Position Listing
MarQueis Gray
News
The Dolphins and Gray agreed to a contract Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Landing the second tight-end role out of training camp, Gray earned 26 offensive snaps and 75 more on special teams over the first four games of 2015, during which he hauled in his only target. In the same game, though, he sustained a broken forearm and spent the rest of the season on injured reserve. Upon joining the Dolphins, he'll compete for one of the few TE spots behind Jordan Cameron.

Jahwan Edwards
No Updates
Vinston Painter
News
Browns running back Luke Lundy had to leave Sunday's practice after sustaining a concussion, reports the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Moreover, offensive tackle Vinston Painter suffered a neck injury, which also forced him to leave practice early.

Greg Jennings
News
Jennings was released by the Dolphins on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

The 32-year-old played in all 16 games for Miami last season but was an afterthought in the offense, seeing just 36 targets. He has done little since leaving Green Bay after the 2012 season, and it's hard to imagine Jennings will return to relevance in 2016 no matter where he lands.

A.J. Cruz
No Updates
Branden Albert
News
Dolphins offensive lineman Branden Albert (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Titans.

Albert had been limited in practice all week, but that won't prevent him from suiting up to occupy a vital role in Week 6.

Tony Lippett
News
Tony Lippett was the Big Ten receiver of the year last season, but the Dolphins, who drafted him in the fifth round, see him as a cornerback. 

Lippett is converting to the defensive backfield in OTAs. Early returns are good. He had three interceptions in Monday's practice.

"He doesn’t have a ton of position experience there in games, but he seems to be a guy that’s learned the system pretty well," coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. "Every rep that he gets is extremely valuable at this stage of his development. I caught a couple of them, I?was bouncing back and forth, and he went up and high-pointed one of the balls. He was in the right place at the right time."

Koa Misi
News
Misi restructured his contract with the Dolphins on Saturday.

The Dolphins restructured their deals with Misi and Ndamukong Suh, and released Greg Jennings, freeing up some cap room to work with this offseason. Misi tallied a career-high 78 tackles (59 solo) in 13 games last season but failed to record a sack.

Xavien Howard
News
The Dolphins selected Howard in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 38th overall.

Howard (6-0, 201) stumbled a bit at the Combine, logging a 4.58-second 40-yard dash and 33-inch vertical, but he improved drastically at the Baylor pro day, running a 4.44 40 and improving his vertical to 38.5 inches. Howard's film isn't as good as the other corners to get drafted to this point, but if his pro day numbers are an accurate insight into his athleticism, he should possess similar upside. He in any case has the size and athleticism to develop into a starting NFL corner, which Miami needs.

Jermon Bushrod
News
Bears offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Already facing the possibility of playing without QB Jay Cutler and WR Alshon Jeffery -- both questionable with hamstring injuries -- for a second straight week, the Bears will now be missing their starting left tackle. That's never a good thing, but it's especially worrisome when Khalil Mack is on the other team. Mack normally moves all over the place, but Oakland may have him spend more time on the offense's left side to test out replacement LT Charles Leno.

Jamar Taylor
News
Taylor may have lost his starting job, reports the Miami Herald.

Taylor just has not performed up to expectation and at this point the team is willing to try just about anything to bust out of their slump.

Matt Darr
No Updates
Billy Turner
News
The Dolphins ruled running back LaMichael James, linebacker Jelani Jenkins, linebacker Koa Misi, linebacker Jonathan Freeny, linebacker Chris McCain, offensive lineman Nate Garner and offensive lineman Billy Turner inactive for Week 15 against New England.
Tyler Murphy
News
Murphy was promoted from the practice squad Saturday.

Murphy was brought up in the likely event that Ben Roethlisberger is unable to return from his knee injury to play Sunday against the Chiefs, with Landry Jones getting the start after Michael Vick was ruled out with a hamstring injury. Murphy, who isn't likely to see the field if Jones avoids an injury, played quarterback at Florida and Boston College during his collegiate years, but after going undrafted he signed as a free agent with the Steelers, who were trying to develop him into a wide receiver.

