Dolphins draft prospects: Miami checks out TE Wes Saxton

MIami Dolphins tight ends coach Dan Campbell was at South Alabama's Pro Day on Monday, checking out tight end prospect Wes Saxton. The 2015 offseason may become the year of the tight end for the Miami Dolphins.

That earlier squad looked able to beat anyone, and later, perhaps inevitably, they looked capable of losing to anyone. When your team appears to do as well as it has for such a stretch,...

Asked earlier this season to handicap a fictional Boston Celtics intrasquad dunk contest, Evan Turner scanned Boston's locker room and admitted that the Celtics don't have any real high-flyers. Turning his attention to veteran Gerald Wallace, Turner added, "Every now and then, when Gerald is feeling great, he can get up." Midway through the second quarter of Monday's potentially pivotal battle-for-the-eighth-seed tilt against the Charlotte Hornets, Wallace confirmed Turner's declaration.
