DAVIE — Receiver Kenny Stills, one of the most socially active Dolphins, called for a solution to such tragic events as the one that left 58 dead on the Las Vegas strip.
“I always struggle to find the words when things like this happen,” Stills said Monday. “Really, just saddened by things that are going on, obviously. People always tweet about praying for the people in what’s happened out there but I think there needs to be some action taken.
“We’ve got to figure out ways to keep stuff like this from happening. My heart and my prayers go out to everyone that’s been affected out there and I just hope that we can do something to resolve the things that are happening.”
Stills hopes solutions are found sooner, not later.
“You just hope that we could all put our minds together to stop things like this from happening,” he said. “There’s no better time than now.”
Even though the team didn’t arrive back at its Davie training facility following a flight from London until 2:45 a.m. Monday, guard Jermon Bushrod didn’t go right to bed when he got home.
“I got home last night and I saw the news and I was so upset, so hurt about it,” Bushrod said. “I mean, it’s a bad time for the people of Las Vegas and for our country. It’s not a good look. We’re sending our thoughts and prayers with everyone affected. And to everyone who helped out, they’re heroes in the whole situation.”