Michael Thomas
News
Thomas finished the 2015 season with 85 tackles.

While the tackle numbers are solid, they came without any big plays as Thomas was held without a turnover or sack. The Dolphins could look to upgrade safety during the off-season.

Ulrick John
News
The Colts will have a very deep offensive line for OTAs. Currently, the team's roster features 10 players that have started in the NFL, per Colts.com

The Colts will have battle for starting spots at center and on the right side of the line. 

Khaled Holmes enters the offseason as the starting center, but he'll be pushed by Jonotthan Harrison, who started 10 games last season. 

At right guard, offseason acquisition Todd Herremans has the inside track, but he'll compete with Hugh Thornton, a veteran of 20 NFL starts. 

Gosder Cherilus, returning from knee and groin injuries that landed him on injured reserve last season, will start OTAs as the right tackle. Joe Reitz and Ulrick John will compete for the job. 

Kraig Urbik
News
Bills left guard Kraig Urbik took a pay cut of $1.5 million this year and $1.7 million next year, reports ESPN.com. Urbik, who is signed through 2016, played in every game last year, starting nine.
Andre Branch
News
Branch has agreed to a one-year contract with the Dolphins, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

A continuance of the Dolphins' defensive overhaul, the signing of Branch helps retool a unit already deprived of the services of Olivier Vernon and Derrick Shelby, as both have already signed elsewhere this offseason. Furthermore, Miami and DE Cameron Wake (Achilles) are still at odds over a potential contract extension, but Branch will at least form a rotation with Mario Williams and potentially Dion Jordan (suspension). In the event that Wake holds out or lands elsewhere come the start of the season, Branch figures to assume a sizable role and build upon his 2015 stat line of 24 tackles, including four sacks, and two forced fumbles across 13 games as a member of the Jaguars. However, should Wake return, Branch could struggle to gain fantasy relevance.

Isa Abdul-Quddus
News
Abdul-Quddus says he is open to moving to free safety next season, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Abdul-Quddus took over at strong safety midway through the season last season with the Lions and turned in the best season of his five-year career. After signing with the Dolphins earlier in the week, the 26-year-old made it known that he was open to switching to free safety. Reshad Jones is the current starter at strong safety in Miami and is also coming off the best season of his career. "I know he had a great year last year so I'm comfortable with something different. I'm just open to playing whatever", Abdul-Quddus said in an interview on Friday.

Kenyan Drake
News
The Dolphins selected Drake in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 73rd overall.

Drake is the third running back selected after Ezekiel Elliott and Derrick Henry. He showed a lot of rawness at Alabama but is certainly explosive, showing good open-field running that translates especially well on kick returns and passing downs. Playing as a backup for the length of his Alabama career, Drake ran for 1,495 yards and 18 touchdowns (6.4 YPC) while catching 46 passes for 570 yards and four touchdowns. It's hard to see Drake stealing more than off-the-bench work from Jay Ajayi.

Shelley Smith
News
The Broncos have reportedly agreed to terms with offensive guard Shelley Smith, according to the Denver Post. The team later confirmed the report. Smith was cut by the Dolphins last week after just one season. The deal with the Broncos is reportedly for two years and worth $5.65 million, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The five-year veteran has only played in three seasons due to injury and only started three of 11 games in 2014 for Miami. He also visited with the Seahawks before talking with Denver.

Damien Williams
News
Williams (thumb) is active for Sunday's game at Buffalo.

Williams is available to the Dolphins today, but he does not touch the ball enough to be much of a factor to fantasy teams.

DeVante Parker
News
Parker tore scar tissue in his surgically-repaired left foot in Week 8 of the 2015 season, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

At the time of the injury, the Dolphins stated Parker was merely dealing with a soft-tissue injury in the foot, but clarification of the ailment implies the reason that he was inactive just one week later and earned four snaps combined between Weeks 10 and 11. Although the No. 14 pick of the 2015 NFL Draft fell short of expectations due to continued issues with the foot, he still accrued 22 receptions (on 42 targets) for 445 yards and three touchdowns across the final six games of the season. If he avoids similar pratfalls as a sophomore, such production would seem to reflect well for his potential under the direction of first-year head coach Adam Gase.

