Lehan loving the Fins

Michael Lehan is in sunny Miami, in his first season with the Dolphins.
But Lehan doesn't call Miami home.
"I don't get home very often during the season," Lehan said. It's football time. But I'm definitely a Minnesotan, through and through."
Lehan played football at Hopkins High then at the University of Minnesota. And during the offseason, he lives at his house in Edina, and he works out at the U.
"I get the updates from friends and family on what's going on in Minnesota," Lehan said.
After three seasons with the Cleveland Browns, Lehan signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins. He has played in every game except the last, but he almost exclusively plays on special teams, and he only has one tackle for the season.
Still, he has no regrets.
"It was a good choice, and I'm excited to be here," he said.
As for the Gophers, you won't get Lehan to be critical of his alma mater.
"I think coach Mason is doing a good job, with who he has available to him," Lehan said. "It's a big hit to lose (Gary) Russell and (Laurence) Maroney, and we've been a running football for as long as I remember. So to come in and be uncertain about the running game, I think he's done a good job."
