The Miami Dolphins pass defense was pretty mediocre last season, but the team believes that have a promising group of players. There was constant miscommunication among the defensive backs last season which resulted in Lou Anarumo losing his job. Xavien Howard started stepping up and it looks like he could be ready to be the teams No. 1 corner. Cordrea Tankersley performed well for a rookie and Tony Lippett will be returning to the lineup after missing all of last season. We also can’t forget about how reliable Bobby McCain was all season.

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