Jadeveon Clowney wants to play for a championship team and he won’t get that by coming to Miami. It was reported last week that the Dolphins were interested in the star pass rusher but he didn’t like the idea. The Dolphins met with him, along with Brian Flores, in hopes of persuading him to re-evaluate his thoughts on the rebuilding franchise. No one is quite sure what it is going to take to get Clowney on their team but it apparently doesn’t include a first round pick.

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