This Given Sunday:
The Miami Dolphins have been a trendy pick this offseason, but no one sees them as a complete roster. There are holes that can be patched between now and the start of the regular season, and a new hole was recently exposed in practice.
Second-year lineman Jonathan Martin was the weak link in practice, reportedly getting beat repeatedly and owned by pass rushers.
"It has been eye-popping to see the extent of the domination because we're not talking about a sack some days but not others," wrote Armando Salquero of the Miami Herald. "We're talking sack followed by sack followed by other sacks."
Coach Joe Philbin had a more positive take on the issue.
"You guys were here," coach Joe Philbin told reporters. "O.V. got [Martin] a couple of times -- once outside and once inside on a run-action pass. I think [Martin has] done a good job in drop-back. I think his sets have been good. The thing an offensive lineman consistently has to ...

Many experts and members of the media will tell you to disregard what goes on in the preseason, others will tell you that you need to pay attention to every player on each snap, that being said there is a fine line of things that should excite or concern fans when it comes to preseason football.
Things to be concerned about :
1) Jonathan Martin - Going into this season...

The Miami Dolphins have reached out to free agent quarterback Tyler Thigpen.
Thigpen, 29, has been out of work since the end of the 2012 season when he served as the backup in Buffalo. A few teams are known to have worked out Thigpen but none are known to have made an offer.

The Miami Dolphins have been practicing for 2 weeks, but by the looks of things on Sunday night, theyâre going to need a lot more practice. Â The Dolphins were sloppy from the beginning of the game when they fumbled on their first offensive play from scrimmage. Â The handoff from Ryan Tannehill to Lamar Miller appeared to be good, but Miller just missed it. Â Tannehill was âcreditedâ...
The Miami Dolphins kicked off the preseason with a sloppy effort in a 24-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Although many of the Dolphins starters either didn't suit up or only played a handful of series, the overall performance was disappointing. Their tackling and redzone offense were poor, and they lost the turnover battle. However, its best that the team plays at their worst...
Dolphins running back Lamar Miller ended up turning the football over on the first play of tonightâs Hall of Fame game against the Cowboys.
ESPNâs Adam Schefter then tweeted that some people within the Dolphins organization arenât sure about Miller yet.
Lamar Miller might go on to be a star running back. But sense about him with some in organization is still uncertainty.
Safety Reshad Jones appears ready to sign a long-term deal with the Miami Dolphins.
NFL.com and ProFootballTalk.com reported on Monday that Jones has agreed to a four-year extension that is worth 29.285 million (15 million guaranteed).
Jones, who is in the last year of his rookie contract, would now be among the league's top paid safeties. The deal would keep him with the Dolphins...
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Â Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace is one of a few veterans that likely wonât play in tomorrow nightâs Hall of Fame game. Â The other players are Randy Starks and Jared Odrick.
Jared Odrick (groin), Randy Starks (knee), and Mike Wallace (groin) are starters unlikely to play in HOF game. #Dolphins

It's probably no surprise, but the most important Miami Dolphin for the upcoming 2013 season will be second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Game managers like Craig Krenzel, Matt Mauck and Matt Flynn may be able to win national championships in college football, but to win the Super Bowl, having an elite quarterback is...
It may sound like a broken record, but donât expect to see too much at the Hall of Fame Game Sunday night.While there are still questions to be answered on the offensive line, with the receivers and the secondary, this is just an audition of sorts for NFL preseason.Donât expect starters and stars to play all that much.Donât worry, the Cowboys will be going through the same...
Victor Cruz is a good teammate, and extremely loyal.
Cruz who just cashed in on a $45 million deal thinks Hakeem Nicks is worth way more than that, and told USA Today, that Nicks should get the same deal that Mike Wallace got from the Dolphins, if not more.
âAbsolutely, Hakeem is worth Mike Wallace money,â Cruz told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday. âHeâs worth whatever his numbers...
DAVIE, Fla. -- Hall of Famer and NFL analyst James Lofton isn't sure Jonathan Martin can do the job at left tackle for the Miami Dolphins.
And Lofton, like Martin, is a Stanford graduate.
Hall of Famer Larry Little calls Martin one of the biggest question marks on the team.
And Little is a former offensive lineman for the Dolphins and a big fan of the team.
Even Miami coach...
