Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Adds additional weight
Gesicki has put on 10 pounds of muscle during the offseason, Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Gesicki never had much of an opportunity to display the type of athleticism that made him a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, compiling just 22 catches and 220 yards in his rookie campaign. The largest knock on Gesicki's prospect profile was his inability to block, something that was likely on the mind of the Dolphins' brass when signing Dwayne Allen (primarily a blocking tight end), but the 23-year-old seems to be aware of the criticism, putting on additional muscle in an effort to be a more well-rounded option. Considering a rebuild seems to be a focal point in Miami, the Dolphins may well opt to give the majority of the snaps to their young tight end, particularly if he displays more promise as a blocker....

Dolphins' Laremy Tunsil: Fifth-year option exercised
The Dolphins exercised the fifth-year option on Tunsil's rookie contract Thursday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
The fifth year will net Tunsil $9.7 million but is only guaranteed for injury. The 2016 first-round pick is now slated to be Miami's starting left tackle for at least the next two seasons.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Charles Harris: Works out at linebacker
Harris was receiving some work at linebacker at Wednesday's training session, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Harris registered 19 tackles and one sack while being limited to 11 games during his sophomore campaign. The Dolphins' decision to work the defensive end out at a new position isn't overly surprising, as new coach Brian Flores is expected to use multiple defensive fronts in 2019. A 2017 first-round pick, Harris has yet to live up to expectations over his first two seasons in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Skipping voluntary minicamp
Jones (shoulder) isn't present Tuesday for the start of a three-day voluntary minicamp, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Jones showed up for the start of the offseason program a couple weeks ago and reportedly hasn't missed any team meetings. Coach Brian Flores didn't get too far into specifics when discussing the absence this week, merely saying that rehab from February shoulder surgery is one of several factors in the 31-year-old safety's decision to skip voluntary minicamp. As the highest-paid player on a rebuilding team, Jones has been a frequent subject of trade rumors this offseason, though his fully guaranteed $13.015 million base salary makes it tricky to find a deal. A trade would allow the Dolphins to use Minkah Fitzpatrick as a starting safety alongside T.J. McDonald, but the team may prefer that its 2018 first-round pick take most of his snaps as a slot corner.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Still rehabbing Achilles injury
Grant (Achilles) is still working his way back to full strength, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Grant suffered the season-ending injury Nov. 11 and had surgery a week later, but he denied early reports that the issue was an Achilles rupture. Whatever the case, he's still in the rehab process five months later, presumably hoping to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. The 26-year-old figures to have a role in the return game and could even challenge DeVante Parker for a regular spot in three-wide sets.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Albert Wilson: Still in rehab process
Wilson is still rehabbing from his season-ending hip injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Wilson hoped to regain full health before the start of Miami's offseason program, but he'll likely be limited or absent when the team begins practicing in May. He still has plenty of time to make it back for the start of training camp in late July, at which point he'll be nine months removed from suffering a small fracture and labrum tear in his hip. The 26-year-old won't have trouble earning snaps once he's healthy, as the Dolphins haven't signed a replacement for Danny Amendola (Lions). Wilson has the most slot experience among the team's current group of wide receivers.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Reece Horn: Heads to Miami
Horn signed a contract with the Dolphins on Tuesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Horn finds an NFL home after recording 28 receptions for 429 yards and one touchdown across seven games in the now defunct AAF. The 26-year-old signed with the Titans after going undrafted in 2016 but has yet to play in an NFL game.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Kenneth Farrow: Inks deal with Miami
Farrow is signing with the Dolphins, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Farrow caught on with the Chargers as an undrafted rookie in 2016, averaging 3.2 yards on 60 carries and 5.4 yards on 13 receptions. He hasn't played in a regular-season NFL game since that year, but he did spend time on the New England practice squad in 2018 and recently served as the top running back for the San Antonio Commanders of the AAF. The 26-year-old didn't make much of an impression during his eight-game AAF stint, taking 106 carries for 372 yards (3.5 average) and four touchdowns while adding 12 catches for 95 yards on 14 targets. Farrow is one of just three running backs on the Miami roster, though the team figures to add more competition behind Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage as the offseason progresses.... See More ...

Dolphins' Tyrone Holmes: Heading to Miami
Holmes signed a contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Holmes recorded 4.5 sacks and 11 quarterback hits in eight AAF games with the San Antonio Commanders. He previously spent time with the Chargers, Browns, Chiefs and Jaguars. The journeyman will look to secure a role on the Dolphins' 53-man roster this season.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jayrone Elliott: Getting chance in Miami
Elliott signed a contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Elliott showcased himself well across eight games with the San Antonio Commanders in the now-defunct AAF, having led the league with 7.5 sacks. The 27-year-old was a part of the Packers' pass-rush rotation in 2015 and 2016, recording four sacks among 43 tackles in 25 games. Since he was traded to Dallas in September 2017, though, he's appeared in just one NFL contest.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Durval Queiroz Neto: Joining Dolphins
Queiroz Neto has been allocated to the Dolphins as part of the NFL's International Player Pathway program.
Queiroz Neto has spent the last four years with Cuiaba Arsenal and Galo FA, two of Brazil's top teams, and has also competed for the Brazilian national team. The NFL's international program is allocating one player to every AFC East franchise this offseason, allowing each participant to join his team without taking up a spot on the 90-man roster. If Queiroz Neto does not make Miami's initial 53-man roster, he'll occupy an extra spot on the team's practice squad and will not be eligible to be promoted. The 6-foot-4, 325-pound defensive tackle is unlikely to see the field 2019, but is a promising developmental prospect.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Ricardo Louis: Latches on with Miami
Louis (neck) signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 2016 fourth-round pick was released by Cleveland last week after missing the entire 2018 campaign with a neck injury. Louis previously played all 32 games his first two NFL seasons, catching 45 of 96 targets (47 percent) for 562 yards (5.9 YPT) without any touchdowns. The inefficient production suggests he'll have a tough time sticking around in the NFL, though terrible quarterback play in Cleveland undoubtedly was a major factor. Louis will compete with the likes of Brice Butler and Isaiah Ford for a spot at the bottom of Miami's wideout depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Reshad Jones: Shows up for offseason program
Jones (shoulder) is in attendance for the Dolphins' voluntary strength and conditioning program, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Entering the second season of a four-year extension with his $13.015 million base salary for 2019 fully guaranteed, Jones has been mentioned as a possible trade candidate for the rebuilding Dolphins. He's still one of the better safeties in the league, but the price tag is rather hefty for a 31-year-old who is still rehabbing from surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his shoulder. Jones' attendance at the voluntary offseason program might be taken as a hint that he expects to stay with the Dolphins for at least one more year, though it's far from a sure thing.... See More ...
