Brady Quinn might not make the Dolphins final roster

  By Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter) The Miami Dolphins made a surprising move at the quarterback position yesterday, signing Brady Quinn to a contract.  Not to worry, Ryan Tannehill is still firmly entrenched as the starter.  And most likely, Matt Moore will still serve as his backup for the 2014 season.  The surprising part is that Pat Devlin is gone and Brady Quinn is in.

Dolphins need someone to take Center stage….

  Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter) Stop me if you’ve heard this one: The Miami Dolphins are concerned about their offensive line.  Yes, the Dolphins are only 6 days into training camp. BUT, there are problems that keep surfacing, mostly around the center position. The problem is that Mike Pouncey, the Dolphins Pro Bowl Center, is probably going to miss the first 6 games or so of...

What will the Dolphins week one starting O line look like ?

The Dolphins are on pace to have five new starters on the offensive line, especially with Mike Pouncey missing the first eight weeks of the season or so recovering from surgery. Last year the Dolphins line was historically bad, 59 sacks was the 10th most of all time. Even with five new starters, the new line should easily be able to be at least a mediocre line. With Joe Philbin finally...

Heading into training camp, it looks like one of the biggest position battles is going to be an unexpected one – the one that is going to take place at the guard position.
