The Dolphins made a big splash with the signing of Byron Jones, who is considered one of the best cornerbacks in the league. But the Dolphins already had a star corner in Xavien Howard, when healthy. Some my have thought that the team was looking to move on from Howard as he’s struggled to stay healthy and was involved in an incident after the season ended, but the charges were dropped. Now it looks like the Dolphins are going to be putting both of these dominant players together and hopefully shut down a lot of opposing quarterbacks.

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

It appears the Dolphins acquired Byron Jones in free agency to pair him with Xavien Howard, not to replace Howard, who has had his share of injuries and a legal issue.
