This season is all about finding out what the Dolphins have moving forward. That means the younger players are going to get chances to prove themselves and there are a couple of them already stepping up. Mark Walton comes to mind as no one expected him to be more than the RB3 entering training camp, but he has managed to work his way up and is now the starting running back. Mike Gesicki is starting to finally get noticed in the passing game and made some highlight reel catches against the Bills. The Dolphins are one of the youngest teams in the league and with a stockpile of resources for this offseason, if they get it right, this team is going to be good.

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