The Splash Zone 3/17/17: Poe Visit Should Be A Wakeup Call For Phillips

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 pretty apparent that the Dolphins need more consistent play from Jordan Phillips who will be entering his third season with the team. The team was hoping to add Dontari Poe to the defensive line, but Poe ended up signing with the Atlanta Falcons yesterday. But just because the team was interested in Poe, doesn't mean that they don't think Phillips can take the next step. The team firmly believes he will take that step next season but nonetheless, the Poe visit should hopefully light a fire under Phillips.

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