Slow news weekend, but the good news is training camp is just around the corner. The Dolphins added two new safeties in Nate Allen and T.J. McDonald. Allen is the starter by default as McDonald will have to serve an eight game suspension. But when McDonald comes back, he may be the starter across from Reshad Jones.

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