Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/27/15 11:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill praised his largely rebuilt wide receivers corps Tuesday, May 26, saying this is the most athletic group he has worked with in the NFL. He also praised them for being natural hands-catchers.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins not only rewarded Tannehill with a fat new contract, they also revamped his receiving corps--apparently to Tannehill's liking. It's another reason to be excited about Tannehill's fantasy potential heading into the 2015 season.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/27/15 11:27pm ET
Miami Dolphins rookie WR DeVante Parker has already gained the attention of QB Ryan Tannehill. 'He's a good player. You can see his athleticism, his natural ability, already,' Tannehill said. 'He made a bunch of good catches [Tuesday] -- catches where he's using his body, keeping the defender off of him. He catches the ball with his hands.'
Huddle Up: There's no reason to think Parker won't be a Week One starter for the Dolphins, and the fact that he's already impressing his quarterback only helps his fantasy prospects.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 5/26/15 1:36am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is considered the No. 2 running back at this point and could potentially challenge RB Lamar Miller for the starting running back position.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has the talent to be Miami's every-down back; the concern is whether his knees can hold up. At minimum he'll push Miller, who the Dolphins are far from committed to.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/19/15 1:29am ET
Clarifying a previous story, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's new deal includes four new contract years and up to $77 million in new money. The deal is worth $95.27 million over six total years, with options for 2015 and 2016 added in.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins overhauled their offensive line last year and revamped their receiving corps this season. Now they've locked up Tannehill for the next five years with a significant investment. Clearly the team believes in him, which makes it a whole lot easier for fantasy owners to do the same.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/10/15 6:59pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is the type of receiver the offense has been lacking, according to former WR O.J. McDuffie. 'We don't have anybody that will go attack the football, nobody to go get it,' McDuffie said. 'On 50-50 balls, he's got to be the guy right at the beginning of the season that, covered or uncovered, he's got to go up and get that ball at its high point. Right away he's got to be in the mix.'
Huddle Up: Parker was limited last season to his foot injury at Louisville, but the first-round pick has the size (6-3, 210) and speed combo at WR that the Dolphins have lacked in a while. And while second-year Jarvis Landry, should remain Ryan Tannehill's top target, there's no reason to think Parker can't become the the Dolphins' top big-play producer.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/10/15 11:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi said he feels great and there is nothing wrong with his knee. Head coach Joe Philbin said Ajayi will be given opportunities to prove his value to the team during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: The door is clearly open for the fifth-round pick to assume the No. 2 change-of-pace role behind starter Lamar Miller. If he can, the rookie will be among the more intriguing RB4/5 options as he'll be in line for ample touches and likely a strong share of the goal-line work.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 5/8/15 7:34pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is expected to be the No. 1 back heading into the 2015 season, according to The Miami Herald.
Huddle Up: There's been a lot of hype surrounding the steal the Dolphins got in landing Jay Ajayi in the fifth round, but Miller is coming off easily his best season (1,374 total yards, 9 TDs) in his three years as a pro and it will take a Miller injury quite a camp by the Boise State rookie or another back to wrest even a sizable share of the workload away from the incumbent lead dog.
Rishard Matthews - WRPosted 5/7/15 10:43pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews is not participating in offseason workouts and is hoping to be released or traded, according to sources. It is not known if Matthews will report for mandatory minicamp next month.
Huddle Up: Matthews fell from 41-448-2 in 2013 to 12-135-2 this past season and seems to be on the back burner again with the Dolphins clearing out three WRs (Brian Hartline, Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson) and replacing them with three more in Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and first-round pick DeVante Parker. A change of scenery definitely would appear to be in Matthews' best interests -- preferably joining a team that needs help in the slot.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/6/15 12:14am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker could start in his rookie season, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Kelly has Parker behind WR Jarvis Landry and ahead of WR Kenny Stills.
