The Splash Zone 5/2/17: Dolphins Exercise Ja’Wuan James’ Fifth Year Option

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.

The deadline for teams to pick up options is this Wednesday and the team has made a decision with Ja’Wuan James. The team will pick up his fifth-year option and they believe he can develop into a premier right tackle in this league. James struggled at the beginning of last season and ended up being benched. That seemed to have lit a fire under James as his game really stepped up in the latter half of the season.

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