Dolphins motivated, prepared to take on Jets

Jared Odrick’s childhood bedroom in Lebanon, Pa.

On what he did on his time off during the bye week: “During the bye, the day we got off, after meetings, I flew up to Toronto and hung out with some friends up there that I wasn’t able to see for a while. For the weekend, Friday through Sunday, I hung out back home in gold ole Lebanon, Pa. I saw some family and some friends.”

On if it’s good to get away during the season: “It’s definitely helpful. I get a message once or twice a week every week and my message therapist didn’t know that we had a bye and, when I came back, she had told me without me telling her how much different my body felt. She realized how much I wasn’t beat up and that’s when she asked, ‘Did you guys play this week?’ I said, ‘No.’ She said, ‘I could tell.’ So it’s definitely helpful for your body.”

On if it’s easier to come back off a bye when you’re facing a divisional opponent like the Jets this week: “Regardless of who we’re playing, you come back motivated and prepared because we’re in a position to do some damage. That’s the main motivator.”

On how important the Jets game is this week: “It’s a very important game and it’s obviously a division game. It’s a game that we plan on going up there and playing some hard-nosed football.”
