  Miami Dolphins - Priority News
  News Statistics Roster  
Mike Pouncey - C Posted 7/23/14 2:25pm et
Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) could miss the first eight weeks of the season because of the hip surgery he had this offseason, according to a source. He will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of training camp and could stay on the PUP list when the regular season begins.
Huddle Up: Pouncey's absence certainly throws a monkey wrench into the Dolphins' plans, as they had hoped to rebuild their offensive line around Pouncey in the wake of last season's issues. Now they'll start from scratch and hope Pouncey can move quickly into the lineup once he's healthy. In the meantime, fantasy owners should put their raised expectations for Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace on hold.

Dion Jordan - DE Posted 7/4/14 12:51am et
Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating the policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Huddle Up: Coming off a deeply disappointing 2-sack, 26-total tackle rookie season, the third overall pick of the 2013 draft is drifting dangerously close to big-time bust waters, but don't look for the Dolphins to make any drastic decisions just yet, primarily because they would have to deal with $7.9 million in dead money on their salary cap if they were to cut the former Oregon standout.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 6/24/14 10:26am et
Miami Dolphins RB knowshon Moreno (knee) will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery this week, according to sources. Moreno is expected to miss four to five weeks.
Huddle Up: Maybe Moreno's knee injury prevented him from working out this offseason; maybe the extra weight he carried into OTAs put more pressure than usual on the joint. Either way, he'll miss a month of learning his new team's offense and find it that much more difficult to crack the Dolphins' lineup come training camp.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 6/24/14 4:14pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has the highest base salary of any non-quarterback in 2014, earning $15.0 million. He will count $17.25 million against the Dolphins' salary cap and would cost the team $26.8 million in dead money should they choose to release him during the fiscal year.
Huddle Up: Mind boggling numbers for a wideout who posted career season lows with his 12.7 yards-per-catch average and his 5 TD receptions last season.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 6/19/14 2:11am et
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno spent most of his time in practice Wednesday, June 18, either holding his helmet or working on the side with a trainer. RBs Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee have been taking nearly all of the first-team snaps in offseason workouts, but Moreno isn't worried about his status. 'We're all pushing each other,' Moreno said. 'I'm working on the little things and competing. Everything will take care of itself. I just want to do what I have to do to help my team win.'
Huddle Up: Moreno reportedly showed up to OTAs in something other than tip-top condition, which isn't necessarily the way to impress your new team. And while he may not be worried, anyone banking on him to put up numbers remotely close to what he posted in Denver certainly has to be.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 6/19/14 8:16pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (undisclosed) is fighting a medical issue during minicamp this week, according to a source. The source said Moreno has been dealing with the undisclosed injury for a couple of weeks and needed time off to recover. Moreno has barely been involved in 7-on-7 and team drills during last week's organized team activities and this week's mandatory minicamp. He's spent the time working behind RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, and even RBs Mike Gillislee and Damien Williams have seen more repetitions than Moreno.
Huddle Up: It's been anything but a good start to Moreno's Miami tenure, but the good news is there's still a couple months for the RB to turn things around and make a move back up the depth chart.

Rishard Matthews - WR Posted 6/15/14 4:17pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 3 wide receiver job at this point but will have to compete with WRs Jarvis Landry and Brandon Gibson for the job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Matthews came on during the second half of 2013, but keep in mind that was after Gibson had been lost for the season with a knee injury. The Dolphins also used a second-round pick on Landry last month, so it'll definitely be an interesting training-camp battle to watch.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 6/11/14 11:51pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno indicated he understands that his conditioning is not what he wants it to be at this point but expects to be ready for the start of training camp. 'I'm definitely not there,' Moreno said. 'This is just the beginning. It's just the beginning, getting your feet wet, and when you have time off, working at those little things, getting back to where you need to be, and once camp comes, it'll be good.' Moreno is expected to get a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Maybe not the best idea to show up for your new team out of shape, but Moreno has time to improve his conditioning and outduel Lamar Miller for the lead role in Miami's backfield.

Lamar Miller - RB Posted 6/5/14 7:48pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has been taking a lot of the first- team reps during offseason workouts, with RB Knowshon Moreno working mostly with the second-team offense. Head coach Joe Philbin indicated Moreno's conditioning should be better.
Huddle Up: Miller had 137 fewer fantasy points than Moreno in 2013, but it sounds like Moreno didn't exactly report to OTAs prepared. It's still way too early, though, to make any sort of definitive calls here, however.