Matt Moore
News
The Dolphins and Moore agreed to a two-year, $3.5 million contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Moore has logged very few snaps in four seasons as Ryan Tannehill's primary backup, completing 16 of 30 passes for 229 yards and one touchdown versus two interceptions. Expect Moore to serve in a similar capacity during the upcoming deal, barring injury.

Jordan Williams
No Updates
Matt Hazel
News
The Dolphins listed the following players as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Jets: Rishard Matthews, Walt Aikens, Dallas Thomas, Matt Hazel, LaMichael James, Deandre Coleman and Sam Brenner.
Zach Vigil
No Updates
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
News
The Dolphins claimed Ekpre-Olomu off waivers from the Browns on Tuesday.

Ekpre-Olomu has endured a rough 16-month stretch due to a torn ACL sustained in a December of 2014 practice while still a student-athlete at the University of Oregon. Projected to be plucked in the first or second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, he tumbled to the seventh round and upheld the expectation that he wouldn't play as a rookie. With new management in Cleveland, a recent MRI on the knee was concerning enough for the organization to cut ties with the cornerback, but the Dolphins will nonetheless see if Ekpre-Olomu can channel his previous talent.

Injury
Knee - Probable for start of season
Mario Williams
News
Williams missed the first day of voluntary minicamp due to a personal issue, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Apparently the issue could not be avoided but still the Dolphins can't be happy that one of their big offseason additions won't be around for at least the first day of minicamp. Williams will be expected to help pressure the quarterback this season for Miami.

Deandre Coleman
News
The Dolphins listed the following players as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Jets: Rishard Matthews, Walt Aikens, Dallas Thomas, Matt Hazel, LaMichael James, Deandre Coleman and Sam Brenner.
Anthony Steen
News
The Cardinals have deemed the following players as inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Panthers: Drew Stanton, Brittan Golden , Chris Clemons , Jonathan Cooper, Alameda Ta'amu, Anthony Steen , and Kareem Martin.

Cooper has missed the past two games for Arizona with a wrist injury.

The Cardinals are 5 1/2-point underdogs for Saturday's game.

Walt Aikens
News
Dolphins cornerback Walt Aikens was suspended for the season finale Sunday for missing a team meeting after he was involved in a domestic dispute at his Sunrise home, per WINZ-AM.

The report further claimed, per a source, that there was no physical violence with his girlfriend, but that his phone was smashed.

Dallas Thomas
News
Dolphins rookie Jamil Douglas continues to gain first-team snaps at left guard in OTAs. 

Douglas is competing with Dallas Thomas for the starting job. Over the last few weeks, he's gone from occasional snaps to a 50/50 split of starting snaps. 

"I like the fact that when he’s been in there he doesn’t make a lot of mental mistakes,” coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. “I think he’s grasped the system relatively well. I think his play speed’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to hesitate a lot and that’s a good sign for a young guy. ... I really like what I see."

Terrell Manning
News
The Giants waived a pair of veterans Thursday, releasing linebacker Terrell Manning and wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, per ProFootballTalk.com.

Manning appeared in one game for New York and three for the Bears last season, while Ogletree played for the Giants and Lions in 2014. 

Zac Dysert
News
Tyler Patmon
News
Patmon was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Patmon appeared in 11 games earlier in the season as a member of the Cowboys before being released on Dec. 15. He'll join the Dolphins in what will likely be a limited role over the final two weeks of the season. To clear a roster spot, Miami cut defensive end Jordan Williams.

Julius Warmsley
News
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Jordan Phillips
No Updates
Isaiah Pead
News
The Dolphins have signed Pead, the Miami Herald reports.

