NFL: Miami Dolphins-Minicamp Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

After the defense seemed to be ahead on Tuesday, the Miami Dolphins offense responded yesterday and bounced back. Frank Gore got some work also after it was stated he would see very limited work to keep him fresh from training camp and the upcoming season. All three coordinators met with the media and talked about their units and how they’re progressing.

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

Congemi's Takeaways From Minicamp Day Two
Congemi's Takeaways From Minicamp Day Two

Dolphins Offense

What Miami Dolphins OC Dowell Loggains said Wednesday | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — Here is some of what Dolphins offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said Wednesday: • It's a great problem to have with four wide receivers, knowing all might not start. Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson are quarterback friendly. It could be a matchup situation.

Dolphins Running Backs

Miami Dolphins coordinator on Kalen Ballage: ‘You draw them up like that’ | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — We'll see what happens when the pads go on and the players are tackling and hitting and — blocking. We'll see how rookie running back Kalen Ballage looks when the real NFL stuff starts. But man, Ballage looks good in that number 33 aqua and orange jersey this spring.

Dolphins Wide Receivers

Dolphins’ Jakeem Grant faces long odds in quest for snaps at receiver | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — Jakeem Grant didn’t blink when the Dolphins went out and signed two expensive slot receivers to replace Jarvis Landry, rather than move him into that vacancy. Honestly, he probably saw it coming a mile away.

Dolphins Offensive Line

Miami Dolphins right guard Jesse Davis makes ‘huge jump’ in offseason | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — The Dolphins are putting a lot of trust in right guard Jesse Davis, who bounced around looking for work before earning a spot as a backup last year.

Dolphins Defense

Which Miami Dolphins undrafted rookies have impressed DC Matt Burke? | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — The Dolphins did well sifting through undrafted free agents last season and found six that were good enough to play for them. That group included linebacker Chase Allen, who was an opening day starter.

What Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke said Wednesday | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE -- Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke should be pretty happy this week. His side of the ball has been winning a lot of the 11-on-11 drills during offseason practices, and it looks like he's got more than enough talent throughout the depth chart.

Dolphins Linebackers

Minkah Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins were back to work in minicamp this morning. (Allen Eyestone/The Post) DAVIE -- The Dolphins are in their second practice of mandatory minicamp this morning, and the offense is trying to bounce back from a rough day.

Dolphins Secondary

Miami Dolphins CB Cordrea Tankersley: ‘It’s my job to lose’ | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — At the NFL owner's meetings in March, Dolphins coach Adam Gase outlined the approach he wanted cornerback Cordrea Tankersley to take into this season.

Minkah Fitzpatrick sees some things in common between Saban, Gase – ProFootballTalk
On the surface, Nick Saban and Adam Gase don't seem all that similar. Rookie first-round cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick sees it differently. Which makes sense, given that Gase once worked for Saban. “They’re both very passionate coaches," Fitzpatrick told reporters on Tuesday.

Dolphins Minicamp

AC In The AM: It's Early June; Here's What We Know
Another phase of the offseason program began on Tuesday: a three-day minicamp. The biggest difference between minicamp and OTAS, which conclude next week, is that minicamp is mandatory and OTAs are optional. My opinions and insights, though, are always optional. Here’s a 12-pack to consider.

Dolphins Rookies
