The Dolphins need a new left guard, given the no-brainer decision not to bring back Richie Incognito. Enter third-rounder Billy Turner, who brings a fitting set of experiences to the spot previously occupied by one of the most notorious bullies in the NFL.

“I was the one getting bullied all the time by my older brother when I was growing up,” Turner said recently, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. “When I started playing football, I played up with older guys. I came in and played center right away, and everyone thought they were going to beat me up and bully me because I was younger. They thought I was going to be soft.

“But I just got out there and unleashed my anger. The anger I had built up from getting mad and [peeved] at my older brother was what came out in my play. That’s how I developed that strategy and that style of playing with a chip on my shoulder.”

He now plans to bully opponents, in a way that’s socially acceptable.

“When I put the helmet on and I snap it up, it’s like a switch getting turned on,” Turner said. “I’m [full throttle] every play. I’m not going to give up on anything. And from the moment that ‘h’ comes out on the ‘hut’ I’m going to be as aggressive as I possibly can with the play call, trying to beat that guy and trying to bruise him.”

Miami's success in 2014 will hinge on how well Turner and James play on the o-line.

“When I put the helmet on and I snap it up, it’s like a switch getting turned on,” Turner said.

Did anyone else die laughing when they read this line?
