The Miami Dolphins had a pretty solid roster when the season came to an end in January. There were some areas that needed improvement and the team addressed some of those these past couple of months. A coaching change on defense was needed and expectations should be high with Vic Fangio overseeing the Dolphins defense. Fangio even got some new toys to play with in Jalen Ramsey, David Long, and Cam Smith. Offensively, fans would like to see at least veteran addition to the offensive line. The front office seems to have trust in Austin Jackson and Liam Eichenberg, but they also brought in Cameron Fleming for a visit before the draft.

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