Tuesday Evening Random Live Thread

Photo by Doug Murray/Icon Sportswire via As this is one of our almost nightly posts (when there is not a live game thread, the NFL Draft, or the Phinsider Question Of The Day Post) please feel free to not only discuss the question/topic of the day if there happens to be one and/or anything else that may come to mind. This is a live thread where the rules are pretty much wide open, and you really can discuss nearly anything so long as you continue to follow the actual site rules. Also, we obviously encourage group discussions of our Miami Dolphins and the goings-on with...

Can Hunter Long stand out in a veteran-heavy tight end group?

Photo by Peter Joneleit/Icon Sportswire via Can the second-year pro make a strong impression on the new coaching staff? The Dolphins have released an initial depth chart with the NFL preseason arriving this weekend as Miami will play Tampa Bay on Saturday night. General manager Chris Grier and the team’s front office has until August 30 to trim the roster down to 53 players — and a practice squad. The team is headed in a new direction under first-year coach Mike McDaniel and in fact, Lynn Bowden Jr. and Preston Williams have reportedly been mentioned in trade...

YES! The Dolphins should call the Chicago Bears about a trade for linebacker Roquan Smith

YES! The Dolphins should call the Chicago Bears about a trade for linebacker Roquan Smith

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ But don’t hold your breath on Miami being the team to land the playmaking linebacker. Usually, when a player is released or on the trade block, Miami Dolphins fans come from all over the globe to state their case as to why Player A would be a valuable investment for their favorite team. I’m guilty of it. I sometimes tag the main account on Twitter or post an image of general manager Chris Grier on the phone. It’s what I do. But sometimes, nothing needs to be said because the player in discussion is #elite at their position. Chicago...

The Splash Zone 8/9/22: How Concerning Are The High Snaps From Connor Williams?

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours. When the Miami Dolphins signed Connor Williams, the belief was the he would just slide right into the left guard spot. But Mike McDaniel and the coaching staff believe that Williams would be better suited as a center. It’s been evident since the start of training camp that there is an issue with the exchange from center to quarterback with Williams. Shotgun snaps seem to be a...

Report: Dolphins shopping Preston Williams, Lynn Bowden, Jr.

Mike Stocker/South Florida Sun Sentinel/Tribune News Service via The unicorn could be disappearing from South Florida. Well, more than it already has. Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams has expressed frustration at his apparent lack of opportunity early in the team’s 2022 training camp period. A player who has flashed star potential at times since being signed as an undrafted free agent in 2019, Williams can make great plays. The problem is, he also disappears for long stretches of time, whether buried on the depth chart, unable to get open on the field,...

And let me reiterate, IT’S THE FIRST DEPTH CHART OF THE PRESEASON, SO DON’T LOSE YOUR MIND. .@miamidolphins depth chart for week 1 pre-szn matchup vs. tampa bay bucs #finsup...

Mike McDaniel happy with running backs group, letting position battle work itself out

Photo by Michael Reaves/ The Miami Dolphins struggled to run the ball in 2021, finishing 30th in yards per game (92.2) and 31st in yards per rush (3.5). To change that in 2022, the team has reworked the offensive line and added several new running backs to the roster. Veterans Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, and Sony Michel join the team this year, while Myles Gaskin, Savon Ahmed, and Gerrid Doaks return; the Dolphins also signed ZaQuandre White as an undrafted free agent and added fullbacks Alec Ingold and John Lovett. Improving the running game was clearly a priority...

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours. It’s starting to sound like a broken record, but it seems every practice Tyreek Hill or Jaylen Waddle are making big plays. At yesterday’s Miami Dolphins training camp practice, it was Waddle who was making the plays. Hill and Waddle bring plenty of speed to the table and should give opposing defenses headaches during the regular season. You can check out that story here,...
