Ryan Tannehill credits stem cell therapy with healing his injured ACL.

Tannehill has been practicing without restriction since March. Tannehill's injury was not a full tear. Avoiding surgery is often the same thing as merely delaying it, but that does not appear to be the case in this instance. Tannehill had never missed a game until he went down late last season.

Dolphins SLB Koa Misi (neck surgery) remains sidelined.

Speaking Thursday, coach Adam Gase said it would be "still some time." Misi is questionable for the beginning of training camp, but his roster spot appears safe after he agreed to a restructured contract. He should be a starter if healthy.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase suggested Jay Ajayi could see as many as 350 carries this season.

This assumes his health cooperates, of course, and that the Dolphins lead on the scoreboard enough to feed Ajayi the nearly 22 carries per week required to approach 350 attempts. Regardless, it's clear the Dolphins' offense is now built around Ajayi and not on Ryan Tannehill's arm. "I'm ready for it," Ajayi said when asked about his feature back usage. "I prepare myself every season to take a huge workload and be able to carry the team, and I think I'm ready for that." Ajayi is one of the highest-upside running back picks in the second round.

Dolphins signed first-round DE Charles Harris to a four-year contract.

The deal includes the standard fifth-year option. Harris was highly productive in college, but had a disappointing Combine (4.82 speed, 9-foot-1 broad jump). There's concern he'll max out as a situational pass rusher.

"Multiple sources" told the Miami Herald that DeVante Parker "has been so impressive this offseason" that Dolphins coaches are now hopeful he can "finally develop" into a "dominant threat."

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen has said the same publicly. Per the Herald's Armando Salguero, during the offseason program Parker has "come to understand that staying healthy is key to his success," which means "eating right," no longer skipping meals, and taking the team nutritionist's advice. Parker is also showing up on time after tardiness was a recurring early-career theme. In the past, Parker didn't always get enough sleep or work hard in practice. He is apparently doing those things now. If Parker has indeed matured, he has the god-given ability to take a third-year fantasy leap.

DeVante Parker said he expects to have a "big season" in 2017.

This comes two weeks after OC Clyde Christensen said he's expecting a "gigantic year" out of Parker. Entering his third season, Parker has missed just three total games in two years, but hamstring and foot issues haven't allowed him to practice much at times, which then limited him in games. Parker has focused on leg work this offseason in hopes to get his muscles to cooperate for a full 16-game season. Parker remains a high-risk, high-upside WR3/4.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) could sit out the preseason.

The Dolphins plan to move Pouncey slowly as he recovers from his nagging hip issue. He’s expected to miss the entire offseason and will practice sparingly during training camp. The Dolphins can’t afford to take chances with Pouncey, who is one of the NFL's highest-impact offensive linemen.

Dolphins signed fifth-round DT Davon Godchaux to a four-year contract.

A low-floor prospect with pass-rush upside, Godchaux endured off-the-field and effort issues at LSU. Godchaux could eventually develop into a rotational pocket pusher behind Ndamukong Suh and Jordan Phillips.
May 16 - 5:32 PM

Dolphins re-signed RB Damien Williams to a one-year, $1.797 million contract.

As of eight days ago, Williams was "refusing" to sign. It hurts to have zero leverage. Williams is lucky to even get $1.797 million, as the Dolphins want to involve change-of-pace back Kenyan Drake more behind workhorse Jay Ajayi.
May 11 - 3:54 PM

The Dolphins have asked second-year KR Jakeem Grant to learn outside receiver.

Grant's primary role is kick returns, but Miami is trying to develop him as a gadget player. "I think he's going to be a gimmick guy. He’s always going to be a specialist but there’s no reason he can’t play some series," OC Clyde Christensen said. "We all see him having a bigger role and getting more out of him than we did last year. We’re always looking for ways to get him on the field."
May 6 - 7:11 PM

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen said Jay Ajayi's receiving skills are "200 percent" better than this time last year.

Christensen saw nothing but rainbows and unicorns on Saturday, adding there is "no question" Ajayi will be better this season after spending several minutes praising DeVante Parker, Laremy Tunsil, and Julius Thomas. The passing game is one area Ajayi can improve on his breakout season after averaging just 5.6 yards on 27 receptions. Ajayi was good out of the backfield in college, so it will not be surprising if he takes a step forward in that department. Already a locked-in RB1, Ajayi could push into the top five if he sees a big bump in targets.

When asked about what Julius Thomas can add to the offense, Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen said, "10, 12 touchdowns."

"That's what he added in Denver," Christensen continued. Thomas caught 24 touchdowns in 27 games playing for now Dolphins coach Adam Gase in Denver, and the tight end said he feels "at home" after being reunited with Gase this offseason. Thomas' touchdown total dipped to four in nine games last year with the Jaguars, the same total Dion Sims managed on limited targets in Miami. If he can stay on the field, Thomas should easily better that total this year.
May 6 - 12:35 PM

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen said left tackle is sophomore Laremy Tunsil's "natural position."

Christensen added his confidence is "extremely high" Tunsil will succeed at left tackle. Considering they traded away Branden Albert, the rest of the organization clearly agrees. The Dolphins are set at tackle, but the interior line remains a big concern, especially with C Mike Pouncey's (hip) health in question.
May 6 - 12:23 PM

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen expects DeVante Parker to have a "gigantic year."

Christensen says he's "seeing what we were hoping to see" out of Parker, who is "healthy" and "hungry." The offseason is new, but the refrain remains the same. To be fair, Parker is clearly talented and had spurts of great play last season, but he has struggled to stay healthy and consistently perform when on the field. He will remain a risk-reward proposition in fantasy.
May 6 - 12:17 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase says Ryan Tannehill (knee) "looks normal."

"Looks like he did last year. He moves around fine," said Gase. "You can tell he wasn’t real happy about getting hurt." Tannehill has been working with no restrictions despite being five months removed from a partially torn ACL. There’s been no concern over his OTA status. The Dolphins turned Tannehill into an Alex Smith-like game manager in Gase's first season as coach.