After making attempts to add C.J. Anderson and Chris Johnson to their backfield mix, the Dolphins will now add Pead to the depth mix behind Jay Ajayi, but his addition is not likely to be the team's last move to fortify the running back position. The 26-year-old -- who was a 2012 second-round pick by the Rams -- was limited to two carries for three yards in two games last season, and he thus has much to prove before approaching fantasy consideration.

Chris Jones
News
The Dolphins have claimed Jones off waivers from the Patriots, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Now healthy, Jones, who missed last season with a calf injury, will bolster the Dolphins' interior line depth. While starting 23 of 28 games for the Patriots between the 2013 and 2014 seasons, Jones tallied a total of 79 tackles and nine sacks.

Sam Young
News
With starting right tackle Austin Pasztor rupturing his hamstring Week 13, the Jaguars will replace him with rookie Josh Wells or veteran Sam Young, reports the Florida Times-Union. Wells filled in for Pasztor against the Giants, logging 41 snaps.

"Wells did a pretty good job when he stepped in," coach Gus Bradley told the paper. "The reason why we had him up [active] over Sam Young is because of his flexibility. He could play left tackle and right tackle. Sam does a good job at right tackle so we'll talk more about that, but it will be one of those two."

The Jaguars host the Texans on Sunday.

James-Michael Johnson
News
The Buccaneers waived-injured linebacker James-Michael Johnson on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reports. 

Johnson saw extensive action on special teams for the Buccaneers in Week 1, but he suffered an undisclosed injury that will prevent him playing for some time moving forward. The team has not yet announced who will be added to take Johnson's place.

Earl Mitchell
News
Mitchell (calf) is inactive Sunday against the Patriots.

Despite putting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, Mitchell will miss his third game in a row. In his absence, Jordan Phillips is likely to see extensive action at right defensive tackle.

Shamiel Gary
News
The Bears announced several minor roster moves on Monday. The team signed safety Shamiel Gary and tight end Jacob Maxwell to their practice squad, according to the team's official website. The team also elevated cornerback Terrance Mitchell to 53-man roster from practice squad and waived linebacker Terrell Manning.
Leonte Carroo
News
The Dolphins selected Carroo in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 86th overall.

It's not a good landing spot for Carroo's fantasy value -- Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker aren't going anywhere -- but it's an excellent value for the Dolphins. Carroo is an innately skilled receiver with adequate athleticism to project as a legitimate NFL contributor, and his incredible production at Rutgers gives reason to believe he'll produce if he gets targets. The target count could be meager for the foreseeable future, though.

Neville Hewitt
News
Hewitt will make his first NFL start Sunday at home versus the Cowboys, reports the Dolphins web site.

The Dolphins have suffered several injuries to their linebacking corps which necessitates Hewitt starting.

Jamil Douglas
News
Dolphins rookie Jamil Douglas continues to gain first-team snaps at left guard in OTAs. 

Douglas is competing with Dallas Thomas for the starting job. Over the last few weeks, he's gone from occasional snaps to a 50/50 split of starting snaps. 

"I like the fact that when he’s been in there he doesn’t make a lot of mental mistakes,” coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. “I think he’s grasped the system relatively well. I think his play speed’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to hesitate a lot and that’s a good sign for a young guy. ... I really like what I see."

Jelani Jenkins
News
Jenkins had 71 tackles in 13 games for the Dolphins this past season.

Jenkins won the starting role in training camp but failed to impress as the season rolled along. He didn't record a sack or turnover and overall was just an average linebacker. The Dolphins will likely look for an upgrade here before next year.

Ndamukong Suh
News
Suh was a no show for the first day of the Dolphins voluntary minicamp, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

It's late April so this really doesn't mean all that much other than to prove once again that Suh marches to the beat of his own drummer and it not all that interested in being a leader for his defensive teammates.

Charles Tuaau
No Updates
Chris McCain
News
McCain (knee) season ended Tuesday as he was placed on IR, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

McCain and Koa Misi were both placed on IR after the game Sunday. McCain's 2015 campaign ends with two whole tackles and a sack. Safe to say he won't be missed.

