Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey said he is "excited" about OLB/DE Dion Jordan and is "looking for big things from him."

"He’s a very talented player and this is a big offseason for him," Hickey said. "Last year with his shoulder he didn’t have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That’s so important." Hickey is patching things back up after it was rumored Jordan could be on the trade block. If the Dolphins want to maximize Jordan's potential, they need to move him around more and let him use his athleticism.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are "intrigued by" WR Armon Binns.

Binns tore his ACL and MCL last summer and missed the entire 2013 season. Prior to the injury, Binns was having a strong offseason and was even pushing Brandon Gibson for slot duties. The 24-year-old goes 6-foot-3 and 211 pounds. Binns will compete with Rishard Matthews for No. 4 receiver work.

The Palm Beach Post considers Richard Matthews the favorite for the Dolphins' slot receiver job.

Matthews took over as Miami's slot receiver in Week 9 last season, filling in for an injured Brandon Gibson. He appeared in all 16 games (five starts) and finished with 41 catches, 448 yards, and two touchdowns. Gibson is owed $3.7 million in 2014 and in jeopardy of losing his roster spot coming off knee surgery. The Fins also signed Damian Williams, who should serve as the No. 4 receiver.

Philly Mag doesn't believe the Dion Jordan-to-Eagles trade talks are "dead" and thinks OLB/DE Brandon Graham and the No. 22 overall pick would get it done.

We don't doubt the 22nd pick in May's draft alone would net the Eagles Jordan. But we do doubt the Eagles would part with the pick in the deal. A report surfaced on Thursday that Philadelphia offered Graham and its second-round pick to Miami in exchange for last year's No. 3 overall pick. Both coach Chip Kelly and vice president of player personnel Tom Gamble are said to "covet" Jordan.
Apr 11 - 9:30 AM

Dolphins agreed to terms with WR Damian Williams, formerly of the Titans, on a one-year, $800,000 contract.

He pencils in as the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver. The No. 77 overall pick of the 2010 draft, Williams has caught just 106 passes in four years, but has experience both on the outside and in the slot. Still only 26 (next month), Williams checks in at 6-foot-1, 193 pounds with 4.5 wheels. It's a nice depth signing for a team that's once again been very active in free agency.

Free agent WR Damian Williams visited the Dolphins on Thursday.

It's Williams' first visit of free agency. A career reserve, Williams has caught only 106 passes since being the No. 77 pick of the 2010 draft, but can man both the slot and the outside. Presumably amenable to playing for at or near the minimum, he'd be a nice signing to round out Miami's receiver corps.

According to the Delaware County Times, the Eagles "made an offer" for Dolphins DE/OLB Dion Jordan earlier this offseason.

Reporter Bob Grotz's report is via a "respected NFL source." Per Grotz, the Eagles were "said to have included" Brandon Graham and a second-round pick. It's not surprising that wasn't enough for a player who was the No. 3 overall pick of last year's draft. It's also not surprising Chip Kelly is (reportedly) interested in reuniting with a player he coached at Oregon. Jordan would be a strong fit for Kelly's attacking 3-4 defense, but he'll almost certainly remain in Miami.

Mike Pouncey wants a contract extension even though the Dolphins will exercise his fifth-year option next month.

The Dolphins have Pouncey under contract for this season at $1.63 million and then the 2015 option at an undisclosed number. But he feels like he's outperformed his contract and the Pro Bowler certainly has a point. The Alex Mack situation isn't going to do the Dolphins any favors in negotiations as the Browns are set to match an offer sheet with an average annual salary of at least $9 million. It's a massive number for a center.
Apr 10 - 9:25 AM

Ryan Tannehill said he has to "make a big jump" this season.

Tannehill is 15-17 through two NFL seasons and hasn't taken the Dolphins to the playoffs. There's plenty of reason to think he can take a significant step forward this season. Seemingly overmatched Mike Sherman is out and creative Bill Lazor is in as offensive coordinator. Expect better offensive balance, efficiency and usage of Mike Wallace. Perhaps more importantly, Branden Albert was signed to stabilize a line that let Tannehill get sacked a league-high 58 times last season.

The Palm Beach Post believes the Dolphins could consider releasing Brandon Gibson.

Gibson tore his left patellar tendon in October and is due $3.7 million in the second year of a three-year pact. The Dolphins would have to eat about $2 million to release Gibson, but they have a cheap, capable slot replacement in Rishard Matthews. Gibson should make the team as long as he's healthy.
Apr 9 - 2:59 PM

Mike Wallace lined up as the Dolphins' right-side wide receiver on 90 percent of the team's offensive snaps in 2013.

As reporter Armando Salguero notes, Wallace "rarely went into the slot" and "rarely motioned." This made Wallace easy for defenses to take away. Salguero suggests new OC Bill Lazor -- formerly the Eagles' QBs coach -- could employ Wallace like Chip Kelly did with DeSean Jackson last season. Jackson aligned all over the formation, and played nearly 30 percent of his snaps in the slot.
Apr 6 - 4:15 PM

Dolphins signed QB Jordan Rodgers.

Rodgers, 25, is best known for being Aaron's younger brother. The Fins are his third NFL team after Rodgers went undrafted out of Vanderbilt last April; he also had brief stints with the Jaguars and Buccaneers. Rodgers is a camp arm.
Apr 2 - 8:59 PM

Dolphins signed OT Jason Fox, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year contract.

Fox (6-foot-6, 314) won the Lions starting right tackle job out of camp last summer but suffered a groin injury in Week 1 before losing the gig to LaAdrian Waddle. The 26-year-old (in May) is an above-average pass blocker and is now penciled in as Miami's starting right tackle. He'll certainly be part of a camp battle.
Apr 2 - 1:32 PM

Dolphins signed WR Kevin Cone, formerly of the Falcons.

Cone (6-foot-2, 216) appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons last season, catching just one pass for 12 yards. It's his only career grab through 29 games. Cone has played a total of 51 offensive snaps in three seasons. He'll try and earn a spot as a special teams player, where he picked up five tackles in 2013.
Apr 2 - 1:01 PM

Free agent OT Jason Fox will visit the Dolphins.

The Dolphins currently have no one penciled in at right tackle. Fox played his college ball at the University of Miami and is just 25 years old, but he profiles as a swing tackle at best. He would be a depth signing to play behind a rookie.
