to (equipment manager Joe Cimino) about things that maybe have been done that way in the past–we were just kicking around some ideas of doing something a little different than we did last year. We felt like that was one of the things that kind of came up that a few of us thought was a good idea, and we’ll see how it goes.”

Gase didn’t specify when the rookies would receive logos for their helmets or what they had to do to earn it.
