The Miami Herald reports some Dolphins players believe WR Rishard Matthews would "thrive if he had a larger role."

Matthews tried to force a trade earlier this offseason, but it doesn't appear to have hurt his standing amongst his teammates. Matthews has always offered promise in the slot, but is a redundant talent on a team with Jarvis Landry and Greg Jennings. Coming off a 12-catch season, Matthews will be no higher than No. 5 on the depth chart if DeVante Parker (foot surgery) is ready for Week 1.

The Miami Herald reports there's "definitely concern" about the Dolphins' situation at guard.

Reporter Barry Jackson is citing "(feedback) from Dolphins players." Neither of coach Joe Philbin's guard spots are settled, though Jackson does pass along that fourth-rounder Jamil Douglas has "had some good moments" this offseason. Douglas should get every opportunity to unseat Dallas Thomas.

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins "aren't actively trying" to recoup money from suspended DE Dion Jordan's signing bonus and may keep him beyond the 2015 season.

Jordan seems to have distanced himself from the organization after getting suspended for the entire 2015 campaign. Despite Jordan's troubles away from the gridiron and his inconsistency on it, the Dolphins aren't ready to throw in the towel on the former No. 3 overall pick. Jordan's four-year, $20.572 million contract is fully guaranteed.

Koa Misi said he has improved as a middle linebacker this offseason.

Misi played in the middle for the first time in his career last season after spending four years on the outside. Despite missing five games due to injury, Misi recorded 66 tackles and showed well in coverage. With Ndamukong Suh taking up blockers in front of him, Misi could take a step forward this year.

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill has been throwing a better deep ball this offseason.

Per reporter Barry Jackson, Tannehill's teammates have been "effusive" in their praise of his offseason. "Ryan is way better than last year, and more of a leader," were the words of TE Dion Sims. We don't doubt Tannehill's deep ball is looking good in pad-less practices, but it's not going to be a big part of his game in 2015. Mike Wallace has been shipped out, while the Dolphins have done their best to load up on short-to-intermediate targets. Although the long game is not one of Tannehill's specialties, he retains top-eight upside as a fantasy quarterback.

Per ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker, "no player has improved his standing with the team" more this offseason than SLB Chris McCain.

McCain worked with ones during minicamp and OTAs after playing just 46 snaps last year behind Dannell Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler. Ellerbe was traded and Wheeler cut, giving McCain the inside track to start at SAM linebacker. Expect the Dolphins to use the versatile 23-year-old at defensive end on third downs and obvious passing situations.

Ryan Tannehill is making quicker reads this offseason.

"He's had a good offseason," coach Joe Philbin said. "We've worked on the chemistry and conceptually we've added things that are slightly different and then reinforced others." Tannehill’s comfort level in the offense has improved in his second year under Bill Lazor. The Dolphins want him to be more efficient in the red-zone, where they ranked in the bottom-third of the league last season. With an upgraded supporting cast, Tannehill should be viewed as a high-floor QB1.

Dolphins MLB Koa Misi believes he'll have more room to operate playing behind Ndamukong Suh.

"[Suh] takes up another guy, so basically it allows us to move around a little bit better," Misi described. Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Misi looks "more comfortable" this offseason after battling hamstring issues throughout 2014. He finished last season as PFF's 12th overall inside linebacker.
Jun 18 - 8:43 PM

Dolphins VP of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said Devante Parker (foot surgery) should be ready for Week 1.

Parker was given an 8-12 week timetable, putting him on track for the start of the season if he avoids setbacks. The Dolphins are hoping Parker can resume practicing late in camp. Parker was the favorite to start at X receiver prior to going down, but will be behind Greg Jennings and Kenny Stills when he returns.

Dolphins signed DT C.J. Mosley to a one-year contract.

It's a solid depth signing for Miami. Mosley graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 26 defensive tackle last season, receiving positive marks both against the run and pass. He's good friends with Ndamukong Suh and should slot in as the Dolphins' No. 3 defensive tackle behind Suh and fellow starter Earl Mitchell.

Free agent DT C.J. Mosley will visit with more teams after meeting with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

The Dolphins offered Mosley a contract, but he wants to see what else is out there. Mosley's agent Harold Lewis called it a "great visit," so it's certainly possible he could circle back to Miami. Dolphins VP of football operations Mike Tannenbaum was the Jets' GM when Mosley was on the team from 2006-08. The Browns, Jaguars, Lions and Vikings have also been linked to Mosley.

Coach Joe Philbin says the Dolphins plan to "attack the middle of the field a little more" this season.

In sure-handed slot receiver Jarvis Landry and athletic specimen Jordan Cameron, the Dolphins have the weapons to do just that. Philbin noted Cameron offers a "bigger" catch radius than outgoing TE Charles Clay, who stood 6-foot-3, 245 to Cameron's 6-foot-5, 254. Cameron has impressed in OTAs and could see an uptick in early-season targets with DeVante Parker on the shelf.

Free agent DT C.J. Mosley visited the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Mosley was reportedly discussing a contract with the Lions late last week, but that report was shot down by ESPN's Josina Anderson. The soon-to-be 32-year-old had a productive season in Detroit last year, but was busted for having marijuana in his hotel room on the London trip and has yet to draw much interest.

DeVante Parker's timetable for a return from foot surgery is 8-12 weeks.

Parker's agent gave an eight-week prognosis, but ex-NFL team physician David Chao thinks 12 weeks is more realistic. If Parker does need the full three months to get back to 100 percent, he'll just be rounding into shape for Week 1. He'll be well behind Greg Jennings and Kenny Stills in their battle for outside reps. The good news is this procedure (replacing a smaller screw with a larger one in the fifth metatarsal) is not a long-term concern, as proven by the likes of Julio Jones and Demaryius Thomas.
Jun 9 - 8:24 AM

The Miami Herald expects Jarvis Landry to serve as Ryan Tannehill's "go-to guy, particularly in the early part of the season."

Landry isn't a favorite in the fantasy community due to athletic limitations and low yards per catch, but he's likely to be a 2015 target monster, especially after DeVante Parker's setback with his foot. A high-volume slot receiver, Landry averaged nine targets per game in the second half of last season. He's less desirable in standard leagues, but could push for WR2 value in PPR this year.
