The Miami Herald expects the Dolphins to place Dion Jordan on the trade block.

Jordan was a no-show for the start of offseason workouts, leading some to question his commitment to the team. In two years since Miami took him third overall, Jordan has been suspended twice and failed to establish a meaningful role on defense. Miami would lose $1 million in cap space by trading Jordan.

Dolphins VP of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said the team hasn’t decided whether to give Ryan Tannehill an extension.

Tannehill’s value is peaking after he posted career highs in passing yards (4,045) and touchdowns (27). The Dolphins are expected to pick up his fifth-year option, and could make him play out 2015 before giving him a big-money deal. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport expects Miami to extend Tannehill by Week 1.

Dolphins VP of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum shed little light Friday on Dion Jordan's absence from the team's offseason program.

"If someone choses not to be here, that's their decision," Tannenbaum said, ominously. Jordan has endured suspensions, ineffectiveness, and an inability to establish a meaningful role on the Dolphins' defense since Jeff Ireland traded up to make Jordan the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft. At this point, the Dolphins might be willing to trade Jordan for a late-round pick.

Greg Jennings' two-year, $8 million deal with the Dolphins included a $3 million signing bonus.

This isn't a late-career flier contract. The $3 million bonus assures Jennings of a roster spot, and a $4 million year-one commitment suggests the Fins are counting on Jennings for a relatively significant role. The Jennings signing also may discourage the Dolphins from using a high pick at wide receiver, which would be good news for Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and Jordan Cameron's fantasy values.

New Dolphins WR Greg Jennings says he'd "love" to run more routes outside after spending the majority of his time in the slot the past two seasons.

Per Pro Football Focus, 66.8 percent of Jennings' routes came in the slot last season. The slot is Jarvis Landry's home in Miami, so Jennings is going to get his wish. However, it should only stand to make him less efficient. Jennings averaged 64 catches over the past two years. We doubt he comes close to that in 2015.

The Dolphins still hope to come away with one of the top-nine receivers in next week's draft.

Signing a slow-footed 32-year-old in Greg Jennings won't change the Dolphins' draft plans very much. The Miami Herald says they'll try to trade back in the first round, but are going to add more wideout talent at some point to a depth chart that now reads Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, Jennings. The Herald says the Dolphins' top nine receiver prospects are (in no particular order) Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker, Breshad Perriman, Nelson Agholor, Phillip Dorsett, Dorial Green-Beckham, Devin Smith and Sammie Coates.

Dolphins signed WR Greg Jennings to a two-year, $8 million contract.

Jennings gives Miami a veteran presence behind Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. He has strong ties to HC Joe Philbin, who spent six years with Jennings in Green Bay. Jennings has been in major decline the last three seasons and turns 32 in September. The Dolphins will likely use Jennings on the outside in three-wide sets, with Jarvis Landry remaining in the slot. Jennings should be a candidate for 45-55 catches on the Dolphins, but is unlikely to reemerge as a significant fantasy contributor.
Apr 22 - 5:50 PM

Dolphins signed OL Jacques McClendon to a one-year contract.

McClendon appeared in 13 games (three starts) for Jacksonville last year. He gives Miami interior line depth with the ability to back up at multiple spots. A career journeyman, McClendon has played on four teams over the past five seasons.

Dolphins signed G/T Jeff Linkenbach, formerly of the Chiefs.

Linkenbach can play both guard spots and right tackle in a pinch. He has 36 career starts under his belt with most of those coming with the Colts from 2010-2013. Even with Miami needing guard help, Linkenbach is unlikely to start.
Apr 22 - 2:33 PM

Free agent G/T Jeff Linkenbach will visit the Dolphins on Wednesday.

Miami will host a number of veteran free-agent guards on Wednesday, including Linkenbach and Jeff Baca. Household names, we know. Linkenbach, 28 in June, has started 36 games for the Colts and Chiefs the past five seasons.

Dolphins DE/OLB Dion Jordan was a no-show for the start of Miami's offseason program.

The reasons for Jordan's absence weren't immediately clear. The third overall pick in the 2013 draft, Jordan has been a bust through his first two NFL seasons, and has yet to nail down a primary position in the Dolphins' defense.
Apr 20 - 5:00 PM

Ndamukong Suh was present as the Dolphins opened their spring workouts.

It's only notable because Suh annually ruffled feathers in Detroit by skipping these voluntary sessions. It appears he wants to make a good first impression in Miami after they gave him a $114 million contract with $60 million guaranteed.
Apr 20 - 10:21 AM

Dolphins DE Terrence Fede expects to have a bigger defensive role in his sophomore season.

A seventh-round pick out of Marist, Fede played just 82 snaps on defense his rookie year. He did record a sack and had a game-winning blocked punt. Fede could work his way into a situational role with a strong offseason.

Free agent Greg Jennings left his Saints visit without a contract.

It'll be his last visit, according to the New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill. In addition to the Saints, the Ravens, Panthers, and Jaguars remain interested in Jennings. He also visited the Dolphins after his release from the Vikings. Jennings isn't going to get more than about $3 million on a one-year contract.
Apr 17 - 12:48 PM

Dolphins signed WR LaRon Byrd.

Byrd, 26 in August, played his college ball at Miami. He looks the part at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds with 4.45 wheels, but has bounced around the league since entering as an UDFA in 2012. He's appeared in just five career games, making an eight-yard catch. Byrd will compete for the Dolphins' No. 5 receiver job.
