Post Miami Dolphins rookie safety Jonathon Amaya relishes chance

Fast, hard-hitting and willing to sacrifice his body, free agent Jonathon Amaya is a safety by trade, but might wriggle onto Miami's roster via special teams

BY DAVID J. NEAL
dneal@MiamiHerald.com
When rookie free agent safety Jonathon Amaya said he will do anything to make the Dolphins roster, he means it. He has done it. Tell Amaya all he has is a walk-on's chance to make the roster and he has to impress quickly, and that's fine with him. He has done that, too.


...

Ask Ryan Mathews. He is the Fresno State running back the San Diego Chargers wanted so badly at No. 12 overall, they tossed the Dolphins a second-round pick to swap positions in the first round and the fourth round of the NFL Draft. Mathews and Amaya came together during last season's Fresno State-Nevada game. Amaya got up for the next play. Mathews' next play was two games later, after his concussion retreated.


``It wasn't even a big, powerful hit,'' Amaya said.

...

``He can return punts, kickoffs; he can be a gunner on the outside,'' Wilson said. ``He can block field goals. He did everything for us on special teams. He wants to be in the middle of everything. He gets made if you take him off the field, especially for special teams.''


That's often where you find players like Amaya if they take advantage of the one thing he asked for at Nevada and is thankful he got from the Dolphins: a chance.

Good read we need more players like this,the kind of guys who like doing all the dirty work. Looks like he could be the replacement to 1st round bust at safty & (cb) J.Allen. But lets wait and see how he does when camp really starts up.

Fast, hard hitting, and versatile... I hope he continues to impress.
