Dolphins exercised WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year team option for 2019.

This wasn't as clear cut in Parker's case as some other 2015 first-rounders, but always seemed more likely than not. The enigmatic fourth-year pro will now be due $9.4 million in 2019. That, of course, is guaranteed for injury only. Provided he can pass a physical at the start of the new league year, the Dolphins could move on from Parker without penalty if he struggles through another injury-prone and inconsistent campaign.

The Palm Beach Post expects the Dolphins to exercise DeVante Parker's fifth-year team option.

Parker has disappointed through three seasons, but he just turned 25 and maintains late-breakout potential. The Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad expects Parker's fifth-year option to be worth roughly $9.5 million. Fifth-year team options for former first-round picks are guaranteed only for injury, so the Dolphins could conceivably release Parker next offseason if he doesn't step up in 2018.

Dolphins signed TE Gavin Escobar, formerly of the Browns.

The 47th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Escobar has bounced between the Cowboys, Chiefs, Browns, and now Dolphins over the past two seasons. He has 30 career catches. Escobar will compete for a roster spot in Miami.

The Palm Beach Post reports Kenyan Drake has added at least five pounds this offseason.

Miami wants Drake to get bigger after taking over the starting role last season. He enters OTAs as the favorite for carries over Frank Gore. The Dolphins are hoping for a third-year breakout from Drake after his strong finish to 2017.

Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich reports the Browns have terminated TE Gavin Escobar's contract.

Cleveland waived six others including WR Larry Pinkard and RB Kelvin Taylor. Escobar was always a long-shot to make the Browns' final 53 but his future continues to trend downward following another unsuccessful roster stint. A 2013 second-round pick by the Cowboys, Escobar spent training camp last year with the Chiefs before landing on the Ravens' roster for two games.
Apr 12 - 2:43 PM

Dolphins signed LB Terence Garvin, formerly of the Seahawks.

Garvin played 195 snaps last season, making three starts. Miami has one of the worst linebacker groups, but Garvin should focus on special teams.
Apr 11 - 12:04 PM

The Dolphins could extend DE Cameron Wake this offseason.

Wake is in a walk year after signing a two-year deal last February. The Dolphins want to lock him up through 2019 and could get something done before training camp. Wake is the second highest paid 4-3 end at $9.1M annually.

Coach Adam Gase intimated the Dolphins remain high on DeVante Parker.

We heard the Parker hype literally all of last summer, and Parker answered with a dreadful 2017 that included zero 100-yard games and no touchdowns after Week 3. "I don’t think there is any question what anybody feels he can do," Gase said. "I don’t even think it’s a potential thing. I think it’s a health thing. I think it’s just about however we can keep him healthy. So I think we’re trying to do as much as we can to figure out a way that when we hit spring we start from there and keep building on it. We need a little bit of luck. He’s been trying to do everything the right way. And it’s just kind of have to see where the chips fall." Parker just turned 25 but has yet to reach 800 yards in a season and saw the Dolphins add Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola as free agents after shipping Jarvis Landry to the Browns.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (ACL) will be ready for OTAs.

After attempting to rehab the injury last offseason, Tannehill was forced to undergo surgery last August. The saga led to a lost season, but the surgery should ensure he is returning at close to full health. Although Gase has committed to Tannehill as his starter for this season, the Dolphins have been linked with a move for Baker Mayfield with the 11th overall pick.

Dolphins signed QB Brock Osweiler, formerly of the Broncos, to a one-year contract.

He'll be reunited with Adam Gase, who previously served as Osweiler's OC in Denver. The Fins needed a backup after letting Matt Moore walk in free agency. A year after flaming out in Houston, Osweiler was equally dreadful in his return to Denver, producing a dismal 72.5 quarterback rating over six appearances including four starts. With only Ryan Tannehill ahead of Osweiler on the depth chart, it wouldn't be a surprise if Miami took a quarterback early in next month's draft.
Mar 23 - 4:17 PM

Dolphins re-signed OT Sam Young to a one-year contract.

Young drew six starts at right tackle last year while filling in for an injured Ja'Wuan James. He'll continue to provide tackle depth behind James and Laremy Tunsil.
Mar 23 - 2:16 PM

Dolphins signed RB Frank Gore to a one-year contract.

The Dolphins' strange offseason moves and stockpiling of aging veterans are reportedly aimed at "changing the culture" inside their locker room. Gore, who turns 35 in May, played his college ball at the University of Miami and reportedly wanted to finish his career back home. Gore has averaged below 4.0 yards per carry in three straight seasons and is no longer a passing-game threat. If this is the Dolphins' final running back addition, it will be good news for Kenyan Drake's fantasy value. Drake is a much more explosive option and flashed feature back capability by averaging 119 total yards per game in Weeks 13-17 last year.
Mar 22 - 3:39 PM

Free agent Brock Osweiler is visiting the Dolphins on Thursday.

This connection makes some sense. Osweiler worked with coach Adam Gase in Denver, and Miami is in the market for a backup quarterback. That said, the Dolphins would be better served looking to the draft for a viable long-term option behind Ryan Tannehill.
Mar 22 - 11:53 AM

Frank Gore will visit the Dolphins on Thursday.

Gore was reportedly "nearing a deal" with the Lions last week, but they signed LeGarrette Blount instead. Clearly looking for a veteran sidekick for Kenyan Drake, the Dolphins also met with DeMarco Murray over the weekend. Gore has topped 1,200 yards from scrimmage every season since 2005, his rookie year, but he will turn 35 in May.
Mar 22 - 8:51 AM

Dolphins re-signed QB David Fales to a one-year contract.

For now, he will slot in as Ryan Tannehill's backup. The Dolphins need to do better. Perhaps they will in the draft. 43 of Fales' 48 career attempts came in a mop-up start last Week 17. He tossed a pick and a score in a loss to the Bills.