Injury
Knee - Probable for start of season
Jarvis Landry
News
Landry secured six of 11 targets for 72 yards in Sunday's 20-10 victory over the Patriots.

The 23-year-old received double-digit targets for the fourth straight week, and finished the season with a whopping 165 looks from Ryan Tannehill. He impressively converted 110 of those into receptions, which netted 1157 yards. Landry is undoubtedly one of the best short-to-intermediate receivers in the NFL, while also ranking favorably in the yards-after-catch category. With a new coaching staff--and with it, a new offensive system--on its way to South Florida, Landry should nevertheless continue as one of the focal points of the Dolphins' aerial attack.

Jordan Cameron
News
The Dolphins have restructured Cameron's contract in order to gain a degree of salary cap relief, the Miami Herald reports.

Per the agreement, Cameron's base salary for 2016 has been reduced from $7.5 million to $6 million, while more importantly ensuring that the tight end will be retained this coming season after he was limited to 35 catches for 386 yards and three TDs in his first year with the Dolphins. Under new coach Adam Gase, who believes that Cameron is a good fit within his offensive system, the tight end could be in a for a bounce-back season, assuming he can avoid the sort of injury issues that hampered him during his four-year stint with the Browns.

Griff Whalen
News
Whalen has signed with the Dolphins.

Whalen arrives in Miami after finishing last season with 19 catches for 205 yards and one touchdown in 14 games played. Waived by the Colts in January, Whalen adds depth to the Dolphins' options at wide receiver and on special teams.

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.

Cleyon Laing
No Updates
Damontre Moore
News
Moore was claimed off waivers by Miami, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

Moore was released by the Giants after a series of on and off the field problems. He has the ability to get to the quarterback so if he can mature quickly and keep his head on straight he could help a Dolphins defensive line that is short a pass rusher since the loss of Cameron Wake (Achilles) for the season.

Logan Thomas
News
The Dolphins signed Thomas off the practice squad and to the active roster Wednesday, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

It looks like the Dolphins may have been worried that another team would poach Thomas from their practice squad so they signed him rather than risk losing him. Teams like Baltimore, Houston, and Dallas could all be in the market for a young QB to tutor. Thomas won't see any playing time with Miami but rather carry a clipboard behind Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore.

Kiko Alonso
News
Alonso is expected to be healthy and ready for the 2016 season, Adam Beasley of the Miami Hearld reports.

Alonso was traded to the Dolphins earlier in the week and in an interview on Thursday he said his knee issues are "definitely behind me. I feel great." The Dolphins will hope he returns to form that put him on the map his rookie season in Buffalo when he recorded 159 tackles, four interceptions, and two sacks.

Andrew Franks
News
Franks was 13-16 on field goal attempts this season and 33-36 on point after tries.

Only 16 field goal attempts is a bit low but still an 81.3 success rate is solid. The Dolphins could always look to upgrade the position in training camp and will likely bring in some competition for Franks but he will still go into 2016 as the favorite to win the job.

Mike Hull
News
Hull was promoted from the Dolphins' practice squad on Saturday.

With Spencer Paysinger doubtful to play Sunday, Hull will offer some extra linebacker depth. To make room for Hull the Dolphins waived A.J. Francis.

Mike Pouncey

After suffering a knee injury in Saturday's preseason game, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey didn't express much concern, a feeling that would prove to be valid, as an MRI came back negative and the lineman was back at practice Monday, per the Miami Herald.

Pouncey said that he expects to be ready for the season opener. He recently signed an extension worth more than $40 million. 

Dion Jordan
News
Miami is open to having Jordan return to the team, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Jordan was suspended for all of the 2015 season for violating the League's substance abuse policy. The Dolphins still need help along the defensive line even with the addition of Mario Williams. Miami will meet with Jordan and if he convinces them that he is serious about staying in the NFL they will welcome him back to the team.

