Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 3/23/15 8:28pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's fifth-year option will be picked up if the team is not able to sign him to a contract extension over the next six weeks, according to sources. Tannehill would make $16 million in 2016 if his option is picked up. It is believed the Dolphins have talked about signing Tannehill to a six-year deal worth more than $100 million.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins have options with regards to keeping Tannehill in Miami, and the option year gives them additional time to negotiate a long-term deal as well. Now look for the Dolphins to add some weapons to Tannehill's arsenal.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 3/20/15 5:24pm ET
Free-agent QB Matt Moore (Dolphins) re-signed with the Miami Dolphins on Friday, March 20. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Moore will be back for his fifth season in Miami and his fourth backing up Ryan Tannehill. Moore, who started 12 games in 2011, has only attempted 29 passes over the last three seasons.
LaMichael James - RBPosted 3/20/15 5:24pm ET
Free-agent RB LaMichael James re-signed with the Miami Dolphins on a one-year deal Friday, March 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: James will be back in South Beach backing up Lamar Miller and Damien Williams but only has 49 offensive touches in three NFL seasons, including only five last season.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/19/15 12:26am ET
Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is expected to land with the Buffalo Bills after signing a five-year, $38 million offer sheet with Buffalo Tuesday, March 17, according to a source. The Dolphins have five days to match the offer sheet, but they aren't expected to. Clay is set to make $24.5 million in the first two years of the deal. The total deal is 'only for $38 million for five years. Miami's last offer to Clay was for four years and $27 million, including less than $14 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins moved on relatively quickly to Jordan Cameron, and the Bills bailed them out with an offer for Clay. No need for the five-day waiting period; bank on Clay officially becoming a Bill this weekend.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/19/15 2:09pm ET
Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay's five-year, $38 million offer sheet he signed with the Buffalo Bills will not be matched by the Dolphins, according to a source. Clay will now become a member of the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: While it's not officially official, it's most definitely looking like the Bills' reconfigured offense will feature Clay at TE, LeSean McCoy at RB and Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin as the top two WRs. Now about that QB position ...
Jordan Cameron - TEPosted 3/19/15 6:13pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron will be the team's go-to tight end now that they didn't bring back TE Charles Clay, who signed an offer sheet with the Buffalo Bills. Cameron made the Pro Bowl in 2013 and has more athleticism than Clay, but Cameron has also dealt with multiple concussions.
Huddle Up: Cameron will be counted on heavily in South Beach as Ryan Tannehill will be entering next season without four of his top five WRs/TEs in terms of 2014 receptions.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/17/15 9:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay signed an offer sheet from the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, March 17. According to the Buffalo News, it's a five-deal worth $38 million, with more than $20 million guaranteed. The Dolphins have five days to match the offer.
Huddle Up: As expected, the Bills have structured the deal to make it tough for their division rivals to match, especially with the big $$$ they just allotted to sign Ndamukong Suh. Miami, though, already has its TE fall-back plan in place with the signing of Jordan Cameron. Adding Clay, meanwhile, would make for quite an offseason of offensive upgrades for the Bills, who have traded for LeSean McCoy and signed WR Percy Harvin.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/15/15 5:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is not expected to return to the team, and the Dolphins expect him to sign with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Huddle Up: Buffalo also reportedly is close to a deal with WR Percy Harvin but has been unable to close the deal on either player so far. Still, the team didn't re-sign TE Scott Chandler and certainly needs a TE with Chis Gragg and Chris Manhertz currently topping the depth chart.
Jordan Cameron - TEPosted 3/15/15 5:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron said he does not believe the three concussions he suffered over the past three seasons will affect him moving forward. 'I've seen a lot of specialists and talked to a lot of people and it's cleared. My baseline is the same as it was six years ago. There's no cause for concern on my end for this, and the Dolphins felt the same,' Cameron said.
Huddle Up: Cameron and the Dolphins are banking on big rebound from his deeply disappointing 24-424-2 season in 10 games a year ago, and much depends on his health. Definitely a sleeper TE to track this summer.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/15/15 11:17pm ET
According to reports, Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is no longer in long-term contract talks with the team, and Miami is waiting on an offer sheet from the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins have signed free-agent Jordan Cameron but still would have to keep and pay Clay for next season if he somehow doesn't land another deal -- most notably this rumored impending offer from the Bills that everybody has seemingly been hearing about for weeks now.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/14/15 1:05am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has been traded to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a fifth-round draft choice, according a source. The Vikings will also receive a seventh-round draft choice.
