Player News - Dolphins

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports "confidants of [Dolphins owner] Stephen Ross" informed him that Ross "was ready to move on" from DT Ndamukong Suh.

Suh is heading into the fourth year of a six-year, $114 million mega-deal and is set to count a whopping $26.1 million against the Dolphins' salary cap. That's almost $9 million more than the next-closest defensive tackle. Suh just turned 31 last month but remains a legitimate game-wrecking force inside. However, the Dolphins need a lot more than Suh before they start competing for Super Bowls. Designating Suh a post-June 1 cut would save Miami $17 million versus the cap.

The Miami Herald expects Jakeem Grant to be a bigger part of the Dolphins' offense in 2018.

That's "whether Jarvis Landry is here or not." Grant caught just three passes before December in 2017, though he did come on in the final month. Ex-OC Clyde Christensen lamented not getting Grant more involved earlier in the season. New OC Dowell Loggains has already talked him up. "His play strength for being a small guy, he plays very physical and very strong," Loggains said. "I’m really excited about him." We believe Loggains, but Grant's 5-foot-7 frame ultimately caps his upside.

Dolphins CB Tony Lippett (Achilles') is expected to be ready for OTAs.

Lippett went down in mid-August. The 2015 fifth-rounder was a 13-game starter in 2016, picking off four passes. He flashed upside but was inconsistent. Going on 26, Lippett will initially try to fight his way back as a reserve.

Dolphins DE Andre Branch underwent knee surgery on Wednesday.

The details of the surgery aren't clear, but it sounds like it was more of a clean-up procedure. Branch inked a three-year, $24 million deal last March after producing 5.5 sacks in 2016. He predictably flopped in 2017, recording just four takedowns and grading out as Pro Football Focus' seventh-worst 4-3 end out of 64 qualifiers. Branch is nothing more than a rotational piece.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson still gets the "sense" that Jarvis Landry's "most likely scenario" is leaving the Dolphins in free agency.

There has been positive rhetoric on Landry and the Dolphins' communication recently, but Jackson reports a "sizable gap" remains "between each side's financial vision" of Landry's value, and "the sides aren't close." The Dolphins made Landry a counter offer in mid-December, but no proposals have been exchanged since. Landry led the NFL in catches (112) in 2017. He turned 25 in November.

Impending free agent Jarvis Landry says he's "making progress" in contract talks with the Dolphins.

"We're working," Landry said. "Hopefully it'll work into something." Landry's comments come one day after the Miami Herald guessed Landry will not be back in 2018. Landry said last week he's felt disrespected in talks. Reading the tea leaves since last summer, the Dolphins have given little indication they're willing to give Landry anything other than a team-friendly deal.

The Miami Herald doesn't expect the Dolphins to re-sign free agent Jarvis Landry.

The Dolphins haven't shown much interest in extending Landry and look unlikely to meet his demands. Landry is pushing for $13 million annually and won't take a hometown discount to stay in Miami. With DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills under contract, the Dolphins have the depth to move on from Landry. Baltimore has been linked as a possible suitor for Landry if he reaches free agency.

Dolphins MLB Raekwon McMillan (knee) is expected to be ready for OTAs.

McMillan, the No. 54 overall pick in last year's draft, missed his entire rookie season after tearing his ACL in the preseason opener. He was expected to be the team's starting middle linebacker. Instead, Miami had to turn to washed-up Rey Maualuga and unproven Mike Hull. The two rarely saw the field, with the Dolphins instead playing Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons on every snap.

According to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec, the Ravens were one of the teams that spoke to the Dolphins about a potential Jarvis Landry trade last offseason.

It's notable since Landry is now set to become a free agent in less than two months with Miami not showing much desire to get him inked to a long-term deal. However, Zrebiec "cannot imagine" the Ravens meeting Landry's sky-high asking price at north of $13 million annually. After failing to acquire Landry last year, the Ravens signed Jeremy Maclin, who was a major disappointment and will likely be one-and-done in Baltimore. This offense badly needs weapons.
Jan 24 - 9:45 AM

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are unlikely to re-sign impending free agent Matt Moore.

He's nearing the end of his seven-year tenure with Miami as "both sides currently feel a need for change." While he never came out and directly said it, Moore implied he was unhappy the Dolphins didn't give him a chance to start despite the underwhelming play of Jay Cutler this past season. The 33-year-old has carved a nice niche for himself as a veteran backup and shouldn't take long to resurface this offseason.
Jan 23 - 3:27 PM

Dolphins hired Clyde Christensen as director of football and player development.

Christensen was removed as offensive coordinator but will stay in Miami in a different role. The Dolphins are going with Dowell Loggains to replace Christensen, though Adam Gase will continue to call plays.
Jan 19 - 3:10 PM

The player rep for free agent Jarvis Landry told the Palm Beach Post his client will not accept a hometown discount from the Dolphins.

The Dolphins spent the entire 2017 season trying to trade Landry, so this isn't a surprise. "Take a discount? Absolutely not," said agent Damarious Bilbo. "This may be Jarvis’ first and last time to set himself up and his family up. He needs to strike and strike while the iron is hot." Landry is expected to target elite No. 1 receiver money. Davante Adams' recent four-year, $58 million extension figures to be a baseline for Landry's asking price.
Jan 17 - 9:41 PM

Dolphins hired ex-Broncos RBs coach Eric Studesville as RBs coach and run-game coordinator.

Studesville was fired from his post as the Broncos' RBs coach and interviewed for the Giants' head-coaching gig shortly after. He was never thought to be a serious candidate. In Miami, Studesville will rejoin coach Adam Gase after the two worked together in Denver. Kenyan Drake is Studesville's next project.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports impending free agent Jarvis Landry is seeking a "contract in the range" of the one Davante Adams signed with the Packers at the end of the season.

Adams signed a four-year, $58 million pact with $18 million guaranteed, and his $14.5 million annual average made Adams the league's fourth-highest-paid wideout. Adams is a prolific touchdown scorer, whereas Landry is coming off a career-best nine scores this past season. He has 22 touchdowns in four seasons and plays strictly out of the slot. Doug Baldwin and Keenan Allen are making just north of $11 million per year as the highest-paid slot receivers. To this point, Landry has said he's felt a bit "disrespected" by Miami's handling of negotiations.
Jan 17 - 11:12 AM

The Dolphins are pursuing Eric Studesville as their RB coach.

Studesville was fired from Denver earlier this month. He interviewed for the Giants’ head-coaching job but was never a serious candidate. The Dolphins had one of the worst rushing attacks in the league despite a strong final month from Kenyan Drake. Studesville has also been linked as a possible offensive coordinator for wherever Josh McDaniels lands.
