Mike Pouncey recently signed a five-year, $52.15 million contract extension with his current NFL team, the Miami Dolphins, a move which sent shockwaves throughout the NFL for the message it sent teams that this franchise for one of the few times in recent history actually realized how important a player of his ability is to the team.
 
 
The likelihood of the team signing him to a contract extension after his involvement in the Jonathan Martin bullying scandal was considered by some NFL General Managers to be unlikely and they were 'hoping' the Miami Dolphins would be foolish and cut ties with the talented offensive lineman and thus make it possible for them to sign him. 
 
The release of a young,talented player such as Mike Pouncey, who at times has acted immaturely, is an ill-advised move that the old management of the Miami Dolphins might have made but not their current management led by general manager, Dennis Hickey who likely saw how the player has matured and how his positive qualities outweighed his negative qualities. 
 
 
For any football player wondering if mistakes can be overcome all they have to do is look at Mike Pouncey who has shown that if one is willing to show they have changed the rewards can be great. 
 
In the 2014-15 season he showed a loyalty to this franchise that impressed football observers looked when he played out of position in 2014-15, filling in as a guard without complaint after injuries ravaged the team. There are many other players who would have balked at such a move for fear it would hurt their future contract negotiations but he did so without complaint and through this act and a show of improved maturity with regard to his interactions with teammates gained the respect and trust of his teammates and team management. 
 
His reward for his team-first actions: a 5 year contract extension that ensured he will likely finish his career as a Miam Dolphin player. 
 
The signing of Mike Pouncey to a contract extension sent a loud bullhorn bulletin to the rest of the NFL that the days of 'cherry picking' the best players from the Miami Dolphins was over and the new era is beginning for this team with this contract signing. 
 
There were tears of joy shed by Mike Pouncey during the press conference to announce the contract extension and he likely was not the only one celebrating this signing as others celebrating this move probably include NFL fantasy owners and fans of the Miami Dolphins because his signing this contract makes this team one whose playoff prospects have improved considerably for the 2015-16 season.
 
If the Miami Dolphins make the playoffs in 2015-16 fans will be able to look back to the contract signing of Mike Pouncey as a major reason for their success for the impact it has with the on field performance of the team and the morale in the locker room.
