Position Listing
Greg Jennings
News
Dolphins wide receiver Greg Jennings has been on the team for less than 24 hours and he already has a preference on where he would like to line up, reports the Palm Beach Post.

"I'd love to go outside," Jennings said. "Coach [Joe] Philbin knows what I can do outside."

Jennings signed a contract with the Dolphins on Thursday and he said his previous relationship with coach Joe Philbin was a big factor in his decision.

"He played a big role," Jennings said."Joe and I talk frequently whether over the phone, via text. I kept him up to date. I know what kind of a man he is, the morals and values he possesses and he instills within his own guys and himself."

Jennings is heading into his 10th season and said he still has plenty of production left.

"As much as I need," he said.

Don Jones
News
The Dolphins enter Week 17 against the Jets relatively healthy, with only three players listed as questionable and nine players listed as probable.

Linebacker Jelani Jenkins (foot), defensive end Derrick Shelby (ankle) and tackle Dallas Thomas (foot) were labeled as questionable. Tight end Charles Clay (hamstring, knee), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle, knee), linebacker Jonathan Freeny (hamstring), safety Don Jones (shoulder), linebacker Koa Misi (hamstring, knee), defensive tackle Earl Mitchell (back), defensive tackle Jared Odrick (ankle), running back Daniel Thomas (knee) and wide receiver Mike Wallace (back) were all deemed probable.

Branden Albert
News
Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey has expressed optimism that left tackle Branden Albert will be ready to roll by the regular season opener.

Albert has been rehabbing from a torn ACL and MCL sustained last November against Detroit. He had signed a five-year, $46 million contract the previous March and had been performing particularly well before going down.

"It's been a long rehab and he's really attacked it every day," Hickey told SiriusXM NFL Radio, adding that there was a "reasonable explanation" that he would be ready for Week 1. "We really like his progress. He's out there with his team working out. We're really encouraged by what we're seeing with him."

Ja'Wuan Williams was forced to move to left tackle following the Albert injury in 2014. But he struggled at that position and is expected to move to his more familiar right tackle spot this year.

Nate Garner
News
The Dolphins released offensive lineman Nate Garner, who started 19 games over the past six seasons with Miami, reports the South Florida Sun Sentinel. The move cleared $1.65 million in cap space.
Koa Misi
News
Dolphins Inside linebacker Koa Misi and defensive end Dion Jordan will remain at their respective positions for the time being, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Head coach Joe Philbin talked about Misi's ankle injury and how it affected his play last season. But the coach also likes what that have in Misi.

"We like the way he plays defensive football. We think he plays fast, physical and tough," Philbin said of Misi.

Jordan, the team's first overall draft choice in 2013, will stay at defensive end for now, as the team still believes he can get after the passer from the position.

"We want to get his training there [on the line] to improve so he can continually develop his pass rushing ability. If we play him at linebacker, move him there full time when is he going to practice rushing the passer?" Philbin reasoned. "That doesn't mean he'll never cover a tight end again. But that's kind of where we are right now."

Brandon Fields
News
Dolphins punter Brandon Fields has agreed on a restructured contract to remain with the team, reports the Palm Beach Post.

Fields was a candidate to be released if he was unwilling to restructure his contract. Terms of the deal have not been released.

Josh Freeman
News
Newly acquired Dolphins quarterback Josh Freeman told reporters in a phone conference that a year away from football left him hungry, "wanting to get back in the swing of things," according to the Miami Herald.

Freeman, a former first-round selection, was benched by the Bucs in 2013 and traded to the Vikings. The 27-year-old played one game for the Vikings and failed to latch onto another team in 2014.

"I learned a lot," Freeman said. "I mean, how much time do you have? The NFL is constantly shifting with players, coaches, organizations. There's a lot that goes into the product you guys see on Sundays. I've spent time watching quarterbacks, watching the process, trying to formulate a plan that will allow me to be as good as possible.

"I learned that regardless of how things end up and turn out, if I give it everything I got, there are no questions, no doubts in my mind. It's not an uncommon thing for guys to get cut and be out of the league. But it's not how I see myself. It's not how I see myself in the future."

Jamil Douglas
News
Simply landing a roster spot for rookie guard and fourth-round pick Jamil Douglas is not good enough in his view. He wants to start immediately for the Dolphins. And that's never easy for any player selected in the middle of the draft.

Since Joe Philbin took over the reins four years ago, only quarterback Ryan Tannehill and offensive tackles Jonathan Martin and Ja'Wuan James have started in Week 1 as rookies. None were picked lower than the second round. But Douglas remains eager and undeterred.

"There's definitely a sense of urgency," he told ESPN. "...I want to contribute to this team as much as possible and help this team win games."

Douglas was a full-time starter at Arizona State in each of his last three seasons.

