DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Two-time Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones reported Tuesday to the Miami Dolphins' mandatory mini-camp after skipping earlier voluntary offseason practices.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — This is not usually a needed reminder, but Alabama's defense is still quite good.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide has flipped its usual persona this season with a Tua Tagovailoa-led offense putting up video game-like numbers and the defense going fairly low-key.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins rookie safety Minkah Fitzpatrick wants to trademark his nickname but says he'd be happy to share it with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Both go by "FitzMagic," and the Bucs' QB has been making headlines while leading his team to a 2-0 start as a replacement for the suspended Jameis Winston.
That's not the reason Minkah Fitzpatrick recently filed for a federal trademark of the nickname, he said Wednesday.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins rookie and New Jersey native Minkah Fitzpatrick is ready for a rowdy reception returning to his home turf Sunday, when his team plays the New York Jets.
"I grew up in that environment, everybody loving the game up there," Fitzpatrick said Wednesday. "Going back up there, I know what I'm walking into. I know how crazy it's going to be."

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — All the offseason chatter about who will be throwing passes for Alabama — Jalen Hurts or Tua Tagovailoa — has overshadowed the pressing question of who's charged with defending them.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Two weeks into the Miami Dolphins' offseason practice regimen, first-round draft pick Minkah Fitzpatrick's running tally of interceptions is underway.
"Have I been counting them? Every DB counts them," Fitzpatrick said with a laugh after Tuesday's workout. "I've got two picks and a couple of pass breakups. Just doing my job."
Contact drills won't begin until training camp, but early indications are the Dolphins used the 11th overall pick wisely when they selected Fitzpatrick.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's secondary has a whole new look, with everyone from All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick to defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt having moved on.
The defending national champions must replace six key defensive backs, including every regular starter. Their potential successors have a collective three career starts.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's pro day featured some prominent figures in spectator roles, including NFL head coaches, highly rated prospects fresh from the combine and a former Southeastern Conference head coach expected to join the Crimson Tide staff as an analyst.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Minkah Fitzpatrick understands the value of his skill set.
At 6-foot-1, 201 pounds, he hits like a safety. His speed, hip movement and feet might make him more tailored to cornerback.
So the Alabama star is spending this weekend explaining to NFL scouts he can excel at either, both or some combination of the positions.
All the top 2018 football prospects at St. Peter's Prep in New Jersey took advantage of the new NCAA signing period and wrapped up their recruitments in December.
Still, St. Peter's coach Rich Hansen has been kept busy lately by college recruiters.
"Duke just left. Syracuse was in this morning. Northwestern's in tomorrow. Virginia," Hansen said recently.
Stanford running back Bryce Love won the Lombardi Award, given to the top Division I football player based on performance, leadership, character and resilience.
Love was a Heisman Trophy runner-up to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield last season, running for 162.9 yards per game and 8.04 per carry. He played the last month of the season through a nagging sprained ankle that forced him to miss one game.
The Lombardi was presented Saturday night at Lone Star College in Houston.
HOUSTON (AP) — Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma and fellow Heisman finalists Lamar Jackson of Louisville and Bryce Love of Stanford are among the finalists for the Lombardi Award. The award is given to the nation's top player based on performance as well as leadership, character and resiliency.
Every year Alabama sends a handful of underclassmen to the NFL. Every year the next wave of stars slips into place for the Crimson Tide and Nick Saban's team rolls along.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — National champion Alabama once again must replace a number of key players leaving early for the NFL draft, including All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama junior wide receiver Calvin Ridley is entering the NFL draft.
Ridley announced his decision in a Twitter post Wednesday, two days after the Crimson Tide won the second national championship of his three-year career.
Widely projected as a first-round pick, Ridley easily led the Tide in receiving. He had 63 catches for 967 yards while no other wide receiver caught more than 14 balls.
ATLANTA (AP) — Alabama's vaunted defense is about to face perhaps college football's best running back duo.
Those kinds of matchups tend to work out pretty well for the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide, which shuts down opposing ground games better than anybody.
ATLANTA (AP) — As Alabama All-America defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick watched a YouTube video of last week's thrilling Rose Bowl between Georgia and Oklahoma, there was a sense of familiarity with the Bulldogs.
"We basically run the same defense. They added a couple of things just like we add some things," Fitzpatrick said. "Even the hand signals and stuff are pretty similar. It's pretty interesting."
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Sure, Hunter Renfrow is smart and hard-working.
He's also an amazing athlete.
Without a doubt, Minkah Fitzpatrick has some enormous physical skills.
He's also a thoughtful student of the game.
The key Sugar Bowl matchup — Clemson's big-play receiver vs. Alabama's do-everything defensive back — is also an apt reminder of how racially tinged stereotypes diminish players of all shapes, sizes and colors.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama is embracing a different role going into these playoffs.
The fourth-ranked Crimson Tide players can't technically call themselves underdogs since they're actually slight favorites over No. 1 Clemson in the Sugar Bowl, but they know some view them as interlopers who don't belong in the playoffs this time. They had to sweat it out for more than a week before getting a postseason reprieve.
