The Splash Zone 3/12/17: Team Looking For Depth On Defense And O-Line

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.

Things were quiet at Dolphins HQ on Saturday as there was no roster activity to report. But that doesn't mean the team wasn't doing anything.
