DAVIE — Dolphins players arrived back at work Monday morning to find a little surprise waiting in their locker.
Well, it wasn’t a total surprise. After the Dolphins rallied to stun the Atlanta Falcons a week ago, coach Adam Gase informed the team everyone was getting a game ball. Gase made good on his promise Monday, and he did it in style.
Waiting in each locker was a wrapped game ball with the date, site, score and opponent embossed on the ball — along with the corresponding player’s name in large lettering.
It didn’t take much imagination to picture many of those balls going under glass and becoming a conversation piece.
Defensive end Terrence Fede loved the concept.
“If we have a great game all together, it should always be like that, right?” he said. “It was a whole group effort.”
