Dolphins’ Mike Pouncey won’t let subpoena bother him


As everyone has probably heard by now, Miami Dolphins’ offensive lineman Mike Pouncey was served with a grand jury subpoena by the Massachusetts State Police after the Dolphins’ 27-17 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday.

Pouncey and his twin brother, Maurkice, have been good friends with former New England Patriots’ tight end Aaron Hernandez since their days at Florida and police believe they can help with the case against Hernandez.

After practice Tuesday, Pouncey was in no mood to talk about his subpoena.

“I will answer any football-related questions,” Pouncey told reporters via James Walker of ESPN. “I can’t speak about anything legally.”

Pouncey clearly does not want to answer any questions related to the case and would rather focus on the Dolphins’ next task: getting back to .500 with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday night.

“Not at all,” Pouncey said when asked if his legal matters would be a distraction. “We’re focused on the Cincinnati Bengals right now. We understand that it’s a short week. We’re all professionals, so our main focus is on this football game.”

Pouncey’s Dolphins will host the Bengals Thursday night at 8:25 pm EST.
