We knew the Miami Dolphins offense was going to look different after the hiring of Mike McDaniel. What we may not have expected was the Dolphins defense to run it back after a slow start to the season.

Emmanuel Ogbah and pretty much every Dolphins defensive free agent re-signed with the team and Xavien Howard finally got that contract extension he badly wanted.

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