According to reports yesterday, Mario Williams was on his way to visit with the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are in need of some help at defensive end, because they are at risk of losing Olivier Vernon and Derrick Shelby. It seems those two may not be back next year and the Dolphins could look to add through free agency or take a look at a talented defensive draft class. Williams would be a cheaper option than Vernon.

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