Jevon Holland gives insight into Dolphins' defensive play-calling plans




 

Despite head coach Brian Flores' firing this offseason, defensive coordinator Josh Boyer was kept on in his role under new Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel.

Beyond that, Miami made a concerted effort to keep most of their defense together from 2021, allowing them to continue building upon what they did during the second half of the season.

On Thursday, second-year safety Jevon Holland gave an inside look at how the Dolphins' play-calling may go in 2022, as he was asked which players were calling the defense.

"We're switching it up between me and 'Bake' (Jerome Baker)," Holland said. "It's not really set in stone right now. There's more than one green dot, so we're just going throughout trying different people."

Baker has worn the dot in the past, with Sam Eguavoen taking it when the former Ohio State Buckeye is unable to go. However, many NFL teams prefer to have their safeties making the communications, as they typically have more of the field to view.

Holland's rise in Miami's defensive system has been extremely impressive. To see him take on the starting role just a few weeks after debuting in the league, and now, potentially taking on play-calling duties, the sky is the limit for the Dolphins' 2021 second-round selection.
