Found April 22, 2014 on Sports Injury Alert:
Tight end Dustin Keller never got a chance to be called a Miami Dolphins player. Spending his entire six-year career with the New York Jets, he was signed by Miami last free agency period to a one-year contract. Yet before the 2013 NFL season even got underway, Keller had his knee obliterated in a preseason game last summer, tearing his ACL, MCL, PCL, and dislocating his patella tendon. The Dolphins placed him on their injured reserve list and he never returned to the field. Miami released him shortly after last season ended.But he's back.  According to Jordan Raanan of The Star-Ledger, Keller’s agent, Eugene Parker, says Keller is “ready to go” right now.  Welcome to the new age of medicine and surgery, where a 29 year-old tight end can completely heal a blown-out knee in less than a year.Drafted in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, Keller had a solid, healthy career until 2012.  He missed half of the 2012 NFL season with a variety of hamstring and ank...

Lamar Miller: One step back, one leap forward

Lamar Miller started 15 games for the Dolphins in 2014 and in his second NFL season he led the club in rushing with 709 yards on 4 yards a carry.

Miller could have been way better or, at least good enough to get Thomas...

Mock Draft 2.0 – Dolphins make a bold move at 19

Mock draft number one came and went and now it’s time for round 2 ! After taking CJ Mosley with the 19th pick overall in the 1st go around, we decided to make a bold decision and trade out of the first round. A trade was made with the Texans and now the Dolphins receive picks No. 33 and No. 65. This trade makes a lot of sense for the Fins who get the 33nd pick with lots of talent...

5 Takeaways from the Dolphins 2014 Schedule

1: Opening at home. The Dolphins haven’t opened a season at home since 2011, ironically it is the same team that they played in 11, the Patriots. It would be great to start the season with a win against  the division rival. The Dolphins were able to split the season series with the Pats in 2013 and nothing would be better for the Fins’ ego than a win over Brady and the Pats...

What to look out for during the Dolphins OTA’s

The Miami Dolphins kicked off their offseason training program Monday, and there are some overarching storylines that I will be looking at closely.

The first major storyline I want to look at is which players have...
