Breaking down film with Dolphins assistant DB coach Blue Adams

A big part of preparing in the NFL is analyzing film, one of the few parts that tend to get hidden from the fan. On Monday evening, the Miami Dolphins opened up this aspect of preparations to the fan, by conducting a film session featuring their assistant defensive backs coach Blue Adams. Before I get to the session, here’s a quick biography on Adams, who’s entering his third...

Finnegan, Grimes ready to be Miami's dynamic duo

BY DAN BEGNOCHELast year, cornerback Brent Grimes signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins with the hope he could prove he was still an elite defender following a string of injuries.

Philbin says Dolphins read to play a game

The Miami Dolphins conducted the first 30 minutes of Monday's two-hour organized team activities under hazy, smoky conditions because of a nearby wildfire. "It felt a little weird at first," said Pro-Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes, who suffers from asthma, "but as it went on we got used to it." Coach Joe Philbin seemed pleased with the session. "I thought...

Have a day Mike Wallace!

On a day, when things were not looking to well early on for the Dolphins with dropped passes and missed blocks in 7 on 7 drills; Mike Wallace stole the show with a practice for the ages. On the first play from scrimmage, the Dolphins offense opened up with a crafty double reverse featuring the likes of Brian Hartine, back from being limited last week, with a handoff to Mike Wallace...

Is Mike Wallace primed for a big 2014?

Earlier this week during 11-on-11 drills, Miami Dolphins speedy receiver Mike Wallace got a step on Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes and streaked down the sidelines. Wallace began to pull ahead of Grimes as quarterback Ryan Tannehill unleashed a deep ball. But Tannehill's pass was overthrown by a couple yards. The sight was all too familiar for Dolphins fans. Tannehill and...

Will Jamar Taylor and Will Davis fit into the Dolphins future defensive plans?

Enter this off season’s Dolphins transactions with the re-signing of Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes and signing of free-agent Cortland Finnegan (AKA Andre Johnson’s rag doll); the Dolphins added strength to their secondary. Even adding rangy and tall Walt Aikens in the 2014 draft shows the Dolphins aren’t yet satisfied with the depth at the cornerback position. Not to mention...

Two Miami Dolphins make NFLN’s top 100

Each year after the draft, NFL Network makes a list of the best 100 players in the NFL. Last year Cam Wake was the only Dolphins player on the list, Wake came in at an extremely questionable 89 on the list. This year Brent Grimes came in 95th for the top players of 2013. Brent Grimes continues to get severely underrated by the competition.  Grimes was easily a top three corner in...

The strong case for re-signing Brent Grimes and Paul Soliai

In what has long been a question that has been placed on the virtual back burner, the Dolphins have to decide who over their 20 free agents to bring back.   It's highly possible that the position of cornerback  one year ago was the most crucial last season after the departure of Sean Smith in free agency and the pre-season trade sending Vontae Davis for picks.  However,...

Dolphins solidify secondary with Brent Grimes’ new deal

This morning, the Miami Dolphins took a step in solidifying their secondary with the re-signing of two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes.  As a result of the new deal, Grimes avoids the franchise tag that he probably wasn't going to get in the first place. Grimes posted excellent numbers in Kevin Coyle's defense and had four interceptions and an exciting 92 yard interception...

Miami Dolphins free agency plan

The Miami Dolphins got off to a good start to the offseason with the signing of cornerback Brent Grimes to a 4 year, $32 million deal. The structure of the contract also allows the Dolphins to cut ties with Grimes if his production diminishes after the second year, when he will be 33 years of age.  While locking up Grimes was an important first move, GM Dennis Hickey will be busy...

Miami Dolphins re-sign CB Brent Grimes

This year’s cornerback free agent class was hyped as one of the better in recent memory and there are valid arguments for that, but each of the top cornerbacks had their warts (except cap casualty Darrelle Revis). Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Vontae Davis all have been inconsistent in their careers, before putting together strong contract years (usually a red flag). Sam Shields...

Vince Wilfork to the Dolphins?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The only debate in a Vince Wilfork to Miami scenario is whether he has anything left in the tank. When the Dolphins traded up one spot in the 2004 draft to draft Vernon Carey and not Vince, I was livid, even more so after he ended up on the New England Patriots.

Dolphins finalizing 2 year deal with feisty CB Cortland Finnegan

Off season goal #1: Resign Brent Grimes (Check) Once the Dolphins were able to bring back Grimes the question became who would play opposite to him. With Nolan Carroll leaving for the Eagles, would Dennis Hickey go into next season with sophomore Jamar Taylor as a starter or would the team bring in a vet to help transition before turning to their young corners. Well it appears the...