Injury
Suspension - Eligible to apply for reinstatement
Ja'Wuan James
News
The Dolphins have labeled linebacker Jonathan Freeny (hamstring) and cornerback Jamar Taylor (shoulder) out for Sunday's pivotal game against Baltimore. Guard Nate Garner (illness), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle) and linebacker Chris McCain (ankle) were deemed doubtful for Week 14.

Tight end Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) was the only player on the report deemed questionable. He was a limited participant all week leading up to Sunday.

Meanwhile, the following players were labeled as probable: Wide receiver Brian Hartline (knee), tackle Ja'Wuan James (neck), linebacker Jelani Jenkins (shoulder), center Samson Satele (ribs), wide receiver Mike Wallace (chest) and safety Jimmy Wilson (hamstring).

Bobby McCain
News
McCain missed practice Wednesday with a concussion, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

There is no word yet as to where in the concussion protocol McCain stands but it would seem unlikely at this point in time that he would play Sunday in San Diego.

Christion Jones
News
The Dolphins have signed Jones, the Miami Herald reports.

Jones, who spent time with the Dolphins in training camp last year before being waived/injured by the team, is now in line to compete for a reserve wideout/return role with Miami this coming summer.

Spencer Paysinger
News
Paysinger (neck) returned to game action Sunday with two tackles in a loss to the Jets.

Paysinger had missed two games due to the injury but was deemed healthy enough to return Sunday. After getting demolished by the Jets perhaps he wishes he was held out another week.

Jake Stoneburner
News
Dolphins tight end Dion Sims has been ruled out for the Sunday clash in London, reports Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post.

Sims hasn't played since sustaining a concussion in Week 1. And considering he didn't make the flight to England, it's clear he won't play against the Jets. Jake Stoneburner (three catches for 31 yards and a touchdown in two games) will once again fill in behind Jordan Cameron.

Terrence Fede
News
The Dolphins have listed Cortland Finnegan, LaMichael James, Chris McCain, Daryn Colledge, Anthony Johnson, Billy Turner and Terrence Fede as inactive Week 11 against the Bills.

Finnegan had been ruled out prior to the contest. Colledge came into the game listed as doubtful. The other five players are healthy scratches. 

Cameron Wake
News
Wake (Achilles) ran sprints with no noticeable limp at voluntary minicamp on Tuesday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Wake also took part in a sack drill that required hand and hip movement. He presumably isn't ready to make hard cuts, but it does seem he's on/ahead of schedule in his recovery from the torn Achilles he suffered in late October. The 34-year-old defensive end is believed to be seeking an extension as he enters the final year of his contract, and the Dolphins presumably hope to reduce his $9.8 million cap hit for 2016. If not for the major injury, it would actually be a very reasonable price tag for a player that had seven sacks and four forced fumbles in seven games last season.

Injury
Achilles - Probable for start of season
Kenny Stills
News
Head coach Adam Gase said Stills will be more involved in the offense in 2016, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Stills had a disappointing first season in Miami, catching just 27 passes for 440 yards and three touchdowns. Greg Jennings is no longer on the roster, but with DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry likely to account for a huge portion of the targets, Stills is still slated for a complementary role. That being said, he doesn't appear to have much competition, if any, for the No. 3 wide receiver job.

Jay Ajayi
News
As the NFL Draft approaches, Ajayi remains atop the Dolphins' running back depth chart, the Miami Herald reports.

Following the free agent departure of Lamar Miller, the team also rosters Jahwan Edwards, Isaiah Pead, Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams, but the report suggests that at this stage, "only Ajayi is guaranteed to be on the team this fall." With that in mind, there's a solid chance that the Dolphins will select a running back in next week's draft, so Ajayi -- a fifth-rounder in 2015 -- could well have some viable competition for the chance top serve as Miller's successor this coming season.

