Found August 21, 2012 on DraftAce:

Miami Dolphins 4th-round draft pick Lamar Miller is fighting just to make the final 53-man roster. He’s currently listed as the 4th-string running back, behind Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas and Steve Slaton.

At this point, Miller’s best chance to make the active roster may be by winning the kick returner competition. He’s battling Marcus Thigpen, who joined the team from the CFL, for the job.

The QB competition is over in Miami, at least for now, as the team has come out and said that their first round rookie will be under center week one. 

Naming Ryan Tannehill the Starter is the Wrong Call for the Miami Dolphins

Despite having two quarterbacks on the roster who have NFL experience, Joe Philbin has made the decision to start rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill for week one in Houston. And I think it’s a horrible decision. I know a lot of the experts are saying that they’re behind the choice and that Miami is clearly not going anywhere this year, so let the kid play.

What We Got Out Of Hard Knocks: Miami Dolphins

  Due to the 2011 Lockout and the uncertainty of anything that was the NFL, HBO decided to cancel its Hard Knocks TV series last year. Adding to that factor was that no NFL team wanted to commit to doing the show.    Who better to follow a show that never was than the 2012 Miami Dolphins?  Full of promise and young talent, the Dolphins will ultimately rise through the...

Ryan Tannehill Named Dolphins Starter

Head coach Joe Philbin has named rookie Ryan Tannehill the Dolphins' starting quarterback for Week 1. Fantasy Spin: Tannehill has outperformed 2011 starter Matt Moore so far in camp and the preseason, and the Texas AM product gives the Dolphins the best chance to win. But keep fantasy expectations low, as Miami fields a weak receiving corps and Tannehill is still just a rookie.
