Beck's minicamp a bit sticky

Humid days make it tough to handle ball

DAVIE Dolphins rookie quarterback John Beck admitted Sunday that he had an uneven performance after completing his first three-day NFL minicamp.

Beck said one of his biggest adjustments was getting acclimated to South Florida's humid weather after playing at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.


"My first couple snaps on the first day were a little off because my hands were kind of sticking to the ball, but I've got it now," said Beck, a second-round draft pick who is considered a future starter. "Day by day it's getting better ... I feel like each day I've been able to progress."

Beck received extra snaps at the minicamp because Daunte Culpepper (knee) was sidelined and the Dolphins remain unable to complete a trade for Kansas City quarterback Trent Green. Beck let the 25-second clock expire twice during Friday morning's session and struggled Saturday afternoon, fumbling a snap and having a pass batted down at the line of scrimmage. Beck participated in select passing drills during Sunday's practice because the Dolphins focused on special teams.

"I'm trying to progress as fast as I can, but one thing I'm not going to do is get frustrated," said Beck, the second-leading passer in BYU history. "It's kind of like being a freshman all over again. You have to learn everything from the bottom. That's how I'm taking it."

They've got two things at BYU. Mormons and pedophiles. And I don't see Beck's two wives.
