DAVIE, Fla. -- After Charles Clay recently scored a touchdown on his first career rushing attempt, Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin cracked, "I dont know if he will be compared to Jim Brown or anything."
Well, what about Kellen Winslow?
When the Dolphins lost starter Dustin Keller for the season in the third preseason game due to a knee injury, there obviously was concern at tight end. The free-agent signee, who had caught as many as 65 passes with the New York Jets in 2011, was regarded as possibly developing into quarterback Ryan Tannehill's favorite target.
As for his replacement, Clay had just 34 catches in his first two seasons combined, numbers Keller has been expected to put up in half a season. But hold on here.
Through three games, Clay has grabbed 14 passes for 203 yards. That puts him in pace for approximately 75 catches and 950 yards on the season, better numbers than Keller ever has had.
"No surprise," Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline s...

The Miami Dolphins are off to their best start in a decade. But, their good start is only good enough for a share of first place with the New England Patriots. While the Dolphins have had 2 tough games against 2012 playoff teams (Colts & Falcons), the Patriots have beaten up on the Jets, Bills, and Bucs. Now is when the true tests start coming for the Patriots. Now we’ll...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Miami Dolphins have signed DT Marvin Austin. Austin was one of several free agent defensive linemen to work out for the Dolphins last week. Austin, a second-round pick of the Giants in the 2011 draft and he then missed the entire 2011 season with a torn pectoral muscle. He played in eight games for the Giants last season.

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, the Miami Dolphins has extended general manager Jeff Ireland’s contract.
When Dolphins Jeff Ireland went on a spending spree in the offseason to secure high-profile free agents like receiver Mike Wallace and cornerback Brent Grimes it was thought (by me at least) that he was making one last-ditch effort to save his job.
Now that the team is 3-0 and playing well you could tell Ireland that for now at least his summer was a job well done.
Or you could...
Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Dolphins DE Cameron Wake is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with “a mild” MCL sprain.

The Dolphins still have something to prove this coming week against the Saints on Monday night.A suspect offensive line when it comes to run blocking, a big hole on the defensive line with the injury to Cameron Wake and the task of covering the speedy receivers of the Saints offense, plus a tight end that is out of this world makes it a huge game for Miami, who has jumped out of...
