Not all NFL players have the same paths. Some are top picks who get playing time right away, while others have to grind to see the field. Isaiah Ford would be a part of the latter.

Since being drafted in the seventh round in 2017, the wideout has been part of a transaction around 20 times including moves back and forth from the practice squad.

Through all that, Ford is still a depth piece for the Dolphins who got the opportunity to catch his first NFL touchdown earlier this season.

During his media availability on Monday, Ford was asked if he felt like he had nine lives with Miami.

“Yeah, I’ve heard that a few times,” Ford said while laughing. “I’ve also heard the ex-girlfriend that keeps coming back. I’ve heard that too. I think it’s a testament to the way that I’ve carried myself and the way that I work when I’m on the field and in the classroom.”

It’s awesome to see an NFL player getting these opportunities after working so hard over many years. While he’ll likely never be a top receiver for Miami, he can certainly fill a role and help the team get back on track.
