Former Dolphins’ top pick Laremy Tunsil minting NFT of infamous gas mask video

·1 min read

The Miami Dolphins were more than happy to select Laremy Tunsil with pick No. 13 in the 2016 NFL draft after a video posted on his Instagram account that depicted the offensive line prospect smoking with a gas mask on.

His agent claimed that his account was hacked, but that didn’t stop teams ahead of Miami to remove him from their draft board, affording the Dolphins the opportunity to grab a potential franchise-altering tackle.

Now, after six years and some Pro Bowl seasons, Tunsil is still being asked about the moment that cost him to drop in 2016. However, Tunsil took to Twitter on Wednesday to say that he’s ready to move on from the infamous video. He explains that he will be minting an NFT of it and giving a portion of the proceeds to charity.

Tunsil may not have been with the Dolphins for the long term, but they’re still seeing the effects of his trade almost four years later. Now, someone has a chance to own a piece of NFL history that will never be forgotten.
