Rose was signed by the Dolphins in October and appeared in five games, totaling one tackle.

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
While speaking at the combine, Dolphins general manager Dennis HIckey provided a minor update on left tackle Branden Albert's rehab process, per the Palm Beach Post.

"The rehab is going well. But it's a long rehab and it's a difficult (rehab)," Hickey said.

Albert ruptured the ACL and MCL in his right knee Nov. 9, and quarterback Ryan Tannehill was sacked 29 times without Albert protecting him the second half of the season. The Miami Herald reported earlier in January that the Dolphins are "beyond encouraged, and pleasantly surprised" with his recovery from surgery, and that he is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2015 opener.

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."

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.”

Kenny Stills
News
New Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills made it clear during his introductory press conference that he wasn't brought to Miami to be Mike Wallace's replacement. He's hoping to maximize his potential and create his own identity with the Dolphins, per ESPN.

"I don't think I was brought in to replace anybody," Stills said. "I'm just here to do whatever I can to help the team win. Mike is a great player, and I've looked up to everything he's done.

"I'm not focusing on my ceiling right now," Stills said. "I'm just excited to be here, happy to be here and working my tail off to make sure I can maximize my potential."

Stills was acquired by Miami in exchange for linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round pick on Friday. The Dolphins traded Wallace to the Vikings hours after completing their trade with New Orleans.

Stills, 22, was drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 draft out of Oklahoma. He caught 63 passes for 931 yards and three touchdowns last season, averaging a whopping 20.0 yards per catch. He fell 69 yards shy of his first 1,000-yard season in 2014, and still managed to average 14.8 yards per reception.
