NFL: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The term tanking has been used, but I prefer to use rebuild. The Dolphins are planning on acquiring young talent instead of paying for overpriced veterans this offseason. The team needs to find a quarterback, as Ryan Tannehill is not expected back next season and he also expects not to be back. It’s highly unlikely the Dolphins will get a chance to draft one of the top quarterbacks in this years draft, which is why their aiming to get their future franchise quarterback in next years draft. It’s probably going to be a rough season, but hang in there and hope that the team can find some talented prospects.

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