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

A seventh-round pick out of Marist last season, Fede played just 82 snaps on defense his rookie year. He did record a sack in his limited snaps and blocked a punt to win the game for the Dolphins Week 16. He could work his way into a situational role with a strong offseason.
Apr 18 - 12:49 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.
Apr 15 - 9:20 AM

The Sun-Sentinel considers Jarvis Landry the Dolphin most likely to have a breakthrough season in 2015.

Landry was extremely impressive as a rookie slot man, leading the team with 84 catches and emerging as Ryan Tannehill's go-to receiver. Now Mike Wallace, Charles Clay and Brian Hartline are all gone, opening up a ton of opportunity. The Dolphins will add outside receiver help in the form of a veteran free agent and/or a draft pick, but Landry is locked into volume. A 100-catch season is within reach.
Apr 14 - 10:26 AM

The Dolphins hope to have an extension done with Ryan Tannehill ahead of Week 1.

Now that Mike Pouncey's $45 million deal is done, the focus shifts to Tannehill. There's not a huge sense of urgency as the Dolphins could exercise Tannehill's fifth-year option for 2016, but the team appears to be making him a priority. It's just a reminder that they've settled on their franchise quarterback.

Dolphins signed CB Zackary Bowman, formerly of the Giants.

30-year-old Bowman is best suited to run down kicks on special teams, but he'll have a chance to compete for a starting job with the Dolphins. Jamar Taylor is currently penciled in opposite Brent Grimes.

Updating a previous item, Dolphins C Mike Pouncey's five-year extension is worth $45 million.

The deal makes Pouncey the NFL's highest paid center, bypassing Raiders C Rodney Hudson. Pouncey got $22 million guaranteed with a $5 million signing bonus. With Pouncey's $7.438 million 2015 salary added to his $45 million extension, he's now signed through 2020 at a total value of $52.438 million over six years. A two-time Pro Bowler (2013, 2014), Pouncey turns 26 this July.
Apr 13 - 1:11 PM

Free agent CB Zackary Bowman is visiting the Dolphins Monday.

Bowman appeared in all 16 games for the Giants last season and all 16 for the Bears before that. The seven-year veteran reserve may actually have a chance to start if he signs with the Dolphins, as Jamar Taylor is currently penciled in opposite Brent Grimes.
Apr 13 - 9:56 AM

The Dolphins are looking "very closely" at potential upgrades on current projected starting RCB Jamar Taylor.

The 54th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Taylor was a disappointment his first two seasons and is currently recovering from a torn labrum in his shoulder. The Fins have hosted Trae Waynes (Michigan State), Jalen Collins (LSU), and Kevin Johnson (Wake Forest) for pre-draft visits, while reportedly considering making a trade offer for Philadelphia's Brandon Boykin.
Apr 12 - 2:27 PM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert's (knee surgery) recovery has been setback-free.

Albert fully expects to be on the field protecting Ryan Tannehill's blind side Week 1 after tearing his ACL and MCL in November. He's not yet running at full speed, but plans to "soon." Albert is currently working out at a boxing gym in Florida in the afternoons after rehabbing at the Dolphins' facility in the mornings. Albert was playing at an All-Pro level before getting hurt last Week 10.
Apr 12 - 10:13 AM

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey's contract extension is worth $52.15 million over five years with $22 million guaranteed and an $11 million signing bonus.

The contract makes Pouncey the league's highest-paid center. Pouncey struggled at right guard last season after missing the first four games recovering from offseason hip surgery. He had been one of the better centers in the league through his first three years, however, and is just entering his age-26 season. Pouncey still has room to grow, and should be a foundational piece of the Dolphins' line for years to come.

Apr 11 - 10:50 AM

Dolphins signed C Mike Pouncey to a contract extension.

The deal is expected to make Pouncey the league's highest paid center. Despite coming off a down year, Pouncey is a building block for Miami's offensive line. He's still just 25 and has Pro Bowl appearances in two of his first four seasons. With Pouncey locked up, the Dolphins could turn their attention to an extension for Ryan Tannehill.
Apr 10 - 8:08 PM

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports the Dolphins are finalizing an extension with C Mike Pouncey.

The deal is expected to be in the range of Maurkice Pouncey's five-year, $44 million contract with the Steelers, with between $20-25M guaranteed. Miami wanted to extend Pouncey last offseason, but off-field concerns forced the Dolphins to pick up his 2015 option. Pouncey should be paid as one of the top centers in the league.
Apr 10 - 4:58 PM

Matt Moore's one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Dolphins includes $1.6 million guaranteed.

In other words, Moore isn't going to get cut and is locked in as Ryan Tannehill's primary backup. Josh Freeman, who got $765,000 with no guaranteed money, will merely compete for developmental No. 3 duties.
Apr 7 - 11:55 AM

The Palm Beach Post expects the Dolphins to upgrade on Damien Williams as their No. 2 running back.

Williams is the current favorite to open the season as Lamar Miller's backup, but will likely face competition in the form of a veteran or draft pick. Miami visited with free agent Stevan Ridley this week. Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey also hasn't ruled out re-signing Knowshon Moreno.
Apr 4 - 4:45 PM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker believes newly-signed LB Spencer Paysinger would be a starter if the season began today.

Miami will look to add linebacker talent in the draft, but Paysinger signed with the Dolphins because he saw an opportunity to start. "I did my homework on them before the trip and I saw that they had a few linebackers that aren't with the team anymore and it just looked like an opportunity," Paysinger said. "For me, it's all about having an opportunity." Paysinger only played 81 snaps as a reserve linebacker for the Giants last season, but he held his own in an extended stint as a starter in 2013.
