The Miami Dolphins got some cap relief when the calendar flipped to June since cornerback Byron Jones was a post-June 1 designation. For months now Minnesota Vikings running back, Dalvin Cook, has been linked to the Dolphins. We are still not sure if the Vikings will release him or find a trade partner or perhaps Cook just takes the pay cut that the team wants him to. If the Dolphins choose to pursue Cook via signing or trade, they have the cap space now but they could also use that money to shore up some depth elsewhere or perhaps another veteran player could become available within the next couple of weeks.

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