According to some oddsmakers, the Dolphins clearly have an upgrade at defensive end. The Dolphins lost the young Olivier Vernon and replaced him with veteran Mario Williams. These oddsmakers have Williams recording 10.5 sacks to Vernon's 7.5 this year. These are just predictions and it's fun to speculate. If Williams returns to his old self, I don't see why he can't reach that sack total.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
