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.


Clyde Christensen, Matt Burke, and Darren Rizzi met with the Dolphins media yesterday to discuss everything that has happened this offseason and what to expect from the team heading forward. Burke is the newest addition to the coordinator room as he takes over defensive play calling after the departure of Vance Joseph. Burke wasn’t ready to acknowledge anything on defense, but he doesn’t think the defense can get much worse. That side of the ball was pretty bad last season.