Huddle Up: So it what it amounts to is a salary dump for the Dolphins, who received 140 catches for 1,792 yards and 15 TDs in two seasons out of Wallace. Going forward, though, it's shaping up as a strong WR corps for second-year QB Teddy Bridgewater as Wallace joins Greg Jennings, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/14/15 1:05am ET
Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay did not receive an offer from the Buffalo Bills on Friday, March 13, but the Bills will make an offer in the near future, according to a source.
Huddle Up: We've heard this for the last week or two it seems, but most of the signs are pointing in that direction with Dolphins signing Jordan Cameron on Thursday and former Buffalo TE signing with the Patriots on Friday.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/13/15 7:12pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has been placed on the trade block after the team acquired WR Kenny Stills in a trade.
Huddle Up: The Stills acquisition has certainly made Wallace expendable but the big hurdle, of course, remains his five-year, $60 million albatross of a deal which runs through 2017.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/11/15 9:36am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace indicated Tuesday, March 10, that he might be open to restructuring his deal. "Like I said I am willing to help out the team, but at the same time I'm not about to do nothing crazy either. I'll definitely help the team out, but it has to be reasonable - what I feel is reasonable," Wallace said.
Huddle Up: Perhaps Wallace has seen what is happening to the market for wide receivers--not to mention the strength of the incoming draft class of wideouts--and realizes he may be forced to take a pay cut or relocate.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/8/15 3:27pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Charles Clay is expected to receive a multi-year offer from the Buffalo Bills, according to a source. The Dolphins placed the transition tag on Clay and would have seven days to match the offer if he signs with the Bills.
Huddle Up: The four-year vet is guaranteed $7.1 million for 2015 under the transition tag, but a multi-year offer with more guaranteed money would certainly be more enticing to Clay and one that the Dolphins likely wouldn't be able to match given the team's reported impending signing of DT Ndamukong Suh. Clay caught 58 passes for 605 yards and three TDs last season and would be strong addition to the offensive makeover already underway in western N.Y.
Brian Hartline - WRPosted 3/5/15 3:41pm ET
Free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) is visiting with the Houston Texans on Thursday, March 5.
Huddle Up: Hartline is generating quite a bit of interest as he's already visited with the Browns and Bears, and now the Patriots and possibly the Colts are also interested. Meanwhile, the Dolphins reportedly would welcome the WR's return at a lower salary, but it appears they're at the back of the line.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/3/15 11:49am ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay has received the rarely-used transition tag. The transition tag for tight ends is worth $7.071 million.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins wanted to keep Clay -- amid rumors that the likes of the Bills and Broncos were interested -- but didn't want to use the franchise tag. Clay can still field free-agent offers, and the Dolphins have the right to match any deal, but if they don't, they won't receive any compensation. Still, t looks as if Clay will remain in South Beach for a fifth straight season coming off back-to-back years of 58-plus catches and 600-plus yards.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/3/15 4:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he cleared the air with WR Mike Wallace, and the two have no problem. Tannehill said he wants Wallace to return, and the team will consider Tannehill's input when they make their decision on Wallace.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins recently halted their salary-cap and pass-catching purge by applying the transition tag to TE Charles Clay, but endorsed by the QB or not, expect the team to do something with Wallace and his impending, team-most $12.1 million cap hit. Meanwhile, the WR has said he's not interested in a pay cut. Stay tuned ...
Brian Hartline - WRPosted 2/27/15 12:31pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline was released Friday, Feb. 27.
Huddle Up: After back-to-back 70-catch, 1,000-yard seasons in 2012-13, Hartline had a disappointing 39-474-2 campaign last fall and became a cap casualty. He still has No. 2 or 3 WR potential, though, and could return to decent numbers if he hooks up with the right team/passing game.
