“With the eighth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select…” Seriously. Does anyone have a clue in the world what this team is going to do in the draft? It isn’t as if anything else they have talked about doing over the past couple of years has panned out for Miami. If it did, then either Jim Harbaugh or Jeff Fisher would be coaching Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn. As Rick Pitino would  say, none of them are walking through that door anytime soon. Unless they enter as opponents of the Dolphins. Miami needs help at so many positions, they could really go in multiple directions at No. 8 in a few weeks. Teams have been enamored by Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill, even though he played more games at wide receiver for the Aggies than he did under center.

Dolphins sign Tyrell Johnson, plan visits with Groves and Guyton

The Miami Dolphins made an under-the-radar signing on Thursday, agreeing to terms with former Vikings safety, Tyrell Johnson.  Johnson was a 2nd round pick of the Vikings in 2008 and adds depth to the safety position.  It’s likely Johnson will come in and compete for either the starting strong or free safety spot with the [...]

Did the Miami Dolphins really “miss out” on head coach Jeff Fisher?

The Miami Dolphins have been under the microscope this offseason, getting tagged with the “dysfunctional” label by several pundits. As the dust has settled in the first phase of free agency this season, the questions need to be asked whether or not this is a team which is crazy like a fox, or simply, crazy? The possible moves by the Dolphins this offseason have been...
