According to the Miami Herald, free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress would “love” to play for the Dolphins. This is a statement that can probably be interpreted as Burress saying he would “love” to play for anyone. Burress has yet to go on a single visit and would probably welcome any opportunity he gets at this point. He’s in no position to be picky and the Dolphins would give him the best opportunity to not only play, but possibly start. While it wouldn’t completely surprise me if Burress was a Dolphin next season, given how much the Dolphins need to do something to generate more fan interest, I highly doubt they sign the soon to be 35 year old receiver. The Dolphins have one of the most inexperienced receiving corps in the league, but they’re also a rebuilding team and all Burress would do for them is take snaps away from the many young receivers they have. Earlier this week, GM Jeff Ireland talked up his unproven (at best) receiving corps so I expect he’ll want to give them e...

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 [...]

Miami Dolphins Should Change Tune and Work Out Plaxico Burress

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...

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...

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...

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...

Ross: Moore likely Week 1 starter for Dolphins

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross told NFL Network that he expects veteran incumbent Matt Moore to start at quarterback in the regular-season opener. That might come as an upset to some, considering Ross voiced his support for Ryan Tannehill to be drafted in the first round. "I don't think they're going to rush (Ryan Tannehill) into anything," Ross said. "He...

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...

Boom or Bust: Plaxico Burress

Plaxico Burress could be a one-and-done player with the New York Jets. Entering this offseason as a free agent, all indications are Burress will take his talents to South Beach or South Philly in 2012.