Brandon Gibson - WRPosted 2/27/15 8:05pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson was released Friday, Feb. 27.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are emptying the WR depth chart and clearing cap space, also waiving Brian Hartline on Friday. Gibson spent two mediocre, injury-marred two seasons in South Beach, starting eight games and catching 59 passes for 621 yards and four TDs. Gibson started the first five games in the slot last season before being bumped by rookie standout Jarvis Landry, who went on to lead the team in receiving with 84 grabs.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 2/26/15 1:54am ET
The Miami Dolphins do not plan to cut WR Mike Wallace just yet. They are exploring the trade route not just on Wallace's play, but also his fit in the locker room. He removed himself from the regular season finale, and had a shouting match with head coach Joe Philbin afterwards. Wallace is due $9.85 million in 2015, part of a five-year, $60 million deal that runs through 2017.
Huddle Up: It won't be easy to unload Wallace's contract, but the Dolphins would obviously prefer to get something out of their investment rather than simply kicking Wallace to the curb. It will be a test of the selling skills of Miami's front office to pull off a deal.
Rishard Matthews - WRPosted 2/25/15 10:49am ET
The Miami Dolphins would like to keep WR Rishard Matthews, who has a low cap number of just $673,403.
Huddle Up: The low cap number is nice, but Miami may want to keep Matthews around just so they have some experienced receiver insurance in case Mike Wallace checks out on them again.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 2/23/15 3:55pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Charles Clay is expected to receive at least $6 million per season in his next contract, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Bills are reportedly one of the teams interested in making Clay a big offer; looks like Clay's house will be the place to be camping out for early free agency activity.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 2/22/15 6:07pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Charles Clay is a player the Buffalo Bills are considering pursuing in free agency.
Huddle Up: Naturally, Clay seems to be on the radar screens of several of the Dolphins' divisional opponents (Buffalo & N.E.) and why not as he has the look of an up-and-comer who's already producing numbers than rank with the league's top TEs, standing sixth at his position with 127 total receptions over the last two seasons.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 2/15/15 9:11pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has already started working at a training facility in Arizona with New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. trying to improve his explosiveness. 'I had to beg him to take time off,' his agent said. 'He wants to show people he's an outside receiver, not just a slot receiver.'
Huddle Up: Among rookie wideouts, Landry finished second to his former LSU teammate with 84 receptions but the key will be improving his 9.02-yards-per-catch average, which ranked last among the 57 WRs who had 50 or more receptions last season.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 2/13/15 4:14pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill and his contract extension will be a big priority in the offseason, but the Dolphins plan to secure a solid backup quarterback in free agency. Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero speculates QB Matt Moore, who was the Dolphins' backup in 2014 and is an unrestricted free agent, may be the best option.
Huddle Up: Moore has been with the Dolphins the last four seasons, but has only attempted 29 passes since the end of the 2011 campaign, and he might want to test the market and see if he would be able to compete for a starting job elsewhere given the lackluster QB market.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 2/8/15 8:51pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace recently had a meal with general manager Dennis Hickey, but the team still is undecided about Wallace's future with the team, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Wallace's high-$ salary and end-of-season dispute with the coaches have Wallace's South Beach future very much in doubt, and restructured deal might be the only possible avenue for his return.
Knowshon Moreno - RBPosted 2/5/15 4:03pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is unlikely to be back in 2015, according to beat writer James Walker.
Huddle Up: Moreno opened the 2014 season as the Dolphins' starter but played in only three games and now is one of three impending free-agent backs on the Miami roster. Look for Miami to sign or draft another RB to back up starter Lamar Miller.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 1/25/15 1:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Charles Clay is a player that the Dolphins would like to re-sign and are expected to offer him a contract in the next few weeks.
Huddle Up: Clay is a productive, under-the-radar TE who fits Miami's system and a player the Dolphins shouldn't have to break the bank to re-sign . He had a career season with 69 catches for 759 yards and six TDs in 2013 but slipped to 58-605-3 this past year in an injury-hampered season.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 1/23/15 11:05pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said he wants to return to the team next season, but he added that he would welcome testing the free-agent market if the team chooses to release him.
Huddle Up: Wallace did match his career high with 10 TD receptions this past season but has finished below 13 yards per catch in each of his two seasons in South Beach and is yearning for more big plays. Wallace is guaranteed $3 million of his $9.9M 2015 salary if he's on the roster once the new league year begins in early March so the ball is squarely in the Dolphins' court.
