Miami Dolphins News, Rumors, Injuries & Recruiting
Fansided: Miami Dolphins best left tackles over the last twenty years
Someday maybe we will look back on Laremy Tunsil and say his name in the same sentence as Richmond Webb who should be in the Hall of Fame. For now, we can just say that Tunsil is becoming everything we need in a left tackle.
As we look at the best three left tackles since 2000, we may as well start with Tunsil.
The best thing that may have ever happened to the Miami Dolphins was a released video mere minutes prior to the 2016 NFL Draft with Laremy Tunsil smoking pot.
Fansided: Jakeem Grant is not 100% but can still blow by defenders
Jakeem Grant is not 100%. He will tell you this. He is out practicing every day with his teammates but he knows there are limitations that he is putting on himself and the team as well.
Grant is working to recover from his season ending 2018 injury. An injury that he says was fortunate not to be an Achille's tear. Now, as the team progresses their off-season workouts, Grant is getting up to speed. Literally.
"I can get up to full gear. I'm still, with the injury and with me not being 100 percent, I can still easily run past guys.
PhinManiacs: Dolphins sign 24-year old DT Adolphus Washington to 1-year deal
A former Ohio State product, Washington is entering his fourth season at the professional level. Washington opened his playing career with the Buffalo Bills, starting in 21 of a possible 31 games, from 2016-2018. Washington totaled 3.5 sacks in three seasons with the Bills.
Most recently, Washington spent a short stint with the Cincinnati Bengals, producing one sack in four games. The Bills selected Washington in the third round (80th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Washington is a young, athletic player who could thrive if given the opportunity to succeed. This move further displays Miami's commitment to a youth movement, taking young, developing players and trying to get the most out of them that they can.
Fansided: Old man Daniel Kilgore will be a key player for the Miami Dolphins in '19
In 2018, the Miami Dolphins felt really good about adding Daniel Kilgore to the roster and letting Mike Pouncey leave after they released him. Pouncey went to the Pro Bowl and Kilgore landed on IR early in the year.
Kilgore is the old man in the offensive line room and he is trying to have an impact on that unit. Between the Dolphins and the 49'ers, Kilgore has spent eight seasons in the NFL he has had six head coaches and too many OC's to count. He just wants to do his job and continue to grow even though his body needs some extra rest.
The Phinsider: Friday Night Random Live Thread: Victory Of The Week Vol. 352

The Phinsider: Biggest 'What If' in Dolphins history
A couple of days ago, our old friend and former contributor to The Phinsider Ryan Yousefi posed at the Miami New Times an article looking at the "Five Biggest "What If's" in Miami Sports History." He also asked Twitter for more Miami sports "What Ifs." Of course, my thoughts were immediately on Miami Dolphins 'what ifs.'
There is an obvious number one (and two?) for the Dolphins, so I am going to take that away from your answers. The 'what ifs' surrounding Drew Brees are not allowed to be used - because everyone would answer those.
Fansided: Miami Dolphins Kenyan Drake will have to battle for starting job
Kenyan Drake is an electric player but there is something about him that doesn't get the attention of the coaching staff. In 2018, then Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase opted to go with Frank Gore as his starter and when Gore went to the IR, Gase turned to Kalen Ballage.
Many believed that the turn to Ballage was to see what he had to offer in a lost season at the end of the year. Now we have to wonder if that was the case at all. While it is hard to understand anything that Adam Gase did or continues to do with the Jets, it has been a complete mess in New York, the new coaching staff expects results when it comes to winning a job.
I hate messes. I love being organized and clean.Get to know @chandlercox10! #FinsUp https://t.co/hTcpPqTGzU

The Phinsider: The Gase Race Heats Up In The Big Apple
Well, that didn't take long. Just four months after having been hired by the New York Jets to become their head coach, Adam Gase has won a stunning power struggle in New York and engineered the ouster of former Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. What's more, Gase has also been named interim GM by the team's ownership, and will almost certainly have considerable input into who Woody and Chris Johnson ultimately bring in to run the team's personnel department.
This is just the latest chapter in the the rollercoaster like, often incestuous soap opera known as the AFC East.
Fansided: Former Miami Dolphins Adam Gase proving Stephen Ross was right
When the 2018 Miami Dolphins season came to a close there was a lot of speculation on the future of head coach Adam Gase. Popular opinion from the local beat writers had Mike Tannenbaum being fired and Chris Grier being promoted. Both of those came true. Adam Gase was supposed to get another season. That part didn't happen.
According to multiple reports at the time, Gase and the Dolphins brass simply didn't see eye to eye. It is something that he has taken along with him to New York where the local media in the Big Apple are having a field day.

Fansided: Miami Dolphins announce change to Hard Rock Stadium exit strategy
If you have ever been to Hard Rock Stadium to watch a Miami Dolphins game or any other game or event you will know the pain it is of leaving the stadium grounds on foot. As CEO Tom Garfinkel refers to it, "no more playing Frogger".
Exiting the stadium in and of itself is not a big deal but if you are parked in one of the lots on the other side of the main road, getting to your car can be a headache as you wait for traffic and a few police officers to stop the traffic and let you cross.
