Will the Miami Dolphins run game be improved in 2014?

Part of the Miami Dolphins’ strategy during the 2014 NFL Offseason was to drastically improved their running game, an improvement that will benefit the Dolphins greatly in all other aspects of the game. The Dolphins did this by adding running back Knowshown Moreno, who will compete with (and more than likely beat out) incumbent starter Lamar Miller, while fortifying their offensive...

Miami Dolphins: Tackle Still Seems to be Logical Draft Solution

Look for Shelly Smith, Jason Fox and Branden Albert to have some company on the offensive line in 2014.While team general manager Dennis Hickey has spent the majority of his first few months on the job singing free agents from the team to new contracts and signing players away from other organizations, it will be a true test of his ability when the 2014 NFL Draft begins in less than a...

Jason Fox agrees to one-year deal with Dolphins

If Jason Fox could stay healthy, he might still be a Detroit Lion. But he couldn't do that. Fox was injured throughout his four years with the Lions, a big factor in why the team didn't re-sign him when he became an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Fox, 25, ended up agreeing to a one-year deal Wednesday with the Miami Dolphins. A fourth-round draft pick by Detroit...

Top 10 tackles in the draft should the Detroit Lions choose to waste their first pick

There has been some speculation that the Detroit Lions would take an offensive tackle with their 10th overall pick in the upcoming draft. I would personally consider this to be a total waste. The Lions offensive line was ranked in the top third of the league, and it is a young line with potential to improve at the tackle position as they mature. With Reily Reiff and LaAdrian Waddle...
