The Miami Dolphins were very active this offseason with the signings of Mike Wallace, Philip Wheeler, Dannell Ellerbee and Brent Grimes among others. Another popular topic of conversation has been how quarterback Ryan Tannehill will improve from a rookie season in which he led Miami to a 7-9 record.

The Miami Dolphins rookie defensive end Dion Jordan participated in drills for the first time in several weeks after tweaking his surgically repaired shoulder on Aug. 9th. Jordan will miss Thursday’s preseason finale against the Saints, but appears to be working his way back for the regular-season opener. After practice Jordan talked about how he is feeling:
Drew Brees wore a uniform - and even eye black - but never played. Ryan Tannehill also watched from the sideline, laughing at the Kiss Cam when it showed during a timeout on the scoreboard video screen.

After four preseason games, this is old hat for the Miami Dolphins.

Another training camp practice had just ended, and Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill walked toward a lectern to field the latest round of media queries.
