The Miami Dolphins are headed into OTAs with no stand out wide receivers after trading Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears. Regardless of which quarterback starts the 2012 NFL season between Matt Moore, David Garrard or Ryan Tannehill, they have no clear cut No. 1 options at their disposal. That is why Miami should change their tune on free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress and at least invite him into camp for a work out. Davone Bess is a decent possession receiver. Brian Hartline has been making strides at the position as well. But after that, all the team has to fight for balls is a list including Legedu Naanee, Clyde Gates and a few rookies they drafted last month. No offense, but none of them exactly scream Pro-Bowl. And while I mean no offense toward the Dolphins, I expect their offense to be quite offensive in 2012. That is why bringing in Burress to at least see what type of skills and attitude he can offer is certainly worth a look. But once again, the Dolphins prove th...

Latest news and highlights from Dolphins OTA practices

The Miami Dolphins held their first Organized Training Activity on Tuesday.  This OTA was ‘voluntary’ and brought both rookies and veterans together.  We say ‘voluntary’ because while they are technically voluntary, it’s frowned upon if players miss them.  The Dolphins had excellent attendance, with every eligible player participating on Tuesday.  A few players (Massam and [...]

Dolphins positional battles take shape as OTAs continue

The Miami Dolphins continued their 3-day Organized Training Activities on Wednesday.  The media was not allowed in on this practice (nor will they be let into Thursday’s).  However, when they were there on Tuesday, we found out some interesting (albeit very early) information about what the Dolphins will look like when camp begins in July. [...]

Philbin: Dolphins new QB should emerge by week 3 of preseason

The Miami Dolphins are expecting an exciting quarterback competition this summer.  Matt Moore did a solid job in Miami last year, going 6-6, but helped the Dolphins finish the season winning 6 of their final 9 games…..David Garrard, who missed the 2011 season because of an injury, has experience in the west coast offense and [...]

Don't look for the Dolphins to sign a big name WR

The Dolphins receiving might be one of most lackluster grouping of average receivers in the league but Joe Philbin and Jeff Ireland seem to believe otherwise.  While it’s hard to argue that the Phins receiving core is any better than the leagues 25th best, it doesn’t appear likely that they will be adding another free agent receiver. NFL.com recently put out an article saying...

Jared Odrick to play defensive end for Dolphins

The Dolphins will be using a 4-3 defense in 2012, rather than their old 3-4, under new Head Coach Joe Philbin. Jared Odrick was a 1st round pick in 2010, coming to the NFL as a defensive tackle from Penn State. In Miami’s 3-4, they played Odrick at defensive end, something college defensive tackles often do. Odrick was a prototypical fit for the position, the so called 5-technique...

Plaxico Burress wants a workout in Miami; Dolphins not interested

One of the few remaining notable free agent wide receivers is Plaxico Burress. He's traveled a long, difficult road since catching the Super Bowl game winning pass from Eli Manning that destroyed the Patriots' undefeated record back in February, 2008. It doesn't seem to be getting any easier for Burress. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Harrold, Plaxico Burress...

Dolphins will likely start Matt Moore as long as he wins

Getty Images According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Miami Dolphins will handle their quarterback situation the way the Tennessee Titans did last season with Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker. As long as Moore wins, he’ll be the starter. “They’ll continue to play Matt Moore as long as he’s producing & winning,” said Schefter per Evan Silva. Moore had the Dolphins...

Miami Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross Pegs Matt Moore As Starting QB in 2012

If the owner of the Miami Dolphins has any say or thought on the matter, then the starting quarterback to begin the 2012 NFL season will be the incumbent, Matt Moore, and not the team’s No. 1 NFL Draft pick, Ryan Tannehill. And to you, David Garrard, you could have probably stayed at home for another season, unless you feel comfortable wearing a baseball hat and carrying a clipboard...

Miami Dolphins Fantasy Football Outlook

It’s never too early to talk fantasy football. While hopefully I can begin to cure my fantasy football addiction shortly by starting to form and research on player rankings, for now its time to take an early look at some Dolphins players that might have some fantasy implication. The Dolphins aren’t really considered one of the major contributors to the fantasy world, the might...

Ryan Tannehill running with the back ups

Getty Images According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, both Matt Moore and David Garrard took the first team snaps at practice on Tuesday, while rookie Ryan Tannehill rolled with the back ups. By having Tannehill go with the back ups, it enables him to get used the speed of the NFL game. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin did tell Salguero that a three-way quarterback battle...
