Dolphins’ rookie Mo Kamara showed some nervous energy on his first day

MIAMI GARDENS — Mo Kamara was participating in his first Miami Dolphins walk-through at a rookie camp in May, and, well, he was a bit too wound up.

“I’m fired up,” Kamara said Friday before a Dolphins rookie camp rehearsal. “Coach had to inform me to calm down.”

That was outside linebackers coach Ryan Crow.

But, look, here’s the thing: Kamara remains to be not blissful that he was a fifth-round pick.

Did anyone notice he had 13 sacks for Colorado State last season?

And so Kamara, who’s 6-foot-1, 248 kilos, is on a mission.

Dolphins’ Mo Kamara: I actually have to make this team

“My brother called me last night,” Kamara said. “He said, you recognize, ‘You made it to the locker room.’ In order that’s all it means. It just means I just made it to the locker room. Nothing else. I still gotta’ prove myself.”

Let’s just say Kamara hasn’t bought a condo on the beach.

And no, he hasn’t written down his sack goal for 2024 yet.

“I still gotta’ make the team,” Kamara said.

That’s the appropriate mindset.

Curtis Weaver is a pleasant cautionary tale for Fins

Just a number of years ago, the Dolphins drafted one other Mountain West conference edge rusher, Curtis Weaver, within the fifth round. And he didn’t make the team.

Weaver has played one NFL game. For the Browns.

Kamara, a Recent Jersey native, is a bundle of energy.

Asked if he’s a fan of the Mets, Jets, Giants, Knicks, or Rangers, Kamara paused.

Then, smartly, Kamara said: “The sports team that I like? Miami Dolphins.”
