Player News - Dolphins

Date: Team: Pos:

Speaking Thursday, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said an extension for contract-year WR Jarvis Landry isn't "mandatory."

Ross went on to mention the franchise tag as an option next offseason. It's become increasingly clear the Dolphins have little appetite to extend Landry unless it's on exceedingly team-friendly terms. The franchise tag is also unrealistic for a 5-foot-11 slot receiver. Coach Adam Gase seems to be telling Dolphins brass he doesn't need Landry beyond this season.

The Miami Herald reports DeVante Parker "(blew) up" the first day of Dolphins training camp.

"I think he was looking to not ease into camp," coach Adam Gase said afterward. "When I saw him (Wednesday) night, I could tell he was ready to get after it." Parker was an offseason puff piece fixture, perhaps setting a record. Both the Dolphins and media alike have been hyping his improvement since the first pad-less practice. According to Fantasy Football Calculator's ADP, Parker is currently the No. 92 player off the board.

Ryan Tannehill (knee) said he plans to keep using his feet as a weapon.

Coming off a partially torn ACL late last season, Tannehill reportedly moved well during offseason practices despite wearing a brace, and coach Adam Gase has said he looks "normal." He plans to continue wearing a brace during the regular season. It would not be surprising if Tannehill, who has averaged over 200 yards rushing a season throughout his career, ran a little less moving forward. At the helm a limited passing offense, Tannehill is only a factor in two-quarterback formats.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins will give Alterraun Verner "every opportunity" to beat out slot-corner Bobby McCain.

The Herald goes on to mention that Verner's roster spot "isn't assured," and he is a "rare player" who could potentially start or not even make the team. This highlights the upside of the former second-team All-Pro accurately. Verner's play in training camp will be crucial to his 2017 impact.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) is working on the side at the start of camp.

Pouncey was medically cleared, but the Dolphins are not going to rush him. In fact, it would not be a surprise if he spent most of camp working with trainers off to the side. On the bright side, Pouncey looks to be on track for Week 1.

Dolphins placed SS Reshad Jones on the active/NFI list.

Per the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, Jones "tweaked something" while working out away from the team and is expected to be fine. The injury isn't related to his 2016 shoulder issue. Jones will miss the first days of training camp, but can be activated at any time.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) has been medically cleared for training camp.

Pouncey has battled a number of hip issues in his career and was sent to I.R. last Week 10 only to need another surgery. He's recovered nicely and appears to be ahead of schedule. Expect the Dolphins to continue to take it slow with their stud center, but he's fully expected to be out there in Week 1.

940 Miami's Andy Slater reports Dolphins LB Koa Misi (neck, I.R.) is retiring from the NFL after seven seasons.

Miami placed Misi on season-ending I.R. earlier Tuesday. He was trying to work his way back from spinal fusion surgery that limited him to three games last season. The 30-year-old was the 40th overall pick in 2010 and started 72 games for the Dolphins, recording 12 career sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. He could play both strong side and the MIKE spots and was above-average against the run.

Dolphins placed LB Koa Misi on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Just Tuesday, coach Adam Gase said he was "confident" Misi would "play football again," but it won't be for the Dolphins in 2017. If Misi does get healthy, he would have to be released with an injury settlement. Now 30, Misi played just three games last season before undergoing surgery. Things aren't looking bright for his NFL future. The Dolphins' top three linebackers are Kiko Alonso, Lawrence Timmons and second-rounder Raekwon McMillan.

Dolphins signed CB Alterraun Verner, formerly of the Bucs.

Signed to big money by the Bucs in 2014, Verner struggled his way into a smaller and smaller role, eventually playing just 241 snaps last season. Still only 28, he'll likely push Bobby McCain for slot-defender snaps. That is, if Verner makes the team. There's a reason Verner languished on the open market for over five months.
Jul 25 - 3:50 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase is "confident" LB Koa Misi will "play football again."

Misi has yet to be cleared to practice, and doesn't seem to have a return timeline. ESPN's James Walker theorized earlier this month that Misi is on the roster bubble. The Dolphins are protected at linebacker with Kiko Alonso, Lawrence Timmons and second-rounder Raekwon McMillan.
Jul 25 - 2:09 PM

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip surgery) "wants to practice," but coach Adam Gase believes he could still be held out for the entire preseason.

Pouncey has made "real improvement" since minicamp. The takeaway is that Pouncey is feeling good and wanting to get on the field. The Dolphins, wisely, are not going to take any chances. Everything is geared toward having Pouncey ready for Week 1. That appears realistic. It would be excellent news for Jay Ajayi.
Jul 25 - 2:02 PM

The Dolphins worked out free agent CBs Alterraun Verner and Tony Carter on Tuesday.

Since peaking in 2013 as a second-team All-Pro, Verner has failed to live up to expectations. Still only 28, the Dolphins could be a good fit for Verner as a backup.
Jul 25 - 10:41 AM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins still want to sign walk-year WR Jarvis Landry to an extension.

Miami has yet to make an offer to the receiver, but Salguero reports the organization is simply doing their due diligence to avoid offending Landry with a low-ball offer. Salguero also expects the Dolphins to tag Landry next spring if they are unable to work out a long-term deal, a move which would cost them $15 million. We are more skeptical about Miami's desire to re-sign the slot receiver and even more so about them paying him $15 million for one season, but Salguero is as plugged in as anyone.
Jul 24 - 10:40 AM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker wrote Ryan Tannehill moved well during offseason practices despite a brace on his left knee.

Tannehill did not require surgery after partially tearing his ACL late last season, but he will be forced to wear a brace. That brace could be a concern for a player who has averaged over 200 yards rushing a season throughout his career, but the Dolphins have consistently said the quarterback "looks normal." Relegated to an Alex Smith-esque game manager role last season, Tannehill is only a factor in two quarterback leagues.
