Dolphins re-signed DE Derrick Shelby to a one-year, $2.35 million contract.

A restricted free agent, Shelby was tendered at the second-round level. A 2012 undrafted free agent, Shelby has appeared in at least 15 games each of the past three seasons. He notched two sacks across 420 snaps last season. He'll remain a role player in 2015.

The Dolphins expect LT Branden Albert (ACL, MCL) to be ready for Week 1.

Per the Miami Herald, Albert is "on track." Albert said earlier this month that he's been "progressing well." He should still be considered questionable for training camp until further notice.

Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey believes FS Louis Delmas (ACL) could be ready for June's mandatory minicamp.

The 28-year-old (next month) safety is just three months removed from going under the knife, so we'd consider minicamp an unlikely return date. Delmas himself has said he expects to be ready for Week 1, but we'd consider him highly questionable for the start of training camp. The Dolphins have zero reason to rush a player with Delmas' injury history.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin prefers to use Billy Turner at right guard because he thinks he lines up better in that stance.

With Daryn Colledge unlikely to re-sign and Mike Pouncey moving back to center, the Dolphins have holes to fill at the two guard spots. Limiting Turner to the right side should give Dallas Thomas a chance to start at left guard. Turner's only work last season came in the season finale, when he played 17 snaps at right tackle.

Dolphins signed coach Joe Philbin to a one-year extension through 2016.

"You don't get the best from someone when operating with a gun to their head," was owner Stephen Ross' explanation for extending Philbin's deal. Turning 54 years old this July, Philbin's Dolphins teams have gone 7-9, 8-8, and 8-8 through three years on the job. You can read where Philbin finished in Patrick Daugherty's ranking of the NFL's head coaches at the link below.

Dolphins football czar Mike Tannenbaum confirms the team has been talking about a long-term extension with Ryan Tannehill.

"We have the quarterback," Tannenbaum said in endorsing his signal caller. Per Tannenbaum, the team has "told (Tannehill) what it can do on a long-term deal." That doesn't sound like a negotiation so much as an early ultimatum. Considering the extreme scarcity of competent quarterbacks, Tannehill holds most, if not all, of the leverage. Tannenbaum hinted the team will exercise Tannehill's 2016 option if a long-term agreement doesn't appear to be in sight.

The Dolphins are contemplating moving DE Dion Jordan to linebacker full-time.

Philip Wheeler's release gave the Dolphins an opening at strong side linebacker. Jordan has experience playing linebacker from his time at the University of Oregon and was used in speed packages throughout his first two seasons. With Cameron Wake standing in his way at defensive end, Jordan's best chance to start would be at "Sam" 'backer. In two seasons since the Dolphins took him third overall, Jordan has contributed a total of three sacks and 46 tackles while often looking overwhelmed on the field.

Dallas Thomas and Billy Turner are currently penciled in as the Dolphins' starting guards.

Mike Pouncey and Daryn Colledge were the Dolphins' starting right and left guards, respectively, last season, but Pouncey is moving back to center and Colledge is a free agent. The Dolphins also cut both Shelley Smith and Nate Garner. Thomas was one of the league's worst players across 695 snaps last season, while Turner played just 17 snaps as a third-round rookie.

Mike Pouncey will move back to center for the Dolphins in 2015.

Returning from offseason hip surgery, Pouncey volunteered to play right guard last season in order to let Samson Satele continue to handle the center spot. Miami has received extremely poor guard play in recent seasons, but Pouncey is going back to the pivot spot with Satele now a free agent. Pouncey should have a much better year at his natural position as one of the top centers in the league.

Dolphins re-signed RB LaMichael James to a one-year contract.

James appeared in two games with Miami last year after getting cut by the 49ers. With Daniel Thomas not expected to be re-signed, James will compete for a roster spot behind Lamar Miller and Damien Williams. 25-year-old James is a candidate for Miami's kick return job.
Mar 20 - 5:12 PM

Dolphins FS Louis Delmas (knee) expects to be ready for Week 1.

Three months removed from ACL surgery, Delmas is questionable for the start of training camp. He re-signed on a one-year deal and will return as the starter opposite Reshad Jones when healthy. Delmas is coming off a bounce back 2014 with 63 tackles, three pass breakups, and an interception prior to going down.

Dolphins re-signed QB Matt Moore to a one-year contract.

Going on 31, Moore hasn't made a start since the 2011 season. ESPN's Adam Caplan reported the Bills would have pursued Moore had Matt Cassel not passed his physical. Instead, Moore will return as Ryan Tannehill's backup. Moore is Rotoworld sophomore Ray Summerlin's favorite quarterback in the NFL.

Dolphins re-signed FS Louis Delmas to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

28-year-old Delmas was enjoying a solid 2014 season before tearing his ACL in Week 14. It's unclear whether he'll be ready for training camp. The Fins have improved their front four this offseason, but have needs throughout the back seven. They need competition for Delmas and a starting right corner.
Mar 20 - 1:36 PM

Dolphins signed C J.D. Walton, formerly of the Giants.

Walton started all 16 games last season, but was among the game's worst centers. He'll back up Mike Pouncey in Miami. Walton turns 28 next week.
Mar 19 - 6:42 PM

Free agent C J.D. Walton will visit the Dolphins on Thursday.

Walton finished fourth-worst among qualified centers in PFF's position rankings in 2014. Mike Pouncey has already said he's moving back to center, so Walton would only be a backup if he signs with Miami or anywhere else.
