We’ve talked a lot recently about who the Miami Dolphins should draft with the #8 pick.  We’ve told you about Ryan Tannehill and Brandon Weeden being possible targets as the Dolphins QB of the future.  But, the Dolphins draft won’t end after they pick a quarterback (wherever that might be).  Getting a QB of the [...]

Dolphins give ex-Viking Johnson a chance

In 2008, the Minnesota Vikings traded up in the second round to take Tyrell Johnson. Now, after four lackluster seasons, he is moving on.

The Miami Dolphins have had issues at the quarterback position ever since Dan Marino retired. Chad Pennington had a good year for them and Jay Fiedler wasn't terrible, however it stops there. Four long years ago the Dolphins passed on Matt Ryan to select left tackle Jake Long with the first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. They continued on to the second round where they...

2012 NFL Draft: Miami Dolphins Planning On Trading Up in Draft?

“With the eighth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select…” Seriously. Does anyone have a clue in the world what this team is going to do in the draft? It isn’t as if anything else they have talked about doing over the past couple of years has panned out for Miami.
