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.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/22/15 10:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey had praise for QB Ryan Tannehill, saying the team is 'excited' about his progress to date. "We are excited about [Tannehill's] future as a Dolphin. ... We saw a lot of progress [in 2014]," Hickey said.
Huddle Up: Even though the Dolphins have essentially remained a .500 team, Tannehill has shown steady improvement in each of his three seasons, hitting career highs across the board this year and Hickey has a right to be excited given some of the QB issues faced by some of the league's other teams, including two in their own division.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 1/12/15 5:58pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has reportedly quit on the team multiple times this season. He told his position coach before halftime of the season finale, and later repeated it to his head coach, that if he wasn't getting the football thrown to him, there was no need for him to play. He allegedly did the same thing in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are believed to be weighing their options with regards to Wallace. Does his considerable talent outweigh his belly-aching? Is the plan going forward to throw enough to make him happy, will they kow-tow to his complaining, or will they proceed with a run-first offense and kick Wallace to the curb? Decisions, decisions for the Dolphins.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 1/11/15 3:12pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace is not willing to accept a pay cut this offseason, according to a source. Wallace is scheduled to count $12.1 million against the salary cap in 2015.
Huddle Up: Wallace's catches (72-67) and receiving yards (972-862) were down from 2013, but he did double his TD catches (10-5) while still averaging fewer (12.9) than 13 yards per catch. With the emergence of rookie WR Jarvis Landry, Wallace's attitude/benching incident in the regular-season finale and his price tag might lead the Dolphins to go in another direction.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 1/10/15 10:30am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace's roster spot could be in jeopardy next season, because he is scheduled to make $9.9 million in 2015 with $3 million of the salary becoming guaranteed in the first week of March. Executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said the team will make the most responsible decision for them on Wallace.
Huddle Up: The $3 million guarantee when the league calendar rolls over does expedite the decision-making process for the Dolphins. On the bright side, fantasy owners should know sooner rather than later where Wallace will be plying his trade in 2015 and can adjust their rankings accordingly.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/30/14 1:45am ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace denied the report that he took himself out of the game Sunday, Dec. 28, in Week 17. Wallace said he was told he wasn't going back in for the second half. Wallace said he'd like to remain with the team, but it isn't his decision. He denied any potential rift with the coaching staff. 'I like my coach,' Wallace said. 'They go about their business the right way. They create a good game plan.'
Huddle Up: There might be more layers to this story; we'll see how they unwrap over the course of the offseason. Wallace looked to be establishing himself as a top target for the emerging Ryan Tannehill, but after this kerfuffle there may be changes in store for the Dolphins' offense.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/29/14 9:24am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace came off the field with 2:49 left in the second quarter of the Dolphins' Week 17 game versus the New York Jets and told Miami head coach Joe Philbin that he did not want to play in the game. He was not benched, according to team sources.
Huddle Up: Interesting approach, one that needs further explanation from Wallace as perhaps he was suffering from an illness or suffered an undisclosed injury. His early exit certainly won't endear him to fantasy owners banking on a big outing against a Jets' secondary that had been awful all season heading into the season finale.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 12/29/14 9:24am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill threw for 259 yards in Week 17 versus the New York Jets, giving him 4,045 for the season. Only QB Dan Marino has thrown for 4,000 yards or more as a member of the Dolphins. Tannehill finished with 27 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions in his third NFL season.
Huddle Up: Tannehill continues to improve, and while it was a process he eventually took to Miami's new offense--with obvious results. He likely won't open next season with five completely new offensive linemen, Jarvis Landry will have a year of experience under his belt... there's much to like about the Dolphins' offensive situation going forward.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 12/26/14 4:45pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Clay, who's been hot with 12 catches for 173 yards over the last two games, should play, but his fantasy owners will definitely need to check the pre-game status reports Sunday to be certain.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 12/21/14 9:15pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry had eight receptions for 31 yards in the Week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He broke Terry Kirby's team record for receptions by a rookie with 79.
Huddle Up: Landry has been a reception monster this year, despite not being used much during the first month of the season. He'll be a highly sought after receiver in PPR leagues next year.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 12/12/14 10:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Clay is expected to play against New England but he won't be 100 percent. He's a TE2 option this week.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 12/10/14 9:12pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expressed frustration that his client is not being used enough in the offense. Miller has been receiving 10 to 12 carries per game, yet he's averaging 4.8 yards per carry this year. Miller's 12.4 carries per game ranks him 16th in the league. Also, the Dolphins have run the ball fewer than the previous game for three straight weeks now.
Huddle Up: Rosenhaus has a right to be upset. For some reason the Dolphins coaching staff refuses to let Miller be the team's feature back. This has been the case for two years now, despite the fact that Miller has proven to be the most talented runner on the team. Miller remains a RB2 for fantasy purposes but he's being held back by poor coaching.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 12/5/14 6:43pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is questionable for Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Clay has missed the last 2 games and his status remains an enigma. Hopefully, though, his owners already have a usable fill-in option in place if he's ruled out again Sunday morning.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 12/2/14 1:13am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry had eight catches on 11 targets for 68 yards in the team's 16-13 win over the New York Jets Monday, Dec. 1. It was the third time in his last four games that he has seen at least 10 targets.
Huddle Up: In case you haven't noticed, the rookie has taken over the team-receptions lead from Mike Wallace and isn't looking back, making him a strong postseason starting candidate in PPR leagues.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 12/1/14 7:59pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 13 game.
Huddle Up: No real surprise here since Clay was listed as doubtful. Backup Dion Sims will get another start at tight end.
Brian Hartline - WRPosted 12/1/14 10:32pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (knee) suffered a knee injury in the team's Week 13 game Monday, Dec. 1, and will not return.
Huddle Up: Hartline left in the first half after catching one pass for 9 yards. That'll mean more targets for fellow WRs Mike Wallace, Jarvis Landry and Brandon Gibson.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 11/29/14 8:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) didn't practice Saturday, Nov. 29, and is doubtful for Monday Night Football in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Clay is going to miss his second straight game. Dion Sims will start against the Jets. He had four catches for 31 yards filling in for Clay last week.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 11/29/14 8:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) practiced in full all week, and he's probable for Monday Night Football in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Miller will start and handle the bulk of the carries against the Jets. The Jets defense has been tough against the run this season but will be without Muhammad Wilkerson on Monday night.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 11/28/14 5:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee, hamstring) did not practice Friday, Nov. 28, and could miss Monday night's game versus the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Not a good sign at all after Clay was at least able to put in some limited work Thursday. If he can't go, Dion Sims will again be the team's primary pass-catching TE option.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 11/26/14 6:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee, hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Encouraging to see Clay out there in the first practice of the week after sitting out Week 12, but you're going to need to monitor his progress the next few days as well.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 11/21/14 6:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Miller has been nursing a sore shoulder for the last three weeks, but he also recently suffered a knee injury in practice. RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will likely share the workload if Miller sits out. RB LaMichael James could also be activated for the first time this year.
Huddle Up: It looks like Miller's owners are facing a dreaded late-afternoon game-time decision Sunday so make plans now.
