During the pregame show leading into Dolphins-Jets on Saturday night, Dungy said that in his experience, the NFL made it abundantly clear what’s permissible and what isn’t as far as how coaches and players may communicate during games.

Those are decent numbers for your average receiver, but an offense that was without Ezekiel Elliott for six weeks and never quite got the ground game going had an added reliance on Bryant. He didn’t deliver, catching just 69 of his 132 targets for a 52.3 catch percentage. His 838 yards receiving also finished outside of the league’s top 25 for the third straight year, but for the first time in 15 or more games played in a season since 2011.
