According to Pro Football Focus, the Miami Dolphins had the 6th best special teams unit in the league. Before the season started, the team decided to release Andrew Franks and Matt Darr in favor for Cody Parkey and Matt Haack. Parkey was solid all year, while Haack was a bit inconsistent. However, like ever season, Michael Thomas is the Dolphins best special teams player. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent and the team will have to decide if they will keep their special teams ace. A Darren Rizzi death stare may sway the Dolphins to keeping Thomas.

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