I started to believe that all the baggage the Dolphins have carried over this past decade will disappear in 2014. I started to suppose...

Why the Dolphins should extend Charles Clay

Charles Clay began training camp in 2013 as a fullback/tight end hybrid who was set to backup Dustin Keller and see situational snaps. Charles Clay ended the season as one of the NFL’s top 100 players and for good reason.

Can Ryan Tannehill succeed with a new offensive coordinator?

Shortly after the 2013 season ended for the Miami Dolphins, head coach Joe Philbin fired offensive coordinator Mike Sherman.

Free agents signed after June 1 do not count against next year’s compensatory draft picks. Of course...
