Reshad Jones, Jarvis Landry named co-MVPs for Dolphins
To get a gauge of just how disappointing the Miami Dolphins have been this season, take a look at their 2016 Pro Bowlers. There's one of them, and it's Mike Pouncey. There weren't many players truly deserving of the nod, but Reshad Jones and Jarvis Landry were two that came to mind as candidates.
They won't be going to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, but they were honored by the team for their play this season by being named co-MVPs. They're no officially Dan Marino Most Valuable Player Award winners, which is a testament to how solid they've been.
Landry has already set a franchise record with 104 catches this season and became the ninth Dolphins player to go over 1,000 yards receiving. Additionally, he has the most receptions through two seasons of any player in NFL history.
As for Jones, he's been a do-it-all safety on the back end. He leads the team with 131 tackles, which is also fourth in the NFL. He's added two sacks, five interceptions and two touchdowns, and been the star of the defense week in and week out. He's the first safety to win team MVP and the second defensive back (Brent Grimes in 2013).
In addition to naming team MVPs, the Dolphins also announced that Pouncey won the Don Shula Leadership Award, Branden Albert won the Ed Block Courage Award and Michael Thomas won the Nat Moore Community Service Award.
