One of the biggest storylines last season was the players of the Miami Dolphins losing confidence with what Brian Flores was doing. However, it seems like not all players share the same sentiments: the team's newcomers are hopeful that they will have a great season with Flores at the helm of the ship.

According to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe, a good number of the players who signed with the team are actually looking forward to playing for Flores. This is a completely different tune compared to the general atmosphere the team had after the New England Patriots dismantled the Dolphins during Week 2 of the 2019 season.

“My number one reason is Coach Flores. He just made me feel so comfortable with coming down,” said linebacker Elandon Roberts, who spent the past four seasons in New England, including three with Flores, before signing a one-year deal with Miami last month. “Just knowing how good of a leader he is on and off the field, how much he cares about you as a player. … I'm 100% bought in. I can't wait to get down there, and I love that I'm a Miami Dolphin.”

Center Ted Karras chose Miami (agreeing to a one-year deal) after turning down a two-year offer to return to the Patriots.

“I really believe in what Coach Flores is building and doing here, and I kind of wanted to get in and help him build it,” Karras said.

It's not hard to see why these players are eager to play for Flores. After a shaky start, their performances eventually stabilized. They became more cohesive as a unit and started winning football games. The biggest highlight of their season was their incredible upset of the Patriots at the final day of the season.

There's still a bit of a way to go before the Dolphins become legitimate contenders, but things should be looking up if more players are buying into Flores' system. And if they get the quarterback they want, they should be well on their way to making a run for the Super Bowl.
