    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    Daryl Gardener was Jimmy Johnson’s first-round draft choice in 1996, Johnson’s first year as the Miami Dolphins head coach. A giant amongst giants, Gardener stood 6 feet 6 inches tall and weighed more than 300 pounds, and quickly joined Tim Bowens in the middle of the Dolphins defensive line creating a two-man wrecking crew. On a hot August day in 2001, however, Gardener’s size and strength weren’t enough to prevent O.J. from taking issue with the defensive tackle’s approach to a two-minute drill. Now in The Tank, Juice recalls the conflict, and a moment that changed his life forever in this special training camp edition of our podcast.

    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    After an 11-year, successful stint as a private investigator for NFL Security, Stu Weinstein became one of the pioneers for his position as Don Shula made him the Dolphins full-time Director of Security. Stu served 34 years in his post before retiring prior to this season, and during that time, protected the interests of Shula, Dan Marino, Jimmy Johnson and every other player and coach who donned the aqua and orange. You don’t spend nearly four decades handling security for an NFL franchise without some stories to tell, and Stu brings them in droves as he dives into The Tank. From Shula’s postgame meeting with Don Johnson to an epic Dan Marino-Michael Bolton celebrity softball game, and even a parking lot scuffle with Alex Rodriguez, Stu does not disappoint.

    September 17, 2018

    Mark Dixon took the long road to the NFL after an All-American career at Virginia was derailed by injuries.

Dixon instantly became a stalwart on the Dolphins’ offensive line, starting 60 of the 62 games he played in from 1998 – 2003. Mark dives into The Tank with OJ and Seth for his first Dolphins related interview in more than a decade and makes up for lost time. Fish Tank listeners have heard Dixon’s name in nearly every episode, but now the man himself discusses his constant fear of getting cut from the team, lessons learned from playing beside perennial All-Pro Richmond Webb, and battles against Hall of Fame defensive tackles like John Randle and Warren Sapp. Dixon’s off the field memories, however, are what listeners have been waiting to hear and he does not disappoint, giving his side of the road trips to Gainesville with Zach Thomas and Seth, and of course, he dominance on OJ’s basketball court.

Jackson played just two college seasons, helping lead the Tigers to an 11-0 record in 1993 before leaving Auburn to pursue his NFL career. He landed with his hometown team and became a fixture in the Miami Dolphins secondary from 1994 to 1999. In The Tank, Calvin shares why he left Auburn following his sophomore year, gives a very candid but unexpected explanation as to how he signed with the Dolphins, recalls a wild “DB Night Out” that lead to former safety Corey Harris revealing more than anyone expected, and challenges Trick Daddy to a cook-off!

    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    You’ve heard him in the background of nearly every one of our episodes, but DJ Prec isn’t just the producer of The Fish Tank. The artist formerly known as Sean Todd was a member of the Miami Dolphins Football Operations staff from 1995 to 2000, working for the likes of Don Shula, Jimmy Johnson and Dave Wannstedt. In the Tank, Prec steps from behind the board to behind the mic, providing insight on what it takes to help a professional football team operate. From endless food at team meals, to missed buses, to regrettably saying no to Wayne Huizenga, Prec has seen it all.

    Troy Drayton: I’m Very Comfortable in the Nude
    May 27, 2019
    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    Troy Drayton enjoyed a standout career at Penn State University from 1989-1992, teaming with our very own OJ McDuffie. A second round selection of the Los Angeles Rams in the 1993 NFL draft, Drayton played three seasons and three games for the Rams before Jimmy Johnson traded for the tight end in 1996. Troy would go on to play in Miami through the 1999 season and upon his retirement following a one-year stint in Kansas City, returned to South Florida where he became a staple in the community, and currently serves as the Dolphins Youth Programs Manager. Diving in The Tank, Troy recants his humble beginnings at Steelton (PA) High School as well as the factors that drove him to succeed at Penn State, on the field and especially in the classroom. Troy also discusses how Tim Bowens and Dan Marino made him realize the Dolphins were the city for him, his insane prowess in the weight room, the one time he was pushed to the point of going after a coach on the sidelines, his feelings about chicken salad, and his very unique approach to being interviewed in the locker room.

    Have got them all saved to my phone on Spotify, so I can listen to them whenever I want to - hasn't been a bad episode & have been looking forward to the new season, so to have a near 2 hour special with number 99 is brilliant, can't wait. The Channing Crowder episodes are hilarious

    Jason Taylor: Change The Narrative
    August 5, 2019
    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep


    Once considered an undersized project from Akron University, Jason Taylor went on to become the most storied defender in Miami Dolphins history and as dynamic of a defensive playmaker that the National Football League had ever seen. As a pass rusher, Taylor shattered the Dolphins sack record and finished his career ranked sixth (now seventh) all-time in league annals with 139.5 quarterback takedowns. A six-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time first-team All Pro, Taylor was named the 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and 2007 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. In 2017, his first year of eligibility, he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In The Tank, JT discusses overcoming early questions about his size and toughness, questioning his own ability in his first Jimmy Johnson training camp, and the value of having learned under Nick Saban. He also vividly recalls a brawl with former Fins guard, John Bock, an ill-advised motorcycle ride with defensive tackle Daryl Gardener, his unique relationships with Cam Cameron and Bill Parcells, and the time Michael Jordan visited him during a post-practice meeting. OJ and Seth couldn’t let JT go without addressing his reputation at Juice’s weekly basketball games.

    Some are better than others, but I've enjoyed every one, with the exception of the hip-hop guy, where I lost interest after about 5 minutes.

    Training Camp Special: Who Wants A One-on-One?
    August 12, 2019
    For the first time in history, current players from the Miami Dolphins roster dive in The Tank! After OJ and Seth recant some of their favorite training camp memories, they are joined by four different active Dolphins players. Pro Bowl long snapper, John Denney, is first to the mic and tries to clear up some stories Jason Taylor shared in the previous episode. Denney is followed by another specialist as punter Matt Haack reveals his less than traditional path to the Dolphins locker room. South Florida native and former Miami Hurricanes great, Allen Hurns makes sure OJ gets his receiver fix while linebacker Jerome Baker shares the pros and cons of missing the rookie dinner.

    August 20, 2019
    Jeff Darlington is an Emmy-nominated national television reporter with ESPN, best known for his work on NFL Countdown and SportsCenter.
