DOLPHINS RUNNING BACKS:

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller doesn't mind increased workload | FOX Sports
Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller won't mind an increased workload in the regular season. Entering his fourth season and coming off a career-best 1,099 yards and eight touchdowns in 2014, he might be ready to ask for more carries.

DOLPHINS WIDE RECEIVERS:

Armando Salguero: Rishard Matthews turns bad history into positive future with Miami Dolphins | Miami Herald
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews last season was scratched from as many games (two) for disciplinary reasons as he had touchdown catches. This spring he made more headlines by holding out during workouts than holding on to passes. He is more known for catching hell from coaches than catching footballs from Ryan Tannehill.

DOLPHINS TIGHT ENDS:

Sims Serving As A Mentor For His Fellow Tight Ends
Sims and newcomer Jordan Cameron are the only two tight ends on the roster who have caught a pass in the NFL, but Sims has the advantage of having played in the Dolphins offense for a full year.

DOLPHINS DEFENSIVE LINE:

Sunday was Andrew Franks’ turn in the Dolphins’ kicking battle, and the free-agent signee responded by making 4-of-6 field-goal attempts, including a 52-yarder. And best of all for him, he couldn’t be blamed for one of his misses.

NOTEBOOK: Mitchell Has A Fullback Flashback; Other Notes
The defensive tackle played fullback at the University of Arizona as a freshman and sophomore before switching over to the defensive line.
