Dolphins quarterback Jake Rudock living at home with parents

There are plenty of Dolphins who should be renting rather than buying this season. But quarterback Jake Rudock is doing them one better — by living with his parents while he goes through his first offseason with his hometown team. Rudock told Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post that he’s staying at his parents’ [more]

If Cardinals trade Josh Rosen, what can they get?

A year ago, the Cardinals packaged their first-round pick, third-round pick and fifth-round pick to move up in the draft and get quarterback Josh Rosen. His rookie year did not go well. But could things get even worse by the Cardinals trading him for far, far less draft capital than they paid to get him? [more]

Minkah Fitzpatrick embracing versatile role in Dolphins secondary

Early in the offseason, defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick said that he wanted to know whether he’d be at cornerback or safety in 2019 because it would impact his conditioning work. While there’s been word that the Dolphins see Fitzpatrick as a safety for the long term, there hasn’t been a definitive answer about this season. [more]

For national attention, eight teams have low expectations or populations

If you get a lot of prime-time games, it’s usually because you’re good, interesting, or at least from a city with a lot of people. So it’s worth noting the teams on the other end of the spectrum, who are hidden away from public view. While the Bills are the only team shut out of [more]

Brandon Bolden back to Patriots, a year after they made him think he sucked

When the Patriots cut Brandon Bolden last year, he took it hard. Bolden says that when he got cut by Bill Belichick, he figured that if the NFL’s best coach didn’t want him, he must not be a very good player. “I learned a lot. I’m a lot stronger than I thought, because I just [more]

Dolphins need Charles Harris to deliver this year

As the Dolphins look to a future built on draft picks, it would help if they were getting production from some of the high picks already on the roster. Specifically, they need 2017 first-rounder Charles Harris to do more in his third season. With Cameron Wake, Robert Quinn, Andre Branch and William Hayes all gone, [more]

T.J. McDonald ready to play football wherever he is

The direction of the Dolphins’ organization has changed since last season. Thus, much of the roster has changed. Safety T.J. McDonald has remained. Now 28 and in his seventh NFL season, McDonald is one of the team leaders. He is not stressing about the team’s youth movement. “I play football,” McDonald said, via Omar Kelly [more]

Kalen Ballage plans to compete with Kenyan Drake for starting job

Kenyan Drake is the favorite to win the Dolphins’ starting running back job with the departure of Frank Gore, who started 14 games and led the team in rushing last season. But Kalen Ballage isn’t conceding the job. “I’m a competitor. That’s what I do; that’s who I am,” Ballage said, via quotes distributed by [more]

Mike Gesicki thinks he’s better positioned for success this season

The Dolphins took tight end Mike Gesicki in the second round with the hope that he’d be a threat as a receiver while working to improve his blocking skills. Gesicki didn’t make too big of an impression on either front. He caught 22 passes for 202 yards and showed that there was a lot of [more]

Dolphins picking up Laremy Tunsil’s fifth-year option

The Dolphins lost their starting right tackle in free agency, but their left tackle is at least another year away from the chance. According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are picking up the fifth-year option on Laremy Tunsil‘s rookie deal. The former first-rounder will make $10 million in 2020, an amount [more]

Bengals, Dolphins avoid short-week games

At one point, every NFL team had to play one game on a short week. This year, 30 teams will do that. Which means that (abacus engaged) two teams won’t. This year, those two teams are the Bengals and the Dolphins. It’s a good thing for these teams to avoid the short-week obligation. And it [more]

Monday Night Football slate kicks off with Texans and Saints

A pair of 2018 playoff teams will square off in the first Monday night game of the 2019 season. The NFL’s schedule was released on Wednesday night and it shows that the Texans will be in New Orleans to face the Saints on Monday Night Football in Week One. In addition to that game, the [more]

DeVante Parker excited about “fresh start” in Miami

Wide receiver DeVante Parker didn’t change teams this offseason, but he said on Wednesday that he does feel like he’s had a change of scenery. Parker’s lukewarm production over four seasons after being selected in the first round of the 2015 draft made him seem like a good bet to move on from the Dolphins, [more]

Chris Grier: Reshad Jones will be here this year

Dolphins safety Reshad Jones is not with the Dolphins at their voluntary minicamp this week, but the team isn’t planning for an extended absence. There’s been speculation about Jones’ possible departure from Miami this offseason, but General Manager Chris Grier said at a Wednesday press conference that the veteran won’t be wearing another uniform. “Reshad’s [more]

Kenyan Drake trying to put himself in “best position” for new contract

Kenyan Drake did not lead the Dolphins in carries during any of his first three seasons in Miami, but it looks like there’s a pretty good chance that changes this season. Frank Gore led the team in carries last year, but he left for Buffalo as a free agent and the team has not made [more]
