Dolphins Cut RB Daniel Thomas & RB/KR Marcus Thigpen

  Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports that the Dolphins have cut pick RB Daniel Thomas and KR Marcus Thigpen. Thomas, 26, is a former second-round pick, who never lived up to his draft status and has been largely underwhelming in each of his first three years in the league. He was reportedly competing for a roster spot with Mike Gillislee, so it’s really not...

Dolphins top Rams 14-13 in preseason finale

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Marcus Thigpen showed why he might not make the Miami Dolphins. And then he showed why he might. After muffing a chance badly in the first half, Thigpen had a 32-yard punt return midway through the fourth quarter to set up Miami's go-ahead score, and the Dolphins beat the St. Louis Rams 14-13 on Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams....

Where do the Dolphins need to show improvement in tonight’s game?

The preseason is coming to a close as the Dolphins get ready to face the Rams. Usually the fourth preseason game is the coaching staff trying to figure out the last six or seven roster spots. The starting offense and defense will probably only play a drive or two so, meaning we wont get to see if the offense can improve after last weeks game against the Cowboys. There are three dimensions...

Miami 10, Atlanta 16: Dolphins Preseason Week 1 stock report

In a game that featured many players that are unlikely to make either team’s 53 man roster, the Miami Dolphins lost 16-10 in their preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons. The Dolphins were without key starters Brian Hartline, Mike Wallace, Charles Clay and Olivier Vernon, giving depth players a chance to earn themselves a roster spot. During the limited time Miami’s starters...

Preseason 6-pack: Who to watch for in Week 1

Cover32’s @jscum13 and @Mendel_Cover32 are here to guide you through Miami’s first preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. We agree, preseason games can sometimes be tough on the eyes. Games are often choppy as the offenses and defenses are not quite in sync just yet. But with Miami’s highly publicized issues on the offensive line, this game is important...

Notable Dolphins in jeopardy of being cut

The Miami Dolphins will take the field in Atlanta for their first taste of 2014 preseason action in less than a week. While the outcomes of the four exhibition games are meaningless, they will act as a stage for several key position battles to unfold. As new players make a name for themselves and solidify their spot on the roster, others will see their time as a Dolphin come to an...

Dolphins must manage their weakest links

The saying goes a team is only as strong as its weakest link, and that analogy rings especially true in the game of football. Dolphins fans saw last year when some of their “weakest links” had to be thrown into game action and the results were mixed, to say the least. Let’s start with the good, or at least satisfactory.  Michael Thomas made two of the biggest plays for...

Who’s In, Who’s Out Among Miami Dolphins’ Wide Receivers

The wide receiver position for the Miami Dolphins has evolved from being a position of weakness in 2012 to a position of good (albeit slightly overpaid) quality in 2013. In 2014, that hasn’t changed, saved for a few new players added to the mix. We’re going to look at the Dolphins’ wide outs, where they’d fit in the depth chart, as well as determining who will stay, and who...

Thigpen, who is going into his third season with the team, said after practice he's just trying to get involved in the new offense. Thigpen said he would like to eventually return to running back but understands nothing is concrete. "It is a new offense...

Is Devin Hester an upgrade for the Dolphins?

  By Cyrus (@Cyruslassus on Twitter) The recent news that Devin Hester would “love” to play for the Miami Dolphins and that they are one of the thirteen teams that have approached his agent, has me pretty jazzed.

Rumor: Hester, Moreno and Dolphins Have Mutual Interest

Chris Humphrey/USA TODAY Sports John Miceli (@JohnMiceli15) The Dolphins are in major need of some help in special teams, and at running back.  Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas were terrible in the backfield last season, and I believe current returner Marcus Thigpen is not the answer in special teams. The Dolphins are reportedly interested in both Moreno and Hester and all parties...

Dolphins special teams unit not so special in 2013

When a team finishes 8-8 and misses the playoffs, its offense and defense get scrutinized. Special teams? Usually not so much, though any good coach or player knows how vital a kick, punt and return game can be to a team's overall success. Miami's special teams unit in 2013 was just like the Dolphins overall -- mediocre. There were good things on which to build, and issues...

Three under the radar free agents who could end up in Miami

Last year the Miami Dolphins were the “winners” of free agency by snagging almost every big name available. It is clear that having the best names on  paper does not translate into wins. This year the Dolphins should focus on filling holes, it doesn’t have to be with the biggest names either. The Dolphins are in need of a short yardage back, someone who could get the 4th and...