Marcus Thigpen - RB Posted 6/3/14 11:30pm et
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins RB Marcus Thigpen has been moved to wide receiver.
Huddle Up: Thigpen has mainly been used as a kick returner his first 2 season while recording only 16 total touches (7 rushes, 9 receptions) on offense. He'll face an uphill battle to catch on at WR with the Fins spending their 2nd-round pick on Jarvis Landry and adding free-agent Damian Williams.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 6/2/14 11:58pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno continued to work with the second-team offense during organized team activities Monday, June 2. Head coach Joe Philbin said Moreno's conditioning could be better.
Huddle Up: So the Dolphins' big free agent running back showed up for OTAs out of shape? That's not the way to win a job... or to change the minds of fantasy owners who already are predicting a dropoff in numbers posted on Peyton Manning's coattails in Denver last year.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 6/2/14 11:59pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has been lining up at different positions during organized team activities in an effort to get him open and be less predictable.
Huddle Up: Moving Wallace around could help the Dolphins get more out of their big-ticket receiver, though ultimately Wallace's best route from wherever he lines up is the deep ball--something defenses are most certainly aware of.

Dion Jordan - DE Posted 5/28/14 12:29am et
Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said the team considered moving DE Dion Jordan to outside linebacker this year but decided against it. Jordan has now bulked up in the offseason in order to be more effective as a pass rusher.
Huddle Up: Wherever he plays at whatever weight, the Dolphins are expecting a much-improved season out of the 2013 third-overall pick, who only had 2 sacks and 26 total tackles as a rookie.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 5/27/14 8:55pm et
Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said WR Mike Wallace looks and feels more comfortable in his second year with the team.
Huddle Up: Wallace owners will be banking on a bounce-back year after he finished 25th among all fantasy wideouts last season with 126 points.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 5/27/14 9:01pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is looking sharp in the team's first day of organized team activities Tuesday, May 27.
Huddle Up: Moreno is tentatively pencilled in atop the Dolphins' depth chart and should lead the team's RBs in touches, but just don't go expecting a repeat of his breakout 2013 season in which he finished fifth among all fantasy backs with 237 points.

Billy Turner - OT Posted 5/17/14 12:47pm et
The Miami Dolphins have been using OT Billy Turner at left guard and right guard during workouts. The team hopes Turner will be able to develop into a starter right away.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins' offensive line needs a ton of help, so it only makes sense for them to want to fast-track the talented Turner into an open role. Turner played guard at the Senior Bowl after playing tackle in college, and it appears the Dolphins concur with the general predraft feeling that he's better suited to be a guard at the NFL level.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 5/5/14 12:11am et
Some of the Miami Dolphins players believe some of the coaches are not big fans of WR Mike Wallace.
Huddle Up: So far it's been a rough year-plus in Miami for Wallace, who caught a career-high 73 passes this past season but hit career lows in yards-per-catch (12.7) and TD catches (3). The speedy WR must show he's more than a one-trick -- i.e. deep go-route -- wideout.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 4/23/14 12:23pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said the team's new offensive system fits his big-play style.
Huddle Up: It's true that Mike Sherman's WCO approach wasn't particularly Wallace-friendly. And while Bill Lazor isn't expected to overhaul the Dolphins' attack, his success with Nick Foles and DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia last season certainly bodes well for Miami's Ryan Tannehill-to-Wallace connection.

Brandon Gibson - WR Posted 4/20/14 4:36pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (knee) is expected to be available for the start of the offseason program, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gibson, was on pace for a career year this past season 30 catches for 326 yards and 3 TDs in 7 games, and figures to be the front-runner for the Fins' slot/No. 3 WR job if he's healthy.

Brian Hartline - WR Posted 4/20/14 4:53pm et
The Miami Dolphins may let WR Brian Hartline walk following the 2014 season if the team succeeds in drafting a receiver in the second round. Releasing Hartline would save the team $4 million.
Huddle Up: There's still obviously still much to be determined about the future of Hartline, who's caught at least 70 passes and eclipsed 1,000 yards in each of the past 2 seasons. Let's see how the draft and season play out.