Huddle Up: No offense to Mr. Kelly, but we kinda think that was the intention with the WR-depleted Dolphins spending a first-round pick on Parker.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/3/15 4:01pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) may have a potential bone on bone issue that may have contributed to his falling down some teams' draft boards.
Huddle Up: Ajayi lasted until the fifth round, but now he'll have the chance to show he's healthy, and if he can, he has more than a decent chance of winning the Dolphins' No. 2 RB gig behind Lamar Miller.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 4/30/15 12:11am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill had his fifth-year option picked up Wednesday, April 29, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. The option is worth $16 million for 2016 and is fully guaranteed only in the event of an injury. The Dolphins plan to work out a long-term deal prior to the season opener.
Huddle Up: With the deadline approaching, time for teams to lock down their fifth-year first-rounders--assuming they're happy with their body of work to date. And the Dolphins are clearly happy with Tannehill.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 4/30/15 10:45pm ET
Louisville WR DeVante Parker was selected 14th overall by the Miami Dolphins in the 2015 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 30.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins had their choice of top WRs with Parker and Breshad Perriman both still on the board at No. 14, and they went with the athletic Parker, who missed half of this past season with a foot injury. In all, a necessary move to benefit still-developing QB Ryan Tannehill after losing TE Charles Clay and WRs Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson earlier this offseason.
Dion Jordan - DEPosted 4/28/15 4:09pm ET
Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan will be suspended for the entire 2015 season for another substance abuse policy violation, according to league sources. Jordan will not appeal the suspension.
Huddle Up: This will be the third suspension for Jordan in the last year and will likely spell the end of the troubled Miami career of the 2013 third-overall pick who has made one start and notched three sacks in two seasons.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 4/28/15 11:00pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's fifth-year option has yet to be picked up. The deadline for the option to be picked up is Sunday, May 3. 'Look, Ryan is here, we're excited he is here, we haven't made any decisions yet,' vice president Mike Tannenbaum said. 'We know when the deadline is, and we'll make those decisions when we get there. The fifth-year option for 2016 is worth about $15 million.
Huddle Up: Given the QB's steady improvement over his three seasons -- going from 76.1 rating to an 81.7 to 92.8 this past year -- and the general lack of solid QB options, it would be surprising if the 'Fins don't buy themselves an extra season and pick up the QB's option.
Dion Jordan - DEPosted 4/24/15 8:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan did not receive a vote of confidence from any of the front office people during their pre-draft press conference Friday, April 24. Jordan did not participate in voluntary workouts earlier in the week.
Huddle Up: Jordan, the third overall pick in the draft two years ago, has been a big-time bust so far with all of one start, 46 tackles and three sacks in a suspension and injury-marred two-year career, and his days in South Beach are numbered unless he soon starts trending in the opposite direction.
Greg Jennings - WRPosted 4/23/15 11:43am ET
Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) signed an undisclosed deal with the Miami Dolphins late Wednesday, April 22.
Huddle Up: The 31-year-old Jennings gives the Ryan Tannehill the veteran wideout he needed to along with relative youngsters Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. Jennings' fantasy stock gets a bump as he's in better position for his first 70-catch and/or 1,000-yard season since 2010 with the Packers.
Jordan Cameron - TEPosted 4/4/15 1:58pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron has a per game bonus of $156,250 in his contract in 2015 and 2106, and $9.5 million of his $15 million contract will count against the cap in 2016.
Huddle Up: That's one way to hedge your bets against a player who missed six games last season and has played an average of 11 games per season over his four-year NFL career while never playing a full 16-game slate.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 4/2/15 12:41pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller says he is up to 225 pounds from his playing weight of 218 pounds last season.
Huddle Up: With 1,374 yards from scrimmage and nine rushing and receiving scores last season, Miller easily topped the totals from his first two seasons combined, and while it seems sensible for the RB to add a little extra bulk now that he's being counted on as man in Miami, he has to be careful not to take away from his valuable quickness.
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.
