Welcome to 2017 and the heart of signing season for NFL agents hoping to represent the best of the best entering the 2017 NFL Draft. Speaking of the NFL, this is a very important season for those of us who grew up in South Florida (there are not many of us). The Miami Dolphins have made the playoffs for the first time in almost a decade. It certainly overshadows the Miami Heat being one of the worst teams in the NBA. Don’t even try to contact me on Sunday, because my eyes will be glued to the TV watching a game against the Steelers that no one believes the Dolphins have a chance of winning. Quick thanks to Daily Fantasy Sports for showing us love this week.
