Even though Belicheat has very good players and good coaching, he also looks for an edge such as "trickeration" ... and cheating (which hope doesn't make it's way to Miami).

The Dolphins are not permitting reporters to reveal how players are specifically being used in OTAs.

But… The Dolphins’ deployment of one member of their defensive backfield from last season (hint: not Minkah Fitzpatrick) has been very creative and eye-opening. (Sorry we aren’t allowed to tell you more.) Not sure a team with such little experienced front-seven talent can be very good defensively, but the “trickeration” (to borrow ESPN college host Rece Davis’ term) and disguising can only help. These defensive coaches know what they’re doing.
