Dolphins Safety Battle: Was There An Actual Competition?

The Miami Dolphins safety position battle isn't nearly as interesting as initially expected.

Apparently the starting safety positions for the Dolphins aren't that big of a mystery. They were expected to be among the most competitive positions at training camp and in the preseason, but the safety spot appear to be, well, secure.

As Kevin Nogle at The Phinsider tells us, Chris Clemons, Jimmy Wilson, and Tyrone Culver aren't all fighting for a spot a starting safety. Rather, Reshad Jones has secured one of the spots and Clemons is the guy for the other. Wilson is in the process of adjusting to the switch from cornerback in his rookie year, to safety in his sophomore campaign.

While these positions were supposed to be interesting and competitive, that's not the case here. Miami is set at safety, barring any kind of serious injuries.
