The Miami Dolphins needed to upgrade some pieces on their defense and they did just that by adding Jalen Ramsey and David Long Jr. On the offensive side of the ball, they still need to figure out what they are doing at left guard and right tackle. The team seems content to run it back with Liam Eichenberg and Austin Jackson as starters, but the fans really don’t want to see that. Dan Feeney was added to provide some depth at guard and center, but it sounds like he’ll get a chance to compete for some starting time.

For the rest of the offense though, their really didn’t need to be much change. The team is running it back with their running backs, but don’t be surprised if the Dolphins draft one in the upcoming NFL Draft. An upgrade at backup quarterback was needed and hopefully Mike White provides just that. Wide receiver wasn’t a need, but the addition of Braxton Berrios is a huge plus since he provides special teams value.

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