We'll find out.Dustin Keller, who never played a regular season down for the Dolphins due to injury, isn't coming back, and Michael Egnew, a guy the team had high hopes for a couple years ago, hasn't materialized.But Miami didn't target...

Brandon Marshall calls getting traded to Bears a ‘career-saving’ move

Brandon Marshall came cheap. The Bears just needed to part ways with two third-round picks to acquire the receiver from the Miami Dolphins two years ago. The Dolphins turned those picks into tight end Michael Egnew, receiver BJ Cunningham, tight end Dion Sims and cornerback Will Davis. Time will tell if giving up on Marshall was worth that haul. But from Marshall’s perspective...

Tight end Jermichael Finley is having another X-ray and MRI on his injured neck in the next two weeks as part of the process that he hopes will end with medical clearance to return to the NFL. He’ll be looking for a team to sign with if he should get that clearance and the Dolphins could find themselves in the mix. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the team has had...

Dolphins closing in on Knowshon Moreno? What about Blount?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The current market value for Denver’s Knowshon Moreno and New England’s LeGarrette Blount is at about $3 million per season, which to me says the Dolphins should double their pleasure. Photo Courtesy of Jeffery Beall via Wikipedia.org Knowshon Moreno is an every down back with good hands and an excellent pass protector.  He ran for a thousand...

Dolphins have some answers at TE, some questions

BY SEAN DONOVANThe Miami Dolphins spent a load of money shoring up their wide receiver corps last offseason but did little to address the tight end position, an increasingly important part of today's NFL passing offenses.They did sign former New York Jet Dustin Keller as a one-year stop-gap, but a preseason knee injury left Miami with just third-year H-back Charles Clay, second...

Another tight end? Further analysis of Miami’s projected 1st round pick

With the 2013 season concluding and the disappointing end to the season for the Dolphins, to say the least, the 2014 NFL draft is on all the fans’ minds. All signs point to Eric Ebron, the 6’4”, 245 pound tight end from the University of North Carolina, being the targeted as the 1st round selection for Coach Philibin and his staff. Ebron obviously showed his freakishly athletic...

Dolphins should go bargain hunting in Free Agency

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) Now that the Dolphins have a coaching staff and General Manager in place, we can start looking forward to free agency, which is about a month and a half away, and the draft, which will be almost two months later. The Miami Dolphins would be wise to fill most of their holes in free agency with second tier free agents, so that they are not drafting...

Some TALL receivers the Dolphins could draft in the late rounds

  By Julian (@Miami_Jules on Twitter) The 2014 Senior Bowl was played this weekend and during the week of practices that preceded the game, quite a few players stood out and climbed up in the rankings. Not all players entering the draft played in the Senior Bowl, some because of eligibility or injuries, and others just decided not to participate. The rankings will change yet again...

Dolphins could have new GM in place by Monday

  By Bill (@PhinNation on Twitter, PhinNation on Facebook) The Miami Dolphins have been navigating the last few weeks of the offseason without a General Manager steering the ship.  I’ll be honest here and tell you that a rudderless ship is still better than a ship that was sailing with the anchor (Jeff Ireland) in the water.  Even though they don’t have a General Manager in...

Latest news on Dolphins GM and Offensive Coordinator searches

It Was Charles Clay On 4th-and-5... But He Had Help

You don’t beat Tom Brady with pussyfoot, tight-to-the-vest football, and so Joe Philbin kept his offense out there late on fourth-and-five near midfield, and the Miami quarterback shot it out to his far right, to his power guy, to big Charlie Clay. It was Clay’s only catch of the day, and the tight end cut and dipped inside then powered out a first down that rescued Miami’s...
