Vince Bigel is grateful to be back on the active Dolphins roster, ready to contribute

Vince Bigel took a detour to return to the active Miami Dolphins this week ahead of the team’s home game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Having already missed the entire 2020 season with a torn Achilles, the outside midfielder, who made a significant contribution in 2019, was injured with a calf sprain at training camp this year. In early September, he was released due to injury, which allowed him to join another team.

Bigel found himself returning to the Dolphins training team in October after getting promoted in two different games, and along with fellow midfielder Brennan Scarlett placed in an injured reserve following Sunday’s win at the New York Jets, Bigel was a natural replacement signed forever and ever. composition of 53 people.

“I think playing football is a journey, and sometimes the gift is a struggle,” Bigel said Wednesday. “It was a real journey this year, and I would not want it to be any different. I’m just grateful to come back with such a great organization as the Dolphins and to help this team come out and win the ball games. “

Bigel was originally placed on the injury reserve in August, which would have ended his season before he started if he had stayed in IR with the Dolphins, but a pre-season injury compensation release allowed him to return as soon as he was ready. … The only problem was that he could sign a contract with another team.

Bigel attracted interest from other teams, but he always had the idea to return to Dolphins. When he returned and found all the same equipment in his locker as he had left it, he was convinced that the team had never actually removed it.

“I have a great relationship with [coach Brian Flores] and a great relationship with this team – to be honest, it’s not just talk, ”said Bigel. “I really wanted to come back here and I really like this team. My family loves it here in Miami.

“I’m just happy to come back, get over my injuries and finally be able to go out and play football again and be able to help this team win and be able to play with guys like [Andrew] Van Ginkel, Jelen Phillips and the opportunity to show energy in defense, in special teams and as a team. “

Bigel feels like he’s now fully recovered from a pre-season calf injury and a 2020 Achilles tendon rupture.

“Both are 100 percent healthy,” he said. “I’ve been running here for the past six weeks and bringing weight to the special teams, adding weight to the scout team’s defense.”

Bigel started 10 of 15 games for Miami in 2019 after he was acquired from the New Orleans Saints in exchange for former midfielder Kiko Alonso. He has 59 tackles, 2 1/2 sacks, 13 quarterback hits and one interception this year, for the first time Flores has led the Dolphins.

“It’s the same system, right?” Bigel said. “This is not much different from what it was in 2019, so there are many parallels, a lot in common. This is still the defense of the Miami Dolphins. “

The Dolphins used a maximum of two occasions where a training squad player could be promoted to a day squad without signing to 53 between October 31st at the Buffalo Bills and the following Sunday against the Houston Texans. He did not play for Buffalo and saw three special teams play against the Texans.
