Dolphins signed No. 67 overall pick OG Billy Turner to a four-year contract.

Turner practiced as the first-team left guard during OTAs, but was overtaken by sophomore Dallas Thomas at minicamp. A four-year starter at North Dakota State, Turner is a strong run blocker and has the size (6'5/315) and arm length (34'') to excel in pass protection. Browns CB Justin Gilbert and Titans OT Taylor Lewan are now the only remaining unsigned draft picks.

NFL sources told ESPN's Field Yates that Charles Clay is among the biggest "offensive nightmare matchups."

There's a bit of hyperbole going on here as Clay is joined on Yates' list by the likes of Calvin Johnson, Jimmy Graham, Adrian Peterson, Rob Gronkowski etc. But it speaks to the underrated real-life value Clay brings to the Dolphins as a versatile pass-catcher (69-759-6 last season), blocker and situational ball carrier. However, fantasy owners should be wary of a statistical regression as new OC Bill Lazor focuses more on the run game and getting Mike Wallace involved.

The NFL isn't expected to suspend Dolphins C Mike Pouncey for his involvement in Bullygate, according to the Miami Herald.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said there's been "no change in [Pouncey's] active status," and he doesn't "anticipate having to address the issue again." All four of Pouncey, Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito, and John Jerry are/were expected to undergo a mental evaluation before returning to the field. It's unclear it those have already happened. Pouncey will miss the first month or so of the season with a torn labrum in his hip. Incognito is the only one out of work.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk that "preliminary evidence indicates" Dolphins C Mike Pouncey and Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey were not involved in the alleged assault at Cameo Nightclub in Miami Beach.

The Pouncey twins and four bouncers are accused of an assault that took place Friday night and into Saturday morning. No arrests have been made. The alleged victim Ricky Vasquez posted messages on Twitter indicating the Pounceys' involvement. Police are investigating, but have not confirmed the Pounceys as suspects.

A man claims he was assaulted by Dolphins C Mike Pouncey and Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey at the twins' birthday party at Cameo Nightclub in Miami Beach Friday night.

The alleged victim Ricky Vasquez took to Twitter, claiming he was "jumped by 4 bouncers and the Pouncey Twins." Vasquez added he was attacked because of his sexual orientation, claiming the assailants used homophobic slurs and saying, "I feel like I just got gay bashed." The Miami Beach PD released a statement saying, "There was an incident that occurred at Cameo last night at 4:20 a.m., where an alleged assault took place. We have not confirmed it's the Pouncey brothers that are the subjects, but we are going to have detectives contacting the victims to investigate further." This is not the first time the brothers' birthday party has made the news. The two got into hot water at last year's event for wearing "Free Hernandez" hats in support of former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez. This incident is obviously more serious, and if founded, could lead to legal action as well as suspensions for each player.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson believes DE Derrick Shelby should see more snaps while DE Dion Jordan is suspended.

Jackson said Shelby is a favorite of coach Joe Philbin and thinks he will be first in line to fill Jordan's role in the defense. Shelby actually played more snaps than Jordan last season -- 446 to 339 -- and was arguably the better player. Shelby recorded 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 2013.

ESPN's James Walker said Dion Jordan's suspension could allow seventh-round DE Terrence Fede to make the Dolphins' roster.

Fede appeared to be ticketed for the practice squad, but the Jordan news could open a spot for Marist's all-time sack leader. Even if he makes the squad, there is little chance Fede will have an impact this season.

Suspended Dolphins DE Dion Jordan claims his four-game ban stems from taking stimulants.

Jordan is claiming he didn't take steroids, despite a noticeably bulked-up frame this spring. "I worked carefully with my advisors and the union to investigate the test results, and I take full responsibility for the test results," he said in a statement. Jordan will miss games against New England, Buffalo, Kansas City, and Oakland. He can return in Week 6, following Miami's Week 5 bye.
Jul 3 - 6:56 PM

NFL suspended Dolphins DE Dion Jordan four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing substance policy.

The No. 3 pick in the 2013 draft, Jordan struggled his first year in the league, recording only two sacks in 339 defensive snaps. Jordan put on almost 20 pounds this offseason, and the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero observed it "looked as if he took an air pump and plugged it into his arms and shoulders." Jordan was rumored to be on the trade block in early spring. On college tape, Jordan resembled a cross between Julian Peterson and Jason Taylor. Just over one year later, and he has many symptoms of a huge draft bust.

Dolphins signed G Daryn Colledge to a one-year contract.

A ninth-year veteran with 124 career starts, College adds interior line depth to a Dolphins unit that'll likely be without C Mike Pouncey (hip surgery) for several games to open the season. A roughly replacement-level starter, Colledge would ideally be a reserve in Miami, with Sam Brenner or Nate Garner holding down center until Pouncey returns. The Fins' current starting guards are Shelley Smith and Dallas Thomas, with rookie Billy Turner pushing for snaps.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are expected to sign free agent OL Daryn Colledge.

Colledge has experience at all five positions on the offensive line, though he's certainly on the downside of his career at age 32 and is merely average at best. The Dolphins are picking Colledge over fellow free agents C Samson Satele, C Steve Vallos, and RT Ryan Harris. Colledge should be a versatile backup.
Jun 30 - 6:53 PM

The Dolphins will host former Cardinals OG Daryn Colledge for a free agent visit.

The Fins are "searching for solutions" after losing C Mike Pouncey to hip surgery, which will cost him at least the first month of the season. Colledge does not have experience at center, but has lots of it at guard, and knows coach Joe Philbin from their time together in Green Bay. He's 32 years old.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker pegs RE Olivier Vernon as a player whose stock continues to rise.

Vernon led the Dolphins with his 11.5 sacks last season and returned to have a dominant spring. "He's real, real good," said new LT Branden Albert, who was beaten by Vernon for two sacks in a scrimmage last week. Vernon remains ahead of last year's No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan for the starting job opposite LE Cameron Wake. The defensive line is the clear strength of the team in Miami.

A Rams source informed Profootballtalk that now-Dolphins CB Cortland Finnegan never actually underwent surgery to repair his 2013 fractured orbital bone.

It's a slow period for NFL news. Last week, Finnegan called out ex-Rams DC Tim Walton by saying his defensive approach was "atrocious," and Walton was "in over his head." The Rams swung back at Finnegan today, saying Walton's game plan wasn't the problem, but Finnegan's play is partly to blame. (In our opinion, both Finnegan and Walton were awful in 2013.) The Rams basically went on to say Finnegan used his eye injury as an excuse for his bad play. The Dolphins are counting on Finnegan to start opposite Brent Grimes this season.
Jun 25 - 5:44 PM

Sam Brenner is expected to take over at center while Mike Pouncey (hip) is sidelined.

Brenner's a second-year UDFA out of Utah. He played 292 offensive snaps as a rookie, making one start at center and three starts at left guard. Brenner received extremely poor marks from PFF both as a pass protector and run blocker. The Dolphins' offensive line is still a major question mark. The projected opening day starters outside of LT Branden Albert have combined for 12 NFL starts.
