Dolphins G.M. has “more than enough” to move up in draft

The Dolphins made their own lives harder last season, by exceeding expectations to win five games.

Source: Dolphins would love to land Joe Burrow

The Dolphins didn’t make the playoffs at 5-11. They wouldn’t have made the playoffs if they’d gone 1-15, obviously.

Jim Caldwell won’t return to Dolphins

When Dolphins coach Brian Flores hired Jim Caldwell as his assistant head coach last year, it made all the sense in the world, a rookie head coach finding a veteran sounding board and accomplished offensive mind.

Miami Super Bowl features a couple of Dolphins-style quarterbacks

It’s fitting the Super Bowl LIV will be played in Miami.

Raheem Mostert: “Look where I’m at now”

Over the next two weeks, you’ll hear plenty about the way Raheem Mostert was cut by six teams in an 18-month span.

Ryan Tannehill: My stats have improved, but I haven’t changed as a player

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill wasn’t supposed to be starting in the AFC Championship Game. A year ago, the Dolphins were done with him, and when the Titans traded for him, it was to be a backup.
