The Miami Dolphins were the second youngest team in the NFL last season, and there won't be any kind of dramatic age jump in 2013.Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has nine picks to work with in the draft -- including five in the first 82 and the 12th overall selection. "... we’re looking forward to hitting on those,” Ireland said this week, via MiamiDolphins.com. “We’ll have another young team next year and that was all by design.”With running back Reggie Bush and left tackle Jake Long possibly gone, the Dolphins will get even younger at those two key positions. That can be tied to last year's draft, too.Miami has high hopes for tailback Lamar Miller, who showed flashes in his rookie season. The Dolphins also had rookie tackle Jonathan Martin start all 16 games, including a handful at left tackle in place of the injured Long.“I think Lamar really showed some great signs of really some explosive play opportunity,” Ireland said. “He kind of shoots out of a cannon whe...

Dolphins want Ryan Tannehill to improve his accuracy this offseason

ProFootballTalk: I’d be surprised if Mike Wallace isn’t a Miami Dolphin

The Miami Dolphins need to have a big offseason and it all officially starts on March 12th.  We say officially because the Dolphins cannot sign players from other teams until 4pm on March 12th.  However, the Dolphins can begin talking to players from other teams on March 9th.  So, I would expect a lot of news from March 9th-March 11th that sounds like this: “Player XXX has agree...

Dolphins Possibly Trading DE Jared Odrick?

Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald suggests that the Dolphins should consider placing DE Jared Odrick on the trading block this offseason. Odrick, the team’s first-round pick in 2010, was drafted for the team’s previous 3-4 defense system, but since then they’ve changed to a 4-3 base defense. At 300 plus pounds, he’s hardly an ideal fit to 4-3 defensive end. Pro Football...

Sean Smith, Dolphins 'far apart' on new contract

Ben Volin of The Palm Beach Post reports that the Miami Dolphins and 5th year cornerback Sean Smith are "far apart" on a new contract. He's asking for a big payday similar to the six-year, $43 million contract Jason McCourty signed with the Tennessee Titans last summer, according to a source, and the Dolphins are aren't about to grant him his wish.

Report: Dolphins’ Sean Smith looking for $8-$10 million per year

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith is looking for between $8-$10 million per year for his next contract. The Dolphins don’t see that. And much as I like Smith and respect Canter, I don’t see it either. The performance simply does not rise to that level. And frankly, I’m not sure it rises to half that level, either. Even though...

Report: Dolphins still haven’t made Reggie Bush an offer

According to the Miami Herald, even though running back Reggie Bush would love to re-sign with the Dolphins, they still haven’t made him an offer. As much as Bush may want to re-sign we already know the Dolphins are ready to move on with Lamar Miller as their lead back in 2013.  It wouldn’t shock me if they never make him an offer.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {...

Mike Florio believes Mike Wallace will be a Miami Dolphin

    PFT’S Mike Florio was on the Joe Rose show this morning and said “He will be surprised if Mike Wallace isn’t a Miami Dolphin".

Mike Wallace obviously brings the much needed speed...

Miami Dolphins Mount Rushmore: Four Franchise Icons

Less than a week after the conclusion of Super Bowl XLVII, the offseason has taken full swing. We're all going to miss football for the next five months, but there's plenty left to discuss, talk and debate. Every NFL franchise has iconic players, coaches, and owners. However, if you had to chose exactly four to be put on a "Mt. Rushmore" for each franchise, who...

According Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins haven’t extended RB Reggie Bush a contract offer yet. Jackson adds that Bush would “love to stay with the Dolphins,” but the team is apparently focused on other issues right now. Bush, 27, figures to test the open market next month, as previous reports have indicated that the Dolphins may only have interest at their...

Dolphins To Allow CB Sean Smith To Depart During Free Agency?

Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald writes that Dolphins CB Sean Smith is expected to be targeting a similar contract to the one the Cowboys handed out to Brandon Carr (five years, $50 million) last season. Salguero adds that Smith inconsistencies make him far from a sure thing and paying him an annually salary of $8 to 10 million is huge gamble to take for any team looking...

Miami Dolphins taking no action on RB Reggie Bush

The Miami Herald is reporting that the Miami Dolphins have yet to make an offer to impending free agent RB Reggie Bush. It was widely believed that the team would make some sort of offer to Bush but so far, the club has remained silent. Despite claiming that he wanted to lead the NFL in rushing during the 2012 season, Bush fell short of even reaching the 1,000-yard mark. It remains...
