CelbNSports247.com has the latest on Miami Dolphins Rookie and DE Christian Wilkins who threw a punch at Bills’ lineman Cody Ford on the very first play from scrimmage.
Wilkins was nowhere near the ball.
Having previously drawn the ire of Dolphins coach Brian Flores for an unnecessary roughness penalty in Week 4 against the Chargers, Wilkins seems to be quickly earning a bad reputation.
Wilkins said, via the Miami Herald:
I was extremely selfish. This is the ultimate team sport. It’s not just about me. I don’t think I’ve ever been more disappointed in myself about something, especially something that was in my control.
Christian Wilkins penalized and ejected for throwing a punch on the second play of the game. This comes just two weeks after Wilkins was penalized for supplexing a ball carrier. Flores talked about how that wouldn’t happen again. pic.twitter.com/UGmuw8FR1P

Wilkins was the 13th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The rookie had nine tackles on the season.
Maybe the fact that Christian Wilkins suffered more losses as a pro than he did in four years at Clemson might have something to do with it?