Dominique Jones
News
The Broncos have listed S T.J. Ward, RB Juwan Thompson, LB Brandon Marshall , OL Paul Cornick, OL Michael Schofield, TE Dominique Jones and DT Mitch Unrein as inactive Week 17 against the Raiders. 

Marshall was the only player ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Cornick and Ward were listed as questionable. Cornick is dealing with a toe injury. Ward has a neck issue. Thompson was actually listed as probable, but will not play. He has both hip and knee injuries. Unrein was also listed as probable. He's dealing with an illness. The other two players listed are healthy scratches. 

Louis Delmas
News
Dolphins safety Louis Delmas suffered a torn ACL in practice Wednesday and will miss the 2015 season, according to multiple reports. Delmas, who has a history of knee issues, missed the end of the 2014 season with a torn ACL.
Byron Maxwell
News
The Dolphins are slated to acquire Maxwell, along with Kiko Alonso and the 13th overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft from the Eagles in exchange for the eighth overall pick in the draft, ESPN.com reports.

For a time Wednesday morning, there was talk that the deal may be off due to reported concerns about Maxwell's shoulder, but evidently the Dolphins' medical staff cleared the cornerback, and he's now slated to join the 2016 Miami secondary. In his only season with the Eagles after signing a six-year, $63 million deal with the team, the 28-year-old recorded 64 tackles and two interceptions in 14 games.

Chimdi Chekwa
News
Cornerback Chimdi Chekwa has agreed to a one-year deal with the Raiders, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus, per NFL.com.

Chekwa, who has spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Raiders, signed with the Patriots in March. He was released Monday.

Chekwa has totaled 51 tackles (44 solo) and no interceptions in 32 career games.

Reshad Jones
News
Jones is unhappy with his current contract and said he won't participate in optional offseason activities unless he gets a new deal, reports Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

Easily the best player in Miami's porous 2015 secondary, Jones finished the season with 135 tackles, five interceptions and two sacks in 16 games. He has two years left on his contract and is already among the league's highest-paid safeties, but he likely hopes to gain more security, as the remainder of his contract contains little-to-nothing in the way of guaranteed money. Set to earn base salaries north of $7 million in both 2016 and 2017, the 28-year-old Jones is unlikely to continue his holdout once mandatory team activities begin. He's still one of the top IDP options among all NFL defensive backs.

Dion Sims
News
Sims had four receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown as Miami wrecked Tennessee 38-10 Sunday.

Sims didn't out target starting tight end Jordan Cameron (8-4), but he did have more receptions, yardage, and the same number of scores. All in all it was just good to see Sims back on the field after that scary looking concussion in England.

Ryan Tannehill
News
Tannehill's struggles passing this past season are an area new coach Adam Gase intends to improve by building better protection going forward, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Tannehill was sacked a whopping 45 times during 2015, making him the third-most sacked quarterback in the league. Along with taking so many hits, Tannehill's passer rating and completion percentage dropped. Nonetheless, like he did with Jay Cutler in Chicago, Gase intends to quell any quarterback concerns with the help of improved protection, showing his support for Tannehill as they enter their first season together.

Daniel Thomas
News
The Dolphins and Thomas (knee) agreed to a contract Thursday, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

After dabbling in but ultimately losing out on C.J. Anderson and Chris Johnson, the Dolphins are following a cheap path to production out of the backfield with the additions of Thomas and Isaiah Pead on Thursday. Thomas himself remained unemployed last season following his release from the Bears near the tail end of the preseason slate. In four previous campaigns with the Dolphins, he didn't exactly turn heads, averaging 3.6 YPC, hauling in 55 passes, and scoring 13 touchdowns in 52 games. If he's still with the team out of training camp, he'll more than likely play second fiddle, at best, to sophomore RB Jay Ajayi.

John Denney
News
Dolphins tight end Charles Clay is active Week 11 against the Bills.

Clay came into the game listed as questionable due to a knee injury. Clay was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. The team will also have John Denney, Kelvin Sheppard and Dion Sims available for the contest. All three players were also listed as questionable going into the game.