Ndamukong Suh
News
The Dolphins made Ndamukong Suh the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history when they signed him to a six-year, $114 million contract with $60 million guaranteed.

Now they want him to earn it. And he has been made aware of that.

"I challenged Ndamukong," said vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum on 640 AM. "I talked to him. We have a lot of young players not only on the defensive line but on our team. If we were sitting here in 10 years and Jordan Phillips is talking about hopefully the career he is having, I'd love for him to say that in his formative years Ndamukong Suh impacted him.

"A lot of resources are going to Ndamukong. We're not hiding that. In a cap system players who take up a big part of your cap have to do more than just play well."

Suh has already raised a few eyebrows by his absence. He showed up for the first day of voluntary workouts but has been away from the team since, claiming he has opted to work with his personal trainer. But fellow Dolphins lineman A.J. Francis isn't complaining.

"He's the best d-lineman in the league so if we wants to train somewhere else that's his prerogative," Francis said. "And nobody can tell him otherwise."

Lamar Miller
News
Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno played in just three games last season due to an elbow injury and a torn ACL. ESPN.com expects Miami to "find a power back who is more durable" to complement starter Lamar Miller in 2015.

Moreno, 27, is scheduled to hit free agency. He played well when he was healthy, rushing 31 times for 148 yards (4.8 ypc) and a touchdown.

Jarvis Landry
News
Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry was one of the few bright spots during Sunday's 41-13 loss to the Patriots in Week 15.

Landry was held out of the end zone for the third straight game, but nearly cracked the century mark. He caught eight of his 11 targets for 99 yards, averaging 12.4 yards per grab. He has 71 receptions for 672 yards and five touchdowns on the year.

Miami will host the Vikings in Week 16.

Jordan Cameron
News
Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is excited about the overhaul of the receiving corps, notably the additions of tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Kenny Stills, according to the team's official website.

Philbin started off by complimenting Cameron.

“I would say the one thing that (Cameron brings)?would be big skill if I can just throw out that term,”?Philbin said. “He’s a little bit bigger than the tight ends we’ve had. He still runs very very well. I think that’s maybe a little bit of a different dimension. I think the down the middle of the field potentially you might see us attack the middle of the field a hair more. We’re excited about him.” 

The head coach went on to talk about how Stills fit into the Dolphins' offense.

“We thought he was a really good scheme fit in our offense,”?Philbin said. “I thought he had good production. A couple of things that stood out, we kind of a did a study of receivers in the league that had at least 50 catches and one of the things we liked about him, I think he was targeted about 84 times and I think he had 63 receptions. So he was second, I believe, in the league in terms of, if you throw him the ball, he’s going to catch it. We liked the fact that, when the quarterbacks threw him the ball, a high percentage of the time there were completed passes. That was one thing. We thought he was productive on third down. Statistically, conversions on third down. He fit what we do. I thought he’s a good route runner. He has good hands. His speed is good. I thought schematically he was a good fit.” 

Jacques McClendon
News
The Dolphins have reportedly signed offensive lineman Jacques McClendon, according to the Sun Sentinel.

McClendon played the most games of his career in 2014, playing in 13 games. He's played a total of 22 games, with five starts in six seasons.

Olivier Vernon
News
The Dolphins pass rush was held at bay in Sunday's 29-10 loss to the Bills, as the team ended up with no sacks in Week 2.

Linebackers Olivier Vernon and Cameron Wake combined for no sacks or tackles for losses in the game, and neither registered a quarterback hit either. Vernon racked up six tackles -- five solo -- while Wake had just one assisted stop.

Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is excited about the overhaul of the receiving corps, notably the additions of tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Kenny Stills, according to the team's official website.

Philbin started off by complimenting Cameron.

“I would say the one thing that (Cameron brings)?would be big skill if I can just throw out that term,”?Philbin said. “He’s a little bit bigger than the tight ends we’ve had. He still runs very very well. I think that’s maybe a little bit of a different dimension. I think the down the middle of the field potentially you might see us attack the middle of the field a hair more. We’re excited about him.” 

The head coach went on to talk about how Stills fit into the Dolphins' offense.

“We thought he was a really good scheme fit in our offense,”?Philbin said. “I thought he had good production. A couple of things that stood out, we kind of a did a study of receivers in the league that had at least 50 catches and one of the things we liked about him, I think he was targeted about 84 times and I think he had 63 receptions. So he was second, I believe, in the league in terms of, if you throw him the ball, he’s going to catch it. We liked the fact that, when the quarterbacks threw him the ball, a high percentage of the time there were completed passes. That was one thing. We thought he was productive on third down. Statistically, conversions on third down. He fit what we do. I thought he’s a good route runner. He has good hands. His speed is good. I thought schematically he was a good fit.”