Michael Egnew - TE Posted 4/20/14 10:29pm et
The Miami Dolphins likely will add at least two more tight ends this offseason that will compete with TE Michael Egnew for a roster spot.
Huddle Up: Egnew, a third-round pick in 2012, has been virtually non-existent in the passing game, totalling only 7 receptions for 69 yards in 17 career games. Yeah, it's safe to say he's going to have to show a little more this offseason to a earn a third year on the roster.

Brandon Gibson - WR Posted 4/19/14 10:12pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (knee) said he expects to be ready to go for Week 1 of the NFL season.
Huddle Up: Gibson was an under-the-radar fantasy contributor when healthy last season, so if he's good to go for the start of the season he's a guy who can be looked to for spot start/bye week duty.

Dion Jordan - DE Posted 4/15/14 10:19pm et
Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey is expecting big things from DE Dion Jordan in his second season this year. "He's a very talented player, and this is a big offseason for him," Hickey said. "Last year with his shoulder he didn't have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That's so important. Developing and getting your body -- not just the physical reps but the mental reps -- getting in the weight room and all those things is such an important part to get these guys ready to make that jump."
Huddle Up: The third-overall pick had to deal with a preseason shoulder injury and never found a groove, recording only 2 sacks and accounting for 26 total tackles as a rookie. From there, the only place to go is up.

Damian Williams - WR Posted 4/10/14 11:11pm et
The Miami Dolphins have signed free-agent WR Damian Williams (Titans) to a one-year deal worth $800,000.
Huddle Up: Williams, a 2010 3rd-round pick of the Titans, has seen his numbers steadily decrease since his 45-592-5 season in 2011, and will be battling for targets with backups Brandon Gibson and Armon Binns behind base starters Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.

Dion Jordan - DE Posted 4/10/14 11:11pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly made a play to trade for Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan roughly two months ago, according to a respected league source. The Eagles are believed to have offered a second-round pick and LB Brandon Graham for Jordan. The Eagles would have picked up the remainder of Jordan's 4-year, $20.572 million deal.
Huddle Up: No surprise that Chip Kelly has tried to deal for his former Oregon standout, but the Dolphins obviously want to give the 2013 third-overall pick a chance to flourish after his disappointing 2-sack, 24 total-tackle rookie-year showing.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 4/2/14 1:10am et
The Miami Dolphins, privately, have vehemently denied a report that they are shopping WR Mike Wallace. Meanwhile, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has been throwing to receivers for more than two weeks, but Wallace has been out of town. Wallace has said previously that at some point this offseason, he and Tannehill need to work on their deep-ball chemistry.
Huddle Up: Wallace did hit a career high in receptions with 73 last season, but his yards-per-catch average (12.7) and TD total (5) were career lows. Look for those latter numbers to rebound, especially if Tannehill is afforded more time to throw deep after being sacked an NFL-high 58 times in 2013 -- 10 times more than any other QB.

Mike Rios - WR Posted 4/2/14 5:45pm et
The Miami Dolphins signed WR Mike Rios (Cardinals) Wednesday, April 2. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: No reason to think Rios is anything more than a depth guy in Miami.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 3/27/14 6:03pm et
The Miami Dolphins on Thursday, march 27 agreed to terms with RB Knowshon Moreno on a 1-year, $3 million contract.
Huddle Up: Moreno hit career highs with 1,586 yards scrimmage and 13 total TDs last season and now joins a suddenly crowded Miami backfield with Lamar Miller (879 total yards, 2 TDs) and Daniel Thomas (469, 2 TDs).

Brian Hartline - WR Posted 3/24/14 10:27pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (knee) is making good progress in his recovery from a torn posterior cruciate ligament and should be ready to play Week 1.
Huddle Up: Hartline should return in plenty of time to have that one monster week when he's not even on a fantasy roster, then be a hot pickup and do almost nothing until getting kicked back into the free agent pool a month or so later.

Mike Pouncey - C Posted 2/16/14 6:38pm et
The Miami Dolphins could start the 2014 season with an entire new offensive line, in the opinion of of Miami Herald beat reporter Adam Beasley. Beasley believes OGs John Jerry and Richie Incognito will not return to the team, and C Mike Pouncey could be suspended for his role in the bullying scandal.
Huddle Up: We've probably only seen the tip of the iceberg in terms of the looming personnel changes in South Beach. Stay tuned . . .
