When Nick Saban’s name is brought up around Dolphins fans, there’s normally a lot of resentment towards the former Dolphins head coach who bolted from the team years ago. But there is no denying that Saban develops some great players at Alabama. The Miami Dolphins recently drafted Minkah Fitzpatrick, who has even been referred to as “Saban’s son”.

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

How Nick Saban feels about Miami Dolphins’ Minkah Fitzpatrick | The Daily Dolphin
Nick Saban's Miami Dolphins tenure didn't exactly work out the way anyone would have liked, but he is arguably the greatest coach in college football history and he is a straight-shooter with NFL officials when it comes to his prospects.

This is pretty much it. The Dolphins have added a few, lost a few (stow those #23, #14, #93 and #51 jerseys deep in closet) and are pretty much through free agency and the draft. Vegas isn't convinced. But the games aren't played in Vegas (at least not yet).
