The Miami Dolphins began their mandatory minicamp yesterday, but were short one player. Center Connor Williams was not in attendance as he is looking for a new contract. Head coach Mike McDaniel didn’t seem too upset with the unexcused absence, meaning the two sides could be working on a new deal as we speak. Zach Sieler, who sat out OTAs, was in attendance and would also like a new contract at some point since he is playing on the final year of his deal.

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