For Laremy Tunsil, the 2019 NFL season unfolded in a series of surprises.
Just days before the start of his fourth season as a Miami Dolphin, the starting left tackle was traded to the Houston Texans, who needed protection for starting quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Now, both Watson and Tunsil are in Orlando, among the best in the league as Pro Bowlers.
"Man, it's a great opportunity to be out here in Orlando," Tunsil said Wednesday. "I'm here with my quarterback D4. We're just having fun. It was a great day, a chill day. We didn't do much. I'm just enjoying it. I can't wait to see the fans, sign some autographs, take a couple of pictures."
Tunsil, selected to his first Pro Bowl after his 2019 campaign, is reunited several former Dolphins teammates who have also moved onto other teams such as quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry. Tannehill, who spent his first seven seasons with Miami before being traded to Tennessee last offseason, played three seasons with Tunsil and led the Titans to the AFC Championship Game last week. Tunsil chatted with them at Wednesday's AFC Pro Bowl practice which took place at the ESPN
"It was a long journey and I'm just glad to be in this position right now," Tunsil said. "I was talking to Jarvis and we were talking about our old days in Miami and how we had fun. We won some games, we lost some games but just to be here, it's a great opportunity."
The Texans offensive line, shored up by the addition of Tunsil and rookies Max Scharping and Tytus Howard, will have their first complete offseason to build on the chemistry that developed in their first year together with veterans Nick Martin and Zach Fulton.
"I for sure think we're going to improve," Tunsil said. "Just me being there with the whole offensive line. Me, Nick (Martin), Zach, Max and having Ty back, we're going to improve for sure."
The NFL 2020 Pro Bowl game takes place on Sunday at Camping World Stadium. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. CT and will air on ABC-13 and ESPN.
